- Instant-play mobile casino
- Huge progressive jackpots
Since their founding just 2-3 years ago in 2015, Slots Cafe has managed to establish itself as one of the more popular UK gambling sites. Their commitment to variety and diversity in games selection (well over a dozen contributors) as well as running a smooth, integrated mobile site has done them huge favours.
But what about the rest of the casino? Let’s take a long look under the rug and see what we can find!
Slots Selection and Software
Whatever Slots Cafe may lack when it comes to regular promotions, it probably makes up for in its abundant and diverse supply of games. The primary casino software is by Netent, though there are a full 26 total providers – much more than we’re used to seeing at a slots-heavy casino.
The big slots from Netent include the likes of Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst, Twin Spin and Piggy Riches. Other notable appearances are Immortal Romance, Castle Builder II and Jurassic World. As you’d expect however, it’s not just the video slots making headlines at Slots Cafe…
Where there’s Netent and Microgaming, there is always a progressive jackpot or two to be found! Get ready for the likes of Mega Moolah, Major Millions, Hall of Gods, Lion Festival and Arabian Nights, all of which have been known to pay out well into the millions of pounds. The user interface is pretty good at Slots Cafe, allowing you to filter games by category (New, Slots, Jackpots, Live Casino etc) and by popularity, date, alphabetical order and by provider.
Table Games & Live Casino
There’s a full 13 different live casino options, including four roulette variations, blackjack, poker and baccarat. There’s also a live version of Dream Catcher, a fairly new style of game involving a huge prize wheel, like Wheel of Fortune. However, players bet on which colors/number they think the needle is going to stop on – naturally, you win by guessing correctly!
Their table games offer 20 different titles, from the traditional card and roulette games to more niche dice games. There’s no doubting that Slots Cafe favours the reels, but their commitment to live casino and table games is still impressive.
Slots Cafe is an instant play casino, meaning that all of their titles (slots, table games, live casino) can be played in-browser with absolutely no downloads. You may have to give permission for the games to run, but otherwise it’s totally hassle-free. The benefit of this, of course, is that you can hop on and play whenever you like, from any computer, without having to install extra software.
Rather than building a dedicated app – or worse, neglecting their mobile player base – Slots Cafe has chosen to create a website which is totally mobile-friendly. Whatever your device, simply visit the website as usual, log in and all of the playable games will be ready to go. Unusually, they have also provided a list of mobile available slots, rather than keep you guessing. Nice touch!
The Cafe offers support through both email and live chat, but doesn’t appear to provide a phone option. Unless yours is a more general enquiry, we’d always recommended using live chat – you’ll get your answers much more quickly!
Depositing is a very simple, fee-free process at Slots Cafe, with payment possible via e-wallets, prepaid cards and bank transfers.
Slots Cafe says that it can take them anywhere up to 48 hours to “accept” a withdrawal request – the processing time is presumably in addition to this. This means you’ll likely be looking at 2-3 days between making your request and the casino giving the all-clear. For those making the payment to an e-wallet, you should only be facing a number of hours (no more than a day) before the money reaches your account; payments to bank cards or accounts will likely have an extra 3-5 days (or 5-8 total) from making the request.
This is pretty slow by modern standards, but hardly a game-changer for an otherwise fine casino. There’s no listing of the maximum withdrawal amount, but customer support confirmed it was £5,000-a-week.
From the start, Slots Cafe’s responsive casino earns them a huge thumbs up. The games selection is as deep as any of their rivals, and the number of contributors surpasses them all. It’s a shame they don’t have any regular promotions, but hopefully this will be adjusted as the casino matures over the next few years.
All things considered, a pretty sharp casino!
