LOKI Casino Review
*This is one of the brands we used to feature on the site, however for whatever reason we no longer recommend it. We kept this old review but removed any direct links to the site and advise you to pick another brand from here.
Software: Soft Swiss, NetEnt, Microgaming, Nyx, BetSoft, iSoftBet, Evolution Gaming, Amatic, Endorphina, Pragmatic Play and Belatra
Ambitious but modest and sincere, proud of their work and attentive to their players, Loki is an unusual bird on the international online gaming scene. Having initially chosen Soft Swiss as their partner, the team has continued to recruit other reputable developers as contributors to a generous gaming library stocked with close to 1,000 slots, table games, video pokers, specialties and live dealer games. New members will be able to pick the welcome offer best fitting to their budgets and gaming style, while complimentary points are being used to show the operator’s appreciation of players’ loyalty. All this is being delivered via an attractive and amazingly easy to use website, vouching for a highly enjoyable gaming experience.
Ongoing Promotions – Loyalty Program
The three-tier welcome bonus consists of 100% up to €100 and 100 Free Spins given with the first deposit of €20 or more (code LOKI100), 75% up to €100 with the second deposit (LOKI75), and 50% up to €100 on the third (LOKI50). It’s refreshing to see how well the related terms and conditions have been communicated; there’s no small print and no attempt to pull a fast one on unsuspecting players. Both the bonus and free spin winnings are subject to 50x wagering requirements, which is more or less standard.
High-rollers can alternatively deposit €1,000+ to claim 50% up to €1,000 bonus (code LOKIHR) which will have to be played through 55 times prior to requesting a withdrawal. Most slots will contribute 100%, except from those from NetEnt (80%) and classic slots which provide only 5% contribution, same as all table games and video pokers.
Use code HAPPYWEEKEND to make at least 3 deposits from Friday to Sunday and you’ll get to claim 50% bonus up to €50 plus 60 free spins. Complimentary points (CPs) are awarded for placing real money bets on slots, earning you 1 CP for each €100 wagered. Accumulated points will determine your status, which in turn defines the rate at which your CPs get converted to cash. You’ll need to “spend” 15 points for €1 at the Beginner level, but will enjoy 10:1 exchange rate at the top Diamond level. Obtained cash comes with wagering requirement of x3.
Thanks to unusual colours and effects, Loki’s website has a kind of an ethereal feel, even though it features no specific theme. Simple and logical structure makes navigating remarkably easy – collapsible menu positioned in the top left corner provides links to games, promotions and tournaments, while the one at the bottom makes sure you can access all other relevant areas. This is where you’ll find general and bonus T&C, FAQ list, support section and payment information. Overall, there is an abundance of information which is easy to reach, read and understand. High marks for user-friendliness!
Software and Game Selection
The Casino has been continuously enlarging their list of suppliers and are now able to provide games from Soft Swiss, NetEnt, Microgaming, Nyx, BetSoft, iSoftBet, Evolution Gaming, Amatic, Endorphina, Pragmatic Play and Belatra. There is no software to download, but before being able to launch any of the games in your internet browser, you’ll have to register an account and log in – even when playing for fun.
More than 800 slots should be plenty enough to please any hard-core fan of spinning reels. Finding the game to your taste has been made incredibly easy thanks to Game Collections such as Branded, Fruit, Gems, High and Low Rollers, and titles grouped by special features like Sticky Wilds, Re-spins and Falling Symbols. There is also an option to filter them by the provider. Really, it can hardly be made any more convenient than it is. Loki has made sure the mix includes a decent selection of classics and a good many Microgaming and BetSoft progressives – generous Mega Moolah included.
While one might get a tad disappointed seeing table games section with only 14 Roulette, Blackjack and Poker variants (all Soft Swiss products), Loki’s Live Casino won’t fail to impress. It’s home to more than 60 live tables, with Evolution Gaming guaranteeing to provide as realistic land-based gaming experience as possible. You’ll see professional and friendly live dealers spin the Roulette wheel and deal you in for a round of Blackjack, Texas and Casino Hold’em, Caribbean Stud or Three Card Poker, Baccarat, Baccarat Squeeze or Punto Banco. Play-for-fun button is rarely seen with live games and highly appreciated. Finally, there are close to 80 more gaming options provided under the headline of Others and including Video Pokers, Bingo, arcade games and specialties.
Banking Options, Currencies
Processing time: within a few hours
Withdrawal limits: €4,000 per transaction, €6,000 weekly and €15,000 monthly
Loki’s payment page is one the best ones we’ve seen so far; it displays literary all relevant information in a well-structured manner. List of accepted currencies includes EUR, USD, AUD, CAD, NOK, SEK, RUB and BTC. Funding one’s account is possible by using Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller, Bitcoin, Trustly, Sofort, Qiwi, ComePay, iDeal, Paysafecard or Zimpler, with transaction limits set at €10 minimum and €4,000 maximum. Many of the same methods are also available for withdrawing between €20 and €4,000 per transaction, and not more than €6,000 weekly and €15,000 monthly. If you want to be able to cash out more, make sure to attain VIP status. Thanks to an automatic payment system, withdrawal requests will be processed in a matter of hours.
License, Company Background
Loki Casino has been established in 2016 by Netincom, an operator which manages only one (younger) gaming site called Gunsbet Casino, but has extensive experience in land-based operations across Europe and the CIS. They’ve gotten Loki licensed in Curacao which would necessarily be our top pick, simply because Curacao Internet Gambling Association doesn’t offer much assistance to injured players.
Support and Social Channels
FAQ list provided by the operator is decent enough, though not the most comprehensive one around. However, seeing the wealth of useful content in other sections of the site, this is not a huge issue. If there is a question the website doesn’t answer, the Casino’s competent support team will – either in English, German or Russian. One can write them an email using provided contact form, or alternatively launch Live Chat with the help of an icon positioned in the bottom right corner. If you send them a message via Facebook or Twitter, expect to receive an answer within a few hours.
