Slots Empire Casino Review & Bonus Codes
Launched in 2019, Slots Empire is a new online casino for US players, sister to previously launched Red Dog casino. As a newcomer to the scene, the operator does not have any prior experience. But as a casino that accepts players from all over the world, it shows a great deal of promise!
While it caters to gamblers from many countries, that does have its downsides. Namely, there are only two software providers present on the website. All live dealer games are powered by Visionary iGaming, while slots, table games and all others are provided by Real Time Gaming (RTG). Not a fantastic offering, but at least you know what you’re getting into.
The people who operate the casino seem to be big on immersion. Not only does the website look gorgeous, but the language they use is consistent throughout. The front page plays along with the idea of the player being a Legion commander within the slots empire. It has a sleek and easy to use design, which was clearly designed for touch screens first. However, desktop users will find it quite easy to use with a mouse or trackpad.
Slots Empire Bonuses & Promotions
There are promotions available for both new and existing gamblers. While we cannot claim these to be the most exciting bonuses we have come across, they get the job done. Depending on what deposit method you chose, your minimum deposit may be more expensive.
For the Welcome bonus, you are treated to a 220% promotion offer, with an extra 20% for Neosurf and BTC deposits. Your minimum deposit is also only $10 for Neosurf and $20 for Bitcoin. In contrast, depositing with a credit card means you have to pay at least $30 to be eligible.
Your maximum allowed bet is $10 per spin and you have a cashout limit of 30x the deposit. You have to meet the 35x the deposit + bonus amount wagering requirement before the winnings convert into real money.
The 24/7 Bonus is a less powerful version of the welcome promotion but is constantly available. It grants a 100% bonus for $30, 120% for $75, or 150% for $150. The remaining terms and conditions are identical to the welcome offer.
Slots Empire also has its Game of the Month bonus. As the name implies, a different title is chosen each month. Since the chosen game and terms change each month, we cannot go into further detail.
No Deposit Bonus
Special launching offer that you can enjoy these days: $20 no deposit to try Slots Empire. Use code: GRATIS20
Free Spins Bonus
Another offer for those of you that are fast to act: 25 Free Spins on Secret Jungle slot. Use code: JUNGLE25 . Please see that you can’t use both free bonuses listed here, but need to choose one of them – Free Chip or the Free Spins.
Software & Games
We were somewhat surprised to see that the casino also offers a desktop client that you can download. Of course, you can still play directly from the website, regardless of what platform you choose.
There are a total of 207 available games, all by RTG or Visionary iGaming. The majority of available titles are video slots – 120 in total. That leaves a total of 86 games in other categories, which has pleasantly surprised us. Most operators will charge head-first into slots and leave other titles by the wayside, but Slots Empire gives you options. As long as those options include RTG, that is!
As you might imagine, having only one developer and 120 slots can get boring rather quickly. Having only one software provider places the casino at a major disadvantage. Since Slots Empire accepts players from Europe, the US and Australia, it needs to expand the number of offered games. There’s no reason to punish European gamblers due to region restrictions in the other two countries. The vast majority of titles also allow you to try a demo version before committing real money.
There are a total of 6 progressive jackpot games, of which three are video slots. The other three include a pair of poker titles and Let ‘Em Ride, which feels similar to blackjack. The progressive jackpot amount is displayed beneath the name of each game. Unsurprisingly, there are no demo versions for progressive jackpot titles. You will have to go off-site to read a review or play with actual money and hope for the best.
There are a total of 15 table games available in the lobby. There is a decent variety of games here, but only one of each type. The most popular ones, like Blackjack, European Blackjack, Baccarat and poker all make an appearance. You can also enjoy a round of Pontoon, Pai Gow Poker and Vegas Three Card Rummy, among other releases.
There’s a separate lobby for live games, which feels a bit weird until you get used to it. You have a total of 9 games on offer here. These include three blackjack, two roulette, two baccarat, and two Super 6 tables. Most tables also have multiple limits, so casual and high rollers aren’t locked to the same boards.
While there are a few specialty games, there’s nothing particularly amazing there. You have familiar offerings like Craps and Keno, and also some RTG specific goodies like Banana Jones and Fish Catch. Where Slots Empire truly excels is in its video poker section. Or so it seems at first glance. However, each title has one hand, three hands, 10 hands or 52 hands versions available for play.
Many casinos will usually hide available deposit and payment methods. Even when they do add them in the FAQ, all the details are usually hidden in the T&C. Slots Empire wins our respect by placing all the information in a separate, easy to find tab. You know exactly what you’re getting into when you register.
If you use Neosurf, your minimum deposit is only $10. Meanwhile, with Bitcoin you have to deposit at least $20 or $30 if you use Visa or MasterCard credit cards. Supported currencies include Aussie dollars, US dollars and Euros.
The minimum amount you can withdraw is $150, which is too steep for our liking. Your maximum withdrawal is capped to $2,500 per transaction, which can be increased depending on your Customer level or an agreement with your VIP host. Bitcoin is the fastest one with a waiting time between 1 and 3 business days. Credit cards must wait 3 to 4 working days, while bank wire withdrawals have to wait 5 business days before funds are made available. In general it’s pretty good for US market, although there are some USA casinos with faster withdrawals.
We thoroughly looked through the T&C, but we found no mentions of fees for inactive accounts.
The operator goes out of their way to highlight their commitment to player security. All information is protected using 256-bit SSL encryption, fraud prevention systems and anti-viral suites. Available payment methods are quite limited in scope. Personally, we would have liked to see more region-specific options, but those can be added over time.
Slots Empire is a good example of why you shouldn’t pick the shiniest toy at the store. When we first started, the casino looked fantastic. We like the attempts at immersing the gamblers into a story and the great visuals that come with it. The lobby also allows you to sort by game type, which is a great functionality.
The problems arise with small details. The number of available titles is too small for our liking. Within that number are several versions of a single game, which brings the actual number even lower. The operator also only offers RTG and Visionary iGaming releases. While it has high ambitions, we cannot recommend playing at Slots Empire until they add more games.
