Our Take

Thunderbolt was founded in 2014, and a year later was acquired by the Springbok Group. All services are licensed and regulated by the jurisdiction of Curacao. The only language option is English, and the primary focus of interest is the audience from South Africa. South African players contribute most to this website’s traffic, followed by visitors from the USA, New Zealand, Germany, and Hungary. The majority of other countries around the world are accepted, as well.

There are three ways to play. The first and classic one is to download and install the software. This process is fast and automatic, and has the sign-up form built into the procedure. Another option is to register and play online from browsers. This variation features a slightly smaller selection of games, and there is no live dealer. Finally, for mobile phones and tablets there is the portable adaptation, which is instant and compatible with the majority of modern gadgets.

Login is required even for demo play. Personal information and account settings are the only data needed to become a member and be eligible for multiple bonuses and a variety of betting options.

Our Take

Being a South Africa-targeted website, this operator accepts deposits and allows withdrawals only in the local currency. Aside from South African rand, no other currency is allowed. Options to add money to the account or receive wins are also limited. Among the few methods available are several e-wallets, like Neteller and EcoPayz, a few major credit and debit cards, like MasterCard and Visa, and offline bank transfer and its variations - EasyEFT and SID.

 

Limits for payouts are low. No more than ZAR 1,577 is allowed per single transaction, and the maximum monthly amount is only ZAR 6,308. The advertised payout time is from two to three business days. Clients report that quite often they need to wait around five business days.

Ratings online vary from mid to high. While Latest Casino Bonuses rates it at 2 out of 5, and The POGG publishes a verdict of 3 out of 10, AskGamblers believes that it is worth 7 out of 10.

Our Take

There is a large selection of promotions. The welcome bonus is a package on the first four deposits, with the fourth one being no-deposit. Wagering requirements are 30xBD, which is the level of complexity below average. Newly registered gamers can also claim 50 free spins on one of the slots.


Among other offers is 25% cashback. Users of the mobile platform can claim a 5x50% offer up to ZAR 1,000, complemented with 15 free spins on the Mermaid Queen game. Active rollers can collect loyalty points and count on becoming VIP members with additional benefits. Thunderbolt has also introduced the Hot & Cold feature recently. It offers two games and allows players to guess which game is the most popular at the moment, and which one is the least used. The size of win varies accordingly.

Popular Games on Thunderbolt Casino

Our Take

There are up to 200 games by Real Time Gaming. All cohorts - except live dealer in the online version - are available. As with all operators using RTG’s software, the Flash lobby has standard categories: Slots, Special, Table Games, and Video Poker. No other filters or search options are developed.

 

As to the content of each classification, the biggest selection is of slot machines, represented by 3-Reel and video slots, and also several popular progressive jackpots. Unlike this cohort, the arcades are small. Their shelves host only a few options, among which are bingo and keno.

 

The second biggest category is video pokers, with both popular and rarer variations. Table games focus mostly on table pokers and blackjack, and allow bets to be placed on Texas Hold’em, Let’em Ride, European Blackjack, Perfect Pairs, and a few other options. While the online library has a small selection of roulette types, in the downloadable client the choice is bigger. Aside from these games, there are also craps, Sic Bo, and baccarat.
