Luckia.pt is a sports betting platform that has enjoyed plenty of success in Portugal’s immediate neighbor, Spain. It really is a favorite amongst Spanish sports bettors, but it took quite a while until Luckia.pt decided to enter the Portuguese market. However, it was worth the wait, and there’s a lot to admire about this platform. Luckia.pt has some of the best betting odds compared with other sportsbooks in Portugal, and they have a solid range of sports along with many supported payment methods.
Luckia.pt operates using SBtech software for its sportsbook, meaning that the display of the sports and markets are both structured and spacious. You can shortlist your favorite sports if you desire, as well as view upcoming events and in-play markets through clear labels. For the main sports section, shown in a list format at the side of the page, you’ll find sports like tennis, football, hockey, basketball, and even American football.
There’s one key statistic with Luckia.pt that makes it particularly appealing – the average betting margin on the platform is 6% higher than the industry average. Simply put, you’ll get better value from the odds with Luckia.pt compared to other Portuguese sportsbooks. Please note that this is just an average figure, and the odds for each individual sport can vary. Like other sportsbooks in Portugal, football is heavily favored with Luckia.pt as seen by the hundreds of available markets every single day.
Luckia.pt has a very similar welcome bonus to other sportsbooks in Portugal. For those who have just signed up, there is a 50% deposit match on offer, where the bonus funds are distributed as free bets. To qualify for this bonus, you must fund your account with more than 10€, and there is no need to enter a promo code.
Luckia.pt follows quite a similar pattern to what we’ve seen with other sportsbooks regarding reload promotions. There aren’t specific promotions that run week after week. This platform instead, creates bonuses at random and informs members via text/email when they become available.
Based on what we’ve seen from Luckia.pt, these bonuses come in the form of free sports bets, percentage boosts on winning bets, cashback for certain markets, and even insurance on total net losses. We can’t give specifics on the value or terms of these offers, but we’d highly advise logging into your account as often as you can so that you don’t miss out on any bonuses that become available.
Members of the Luckia.pt sportsbook can enjoy a very convenient betting experience through the iOS and Android app. From the mobile app, you have the choice of more than 200,000 betting events listed on an annual basis. You can also stream certain events from the app by clicking the ‘Luckia TV’ link. The design of this app is both slick and sophisticated, and in our experience, we believe it’s quicker to place bets from the app compared to the desktop site.
Luckia.pt has a much better range of payment methods compared to other platforms. If you’d like to fund your account, you can do so through Multibanco, PayPal, Paysafecard, Neteller, Skrill, MasterCard, and Visa. There is a minimum deposit requirement of 10€ for all methods except Neteller and Skrill, where this is 30€.
When withdrawing your funds, there is actually no stated minimum. Rather than have a minimum requirement, Luckia.pt will charge you 5€ to withdraw any amount under 25€. Any amounts above 25€ are free of fees, and the standard processing time is 48-72 hours.
In order to get your money quicker than this, we’d recommend choosing any of the e-wallet methods, as these can sometimes come through in under 24 hours!
The Luckia.pt sportsbook is owned by a company named Luckia Portugal SA, which is a registered company in Portugal. The platform is 100% legal and able to offer sports betting services as they have a license from the SRIJ – the governing body for regulating online betting in Portugal.
As an added bonus, the platform has been put together using SBtech software, a company with years in the industry. For this reason, you can be sure that the website won’t experience too many technical issues. As a final degree of protection, Luckia.pt actively uses SSL encryption for financial pages on the platform.
Luckia.pt has three main avenues that members can use to contact the support team. There is a free telephone number to call, an email support address, and live chat services. All of these options are available between the hours of 12 PM and 8 PM, which gives you just an 8-hour window to receive assistance.
Despite the relatively small window in which to speak with the support team, this does have its benefits. Agents are usually available in high volume, meaning that regardless of the method you use (except email), you’ll receive help within minutes.
You can always try and find help through the platforms FAQ page too, which contains information about login problems, mobile app issues, and common withdrawal questions.
For such a new platform, at least in the Portuguese market, we were considerably impressed with what Luckia.pt has developed. The odds available combined with the general depth of markets is particularly admirable. Since all of this is also accessible from a professional mobile app, Luckia.pt certainly looks like it is a platform that is striving for excellence in Portugal.
