Jackpot City Casino
Of all the real money gaming sites on the web, Jackpot City is one of the best established. The site has been around since 1998, and is rapidly approaching its twentieth birthday.
They offer over 300 games, which we'll talk more about below, including table games as well as a huge range of slots and other titles. They also accept Canadian players, so you'll have no issues signing up if you decide to give them a try.
One assumes that the "Jackpot City" the site refers to is Las Vegas as visitors to the site, and players after they've finished their Jackpot City download, are met with evocative photos of the iconic neon glitz of Sin City.
In our Jackpot City review, which you'll find below, we talk about everything from the signup process and claiming a Jackpot City bonus to the games themselves and how easy it is to make a withdrawal.
Jackpot City Bonus & Promotions
With a 100% match bonus on your first three deposits (up to $400, $200 and $100 respectively), players stand to enjoy up to $1600 worth of free play when they claim the Jackpot City welcome bonus available to new players.
Wagering requirements are pretty hefty, at 50x the value of the initial deposit/bonus figure, but it's important to note that most online casinos base their wagering requirements on the value of the deposit PLUS the bonus figure.
In reality, this means that the Jackpot City bonus requirements work out to about 25x the combined value of the deposit and bonus. This is about par for the course as wagering requirements go.
Not all games count fully towards unlocking the wagering requirements:
- Keno, slots and scratch cards – 100%
- Classic blackjack and All Aces video poker – 2%
- All other blackjack and video poker variants – 10%
- Most other games (roulette, craps, Red Dog etc.) don't count towards them at all
Clearly, unless you're a slots fiend, you're best off sticking with a blackjack variant if you want to have any hope of unlocking the full value of the bonus. You've got a couple of months to do that, so it is possible if you have a bit of luck on your side.
Software & The Range Of Games
Jackpot City has been delivering top ranked online gambling for almost 20 years and offers some of the largest welcome bonuses in the world.
Both the Jackpot City Flash/instant play and download versions use Microgaming, which is one of the top casino software providers around.
If you choose to use the Jackpot City download client, you'll enjoy the experience of playing with Microgaming's highly polished bug-free software. You'll also be able to jump straight on and be playing a few hands of blackjack, or any of Jackpot City's other games, in a matter of seconds.
Meanwhile, the instant play/no download equivalent offers almost as many games and offers graphics and performance that are pretty much on par with the Jackpot City download client.
Here's a quick look at some of the games you can expect to find at Jackpot City:
- American Roulette
- European Roulette
- French Roulette
- Red Dog
- Roulette Royale – Progressive
- Slots (including Avalon, Break Da Bank, Lucky Leprechaun, The Dark Knight, Game of Thrones, The Osbournes and many more)
* Blackjack is one of the areas in which Jackpot City really shines. They have over 40 versions of the game to choose from, many of which have a house edge that's comparable with, or even better than, the original when played with perfect strategy.
Jackpot City is eCOGRA certified and is authorized and licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta. You can, therefore, rest assured that it's safe to play with real money at Jackpot City as they are subject to regular inspections and audits.
They're partnered with Datacash Ltd, a global payment processing company that's been part of MasterCard since 2010, and guarantee that all credit card and personal information is encrypted when deposits and withdrawals are made.
Jackpot City has a payout percentage of 97.48%. This doesn't mean that you're guaranteed to get back 97.48 CAD for every 100 you spend, but is yet another good indicator that the site is above board.
While there's no Jackpot City mobile app, players can still enjoy playing on their smartphone or tablet by visiting the site from their iPhone, Windows Phone or Android device.
Rather than creating dedicated apps for each smartphone/tablet platform, Jackpot City offers a mobile optimized version of their site for players on the move. This can be accessed by using an existing Jackpot City account, and allows access to a great range of real money games including:
- Video Poker
- About 40 or 50 slots titles, including progressive jackpot games
The Jackpot City mobile offering doesn't boast quite as much choice as their main site, but it's still better than what many other online gambling sites have to offer.
Here's another area in which Jackpot City shines.
With very quick support (offered in a range of different languages) available by phone, including a Canadian toll-free number, 24 hours a day in many locations and live chat support, you should have no trouble getting some help if you run into an issue with the site.
