Thunderbolt Casino Review
Thunderbird, Thunderclap and Thunderbolt - try to guess which of these is an online casino! That could be complicated, but the last option is correct. Thunderbird is an amazing old-school car, while Thunderclap has plenty of incarnations, and one of them is a creepy town created by Stephen King. You see, our reviews can really improve your outlook! Anyway, Thunderbolt Casino can be as weird as Thunderclap designed by King - it offers no live games and accepts only one currency, ZAR. Besides, the welcome package (up to 10,000 ZAR) wagering requirements are awful - 30xD+B for deposit bonuses and 60 times for the non-deposit one. Well, at least they have games from Real Time Gaming and a really wide selection of promotions, and provide 24/7 support service.
- 24/7 live chat;
- SSL encryption;
- Powered by Real Time Gaming;
- Mobile friendly;
- Nice selection of bonuses.
- The bonus is available to you only in case you live in South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Mozambique or Lesotho;
- Confusing terms and conditions;
- No live dealer games;
- The welcome bonus wagering requirements suck: 30xB+D or 60xB.
- ZAR is the only supported currency.
Pretty new, having just opened their doors in 2014, Thunderbolt Casino has their license from the Curacaoan government. The site design is fantastic and features nice soft colors with a very modern layout. Games are easy to find and all relevant information is literally a click or one scroll-wheel away. Really impressive job.
Customer Support: Player support is fantastic. The live chat agents reply in a moment. They also have an extensive FAQ section, and there are an email option and a toll-free number. The support team works round the clock. Well, shit, not bad at all.
“ZAR is the only currency accepted at Thunderbolt Casino”.
Banking: The banking options are quite good - Skrill, Neteller, credit cards, etc. But remember that the only supported currency is ZAR - South African Rand. Also, the maximum payout you can get per week is R25000. The Terms and conditions say nothing about if this clause refers to progressive winnings. We asked the support and they told us that in case of a jackpot winning you would only be able to withdraw the maximum for the bonus code you had used. Still confusing… Because of this, some other watchdog portals don’t really trust this casino. So do we, and you should also stay vigilant.
Software and Game Variety
Thunderbolt Casino is a Real Time Gaming casino, proudly displaying their logo on the bottom of their page. Here are some of the games you can enjoy there:

- Video poker: Bonus Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better, All American.
“A pretty impressive selection of games from just a single provider.”
Mobile and Live Gaming
The mobile version not only works but looks fracking awesome. Same cool color scheme and a good selection of games to play. Fewer than the desktop version, but that’s expected.
We do have to say that one of the negatives here is that there are no live games. Hopefully, these guys will add them in the future.
Bonuses and Promotions
Thunderbolt Casino offers tons of bonuses, but we’ll focus on their welcome package which has to be done in this exact order:
- 100% up to R2500 (Coupon code: FLASHMATCH1);
- 125% up to R2500 (Coupon code: FLASHMATCH2);
- 150% up to R2500 (Coupon code: FLASHMATCH3);
- No Deposit R2500 (Coupon code: ULTIMATEFLASH).
This package is subject to their wagering requirements of 30x the sum of the deposit and the bonus, and comes with a minimum deposit of R20. The non-deposit bonus has to be wagered 60 times, and its maximum cashout is 5 times the bonus amount. One more important thing - the welcome package is available to you only in case you live in South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland, Mozambique or Lesotho.
