Jackpot247 Casino Review
The name of Jackpot247 Casino sounds really promising. Does it hint at a possibility of winning jackpots 24/7? Hell no, it can't be so with such a tiny games collection. Not to mention, it caters to UK players only, so there's that. Overall, the casino is nice, with all those fancy live ITV roulette games, progressive slots and an alright welcome bonus with an acceptable wagering requirement (25x on the bonus and deposit amount). However, if you want to receive your fair winnings, you should sink your teeth into them and never let go. They do like to delay and stall payments, as numerous players' reports suggest.
- License from the UK;
- Decent wagering requirements: 25x (B+D);
- Around-the-clock customer support;
- VIP club with the tempting offers.
- High number of complaints;
- Caters only to UK players;
- Low payout limit for the play round;
- Deposit made via Paysafecard, Neteller and Skrill aren't eligible for the Welcome Bonus.
Jackpot247 Casino is pretty popular in the UK for its live roulette games that are broadcasted on ITV channel. It has been in operation since 2008 and is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission. The casino currently accepts UK players only.
“The casino currently accepts UK players only.”
The website has recently received a face-lifting and looks nice and modern. The navigation is convenient, every tab and section is in its place. We could definitely use some ways to sort and filter the games though.
Banking: The selection of banking options is more or less ok - credit cards, PaysafeCard, Entropay, Neteller and Skrill (called Moneybookers here. Didn’t they know they rebranded four years ago?). Also, it should be noted that Jackpot247 Casino has received numerous complaints from players, mostly about delayed and declined payments, and smaller payout amounts than they should be. Most of them are resolved, but it seems to be a pain to get your winnings from them. So, be sure to check their T&C carefully not to get into trouble when withdrawing your funds.
Customer Support: As you have understood, a good support stuff is really needed here. Thankfully, Jackpot247 Casino offers a high level of support service which is available round the clock. It is available through the live chat, email, and toll-free phone number. However, you must have patience, as their chat line are often overcrowded (you could guess why).
Software and Game Variety
Jackpot247 Casino has two games sections - Casino and Vegas. The first one is a standard Playtech library, while the second one features an assorted list of slots from IGT, Quickspin and more Playtech for some reason. All the games are available via instant play. Overall, the library counts just about 250 titles. Not particularly impressive. Let’s have a look at the games collection:
- Slots: Ace Ventura, Top Gun, King Kong, Full Moon Fortunes, Ghostbusters.
- Jackpots: Gladiator, Fairest of Them All, Clover Rollover, Jackpot Giant.
- Blackjack: Blackjack Switch, 21 Duel Blackjack, Blackjack UK.
- Roulette: 3D Roulette, Roulette Pro, European Roulette.
Keno, Bingo, Video Poker and Casino Hold’em are one each and you’ll have to explicitly search for them in the All games tab.
However, the most problematic issue are their jackpot games, as the casino set a £250,000 win limit per a game round. So, if you will hit a big jackpot, you’ll have some troubles on the way of withdrawing your winnings.
Mobile and Live Games
For those of you who enjoy playing on the go, Jackpot247 Casino offers two options: a simple instant play mode right in your mobile browser and a dedicated app available for both iOS and Android. Both options work fine and it’s really up to you which one to choose.
Live games are supposed to be the thing that helps Jackpot247 Casino stand out from the crowd. And they do help: besides your standard blackjack, roulette and baccarat, they have several fancy home-made roulette variations that are broadcasted on TV.
Bonuses and Promotions
Jackpot247 Casino offers new players the Welcome Bonus on the first deposit: 100% match bonus up to £200. Wagering requirements attached to it are pretty standard: x25 on the deposit plus bonus amount. However, deposits made through PaysafeCard, Neteller or Skrill are not eligible for this promo, meaning that you will have to use your credit card to get it. As usual, be sure to read full terms and conditions before you claim anything.
