Since the Jumpman Slots network was launched in 2016, its operator has been busily expanding the portfolio of online casinos within it. Big Win Vegas is one of the most recent additions, and it comes with all of the features we’ve come to expect from Jumpman Slots brands such as the Mega Reel, Pizza Club, daily cashback for VIPs, and Happy Hours, as well as a heck of a lot of online slots. But is Big Win Vegas a winner in our eyes?
Big Win Vegas looks to be a more serious online casino than many of the brands that sit on the Jumpman Slots network such as Cop Slots and Wizard Slots. Neon lettering gives it a Las Vegas feel while the image of a high roller sitting at a poker table with a big stack of chips and a glass of whisky is possibly designed to appeal to more seasoned gamblers.
The welcome offer is impossible to miss as not only does it take up a good portion of the homepage, but it also instantly catches the eye with its bright-pink “500 free spins”.
The main menu and log-in/sign-up area are more modestly presented in black-and-white, and by scrolling further down the page, you can take a look at some of the site’s most popular slots, see some of the latest lucky winners, and read about what Big Win Vegas has to offer.
In the past, Jumpman Slots’ casinos were the only kind of online casinos we’re aware of that offered support via WhatsApp. So, it’s a shame to see that this option has been removed. However, live chat and email support are still available, but only from Monday to Friday between 9.30 AM and 6 PM.
The main drawbacks of Big Win Vegas are that it only offers networked promotions (i.e. you won’t find any exclusive deals here), plus the bonus wagering requirements are higher than average (N.B., 65x).
However, there’s a reasonable variety of promos that should appeal to most players, including daily cashback (as part of the VIP scheme) and double cashback for new customers during their first month, a free spin on the Mega Reel for new players and re-depositors which can result in your winning up to five hundred free spins, a bigger and better version of the Mega Reel called the Turbo Reel for those who top-up their account with £100 or more, a weekly pizza competition, free spins during Happy Hours, and the 200 Club which awards a free Amazon voucher and free spins to players who collect at least two hundred trophies.
The trophy system also makes life more interesting by encouraging (but not forcing) you to gain levels by completing achievements through a variety of tasks such as making a deposit by Paypal and playing specific games.
The operator behind Big Win Vegas and its sister sites uses in-house software known as the Jumpman Slots network to power the casino. The platform comes with hundreds of different games from many well-known software providers, and allows you to filter the options alphabetically and by newest or search for particular slots.
The disadvantages of the software are that you can’t play games full-screen, and there are no separate tabs in the lobby for casino games, video poker, and casual games.
At the very bottom of the homepage, there’s a small paragraph dedicated to Mobile Casino. It doesn’t do the best job of explaining how it works, but basically, all you need is a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone, an internet connection, and a web browser. Once you’ve created an account, you can simply log in on the move and enjoy playing your favourite games to your heart’s content.
Big Win Vegas is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Commission. The random number generator software which is used to ensure fairness has been externally tested by SQS, and SSL encryption is used to keep your data secure and safe.
The first Jumpman Slots casino started out with a selection of 250 games, but due to new additions to the lobby, there are now more like 400 to choose from. The software providers range from Microgaming, NYX Interactive, and Eyecon to NetEnt, Pariplay, and Elk Studios.
Online slots make up the biggest selection of games, with plenty of top titles on offer such as Fluffy Too, Immortal Romance, Warlords, Gonzo’s Quest, Irish Eyes 2, and Shaman’s Dream.
While the options for fans of casino games, casual games, and scratch cards are much smaller, many popular titles are represented, including Jacks or Better, Keno, Spin Lotto, European Roulette, Texas Hold’em, Blackjack, and Punto Banco.
You can use Paypal, Pay by Mobile, Paysafecard, debit card or credit card to fund your Big Win Vegas account. Sadly, neither Skrill nor Neteller are accepted at this point in time.
The only accepted currency is GBP, and you can add up to three payment cards to your account.
You can add as little as £10 to your account, but if you’re hoping to make a withdrawal, you must cash-out at least £30 per transaction, and it can take up to five business days for your request to be processed.
The VIP scheme at Big Win Vegas lets you climb through several different levels by collecting Kudos with each deposit that you make. There are five levels in total, and to gain promotion, you must hit the minimum monthly deposit requirements listed on the VIP page. The perks are reasonable but by no means mind-blowing, and they include weekly cashback, birthday bonuses, and free spins.
Big Win Vegas is an average online casino that has both pros and cons. Working in its favour are the UK gambling license, a broad selection of slots, live chat facility, and easily-accessible mobile platform. But, potential new customers may be put off by the downsides such as the lack of 24/7 support, high bonus wagering requirements, and slow withdrawal processing.
