Having played at Sticky Wilds Casino, I can say that there definitely are both pros and cons you need to know about. Is it truly as reliable as it seems? Are bonus offers worth taking? And what has happened with the live chat and mobile version? Find all the answers in my full guide.
I`ve decided to check the profitability of all casinos spending no more than 40 AUD ($30) at each, trying to get most of them and making screenshots and video for you on the way. First of all, I`ll give you a short overview of my experience of playing at this casino, and then we`ll talk more about all the aspects in detail.
So, I`ve registered at the casino, which didn't take much time, and made the first deposit using my credit card (Mastercard). Money was added to my account immediately, and I proceeded to the choice of games. Today, I was in a mood for pokies, and my choice was Midas Golden Touch by Thunderkick. It is a high volatility game with 96.1 RTP. Not too high, but I like it for the super graphics and unique Greek atmosphere.
My first thing was to make use of the welcome bonus. My today's best offer was actually not a bonus, but cashback. The casino promises to give $25 (34 AUD) back if I do not double my initial deposit. I had no reason to trust them, so I made my own test. After a while, I`ve intentionally lost my money (in order to check whether they won't cheat with cashback) and wrote to support to ask when I can receive a cashback to my account. To make a long story short, I`ll just say that I got it in a day, and it was just as promised. I then applied for a withdrawal and got $25 back, almost in a full amount.
Let's now discuss all the characteristics of this casino in detail.
For each casino review, I have chosen 6 important criteria worth mentioning, and I`ll talk about each from top to bottom. They are the following:
I always recommend Australian players to take a closer look at the licenses of the casino they have chosen. Even though gambling is illegal in Australia and AU citizens are not protected by the local law, they still need to choose the casinos with international licenses like the ones issued by MGA or Curaçao Government.
The legal status of the Sticky Wilds Casino is undoubted since this service possesses a valid Curaçao eGaming License. What does it mean to Australian players? It means that you get protected from frauds and shady games and that your personal data will be non-disclosed.
Sticky Wilds Casino offers a number of available payment options including Visa/Mastercard, Skrill, Neteller, SIRU mobile, Neosurf and others. See the full list I was provided below:
As I already told you, my choice was a credit card, and I have successfully (and quickly) made my first deposit.
As for withdrawals, you automatically get your money withdrawn using the same method. In case you want to change something or in case your chosen method does not support cashouts, you can make appropriate changes in the Cashier section. For withdrawal, the possible options are only Visa/Mastercard, Bank transfer, Paysafecard and AstroPay.
My cashout is still in process (even though 5 days passed!), so I`ll tell you if I ever get the money back.
On a Sticky Wilds website, you can find a number of Promotions available right now. The fruitiest option for new players is, in my opinion, the $25 Risk-Free Deposit. The main idea is that you make a deposit of $30 minimum, then try to double it. In case you are not successful, you can get $25 back as a cashback. Here are the rules:
I definitely wanted to check whether it was truly as claimed, so I`ve been playing until I lost all my deposit, and then began to wait for the cashback. And – yes – in a day they've sent me $25! It really works, and there are no hidden pitfalls. See the message I got to my mail:
There is a good quantity of games in this casino, I must admit. There are 2901 games available at the moment, including 40 live casino games. Most of them have free demos, so you can try and feel the game before you play for real money.
The variety of games has almost satisfied my choice: there were nice pokies (including jackpot slots), table games and live dealer games from popular providers. Though you probably know that I'm a fan of live games, so I was a little disappointed because the assortment of live roulette games was close to zero.
By the way, talking about providers: you definitely shouldn't forget that NetEnt does not work in Australia. However, you can still find Netent games in the list simply because the Sticky Wild casino is an international one and is not only intended for Australian players. In case you happen to choose a Netent game, you will be informed that it is not available in your region.
I frequently use a mobile phone for gambling; that is why it is very important that the casino website is mobile-compatible. However, with Sticky Wilds casino, it's far from perfect. I tried playing from PC and noticed that the desktop version offers more possibilities to players than a mobile one. For example: in a desktop version, you choose games from the preferred provider, but the mobile interface does not allow you to do that. This filter is simply absent!
Though, it's only fair to admit that when you are already playing the game, you can hardly notice any inconvenience whatever gadget you are using.
Support was a “sticking point” for me in this Sticky Wilds casino, unfortunately. According to the website, they provide different means of communication with players: 24/7 live chat and e-mail. However, when I decided to ask a question, I noticed that the live chat simply does not exist! See here:
Then, I wrote them a letter to an e-mail asking a question about a cashback and mentioning that there is no live chat on their website. As a result, I got a timely answer about a cashback and not a line about the live chat issue. Draw your conclusions!
One more thing that I`d like to mention about the Sticky Wilds casino is that they have a very well-though website interface and several useful options that help to manage a player`s bankroll and prevent gambling addiction.
Take a look here:
You see, you can set your own limits on the deposit amount, the length of the session, loss limit, and even more – you can freeze your account for a certain time if you don`t trust yourself. I respect Sticky Wilds for this opportunity.
To sum up, I would like to say that Sticky Wilds casino is quite nice, but only if you register and play there for the first time. However, it is far from being perfect; they still have lots to work with: to improve the mobile interface and to add a live chat they are talking about. Anyway, these missing points are not too important if I care for fun and great winnings, so this casino will have a good place in my rating. I hope it won’t be unnoticed by casino managers and I`ll be offered a nice exclusive bonus (I know you are reading this, so come on!).
Tell me about your experience with Sticky Wilds casino and correct me if I am wrong at anything. See you and let the luck be on your side!
