With so many online and mobile casinos out there, one would think that every possible casino theme has been exhausted. However SlotMob Casino has proven us all wrong. Launching this week, this gangster themed casino with a bright red colour scheme is a breath of fresh air when compared to all modern, à la Vegas casinos that have no theme. Plus, throw in over 200 of IGT and Microgaming games, a VIP scheme and compatibility with any type of mobile device, and you got yourself a casino that we are very excited to review.

It’s a real mob of software providers whose games appear at SlotMob Casino! IGT and Microgaming are but a few of the ones that the casino uses to create a varied, eclectic mix of games that you can enjoy, both on desktop and mobile. In fact, over 110 titles are available to play on your mobile devices. Of course, some games are hits and some are misses, but with such a huge variety to choose from, both fluffy kitten lovers and Game of Thrones’ afficionados will find an attention worthy slot.
Another big thing at SlotMob are the Jackpots. The overall jackpot winning potential is so huge, that it rivals some of the older and more established casinos that are well known for their jackpots. You can find some of the biggest progressives at SlotMob:
Major Millions – the 5-reel, 15 payline slot offers much more than combo wins; currently standing at £500,000, the progressive jackpot is up for grabs for anyone who plays the slot.
The Dark Knight Rises & Mega Moolah – both slots offer four different types of jackpots that can be won during the bonus wheel feature round. Take home the Mini (wins from £10), Minor (wins from £100), Major (wins from £10,000) or Mega Jackpot (wins from £1,000,000).
And then, there is the £500,000 Megajackpot. The players simply have to play the Megajackpot versions of Siberian Storm or Cleopatra (or both if they fancy) and they automatically stand the chance of claiming the jackpot with each bet they wager. When the jackpot is won, the new one is…£500,000 again! So there isn’t a boring day to play at SlotMob, even if the jackpot has just been claimed.
All new players get a welcome bonus of 100% first deposit match of up to £500. Pretty standard if you ask me, or even slightly sub-standard, because some casinos offer 200%, 300% cash matches or even 100% cash match on an unlimited amount. Other than that, currently there are no no-deposit bonuses on offer, nor are there any bonuses on your subsequent deposits.
There are a few terms and conditions attached to the welcome bonus too. It is only available to people from the UK and Northern Ireland, only one bonus can be claimed per household and the wagering requirements are 35x. Is it just me or would you not expect the zoot-suit wearing gangsters to offer you a bit more in terms of bonuses? Oh well.

This is the saddest section of this review, because there really isn’t much to talk about. I see this as the weakest point of SlotMob casino, because there aren’t many promotions to talk of. Perhaps as you spend more money and time at the casino, your personalised “My Promotions” page starts filling up, but for the player that’s just starting out, there isn’t much to stay put after the initial welcome bonus. One banner does mention a VIP loyalty scheme, but I couldn’t locate any more detail on that anywhere.

You can deposit to your SlotMob account by using one of the most popular credit or debit cards. This is quite a drawback as there are no pre-paid card, e-wallet or phone bill options, but perhaps the casino is too new to have those included. So, by using VISA (credit/debit), VISA Electron, Maestro or MasterCard, you can deposit a minimum of £10 and a maximum of £1,000 per transaction. In any 24 hour period, you can deposit a maximum of £5,000.

All the same methods of depositing are also available for withdrawals. In addition to them, you can make a wire transfer to your bank account. Note that you can make up to five withdrawals in any 24 hour period and the maximum you can withdraw in that period is £10,000. If you got lucky and scored a massive win above £10,000, it can be paid out to you in monthly installments of £10,000.
Although the minimum withdrawal amount is £20, you can contact the customer service team if you wish to withdraw less than that. Lastly, there is no word on the site as to how long the withdrawals take, but we trust hat it shouldn’t be longer than two to three days for the funds to drop into your account.

The importance of an engaging brand
You could see our surprise and excitement about the brand of SlotMob at the very introduction of this review. Fun and recognisable themes are hard to come by, not only because they are hard to create in the first place, but they are hard to develop and maintain. That’s why I think SlotMob has done a great job at finding a theme niche that has yet been unexploited as opposed to going to your run-of-the-mill Vegas or sleek-black-and-red type casino.
The cartoon gangster characters brandishing tommy guns are more entertaining than stock photos of girls at roulette tables, that much is for sure. Sometimes, a humorous theme is all you need to differentiate yourself from tonnes of other casinos that offer the same bonuses, promotions and even games. So thanks for the refreshing gameplay environment, SlotMob!

We come by new casinos every week and it’s been a while since we reviewed one that had such an engaging theme, a seamless and the most smoothly running mobile interface, and was pure pleasure to play at. Add the great game selection from many software developers, a decent welcome bonus proposition and the progressive jackpot winning potential, and you get yourself a casino that you simply must try out. We wish there were more payment options and more promotions, but hope that’s all coming in the near future.
