What we recommend instead
Amazon Slots Verdict
The design of Amazon Slots is more adventurous and exciting than many of its sister sites, but when you look underneath the bonnet, you’ll find the same set of games and promotions as other brands on the same network. If the site’s owners could find a way to make Amazon Slots more exclusive while simultaneously bringing the wagering requirements down to a more acceptable level, we envisage Amazon’s popularity rising.
Design & Usability
Parrots, waterfalls, totem gods, and greenery combined with bright tropical colours make Amazon Slots an inviting site. We also like how the site’s designer has animated the waterfall in the centre of the homepage so that it looks like it’s cascading crystal-clear water.
The website’s layout follows a sensible format that gives you the option to sign-up or log in at the top of the homepage, view the main pages like Promotions, and see how the welcome offer works.
On the right-hand-side, there’s a scrolling list of recent winners which includes some impressive prizes ranging from £34k to £73k.
Further down the homepage, you can view some of the featured slot games as well as read all about Amazon Slots.
Software & Gameplay
Jumpman Slots software is used to power the casino, and the user interface is both easy to use and responsive. The majority of games are designed to fit any screen size, and you can try out titles from world-famous software suppliers like NYX Gaming and NetEnt.
While the lobby includes an A-Z filter, search box, and an option to ‘favourite’ particular games, it could benefit from more categories. For example, table games and instants are currently lumped in with the 300+ online slots, which means that they’re quite hard to find.
Safety & Security
Amazon Slots holds both a UK Gambling Commission license and an Alderney Gambling Control Commission license. The website uses an independently tested random number generator (RNG), a secure URL, and SSL encryption, and you can read more about security and privacy by clicking the relevant links at the bottom of the homepage.
Payments & Withdrawals
There are several ways to fund your account, including credit card, debit card, Entropay, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard, Paypal, and Pay by Phone. Withdrawal requests are processed within forty-eight hours of receipt which isn’t unreasonable, but the minimum withdrawal amount of £30 may be a little hard for some players to swallow.
Live chat is available but only from Monday to Friday between 9.30 AM to 6 PM. The alternative contact methods are email and Facebook Messenger.
Bonuses & Promotions
Our main issue with the bonuses and promotions, apart from the excessively high wagering requirements of 65x, is that there’s nothing unique. So, if you’ve played at other brands on the Jumpman Slots Network, prepare for a strong sense of déjà vu!
The Mega Reel welcome offer is open to players making their first deposit of £10 or more, and it gives you the chance to win free spins or an Amazon voucher. But, be warned, because in the terms and conditions, it states that prizes aren’t guaranteed.
As a new player, you can benefit from double cashback for your first month, and each time that you reload your account, you’ll be entitled to either a free spin on the Mega Reel or the Turbo Reel. On Wednesdays, you can win free spins via the Happy Hours promotion, and on Sundays, a £15 pizza e-voucher is up for grabs.
While Amazon Slots bills itself as “a fun and fab Pay by Mobile casino”, it doesn’t tell you whether or not a mobile app is offered. Due to our familiarity with the Jumpman Slots network, we know that iOS and Android apps aren’t used as the HTML5 web design lets you log in to your account via any compatible web browser.
Variety & Originality
You’re unlikely to ever run out of options while playing slot games at Amazon Slots as new titles are regularly added to the lobby and there are currently over three hundred games to choose from. Some of the most popular slots include Gonzo’s Quest, Irish Luck, Avalon, Basketball Star, Electric Sam, Emoji Planet, Silver Lioness, Shaman’s Dream, and Mermaids Millions. In addition, there are thirty-six jackpot slot games which range from Holmes and the Stolen Stones, Fae Legend Warrior, and Temple of Ausar to Shopping Spree, Jurassic Juniors, and Past the Post.
Although there are only a few in comparison to the slots, the casual games and table games are worth a closer look. You’ll find the likes of American Roulette, Jacks or Better, Cash Buster Towers, Boss the Lotto, Casino Hold’em, Cash Cuisine, Diamond Deal, Crossword Cash, and Deuces Wild on offer.
Loyalty & Rewards
The standard Jumpman Slots loyalty programme is in place, and it gives you the chance to earn trophies and free spins by completing tasks and unlock new levels. The VIP system also lets you work your way up the tiers to qualify for birthday bonuses, monthly cashback, and free spins.
