Online casino and bingo operator, Jumpman Gaming, launched a raft of new sites on its Jumpman Slots network in 2017, one of which was 123 Spins.
Using Jumpman’s considerable amount of experience in the online gaming industry, 123 Spins aims to primarily please slots players, but there are also a limited number of casino games and video poker games to enjoy as well.
The site features the familiar offerings associated with Jumpman Slots’ brands including the Mega Reel welcome game, the trophies reward system, and VIP programme. But, is it as easy as 1-2-3 to settle in and enjoy yourself? Let’s find out!
There’s not a whole lot to make 123 Spins stand out from its sister sites. The background consists of simple pale-pink wallpaper, and the neon-style logo at the top of the page has a slightly retro feel to it.
Little has been done to give 123 Spins a hard-hitting brand image, which is something that we’ve discovered with most of the other brands on the Jumpman Slots network.
Unfortunately, 24/7 customer support is not on the menu. Instead, members can get in touch from Monday to Friday between 9.30 AM and 6 PM, which is not terribly helpful for anyone wishing to play in the evening or at weekends.
Still, there is the option to speak to the team via live chat. You can also contact them by email and Facebook.
There are six long-term special offers listed on the Promotions page, which are the same as the ones hosted by other Jumpman Slots sites.
They begin with the welcome offer, which you can qualify for by making a first deposit of £10 or more. This makes you eligible to take one free spin on the Mega Reel. The prizes can consist of free spins on popular online slots (N.B., up to 500) and Amazon vouchers.
But, what we don’t like is that the terms and conditions state that “winning a prize is not guaranteed”. Also, the wagering requirements, not just for the welcome bonus, but for any bonuses and free spins offers, weigh in at 65x!
The remaining promotions include thirty-one days of double cashback for new customers, a free spins on the enhanced Turbo Reel with every qualifying deposit, the chance to win a pizza delivery through the VIP Pizza Club, and Happy Hours on Wednesday afternoons when you can win 500 free spins.
123 Spins uses Jumpman Gaming software, which is nowhere near as all-singing and all-dancing as software platforms such as Virtue Fusion and Playtech, but it gets the job done in a reliable fashion.
The games load fairly fast, and it’s easy to find what you’re looking for thanks to the filters and search box that appear at the top of the lobby. One thing that’s missing, however, is the ability to play games in full-screen mode.
For a newish online casino, it’s hard to forgive the lack of information on mobile play. Luckily, as our team is au fait with Jumpman Slots software, we know that 123 Spins is mobile-compatible, so you simply head to the website using your mobile device’s browser and sign-up or log-in.
If there’s one thing that 123 Spins does well, it’s ticking all the boxes when it comes to safety and security. The site is dually licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Commission and the UK Gambling Commission, and the Random Number Generator software has been externally tested and certified by SQS. SSL encryption from GoDaddy is also in place to protect your data.
There are over 200 games to choose from at 123 Spins, most of which are online slots. There’s a good mix of software providers such as Eyecon, NetEnt, Elk Studios, Pariplay, and NYX Interactive, and many popular slots are offered, including Fluffy Favourites, Twin Spin, Guns N Roses, Starburst, and Koi Princess.
You also have the option to play a small collection of video poker and table games such as Joker Wild Double Up, Roulette, Blackjack, and Jacks or Better.
The choice of banking methods is relatively small for a UK online casino with just Paypal, Pay by Phone, credit card, debit card, and Paysafecard on offer.
The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts of £10 and £30 respectively are a little higher than ideal, and the withdrawal policy is somewhat restrictive as you can only request two withdrawals during a twenty-four hour period. Plus, there’s a 24-hour pending period before requests are processed.
You start off as a Newbie in the site’s VIP scheme, but as you earn Kudos by making deposits and playing real-money games, you can move up the other four levels. The rewards are limited to weekly cashback, free spins on the Mega Reel, and birthday bonuses, which may not be enough to satisfy players who are looking for more generous VIP perks.
We can imagine that anyone who’s new to online casinos and is particularly interested in playing online slots will feel at home at 123 Spins.
Sadly, for those who’ve played at bigger brands, it just doesn’t cut the mustard with its high wagering requirements, lack of individuality, small selection of casino games, and limited VIP rewards.
