CasinoLuck have followed their sister mobile casinos footsteps and changed their welcome bonus for the New Year. Is it better? Or have they just applied a fresh coat of paint?
Following the news that NextCasino had changed their first deposit bonus offer, we find CasinoLuck doing exactly the same.
New Year, new offer?
Perhaps. Nothing wrong with changing your welcome bonus for new players. Keeps things interesting, us writing, and you reading. Perhaps now they’ve changed it, you might even be willing to try CasinoLuck for yourself.
But before you jump in, let’s have a look and check this is actually an improvement on their last offer.
100% up to £€$150 + 100 Free Spins Welcome
What do you mean it looks exactly the same as their previous offer?
So you noticed hey?
Yeah, the amounts are the same, but some important details have changed. Namely the slot games you get the free spins on. But first lets break down the first deposit casino bonus shall we?
100% up to £€$150 on your first deposit
We used the three most common currencies, because frankly, if we put in all 26 of the currencies you can get, you’d think we’d had a keyboard stroke.
But needless to say, they have all the dollars you can ask for, from US to Canadian to Australian, plus your standard GBP and Euros.
This is your standard double your money bonus. Do check, if you are playing in Swedish Kronor or Swiss Francs or Mexican Pesos (or whichever) that you make the correct conversion, or ask the live chat team.
The minimum deposit you’ll have to make is €£$10 in cash, or equivalent in your currency.
At least they give you choice right?
100 free spins on a choice of 3 NetEnt slots
As before, once you’ve made you first deposit, you’ll get 100 free spins to spend on a choice of NetEnt casino slot machines.
You can spend your 100 spins whichever way you like, whether that’s 50 in one and 25 on the other two, or any combination you like.
But here’s where the real difference comes along. Whilst before you had a choice of four games with Fisticuffs, Victorious, Magic Portals and/or Twin Spin, now you only get three choices.
That would be on either Jack & the Beanstalk, Gonzo’s Quest or Starburst.

Is it an improvement?
Now depending on how you view it, this is either an excellent change, or a terrible one.
It’s the marmite of changes, mostly because the casino games chosen are so very different.
The good news, is that all the free spins are playable on mobile phones and tablets still, so once you’ve made your first deposit, you can keep your free spins and play them on the go when you need a little burst of entertainment.
Or just hiding out in the bathroom from the family. We won’t judge.
Twin Spin. That, right there, is the reason for our heartbreak.
Other than GUTS casino, who give away 15 free spins on Twin Spin when you register, there are few mobile casinos out there who give a free spin bonus on this brilliant NetEntertainment casino game.
And, as of right now, that’s one less.
It’s just a great high volatility slot, you know? Sure, you could end up with little to nothing on 100 spins. But 100 spins on Twin Spin could win you hundreds at minimum bet. Which in turn you could use to win thousands.
Victorious is ok, Fisticuffs is naff and Magic Portals is good fun. But Twin Spin is one of a kind.
The bright side
So before you had the choice of spending 100 free spins on, really, one risky slot (maybe a few in Magic Portals for the hell of it).
Now you get a choice of three far more well-balanced slots.
Starburst is obviously a big favourite with millions of people everywhere, and that alone will appeal to many.
Gonzo’s Quest is another classic, which gets you higher wins than Starburst, but with those tumbling reels, is definitely value for money as you’ll earn lots of little ‘spins’ as symbols disappear and get replaced from above, at no extra cost to you.
Hundreds of Mobile Games
Choose from Betsoft, IGT, iSoftbet, Microgaming, Net Entertainment, NextGen, OMI Gaming or Play’n GO games.
But Jack & the Beanstalk is the one we’d recommend for players who are looking for a bit of extra cash.
The roaming wilds during the base game is what will get you some nice wins, but in 100 spins, you’ll hopefully hit the free spin bonus feature, which again, gives you a host of extra spins and a big potential payoff.
All for the cost of that small initial 10 in cash deposit.
A different type of welcome bonus
What CasinoLuck casino have done here is lowered the risk of players to win tons (or win nothing, depending on how you look at it), whilst at the same time, giving players a better selection of balanced mobile casino slots.
After all, they are aware that if you actually win something with the free spin games, you are more likely to have happy thoughts about their gambling site, and so make a second deposit.
Hopefully they can then turn you into loyal players and it will be a happy relationship all around.
With the previous choice of games, Twin Spin gave you no guarantee of winning anything. Leaving many disappointed. Especially as the other choices were ok, but hardly in the top ten list of anyone. Plus any winnings come with a 30x wagering on the money, so you want to win enough to keep playing, but not so much that it’s impossible to wager through.
With the new choice of free spins, the chances of getting something decent is increased, as all the video slots they’ve chosen pay better.
Maybe not huge amounts, but with 100 spins, we can see you adding an extra 30 to 100 in cash bonus on top.
Which is no mean feat.
So all in all, though we are sad to see Twin Spin go, we applaud the logic and the choice of games. A great start to 2015.
