Spin Hill is an online casino that joined the Jumpman Slots network just before Christmas 2018. Like its fellow sites, it offers an exclusive Mega Reel bonus game which has the potential to award both first-time and re-depositors with as many as 500 free spins. There are also networked promotions and a VIP scheme, plus a large lobby that’s filled with slots and a little bit more.
Keen to find out more, we grabbed our maps and set off in search of Spin Hill. Read on to find out what we discovered on our arrival.
Looking at the images of red double-decker buses, London Bridge and the Union Jack flag on the homepage, we assume that Jumpman Gaming wants us to think Spin Hill Casino is located in the nation’s capital.
The graphics that are used in the main ad banner are high quality, but the brand logo is a little fuzzy which makes it look slightly unprofessional. So, we’ve deducted one star.
The red-white-and-blue colour scheme fits nicely with the Union Jack flag, and as the background is mainly white, it makes it particularly easy to spot the key information and links.
We like the way that the main menu is kept small and simple (there are just three links in it), and when you minimise your browser window, it becomes a drop-down menu.
You can see an overview of the welcome offer plus two different links that allow you to sign up near the top of the homepage, and the list of featured slots gives you an idea of what’s in store. There’s also a well-written introduction to Spin Hill that covers everything from the accepted payment methods to how many games there are to choose from.
Unlike most Jumpman Slots’ casinos, Spin Hill doesn’t appear to have a live chat service, which means that the only ways to get in touch are by submitting a message via the contact form or sending an email. With a lack of telephone number, there’s no way to get instant assistance which we feel should be offered.
Spin Hill runs the same promotions as its sister sites, so you won’t find anything unique here.
The welcome offer gives you a free spin on the Mega Reel when you make your first deposit of £10, and again each time that you top-up your account with £20 or more. Although you can win Amazon vouchers and up to 500 free spins – winning a prize isn’t guaranteed, and there are also very high (65x) wagering requirements tied to any free spins that you win.
Newbies get 1% cashback for their first month, even if they make it make it to a higher level of the VIP scheme during that time. VIPs can play for a free pizza e-voucher every week, and every funded member can collect small rewards through the Trophies system. Collect 200 trophies and you get a £10 Amazon voucher.
Spin Hill Casino uses the same software as its operator – Jumpman Gaming – and it’s relatively reliable and certainly easy to use. The cashier lets you enter your preferred deposit and withdrawal amounts or click on pre-defined amounts to make things quicker.
None of the Jumpman Slots’ casinos offer mobile apps as the sites have been designed to automatically adapt to mobile devices.
The same range of games are available and the layout looks pretty much identical to the desktop version.
Spin Hill is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, and includes information relating to the responsible gambling, fair play, and security in both the FAQ and the website’s footer.
The selection of games at Spin Hill is exclusive to the operator, Jumpman Gaming, but can also be found at Jumpman’s online casinos and bingo sites, and there are no in-house games.
That said, the range of slots is quite remarkable, with everything from Bonanza, Fluffy Favourites, Wish Upon a Jackpot, Chill Heat, The Great Albini, and Diamond Strike to 3 Genie Wishes, Rainbow Riches, 88 Fortunes, Great Rhino, Shaman’s Dream, and Aloha Cluster Pays to choose from.
There are also a few video poker titles and casino games such as Blackjack and European Roulette, although they’re hard to locate as they’re not listed within their own categories in the games lobby.
In Spin Hill’s favour, there are four bingo rooms that you can play in too for as little as 1p per ticket, as well as a monthly £1k Pay Day Jackpot special.
You can make deposits to your Spin Hill account using Paypal, Paysafecard, MasterCard, Maestro, Visa, and Pay by Mobile, but there’s no Skrill, Neteller or Entropay as yet.
The cash-out process could be improved as currently, withdrawal requests are held in a 48-hour pending period before they are approved.
The VIP programme is a five-level system that operates on Kudos points, which are awarded on each deposit. Members can enjoy the likes of weekly cashback, birthday bonuses, and free spins, but there are no hospitality packages or VIP-exclusive promotions, bonuses and games on offer.
You also need to wager a fair amount to retain entry to the higher levels. For instance, Pros must deposit at least £1,000 per month while VIPs and Legends must wager a minimum of £5,000 and £20,000 per month respectively.
There are now around thirty casinos on the Jumpman Slots network, and to be honest, you could join any of them and you’d find the same games and promotions. However, if you’re in a patriotic mood, the London theme of Spin Hill Casino gives it an edge on its sister sites. Plus, if you prefer to play slots than casino games, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained at Spin Hill.
