Welcome Bonuses

Players, especially beginners, will quickly realise that welcome bonuses can change all of the time in the online gambilng industry with different online casinos competing to hook players into signing up, though for many, that is just the easy bit. However, there will be some players who are looking for a particular type of bonus. At Slots of Vegas though, new players can currently benefit from a 250% welcome offer where you can claim up to $2500 or a 190% bonus for up to $1900, which can be applied to games which have a slightly better house edge (chance of the player winning).

 

Software

It is one of the titans of the industry which take care of Slots of Vegas when it comes to software, in Real Time Gaming (RTG) who have been established and supplying the industry since 1998. As well as sterling slots and table games, the company has carved a reputation for providing great, enthralling graphics which really helps to ensure that players keep coming back to their slots, though it does come down to personal taste. Slots of Vegas has a considerable catalog of slots, in-keeping with the ‘Vegas theme, while there are also a huge amount of table games, including different forms of both blackjack and roulette, as well as craps, baccarat and many more. Where it does stand out perhaps, when compared to other competitors, is that it has a highly responsive video poker offering for its players as well.

 

Progressive Jackpots

Known to be by many one of the most attractive features of an online casino, a progressive jackpot can be exciting for players because it means that they can win huge amounts at any time on selected slots. Progressive jackpots can vary in prize winnings – anything from five to mid six figures depending on the brand and Slots of Vegas has a number of different ones that players can enjoy, although these do change on a regular basis. There are a number of types of progressive jackpots, the first one relating to a jackpot that could be won at random, when it goes over a certain amount of money, another that has to be won by a certain time, or another that can be won at any point in the day. This all adds to the intrigue and at Slots of Vegas, it is almost like being on the famous ‘Strip’!

 

Banking

At Slots of Vegas, banking plays an important role and due to this, there are a number of payment methods available for players to use. These include Visa, Mastercard (credit and debit for both), Discover, Bank Transfer, Paysafecard and the increasingly popular Bitcoin which has started to revolutionise the online gambling industry somewhat. With e-Wallets, withdrawals can be almost instant, while more conventional methods can take up to seven days to process.

 

Casino Mobile

Something which has become a major part of the way the online casino industry has been thought of in recent years, there has been a considerable increase in the amount of people using mobile devices to participate in online casino. This has meant, as such, that online casinos have had to make sure that their mobile sites can cater suitably and Slots of Vegas does a progressive job with this. While it may not be the best mobile casino out there, it has taken steps to make sure that its fans can at least access some of their slots and games, though it scores well for navigation. Still a bit clunky, though there is a good platform to build on.

 

User Interface

Glamorous looking colors make the user interface of Slots of Vegas exactly what it needs to look like, based on the brand; sexy, ultimately. How the slots respond are great on screen, particularly on desktop, while it is easy to navigate around the site. As such, every page that you land on has a consistent interface throughout, so you have to commend Slots of Vegas for that. Many online casinos often underestimate the user interface and the effect that this can have on new site visitors from a psychological standpoint and Slots of Vegas definitely does a good job here, with its warm first impression.

 

Customer Support

If it does everything else right, this can either make or break an online casino, because customer service and support can underpin everything that they do. How a customer is dealt with can determine whether they stay with the casino brand. Because of this, the front line staff at Slots of Vegas are highly trained and are available through a number of mediums. The Live Chat which is always available is very responsive, while an email address is also provided, though the typical waiting time can be anywhere up to 24 hours. They also have helpful FAQ articles at the bottom of their homepage, which are definitely worth reading first if you have a problem.

 

Conclusion

Overall a nicely presented online casino with a huge library of slots and games, as well as being really functional for the player. While the mobile casino could do with improvement, this is surely more of a question of when and not if. Definitely worth investigating!
