Dr Slot Mobile Casino Review
Today we’re reviewing one of the newer kids on the block in the world of online gaming. Dr Slot is a mobile casino created and operated by Intouch Games, a UK and Romania based company. Dr Slot is still only 6 months old as a website, but Intouch have some longstanding pedigree and so they have quickly gained traction in the competitive world of online gaming.
But when it comes down to it, are they any good? We thought we’d dive in and put them to the test so you know if Dr Slot is the place to be, or one to avoid. Let’s make an account and run you through it!
The first part of every online gambling process is always annoying and dull. We all want to get to doing what we came there for: playing some cool games. Worrying about too much preamble or nonsense to start is not fun. Thankfully, Dr Slot seems to know this too as creating an account was obvious, straight forward and quick. That’s three ticks off the bat. Just download the app, start it up, sign up, and enter the activation code you get sent. Job done.
Then come the bonuses. We’ve always got time for those, and Dr Slot don’t disappoint. We got 20 free spins straight away locked to Super Fruit Bandit. We’re not certain if that’s the case for everyone, but we tried twice and got the same game both times. It’s an update on your classic fruit machine that ran smoothly and was a decent showing, but we would maybe have liked our first game to be showing off the more interesting and exciting designs Dr Slot has to offer.
After that we had to deposit £10 or more if we wanted the second half of the welcome bonus. Dr Slot give you 10 free spins for 10 days to keep you coming back, adding up to a total of 100 free spins. That’s pretty great value.
Dr Slot also do a pretty hefty first five deposit match deal. Here’s a quick run-down:
- 1st: 200% deposit match (£50 max bonus)
- 2nd: 100% deposit match (£100 max bonus)
- 3rd: 50% deposit match (£200 max bonus)
- 4th: 50% deposit match (£200 max bonus)
- 5th: 25% deposit match (£450 max bonus)
Between the free spins and the deposit matches, that’s plenty of bonuses to keep you happy.
Bear in mind though that T&Cs always apply to all bonuses. Especially take note of the 40x wagering requirement on bonus credit. That means you’ll have to make a £2 bonus survive through £80 worth of spins if you want to turn it into real cash. It’s seems a lot but it’s the norm in the industry these days.
The bonuses don’t just stop after that, though. There’s a fair few bonuses and promotions available to existing players. These include bonuses on new game releases (happens monthly); weekly loyalty bonuses by text (we haven’t received any yet but our account is still only a few days old); refer-a-friend bonuses (click the buttons on the app or website to start this); and Facebook competitions – Dr Slot run a very active page with new competitions and prizes being given away almost daily.
Remember, the 40x wagering requirements and other T&Cs apply to these bonuses too, so make sure you read up on these.
What about the games?
We are happy to report we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of games available on Dr Slot. They have a strong roster of varied games and game types, particularly considering they’re such a new brand.
We strongly recommend their slot game “Fire and Gold”. It’s a really solid piece of work, with great graphics, animations and some really satisfying mini-games. We loved the multiplier wheel spinner with the added face-off between your warrior dwarf and an evil dragon. The wheel has a “heat up” option where, if landed on, all multipliers on the wheel are increased meaning a chance of even bigger wins! It’s just straight-up fun to watch, even if you lose.
In terms of non-slot machine games, Dr Slot does fall a bit flat. But then slot is in their name, so it’s not unexpected. They only have their 3d Roulette, which is plenty of fun if you like Roulette games, but I assume wouldn’t be pulling in the most customers. It definitely could do with some bingo or blackjack, but they’ll probably be coming in later months.
All in all, colourful and very entertaining, and a nice break from those repeated games on other sites shipped in from NetEnt and the like.
Here comes the slightly boring stuff, but bear with us because you’ll be thanking me for trying everything out for you. Plus, if you get lucky and win one of those huge progressive jackpots, you’re going to care plenty about how their withdrawals work!
Here’s the key points we found on our deposit and withdrawal journey:
- You can deposit either through the Dr Slot app or on their website
- You can deposit from £3 if you use the pay by phone bill option. However, this will be added to your next month’s bill if you’re on contract, and you’ll need to provide proof that this has been paid off before any winnings can be processed. So if you want any winnings to go through fast, consider other options
- They accept deposits by debit/credit card, Skrill and Paysafecard that are £5 or more
- There’s no minimum withdrawal to reach, but as withdrawals below £10 will be subject to a £3 processing fee, there’s no point trying to withdraw less than £3!
- You can withdraw by bank transfer and Skrill, or any card you’ve previously used to deposit
- It takes 3-4 working days (not counting weekends and the day of the request) for withdrawals to be processed, and then you may be asked for ID. This is slower than many casinos, but that’s probably just because they’re a new brand. Fingers crossed they speed this up
- You can send in your ID through the app or email it
- Once you’ve sent in ID, your payment should be with you pretty sharpish
Security & Responsible Gambling
Responsible gambling is everything in a casino’s reputation. If they don’t act like they should, then we don’t want to know, and neither should you. Dr Slot is a GamCare approved casino, which means they adhere to some strict standards and must do some good work when it comes to promoting only responsible forms of gambling.
There are various tools available to help players who may be struggling. These include session and deposit limits, cool-down periods, self-exclusion, GamStop and also access to advice and support via GamCare.
Rest assured that Dr Slot use 256-bit TLSv1.2 digital encryption to keep sensitive data under lock and key. So there’s definitely no need to worry they’re less secure just because they’re a little smaller than other sites.
The same goes for fairness on their in-house developed games. Dr Slot is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and any game they make has to go for independent testing and be awarded a certificate before it can be released to the public. It goes off to be checked over for any funny business by the UKGC. Dr Slot also displays the RTP for each game on the website, so they’re into keeping transparent.
Help & Support
Dr Slot has a UK-based call centre to provide customer support to its players. They are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That’s helpful as we’re not likely to be gaming during office hours.
Dr Slot’s app makes it quick and easy – there’s a support menu that you can use to access live chat or ask for a call back. You don’t have to use the app though, so here are a few details you might need:
- 01384 445435
- Text SUPPORT to 84901 for a free call back
- UK Gambling Commission license number: 000-002091-R-104264-022
As small as they might be, Dr Slot are doing a lot to compete with some of the bigger players in the mobile gaming arena. Their slots are fun, entertaining, and most importantly unique to their site, meaning you won’t be seeing any boring repeated games from elsewhere. They seem to have a creative and caring attitude towards their games and to responsible gaming. You get the vibe that, while they’re still looking to make money, they aren’t greedy and won’t be laying any traps to keep your cash. They know trust and building a community of loyal players is more important. We just hope that they keep their foot to the floor and bring out more new games, speed up bank processing times, and expand their roster to a more varied selection of casino favourites. We want some poker!
