Slotmine Casino, as you might have guessed from the title, is focused on online slot games. That’s not to say that it doesn’t have roulette, blackjack and the like, it’s just that they concentrate more on the slots side of things. So, let’s get this review on the road
Licencing and Security
Slotmine is operated by St Minver, which is part of the Lottomattica group (Italy’s national lottery), so whilst the casino is relatively new (online since 2009), you can take comfort in the fact that the team actually running the casino have done it a few times before!
In addition to that, St Minver (and hence Slotmine Casino) is licenced by Gibraltar, a jurisdiction on the UK Government’s whitelist of approved licencing authorities that are considered to have a good level of regulation in place. This means that you can be fairly confident about the fairness of the games.
The casino uses Gtech G2 to power its games, which are all instant play flash versions, so no need to download anything, which is a good start. Slotmine also has a selection of instant play games from other software providers, including the likes of IGT, so you can play on favourites such as Cleopatra and Rainbow Riches.
Slotmine supports only a few major payment options (for example, it doesn’t include PayPal), but unless you have a rather obscure preferred e-wallet this isn’t going to cause too many problems. The casino takes VISA debit, credit and electron cards, Mastercards, Maestro, NETeller, UKash, Paysafecard and Skrill (the new name for Moneybookers).
Withdrawals are limited to £2,500 per day, but this won’t impact most players (be nice if it did though!) You’re also restricted to use the method that you used to deposit to withdraw. We used a credit card on sign up which takes 3-5 days to process back to your account.
At the time of writing, Slotmine are offering a sign up bonus of a 100% deposit match up to £125. This has just a x20 playthrough requirement attached to your deposit value, which is much lower than some other casinos where this can be up to 40 or 50 times your original deposit+bonus value. Do be aware though that the terms and conditions limit any win made via the registration bonus to £30 – so it’s more of a bonus to extend your play rather than one where you can expect to win a huge amount off the back of it.
There are also other offers which get updated regularly which can be casino related or just a cool prize – at the moment they are giving away tickets to the X-Factor live shows (well, it’s cool if you like that sort of thing!)
With the casino focused on the UK market, the free phone number is only for the UK, though there is an international number that you can call. Customer support is available 24 hours a day, and is available via phone, e-mail and post. There’s no instant chat option at present, but this is not the end of the world.
Slotmine doesn’t pretend to be a fancy casino, and it’s not. That doesn’t mean it’s bad, rather you get exactly what you’d expect – simple layout, simple games and good customer service (they picked up the phone within a couple of rings and answered our query pretty quickly). So if you like your slots, and fancy a go, why not head over there now…
