Well, this isn't something you see everyday. Slot-oriented casino, SlotsMillion, can only be described as incredibly ambitious. Not only does the website provide players with over 1,000 slots to chose from various different developers but is one of the few that has a virtual reality casino. Incredible, right?
And this virtual reality isn't some clunky extension of the actual casino — it is a fully augmented 360 degree view digital space where players can sit at virtual slot machines and spin to their heart's content. Just download the app and play! But how does the digital casino fair up? Is this the way of the future or are traditional/conventional mobile casinos better?

SlotsMillion doesn't quite live up to the name of having a million slots (God, won't that be wonderful?) but it does break the 1,000 benchmark.
With many of its providers being some of the top providers in the industry that power many of our top 20 casinos, it's little wonder how SlotsMillon has such a vast quantity of games. For obvious reasons, it would be too lengthy to list all of them but there are some pretty famous titles such as Starburst, Twin Spin, Gonzo's Quest, Immortal Romance, Spiñata Grande and Drive: Multiplayer Mayhem. All of these can be accessed via the virtual reality simulation which we think is fantastic. It would be like wandering into your favourite real-life casino to find your favourite online slot in physical manifestation before your eyes.
The only way this could be better is if SlotsMillion decides to expand its gaming arsenal into bingo rooms or classic casino table games. Imagine how extensive the virtual casino would be if you could wander into different rooms serving different kinds of gambling! The future really is here. So far, however, the casino only has slots, as indicated by the name, but if it were to become more multi-faceted, it would make the casino truly spectacular. But one thing at a time. As it stands, SlotsMillion has more than a few legs to stand on without these additional features.

Unfortunately, what SlotsMillion has in games it fails to make up for in terms of bonuses. Without even a hint of a welcome bonus, the online casino only has one bonus to boast of to welcome new players:
- Free Spins Bonus: Players receive up to 100 free spins as a welcome gift to SlotsMillion. This depends heavily on your activity on the sight too. You can get anything up to 20 a month.
It doesn't take a genius to say that this is rather pathetic. Sure, 100 free spins is a lot more than other casinos. But no welcome fee? What are we to gamble with? That means you would have to put down a deposit in order to play anything with real money. Hardly becoming of a potentially pioneering casino.

Fortunately, there are some fairly decent promotions for existing players but again they are rather limited:
- Happy Bonus Friday: Every Friday, players get a chance of making up to 50% of their deposit.
- Oculus Rift: Enter the lottery for a chance to win some virtual reality goggles for a more enriching experience of the virtual casino.
- Rewards: Earn points through playing and you could end up winning cashbacks, reload bonuses and more.
We can't help but feel there are some missed opportunities here. The casino could lure in far more players if only it chose to promote more deals. It almost seems like they're relying too much on the niche of having a virtual reality section. Having something technologically superior is great but if that's all the casino has to offer then why bother? The gimmick will be short-lived and players will play elsewhere.

Deposits & Withdrawals
The deposit methods for SlotsMillion are fairly standard and secure. Players have a number of options from which to do it, too, though sadly there appears to be no mobile deposit method. This is the way many online casinos are going so it's a surprise to see that SlotsMillion has not incorporated it. That being said, here are the main deposit methods they do have:
- Mastercard: Probably the most universal way next to Visa for deposits, this method allows players to almost simultaneously put down money or use their credit card.
- Visa: Same as above but perhaps more instant if you have Visa Debit.
- Neteller & PaySafe: Two methods common among many online casinos, both these gems are fast and secure ways to deposit your funds.
- ecoPayz: A long-established company that prides itself on its history, this payment service is basically an alternative to PayPal.
- Wire Transfer: More international in its money transference, this money deposit method is a must for all casinos and if you live abroad, you can pay regardless where you are.
Withdrawal at SlotsMillion takes some time. It could be up to 30 days before you get your money — a whole month!! This, for those who need the money urgently, is a little unacceptable. Granted, the money could be given in any of those 30 days but the large window is a big deterrent for any potential players.

Now we've got all the usual stuff out of the way, let's talk about the virtual casino.
It's good. Like, really good. So good we can hardly believe that SlotsMillion had the money to build it. It takes a hell of a lot of programming to pull it off even halfway decently.
But the casino itself is incredibly detailed and runs so smoothly it's jaw-dropping. It may not be as real as reality but it certainly creates the illusion of being in a real casino. It certainly has that atmosphere. And the best part? You don't even need the goggles to play it!
Simply download the app onto your device and get playing! Seriously, it's worth it.

Other Casinos like SlotsMillion
Casino VR — This virtual reality favourites table games with events, tournaments and leader boards that gives poker a more competitive edge. The VR world here is less sophisticated than SlotsMillion but still has a strong sense of community with players getting their own avatars in-game — floating head avatars but avatars all the same. tHe play-ability is also very smooth.

RiftSino — Another virtual reality that focuses heavily on table games, this VR leans more on your persona as being the badass gambler akin to James Bond who walks around all sophisticated as if he owns the place. There's as much community here as Casino VR but the graphics are rather worse for wear. Still, they're not so bad as to affect gameplay and it can be played on your game console.

While it certainly lacks any real features to keep the player playing, SlotsMillions earns many points for seamlessly blending together its large list of slot titles into its own virtual world. For that, we have to give it props. It may just be a gimmick designed to attract more players but the niche is so well developed that it can't just be brushed off as the developers being overly ambitious.
We could harp on about the design of the website itself, too. Though easily navigable, some critics have deemed the design ugly and unappealing which, to be fair, is a legitimate point. The colours are generic and makes it difficult to ignore the fact that if you took away the virtual casino, that would be all that was left. Still, the slots are worth playing regardless so this casino earns our approval.
