Deposit £10+, Get 100% Slot Bonus up to £100 + 100 spins
Last update: 9th October 2023
Jackpot Mobile Casino is a Grace Media slot and casino site with a very decent welcome offer – there’s bonus and spins to be claimed on your second and third deposits as well as your first. Be aware, though, that the bonus can only be used on a special selection of around 25 “Welcome Slots”.
The new welcome offer at Jackpot Mobile Casino is a bit of a double-edged sword. For a start, it’s actually a multi-stage offer that requires three deposits. The first stage is good enough to stand on its own but most of the “£500 welcome package” you’ll find advertised on site would come from making a 3rd deposit of £600 in order to claim a £300 bonus, and not everyone is going to want do to that.
Then there’s the “Welcome Slots”. Restricting the bonus to certain games and putting them all in their own area in the lobby does make the welcome offer much easier to understand for players as there’s no need for any list of games that are excluded from bonus play or contribute to the wagering requirement at a reduced rate. And many of the games are evergreen classics – Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Wolf Gold, Fishin’ Frenzy, Bonanza, a couple of Fluffy games – so there’s certainly going to be something you want to play. But many players won’t fancy the idea of being restricted to these games only while they play through the wagering requirement (which is higher than it looks because the deposit as well as the bonus is included in the calculation).
The welcome offer apart, what’s Jackpot Mobile Casino actually like? The answer is, it’s disappointing in some ways but has some advantages that are not immediately apparent.
For example, the live casino selection looks small and there’s only one game show (Pragmatic Play’s Boom City). However, the rest of the live casino games are by Ezugi rather than one of the more usual providers, which many players will no doubt find a refreshing change.
Also, and this is particularly disappointing given that the site is called Jackpot Mobile Casino, there aren’t any progressive jackpots at all. Grace Media sites have not offered these for quite a while now. They are expensive for operators and clearly there’s been a strategic decision to cut those costs. It does mean, though, that they HAVEN’T cut costs in a different way, one which is not immediately apparent but makes a big difference to the player experience; many popular slot games these days have switched from having a fixed Return To Player to its being set by the operator from within a range. For example, Starburst can have RTP ranging from 92.05% to 96.09% and you can check what it is at the site you are playing at by looking at the game help files. At Grace Media sites (as of autumn 2023) it was 96.09% and other slot games also had RTP set near the top of the range, which is considerably better than you’ll find at most other online casinos.
Perhaps this is why Jackpot Mobile Casino and other Grace Media sites are also a bit light on promotions. That, and the relatively small number of available payment methods may make this casino look quite unappealing. If RTP is important to you, however, you’ll probably want to check it out.
