Editor’s note

This review is based on the operator’s current offer. Data and analysis below are accurate at the time of publishing, but may be subject to change.

Expert verdict

LuckyBird.io is a good sweepstake casino that’s worth checking out, especially for anyone interested in cryptocurrency betting.

It impresses with its bonus offering, constantly drip-feeding you currency with its Faucet system as well as its 11 other promos. It also has three great software providers powering the games alongside bespoke software.

It does lack in some other areas. Some issues, like redemptions coming with charges depending on the cryptocurrency used, are unavoidable at any crypto casino. Others, like the mid-sized games library or lack of Responsible Gambling (RG) features, could and should be fixed.

Overall, I’d recommend LuckyBird.io and consider it a sweeps casino worth a visit.

State differences

LuckyBird.io is available in 45 states and has the same offering regardless of which one of the 45 states you reside in.

LuckyBird.io is not available in: Idaho, Kentucky, Michigan, Nevada, and Washington.

How does LuckyBird.io casino work?

LuckyBird.io is a sweeps casino that uses two virtual currencies: Gold Coins (GC) and Sweeps Coins (SC). Both currencies can be gained through bonuses, payment packages, or won through gameplay. They can both be used as entry fees for the casino’s games.

GC has no value outside LuckyBird.io and can only be used as an entry fee for the various games. SC that has been won through gameplay can be redeemed for cryptocurrency. LuckyBird.io will notify you once you’ve gained 20 eligible SC, which is the minimum required for redemptions.

12 ongoing LuckyBird.io casino promos

Newcomers to the LuckyBird.io sweepstakes casino are greeted with a welcome bonus that’s split over seven days. By logging in consecutively for seven days, players can claim up to 5,000 GC, 0.6 SC, and three Treasure Chests. These are split up as follows:

  • Day 1 — 1,000 GC and 0.1 SC (GC credited automatically)
  • Day 2 — 0.1 SC
  • Day 3 — 0.05 SC
  • Day 4 — 1 Treasure Chest
  • Day 5 — 0.15 SC
  • Day 6 — 2,000 GC
  • Day 7 — 2,000 GC, 0.2 SC, and 2 Treasure Chests

Players are also automatically entered into the VIP program, where they climb tiers based on how much they’ve wagered. There are 15 tiers, with players unlocking hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly bonuses, as well as cashback, rakeback, and level-up bonuses the more tiers they climb.

Rakeback in particular gets much better with each tier, with a percentage of your wager returned to you. The higher up the VIP program you are, the higher the percentage returned. Players start at 5%, and can eventually move up to 21%.

Newcomers are also given a task list of five tasks to accomplish, with each task awarding even more SC. Users will need to verify their email to claim any of the tasks. These are split up as follows:

  • Verify your email address — 0.3 SC
  • Send messages in the chat room — 0.02 SC
  • Set up two-factor authentication (TFA) — 0.02 SC
  • Follow LuckyBird.io on Twitter — 0.02 SC
  • Join LuckyBird.io’s Telegram channel — 0.02 SC

For returning players, there are also social media competitions posted regularly on LuckyBird.io’s Twitter and Telegram pages, as well as free GC and SC handed out in the chat box at regular intervals.

LuckyBird.io also has a unique refer-a-friend program, where you will forever get a commission of your referral’s SC wagered depending on your affiliate level. The terms are unclear concerning affiliate levels, but the basic idea is that you will get a commission based on these two formulas:

  • LuckyBird.io original games — SC wagered * 1% * commission rate
  • Third-party games — SC wagered * 2% * commission rate

Finally, there is the Faucet system. If a player ever ends up with zero GC or SC, the player can go to the Faucet Tap to have a small, random amount of GC or SC handed out to them. This feature is only available to players with zero currency, but it can be used an unlimited number of times.

Bonus rating

98/100 An overwhelming number of good promos
  • Unique Faucet feature
  • Massive VIP program
  • Loads of ongoing promos
  • Terms are hard to find

This is, without a doubt, the biggest offering of sweeps bonuses I have ever seen. Even WOW Vegas with its eight ongoing promos doesn’t come close to what LuckyBird.io provides.

The huge influx of bonuses means you’re practically guaranteed to never have zero currency for wagers. Even if you do somehow fall to zero, the Faucet system will just reimburse you with some more currency.

The only reason the site is not getting a perfect score for its LuckyBird.io casino bonuses is the lack of terms. Some bonuses, like the VIP tiers, are easy to find and understand but others, like the affiliate levels or the cashback bonus, have no terms written down anywhere.

Still, these are small gripes when you’re constantly getting drip-fed free currency. Overall, these are all excellent LuckyBird.io casino promos.

LuckyBird.io games — 200+ casino games

LuckyBird.io’s games library offers 200+ casino games. These include 199 slots, eight jackpots, and 17 table games.

There are no live casino games at LuckyBird.io. There are also no demos available, with all games requiring GC or SC to be played. There are 15 exclusive slots that are filtered into a separate section.

Games rating

92/100 Loads of LuckyBird.io exclusives
  • 32 exclusive casino games
  • Several niche games available
  • Mid-sized games library
  • No demos or live games

I’m very happy with the variety of games at LuckyBird.io sweeps casino. It’s not just about having loads of slots — a variety of games is vital, and LuckyBird.io has that in abundance.

There are tons of rare finds and unique table games that you won’t find in most places. Even Global Poker, which specializes in table games, lacks games like limbo and coin flip.

The mid-sized library is still a problem, but it’s offset by the variety of games and LuckyBird.io adding new games on a regular basis.

Four software providers at LuckyBird.io

There are four software providers at LuckyBird.io sweepstakes casino. These comprise LuckyBird.io’s bespoke software, as well as three reputable providers: Belatra, BGaming, and Booming Games. The majority of games are provided by BGaming.

Software rating

84/100 Quality over quantity when it comes to software
  • Reputable software providers
  • Bespoke software
  • Few software providers
  • No live software

I don’t want to complain too much about LuckyBird.io only having four software providers. It’s not common for sweeps casinos to have a lot of software, such as High 5 Casino that gets by with just three.

Still, the best sweeps casinos have been able to hit higher numbers, with the previously mentioned WOW Vegas pulling eight providers, double LuckyBird.io’s number. It’s not just about the quantity — more providers means more games, more features, more variety, and popular games like Starburst on offer.

The upside to this is that LuckyBird.io has invested in three of the more well-known providers, and also has excellent bespoke software that runs smoothly. It’s a good offering, with a little room for improvement.

Payments rating

73/100 Excellent for crypto and nothing else
  • Nine cryptocurrencies available
  • Fast redemptions
  • Only crypto options available
  • Redemption fees

The best way to judge LuckyBird.io is to compare it to another cryptocurrency-only sweeps casino, Stake.us.

Both have the pro of fast redemptions and the con of transaction fees on those redemptions depending on the cryptocurrency used. Both also offer no alternatives other than cryptocurrency.

So, which one do you pick? In my eyes, LuckyBird.io eeks out a victory for one reason — the eligible SC. LuckyBird.io considers all SC won through gameplay as eligible, while Stake.us forces you to play through your SC three times for it to be eligible.

Stake.us does also offer EOS and Binance Coin though, so anyone who favors those will need to head over there.

LuckyBird.io casino safety features

LuckyBird.io uses both 256-bit SSL encryption with RSA technology, as well as TFA to keep your data safe. While you can play without an email address, you won’t be able to make any purchases or redemptions before linking one to ensure security.

LuckyBird.io offers self-exclusion and cooling-off periods by emailing their customer support, but no other RG tools are available.

It is worth noting that LuckyBird.io has a large number of unfavorable reviews from players, holding a 2.6 on Trustpilot with 63% of reviewers rating it one star, as well as a Trustscore of 57/100 from ScamAdvisor.

Safety rating

80/100 Safe for payment information but not much else
  • TFA available
  • Available in 45 states
  • Lacks RG tools
  • Unfavourable reviews from players

If it’s your personal information you’re worried about, then I wouldn’t have an issue here. Between the SSL encryption and the TFA that information is safe and sound. It’s the RG section I’d be worried about.

First off, it’s always disheartening to see a casino without a proper RG section, with LuckyBird.io hiding it in a tab in their FAQ. They’re also missing basic limiters like gameplay or purchase limits. I know not everyone can or needs to reach the standard of Golden Hearts Games for RG safety, but the attempt here is half-hearted at best.

There is also a concerning number of negative player reviews. To compare, WOW Vegas and Golden Hearts Games have a 4.1 and 4.3 on Trustpilot respectively, so 2.6 for LuckyBird.io is concerning. Most complain about inefficient support and transaction issues, so keep this in mind when engaging with these systems.

Customer support at LuckyBird.io

LuckyBird.io has 24/7 customer support through its live chat and email options. There is also an FAQ and Help Center, though it is very small. Most elements are instead explained through a tooltip that brings up a small popup, or through a separate dedicated page.

Support rating

77/100 Slow but helpful responses
  • Helpful answers
  • 24/7 live chat
  • Long waiting periods
  • FAQ lacks critical information

The support at LuckyBird.io does leave something to be desired. From my experience, it seems like the support team consists of one man who’s just trying his best. It’s very good mind you, but clearly not enough to support a large sweepstakes casino.

Answers were slow to come in with long waiting times. While they were helpful most of the time, some needed further clarification which meant even more waiting.

This problem could be mitigated through a solid FAQ, but the one on display at LuckyBird.io is quite messy. Rather than have one extensive FAQ, LuckyBird.io has instead opted for a small FAQ followed by tooltips on elements to explain them.

This means if, for example, you want rakeback terms explained, you’ll need to find the specific rakeback menu for a tooltip on how it works mechanically followed by the VIP page to see how rakeback applies to that program.

This leads to a lot of confusion, and there are some elements, like the affiliate levels, that are either unexplained or on some obscure tooltip I couldn’t find. Either way, this problem needs to be solved ASAP.

LuckyBird.io’s casino platform

LuckyBird.io is available on desktop and mobile browser, though there is no dedicated mobile app. The full suite of games is available on both mobile and desktop.

LuckyBird.io homepage screenshots on two mobile devices

Loading was fast on most games with few glitches, though some LuckyBird.io originals would slow down a little. There are filters on the left menu but no search bar to find specific games. You can however favorite any game and find it quickly in the favorites bar.

LuckyBird.io sweeps casino uses a dark blue-on-white color scheme that’s easy to understand, with large buttons and a chat on the right-hand side.

Usability rating

73/100 Room for lots of improvements
  • Fast loading times
  • Full suite of games on mobile
  • No search bar
  • Messy filters

There’s definitely room for improvement with LuckyBird.io’s platform. For starters, it’s silly for any sweeps casino to not have a search bar to filter through games, no matter how small the games library is.

I also have problems with the filters on desktop. Rather than being labeled, the filters are just icons on the left-hand side. At a glance, there’s not much difference between the icon for slots and the icon for original slots.

The good news is the fast loading times, and while some games did give me issues they were few and far between. You shouldn’t have any issues playing games at LuckyBird.io
