With online casino availability being very limited in the United States, there is an online casino that is approaching its 20th anniversary – and can be accessed by American players from the comfort of their own homes. That casino, SlotoCash, has been in business since 2007 so it has a long history of giving serious casino players their money’s worth.
All you need to do if you live in the United States is to go to www.slotocash.im or Google “SlotoCash” and click on the link to see their organized game layout. Once you are there you can choose to play from your browser or download the software to your computer. There is also an Instant Play option that you can use to get started immediately after making a deposit. A quick look at the menu has the main options easily accessed, including making a deposit, current promotions, the tournament section, and the exclusive VIP club. Look up to the left and there you will find the FAQ and Support options. You will also find the Live Dealer option, so if you have been reading older reviews you will either not find this option mentioned or find it listed as a criticism of SlotoCash. It pays to read the most up-to-date reviews from people who have actually gone on to the website. The type of games you can play are the standard faire for many casinos: • Slots - including video poker, 5 reel slots, and there are new slots regularly added • Table games – both American and European versions are available for select games • Keno • Bingo • Scratch cards • Progressives The casino is powered by Realtime Gaming (RTG) software, which is found on a large number of online casinos and has a proven track record of being dependable and reliable. All this means that once you make your move to play at SlotoCash you can safely and legally play from your home in the United States.
Just because it is one of the few quality online casinos available for Americans does not mean you should not expect to get the standard sign up bonuses offered to everyone else. And SlotoCash does not disappoint, as they have some excellent first time player bonuses, including a 5 tier bonus for your first 5 deposits as they are promoting their Winter Welcome Slots Deposit Bonus: Your 1st deposit gets you a 100% bonus plus 100 free spins Your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th deposits get you a 100% bonus plus 50 free spins each Your 5th deposit gets you a 177% bonus plus 50 free spins In plain English, this means you double your deposit on your first four deposits and almost triple your money on the 5th and final Winter Welcome bonus. They also have 50% and 100% bonuses up to $500 for future deposits.
If you choose not to accept any of their bonus offers, you can get a 25% cash back bonus instead. Of course, this is not available once you accept any of the other player bonus options, even if you decide to stop accepting the other bonus offers. The biggest difference is the playthrough requirements for each bonus promotion, so read the fine print carefully before deciding. Finally, no casino can be taken seriously without having comp points. At SlotoCash, every dollar you wager earns a certain number of comp points. The simple math is that the more you play, the more com points you stack up. Comp points can then be converted to cash when specific levels are reached. The lowest level is 100 accumulated comp points.
Now it’s time to talk about where the action really is – the games themselves. Since everyone has different games they like to play, we will give a general overview of their games with some select specifics. You are encouraged to go to the SlotoCash website and browse through all their games and play your favorites. The Realtime Gaming software used by SlotoCash was mentioned earlier, but what is even better is you can play SlotoCash on virtually any smartphone or tablet. That means if you are on a hot streak you don’t have to stop playing and end your run. First, the Slots options are great, with the two largest groups being the 5 reel slots and bonus slots (who doesn’t like bonus slots?). They also have a few 6 reel slots if you are in the mood to try something newer. Video Poker is a separate section here, though some casinos put them in their slots section. Some of the more popular, innovative video poker games such as Loose Deuces and Mystery Bonus Poker can be played with the number of hands ranging from 1 up to 100. There is a nice selection of Table Games, including European Blackjack and Caribbean Style Hold ‘Em Poker. Almost 20 different tale games are available to choose from, so there is a very good chance you will find something that suits your style of play. No respectable casino would not have Tournaments available for players. SlotoCash is no different, as they have a separate tab for Tournaments on their main page. Clicking on it will take you to a table of tournaments that pay out anywhere from $25 to $1000 – all with no buy in!
There are some limitations on playing SlotoCash on mobile devices, though this should not affect many people. But the information is provided so you know this review tries to be upfront with its evaluation. Kindle tablets and Blackberrys cannot be used to play games, nor can Samsung Galaxy S2 devices. There is also some restriction on what games you can play because not all games have been converted over for mobile play. But SlotoCash is continuing to work on the conversion and you can expect in the future that the most popular games will soon be available for Android and iOS platforms.
SlotoCash does have minimum wagering requirements for table games as is normal practice at every casino. However, there are also minimum wagering requirements when you choose to accept bonus promotions regardless of the type of game you are playing. Before you can withdraw any of your winning you must first meet the playthrough requirements. Because the requirements are subject to change you need to check the casino’s bonus conditions before accepting and understand them completely to save yourself a lot of stress. A recent example of a SlotoCash wagering requirement is 30 times the bonus plus the deposit for the first part of the 5 tier bonus, and 25 times the bonus plus the deposit for every other part. Also, not all games that you play apply to these requirements, so again, read the bonus rules carefully. Once you have completed the bonus wagering requirements, or if you are not playing under any bonus conditions, you are free to roam around the casino and rack up com points playing any SlotoCash game.
Believe it or not, SlotoCash accepts Visa and MasterCard for deposits. There are several other deposit options, all which allow withdrawals. Visa and MasterCard deposits require a check or wire transfer type of withdrawal, the wire transfers costing $50 each. Be aware that a Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card is a bank card and subject to the rules and restrictions of the issuing bank. SlotoCash can only control its end of the transaction, so if your card is rejected or you have problems with your bank, you need to contact the bank for any potential resolution. Requests for withdrawals are processed within 73 hours from the time of the request, but are only processed on business days. The processing of checks can take up to 15 business days. There are limits on withdrawals both on the amount you can withdraw in a single transaction (minimum $100-$150) and the number of withdrawals you can take per week (1).
Consistent with the major online casino practice of offering excellent customer support, SlotoCash has a toll free number you can contact, an email address to write, and live chat services available at various times of the day. Remember that your time of day is not likely to be the same as theirs, so you may want to call first and find out hours of availability.
