Being a hack in a hurry, I tried the Java Web Deluxe Suite. The graphics and sounds are pretty basic, but they do the job, and the gameplay is pretty fast for a Java casino. Waiting for individual games to load is a pain, but that’s standard for ‘no-download’ casinos.

The game selection is, again, basic – just three progressive slots, a few video pokers and the standard casino games including Craps and European Roulette. There are two multipayline five reel slots, and a 3 reel slot, Triple Wild Rose. I played Blackjack, doubling Jacks or Better Video Poker and the Triple Wild Rose slot, and although I’ve played better looking games, I managed to stay ahead and while away some time pleasantly enough. Bearing in mind the limitations of Java, does a pretty good job.

But next time I visit, I’ll definitely take the downloadable version, a new addition to the site. The casino is available in Spanish, German, English and Italian.

The 24/7 support is OK, but toll free lines are for US and Canada only. However, you can get a call-back by going to clicking on the live chat support link. The live chat facility was reasonably fast, and the operators were courteous and helpful.

Starluckcasino claims payout percentages in excess of 97%, but there’s no mention of an independent auditor for the payouts, or what rules the games conform to. However, the RNG has been evaluated by BMM International and the casino has been around since 1997, so that kind of longevity suggests they must be doing something right. Starluckcasino is a member of the Interactive Gaming Council, and is licensed in Kahnawake. So there are good signs that this is a trustworthy casino, but as always – do your homework before you part with large amounts of cash.

The player limits are designed to appeal to high –rollers, with several levels, from New Players, with a weekly limit of $1500, to VIP Platinum members, who have an upper weekly limit of $30000.

There’s a signup bonus of up to $100 – and the wagering requirements are very reasonable. For a bonus of 100% (up to $100) you must wager 8 Inscrivez-Vous times the deposit + bonus, (12 times for players from Denmark and Israel) excluding craps, roulette, and baccarat. There are plenty of other cashback and bonus offers, but check the site – some of them expire on July 31 2003.

Overall, starluckcasino is worth a visit if you’re after high limits, or if you’re a Mac or WebTV user. And the downloadable version could be worth a look, if you want a break from the the usual Microgaming/CryptoLogic/Boss Media/Playtech casinos.
