Jackpot Fruity Casino Review
*This casino is now closed
Jackpot Fruity was launched in 2017 by renowned casino group 888 Holdings. Aiming to make it “the hottest online casino of the UK”, the team has sourced products from popular software providers like NetEnt, NYX, Quickspin and iSoftbet and created a gaming library focused on slots. The Casino is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission as well as the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority, and was deemed trustworthy enough to be allowed to use AskGamblers’ Safe&Fair stamp.
bold, fun and simple
First Impressions: Bold and Simple
I see an eye-catching promo slider, simple menus with big, bold letters, and plenty of text created to convince me this is the best place to play online casino games. Prominently placed logo indicates there will be plenty of interesting slots to wager on and numerous hefty jackpots to be won. Ok, I’m in!
Welcome Bonus: Play with up to £1,500 of the Casino’s Money
Jackpot Fruity is one of those rare gaming sites willing to treat you to a freebie as soon as you register. They’ll give you 10 free spins on Irish Luck with wins capped at £5. A deposit of only £10 unlocks the Casino’s welcome package worth up to £1,500 in bonuses. Having made the very first money transfer, you’ll become eligible for a 100% bonus up to £500 plus 25 free spins. The next two payments qualify for a 50% match up to £500 each. Deposit plus bonus have to be wagered 40x (a bit high) before asking for cash to be sent the other way. The maximum withdrawable value is £400 for each of the above offers plus the initial bonus amount granted. Free spin winnings are capped at £10 and subject to 70x play-through (ouch!). Slots, Scratch Cards and Keno contribute 100%, while betting on table games and video pokers doesn’t help at all.

Other Promotions: VIPs Have More Fun
Even though the operator claims to be offering regular weekly and monthly promotions, none of these are currently visible. Referring a friend can earn you £10 in bonus funds, and every £2 wagered will get you one loyalty chip. Chips are redeemable at the rate of 1,000 for £1 in bonus cash. The only other budget-boosting opportunity I could find was an invitation-only VIP program. Whether you get invited or not depends on your monthly activity and playing history (which I guess means that you have to visit very often and gamble loads of money), but if you happen to be a VIP elsewhere, feel free to contact the Casino and demand access to exclusive cash bonuses, weekly free spins and cashbacks, and higher withdrawal limits.
Deposits & Withdrawals: Exclusive UK Options
The operator accepts deposits made via Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, Entropay, PaySafeCard and Wire Transfer. UK punters are also able to use ApplePay and make payments with the help of an iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad or Mac. One can deposit or cash out a minimum of £10 and request up to 10 withdrawals per day (though I’m not sure why you’d want to). Payout processing takes up to 48 hours.

Over 500 Games from Multiple Providers
This is a Flash casino so you won’t have to bother with tiresome downloads. You will have to register even to play for free, and once you do, the layout changes completely. Filtering options have been clearly designed by someone who has never played online casino games – the only options are to sort by provider and search by name, and the only tabs available are “new”, “most played”, “jackpots” and “all”. Games have been supplied by familiar developers such as NetEnt, NYX, Eyecon, Quickspin, iSoftbet, PariPlay, WMS, IGT, Realistic Games, Blueprint Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Merkur, Bally, Gamevy, Leander and Ainsworth, less known Gaming Realms and Xplosive, and some even I’ve never heard off (Electrocoin, Gameiom).
Jackpot Fruity stocks many familiar titles and among them Starburst, Guns ‘n Roses, Raging Rhino, Fluffy Favourites, Foxin’ Wins, Cleopatra, Bonanza, Rainbow Riches and Monopoly series. But rather than go for something you’ve played zillion times before, why not try Chitty Bang which uses a unique reel configuration, or Second Strike with a lucrative feature activated every time you land a winning combination?

Unless they know the name of the classic they’re looking for, fans will struggle to find something to their taste. I spotted a few options likely to please them, namely Big Wheel, Jackpot Jester 50,000, Jackpot 6,000, Red Hot Wild and 7’s To Burn.
Jackpot chasers should be the happiest of all – the Casino offers as many as 50 progressive jackpot slots.
Though landing page indicated there would be a few NetEnt live dealer games to play, once you sign in they all disappear. What the heck?
Deuces Wild. That’s all.
Among the alternative gaming options you’ll find a few Scratch Cards, Keno, Crossword Cash, Boss The Lotto, Noughts & Crosses and Slingo Deal Or No Deal. Nerves Of Steal game features a board with 50 squares and prompts you to locate 10 Casino Chips in order to win a jackpot. Every failed attempt will cost you a life and decrease the prize, and every success increases the reward and resets number of lives to four.

Customer Support: Phone or Email
You won’t be able to learn much from the world’s shortest FAQ list but there is a dedicated customer support team able to answer all your questions. Toll-free UK number is operated between 10am to 2am and email queries answered within 72 hours.
Desktop or Mobile
I access the Casino using an Android smartphone and login with same credentials, and for a second or two, I feel lost. The website looks different, and amazingly enough, features better filtering options than the desktop version. Still, it’s the same site with almost identical offering, it’s just suffering an identity crises.
is this the same website?
Jackpot Fruity is an unusual gaming site and I’m not sure that’s a good thing. The unnecessary transformations happening between the landing page and the lobby and desktop to mobile version are very confusing. User interface is not at all friendly, choice of games other than slots very limited, wagering requirements incredibly high and promotional offering modest. It’s annoying that one has to go through ID verification process before any games can be launched. This is certainly not what I’d expect from a casino operated by 888 Holdings and I’m seriously suspecting a hacker got in and messed up the whole thing.
