What we recommend instead
Mr Jack Vegas Verdict
Although it’s only the high-quality site design and the more-generous-than-usual welcome package that raises the profile of Mr Jack Vegas above other ProgressPlay brands, we still feel that if you’ve yet to try playing at a ProgressPlay online casino, you’ll adjust very nicely to life at Mr Jack Vegas.
Design & Usability
We have to give the site’s designers a round of applause for turning the standard ProgressPlay casino template into a veritable work of art. The brand logo uses a neon sign depicting a woman’s lips with her tongue poking out, and the background features the brightly-lit skyline of Las Vegas by night. Further down the homepage, there’s a picture of a row of slot machines in a land-based casino accompanied by an “Open” sign. It’s clear that a lot of hard work into making Mr Jack Vegas look as much fun as possible.
You can change the default language by clicking the relevant county flags down the right-hand side of the page, the Register, Login, and Promotions buttons are listed on the left.
Rather than providing viewers with a main menu that runs across the top of the screen, the different game categories are presented within a neon-pink billboard on the left.
A live chat launch button is accessible at the bottom of every page, and instead of the terms and conditions and various policies being hidden away in the website’s footer, they’re displayed in a clear and easy-to-spot list underneath the attractively presented welcome package advert.
Software & Gameplay
As well as acting as the operator of Mr Jack Vegas and all of the other sites under its remit, ProgressPlay manages the software that powers Mr Jack Vegas. It’s a nicely put together platform that allows the games to load and run impressively quickly on both mobiles and PCs, and it also allows you to demo games as well as play them with real cash.
Safety & Security
Mr Jack Vegas is jointly licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.
There’s detailed information available on the topics of safety and security. But, in a nutshell, you needn’t have any concerns about playing at this casino as it uses the latest SSL encryption technology. It also displays its RNG test certificate to prove that its games give fair and random outcomes.
Payments & Withdrawals
Almost all of the banking methods that we’d expect to find at a top-quality online casino are available at Mr Jack Vegas, including Paysafecard, Skrill, Neteller, Visa, Maestro, MasterCard, Fast Bank Transfer, and Pay by Phone, although we’d love to see Paypal added.
Withdrawals take up to three working days to be processed, which is an acceptable amount of time in our opinion.
You can deposit between £10 and £1,000 and withdraw between £20 and £3,000.
You can get help via live chat and email around-the-clock, seven days a week. In addition, there’s an FAQ that addresses queries regarding your account and the games.
Bonuses & Promotions
It’s refreshing to see that Mr Jack Vegas offers a more generous welcome package than many of its sister sites. Rather than allowing you to claim just one bonus, it offers you three, plus a healthy dose of free spins to boot.
On your first deposit of £10 or more, you can enjoy a 150% bonus of up to £150 plus 15 free spins on Butterfly Staxx;
On your second deposit of £10 or more, you can claim a 25% bonus of up to £300 and 30 free spins on Neon Staxx;
On your third deposit of £10 or more, you can get a 50% bonus of up to £500 plus 50 free spins on Starburst.
Sadly, the bonus wagering requirements are higher than you might expect. They require you to turnover your bonuses fifty times before can convert your winnings to your real cash balance.
Mr Jack’s other special offers are the standard ProgressPlay staples such as Twice Wicked, Weekly Surprise, Wednesday Wildfire, Live Dealer Weekend, and Weekend Roulette, which give you the chance to qualify for cashback, free spins, and weekly bonuses.
It would be good to see information on mobile compatibility included as a separate page or within the FAQs, because what potential players won’t necessarily know is that the technology that powers the site allows you to access your account from any compatible web browser. Therefore, you won’t find any mobile apps on offer.
Variety & Originality
As Mr Jack Vegas is part of a network of over 75 casinos that all offer the same games catalogue, we cannot call the selection of games original.
But, it’s certainly varied, and you can enjoy everything from live dealer games, video slots, and jackpot slots to table games and casual games, including Archangels Salvation, Bridesmaids, Cricket Star, Chilli Gold, Divine Fortune, 3D European Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat, Epic Gems and Pharaoh Bingo.
Loyalty & Rewards
The VIP Room comes courtesy of the casino’s operator, ProgressPlay.
It consists of five different levels, entry to which is based on loyalty points. You get one point for every £16 of real cash that you spend at Mr Jack Vegas.
The benefits for VIPs (some of which are only available at the higher levels) include a personal account manager, anniversary bonuses, VIP support, personalised gifts, and the opportunity to turn your comp points into cash to use on games.
The best thing about the scheme is that you automatically enter at the lowest level when you stake your first £1. The downside of it is that you need to wager £8k+, £16k+, £80k+, and £160k+ to gain promotion to the second, third, fourth and fifth VIP levels respectively.
