Visit Island Jackpots Casino

You probably won’t be surprised when Island Jackpots opens with a view of a tropical island. Cartoon-style visuals create a friendly vibe and make the Island feel approachable and fun. Hosted by Rich (“by name and by nature”), this new gaming site is home to more than 200 slots and jackpots ready to deliver. The unique Jackpot Tracker is advertised as a tool which will let you know when these potentially highly lucrative games are “ready to burst”. The Casino is part of Cassava family which already boasts numerous high performing brands, and although it was launched as recently as May 2017, the Island is actually a re-brand of 2 years old Shanghai Spins. Check what they’ve learned during their previous life and find out how well a trip to this exotic destination can meet your online gaming needs.

Promotions

List of Ongoing Offers

  • 100% first deposit bonus up to £10 (buy £10, get £10 free) plus 10 free slot spins with bonus code JACKPOT

While the first deposit bonus is a pretty standard 100% match (£10 deposit needed to qualify), the max amount of only £10 is more than modest. The bonus itself is not withdrawable, and the resulting winning are subject to 35x wagering requirements. You will additionally receive 10 Free Spins which can deliver up to £50 withdrawable cash (promo code JACKPOT).

Moving on, Island Jackpots offers a 12-step VIP program which provides additional perks such as daily wager-free Free Spins, cashbacks, access to exclusive tournaments, and more. There is a bit of discrepancy when it comes to promotion terms in different parts of the site, so we’ll go with what is specified in general T&C. These state that loyalty chips are awarded for every £2 wagered, and can be exchanged for bonus cash at a rate of 1,000 chips for £1.

Terms & Conditions also mention the Invite-a-Friend Bonus which is paid in the form of £10 bonus funds. You’ll receive this amount if your friend registers, deposits a min of £10, and wagers £10 or more within 14 days.

The operator boasts a unique Jackpot Tracker, “letting you know when jackpot games are ready to explode with riches”, and claims you can receive email and SMS alerts which will tell you when this is about to happen. It’s not quite clear how this mechanism is supposed to work, since jackpot games are operated with an RNG, same as all others, and nobody can predict when they would pay out.

Licensing

Company Info

Operated by Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Limited and 888 UK Limited
Licenses issued by the UK Gambling Commission and Gibraltar gaming license

Island Jackpots operates with licenses issued by the UK Gambling Commission and additionally holds a Gibraltar gaming license. These two are a pretty good guarantee you’ll experience a fair treatment and won’t be exposed to any unfriendly practices. The website also displays eCogra Safe & Fair stamp as an additional assurance that the Casino games comply with UK online gaming industry standards and that proper monitoring is in place to provide players’ protection.

Software & Game Selection

This gaming venue currently offers online access to about 200 games developed by NetEnt, Eyecon, Barcrest, Thunderkick, NextGen, PariPlay, Blueprint Gaming, IGT, WMS, and Sigma Gaming. While fans of slots get to enjoy Fairytale Legends, Arcader, Foxin’ Wins, Hercules High & Mighty, Pixies of the Forest, and many other popular titles, those into table games will not have a lot to choose from. But Island Jackpots anyway promotes itself as a slots destination, and more specifically, jackpots paradise. Current total jackpot value stands at just over £2 million, with the biggest contributors being Mega Fortune, Fluffy Favorites and Millionaire Genie.

Friendly Rich will give you equally warm welcome when you visit his home via an iPhone, iPad or an Android mobile device. There are no special apps to download, so just use your browser to disembark on the Island and potentially collect life-changing wins.

Banking

Banking Options

Visa, MasterCard, Visa Debit, Maestro, Neteller (only UK gamers), PayPal, Paysfecard, EntroPay, Cheque, and Wire Transfer

A decent range of payment methods includes credit and debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Visa Debit, Maestro), Neteller (only UK gamers), PayPal, Paysfecard, EntroPay, Cheque, and Wire Transfer. Deposit limits are set to a relatively high £15,000 daily, £30,000 weekly and £50,000 monthly.

SSL protocol with 128-bit encryption keeps your card details and financial transactions secure, making it impossible for a third party to gain access to your confidential information. The minimum withdrawal amount is £20, and unlike with deposits, maximum cash-out limits are very low: £1,000 per day, £2,000 per week, and £5,000 per month. All withdrawal requests will be kept pending during 48 hours.

Contact Info & Social Activity

Very short FAQ list might make you feel lost at sea, but there is a friendly and responsive support team ready to thrown you a life-belt. The speed of your rescue depends on what time of day you get stranded as customer service operates during limited hours. They can be contacted via a toll-free UK phone which is manned between 9AM to 1AM, 7 days a week, while an email query should be answered within 48 hours.

Verdict

Island Jackpots is yet another attempt to cater to the UK gaming community, but we have to say it doesn’t do the job as well as many of their senior competitors. Selection of games is small, promotional portfolio modest, and max cash-out limits very low. Support is only available during limited hours, and you might well need it to receive additional information and clarifications. It almost looks like different parts of the website were created by different people, who in the process forgot to communicate to each other. The result is plenty of black holes and contradictory information. We don’t believe this to be an indication of a shady gaming operator, as the Casino holds highly reputable operating licenses. It’s just sloppy work which is not likely to help the new brand find its place in the sun.
