Gold Rush Slots verdict

Prospecting for gold in the good old days of the American West is the theme of Jumpman Gaming’s Gold Rush Slots online casino. It was launched in the same month as Rocket Slots, which also forms part of the Jumpman Slots network. What sets Gold Rush Slots apart from most of its competitors is the fact that it chooses not to offer a fixed number of free spins or a deposit bonus in favour of a prize wheel, which you can spin when you deposit at least £10 to your new account. You can also earn trophies and rewards as you play, take advantage of Happy Hours, and win everything from free spins and cashback to pizza. But, should you rush down to sign-up ASAP?

design & Usability

Gold Slots uses a theme that’s inspired by the days where Americans raced to join the Gold Rush. The graphics include desert and cactus-filled landscapes, a gold coin for the “Log In” button, and the logo which is trimmed with chunks of gold. The layout is the same as other Jumpman Slots’ casinos, and presents you with a four-part menu system (containing information on trophies, promotions, games, and help), a welcome bonus banner, and a list of featured games. You can also peruse the list of latest winners which is presented on the right-hand side of the homepage, although we’re not sure if the wins were all won by Gold Rush Slots members or across all of the sites in the network.

The lobby provides you with a search box that can be used to locate particular games, and there are five tabs which let you view Hot Slots, My Faves, Newest, Jackpots, and A to Z.

customer Support

Customer service is offered via three different methods: live chat, email, and WhatsApp. While it’s nice to see a utility like WhatsApp included, we’d prefer there to be a dedicated telephone number. The reason that we’re not awarding more than three stars to Gold Rush Slots for its customer support is because both WhatsApp and live help are only available between 9.30 AM and 6 PM from Monday to Friday when most people are likely to be working and not playing at the casino.

bonuses & Promotions

Like its sister sites, Gold Rush Slots uses a prize wheel called the Mega Reel which you get to play once you’ve made your first deposit of £10 or above. It offers a variety of prizes ranging from Amazon vouchers to free spins. However, the maximum bonus winnings you can convert are £250, and the wagering requirements are an eye-watering 65x. It’s also possible that you won’t win a prize at all!

The networked promotions allow new players to get double cashback during their first month, after which, weekly cashback is awarded depending on your current VIP level. Happy Hours run between 3 PM and 7 PM every Wednesday, and give you the chance to win ten or more free spins on selected slots if you’ve deposited that week. The VIP-exclusive Pizza Club promotion rewards the five highest wagerers with a £15 pizza e-voucher every Sunday while the Turbo Reel (containing prizes of fifty to five hundred free spins) can potentially be unlocked by members who make a single deposit of £100 or more.

software & Gameplay

Gold Rush Slots’ operator, Jumpman Gaming, uses its own software to drive the website. As casino software goes, it’s pretty basic but on the plus side, it’s easy to use and fairly stable. Sadly, you don’t seem to have the option to try games out in demo mode nor are there any overviews of the various games. It’s recommended that you use Google Chrome as your web browser, and you’ll need Adobe Flash player installed to be able to play on your desktop.

device Compatibility

There’s no information about mobile devices and no mobile slot apps to download and, therefore, we suggest you try visiting Gold Rush Slots via your mobile internet browser to see if the site works correctly. FYI - we tested it out on an Android smartphone and were able to play without any issues.

safety & Security

Gold Rush Slots is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission license as well as the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. You can read more information on privacy and security by clicking on the Privacy Policy link at the bottom of any webpage. Gold Rush Slots uses GoDaddy SSL encryption to keep your data safe, and the random number generator software has been signed-off by SQS.

variety & Originality

There are around 300 games to choose from at Gold Rush Slots, most of which are slots. There are games by NetEnt, NYX Interactive, Elk Studios, Eyecon, Microgaming, and Pariplay.

The most popular slots and jackpot slots range from Immortal Romance, Twin Spin, Starburst and Thunderstruck II to Twinkle, Fluffy Too Mega Jackpot, Mega Moolah, and Irish Luck.

There are some video poker, instant wins, and casino games on offer too, including Jacks or Better, Texas Hold’em, Tennis Scratch, Spin Lotto, Blackjack Touch, Big Money Slingo, Lucky Keno, and Punto Banco.    

payments & Withdrawals

You can fund your Gold Rush Slots account using Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Paysafecard, Paypal or Pay by Mobile. The minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts are £10 and £30 respectively. When you wish to make a withdrawal, you must wait 48 hours for your requested to move out of its “pending” phase, after which it will be processed within three to five working days.

VIP Programme

Firstly, Gold Rush Slots invites to you undertake tasks to unlock level-based trophies, and each new level that you unlock gets you a free spin on the Mega Reel.

The VIP scheme includes five levels (Newbie, Expert, Pro, VIP, and Legend), each of which offers a different amount of free spins and weekly cashback, and all of which reward you with a birthday bonus. To move up the levels, you need to earn Kudos which is awarded at the rate of one Kudos per £1 deposited. Please note that in order to maintain your VIP status, you’ll need to meet some pretty hefty monthly wagering requirements (N.B., Expert = £100+; Pro = £1,000+; VIP = £5,000+, and Legend = £20,000+).

conclusion

Apart from the fact that Gold Rush Slots is simply a clone of its sister sites, the ridiculously high wagering requirements for the bonus offers and monthly wagering requirements for the VIP scheme detract from Gold Rush’s decent range of games. So, we’d only recommend signing-up if you’re not fussed about claiming bonus or earning loyalty rewards.
