Buddy Slots Casino Review
*This is one of the brands we used to feature on the site, however for whatever reason we no longer recommend it. We kept this old review but removed any direct links to the site and advise you to pick another brand from here.
Everyone always says that dogs are man’s best friend, but we wonder whether that’ll change to Buddy Slots being man’s best friend soon. If you take a look at the flurry pawed mascot of this new casino, you’ll see why we’re certain a shift in friendship is on the horizon: this is a site that has accessibility and appeal. Having said that however, this is obviously a new label, and so many are cautious to join before knowing the company behind the brand. This is where we come in. We’re going to delve into the navy blue aesthetic of this site, to investigate all the software that lies under its surface, to look at the providers and what players can expect to find should they wish to join. Will this be your new bestie for life? It’s time to find out.
This adorably named Buddy Slots casino comes from Jumpman Gaming, a company that has many casinos under its branding, including that of another new casino called 123 Spins. By being able to see just how experienced the operators are, we can start to relax when we begin the process of signing up. We’re then relaxed further when we note the licenses, which come from two main providers: the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
Another appealing element of this casino is that gamers are able to play whenever they want it, thanks to the mobile technology utilised. Unfortunately, some customers won’t be able to play due to the restricted countries mentioned, which are displayed in the Terms and Conditions. Although we can’t list them all, we can mention that Denmark, France, and Hungary aren’t permitted to become members, as well as a fair few others.
As you may already be aware, all of the promotions have been used on other Jumpman Gaming sites, and so there’s no originality and newness in this part of the website. Even though some people would find this off putting, the transparency of the bonuses ensure that you know exactly what you’re getting into. Take the newbies, for example, there’s two specific offers that will be available to them, one that related to the Mega Reel, a bonus activated when you deposit £20, which comes with a 65x wagering requirement.
Normally at this point, we’d continue onto the other rewards, but given the fact that you might have come across them before, we wanted to take a different approach. After all, there’s more to Buddy Slots than its promotions, with its Trophies being a prime example of this.
Assuming you’re still interested in the new Buddy Slots, we’re going to take a closer look at the games and who provides them. Due to the fact that Buddy Slots is ran by a renowned company, you can expect that the partnerships they’ve been able to build are also first class. The end result is that you get titles from NextGen Gaming, NetEnt, and Microgaming, as well as several other labels, leaving us spoilt for choice. Buddy Slots might not offer the biggest range of activities you’ll ever come across, but for a new platform they’re delivering a lot of entertainment.
When you’re ready to approach the titles to play, you’ll notice that they’re nearly all slot machines, meaning that some casino users will soon tire of this label. You can forget live casino games or tabletop offerings, as they’re simply not available; all there is is good old fashioned pokies. Although we can see how this limits the target audience of Buddy Slots, we like that Buddy Slots is unashamed of the players it wishes to attract.
Just as with any other casino we’ve reviewed, we’re now going to look at the deposits and withdrawals. To initially find this information, you’ll need to read the FAQs, which details that there’s only a handful of payment options allowed, including that of PayPal and debit cards. Even though they’re popular methods, Buddy Slots offers a lot less diversity than other casinos, which some could argue as being down to its newness.
In regards to withdrawals, you’ll have to use the same sort of methods, only this time it’ll take 48 hours to process rather than be instantaneous like deposits. As for any potential fees, there aren’t any that the brand imposes, which makes this casino wonderfully accessible. However, that accessibility is reduced due to only GBP being allowed in currencies, which seems an odd choice given the countries that can play with Buddy Slots.
Finding help shouldn’t prove too hard, as Buddy Slots has three options available to you, with us not including the FAQs page at this time. The options you have before you are that of WhatsApp, a social messaging option that’ll appeal to younger users, alongside email and live chat, both of which are efficient and easy to use. What makes all of this less impressive however, is that the customer support is only open between 9:30am and 6pm. Although the service hours are reasonable, we find the loss of 24/7 places Buddy Slots at a disadvantage when compared to its competitors.
As you can see from our full review, Buddy Slots is a great startup casino, backed by a company that knows this industry inside out. Yes, it would be untrue to say that it has all the markers of a great casino, given that there’s areas for improvement, but that doesn’t take away from all that it still achieves.
If you’re a slot lover, someone who can’t resist free games and bonus rounds, this is going to be your hotspot over the coming months. Nevertheless, while we recommend this brand, we do admit that some of you may tire of this new casino quickly, due to the fact that Jumpman casinos tend to be similar in their services, with only their aesthetics ever really changing.
