1xSlots Casino Review100% / £300 + 150 Free Spins
First impressions matter in life and when it comes to choosing a good online casino. Unfortunately, the first impression that 1xSlots Casino gave to our expert reviewer – the esteemed Casino Gorilla – was not a good one. For a start, the casino is called ‘1xSlots’ but the url is ‘1xslot.com’. It may seem like a small thing but details are important when you are handing over your hard-earned cash. When you do enter the casino, the design is extremely cluttered and has so much going on that the Casino Gorilla was tempted to put on his sunglasses to dim the glare from the screen. So first impressions are important, but they’re not everything. Let’s see what else the Casino Gorilla discovered from his investigations.

There are a vast array of slot games available at this casino with an enormous amount of providers supplying them. Some of these are famous names like NetEnt, Microgaming, Elk and Play n’ GO while others not so much: GII365, BBIIN, betiXon, Habenero and Fugaso, for example. However, concerns have been raised as to whether the games from major suppliers are genuine due to the fact that they would not normally provide their games to what looks like an unlicensed casino. The games that the Casino Gorilla has picked out gives you an idea of the random mixture of popular favourites and games you will probably never have heard of in your life. How many of these do you recognise:
- Three Star Gods
- Aloha Party
- Jack and the Beanstalk
- Wild Seas
- Siberian Wolf
- Fruit Warp
- Viking Gods Thor & Loki
- 300 Shields
For some reason you have to go to the Promotions section in order to find the live casino area of this casino. No idea why. When you do stumble upon it you find a large number of tables here, again coming from a wide variety of game providers. Evolution Gaming, NetEnt, Vivo Gaming, Authentic Gaming, Ezugi, and more… the gang’s all here! Most of the games are either blackjack or roulette, often distinguished by the different languages available, although there some other poker games on offer too. Judging purely on the table languages being offered, Russia and Turkey are major markets for this casino.
1xSlots is quick to advertise that it is available to both Android and Apple users. You can download the casino app by either using the QR code or just clicking the appropriate button on the main Games page. You will then be able to play a very generous number of games from your phone or tablet when you are on the move.
1xSlots Casino Welcome Bonus
The welcome bonus looks like one you may see elsewhere, this time offering a total bonus of €1,500 plus 150 free spins. However, there is a restriction in the small print which means that your bonus winnings cannot exceed the total bonus you can redeem even after wagering requirements are completed. Also the free spin offer is one of the least generous we have seen, with the free spins reduced to just one line worth 1c on a game called ‘Down the Pub’. The Gorilla is a naturally suspicious creature, and nothing about this site is sitting comfortably with him.
- 100% bonus based on first deposit up to €300 +30 spins
- 50% bonus based on first deposit up to €350 +35 spins
- 25% bonus based on first deposit up to €400 +40 spins
- 25% bonus based on first deposit up to €450 +45 spins
- Bonus expires after 30 days
- Bonus x35 wagering requirement
- Spins worth €0.01
- Spins winnings have no wagering requirement
- €10 minimum deposit.
Free spins are normally a great way to explore new games and try to make a killing with house money. And when you see that there are no wagering requirements on winnings from the free spins on offer here you may think you are in luck. However, look closer and you will see that the free spins have a value of only 1 cent per spin with only one pay-line in play. Plus you are restricted to using them on an obscure game called ‘Down the Pub’ from Playson. No matter how lucky you get, you are not going to make your fortune from 1c spins on this slot.
No bonus code is required in order to claim the welcome bonus from 1xSlots Casino. When you make your qualifying deposit you will automatically receive your bonus, and this is spread across the first four deposits that you make. If a bonus code is required in order for you to accept a future bonus then you will be informed. You would then have to enter this code in the space provided on the deposit page.
There is a staggeringly large number of payment options available at 1xSlots Casino. It is no exaggeration to say that there are around 200 different payment methods available at this site – it is quite an incredible sight! Many of these are aimed at the Russian and Turkish markets, which gives a further idea as to where a lot of this site’s business comes from. However, as this casino appears to be unlicensed or at best subject to the less-than-strict Cypriot regulators, they will accept players from all over the world. No fewer than 16 of the payment methods are different cryptocurrencies, a popular option for those who do not want to be too public when it comes to online gambling. If nothing else, the sheer quantity of payment methods shows that this site is extremely keen on your being able to deposit!
Security and Fairness
The Casino Gorilla has got some pretty major concerns about the security of this site. Casinomeister is one of the most respected casino review sites, and its review of 1xSlots Casino is so bad that it descends into sarcasm (“Jackpots: Oh really?” and so on). When you go to any online casino you should be able to scroll down to the bottom of any page to see where the casino is licensed, but there is nothing showing here. Apparently the casino is licensed in Cyprus or Curaçao, but this is not advertised and anyway neither licence is much of a reassurance for players. Approach this site with extreme caution (or not at all).
Casinomeister also had scathing comments about the customer support they received from this site, awarding it the ‘Worst Customer Support Award 2017’. That is not good. The Casino Gorilla didn’t open an account with this casino because – well because of all the security issues – but reports online about the standard of customer support are not good, describing robotic answers and delays in responses.
United States of America, the Netherlands, France, the Netherlands Antilles, and Curaçao.* *The list of restricted countries is small and given that there is no UKGC licence then the United Kingdom should certainly be added to this list, but it seems that UK players will be accepted.
The Casino Gorilla would rather give up bananas then sign up with this particular casino. Unless you are living somewhere that no other options are available, this one should be avoided. There are more red flags here than at a military procession in China. The site looks confusing and it seems that in this case that first impressions can be trusted – this site is not recommended.
