If you’re a Marvel fan or Norse mythology enthusiast who stumbled across this Loki Casino review hoping for some kind of shrine to the brother of Thor, then move along folks, there’ll be nothing but disappointment for you here. But if you’re looking for an exciting online casino experience, then stick around for the show.
Established in 2016, Loki Casino forms part of the Direx N.V. Casinos group, which is licensed and registered in Curaçao. The site’s main differentiator seems to be largely manifested in the selection of Bitcoin games available, but let’s delve deeper into all the components that come together to make up Loki Casino. After all, this may not be a superhero story, but it would still be wise to determine if we’re dealing with friend or foe.
Loki Casino’s site is one of the better ones I’ve seen. It’s very modern, with clean functionality and clear navigation. As an online casino with a huge bank of slot games, they do a brilliant job of displaying each one in neat thumbnails that make scrolling through such a vast selection easy and non intimidating.
The entire site is also very easy on the eye, with a relaxing palette of pastel shades and a distinct lack of crazy flashing images and animated cartoons — hooray! The entire site is responsive on mobile and tablet, designed to run smoothly on any device. Overall I would say that the site might not be flashy enough for some player tastes, but those who prefer more subtle visuals will be tickled.
First impressions are lasting impressions, and Loki Casino has certainly taken this sentiment to heart, offering new players a fairly generous welcome bonus. As a first time depositor you’ll be offered a cash match of 100% up to C$150. And if you’re a slots player then you’ll be thrilled with the first deposit bonus, because it also comes with 100 Free Spins. The welcome wagon continues to stretch out over your second and third deposits also, which offer:
- 75% up to C$150 when making your second deposit
- 50% up to C$150 when making your third deposit
The Free Spins tail off after the first deposit so you really do want to make sure you don’t let those first hundred go to waste. That being said, it won’t be your easiest casino task to date. First off, in order to qualify for the welcome offer you’ll need to make a minimum first deposit of C$30, which is much higher that you usually find. This holds for both the second and third deposits also. The second thing I’m not a big fan of is that the wagering requirements on all three bonuses are set at 40 x. This seems rather steep, especially with so many of the newer casinos working hard to reduce these requirements.
There’s an alternative welcome bonus we should probably discuss, this one designed for high rollers. Loki Casino will offer 50% up to a whopping C$1,500 for those with larger budgets to play with. Sounds great in theory but the downside is that this offer is subject to the even higher wagering requirements of 50 x.
There are other promotions which get passed around to players that have chosen to make Loki Casino their regular home, such as an annual gift on each player’s birthday and a weekend reload bonus of 50% cash match of up to C$150.
It’s definitely worth a mention that, after a little research, I found several forums which listed complaints against the casino for not paying out — even when wagering requirements have been met. This is a common complaint among online casinos, so I can’t confirm whether it holds any weight, but be on your guard.
Loki Casino pushes the entertainment boat out with over 1,500 games on offer across Slots, Jackpots, Table Games, Live Casino, BTC Games, and the very mysterious ‘Others’. Let’s crack into each category and find out where the best times are to be had.
Slots are a big deal at Loki, and a large chunk of the games menu is dedicated to spinning reels. You’ll find games from across the spectrum of developers, including:
This isn’t an exhaustive list and not all the developers are compatible in Canadian territory. But the reality is that there are enough contributors that it shouldn’t have much of an impact on the variety. The majority of the slots are also available in BTC Game mode. So those rolling with crypto won’t be short on options.
The Live Casino suite runs on Evolution Gaming and AuthenticGaming, and a handy tab lets you swivel quickly between the offerings from both providers. Canadian players can engage with the Evolution side and access a fairly large selection of live entertainment. This covers mainly multiple variants of Roulette and Blackjack, but there’s also a couple randoms thrown in like Monopoly Live and Dream Catcher.
After the bustling Live Casino scene, the Table Games section seems somewhat paltry. Players can choose to engage with a limited selection of Sic-Bo, Roulette, Blackjack, and Video Poker.
Loki Casino also offers a Lottery, for which players can buy tickets to be in with a chance of cash and free spins prizes. The price of each lottery ticket depends on the deposit amount. The more you deposit, the cheaper the ticket. Check out the lottery tab on the site to learn more.
Loki Casino’s loyalty program takes on a points system, which they call Complimentary Points (CP). These are ultimately exchanged for cashback.
Collecting points will see you rise through the ranks:
And the higher you climb, the better your points to cashback ratio:
The negative to this whole shebang? You can only collect points when you play slots, so if you’re partial to other entertainment, like table games or live casino, you won’t be able to benefit.
Loki Casino definitely offers an above average service when it comes to deposit and withdrawal methods. Merely by being an online casino that integrates Bitcoin payments into its platform, it already offers more than most. But cryptocurrency aside, the site also supports 8 different currencies, including CAD.
The minimum withdrawal is C$30 and the maximum withdrawal is C$6,000. However, if you choose to play with Bitcoin then you’re free of any limits entirely.
I really wanted to love Loki Casino, and in some ways I did. I thought the game library was strong, the site was exceptionally well-built and their openness to cryptocurrency was refreshing.
But when I dug deeper I was a little bit let down. The welcome bonuses, while generous at first glance, were subject to really high wagering requirements that many players would struggle to meet. The loyalty program was great, but it excluded any players who did not want to play slots. To top it off I read a few too many online reports that blasted the online casino for holding back on legitimate payouts.
So taking everything into consideration, I probably won’t be spending as much time as I had planned at Loki Casino.
