When Welcome Slots first launched, it ran on Dragonfish software under the management of Cassava Enterprises/888, but it has recently changed platforms and now sits on the Jumpman Slots network. As a result, the VIP scheme and range of promotions have improved, but with so many brands now sharing the Jumpman Slots network, does Welcome Slots offer you anything above and beyond its myriad of sister sites?
Welcome Slots looks professionally designed, and we particularly like how the welcome offer is presented via the image of a young man grinning as he spins the Mega Reel bonus game on his mobile phone while the various prizes that are on offer float around him.
The white background helps the offers and game thumbnails to stand out while the concise menu system that runs horizontally across the top lets you visit the Welcome Slots blog, games lobby, promotions page, and trophies page.
If you scroll further down, you’ll find details of some of the most popular games at the casino, a flashing list of big winners, and a chatty introduction to Welcome Slots.
The support hours aren’t advertised, but from our knowledge of other Jumpman Slots brands, they are likely to be 9.30 AM to 5 PM from Monday to Friday. There’s no live chat or telephone support – just a messaging system and an email address.
If you’re truly stuck, we suggest that you check the FAQ page as it may help you solve issues surrounding bonuses, technical errors, and your account.
Welcome Slots has an introductory offer for new players which lets you spin the network-exclusive Mega Reel when you make your first deposit of at least £10. The biggest prizes that can be won through the Mega Reel are 500 free spins and a £10 Amazon voucher. However, many of the prizes are much smaller. The wagering requirements also require you to play through your winnings a lofty 65 times, and you can only convert up to £250 of bonus winnings into real cash.
Each time that you top up with £20 or more, you get to spin the Mega Reel again while deposits of £100 or more entitle you to a spin of the Turbo Reel.
Newbies can claim double cashback for 30 days after joining, and all players have the ability to collect trophies by completing tasks, with anyone who achieves 200 trophies receiving an Amazon voucher.
Jumpman Gaming’s bespoke software platform (Jumpman Slots) is used at Welcome Slots. The load times are minimal, and the user interface is designed so that both new and seasoned players can quickly move around between the different areas of the website.
Welcome Slots is a fully mobile-compatible site that allows you to play your favourite games on a smartphone or tablet from anywhere and at any time, without any issues. As there’s no need to download any software, all you need to do is login to the mobile casino and start playing.
The Random Number Generator software at Welcome Slots has been tested and approved by SQS, and the website is verified and secured by Godaddy.
Welcome Slots is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK Gambling Commission.
The games lobby at Welcome Slots is original in so far that it’s exclusive to Jumpman Gaming brands, but there are no site-exclusive games.
There are both 90-ball and 75-ball bingo rooms to play standard and jackpot games in, some of which are free-of-charge.
Despite the lack of table games and instant wins, there are plenty of online slots available from developers such as NetEnt, Pariplay, NextGen, Lightning Box Games, Eyecon, and Microgaming.
Some of the most popular games at the site are Mega Moolah, Lara Croft – Temples and Tombs, Aloha Cluster Pays, Fluffy Favourites, Irish Luck, Legends of Cleopatra, and Great Rhino.
You can use any of the following payment methods: Paypal, Paysafecard, Pay by Mobile, Visa, MasterCard, and Maestro.
You can deposit £10 minimum and withdraw £20 minimum, and it takes 72 working hours for withdrawal requests to be processed so you may wish to choose Paypal as you’ll get your funds quicker.
Every funded player is automatically accepted into the Welcome Slots VIP programme which works on a points basis. You receive 1 Kudos point for every £1 that you deposit, and as you need a lot of points to achieve higher VIP levels, it takes quite a bit of time to progress through the various tiers.
The VIP rewards consist of Mega Reel spins, birthday bonuses, and daily cashback.
While Welcome Slots looks welcoming enough, it fails to offer anything different to its sister sites. However, if you don’t mind the high bonus wagering requirements and don’t already play at other Jumpman Gaming sites, the strong library of online slot games and the offer of daily cashback may well appeal.
