Dove Slots Casino in a nutshell
Dove Slots is a ‘summer fresh’ (2016 anyway) casino site that’s brought to you by Jumpman Gaming. Jumpman are based in Guernsey, but they run with licences from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and the UK Gambling Commission.
If you’re an online bingo aficionado then you’ve probably played at a site hosted by Jumpman Gaming. They run a fair number of colourful and well-received bingo sites, including Viking Bingo, All Stars Bingo, BingoPort and Oh My Bingo. Dove Slots marks their first venture into online casinos, and more sites are to follow.
So, will it be a case of ‘dove at first site’ with Dove Slots, or will you quickly fall out of dove here? Read on to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Dove Slots Casino?
Dove Slots is a very friendly-looking and colourful site, It might be a little too simplistic for some tastes, but at least it gets the job done. The aim it seems here is to introduce players used to bingo sites to the online world of casino games.
One issue we have – all games are lumped in together. We would much prefer it if casino games at least had their own section away from the slots. Not everyone loves slots, but then non-slot lovers might not be visiting a site called ‘Dove Slots’ anyway!
What games are available at Dove Slots Casino?
You won’t be too surprised to learn that Dove Slots is mostly about online slots games. You’ll find plenty of the very best slots here, including titles made by top providers like NetEnt, Microgaming and NYX/NextGen Gaming. This means you can easily enjoy some really great games such as Fluffy Favourites, Piggy Payout and Guns n’ Roses.
Away from slots you can enjoy blackjack, roulette, casino poker, keno and video poker. No craps or sic bo here.
There are no live casino games either.
Software here is provided by NetEnt, Microgaming, NYX/NextGen Gaming and PariPlay.
There’s a mobile version of this site so you can play all your favourite games while ‘on the go’.
No live casino games here, and no live support, although you can get in touch with the casino via Facebook Messenger.
What promotions are available at Dove Slots Casino?
There’s a lovey-dovey welcome offer available at Dove Slots. You can grab up to £200 worth of free play, as well as twenty free spins on the slot Fish & Chips. What’s more, you can grab the same bonus on your second and third deposits as well, making a total of £600 in welcome bonuses, and sixty free spins.
The minimum amount you need to deposit to earn a bonus and your free spins each time is £10. Your free spins can only be used on slots as dictated by Dove Slots, and any winnings are converted into bonus money.
Wagering requirements are pretty steep – sixty five times the amount of any bonus money you are attempting to convert. Once you have completed all wagering requirements, any bonus money remaining is converted into real cash.
You cannot use blackjack, roulette, casino games, hi-lo games, video poker, keno or any progressive jackpot slots to help meet your wagering requirements. If you attempt to make a withdrawal before wagering is complete, then your bonus balance is reset to zero.
This welcome promotion is the only promotion available at Dove Bingo at the time of this review.
The site does run a VIP scheme, split over five levels – from newbie to legend. You progress throughout the levels by obtaining kudos at the site, and you earn one kudos for every £1 you deposit. To reach legend (legendary?) status you need to earn 5,000 kudos, and then to maintain your status you need to wager at least £20,000 per month. Top level VIPs receive a birthday bonus, ten percent cash back and fifty free spins. There are benefits for VIPs at all levels, though.
If you like the ease of using eWallets to fund your gaming then bad news – Dove Slots does not accept them. The only non-traditional payment provider it accepts is the eVoucher scheme Paysafecard. You can use Visa or Mastercard credit or debit cards as well. The minimum accepted deposit is ten pounds, while the limits are £5,000 (daily), £10,000 (weekly) and £20,000 (monthly).
The minimum acceptable withdrawal is £30, which we think is a little too much. You are only allowed a maximum of two withdrawals a day, but we can’t see that being too much of an issue fo anyone. You can only withdraw to cards. Maximum withdrawals are £1,000 per day, £3,000 per week or £5,000 per month.
Deposits are processed instantly, but withdrawals can take as long as five days.
We have to say that we were impressed by the clarity of Dove Slots’ payment information pages.
The final verdict
We’re seeing more and more of a blurring between the lines of the different gaming niches. Sportsbooks now also offer casinos, bingo sites offer poker games, and so on. Jumpman Gaming are the latest to follow this trend, following the success of their many bingo sites.
It seems to have been a largely painless transition. Our only quibbles are the 65x wagering requirements and the £30 minimum withdrawal limit, both of which we consider to be too high. Other than that, this colourful and fiesty Dove Slots casino site comes warmly recommended.
