We have seen stranger names in our fast moving online casino world but Lapalingo certainly stands out from the crowd. My first thought was Bingo in Lapland. Never mind as they are a good gaming place operated by Rabbit Entertainment Ltd. on the LionLine platform, under a MGA license and one of the rare sites offering the ever so popular Merkur slots such as Eye of Horus, Lucky Unicorn or Gold of Persia. Unique, high quality and entertaining slots with the potential for sky high wins. And all that with the label “Quality made in Germany” as the operator is a German company based in Malta and the platform provider is part of the well-known LoewenPlay Group, one of the oldest and most established suppliers of land based games and slot machines.

Lapalingo Welcome Package

Loyalty Program and VIP club
Currently, we are not aware of a loyalty program to collect comp points or other rewards, nor do we have any information on a VIP club at Lapalingo. Please contact the casino support if you feel that your deposit level requires that special attention.
Games at Lapalingo
Here is where this casino shines most. Merkur and LionLine slots are a rare appearance on casino websites and Lapalingo has the complete catalogue of both. Games like Eye of Horus, Dragons Treasure, Gold of Persia, Dracula, Hot Wheels or Lucky Unicorn are popular classics in the online casino world. These slots are a must for all punters who like high volatility games that can easily produce wins past the 5,000x stake mark. For those, who don’t seek the daily roller coaster ride of high variance games, they added some mainstream providers such as Netent, Bally, Betsoft, Microgaming and iSoftBet as well as some new or upcoming companies like GameArt and Reel Time Gaming to their portfolio to give players more variety. Their LIVE Casino tables are provided by Netent Live and Evolution Gaming.
Payment Methods and Customer Support
At present Lapalingo offers only Euro as currency which might result in extra currency fees when depositing with a credit card or e-wallet. Payment methods are very much sufficient with the usual ones provided such as credit / debit cards, e-wallets, prepaid cards and a whole range of instant banking options such as GiroPay, DotPay, SoforUeberweisung, Trustly and TrustPay. Accepted is also Paypal. Customer Support is somewhat the letdown of this casino. No Live Chat, no Email and no Phone, only an Onsite Messaging system which is not manned 24/7 and weekends. Certainly not the best compared to what we have seen at other sites. We have not had any experience with response times but one should hope that a 24 hour period is sufficient. The website is available in English, Finnish, German, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish languages.
Are Merkur and LionLine your favorite game providers? Then this is a casino you should sign-up with. Apart from that I am not very enthusiastic about Lapalingo. Pending periods over weekends on withdrawals, no Live Chat or phone support, super high wagering requirements which are deeply in EV- territory, all things which put me personally off from creating an account. However, they are a safe and reliable operation with a solid gaming license and if the missing support options or high wagering on bonuses are not an obstacle then they can certainly be recommended.
