Slotland

Slotland has been operating on the web since 1998 and although this slot-only casino isn’t for everyone, the solid reputation earned by this casino still makes it very popular. The fact that US players are welcomed here also keeps players coming back for more. As an added bonus, the software used by Slotland is accessible on pretty much any internet-facing device (think iPods, web TVs, mobile phones) and as such players pretty much anywhere (any anyhow!) can get playing.

Software and Games:

Slotland is very much a slot-focussed casino and although there are a few games that initially don’t look like slots (e.g. Video Poker games) they soon reveal themselves to work on a slot basis, particularly for the jackpot (which is linked across all games and controlled by a random number generator). For those players that like slots though Slotland is definitely your place. The proprietary games (these aren’t available anywhere else) really do offer players a taste of something unique. The Heavy Metal game, for example, sees players weighing up the odds of getting a winner based on past spinning combinations. Booster is also another classic – with every losing bet adding 100% of its value to an ever-climbing pot, players can choose to cash in 10% of that pot at any time or gamble in the game to win all of that pot when the right combination comes in. Of course, those going for the gamble can also lose the lot!

Slotland will also appeal to jackpot lovers with every game contributing to a site-side progressive jackpot. This jackpot starts at $50,000 and often climbs above the $100,000 mark. With any game potentially being a winner, players can bet on anything knowing they stand a chance of that massive win.

Game Presentation:

Historically Slotland has put off some players due to the fact the graphics in the game are very simple and there are no sound effects. This is down to the fact that the casino wants to offer software that can be played pretty much anywhere. However, in order to keep up with the competition players accessing the site via their computer can now access a selection of Flash games. These bring enhanced graphics and basic sound effects.

Generally though, the draw of Slotland is the game themselves. These are definitely unique and once you become accustomed to the simple presentation of the games, the fun factor really starts to climb. Particularly with the in-game special features, we are hard pushed to think of a site that matches the innovative games offered at this site.

We also like the fact that payout tables are structured in such a manner that means players can often get some decent winners each session. Hugh jackpot machines are nice but if that means lower-paying wins are pretty much impossible to hit it doesn’t make playing much fun. At Slotland you are almost guaranteed that your deposit will last (the 98% payback helps too!)

Cash, Deposits and Withdrawals:

Cash processing is a strong point at Slotland with players able to deposit amounts fixed at either $25, $50, $100 or $200. Credit cards are welcomed as well as NeTeller, Money Bookers and bank wire. Given this site accepts US players, the finance team work hard to provide a variety of deposit methods that will work. This is demonstrated through the selection of deposit processors used – many of these offer telephone pre-paid services and as such deposits can be processed in a manner that doesn’t raise the ‘gambling flag’ to credit card companies.

Withdrawals are also well managed with the finance team processing all pending cashouts every Tuesday. Although this once-weekly payout could be considered slow, they pay like clockwork (check or eWallet payouts) and winners are guaranteed to get their money from this site.

Bonuses and Terms and Conditions:

Slotland really fousses on giving players a bit more and this is highlighted with the current $1000 sign-up bonus. This offers an initial 100% match and 9 more 50% matches. What’s more, wagering conditions are just 12 times the bonus (and subsequent bonuses attract wagering conditions even lower than this). There’s also a host of other regular deposit match bonuses on offer and players even get their own personalised offers. For example, as soon as a player reaches $1000 in cumulative deposits Slotland adds a free $100 to the players account! Getting a good amount of play for your money is definitely a plus at this casino.

Customer Support:

Slotland’s support team are second to none when it comes to offering quick and personable responses to emails. Although email is the only contact method available, the 5 minute turnaround time (yes, literally 5 minutes!) means no one is left hanging around. The team also seem really keen to help out and every player should be able to find the help they need with this site.

Other Comments and Summary:

In summary Slotland does a number of good things to keep players satisfied. Unique games, good customer support and solid cash handling keep players coming back for more. The presentation of the games won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but the unique nature of the games will definitely capture players’ imaginations. What’s more, American players will like the US-friendly approach and other players from around the world may well like the ‘play anywhere’ approach this site takes. All in all Slotland is a solid player in the market and although the site can take a little getting used to, when you start playing we are sure you’ll get hooked!
