Overview

A New Zealand site is not allowed to market to Kiwis, but the
site is well known to gamblers in the United States, Canada, and
Australia. The US and Canadian dollars are the only currency
options, and English is the only language available. Players in
the Commonwealth of Nations, the United States, and Ireland are
going to be most comfortable there.

Slots.lv has an “approved” rating at Casinomeister, meaning
it resolves player complaints and handles cashouts in a timely
fashion. Slots.lv is given an annual audit by eCOGRA.

The casino library has 240 casino games and slot machines.
Most of the games are video slots, which are supported by four
different types of software:

  1. BetSoft
  2. RealTime Gaming
  3. Genesis Gaming
  4. Proprietary

Along with Net Entertainment, BetSoft is a leader in the
3D slots category. Most of the realistic or
vivid slot titles on the website are Betsoft games.

Slots.lv accepts American players. RTG’s gaming machines are
not as pretty, though some of the titles are funny or novel and
offer progressives. The proprietary software is designed
in-house. The software allows Slots.lv to accept US players, but
you’ll see a few restrictions when it comes to ISPs in other
countries.

The game catalog is diverse. 3D slots from Betsoft like “Good
Girls, Bad Girls”, “After Night Falls”, and “Who Spun It” are
pretty to look at. I’m less thrilled with the RealTime Gaming
slots and the proprietary offerings, but I won’t complain too
much. Betsoft is the star of the show, and Slots.lv positions
them on casino site as if they know it.

Slots.lv’s terms need to be analyzed closely. I’ve reviewed
several sites recently which offer a 20x or 25x wagering
requirement, so I can’t exactly say that the bonus requirements
are good at this casino. Still, I just reviewed a site with a
50x playthrough, so it could be worse.

Keep a close eye when grading the rewards program. For
instance, the Superior Referral Reward Bonus (given for
referring friends) tops out at $200, the same as the basic
referral bonus. Since the promotion is hyped as a 200% the
amount deposited (as opposed to the usual 100%), it’s really not
much of an improvement. This should have been $400 to make it a
compelling offer.

Bonus Details

Casino Welcome Bonus

Slots.lv offers up to $5,000 in bonus money over your first 9 deposits.
The first deposit allows people to triple their deposit up to
$1,000. The next eight deposits allow players to double
their deposit up to $500, for a total of $4,000 in welcome
deposit funds on the next 8 transactions.

Remember to use the promo code HELLOSLOTS200 on the first deposit.
Then use the bonus code HELLOSLOTS100 on the next eight deposits.
Only activity after code redemption counts towards the bonus
requirement, so do not forget this step. The playthrough
requirement is 35x, which is about average in the industry.
Only play the slot machines, keno, and scratchcard games to
clear the wagering requirement. If you play any other game,
you’ll lose the bonus money plus any winnings. Playing any
other game voids your winnings.
The complete welcome bonus information is on their site.
Players wanting to play lotto games and bingo receive the
same bonus offer.

Referral Reward Bonus

The New Referral Rewards Bonus provides you with a bonus the size of
your friend’s first deposit up to $200. The Superior Rewards
Bonus for new signups is worth 200% of your friend’s initial
deposit, up to $200.

Weekly Cash-Back Bonus

The Weekly Cashback Bonuses range between 10% and 25%, depending on
your rewards level.

$22 No Deposit Bonus

When you register a new account and input the promotional code
SLOTS22, you’ll receive an instant no-deposit bonus of $22
in your player account.

Mobile Casino Bonus

Anytime you wager $500 in a given week (counted Monday through Sunday) on your
smartphone or tablet computer, you get an additional $25
casino chip.

Player Rewards

Starting in August 2015, MySlots Rewards is going to become
the main Player Rewards program. Sometimes called a Redeposit
Bonus or “Reload Bonuses” in the terminology these days, this is
the bonus money you activate after your welcome bonus expires.

Games

Slot Machines

A site named Slots.lv is going to rise or fall on the virtual
slot machines it offers. The casino has 130 games, including the
most popular titles from Betsoft, Genesis Gaming, and RTG. I
want to discuss all three in their turn. Since I’ve discussed
Betsoft already, let me start with Genesis Gaming.

Genesis Gaming is a
Canadian software design companies with offices in the Yaletown
district of Vancouver, British Columbia and the Green Valley
area of Las Vegas. Genesis Gaming was founded in 2008 and has
carved out its own niche with oddball slot machine titles.

I’m thinking about games like Alaxe in
Zombieland
and Machine-Gun
Unicorn
, each of which has to do with fighting
zombies. Alaxe in Zombieland was inspired by Tim Burton’s Alice
in Wonderland
film, while Machine-Gun Unicorn takes its
inspiration from My Little Pony. For all those “Bronies” who
fear they’ll never get to play a My Little Pony Slots game, you
can get the next-best-thing with Machine-Gun Unicorn. This ICE
Finalist “Game to Watch” is about the day zombies invade
Ponyland.

Other Genesis Games which don’t follow the usual pattern of
Egyptians and Aztecs include:

  • Steampunk Heroes
  • Mystic Monkeys
  • Star Crystals

If you happen to like Egyptian themes, the company offers games like
The Gods of Giza.

Betsoft Gaming Ltd

BetSoft Gaming Ltd was founded in 2005 by game designers who wanted better-looking
online slots. The developers at the Valletta, Malta firm have
succeeded, as they compete with Net Ent and a few other 3D slot
design companies for the best-looking slot machines in the
industry.

Betsoft is known for its 3D slots, but the company does offer
classic slots games like Reel Outlaws, Back in Time, Aztec
Treasure, and Lucky 7. The 21 non-3D slots the company offers
provide the throwback themes gamblers in the 20th century
preferred. Betsoft’s 3D slots designers seem to take their
inspiration from Hollywood films and popular TV shows.

The company has no licensed slots, but many of them have a
suspicious similarity to popular shows of the last generation.
Weekend in Vegas
is clearly inspired by The Hangover movies,
and Under the Sea
is a knock-off of The Little Mermaid.
Slots Angels looks to be
inspired by Sons of Anarchy. And even
though Rock Star is based more
on an era of music than a single band, Slash might consider
suing the designers for his likeness being used on the game.

Not everything is a knock-off to something in the pop
culture, as House of
Fun
seems to be simply a wicked idea about people
stranded in a haunted house full of clowns and carnies, though I
might be missing the reference. House of Fun is like a cross
between a Rob Zombie film and a Tim Burton production.
Paco & The
Popping Peppers
is like no other slot
machines you’ll ever play. The game, which has cascading wilds,
is about “Paco and his salsa friends”.

RealTime Gaming

RealTime Gaming is a software design company located in Heredia, Costa Rica, which is
about 6 miles from the capital city. RTG is owned by Hastings
International B.V., a gaming company operating out of Dutch
Curacao in what used to be called the Netherlands Antilles. RTG
originally was an American-owned game design company which was
formed in 1998 in Atlanta, Georgia. The original owners sold out
after the UIGEA was passed in 2006, and the company soon was
moved out of the country.

RealTime Gaming offers over a hundred slots titles, which are
not all available on Slots.lv. Like the two companies above, it
has a lot of bizarre storylines, such as Rudolf’s Revenge and
Santa Strikes Back. These games are wicked Christmas games, but
they’re fun enough to play all year. RTG is one of the most
common providers of slots for US-facing online casinos.

All three of these gaming software design companies have a
couple of things in common. They are US-friendly, meaning they
accept play from American real money gamblers. Also, all three
companies develop slots titles which do not follow the standard
patterns of online slots design. I can appreciate that
commitment. I’m guessing these people assume U.S. slot machine
gamblers like strange themes. Being an American myself, I’m not
going to dispute their assessment.

As mentioned earlier, Slots.lv has 130 slot machines in the library. Of these, 77 are progressive slots.

Video Poker

Video poker is well-represented with 17 variations. These
include all the games you would expect to see. Deuces Wild and
Loose Deuces, which offer some of the best expected returns in
video poker, are welcome additions. I see no major oversights
here, so I give the video poker library a thumbs-up.

  • Jacks or Better
  • Jacks or Better 3 Hand
  • Jacks or Better 10 Hand
  • Jacks or Better 52 Hand
  • Deuces Wild
  • Bonus Deuces Wild
  • Bonus Poker
  • Bonus Poker Deluxe
  • Double Bonus Poker
  • Double Double Bonus Poker
  • Double Double Jackpot Poker
  • Double Jackpot Poker
  • Joker Poker
  • Joker Poker 3 Hand
  • Joker Poker 10 Hand
  • Joker Poker 52 Hand
  • Loose Deuces

Six of the games are just multi-hand version of Jacks or
Better and Joker Poker. I would not recommend playing these
games. They fall into a disturbing trend in online gaming in
which the casinos offer multi-hand, multi-spin, or multi-roll
version of a game. All this really does is force you to go
against the house edge more times, which is not to your
advantage. Even if you choose to lower your bet, it minimizes
the variance, which is great for the casino and not-so-great for
you.

Play Jacks or Better or Joker Poker in its original form,
instead. It might not seem as exciting to win or lose only 1
hand at a time, but it’s not to your advantage to win 17 of 52
hands every time you spin. In fact, it’s a losing proposition.

Casino Table Games

The table games section of the site has 16 different casino
table games and 3 specialty games. The library includes 6
different variants of blackjack and the 2 main forms of
roulette. Craps and baccarat are present, of course; and so are
several table games based on poker. I like the inclusion of
Vegas Three Card Rummy, which is unusual online.

  • Classic Blackjack
  • Craps
  • Baccarat
  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • 21 Blackjack
  • Caribbean Hold ‘Em
  • Double Deck Blackjack
  • European Blackjack
  • European Roulette
  • Let ‘Em Ride
  • Pai Gow Poker
  • American Roulette
  • Single Deck Blackjack
  • Zappit Blackjack
  • Vegas Three Card Rummy
  • Tri Card Poker

Specialty Games

Visitors to the site will notice three specialty games: keno,
scratch cards, and Virtual Racebook. Avoid keno or scratchies;
their house edge is awful. Also, the Virtual Racebook lacks the
element which makes betting on horse racing great – the ability
to learn about the thoroughbreds and make real picks based on
your expertise.

Stick with the table games and slots.

  • Scratcherz: Scratchcards or “Scratchies”
  • Keno
  • Virtual Racebook: Simulated Horse Racing

Mobile Casino

The mobile casino at Slots.lv appears to have most of the online
games converted for mobile devices like smartphones and
tablet computers. The site has downloadable casino apps for
iPhone 3 and later. I recommend having an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5
at the least. Of those, because of the huge screens, those
ridiculous-looking iPhone 6+ are the best smartphones for mobile
slots. All versions of iPad are compatible.

The mobile casino is designed for the Android OS, too.
Android commands 79% of the mobile smartphone market, so any
mobile casino is going to support the device. That means
Slots.lv should be compatible for smartphones like the LG G4,
Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, and
Motorola Nexus 6. Hit smartphones of 2014 like the Asuz Zenphone
2, LG G-Pro 2, Motorola Droid Maxx, Moto X, and Moto G should
work fine for many months to come.

The same goes for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and newer Note
12.2, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Asus Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10,
and Amazon Kindle Fire HD. While Android’s tablet computers are
roughly equal to the iPad with about 45% of the market each,
each operating system is going to be supported by any legitimate
mobile casino, which Slots.lv is.

Remember to activate the $25 Free Chip anytime you gamble at
least $500 in a week’s time at the mobile casino. This expires
in 14 days, so also remember to bet the chip before it expires.
The playthrough on this $25 chip is an insane 60x, so don’t get
your hopes up that you’ll ever cash out the bonus.

Slots.lv FAQ

Which countries are restricted from play at Slots.lv?

Slots.lv does not turn away players from any nation worldwide. If any person is not going to be accepted, I’d guess that would be people from New Zealand. Since Slots.lv is headquartered there, they want to stay within the law.

Is it safe to deposit money to Slots.lv’s cashier department?

Yes. The casino is audited by eCOGRA and it is accredited by Casinomeister, so it’s a legit gaming operator. With a 4-day minimum wait on withdrawals, you might not like how long you have to wait for a withdrawal, but you can rest assured you’ll get your money.

What are Slots.lv’s limit on withdrawals?

The deposit limits are a little complicated, so bear with me. If you want a check by courier, your minimum withdrawal is $50. Your max withdrawal is $2,000 (or $2,500 for a VIP player). If you want a credit card withdrawal, then your minimum cashout is $20, and your max cashout is $2,000 for a new player and $2,500 for a VIP player.
If you want a bank wire transfer, the minimum withdrawal limit is $1,500 and the maximum limit is $2,000 for a new player and $9,500 for a VIP player. Users are limited to one withdrawal per method every 7 days.

Summary

Slots.lv is a site designed for Americans and, to a lesser extent, Canadians. People from most other countries are likely to find better play options at the big UK and continental European gaming sites. US players who want a solid set of table games and quirky online slots, this site is going to be far up the list.

I would like to see more payment options. I understand that American Express and PayPal aren’t going to support transactions for a website skirting the UIGEA. Neteller tries not to offend the U.S. government these days, while Skrill pulled out of the Canadian market a year or two ago, so that explains why two major options aren’t available.

But I still wish a few quicker withdrawal options existed.
