Lucky Admiral - The Complete Review

Rrrrrrrrrrrrr! We will spare you the bad pirate impression as we take a look at the pirate themed online casino, the Lucky Admiral. Immediately upon navigating to the sites home page, we see what looks to be a heavily themed online slot and casino game site. The initial feelings about the graphics and the layout are good, and we'd have to say we have high hopes sailing into this review.

Now, our parents always told us growing up to never judge a book by its cover, and we've learned that certainly reigns true with online casinos. We've seen plenty of sites that look great upon a quick glance and then are utter garbage when you start peeling the layers away. As we know this is always a possibility, we decided to give the Lucky Admiral a full and thorough review.

As you may already know if you've seen any of our other reviews, we're not here to write puff pieces that give you warm and fuzzies about a site. We're here to give you the honest truth and the sometimes harsh realities of what a site has to offer. Basically, we're not going to ignore the bad and only focus on the good. We aim to give you a review that you can bank on and feel confident in our findings.

We NEVER allow sites to pay for reviews or incentivize or influence us to give them glowing reviews. The only way that a site is going to get a great review from us is if their product and track record deserve it. With all of the administrative disclaimers out of the way, let's sail headfirst into the world of pirates with the Lucky Admiral online casino.

Ratings Breakdown

Overall

Lucky Admiral was off to a strong start when we found out they were licensed by the UK Gaming Commission (one of, if not THE most reputable). Any site we review instantly jumps up the ladder when we know we can trust them and their reliability. In regards to game options, the site knocked it out of the park with slot games and fell a bit short when it came to casino options. A definite win if you're predominantly a slots player and a bit disappointing if you're into table games mainly.

Banking options were a bit limited, but it looks like the few options they have were set up well and operated efficiently and quickly. Deposit limits were extremely low on all options except for PayPal which had no limit. Overall, we'd say this site is pretty good, but not incredible.

Game Variety

Game selection for slot machines is great at the Lucky Admiral with a lot of quality games that include several branded games. Casino game selection was a lot lower than we would have liked making this site more of a slot player's home. They did have some options, though, which is nice if you do like to dabble in casino games. While it might not be fair to dock points here for this, we also took some points away for the organization of their games as the casino games and slots were all on the same list and not separated as we feel they should be. Overall, though, great game selection for slot players mainly.

Banking

This score may be a bit misleading as to how easy or difficult it is to deposit and withdraw from the casino. If you use PayPal, you're going to have a great experience because deposits are instant and withdrawals are extremely fast. The reason we docked several points here is that there aren't really many other options except for two that have sub-par options associated. Bottom line, if you use PayPal here, the score will be a lot higher than three out of five. If you want to use any other options, this rating holds, if not a little lower.

Bonuses

The bonus structure at Lucky Admirals was fairly strong with a lot of cool and creative options. They even had a welcome bonus you could get without making a deposit. We highly recommend at a bare minimum making an account to take advantage of that. The play through requirement on the bonuses was a little higher than we would like, but overall we were pretty pleased with the bonuses offered. It's also important to add that they do have a VIP players club with some nice rewards for frequent players. Details are posted below in the review.

Customer Service

The site had a lot of great options with email, live chat, and WhatsApp. However, the customer service options were only open from 9:30 am - 6 pm and were very surprisingly closed on the weekends. Normally, we wouldn't mind the limited hours even though 24/7 is the industry standard, but we had to dock some points because they're closed on the weekends when most people are playing.

User Interface

Let us start by saying that the graphics of the site and the games are great. Once you're in the games and playing, you're going to love the interface. Gameplay is easy and navigating around is also user-friendly. The reason we docked some points is due to the organization of their games. For some reason, they put all of the slot games and all of the casino games in the same section mixed together. While this is at worst a mild annoyance, it's still something we aren't fans of and would really like to see things separated out properly. Thankfully, they at least allow you to sort the games (all of them) alphabetically, and they have a functioning search bar.

Slots and Other Casino Games

If you've read any of our other reviews, you know that we normally assess the slots and casino games separately. For the Lucky Admiral, we stuck them together on purpose to point out an issue we had with how their games were organized. For some reason, they had the slot and casino games under the same tab in the same list. While this is just a mild annoyance at worst, it would still be nice to see these separated into two different lists.

With over 200+ different slot and casino game options, it's hard not to be pleased with the selection offered at Lucky Admirals. The quality of the games and the graphics were both high, and somehow the graphics looked a little crisper than they do for the same games at some other sites. This is definitely a plus.

Regarding organization, the games are sorted alphabetically and able to be searched. They have a bunch of tabs for you to click through to see the games, but only one that has all of them listed. One thing we weren't fans of was that you couldn't separate the games in any way other than the most popular, the newest, and instant play. We would have liked the ability to sort by type or at least something other than just those options.

As we already mentioned, the organization of things was a bit annoying with the casino games and the slot games all mixed together in one tab. Frankly, this was really annoying especially if you're a casino game player and don't like sifting through hundreds of slots games to see what offerings they have for you. It's definitely not any sort of deal breaker especially with the quality of the games, but just something we want to point out.

TThe games do require you to create an account to try out which isn't a negative but may become one as more and more sites start to offer this functionality. We've included the list of all the games available at the Lucky Admiral online casino. While this is not done on the casino website, we have bolded all of the casino game titles so you can see what they do have to offer.

Update*** If you're looking for the casino games, there is actually a link to separate them individually, but it's tucked down in the footer of the site. To find it, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Online Casino under Games. While this is not ideal, it's at least nice to see that it's there.

Banking Options

This is actually the first time we've heard of a casino branding themselves as a PayPal casino. The Lucky Admiral only had a few deposit options, and the limits were rather low in relation to the rest of the industry except with PayPal that had no limit. They had the ability to deposit to your account via your phone bill which was pretty interesting, to say the least. The maximum deposit via that method, though, was £30.

It's important to note that PayPal is the only withdrawal method available for this site. Thankfully, PayPal is easy to set up.

For Sports BetsPhone Bill
  • Deposits - £10, £20, or £30 are the only options.
  • Deposit Time Frames - Instant
  • Withdrawals - Not available with this method
For Sports BetsPayPal
  • Deposits - No limits!
  • Deposit Time Frames - Instant
  • Withdrawals - Yes
For Sports BetsPaysafecard
  • Deposits - Maximum of £250
  • Deposit Time Frames - Instant
  • Withdrawals - Not available with this method

Bonus Promotions

Promotions are definitely the biggest highlight of the online casino as they had several different programs set up for you to take advantage of. It was nice to see a little creativity by the promotions department as opposed to some of the other sites that have a deposit bonus and that's about it.

Below we've outlined all of the promotions currently available at the Lucky Admiral.

Welcome Offer

There are two separate welcome offers available including one that you don't have to make any sort of deposit. The no deposit welcome bonus is 10 free spins on the Fish and Chips slot game. No strings attached. If you lose all the spins, no biggie. If you win, free cash!

The second offer is a deposit match bonus offer of 100% up to £200 plus 20 bonus spins on the Starburst slots game. One drawback we saw was that the play through requirements was a little high at 65x when a lot of the industry is around the 40x mark. Not terrible, but definitely something to be aware of.

VIP Scheme

The VIP Scheme is the Admiral's VIP program. You get rewarded weekly cashback (rakeback), free spins, and a birthday bonus. Levels are achieved through earning "kudos" which are basically frequent player points. What's interesting is to attain the levels it goes off of how much you have deposited and then maintaining those levels goes off of how much you wager. Here are the perks as well as the deposit amounts needed for each level.

Level Newbie Expert Pro VIP Legend
Weekly Cashback No 1% 3% 5% 10%
Free Spins 0 5 10 25 50
Birthday Bonus Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Requirements Up to 100 101-1,000 1,001-2,500 2,501-5,000 5,000+

Here are the wager requirements listed to hold each status. There looks to be a typo for the expert level so I would probably confirm that with support if you're a regular player.

In order to maintain their VIP status, players need to meet the minimum monthly wagering requirement for their level:

  • Legend

    £20,000+ wagered per month

  • VIP

    £5,000+wagered per month

  • Pro

    £1,000+wagered per month

  • Expert

    £100+wagered per month

Midnight Madness

The first 20 players to deposit after midnight on Mondays get 20 free spins.

Happy Hours

Just like at a bar, The Lucky Admiral has its own happy hours. From 3 pm - 7 pm every Wednesday, you'll be awarded 10 free spins just for playing.

Mysterey Thursdays

If you have money in your account at Lucky Admiral, you'll receive a mystery surprise every Thursday. We're not quite sure what this entails but free is free.

Super Saturday

For those players that play and meet the requirements on Saturdays, you will earn an additional 20 free spins on your favorite slots.

Pizza Club

While the value of this promo isn't the biggest, it is certainly the coolest one we have ever seen. We assumed upon reading the title that it would be a pizza themed slot game that you would win free spins or something off of. We were wrong. You have the ability to win a free pizza from the site every month. Not a virtual pizza, but an actual pizza that you can eat. Our inner fat kid can't get enough of this promotion.

Customer Service

Customer service options were pretty good with email, live chat, and WhatsApp messaging service. We couldn't tell if the WhatsApp was just messages or actual phone support, so we'll assume it's just messaging for the sake of not over complimenting the site. One drawback that we saw was that they didn't have 24/7 customer service which would be fine in probably every other industry in the world, but it has become fairly standard to get 24/7 service. They're also closed on the weekends which is really surprising as that is usually the busiest time for online casinos.

Conclusion

If you're a slot player mainly, you're probably going to be a pretty big fan of Lucky Admiral. They're trustworthy thanks to their UK Gambling Commission licensing, have some nice bonus promotions, and have a great selection when it comes to slots. If you're a table games player, it's not quite as inviting as the options are a bit limited. A few other areas we'd like to see some improvements are the banking options (though if you use PayPal, this isn't an issue) and the organization of the games on the interface.

Overall, the site is good, but not incredible. We think a lot of players, especially slot players, will feel very at home here aboard the Lucky Admiral online casino.
