Jumpman Gaming may be new kids on the block, but they have definitely got the hang of developing some really top notch phone friendly casinos. Slot Shack is a perfect example of their notable skill.
You can see it in the design. It’s a relatively plain, simple affair. Now this may not sound very exciting – a bit dull in fact. But when it comes to playing games on your phone, you need everything to be focused on the actual games. Not on loads of glitzy graphics and scrolling banners. This is because you want your games to load quickly and efficiently, and as we all know, our mobile reception network is not as good as it should be. So the simpler the site’s architecture, the quicker it will load, even on a dodgy 3G signal.
And just because there is no flashing neon or other unnecessary glamour, it doesn’t mean the games are poor. On the contrary, the games here are excellent. This is particularly the case with the slot selection. There are hundreds here, from some of the biggest names in gaming software. These include NetEnt and Microgaming, but also several other excellent designers, such as NextGen Gaming and Pariplay.
So you get lots of variety together with most of today’s contemporary favourites. And continuing the emphasis on phone friendliness, all titles can be arranged A – Z at the tap of a screen icon, plus there is a useful Search box too. All very useful in reducing the need to scroll through endless lists on your compact display screen.
Other games available include several alternative forms of bingo, Slingo, scratch cards and some video casino table games too: Blackjack, Poker and Roulette are all provided.
Payment options include Visa and MasterCard, PayPal and Paysafecard. The minimum deposit amount is £10. You can also Pay by Phone, but there are some additional conditions attached. If you decide to use your phone bill to make payments, you will be restricted to a maximum of £30 per day. Plus you will be required to pay a fee if you pay in £20 or less.
Withdrawals can be made from just a tenner, but it is better to start at £30. Claims for less than this figure will incur a fee. Unlike many casinos though, there is no maximum limit, as Slot Shack allows you to withdraw your entire prize fund in a single instalment if you wish. All claims are subject to a 72 hour pending period. Despite this, your funds should reach your own account within around seven days of your claim.
If there is a downside to Slot Shack’s back to basics approach, it comes with the relatively low level of customer support. There is an FAQ section, but if you require further assistance there is only e-mail and live chat. Even this is available during normal working hours only. These run from 9.30 am to 6pm Monday to Friday, UK time.
This casino is licenced on the UK Channel Island of Alderney. It is therefore fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, so it can be considered safe to play for United Kingdom based players.
