Calling itself the ‘city of slots’ and seemingly basing its online world up in the clouds, Slotty Casino has been designed with mobile users in mind. And seeing as the casino has only been with us since 2017, this strategy makes perfect sense.
The casino holds two of the most coveted licences (UKGC and MGA), too, so we know they play fair. But, let’s see if this Canadian-friendly casino leaves us feeling like we’re on cloud nine.
Sloty Welcome Bonus
Sloty’s welcome offer for new players in Canada is split into four parts, covering your first four deposits at the casino. Just be sure to enter the appropriate bonus codes. Here’s what you get:
- First deposit: 100% up to C$300 and 300 free spins
- Second deposit: 50% up to C$400 (Bonus code: WSLOTY2)
- Third deposit: 25% up to C$400 (Bonus code: WSLOTY3)
- Fourth deposit: 25% up to C$400 (Bonus code: WSLOTY4)
By far the best of these offers is the first one, which not only gives you the most bang for your buck with it’s 100% match deposit bonus but also gives you 300 free spins for Fire Joker.
Players wanting to max out the offer can claim the full C$1,500 in bonus funds, so long as they meet the wagering requirements (see below) and ensure they enter the correct bonus codes.
Sloty isn’t satisfied with just getting new punters in the door. They’re also keen to entice you to hang around during the coming weeks, months and years. That’s no bad thing in our books, because you have even more chances to boost your bankroll. To achieve this brand loyalty, you’ll find fantastic promotions launching on a weekly basis all year round. These include Happy Hour offers on selected days, Weekend Specials and Extra Mile Monthly Bonuses. In short, then, it’s well worth keeping an eye on the promotions page to see what’s coming up next.
The minimum possible deposit at the casino is C$10, which is more than fine. This includes the welcome bonuses. However, it must be noted that the wagering requirements are a little harsh, in our opinion. For example, the wagering requirements are a relatively high 40X, although this only covers the bonus amount and not the deposit as some casinos like to tie in. But another alarm bell went off when we noticed that all wagering must be completed within 14 days – most other casinos allow at least 30 days for this, so we were a little dismayed at the lack of time.
Note that not all games were created equal. Most slots contribute 100% towards the wagering requirements. However, those under the ‘Classic Slots’ category only contribute 75%. This then drops to 10% and 5% for table games and video poker respectively. Jackpot slots and Live Casino games sadly do not count towards satisfying your wagering requirements at all.
All the main providers are in the Sloty roster, including big hitters such as NetEnt, Microgaming, Play’n Go, NYX and Evolution. This gives you access to some of the hottest slots in the business, like the perennially popular games Starburst, Book of Dead, Hugo, Fire Joker and Super Flip. There’s even a category for ‘Classic Slots’ if you’re hankering after some nostalgia from the good ol’ days.
For those who are chasing the ultimate big win (and we imagine early retirement), there are numerous progressive jackpots to go for. In fact, Sloty has a games category dedicated to ‘Must Fall Jackpots’, so if you get your timing absolutely perfect, there’s a chance you could be sailing around the world on a luxury yacht. All the major jackpots are represented here, including Mega Moolah, Divine Fortune and Hall of Gods, to name but a few.
Sloty Live Casino
For those who want a little bit more realism and to experience the thrill of a real life casino, Sloty has you covered with an extensive library of live casino games. Supplied by NetEnt and Evolution, these HD quality streams put you right in the heart of the action, where you can interact with the croupiers as you play a few rounds of roulette, blackjack or baccarat (with American, European and VIP versions of each of these classic casino games available).
Additionally, there are a few oddball table games available, too. These include titles like Dream Catcher, Live Football Studio and Super Sic Bo. So whatever your preference, you’re sure to find a live game and a dealer that suits you perfectly. Plus, as most of the games are available 24 hours a day, you’ll never have to look at a real casino’s opening times ever again.
As mentioned earlier, Sloty seems setup for mobile players more than it is for desktop players (the site looks a bit weird on a huge iMac screen, for example). But this means that players who prefer to do their gaming on a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad or Android are in for a hell of ride. The site just works so well on mobile devices that we were seriously impressed.
There are no dedicated apps available, either for Android or iOS. However, using the browser-based version from any of the many devices we tried more than sufficed for our gaming needs – this included depositing, withdrawing and contacting the multilingual support team.
Sloty customer support
The site is so well constructed for Canucks that they not only offer Canadian English, but also Canadian French, which is something we’ve never seen before. The FAQ section can be found in the Support area of the site, on both desktop and mobile, and this serves well enough for the most rudimentary questions. There’s even a search function for accessing the FAQs.
When the FAQs don’t quite answer your question right away, there’s always the excellent customer support team. While there’s no live chat available (as is the case almost everywhere else), Sloty does offer Canadians a local number to call for support: 16478480250.
For non-urgent questions, you can always wing an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org or to lodge a complaint for whatever reason, you can use email@example.com instead.
Both methods are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
Deposit & withdrawals
This casino offers many different payment methods and nails it for the Candian market with the inclusion of iDebit. This is by far the cheapest, hassle-free way to fund your account and to (hopefully) withdraw your winnings. Other options include Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, ecoPayz, Paysafecard, Entropay, Giropay, Trustly and Zimpler.
What was less clear, however, was how long each method takes. So while some of them were approved within a couple of hours, others took as long as three to four days. To get an exact figure for your chosen payment method, we recommend contacting support for more info.
Sloty Casino Review – conclusion
If you’re a mobile player, Sloty could be the perfect option for you. The desktop experience was far from optimal, but we applaud the forward-thinking, mobile-first approach. Canucks get great service in terms of payment options and the fact that players can choose to see the site in Canadian English and Canadian French is almost too good to be true. Add to this the excellent range of games, super helpful support team and world class live casino experience, and we’re ready to recommend Sloty Casino to you.
