Let’s talk about Amazon Slots.
They’re one of the older, yet still relatively new casinos from Jumpman Gaming. We’ve reviewed a few of their sister brands already – Lucky Admiral, Big Rock and Big City Slots, just to name a few.
And just a heads-up – if you’ve already read one of those reviews, or, if you already have an account at one or more of those casinos, then there’s no reason to read this review.
This casino is a carbon copy. You either like them …or you don’t.
The following review is for people who have no clue, but do know they’re interested in finding a new casino to play at. We’ll do our best to help you figure out if Amazon Slots is that casino.
To do that we’ve researched Amazon Slots and have included information revolving around the following topics in the review:
Finally, we’ll wrap this review up with a recommendation – do you join Amazon Slots, or do you skip them for greener pastures? Or, is there a middle ground?
Interested in finding the answer? Then keep reading.
Amazon Slots launched in 2016. They’re one of many casinos (and bingo rooms) on the Jumpman Gaming network.
They’re still relatively new, so there’s not much information on the web about them.
I did find a few reviews written about them. However, most of these reviews are vague and thin – it’s clear they didn’t find much to say about Amazon Slots, either. But that didn’t stop them from giving Amazon Slots top marks.
That’s not to say they don’t deserve them – just that I find it difficult to give a casino top marks when there’s little information or feedback about them on the web.
I’ll bet this changes a little over the next year or so as more and more people check them out.
But until then, I recommend being cautious when playing here. Only play with a portion of your gaming bankroll (that you should be fully prepared to lose no matter where you play). Just until you know you can trust them.
Now, what I can tell you is that they’re a licensed casino. They’re licensed in two jurisdictions – one is the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), and the other is the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC).
You can see their license information at secure.gamblingcommission.gov.uk.
Not everyone will be able to join Amazon Slots. Players from the following countries are prohibited from creating an account here:
You can contact Amazon Slots Casino using one of the following methods:
Something that frustrated me during my review is not being able to quickly find the payment methods Amazon Slots accepts. You have to dig to find that info.
I managed to find the banking options they accept in their terms and conditions, along with their banking limits.
Let’s start with the payment methods they accept. You can use:
Their deposit limits are pretty reasonable. You can deposit as much as $5,000 per day, $10,000 per week and $20,000 per month.
I like how they accept PayPal. However, it’s a bit baffling that they don’t accept Neteller or Skrill – both of which are basically the same thing as PayPal. Yet, some people have accounts at one, but not at one of the others.
It’d be cool to see them add Skrill and/or Neteller in the near future.
Now, as far as cash outs are concerned –
You’re only able to use the same methods to cash out as you did to fund your account. The exception is Pay by Mobile – that’s not available for cash outs.
The minimum cash out is $30. The max you can cash out is $1,000 per day, $3,000 per week and $5,000 per month.
These limits are a big difference from their deposit limits. And they’re small for an international casino. But, worse yet, they apply to everyone, even progressive jackpot winners.
This is inconvenient, if not a little scary. Just think about how long a payout would take if you won something like $100,000 or $150,000. That’d be 20-30 months before you’re fully paid, never-mind what you may win in the meantime.
It’s scary because they’re a brand-new casino. And when you’ve been in the industry as long as we have, you know that new casinos don’t always last.
Amazon Slots has a few offers to claim. I have mixed feelings about them, but I’ll get to that. Let’s go over the details of each of their evergreen offers, starting with their welcome bonus.
Now, this offer sounds pretty good… until you get to their terms and conditions.
The playthrough on this offer is 65x the deposit AND bonus – or 130x total. Keep in mind this offer is for slots players only.
If you know anything about online casino bonuses, you know this is highway robbery. Most casino playthroughs are in the neighborhood of 30-80x total. So, this playthrough is anywhere from 50-400+ percent bigger.
This is ridiculous, and the reason why I suggest you skip this bonus.
But that’s not all. There are a couple other important terms for this offer:
Annnnnd… that’s their welcome bonus for new customers. They have a few offers for existing customers and VIP members, too. Let’s look at those next.
On top of this, they have an offer where the first person to accumulate 75 trophies will win $1,500. And keep in mind that’s on top of the 165 free spins you’ll get along the way.
Only ‘big wins’ of $100+ qualify.
Amazon Slots has a VIP program, too.
What’s different about theirs is that you receive 1 point – which they call a Kudos – for every $1 you deposit. This is different in that most casinos give you a point based on the dollar amount you wager (usually between $1-$10).
However, their points do the same exact thing – determine your VIP status. There are 5 tiers in this program. Here’s a chart showing each tier and the perks you get for reaching each one.
|Level||Weekly Cashback||Free Spins||Birthday Bonus||Kudos Req|
|Newbie||No||0||Yes||Up to 100 Kudos|
|Expert||1%||5||Yes||101 – 1,000|
|Pro||3%||10||Yes||1,001 – 2,500|
|VIP||5%||25||Yes||2501 – 5,000|
Once you reach a level, you’ll then have to maintain that status by placing so many bets each month. Here’s how much you’ll need to spend each month to maintain each level:
Pretty standard stuff. My biggest gripe is I’d like them to add more benefits. The birthday bonus is cool, but that only comes around once per year. It’d be nice to see a bonus or two you could claim in the meantime.
Other than that, it’s cool that you only need to deposit $5,000+ to reach the highest tier. The tradeoff, however, is that you’d need to wager $20,000 (4x that!) to maintain your status each month.
That might not be worthwhile for everyone – especially considering how few perks there are to claim. But that’s something you’ll have to decide for yourself.
Amazon Slots has more than 200 casino games, thanks to the software providers they work with. Some of the top names Amazon gets their games from include: NetEnt, Eyecon, Cozy Games and iSoftBet.
You’ll get to choose from all the standard casino games, such as slots, keno, blackjack and video poker. Though, as you’re about to find out, there are definitely more of some types of games than others.
We’ll get to that in a second. But first, how do you play their games?
Well, Amazon slots doesn’t do the traditional casino download. This is good news, in my opinion, as instant play (browser) casinos are lightweight, convenient and compatible with far more devices.
Customers on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems should have no problem playing here. That goes for iOS and Android phone and tablet users too.
Blackberry and Windows mobile devices will be hit or miss, but I would most certainly give it a shot. It won’t hurt anything.
Now let’s look at some examples of casino games you can play. Amazon Slots focuses on slots (imagine that!). So, that’s where we’ll start.
There are lots of interesting titles here. The slots I’d check out first include Hansel and Gretel, Jimi Hendrix, Bloodshot and Cops and Robbers.
All the basics appear to be covered here, though, no matter what type of slot you’re into. Meaning, you’ll have plenty of slots with features (multipliers, free spins, cascading wilds, etc.) and bonus rounds.
They also run a weekly leaderboard content they call a Spin-A-Thon. You’ll receive points based on how much you bet each spin.
Here’s what that looks like:
The top 25 players who accumulate the most points and place the highest on the leaderboard will win a piece of the $1,000 prize pool.
As you can see, the quantity of their other games pale in comparison.
But I think they’ve done an okay job with their table games section. While I certainly would like to see more options added, such as pai gow poker, Caribbean stud or war, there’s enough games here to keep most people happy.
Where I think they drop the ball, though, is in not offering live dealer games. They work with NetEnt, who runs their own live dealer department.
Other than that, they drop the ball BIG TIME with their video poker section. There’s no reason not to have 10+ video poker games and multi-hand variants considering the software providers they’ve partnered with.
I get that they have ‘slots’ in their name, but even slot players – such as myself – enjoy playing other games once in a while.
Those are probably my two biggest complaints. Otherwise their casino isn’t too shabby.
Alright, so let’s wrap this up. What do we think of Amazon Slots?
Let’s start with my biggest complaints first:
Those are my biggest complaints. Now, what about what I like the most?
Overall, they have a decent casino.
That said, I wouldn’t make this the first casino you join. Like the other casinos on Jumpman Gaming, I highly recommend waiting until you have an account and have spent some time on a better casino so you know what a good casino looks like. I recommend 888 or Bet365.
But once you’ve done that, and assuming you acknowledge and accept my complaints above, I see no reason why you shouldn’t give Amazon Slots a shot.
