Lively Casino review
Launched in 2017 as part of the ProgressPlay family of casino brands, Lively Casino offers a fantastic selection of games, over 500 all in all, from some of the biggest names in the business, including Microgaming, Net Entertainment, Genesis, NYX Gaming, NextGen, ELK Studios, Thunderkick and the list goes on.
Licensed in Malta under the Malta Gaming Authority, as well as in the UK and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, while somewhat new on the market both new and experienced players will find Lively Casino safe, secure and guaranteed to have something for every taste.
Site Layout and usability
The lively Casino site itself is both simple and broad. Done up in a black, red and white motif, the site is easy to navigate and definitely user-friendly. The top navigation bar, once you head to the casino floor, offers a favourites section, something we haven’t seen a lot of before, that allows you to keep your favourite games there simply by clicking on the heart icon after you’re have registered and logged in.
There is then a new section, featured games, slots (over 300), casino, which includes a fantastic assortment of state-of-the-art table games with copious roulette and craps variants, live dealer tab and jackpots tab.
The live dealer selection boasts 16 table games with a broad assortment of blackjack variants, as well as roulette and baccarat. The jackpots section serves up 16 jackpot slots, including famous progressive jackpot slots such as King Cashalot and Fruit Fiesta, where the jackpots can easily reach the millions. One thing we would have likes to see on this site, which we have seen elsewhere is a live jackpot counter without having to load the game, a handy feature if you’re in the mood for high risk, high reward progressive slots and feeling lucky.
The favourites section, on the other hand off set this problem by allowing you to save your favourites, the slots with the highest jackpots in our book, and go straight there the next time you decide to play or switch slot machines.
Promotions are solid and pretty standard for the Progressive Play family of brands, meaning that there is a solid welcome bonus that includes free spins, weekly and seasonal promotions as well as live dealer cash back and live dealer tournaments.
The VIP club section is located down at the bottom of the page, and not to be found on the promotions page. It lays out a 5-tire VIP program, from bronze to diamond, with features such as a points system, convert points to cash, birthday presents, VIP support hotline, personal account manager, and personal gifts and anniversary bonuses at the higher levels.
Banking options were also solid and pretty much standard, with Lively Casino taking most major debit and credit cards, the possibility to pay via phone for UK customers, prepaid cards like Paysafe card, as well as ewallet companies like Neteller or Skrill and bank transfers.
With an excellent selection of games including a massive assortment of cutting-edge slots, progressive jackpot slots, table games and live dealer games, Lively Casino is definitely exactly that, lively. Simple and easy to use, with state-of-the-art, industry security protocols Lively is a safe, fun and relaxing place to play for gamblers from all walks of life.
