The Lucky Nugget is an online casino with a theme that pays tribute to the days when gold rushes were taking place in Australia and around the world. These days it's unlikely you'll find a big gold nugget in Bathurst, Bendigo or Kalgoorlie but you can still strike it lucky at the Lucky Nugget.
The casino uses software from Microgaming, is licensed and regulated by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority and is owned by the Belle Rock Gaming Group who also run Jackpot City and The Gaming Club.
New Player Bonus
When you join the casino you can get a 100% bonus up to $1,000 free. This is one of the biggest opening offers and gives you a total of $2,000 to play with and try out lots of the pokies.
The Lucky Nugget is powered by Microgaming - one of the worlds leading casino software providers who have been in the business since 1994. The instant play version is PC and Mac compatible while the free download only works on Windows PC's.
When it comes to pokies, The Lucky Nugget has over 250 different titles to choose from with a wide range of both themes and game styles. The game range is always growing with new pokies being released every month.
The payout percentages of all of the games including the pokies are independently audited and published online. Over the last decade these reports have shown an average for the pokies of over 95% which is much higher than you will ever get at your local gaming venue.
You can also try your luck on a big selection of casino games from card games like blackjack, baccarat and Caribbean Stud to table games like sic bo and roulette. The casino also has a particularly good range of cardies with RTP's on these games going as high as 99.92% (All Aces).
