Jackpot Jones Review
Jackpot Jones’ virtual ship,launched in February 2018 by Nektan, now sails the World Wide Web carrying slots from some of the best software developers out there. Step aboard and you’ll be offered up to 100 spins on the house, with a few additional surprises made available once you become a fully-fledged crew member.
Jackpot Jones Review: board a pirate ship
First Impressions: Ahoy, me Hearties!
Cap’n Chris Jones was apparently a man from Wales who, unsatisfied with his pirate lifestyle, decided to chuck it all and head to Manchester to open his very own casino. If you’re doubting the safety of a gambling venue owned by a former buccaneer, licenses issued by the Government of Gibraltar and the UKGC should be more than enough to secure your peace of mind. The pirate-themed website uses the familiar Nektan layout with simple menus you’ll find very easy to use.
Welcome Spins with Unusually Low Wagering Requirements
Unlike many of its competitors, Jackpot Jones isn’t handing over bonus cash. However, that doesn’t mean he’ll not welcome new passengers with a special gift. There’s 100 Free Spins with your name on them, and all you have to do is make 3 initial deposits worth at least £10 each. The first will get you 10 spins on Gonzo’s Quest, the second between 10 and 50 spins (depending on the size of your deposit), and the third another 10 to 40 spins. Unusually modest for a greedy pirate, Jones asks that you wager the resulting winnings only once, that’s right – wager your winnings one time only, blimey!

Few Freebies to Go Around
Let’s see if the captain is equally generous to his crew as he is to new passengers. Randomly selected shipmates will receive a gift of £5 to £10 on Tuesdays, while depositing £20 or more on Wednesdays allows anybody to claim 20 spins on Cleopatra. Weekly Loyalty Cash Bonus promises to get 10% of your losses back, up to an amount of £250, but stipulates that you must first deposit at least £100 and lose even more. Those who prove worthy will receive an invite to join Cap’n Jones motley pirate crew and get to share booty comprised of enhanced VIP promotions, weekly loyalty cash bonuses, anniversary bonuses, and more.
Deposits & Withdrawals: Generous List of Payment Options
Crowding at the very bottom of the website are logos of numerous banking options Jackpot Jones makes available. You are offered to deposit a minimum of £10 with the help of Visa, MasterCard, Visa Electron or Maestro, Skrill, Neteller or PayPal, Trustly, Sofort, GiroPay, PaySafeCard, Zimpler or Boku. Related conditions are typical of all Nektan-powered sites, meaning one can make only one withdrawal per 24-hour period and collect a maximum of £2,000 per day and £5,000 per month.

Small but Diverse Gaming Catalogue
While Jones managed to pile up only 220 games or so, he made sure his portfolio is as diverse as possible. You’ll recognise products developed by NetEnt, Microgaming, Nyx, Core Gaming, Big Time Gaming, IGT, WMS, Blueprint Gaming, Iron Dog, Rabcat, Barcrest, and several other providers, Nektan included. Demo button is available if you want to play for free, and an RNG certified by NMI guarantees all outcomes are completely random.
Jackpot Jones Review: Video Slots
Yes, the omnipresent Aloha, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Da Vinci Diamonds, Foxin’ Wins, Rainbow Riches and the likes are all accounted. But you probably know them inside out, so let’s talk about a few not as famous but equally interesting titles. Barcrest’s Magic Ian features expanding reels, Feature Gamble, Teleport Spins making a second set of reels magically appear on the top part of the screen, and many, many other refreshing specials. Snow Leopard by WMS offers hundreds of free spins, Wild reels, and Big Bet option which buys you extra features.

Jackpot Jones Review: Classic Slots
If there are any classic slots among this bunch, I’ve not seen them. Sorry, guys, but not having a dedicated filter for this particular category has finally done me in and I simply refuse to spend ages trying to find (potentially non-existent) 3-reelers.
Jackpot Jones Review: Jackpot Games
Looking at 6-figure jackpots increasing in value each second makes you want to try them, even if you’re one of it-will-never-happen-to-me individuals. After all, what’s a few pounds when you’ve got an opportunity to snatch £600,000+ by playing Progressive jackpot games such as of Golden Goddess, Wolf Run and Cleopatra?
Jackpot Jones Review: Live Games
Live dealers will welcome you at a couple of Live Roulette and Blackjack tables provided by Extreme Gaming, but it’s clear live gaming is not Jackpot Jones’ focus area.

Jackpot Jones Review: Video Poker
Video Poker games have not yet made it to Jones’ ship, perhaps he’ll pick some up on his next stop.

Customer Support: Awake by Day, Sleeps at Nights
Jackpot Jones’ team works daily from 8:00 to midnight (GMT) so you’re welcome to launch Live Chat or give them a call should you happen to be playing during their working hours. Those visiting at night have a choice of either sending an email or waiting until the crew wakes up. I’d advise that they use this time to read through a detailed FAQ list the good captain has made available.
Desktop or Mobile?
Jackpot Jones will follow you around as long as you’ve got an iPhone / iPad or Android smartphone or tablet. Simple website layout makes it relatively easy to transport the whole package to smaller touch screens without having to make too many changes. Seeing what seems to be an identical choice of games as on PCs is a welcome surprise.

Jackpot Jones Review: Conclusion
The fact that all Nektan sites look alike is not necessarily a bad thing as you’ll know exactly what to expect even when you visit one of their casinos for the very first time. Still, it would be nice to occasionally see a bit more creativity. While pirate theme has been nicely implemented, the choice of games is disappointingly limited, especially when it comes to categories other than slots. The best element of the Casino’s promotional portfolio is uniquely low play-through requirements linked to their welcome offer. One can’t complain when it comes to choice of payment options, but not many are going to appreciate low maximum withdrawal limits. Last but not least: please hire additional support agents so that your players can receive immediate assistance no matter when they encounter a problem. Really, Jones, it’s in your best interest.
