What we recommend instead
The limited selection of games, lack of table games and loyalty programme, and absence of any special offers bar the welcome bonus are disappointing for such a new site. However, the wager-free free spins first deposit offer are worth taking advantage of if you’re interested in finding out more about Volt Casino.
Design & Usability
For an online casino that serves two purposes (N.B., as both an online casino and an online sports betting website), it’s impressive that there’s not an overwhelming amount of information and navigation menus on the homepage.
The site’s simple design makes it effortless to move between the different areas of the casino such as the Cashier, Promotions, Casino, and Sports Bets, and you can see at a glance what the welcome offer consists of as well as the latest additions to the games lobby thanks to the scrolling advertising banner near the top of the page.
The brand logo is basic, and uses a green bolt of lightning, but most of the banners feature more impressive themed graphics such as images of lightning storms.
The games lobby appears on the homepage, so there’s no need to sign-up before you can see what’s on offer. A list of recent winners appears down the right-hand side, and there’s an easy-to-spot live chat button at the bottom of every page.
Software & Gameplay
Volt Casino runs on proprietary software which primarily includes Wazdan and Beefee titles. The lobby displays the choice of games via large thumbnails, each of which gives you the option to play for fun or play with real cash. We also like that you can see the volatility of each slot as well as read an overview of each game.
The game window launches separately to the casino site, and makes it easy to change games at any point or switch from fun mode to real-money mode and vice versa.
Safety & Security
Volt Casino is dually licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority. The website uses an SSL certificate and a Random Number Generator, and there’s plenty of information available on fair gaming, security, game payouts, and responsible gaming.
Payments & Withdrawals
The banking options include Skrill, Visa, Neteller, Paysafecard, and MasterCard which is an acceptable choice, but it would be nice to see more payment methods such as Paypal and Entropay added. Also, you can only play in Euros.
The minimum and maximum deposit amounts are €20 and €5,000 respectively. The minimum amount that you can cash-out seems overly high at €50, and the withdrawal processing times are rather vague with only times for bank transfers mentioned in the terms and conditions (N.B., five to ten business days).
The support hours are not listed, but live chat seems to be available on most visits to the casino. You can also get in touch using the online contact form or ring the telephone number that’s listed on the “Contact Us” page.
Bonuses & Promotions
Somewhat disappointingly, there only seems to be one special offer listed on the Promotions page, and that’s the welcome bonus. Rather than offering you a fixed bonus amount or percentage with your first qualifying deposit, Volt Casino gives you five free spins for every £5 deposited provided you add at least £20 to your account. One thing that makes this offer so appealing is the fact that it comes with zero wagering requirements.
We were unable to find any section of the website that talks about playing on mobile devices, and no apps appear in the GooglePlay or iTunes Store. But, if you login to your account via your mobile web browser, you’ll find an almost identical selection of games to choose from.
Variety & Originality
Of the roughly 250 titles that are available to play at Volt Casino, most of them are online slots by lesser-known suppliers like Wazdan and Beefee. Popular games include Magic Fruit 4 Deluxe, Burning Reels, Fenix Play 27, Ancient Secrets, Magic Queens, Jack on Hold, Colin the Cat, In the Forest, Captain Shark, Stunning Snow, Haunted Hospital, Bars & 7s, Joker Spin, and Rome Warrior.
It’s a shame that there are no jackpot slots, but it’s even worse that the Casino Games section of the lobby contains just one title – Casino Roulette.
Loyalty & Rewards
Currently, there is no VIP programme or loyalty scheme available – a fact which we really hope will change as the next few months go by.
