Irish Lottery Status: Not Recommended

Irish Lottery Casino

Overview

Review last updated – June 2017.

Irish Lottery Casino was established in 2012 and runs on the ProgressPlay platform Irish Lottery Casino is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UKGC. They provide a range of games from Microgaming. Their site comprises the orange, green and white colours associated with the flag of the country that is their namesake. The odd Shamrock also features.  They currently have no complaints logged at any of the major gambling portals.

Trustworthiness

 - 3 / 10

Irish Lottery Casino have a good reputation within the gambling community and we found no outstanding issues at any of the major casino complaint portals.

(-1)We find Irish Lottery Casino's dormancy clause for UK players to be predatory as it does not state that before beginning dormancy proceedings every effort will be made to contact the relevant player. Accounts held by UK players are declared dormant after only 6 months of inactivity. We also find their maintenance fee for dormant accounts held by UK players to be unacceptably high at a rate of 10% of the account balance per month.

Irish Lottery restrict the withdrawal of Progressive Jackpot winnings. As Progressive Jackpots are paid by the network provider from the jackpot contributions that are made as bets are placed, there's no legitimate reason for any operator to withhold payment of this type of win. Operators doing so are attempting to frustrate the player into losing back some or all of their win. As such Irish Lottery have been included on our Not Recommended list.

Only casinos carrying ThePOGG Deposit Guarantee Seal can score higher than 8/10.

Licensing

 - 10 / 10

IrishLottery hold the following gambling licenses :

  • United Kingdom Gambling Commission - The UKGC are widely considered to be the most reputable regulators involved in the online gambling market. They do not manage complaints for players directly, instead requiring their operators to appoint a UKGC accredited Alternative Dispute Resolution service. As such the value of this license for players depends largely on the professionalism of the ADR service utilised. IrishLottery currently use IBAS. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.
  • Malta Gaming Authority - In our experience the MGA is the best regulatory authority in terms of the management of player complaints. Their complaints team is open and cooperative in the discussion of player issues and we've managed to resolve a number of credible player issues working with the MGA. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies. You can find further information regarding this regulator's complaint policies here.

Comp Points

Irish Lottery Casino does provide a comp points program but unfortunately do not provide enough information regarding converting points to cash for us to rate it. They do state that you can earn points at a rate of 1 point for every £16 wagered.

Closing Thoughts

Irish Lottery Casino have what we consider to be a predatory dormancy clause for UK players - declared dormant after 6 months and then subject to a 10% of account balance maintenance fee per month. Their policies on the payment of Progressive Jackpots are unacceptable to this site. In their Bonus Policy section it states that players from some countries will be subject to increased wagering on bonuses (100x rather than 50x) but players must contact Customer Support for details - it would be more helpful if the restricted countries were just clearly stated for players in the Bonus Policy section in the interests of transparency. The three day withdrawal pending status could encourage some players to reverse withdrawals that they would not if the withdrawal processing time was lower. Be aware of this if you are a player that falls into this category. The casino does state that you can contact support via telephone but no number is given on their website - also no support email address is given on the Contact Us or Help pages of the website - you will however find it buried in the Bonus Policy Page - this is not particularly helpful for players.
