Don’t we all wish we could Strike It Lucky? Well now you can – at the first Flash-based casino reviewed on Got2Bet – and it’s a real winner!
Strike It Lucky is a Flash-based casino – which means if you have the Macromedia Flash plug-in for your browser – and most of you do – you can be playing within 60 seconds of signing up, says the website. And it’s not far off, either! If you don’t have the plug-in, you can get it right here – it takes just a few minutes to download and install, and away you go!
Many of you know that I do not recommend Java casinos because they do not operate properly on a number of machines – in a number of documented instances you have to actually disable your sound card (how many of you know how to do that?) in order to play at the casino. Takes all the fun out of it without sound… but with Strike It Lucky you will not have any worries – no hangs, much more beautiful graphics, and realistic sounds that will almost have you wanting to hit your nearest land-based casino!
The Flash casino is by Microgaming – one of the safest, if not the safest, casino software packages you will find on the Net. The games operate off the same servers as the download versions, and you still get every bit of enjoyment – you can even try Microgaming’s famous progressive slots at Strike It Lucky!
Strike It Lucky has 31 games to choose from, uniquecasino.fr including blackjack, cyberstud poker, scratch cards, keno, and all sorts of slots and video poker machines. When you click on one, it takes a minute or two to download the graphics, and away you go! And if you should go back to that game later it will load instantly.
I tried out a good sampling of everything they had, and am pleased to report the game play is smooth and entertaining. But then again I shouldn’t have expected any less. If you have played at a number of Java-based no-download casinos, boy are you in for a surprise!
Banking is handled by Cyber Finance Investments – one of the larger of Microgaming’s processors, and quite safe and efficient. All of the transactions are handled through your web browser with ease.
The blackjack table used here does look a bit generic – but I bet they will address this issue shortly. Another problem is that, if you should leave the connection idle for too long, like to go to the bathroom, grab some food or answer a phone call, the casino will disconnect, and you will have to log in again. Never encounted a situation where I was in the middle of a bet when disconnected, so I can’t say for sure what happens to the bet – but Microgaming’s download versions will save the bet at its current state, so that you can resume where you left off – and the website says that you will be able to continue from the last known position, so I wouldn’t be too concerned about that.
I thoroughly enjoyed playing here, but then I knew I would because Got2Bet features the same Flash casino in its Play for Fun area. But you can test out the latest version at Strike It Lucky as well without having to make a deposit. And not having to spend an hour downloading software made for a much more enjoyable experience!
Even if you’re not Irish, and it’s not March, I’m sure you’ll be able to Strike It Lucky. Just rub your monitor and pretend it’s the Blarney Stone – maybe you’ll even crack the CashSplash progressive jackpot!
