What we recommend instead
London Jackpots Verdict
We like the fact that Jumpman Slots sites like London Jackpots allow you to play both online bingo and slots, but on the other hand, there are several constraints that come with being a member of the Jumpman Slots network which aren’t ideal. For example, the bonuses come with high wagering requirements and the payment options are limited.
Design & Usability
While London Jackpots isn’t as inventive with its theme as some of the other sites on the Jumpman Slots network (e.g. Wizard Slots and Fairground Slots), it conveys the message that it’s a casino for UK players, which is true. However, it’s a shame that the operator hasn’t made better use of the London theme (for example, by adding images of the city skyline or landmarks) as currently, the only reference to the UK’s capital bar the casino’s name is the UK flag in the brand logo.
Plus, the black-and-white colour scheme makes the casino too easy to forget among the bigger online gaming brands.
Although the design of the site could be much improved, it’s very easy to find your way around. There’s a small menu at the top of the page with a section where you can login or join underneath it. The Mega Reel welcome offer also does a good job of encouraging prospective players to sign-up for the chance to win 500 free spins.
Further down, the mobile platform is advertised alongside a list of recent winners followed by an introduction to London Jackpots.
Software & Gameplay
London Jackpots runs on Jumpman Gaming software, a no-frills but easy-to-use platform that lets you choose between slots and bingo games using various filters in the games lobby. The software comes with titles from Quickspin, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, NetEnt, and Yggdrasil among others. You can bookmark your favourite games but sadly, you can’t play any titles in full-screen mode.
Safety & Security
London Jackpots is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK 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.
Payments & Withdrawals
The payment methods that you can choose from include MasterCard, Visa, Paysafecard, Paypal, Maestro, and Pay by Phone, but unfortunately, Neteller, Skrill, and Entropay are not offered.
Although the minimum deposit amount is just £10, the minimum withdrawal amount of £30 seems rather high. It can also take up to five business days for withdrawal requests to be processed.
Not so long ago, Jumpman Slots’ casinos offered WhatsApp as one of their contact methods, but this option seems to have bitten the dust. Although you can get assistance via email and live chat, the live chat service only operates between 9.30 AM and 6 PM from Monday to Friday.
Bonuses & Promotions
The casino’s Promotions page features a variety of offers, although it would be nice to see some daily, weekly or monthly specials added. The same promotions are available at London Jackpots’ sister sites, so some exclusive deals would also be beneficial.
When you sign-up and deposit £10 or more, you get a free spin on the Mega Reel which can award anything from 10 to 500 free spins on popular slots or Amazon vouchers. However, before you dive in to claim the offer, you should be aware that the terms and conditions include sky-high 65x wagering requirements, plus a prize is not guaranteed. As a regular player, you can also spin the Mega Reel each time that you deposit £20 or above to your account.
Other promotions that you can take advantage of include Double Real Cashback which is exclusively for new players during their first month of play, daily cashback for regular members, the chance to win a Pizza Express voucher on Sundays, Happy Hours, and the Turbo Reel which (like the Mega Reel) gives you the opportunity to win free spins with each deposit of £100 or more.
You can easily play at London Jackpots on your mobile device in the same way that you can with other sites on the Jumpman Slots network. There’s no need to download any software or install a dedicated app as you simply log-in via your mobile browser.
Variety & Originality
Online bingo is a recent and pleasant addition to the casino, and you can play in the Lucky Stars room for between 1p and 5p per ticket, enjoy free games if you’re a funded player, play in the VIP free room, play Fair and Square games for 1p per ticket, and participate in the networked £1K Pay Day Jackpot game for 50p per card.
The other games that are on offer at London Jackpots are primarily slots such as Fortunium, Rio Fever, Jack in the Box, Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix, Fluffy Favourites, and Starburst. There are also plenty of jackpot slot games including Bar Star, Piggy Payout, Fluffy Favourites Fairground, White Wizard, Unicorn Bliss, and Shaman’s Dream.
Although they’re hard to find due to the absence of a table games category, you can enjoy video poker and classic casino games like Jacks or Better, European Roulette, Casino Hold’em, Texas Hold’em, Blackjack, and American Roulette. Plus, there are some scratch cards and instants including Keno, Diamond Deal, Spin Lotto, and Atari Star Raiders Scratch.
Loyalty & Rewards
London Jackpots operates a VIP scheme that consists of five different tiers that players can work their way through to collect daily cashback (N.B., between 1% and 10%), daily free spins (N.B., between 5 and 20), and birthday bonuses. The scheme is open to all funded players and to rise up the levels, you need to collect Kudos by making deposits to your account and playing real-money games.
However, to maintain your VIP status, you must ensure that you meet the minimum monthly wagering requirements of £100 for Expert, £1,000 for Pro, £5,000 for VIP, and £20,000 for Legend.
The Trophies system works independently of the VIP programme, and lets you earn free spins on the Mega Reel by completing tasks to gain new levels.
