What we recommend instead
Slots Animal Verdict
Slots Animal is nothing out of the ordinary – just another of many brands which are popping up on the Jumpman Slots network. The welcome offer is unlikely to appeal to any experienced player who reads the terms and conditions, and high wagering requirements also affect the majority of the casino’s remaining promotions. But, if you’re merely looking for a substantial collection of online slots that offer multiple winning opportunities to funded players, you may find value in becoming a member of Slots Animal.
Design & Usability
The Slots Animal website is a riot of colour. Gems from NetEnt’s popular Starburst slot and symbols from Aloha Cluster Pays appear among the many images of wild animals like tigers, gorillas, cobras, rhinos, and parrots.
Despite the eye-popping graphics, the site’s designer has managed to make the main menu stand out by displaying it in bright yellow, and it’s here that you can gain access to the casino’s main pages like Trophies, Promotions, and Games.
The welcome offer is clearly shown in the centre of the homepage, and it encourages new players to make their first deposit in return for a spin on the Mega Reel which has the potential to award up to 500 free spins and £10 Amazon vouchers.
Software & Gameplay
Slots Animal uses Jumpman Slots software, which is produced by online bingo and casino operator, Jumpman Gaming. While it’s rather basic in appearance, it’s user-friendly, and lets you view the choice of games via various filters.
Safety & Security
Slots Animal is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Commission. SSL encryption by McAfee ensures that your details and banking information are kept secure, and the games are audited for fairness by SQS.
Payments & Withdrawals
Skrill and Neteller are not accepted, but you can fund your account using Pay By Mobile, Paysafecard, Paypal, MasterCard, Visa or Maestro.
You can deposit £10 or more and withdraw £30 or more from your account on each transaction, but it can take some time to receive your winnings due to the verification checks and lengthy (N.B., up to five working days) withdrawal process.
As there’s no telephone support, you’ll have to use live chat or email to contact the customer services team, who are only available from Monday to Friday between 9.30 AM and 6 PM. We find this rather disappointing for anyone who holds down a traditional 9-5 weekday job.
Bonuses & Promotions
Slots Animal offers no unique promotions, but uses the standard special offers that are used at other brands on the Jumpman Slots network.
For new customers looking for a head start, there’s the welcome offer, which gives you one free spin of the Mega Reel when you make your first deposit of £10 or above. Redepositors also receive a Mega Reel spin, but in both cases, the terms and conditions point out that winning a prize is not guaranteed. Plus, if you succeed in scoring some free spins, you’ll need to play through your bonus a whopping sixty-five times before you can withdraw any winnings gained from it (N.B., up to a maximum of £250).
The 200 Club gives you the chance to win an Amazon voucher when you collect 200 trophies by completing certain tasks while you play. Then, there’s the Happy Hours promotion that lets you win free spins on Wednesday afternoons. The weekly Pizza Club competition rewards the top five highest wagerers with a pizza e-voucher, and cashback (which is awarded through the loyalty scheme) is double for new players during their first month.
The casino’s homepage mentions that you can play your favourite games on the go using a mobile phone or tablet. But, what it fails to explain is how players can go about it.
While our team is aware that Jumpman Slots’ casinos are designed to adapt to both big and small devices, we also know that some of the brands on the network offer mobile apps too. Sadly, Slots Animal is not one of them.
Variety & Originality
It would be better if the tabs in the lobby contained words rather than symbols to represent the different game categories as it’s quite hard to work out what’s what.
There’s an impressive selection of slots on offer, including Great Rhino, Claws vs Paws, Jade Butterfly, Exotic Cats, Fluffy Too, Irish Luck, Rainbow Riches Drops of Gold, Gonzo’s Quest, Temple of Isis, Bonanza, and Fortunium.
Plus, online bingo fans can enjoy a range of rooms which host penny, free, jackpot, and Fair and Square games.
In contrast with the slots, the table games, instant wins, and video poker games are few and far between. But, if you look hard enough, you’ll find titles like Blackjack, Casino Hold’em, Roulette, Joker Wild Double Up, Diamond Deal, and Spin Lotto.
Loyalty & Rewards
Although Slots Animal boasts a VIP scheme, the rewards aren’t all that impressive. For example, daily cashback, birthday bonuses, and free spins are on offer, but personal account managers, anniversary bonuses, invitations to hospitality events, and exclusive VIP promotions are not.
The programme features five tiers, and you gain promotion to the next level by collecting one Kudos point for every £1 deposited. But, beware. Even though you may rise to higher levels, you’ll be knocked back down again if you fail to meet the minimum monthly wagering requirement for your current level.
