Videoslots has one of the biggest (possibly the very biggest) selection of slot games available anywhere.  We’re talking thousands of games, not hundreds.

As of Spring 2018 there were a staggering 2400+ games from 75 different providers on the Videoslots site (the number actually available to play depends on which country you are in) and although these are not all slot games (there’s also table games, video poker and scratch cards) most are.  Pretty well every slot game you could ever wish to play is here, including progressive jackpots from Microgaming and other providers.

Videoslots has a refreshing but rather complicated approach to wagering requirements – the rate at which play on a slot game contributes to filling the wagering requirement is directly related to the slot’s theoretical RTP.  Slots with RTP of 96% are considered to be the baseline and contribute 100% – and the contribution changes by 0.25% for each 0.01% by which the theoretical RTP differs from 96% (up to a maximum of 75%).  For example, if you play Thunderstruck 2 while you have a wagering requirement to fill, it has a theoretical RTP of 97% so contributes at 75%.  Non slot games contribute at a flat 10%.  The only games that can’t be played in order to fill a wagering requirement are progressive jackpots.

More information can be found in Videoslots’ Terms & Conditions

To help players work out their wagering requirement for various games, Videoslots has a search page for finding the theoretical RTP for a game without having to wade through a list that is more than 2000 entries long.  The search page does much more than that, though – it also allows player to browse lists of games based on what type of game they are, ranked on how popular they are and what the payout percentage is – actual, as well as theoretical. So for example, you can look at the slot games with an expanding wilds feature, find out which were the most played last month and what the theoretical and actual RTP is for each one.  With so many slots to choose from, this tool is bound to prove invaluable for finding new games to try.

The My RTP feature (which is unique to Videoslots) goes even further, and allows players to compare the RTP they actually achieved to a game’s theoretical RTP, as well as view their total number of spins, biggest win and stake placed to get it on individual games.

Videoslots has a regularly updated news section (updated several times a week and sometimes multiple times in one day) with reviews of newly added slot games and details of time limited promotions (such as prize draws).

Videoslots also runs regular promotions and at the time of writing these include:

Weekend Booster – a weekly cashback amount (50p – £300) based on the week’s play (progressive jackpot slots excluded) and the RTP of the slots played, paid in cash the following Friday.  Be aware though that this cannot be combined with any other promotion so if you have a bonus in play, you won’t receive the Weekend Booster.

£90K Weekly Casino Race – a leaderboard contest based on total spend over the week (minimum 20p spin for 1 point, maximum points 8 per £2+ spin) with cash prizes for the top 9782 (yes, that’s nine thousand, seven hundred and eighty-two players and not a typo – the bottom prize is £3 and the top prize is £500).  Again, this cannot be combined with any other promotion so no points are scored by players who have a bonus active.

Battle of Slots Tournaments – there are several types of these, some with a set buy-in and some which can be entered for free after meeting deposit and play requirements.  Players have a set number of spins on a specified slot (in some tournaments they can buy more) and have to score the most in the time to win the guaranteed prizes.  Each tournament also has a chat window in case you want to strike up a conversation with the other participants.  Again, players with an active bonus cannot participate.

All in all, Videoslots is about as far from a run of the mill casino skin site as it is possible to get – the sheer variety of slot games and promotions make it very unlikely that players will get bored there.
