My name is Simmo and some of you will already know me from Slotjunkies or Casinomeister. I look after this WMS slots website too and have been playing at their online casino since it was launched in January 2011. This is my Jackpot Party Casino review which I revisit and update every few months.
No doubt the Jackpot Party brand from WMS Gaming will be familiar to US slots fans already as it is named after their (in!)famous Jackpot Party progressive slot machines which are common in Vegas, Atlantic City and beyond.
The irony however, is that while WMS and the Jackpot Party brand are well known in the US and in several other countries, they are little known in the UK and at launch, the UK was the only jurisdiction that was allowed to play the WMS slot games online! Since then, Jackpot Party have also started taking players from Ireland, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, the Channel Islands and the Isle Of Man.
So to the casino itself. I signed up and started playing there since the day WMS launched Jackpot Party. Being a regularly visitor to Vegas I was already familiar with games like Star Trek and Zeus (no online version of Zeus II though as I write unfortunately - I think it is still being developed) so I was looking forward to playing the slots online.
In a nutshell, WMS are running a very tight ship, no doubt conscious of the fact that they have very valuable land-based licences to protect. This is mostly good news for players as it means you're dealing with a casino and company that is very keen to do things the right way. On the downside it can mean that sometimes things are a little bit "by the book" although I've noticed that more on the affiliate side of things.
Jackpot Party Casino's plus points, aside from the excellent slot games, are the fact that cashouts are done within 24hrs, they only ask for ID when you hit a deposit threshold (I'd guess I was asked at aound thhe £3k mark), support is responsive and everything on the site is very clear. They also allow you to set deposit limits in your account and have multiple deposit methods.
I wouldn't say that their table games are great - they are supplied by Realtime Gaming - but perfectly adequate I guess. To be honest you don't join Jackpot party for table games anyway. It's all about the slots after all.
I'd go as far as to say that Jackpot Party is already one of the best casinos I have come across. This is mainly because it's a no-nonsense online casino with fantastic slot games. I hate getting messed around by casinos and in the few months I have been playing here that hasn't happened once. All very smooth and I'v had some 4-figure cashouts too.
As with any online casino I would always recommend to prospective players that they read the T&C's before depositing and Jackpot Party is no different (T&C's). This is especially pertinent if you play with bonuses as these invariably come with fairly stringent terms attached, although in Jackpot Party Casino's case they are better than average.
If I were to improve one thing it would be to add "manual flushing". Cashouts are processed around the lunchtime of the following day (except at weekends) which is good but in that time gap you can reverse winnings and play them - I'm not a fan of that as I think it encourages irresponsible gambling so I think players should have the option.
In all other respects though I have no hesitation in recommending Jackpot Party - which is just as well as this is the ONLY place you can play WMS slots online right now ;-)
