We don't know how many times we'll have to say this, as ProgressPlay keeps rolling out great casino after great casino, but the range of games on offer at Slot Alerts keeps up with the high standard of their other ventures. Yet again, there's names like Microgaming, Next Gen and Thunderkick to keep slots players occupied, and a strong collection of table games too.
You can play popular titles like Hot as Hades and Ariana by Microgaming, the huge Psycho slot by Next Gen, and more niche slots like The Lab from Elk Studios. There's sure to be something to meet your needs as you scroll past endless amounts of games, or as the casino puts it, there's ‘slots of fun'.
There's over 10 progressive jackpot slots, if you want a bigger hit of excitement, including King Cashalot and Thunderstruck II. And last but not least, Slot Alerts offers a healthy selection of table games including 7 variations of roulette.
Slot Alerts are currently offering a huge 200% match deposit bonus, of up to £200, on your first deposit! This means if you deposit £50, for example, you'll have £150 to play with – or if you go all out and deposit £200, you'll have £600 to play with!
As with the other ProgressPlay casinos we've been visiting, the wagering requirements at Slot Alerts are pretty high (50x) and these must be met before you can make a withdrawal.
We must also note that there's currently nothing free on registration; no free spins and no free no deposit bonuses. We always think this is an oversight for a casino as giving something away at registration means that players can test the waters before making the plunge and depositing.
Slot Alerts have a whole host of promotions available yet, whilst we're very impressed, it can be hard to work out what's on offer as they have pages that contradict themselves.
Before you register, you can access the main promotions page where there's loads of great things ready to be claimed. However, after you log in (and on the mobile app) you're greeted with different promotions. We spoke to customer support and they assured us that all these great deals are on offer…
- Monday Madness – Make your Mondays that bit better with this promotion! The first deposit that you make of the day (up to £50) will be matched by a 100%! Even better, you can use this week in, week out for as long as you like! Just remember to enter the promo code MONDAY to claim.
- Game of the Day – every Wednesday, Slot Alerts are offering you a chance to play for free! Just look out for an email, which will state which game has been selected that week, and you'll be rewarded free spins. You simply need to log in and play, although free spins will only be granted to players who've deposited within the 14 days previously.
- Insurance Day – As Slot Alerts say ‘Thursday is the new Friday' and this is why they want to have you covered for the weekend. You simply have to make a deposit of at least £50 (using the promo code INSURE) and you'll see 10% of your losing wagers right back in your wallet by the next day.
- Big Cash Weekend Race – It's the weekend, and what better way to make sure its a success than by taking part in Slot Alerts' Cash Race? Simply deposit throughout the weekend and try to rack up as many VIP points as possible. The top 3 players with the most VIP points gained over the weekend will be awarded cash prizes!
- Weekly Surprise – Slot Alerts are keeping the suspense brewing with this curious promotion. They don't give away much, but they do say that anyone who's deposited within the previous 14 days could be in with a chance of being rewarded with a special bonus.
There's other promotions up for grabs too, be it weekly offers, monthly periods or chances to work your way up their VIP scheme. Just keep an eye on their promotions page and we're sure you'll be seeing new promotions very soon…
Depositing at Slot Alerts is a simple process, made even easier by the range on banking options they've provided players with. Slot Alerts currently accepts deposits made by VISA, Mastercard, Maestro, Neteller, Skrill, Ukash, Paysafe Card and also Pay by Phone.
Pay by Phone is a mobile billing option that allows you to deposit straight from your handset. This means its quick and easy to do, and there's no messing around trying to remember card details.
The minimum and maximum depositing amounts vary from method to method so it's worth checking out their terms and conditions, although all methods are free to use and should be credited to your account instantly.
Withdrawing at Slot Alerts is just as easy as their depositing process. When you make a withdrawal the funds are automatically transferred to you by the same payment method you used for your initial deposit. However, for deposits made by Pay by Phone or Ukash, you'll have to select a different method.
There's a minimum withdrawal limit of £20 via e-wallets, £20 via bank transfer and credit/debit cards, and £50 via wire transfer. There's also a maximum withdrawal of £1,500 per week, or £3,000 per month.
How Important Is Originality?
We've been visiting a lot of ProgressPlay casinos lately as we were so impressed with what was on offer at places like Royal Swipe and Mobile Wins. Whilst they haven't let us down yet, (every casino has a great roster of games, a good selection of banking methods and plenty of generous promotions), we're a bit tired of seeing the same app design again and again.
ProgressPlay have clearly put a lot of effort into their casinos' lobbies. For instance, we love the bright blue of Slot Alerts and how easy it is to navigate your way around the casino. However, on the whole the design stops the minute you log-in. After log-in, you're greeted with the same simplified design as any other ProgressPlay casino, the same graphics and the same adverts.
Original design is not the be all and end all of a casino by any means, but some variation between the sites wouldn't go amiss. On the surface the casino looks great and has a great feel, so why leave players feeling slightly cheated after they've actually taken the time out to register?
Other casinos like Slot Alerts
Winzino – Perhaps an unexpected match, as Winzino is a much smaller site produced by Nektan. However if you've loved the bold colour scheme of Slot Alerts and their easy to use app, then Winzino could be the place for you. A casino designed specifically for mobile players, it's fully optimized across all devices. There's only 30 games on offer, but there's exclusive Nektan games and you'll still be able to find your Next Gen faves.
Titanbet – If the fact that Slot Alerts accepts deposits made via mobile billing, then you might also love Titanbet. There's a good selection of games including tons of progressive jackpots, brought to you by Playtech. There's a similar welcome package to Slot Alerts, with a 100% match on your first deposit, but Titanbet are also refunding 50% of all losses made in the first 24 hours.
Slot Alerts is definitely a good choice if you're looking for somewhere to play that offers a good range of games, a decent list of promotions and the ability to deposit via phone bill. In fact, surely there's not much else you could be looking for?
We're still disappointed by the high wagering requirements and some different design features would be nice, although if they're the only faults we can find, we think it's doing pretty well in our eyes.
