Jester Jackpots Verdict
Jester Jackpots is a pleasant site, but it isn’t anything special. Most of the offerings are standard to Cassava sites. However, this site will appeal a lot to those who like a casual, simple site. New online gamblers in particular will like the very user-friendly site, easy support access and lively art style. The promotions are a little lacking here, but may be of interest for anyone looking for some extra spins.
Design & Usability
The site design for Jester Jackpots is really big and bold, using the full screen space for bright panels of colour. Some will find it jarring, but it’s refreshingly fun and casual. The site’s jester logo and a jester silhouette are used everywhere, appearing over these large panels which feature art from the slots. The design could be more original, but it’s lively and fun.
Navigation is pretty easy, with the standard account area at the top right and a simple row of navigation buttons. Each area is clearly marked and has sub-menus where necessary. There’s a live chat link on all pages, so help is easy to find. All in all, this site is simple and easy to use- it won’t blow you away, but there’s nothing to fault.
Software & Gameplay
The slots area is nice and clear here, with games shown on simple tiles. There are some categories to pick from and a search box, but nothing special.
The games load almost instantly, but they just appear in a pop-up window. There’s no special overlay or any site controls. Your basic setup, but also very reliable and easy to use.
Safety & Security
Jester Jackpots is licensed and regulated by the Government of Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission. Security on site is covered by VeriSign, protecting your details with encryption.
The site has a good responsible gaming area with links to some helpful gambling assistance organisations, plus the site has the eCOGRA logo meaning that fairness is guaranteed by a third party.
Payments & Withdrawals
Click on Banking and you get a little floating panel with the option to convert points, then there’s a separate pop-up cashier. This is the standard interface for Cassava sites and it’s actually very good, a simple set of icons to follow. Withdrawal takes around 4-7 working days.
Payment methods accepted include wire transfer, credit and debit cards, PaySafeCard, EntroPay and PayPal. More e-wallets would be nice, but PayPal is definitely the main one for the average UK user.
You can reach Jester Jackpots Casino via live chat, email and phone. These can all be found on the contacts page. The phone lines are open until 1am, but chat appears to be round the clock so this will be your main method.
The team were very helpful in our experience, but you also have a rough set of FAQs on the help page, for common questions.
Bonuses & Promotions
The welcome package at Jester Jackpots Casino is a mighty £600, but this is split over several deposits. Your first deposit is matched by 100% up to £200, with 50 free spins for Rainbow Riches. Your second is matched by 50% up to £200, with 25 spins on Jack and the Beanstalk. Your third is matched by 50% up to £200, with 25 free spins on Starburst. These are good reasons to return, but they have a high wagering requirement of 65x which is well above average.
Unfortunately, that’s your lot for promotions. There may be occasional extras, but the only other offer at the time of writing was a £10 refer a friend bonus.
A visit to the site’s dedicated mobile guide shows that Jester Jackpots has a mobile site, which you can see by visiting the usual site on your phone browser. There are no apps for this site.
The Jester Jackpots mobile page is actually standard to Cassava sites. You get a simple splash page, then logging in, the site loads a kind of mobile app. This is identical to any sister sites, but it is very reliable and easy to use. Not as solid as a true mobile site, but useful and accessible.
Variety & Originality
There are not many slot providers at Jester Jackpots, so the variety is smaller than some sites, but you still get a nice mix and some top-quality games. NetEnt brings along favourites like Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest, PariPlay brings Rio Bingo, Eyecon bring Noughts and Crosses. For something scary, try the Nightmare on Elm street game by 888 slots. There are 16 jackpots to go for too.
The casino section is very limited here. You have baccarat, roulette and keno, with just a couple of variations. Fortunately, there are some live dealer games to bolster this. The Deal or No Deal themed roulette is good fun, too.
Loyalty & Rewards
The Jester Jackpots VIP system is not really described on site. This is invite-only and the rewards involved are kept quiet, so it isn’t terribly exciting. VIP users can expect the usual special promotions and bonuses, however.
All players can also gain loyalty points as they play, then later convert them into credit.
