Sapphire Rooms Casino in a nutshell
Sapphire Rooms is a simple, mobile-friendly casino from Nektan Casinos. Nektan themselves are based in Gibraltar, whilst Sapphire Rooms runs under licences from Gibraltar and the UK Gambling Commission.
Nektan run eight other mobile casinos, as well as contributing software to both William Hill Vegas and LeoVegas.
Sapphire Rooms is powered primarily by Nektan’s bespoke software. It also has popular slots such as Merlin’s Millions and Foxin’ Wins courtesy of NextGen Gaming.
Gambling ‘on the go’ is becoming more and more popular with each day that passes. Sapphire Rooms runs on your desktop, but has been definitely designed with mobile users in mind. Is it a decent place to play, mobile or otherwise? Read on to find out.
What’s the look and feel of Sapphire Rooms Casino?
Sapphire Rooms does look good on mobile. The colour scheme is a mix of light blues and dark blues, which ought to places football supporters who name Coventry City or Forfar Athletic as the team they’d die for!
The site work in an identical fashion on desktops. The games work well and the site loads at sufficient speed.
Before each game loads you’re asked if you want to play with sound or not, which is cool if you want to gamble without disturbing anyone else.
What games are available at Sapphire Rooms Casino?
It’s virtually slots all the way in the Sapphire Rooms – and mobile versions of slots even on the desktop site. There’s not a great deal of volume here – indeed there are only forty games available.
All the best slots at the site are provided by NextGen Gaming. We’d recommend Foxin’ Wins (and Foxin’ Wins Again), Medusa and Merlin’s Millions.
Beyond slots you have one version of blackjack, one version of roulette, a few scratch cards and a couple of arcade-style games.
There’s no live casino here, nor video poker.
The only software providers here are Nektan themselves, and NextGen Gaming.
There’s no live support. As mentioned previously, the site is optimised for mobiles and tablets.
What promotions are available at Sapphire Rooms Casino?
As soon as you walk into the Sapphire Rooms you’re presented with a two hundred percent welcome bonus up to a maximum of £50. This is part of a three-tier welcome bonus spread over your first three deposits:
- 1st deposit – 200% up to £50
- 2nd deposit – 100% up to £200
- 3rd deposit – 50% up to £250
The wagering conditions are pretty standard – 30x the value of your bonus and your deposit, and the minimum amount you need to deposit in order to be eligible for a bonus is £10. Your wagering requirements must be cleared within 28 days, and the maximum amount you can win is four times the bonus value. Blackjack and roulette do not count towards wagering requirements.
There’s a VIP scheme at the Sapphire Rooms called ‘The VIP Circle’. This is for regular players, and includes bigger bonuses, exclusive offers, increased deposit limits and VIP-only events.
There are only three deposit/withdrawal methods: Credit/debit cards, Paysafecard (formerly Ukash) and Skrill. The minimum deposit is a mere £5, and the minimum withdrawal is a tenner. You can only make one withdrawal per day, up to a maximum of £10,000.
Withdrawals by Skrill usually take 24 hours, and credit/debit card 3-5 days. There is also a pending period of 72 hours for most withdrawal requests.
The final verdict
There’s not too much to say about the Sapphire Rooms Casino. It’s neither a stand-out mobile casino, nor one that we would warm you to steer well clear of. Perhaps if there were more than just over forty games, and if the wagering conditions attached to the no-deposit bonus weren’t so terrible, we’d be more enthusiastic.
We think it’s best you make your own mind up. Head to the Sapphire Rooms on your mobile device and experience a few of the games with your freebie fiver before you commit any of your own cash. Then tell us how you get on …
