Amazon Slots has only been around for just under three years. Launched by the JumpMan Gaming Network, they are a young, vibrant, and growing casino.
They could put more work at Amazon Slots on breaking their slots into different categories. As it is it’s hard to search for exactly the game you want to find. That’s our biggest concern with Amazon Slots – that players will end up getting confused, not finding what they want and end up clicking over to another video slot machine provider.
Mobile gaming is in today – and will likely be popular for the near future. Amazon Slots figured this out and developed apps for iOS and Android devices. You can also simply log into Amazon Slots through your browser. Either way you can play all of the games Amazon Slots has to offer. There are no restrictions for mobile gaming – unlike other casinos.
As of today you cannot use Amazon Slots if you are from the United States. That said, legislation has been proposed that could, in the near future, allow Americans to play there. Time will tell. You also can’t play if you are from some major countries, so make sure to check the full list on the website before registering – you could get in trouble, even if you are on a VPN.
Bonanza Club opinion
Amazon Slots has great and interesting promotions including one that allows you to get free pizza. But their welcome bonus is a real downer. The amount of times you have to play through your money is ridiculous. You should probably decline the welcome offer – not something we typically recommend doing. But let’s be honest, it’s just not worth it.
Amazon Slots has a wide range of promotions. Some are for any and all customers who play on their site. Some are reserved for members of the Amazon Slots VIP club.
- Pizza Club – This is a weird one. Play slots on Monday. If you are one of the top five heaviest bettors, you’ll get a £15 voucher for pizza. And by heaviest we don’t mean weight, we mean big bets.
- Mystery Thursday – Make a deposit on Wednesday. Then on Thursday get your mystery gift. It’s usually going to be either free spins or matching funds.
- Happy Hour – Deposit some money on Monday. Then come back between 3pm and 7pm on Wednesday and get 10 free spins.
- Super Saturday – Make at least three deposits at Amazon Slots on Saturday and get 20 free spins on Sunday.
- Midnight Madness – If you are among the first 250 people to make a deposit after midnight on Tuesday, you will be awarded 20 free spins. Set those alarm clocks!
- Trophy Race – Amazon Slots will give you tasks to do within a limited period of time. Complete them and you’ll get trophies that can be converted into free spins.
- Care to Share – Did you score a decent win on Amazon Slots? Post it to their Facebook page, and you will be rewarded with 20 free spins.
Getting into the Amazon Slots VIP program isn’t difficult. Put a quid into the casino and you’ll get a Kudo. Get enough Kudos and you’ll end up moving through the VIP program. At the end of every month, the system resets so you’ll have to start again from the bottom. In this VIP program based on your bets at Amazon Slots, it ranges from 100 Kudos for being a Newbie, and goes all the way up to more than 5,000 Kudos, making you a Legend. And if you’re spending all that money in one month, you’d better be called a Legend!
Amazon Slots also has a ton of random and seasonal promotions going on at any given time. Just check out the promotions tab at Amazon Slots to find out what is going on at the moment.
Amazon Slots does sort of bait and switch with their welcome bonus. On each of your first three deposits you’ll get a 100% matching cash up to £200 each. You’ll also get 20 free spins for each of your deposits with Amazon Slots.
That sounds like a great deal. But there’s a catch. You have to bet the money through 130 times. Not industry standard is having to bet the money through 35 times. And there are some casinos that allow you to only play your matching funds through 20 times. So 130 times is a huge amount and includes your initial deposit.
Also the most you can withdraw is £500. And you can play progressive slots, blackjack or roulette with your matching funds.
Honestly, we feel like the best idea is just to deposit your money and when they ask you about the bonus offer, just tell Amazon Slots “no.”
If you tell them no, you can gamble using your deposited funds and withdraw it if you win. If you take them up on the offer, your own money – that you deposited – is also held in by the 130 times play through rule.
We don’t get why Amazon Slots has these rules – which are followed by nobody else at all in the industry.
Games and game providers
Amazon Slots does at least have a good selection of video slot machines. Their biggest provider is NetEnt but they also use a few other. You can play retro slots or go for one of the newer modern slots with free spins and mini games. There are a few progressive slots as well.
Or, players can take a seat at the tables and become an expert before they know it with a selection of games like Blackjack and European Roulette.
You can also try out the table games offered by Amazon Slots. They mostly focus on blackjack and variations of roulette. There is not as much variety here as there is with the slots, but there is enough to keep most people happy.
Where Amazon Slots fall short is that there is no Live Casino at all. We are hard pressed to think of another online casino without Live Casino features in some fashion. This may be because they want to focus on slots, or it could be something they are planning on incorporating into future updates. Time will tell, and we’ll check back with them and update this if their slot situation changes.
When depositing money at Amazon Slots you can use Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, direct bank transfer and the usual e-wallets.
There is quite a disconnect between their deposit limits and their withdrawal limits. You can put in up to £5,000 per day and up to £20,000 per month. But you can only withdraw £1,000 per day and £5,000 per month. Just imagine if you won a progressive jackpot of £1,000,000 how long it would take you to get your money.
Beyond that while their minimum initial deposit is only £10 you have to bet at least £100 before you can make any withdrawals at all. That doesn’t really inspire trust. What if you hit it big on your first spin? Would you still have to wait around and play another £100 before you could claim it?
While we love the wide selection of slots available at Amazon Slots, we really can’t recommend them. Their welcome bonus is above and beyond what any other casino asks for. Their withdrawal limits are ridiculous. There is no live casino.
We know Amazon Slots is new – but they have been around for three years and should have learned something by now. We look at Amazon Slots as someplace only very new punters who don’t know much about online gambling would go.
We give Amazon Slots a 5 out of 10 star rating. We don’t do that casually. We do it because we want people to be warned and to know what they are getting into before they sign up for a given online casino.
