Since Jumpman Gaming launched its exclusive Jumpman Slots network back in 2016, there’s been an abundance of new brands entering the market, and Olive Casino is the latest one.
Like its sister sites, Olive Casino is focused on online slots, and there are plenty of them. It also runs network-exclusive promotions and a VIP scheme encouraging players to earn “trophies” to help raise their VIP level and win free spins.
Many big-name software houses’ games can be found at the site, including NetEnt, Microgaming, Eyecon, NYX Interactive, and NextGen.
But, does Olive Casino have what it takes to become the Olive to your Popeye?
While many of the casinos on the Jumpman Slots network employ fun and brightly coloured graphics in a bid to stand out, Olive Casino has a classy, yet simple, gold and black colour scheme. The “O” in its logo looks like a ripe olive.
Information about the welcome bonus sits slap-bang in the middle of the homepage so that you can’t miss it, and we have to admit that the chance to win 500 free spins sounds incredibly attractive.
The menu is kept nice and brief and allows you to move between the casino’s main pages such as games, promotions, and the blog.
You can also see the latest winners thanks to the animated bar along the bottom of the website.
It appears that the only contact methods that are offered by Olive Casino are the online contact form and email, which doesn’t help anyone who’s in urgent need of assistance.
The same can be said for Olive’s sister sites, so we do hope that the operator will have a rethink and include live chat or at least telephone support in the near future.
It’s a shame that the promotions at Olive Casino are shared with all the other brands on the network as we feel that it would stand out better if there were some unique offers available. Still, you’ll only find these promotions on the Jumpman Slots network, so there’s an element of exclusivity.
The welcome offer comes in the form of a bonus game called the Mega Reel which contains a range of prize segments as well as non-winning segments. You could be lucky enough to score between five and 500 free spins for Fluffy Favourites or Starburst, or even bag yourself an Amazon voucher, but it’s also possible to win nothing at all.
The terms and conditions should definitely be read prior to claiming the offer as the 65x wagering requirements and other restrictions could catch you out otherwise.
As for the other promotions, there are four. Happy Hours entitles funded players to a free Mega Reel spin every Wednesday while deposits of £100 or more merit a spin on the Turbo Reel. Newbies have the opportunity to claim 1% daily cashback for their first month as a member instead of 0%, and there’s a £10 Amazon voucher up for grabs for everyone who earns 200 trophies.
Olive Casino is run on Jumpman Gaming software, and it’s very much focused on online slots rather than casino games. It’s nowhere near as snazzy or customisable as Playtech or Microgaming casino software, but it’s still user-friendly and responsive.
The casino software is designed so that it’s compatible with mobile devices, meaning there are no mobile apps. As far as we can tell, almost every major mobile browser (including Safari and Chrome) is supported.
Olive Casino is licensed and regulated for UK players by the UK Gambling Commission and by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission for customers outside of Great Britain. There’s detailed information available about responsible gaming, fair play, and security within the casino’s policies and FAQs.
At the last count, there were over 600 games to choose from, and the number is constantly increasing thanks to the operator’s commitment to securing the latest games.
As Jumpman Gaming also manages two online bingo networks, it’s possible to play in five different bingo rooms. There’s a monthly game which costs 50p per card that boasts a £1k prize pool, as well as many budget-friendly bingo games that can be played for 1p to 5p.
There are just two table games on offer (N.B., Blackjack and European Roulette) and zero live dealer games, which may come as a disappointment if you’re expecting to find an all-encompassing online casino.
However, there are a vast number of slots, scratch cards, and casual games, including Boss the Lotto, Mega Moolah, Fluffy Favourites, Irish Luck, Agent Jane Blonde Returns, Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Aloha Cluster Pays, and Bonanza.
Olive Casino caters for a modest assortment of payment methods, including PayPal, Visa, Maestro, MasterCard and Paysafecards, and it also allows you to make deposits using Pay by Mobile.
If there’s one frustration that we have with the withdrawal process, it’s that it places your request on hold (or “pending”) for 72 hours before being manually approved.
The five-tier VIP programme offers just three perks – daily cashback, free spins, and birthday bonuses – the amount of which increase as you gain higher levels. If you reach the top tier, you can take advantage of 10% daily cashback, but as the system is based on Kudos points (which are awarded at a rate of 1 Kudos per £1 deposited), it can take a lot of time and funds to rise through the ranks.
Olive Casino is unlikely to attract true online casino fans due to its lack of table games and a live casino. However, slots players should find an ample selection of popular slot games to enjoy.
