Design and Usability
The general theme of the Lucky 247 Casino appears to be based around lucky horseshoes, at least that’s what the title font would lead the user to believe. In actual terms the website runs a simple red, black and white theme which, while striking and easy to read, does appear somewhat dated and utterly standard. It should be noted that this simplistic layout is not an inherently bad thing, as it allows the type of instant understanding and quick navigation that some of the larger sites, with their focus on style over function, can miss out on.
Navigation of the site is achieved through the use of large tabs which, despite relying on Flash, load almost instantly, which gives the impression that those who designed the site made a conscious decision to create a system of speed and accessibility.
The only thing that really lets the site down, in terms of design, is the lack of a favorite function for its games, though this problem is somewhat alleviated through the use of a quick-search bar, if you can remember the names of your favorite games that is.
Lucky 247 currently offers no live casino games or dealers.
Lucky 247 does not have a formal app, but rather offers a mobile version of the site which is accessible via a large and impossible to miss link from the main page. From here you fill out a simple form and input your cell-phone number and a link will be sent to your phone. What Lucky 247 has going here is unusual in that it also offers a signup deal exclusive to the mobile version, giving a bonus 100% deposit up to the AU$250 on the first deposit in addition to 50 free spins on the Avalon roulette table on the users first deposit.
The app offered by Lucky 247 works on the following main systems: Apple iOS version 7.0.X and above, Android 3.X and above, Windows Phone version 7 and above, and Blackberry OS10 and above, though it should also work on any mobile device that is up to date and capable of running HTML 5.

Our Experience and General Reviews
My personal experience with Lucky 247 has been positive, the site is one of the most user friendly on the internet, and is among the fastest to load, proving wrong my initial concerns. What really stood out to me is the sheer amount of information on offer, with most pages come a vast amount of text which explains anything the user might need to know, this only being let down by the lack of problem gaming help. All of my favorite Microgaming slot games are on offer and are fast to load, cutting out a lot of the pain that you can experience trying to quickly jump between games.
General reviews of the website are conflicted, with some giving it high rating and praising its selection and layout, while others are especially critical of its staff and customer support. Reviews for Lucky 247 sit between a low 4.5/10 and a high 9.2/10.
COMPARISON TO OTHER CASINOS
The best comparisons for Lucky 247 come from the promotions on offer, which are some of the best in business, though it is no slouch in terms of selection of games either. The amount and selection of these games stand among the upper echelons while the wagering requirement matches also sit higher than many other online gaming sites.
In terms of design, this site can be seen as somewhat standard, but it also does not falter here in any way. In terms of access and variety of help services Lucky 247 also does well, though it’s not among the best.
General consensus on Lucky 247 is that it has a great selection but is often let down by its customer support. Many users report never getting and responses back from email support at all, while others claim that the support staff went out of the way to avoid being helpful (though it should be noted that these reports should always be taken with a grain of salt). People also took issue with the fact that support was not offered in languages other than English.
Popular casino ranking site askgamblers.com gave it a low 4.87 out of ten while casino.org gave it a high 9/10 and casinolistings.com has it a still high 8/10.
Lucky 247 hasn’t the largest Twitter following, with only 771 followers though its Facebook account is much more popular with over 6,500 followers (likely due to its clever use of adding this into its promotions). Both of these accounts are kept up to date, with information related to upcoming and current bonuses always being shared with fans. A great effort here, above what many of the largest sites achieve.

Do you like slots, bonuses, a wide selection of other great games and a simple to understand and relatively fast loading time? Then this is definitely a site you should check out. If you are a new user looking to get into the online gambling scene this is also a fantastic jumping off point, with everything being well explained to a level where most sites don’t bother to tread. While there have been problems in the past, especially relating to customer support, more recent reviews from larger sites claim that these problems have been addressed. This is one of the sites where everybody could use more information, so make sure to voice your experience and opinions, ours was positive.
