White Lotus : Casino Review
White Lotus Casino is a relatively new kid on the block for SA players and caters to South Africans wanting to play in Rands. You'll immediately notice from the very first and initial impressions that White Lotus wants to bring sophistication to the online world of gaming.
It's powered by RealTime Gaming and offers a fair amount of games to players. You can get a wide variety of different types of table games, and enjoy some specialty games while you're at it too.
The site seems to run really well and is very responsive to mobile users. It also offers full service support systems for clients and has some cool promotions in local currency and offers withdrawals and deposits in Rand.
White Lotus offers specific welcome bonuses when you sign up and will match up to R30,000 on deposits. There isn't much else on offer with the promotions, but we felt that the welcome bonus was quite a lucrative one.

No Deposit Bonus
Use Code: R300NEW
New players who sign up to White Lotus will be able to enjoy a R300 bonus that is theirs to spend on anything they'd like. This is a free amount of money given to you, using the no deposit bonus coupon that will allow you to experience some of the games without having to risk any real money.
While the desktop version of the site is really slick and looks professional, the mobile section of the site is just as good. You can use many different mobile devices from smartphones to tablets and you'll experience a very similar interface, giving you the same high quality graphics. The game range on mobile is a little more limiting, but that's to be expected.
The casino also offers a specific mobile-only promotion to encourage the use of mobiles on the site. You'll get 100 free spins on Cash Bandits or Coyote Cash when you deposit with the White Lotus mobile casino lobby.
With the amount of smartphones and tablets out on the market today, it may be a tricky situation to find mobile devices that work well at White Lotus. Thankfully our review team has been able to test a bunch of different iOS and Android devices on the site and have found that it is quite welcoming no matter what device you have.
If you're running any kind of Apple device that is more recent than an iPhone 4G or any kind of Android device running Android 4.0 or better, you'll be able to have an uninterrupted gaming experience filled with fun and joy.
We tested a range of phones from providers such as Samsung, Huawei, HTC, LG and OnePlus. We've even tested different iPhone models from the iPhone 4G all the way up to the iPhone X. iPad testing is also one of our priorities and we didn't run into any issues whatsoever when testing out White Lotus.
We know how important it can be as South Africans when data is concerned. With mobile network providers like MTN and Vodacom, you're probably always worried about using too much data. With the test that we ran on mobile networks and over WiFi, we found that there isn't that much difference.
Sure, most fibre connections are faster and you don't need to worry about having a good signal when you're on ADSL, you will be able to get just as good an experience on a mobile network as you do on WiFi. The mobile casino uses less memory and less data on your phone, and it's specifically designed this way to ensure a pleasurable experience.
While flicking through some of the games in the games menu on White Lotus, you'll come across a number of different categories. There are many different types of slots to choose from as well as some progressive slots and specialty games. That's not to mention the plethora of table games too.
White Lotus uses RealTime Gaming (RTG) software and as a result of that, you'll get access to over 150 high quality slots and around 20 table games. You'll get a large amount of video poker games, some specialty games and a few progressive jackpots too.
Unfortunately there aren't any live casino games on offer at White Lotus and we're unsure if that's going to change in the near future. Your catalogue of games on mobile will also be a little less because instant play games need to be specifically configured to play on mobile.
If you're in the market for table games like blackjack, you'll be able to enjoy 21 Face Up, European Blackjack, Pontoon and 21 Blackjack. You'll be able to play a bunch of video poker and multi hand video poker games at White Lotus too.
You can enjoy some European or American Roulette under the specialty games tab, as well as Keno, Craps and Treasure Tree.
Our choice for slots:
While RTG does offer some progressive, there isn't a lot of choice. With White Lotus you'll only get access to two progressive jackpot games in Spirit of the Inca and Megasaur. Neither of these has the strength and rapport that something like Mega Moolah might have, but both have been provider to be millionaire-maker slots too.
As White Lotus does cater to South Africans for the most part, you'll be able to find a bunch of different deposit and withdrawal methods. One of the big draw factors for White Lotus is that it has Internet Banking Transfers and Secure Instant Deposits (SID) too. You'll also find the more common ways of depositing through credit cards and ewallets. There is no cryptocurrency support yet.
The trick to getting your money out isn't how you're going to get it out, but rather how quickly. If you decide to go the bank transfer route, which many people may, and deposit straight into your ABSA, FNB, Standard Bank or Nedbank account, you'd be lucky if the money was in your account within the week.
The faster ways to withdraw are definitely in ewallets and you can expect to have money in your account within 24-48 hours.
With White Lotus, we've already spoken about the welcome bonus and the no deposit bonus coupons. You'll also be eligible for the cashback promotion that White Lotus is running which gives you a 100% cash back bonus on up to quite a substantial amount.
This cashback bonus can be requested once every 24 hours provided that no other promotions have been used in conjunction with the same promotion.
White Lotus is a fantastic addition to the South African gambling arena. You're offered a fantastic bunch of promotions that, while limited in number, still offer great bang for your buck. RTG has a nice variety of games on offer and while you won't find as many variations on certain games at White Lotus as you do at other sites, you'll still be able to enjoy yourself.
The customer support is quick and easy but they are lacking a local toll free number. In the last two years that White Lotus has launched, they have really added so much value to the casino. If they continue doing so and keep going from strength to strength, our review team could be using White Lotus as their own go-to permanent online casino.
