What we recommend instead
Wixstars Casino Verdict
Wixstars has a nice design, though the very modern site is marred somewhat by reliance on a clunky software lobby for certain activities. Still, it looks good and it’s easy to use, so Wixstars will appeal to first time players. The welcome bonus is good, but there aren’t any regular promotions or solid rewards that would make players hang around for a long time. Still, a big game selection makes it worth checking this site out.
Design & Usability
Wixstars makes use of all the artwork from the top NetEnt slots, like Jack and the Beanstalk and Gonzo’s Quest, to give the site a cartoony and friendly vibe. The artwork is mixed up a bit and given blue-toned backgrounds that match the site’s colours. The blue is offset by green, such as the Wixstars logo, which is a star. The aesthetic is nice and works well with the site’s modern design.
The site has clear navigation thanks to a large top bar with shortcuts to the various site sections, plus your usual account access. You can also see a language selector and help shortcuts here. Registration is pretty fast, using a series of panels, which also gives you the opportunity to set responsible gaming limits. The site is overall very nice looking and has a good flow.
Software & Gameplay
Confusingly, Wixstars has a lobby both on the main site and in a software pop-up that appears when you choose games, or sometimes just at login. On the main site, games are listed by tiles and have categories and search to help you find your favourites. The other lobby is much the same, but with links to support, chat and more, though it’s a little squashed-in.
The games load quickly and appear in a fairly large space. Instead of a background, you can see the page faded behind the slot. A bottom bar appears with cashier, sound and help links. It’s a pretty straightforward setup.
Safety & Security
Wixstars Casino has great security, with 128-bit SSL encryption provided by Comodo, which you can check through a certification on the site footer. The site’s responsible gaming page is also good, with options for account limiting and self-exclusion.
This site is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and Malta Gaming Authority. Fairness is guaranteed by a tested random number generator. You can read more about that on a dedicated page.
Payments & Withdrawals
There is a very basic cashier built in to the software lobby, which is a little bland and form-like but it does the job. There are no fees here. Withdrawals seem to process in 1 day (before the usual 3-5 days for transfer), which should mean they arrive in good time.
Wixstars accepts payments via Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Skrill and PaySafeCard, so it comes up a little short in that department.
You can reach Wixstars by email, telephone, fax and live chat. The chat and phone lines are open 8am to 1am CET, so it may not be ideal for UK players, but the team seem to be very welcoming and helpful.
There is also a help section on site, claiming that Wixstars believe in ‘CARE’ – Customers Are Really Everything. The help area is pretty useful, with FAQs, technical help, general site information and more.
Bonuses & Promotions
The welcome bonus at Wixstars Casino is pretty nice, a 100% deposit match up to £200. You’ll also get 20 free spins. You can optionally deposit £20 again for the next 2 days to get another 40 spins each day, making 100 in total. That seems like an offer most will skip. The bonus money has a wagering requirement of 35x before you can withdraw.
Bad news- that’s your lot for promotions. The site suggests that VIPs get more offers, but there are no daily, weekly or other offers going on here.
There are no apps for Wixstars, but if you head to the site’s mobile area you will see information about the alternative mobile view. You can also scan a QR code here to get a handy link.
The mobile casino site is good, having the same design scheme as the desktop site, with a slightly more compact style. Sliding menus are used to save space. The site’s lobby and games feel quite ‘zoomed in’ and so it’s easy to use taps to get around. It’s a smooth, user-friendly experience, but nothing special.
Variety & Originality
There’s plenty to play at Wixstars, which boasts hundreds of slots from a broad set of providers. These include Barcrest Games (Rainbow Riches), Microgaming (Avalon), NetEnt (Starburst), Realistic (Fireworks), Play n GO (Wild North) and more! Check out the new Bloopers by Elk Studios for a very chaotic game. The site only has two jackpot titles, unfortunately, but it does have a lot of scratchcards, if you like a casual game.
Casino games get a fairly good representation here, with Roulette Royal, Jacks or Better, bingo, several instant games and more on offer. You also have several Evolution Gaming live dealer games, which cover roulette, blackjack and more.
Loyalty & Rewards
There is a VIP Club at Wixstars, which has six tiers. You can reach the first few relatively easily by gaming points, but the top two are invitation only. The site mentions free games on Sunday for VIP members, with the amounts going up to 50 free games at the top. That isn’t much for a top tier VIP, so presumably there are hidden extras, but the site does not guarantee anything.
You can also redeem the points you earn for credit on site.
