THUNDERBOLT CASINO – by Mellinda de Bruyn
Thunderbolt Casino is a registered online sister casino of Springbok Casino. They cater specifically for South African players who can play in Rand.
The logo and theme of the casino homepage create the impression of an electrifying experience.
The casino makes use of Real Time Gaming (RTG) software and offers more than 200 games to choose from. Games include slots, table games, progressive jackpots, card games, scratch cards, Keno and tournaments.
Members can choose to download the casino software free to their laptops/desktops, play instant mode via the internet or use their mobile phones.
Real money play and fun play are the options available when playing in the casino. Daily, weekly and monthly tournaments can also be played which cost for free or have minimal buy-ins.
For players wishing to register an account, the following welcome bonuses are available:
100% up to R2500,
125% up to R2500 (min R100 deposit)
150% up to R2500 (min R250 deposit)
They offer many other bonuses to existing players on a daily and weekly basis. Their Facebook page offers a special free bonus weekly. These bonuses range between 10x – 60x wagering conditions. A very outstanding feature that they offer is a personalized bonus where a member can negotiate directly with the casino to make up a bonus that suits their own needs.
A “Game of the Month” is announced every month and special bonuses and free spins are linked to it. For every player that has deposited during a month, a free bonus of R250 is available. An R150 thank you bonus is offered to all that invite new players. Wagering is 60x and various maximum cashouts are linked to these bonuses.
The cashback program allows members to claim 25% back after every deposit that is made without any other bonuses. This cashback has a 10x wagering and no maximum cash out amount.
The loyalty program includes complimentary points that can be converted in real money to play with. Depending on your VIP status, various additional bonuses and free bonuses are offered.
Should members have any queries or difficulties, support can be contacted via email, telephone or online chat. They are available every day of the year.
Various banking methods are available for deposits and withdrawals. It should be noted that withdrawals take between 5 – 7 working days after verification of documents have been completed. In order to speed up payouts, it is advisable to submit the relevant verification documents when registering an account.
The only negative aspect about this casino is, that should a player make a withdraw, your VIP status and special benefits are taken away.
My personal view – as it uses the same games as Springbok Casino and they offer the same benefits, it is a very good online casino to join. Apart from the one negative aspect experienced, my overall view of the casino is very good and I would recommend it to any South African player who wishes to register an account with them.
