Slots Magic in a nutshell
Slots Magic is slots-heavy casino site owned by the software company SkillOnNet. Until February 2014 it was known as Jackpot Party, and mainly featured WMS slots. The name change came about when the previous owners sold their site to SkillOnNet. Jackpot Party had been up and running since 2010.
With a gambling commission license to boot, Slots Magic seems to target UK-based players, although only US and French players are prohibited from playing here. First impressions are good: the homepage gives you ’99 reasons to play’, which is a nod to the 99 free spin offers spread across Starburst, South Park and Gonzo’s Quest slots.
So, are you likely to think that Slots Magic is truly magic, or will you simply end up wishing it would vanish in a puff of smoke? Read on to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Slots Magic?
Slots Magic looks very pretty with a black and purple theme, but it’s more than a bit messy. The site looks okay in full screen, but if you shrink your browser window, all mayhem breaks loose as menus appear on top of others. For a site that was redesigned in 2014, it looks very old-fashioned.
We also have a warning for Mac users. We opened this site a number of times in Firefox and each time it froze our MacBook! Opens fine in Chrome, though.
What games are available at Slots Magic?
You’d kind of expect a site called Slots Magic to be slots-heavy, and you wouldn’t be wrong. There are almost three hundred in total, and you’ll find some great titles such as Foxin’ Wins, Aliens and Twin Spin.
Slots Magic happily does not skimp on its table games. There are ten versions of roulette to enjoy, six versions of blackjack, two versions of baccarat and a version apiece of Caribbean poker, Casino Hold’em, Casino War, Let Then Ride, pai gow poker and craps.
There are four versions of video poker – Aces and Faces, Deuces Wild, Jacks or Better and Joker Poker – and each variety is available in single, 3-hands, 10-hands and 25-hands varieties.
There’s three ‘other’ games, namely The Big Wheel, Doubles Heaven and Hi Lo Cards, plus for live casino fans you can play ‘as live’ at baccarat, blackjack and roulette.
Those 300 slots have to come from somewhere of course. The main coup for Slots Magic came about in November 2014 when they signed up NetEnt to provide software titles at the site. NetEnt are responsible for some brilliant games, including the three classics mentioned in one of the free spins bonus offers.
The other providers at Slots Magic are SkillOnNet, WMS, Amaya and NextGen Gaming.
A number of the games at this casino are available on mobile.
What promotions are available at Slots Magic?
Slots Magic offers a truly stunning welcome package worth £2,000. We’re usually extremely wary of bonuses that run into the thousands, so we’re going to have to do some very detailed investigating here.
First up, this magical bonus offer comes attached to one of two possible free spins bonuses – either 100 free spins on Flip Flap, or 99 free spins on Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest and South Park : Reel Chaos. Flip Flap is a WMS slot that isn’t a lot of cop, so if you want our advice, sacrifice one free spin and go for the second option.
If you do go for the second option, you get 33 free spins on Starburst on joining, and 33 free spins apiece on Gonzo’s Quest and South Park : Reel Chaos once you’ve made your initial deposit.
Naturally, bonus T&Cs apply, and on the site, they take a bit of finding, and reading. In fact we’ve seldom seen such complicated bonus T&Cs, and they run to over forty different clauses. Before you consider joining this casino, we recommend that you read the T&Cs yourself … if you can stay awake, that is!
As far as we could make out, the main gist of these labyrinthine conditions are:
- Standard wagering requirements are 30x the bonus only
- The maximum you can win from a bonus is £100 or twice the bonus amount
- Only slots and scratch cards contribute towards wagering requirements
As we said, the T&Cs go on (and on, and on) for forty clauses, so you will really need to give them a good once over.
The £2,000 welcome bonus is split over your first four deposits as follows:
- 1st deposit : 100% up to £500. Code: WOW
- 2nd deposit : 50% up to £500. Code: SLOTSMAGIC2
- 3rd deposit : 50% up to £500. Code: SLOTSMAGIC3
- 4th deposit : 50% up to £500. Code: SLOTSMAGIC4
Standard bonus T&Cs for Slots Magic apply to deposit bonuses as well. The minimum deposit you require for any bonus is £20, and you have thirty days in which to meet your wagering requirements.
As of August 2015, RightCasino players can enjoy an exclusive welcome bonus package that includes a 100% up to £800 first deposit bonus and 50 free spins. Simply use the code RIGHTCASINO1 when depositing.
The site loves its promotions. In fact it runs two promotions every single day – just check out their promotions calendar.
Slots Magic also has a VIP scheme. It’s open to all members and promises cash-back on wagers, free bonuses and a dedicated VIP Account Manager.
You’re not likely to have any issues funding your account here. As well as Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, you can use plenty of popular eWallet solutions, including PayPal, Skrill and Neteller.
The payment section on the site is in dire need of an upgrade though. Skrill is still referred to as ‘Moneybookers’ and ecoPayz as ‘EcoCard’. Also, although PayPal is mentioned on the landing page, it hasn’t made it onto the Payment Options page. A bit slap-dash, we think.
There’s a minimum deposit and withdrawal limit of £20, and – sadly – a maximum withdrawal limit of £10,000 a month. Plenty of currencies are accepted at the site.
The final verdict
We love the number of slots games available at Slots Magic, and those welcome bonuses seem fine if you can get your head around all the T&Cs. Reading independent reports of Slots Magic it seems to suggest that players are very happy with things at this online casino.
Aside from the cluttered, Mac-crashing design, and those complex T&Cs we didn’t find much to criticise Slots Magic for. It’s a cheerful, bonus-happy casino with lots of cashier options – including PayPal. It’s no illusion, this could very well be the right casino for you!
