Littlewoods Casino Review

Sorry, No US Players Accepted @ Littlewoods
Littlewoods Casino:

Littlewoods is one of the United Kingdom's most well established gaming companies, being in the gambling sector for an incredible 80 years. Littlewoods is famous for it's soccer pools, in which is has been a British popular gambling institution since the 1920's. Not only is Littlewoods a well established in the gaming sector, but its operations are also diversified into retail, with the company owning numerous retail stores across British high streets and malls. The fact that Littlewoods casino is a fraction of such a well established and reputable company - I have every reason to expect an excellent and professional experience at the casino. The casino software is powered by Cryptologic, which has recently been upgraded and is licensed in the Island of Man (UK), while the casino's central office is in Liverpool England.

The casino can be downloaded from the Littlewoods Casino website, and from my experience the whole download process only requires about five minutes of your time. Thereafter the registration is simplistic and no ID has to be provided, so it also a quick process. The first thing that grabbed my attention once getting into the casino's cashier is that there is not a wide range of deposit options, with the choice being either debit/credit card or NETeller. This certainly must restrict the access of the casino to some players who prefer not to deposit via credit card and do not have a NETeller account. Lucky, I do have a NETeller account; so I proceeded to the check out and made what I thought was a $100 deposit. However, on confirming the my request I discovered that I had in fact made a £100 deposit at an exchange rate of 0.54, meaning I had made a deposit of $182. As it turned out pound sterling is the only currency that the casino operates in - so when you make first deposit be aware (unlike I was) that your are requesting pounds; which are much more expensive then US dollars. You should also be aware that the casino is in British pounds when you are wagering, as it easy to forget that you are betting a lot more then actually think if your brain is still thinking dollars.

Depositing £100, I received an additional £25 bonus complements of the first deposit promotion. First time players and depositors of or over £25 receive a bonus of $25, which carries a wagering requirement of 20 times the bonus and the deposit. The nice thing about this deposit is that it's not 'sticky', meaning that you can drop the bonus and make a withdrawal before meeting the requirements, but the withdrawal can be no greater then your deposit in the absence of meeting the wagering. These are attractive terms of the bonus and as a result make the promotion very attractive compared to bonuses at other online casinos, which may have bigger number but carry restrictive requirements. While having few options to make a deposit, Littlewoods casino's cashier is still one of the best I have ever seen, it's most notable features is that it allows the player to follow the split between your real money and bonus money, and the wagering requirement percentage you have achieved on your bonus. This level of transparency on player's accounts cannot be found on any other software to my knowledge, and it certainly is a useful attribute.

What instantly stole my attention once in the games lobby was that Littlewoods Casino hosts a number of online slots with a Marvel theme, e.g. X-Men and The Incredible Hulk. This is the first occasion that I have been in a casino where their games are sponsored by such well recognized global brand such as Marvel, and this really is another sign that the online casino business is becoming increasingly professional. So with little doubt where to start my tour of the casino I began a nine liner, five reel slot simply called X-Men. While the image and graphics of the slot machine are something special the concept of the game is not that dissimilar from what your find on most other casinos. Like many other slots at the casino there is an autoplay option on this slot, which is simple to use and a nice feature. Anyway I played a number of spins on this game and didn't manage to get any symbols runs to make a win, thus by the end of my session I had almost already lost the £25 bonus. There after I played on a game called Mr. Rich which is a similar kind of slots as X-men, here I managed to receive a couple of smaller wins, but nothing to bring in a good profit.

The next game that I discovered in Littlewoods Casino is called 'The Incredible Hulk' fruit machine; which I believe represents a giant leap with regards to online casino games. This is a 'fruit machine' in the European sense, if you have ever ventured across the pond and visited a English pub you surely would have encounter such a fruit machine. Unlike the American counterpart, the European fruit machine not only pays on the reel but on the board. That is once you have won on the reel you then qualify to play on the board of the game, where you gamble on hi/low (on a number often ranging from 1-12) to move around the board accumulating money and making your way towards the jackpot. This style of slots can be highly complex and fascinating, giving the player several routes to winning the jackpot and adding new dimensions to the gamble. This is the first time that I have ever found such a game in an online casino and this is why it represents such an innovation for an online casino. If you have never had the opportunity to play one of these machines in Europe; it really is worth giving the game a try in Littlewoods Casino. I was more then content playing this game for an extensive session and managed to get onto the board on many occasions. If you receive three toxic symbols anywhere on the reels then you get onto the high/low gamble, where you can exchange to go on the board and hopefully onto the super feature board, where big money is available. At the end of the session I was a little out of pocket but had made some nice wins in the process and I have ever intention of playing is game again soon.

After finishing a tour of some of the slots machines, I decided to take a look around the table games, starting with Let it Ride - which turned out to be an unprofitable experience. After that, I turned to the Blackjack table, where I managed to gain numerous wins making a nice profit at the end to return my balance back above the £100 mark. I got the impression that the table was giving me a fair chance of winning and came away satisfied. Other games table that are on offer are; Baccarat, Casino Stud Poker, Casino War, Paw Gow Poker, Red Dog, Craps and Roulette and Three Card Poker. I played on a handful of these games, and was impressed with the graphics and general playability. All table games which I sampled seemed to have a minimum wager of £1 and maximum of around £300. There is also a wide range of fantastic looking video poker machines, with some offering a progressive jackpot. Littlewoods Casino also hosts a couple of Scratch cards - which are graphically spectacular. I player the one called 'Money Farm'; in which you must reveal three of the same type of animal from behind hutch doors to win the wager multiplier which they represent. I was unable make any noticeable wins on the game, but it was a fun having a go.

By the end of my tour of the casino my balance was £85 dollars, £15 dollar below what I had deposited. Thus I opted to keep the balance in the casino for another session as I have every intention of returning in the future. However, in order to make your first withdrawal from the casino - it is necessary to enter a PIN number, which is mailed to the address which you submitted in the registration process. I emailed support with few basic questions to test the standard of their customer support and I was totally impressed with the speed of their reply and the level of their service.

Having played so many online casinos it not often that I am highly impressed playing a new one, however Littlewoods Casino really stands out and something refreshing innovative in so many aspects. Littlewoods Casino strikes me as one of the best casinos which I have played for some time, and I have no reservations in recommending it to my readers.
