Whirlwind Slots verdict

With a welcome offer of up to £500 and an additional 100 spins available when you register yourself on the site, Whirlwind Slots looks good. But can it maintain its positive first impression once we take a closer look? Have a read of the review to find out!

design & Usability

The homepage design for Whirlwind Slots really is a whirlwind, with pictures, banners and brightly-coloured boxes covering your screen. Bold orange and blue colours stand out, used to differentiate between games and promotional categories, a brave but vibrant look. The top header lets you log in or register in one simple step, with the cartoon whirlwind logo on the top left used as a link back to the main lobby and homepage, available anywhere on the site.

Like all the best slot sites, there is a constant scrolling banner, advertising the latest offers, deals and games to catch your eye. Overall, the site is easy to navigate around, and although it doesn’t do anything spectacular, it certainly looks good and runs well.

customer Support

FAQ’s are listed in the support section (link on the top right-hand side of the site) and are fairly detailed. They cover all manner of typical queries, including information on account and personal details, payment methods, withdrawal times, games, bonuses and winnings.

If you can’t find the answer to your question within the FAQ’s, there are plenty of different contact methods to choose from. Provided on the support page is a phone number you can call during daytime hours, as well as an email address and a live chat service with relatively quick replies from their internal support team.

bonuses & Promotions

Up to £500 welcome offer, plus 100 bonus spins on Cleopatra when you join as a new user, valid on your first three deposits. The minimum deposit is £10 with 4x conversion.  For Monday’s only there’s a 10% win boost of up to £50 when you deposit £10 or more, with 30x wagering requirements and 4x conversion. There is also up to 150 free spins on Aloha, which is currently one of the most popular games available.

To help with that midweek-slump, there’s a winning Wednesdays, which means if you deposit £10 or more but you don’t win a game, you can get 15% of your losses back each time. Whirlwind Slots also have original promotions which change throughout the year, so keep an eye out! Currently there’s a special prize draw for Baywatch players; for every £20 you stake on Baywatch, you will receive one entry ticket into the prize draw. This week, you'll have a chance to win up to £1000 cash. Even if you don't come 1st, there will still be plenty of cash and spins prizes available.

software & Gameplay

There is a good selection of game providers (18 in total), which all run on a quick network. There is a clear area for new games, which is regularly updated and currently includes White Rabbit, Route 777, Snow Leopard and Ocean Magic. It’s good to see that the platform is constantly updating and adding to its collection, obviously keen to keep their site fresh!

device Compatibility

Whirlwind Slots advertises themselves as the home of great casino and slots games for your mobile, tablet and desktop. Despite this, they don’t have a specific mobile app available for download on iPhone or android phones, which is a shame. Additionally there doesn’t seem to be a downloadable platform for more portable devices at all, in fact, there is no clear information about device compatibility anywhere on the website.  If you were looking to use a smaller device to play slots, you can open your browser to play the games as you would on the desktop, with the standard of play just as good.

safety & Security

As specified in the FAQ’s, the site follows an industry-wide best practice to keep your account safe, by using the strictest processes to ensure that your details are stored securely. They have implemented strict data protection and storage policies as regulated by the Government of Gibraltar, these policies also meet UK and EU standards.

Meeting further safety concerns, all card transactions are processed by a global leader in online payments who provide a secure payments system. Any funds are held in a separate bank account to the company funds, so your money won’t ever be at risk from third party interference. They also support and encourage safe and responsible gambling in cooperation with GambleAware.

variety & Originality

Whirlwind Spins uses 18 different providers, like Nektan, Microgaming, NetEnt and Extreme Live Gaming, which does mean the content of the slots and games ranges nicely. Otherwise, the website is pretty standard and although the layout isn’t notably original or exciting, it looks good and functions as is necessary.

Depending on your own slot and game preferences, the selection caters for a number of different tastes. These include classic rooms, blockbuster film themes like Baywatch, some cartoon animal fun and more quirky subjects like Wild Antics and Kingdom of Wealth.

payments & Withdrawals

There are an excellent selection of payment options to choose from, including: Visa, Visa Electron, Maestro, MasterCard, NETeller, boku, PaySafeCard, Skrill and Trustly. Although PayPal is missing from this list, the withdrawal times are quick and efficient. Minimum withdrawal amount is £20, with transactions made using debit or credit cards averagely taking between three and five working days to clear. You can make one withdrawal every 24 hours.

VIP Programme

The VIP programme is called privileged and is an exclusive offer by email invite only. Being a member entitles you to cashback offers, weekly bonuses, deposit rewards and free spins. The website keeps the details of this exclusive programme under wraps, and doesn’t use loyalty points or a tier system to work your way up. This means that if you’re a regular user, you might find you don’t receive that VIP treatment you could be offered elsewhere, rather than waiting for an email invitation.   

conclusion

Whirlwind Slots is a consistently good and enjoyable platform for slots players. It continually meets the needs of the user, providing a multitude of original and fun games, without compromising on safety, security, or design quality. Although we can’t promise it will beat outstanding competitor sites on the market, we can assure you of safety and a pleasant experience.
