Jackpot Mobile Casino in a nutshell
Jackpot Mobile Casino is an online casino brand that’s been hammered into existence by Nektan (Gibraltar) Ltd. Don’t be fooled by the name of this casino – while originally designed especially for mobile platforms, the casino has recently made some changes that enables players to enjoy its gambling goodness on desktop and laptop computers too.
Nektan are fast making a name for themselves in the online gambling arena. They are doing this by creating a number of highly thought-of online casinos where the emphasis is on players who prefer to play ‘on the move’. Having said that, Nektan’s casinos do come in for criticism – namely the lack of games offered beyond slots. Let’s see if Jackpot Mobile Casino falls into this trap.
So, will you be enjoying jackpots – mobile or otherwise – when you play at Jackpot Mobile Casino? You’d better keep on reading if you want to find out!
What’s the look and feel of Jackpot Mobile Casino?
Jackpot Mobile Casino is basically identical to any other Nektan-powered casino. There’s a landing page and mini-site which, as we have outlined above, simply links you through to the Nektan white label solution that’s been painted with Jackpot Mobile Casino’s branding. It’s hardly the best online casino experience in the world, and it pales in comparison to the efforts that some other online casinos make.
What games are available at Jackpot Mobile Casino?
Now we come to the typical bug-bear of a Nektan-powered casino – the games. If you like slots, then it’s no problem at all. The site has online slots games from two of the best names in the business – NetEnt and NextGen Gaming. That means you get to play some real classics, such as Amazon Queen, Aloha! Cluster Pays, and Fantasini: Master of Mystery.
However, click on the ‘casino’ section and it’s a different story altogether. You’re presented with three options: baccarat, blackjack and roulette. Click on any of them and you just get fed through to a different URL, and you’re no closer to playing any casino game. This is a real design flaw that needs attending to. Anyhow, suffice it to say that the only casino games you can actually play at Jackpot Mobile Casino are roulette and blackjack. There’s no baccarat, video poker, casino poker or craps.
The same thing happens if you click on any of the scratch cards. We do know though that all Nektan-powered sites have nine scratch cards available.
There’s no live casino here.
Software here is provided by NetEnt and NextGen Gaming.
There’s no live casino here, and no live support either.
The casino does look great on mobile devices though – particularly tablets.
What promotions are available at Jackpot Mobile Casino?
First up at Jackpot Mobile Casino there’s a ‘free’ five pound note available. We say ‘free’ as you do not have to make a deposit in order to receive this cash. However, you can only use it on slot games at the casino, and to cash out any winnings you make from it, you must wager £500 first. That seems a pretty tight order just to receive a free fiver, but at least you get to experience some of the games that this casino has to offer.
You can also claim bonuses on your first three deposits at this casino, as follows:
- 1st deposit: 200% matched bonus up to £50
- 2nd deposit: 100% matched bonus up to £200
- 3rd deposit: 50% matched bonus up to £250
These bonuses are open to new players only. You need to make a deposit of at least £10 each time in order to receive a bonus. In order to cash out your bonus and any winnings you may make from it, you need to wager the total amount of your bonus and deposit thirty times over. You can only use slots to meet your wagering requirements, and the maximum amount you can win from your bonus is four times the bonus amount.
There are three other regular bonuses you can take advantage of at Jackpot Mobile Casino. Every Tuesday you can earn a one hundred percent bonus between £10 and £25, and you can grab ten bonus spins on Starburst every Friday if you make a deposit of at least £10. There was also a special deal at the time of this review on NetEnt’s fiesta of a slot, Spiñata Grande. You could grab a bonus of between £10 and £100 for use on this game alone.
Jackpot Mobile Casino allows you access to Nektan’s VIP scheme, which is called ‘Privileged’. Unfortuantely Nektan do not accept any old soul to the VIP table – membership is via invitation only. It must be worth it though, as VIPs receive dedicated personal VIP managers, exclusive email and customer support, welcome bonuses, monthly cashback, special weekly bonues, events and promotions, and exclusive prize draws.
The minimum accepted deposit at Jackpot Mobile Casino is £10, and you can use a Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card to make your payment, or a number of eWallet solutions – Paysafecard, Skrill or Neteller (PayPal is in ‘coming soon’ status). You can also pay using your mobile phone bill, unless you have a PAYG account. The maximum accepted deposits are £10,000 per day (eWallets) and £2,500 per day (cards).
You can withdraw to most of the same methods. The minimum accepted withdrawal is £10, and the maximum is £20,000 per week (cards) or £10,000 per day (eWallets). The casino says that it will honour all withdrawals within two to three working days.
The final verdict
We’re becoming very accustomed to Nektan-powered casinos now. With over twenty casinos in their portfolio, they are becoming as ubiquitous to online casinos as Cassava are to bingo sites. It’s all right having twenty online casinos, but what’s the point if they are all virtually identical to one another?
The big headaches when it comes to Nektan are the lack of casino games, having no live support, and having no live casino options. Until Nektan can make those improvements, sites such as Jackpot Mobile Casino will remain very much on the online casino second tier.
