Slots Gold Verdict
Slots Gold is a fun new slots site but it just doesn’t do anything to shine. This may be a good site to visit if you’re bonus hunting or want something a little more chilled out, or perhaps if you want a no-frills experience for your first online casino. The game selection won’t keep you hooked for long. The promotions can be interesting, but most of these are found on other Jumpman sites anyway. A pleasant but very standard online casino.
Design & Usability
Slots Gold is a very laid back site, with a big background image showing a set of cartoon tropical islands in a lovely blue sea. The background scrolls down to reveal treasure on the ocean floor. It’s a very simple and typical design, but it does look nice.
The site itself is easy to use, with your usual top navigation area, with quick links to site sections and your account. You can find anything else, like contacts, down on the site footer. All the pages of this site are very big and bold, which looks a little basic, but at least they’re easy to read. This is a no-frills site which you can’t really go wrong with, but also won’t wow anyone.
Software & Gameplay
The Slots Gold game section lists slots in tiles as usual, with a useful set of controls to sort them, but there are no categories to narrow the list down. You also have a search function.
The games load into a small window built into the page, so you’ll be playing with the site in the background. This does mean you have quick access to your account and lobby, but it’s distracting. There’s no option to go full-screen.
Safety & Security
Slots Gold is licensed by the Alderney Gambling Commission and UK Gambling Commission. Security is high here, as the site is protected by the recognised McAfee brand.
The site has a good responsible gaming area with controls for limiting your usage, plus the games are tested for fairness by the independent SQS group.
Payments & Withdrawals
Slots Gold lets you pay using Visa and MasterCard debit and credit cards, or you can use PayPal, PaySafeCard and mobile payments. It’s nice to see PayPal in the list, but more e-wallet would be great.
The cashier is built into the site and very simple to use, with a set of icons to follow. Withdrawals will take around the usual 3-5 working days for cards, but the minimum is very high at £30.
You can reach Slots Gold through live chat, email and whatsapp. A straight phone line might be preferable, but at least that’s something. The site also lacks an FAQ area.
Live chat will be your main contact method but unfortunately, both this and whatsapp close at 6pm, which is really quite disappointing for evening players. They are also closed on weekends.
Bonuses & Promotions
Slots Gold welcomes you with a 100% deposit bonus up to £200, but this comes with a very high wagering requirement of 65x! You can get the same offer on your second and third deposits, if you aren’t put off by the small print. These bonuses come with 20 free slot spins, too.
Otherwise, you actually have a nice variety of offers here. There’s Midnight Madness where the first 250 deposits after midnight on Tuesdays will be awarded with 20 free spins, or Mystery Thursdays with surprises like free spins when you log in. You’ll also see regular happy hours and some exclusive VIP promos.
Slots Gold does not offer a mobile help section or any apps. You can visit the site on your mobile, however, which should work for the majority of devices.
The mobile site works nicely at Slots Gold, but it is quite basic. The games load quickly and they have touch controls, so you can still play all your favourites. A simple, no-frills mobile site, just like the desktop site.
Variety & Originality
Slots Gold offers a fair mixture of developers, including the popular NetEnt with titles like Starburst (but not their full catalogue). You’ll also see Nyx with Foxin’ Wins, Eyecon with Enchanted Prince, PariPlay and Elk Studios games. There are over 200 titles and several classics, but some more big names would be nice.
There are only a handful of roulette and other table games here. You need to search for them to find them. There are no live dealer games, unfortunately. In short, the game selection here is pretty standard; not remarkable for any particular reason.
Loyalty & Rewards
Slots Gold has a standard five tier VIP system, though it does have some original artwork. You rise through the tiers simply by playing and earning loyalty points, called Kudos.
VIPS gain weekly cashback, free spins and birthday bonuses. The higher your rank, the more you gain. These are nice enough rewards but nothing spectacular, plus there’s no actual VIP luxury treatment.
