Fever Slots Casino Review
Fever Slots Casino Review
Jumpman Gaming have been getting the fever for slots at this site since 2019.
Their symptoms include more than 1,000 games, from nearly 100 great quality providers, a lot of security, licensing, and safety information on the site, decent, colourful design, and a decent selection of live casino games too.
Jumpman are based in the Channel Islands, and they have a licence from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission to add to their UK Gambling Commission accreditation.
This is one of 224 – yes 224 – branded casino domains licensed to Jumpman. Around 30 of those are inactive now, but that still leaves very nearly 200 sites under their name. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with a company owning lots of premises – all real-life businesses do it in one way or another – but we have to ask if consumers who visit those sites know that they’re dealing with just one company. Is this a legitimate exercise is branding that offers consumers genuinely different products – compare Rapchic Bingo with Dove Bingo for example – or is it just a way to flood the market with a ton of sites in the hope of picking up customers that way.
We’ll have a look at that as we review fever slots, which is a brightly coloured and well-branded site. Perhaps wisely it doesn’t play too heavily on the theme of its name – illness, compulsion in most definitions – but instead delivers a nice looking and cheerful site that’s easy to get around.
Pros and Cons of Fever Slots Casino
Everyone and everything has some flaw or another, here we take a quick look at the balance sheet for Fever Slots casino.
1 – A licensed site that is safe to use
Whatever you do please never play at an unlicensed gambling site. In recent years the situation has got much simpler for UK players. In the past the UK Gambling Commission allowed regulators from other countries to issue licenses that it would accept. Now, the rules are stricter and simpler: if you don’t have a UK Gambling Commission licence you must not offer gambling services to anyone from the UK.
And if you’re from the UK you mustn’t use such a site.
Fever Slots don’t give you any worries in this respect. Like many companies in the gambling industry they are set up in an offshore (and low tax) jurisdiction, but complementing their Alderney licence is the UK GC one, reference 39175.
There are no sanctions and no settlements on the licence, so they’ve been well behaved too.
2 – What a lot of slots!
If slots raise your temperature then perhaps this site will give you a fever because it has hundreds and hundreds of them. In fact, according to the latest figures, there are over 1,000 games available to players at Fever Slots. That’s more than just standard slots too, and the variety of games is every bit as the offering from any number of much bigger sites.
3 – Simply Done
This is probably not the most well-designed site in the history of the casino industry. But we kind of like that. This is a good, simple nuts and bolts casino site: it lists the games in a number of ways, has good, clear menus and good signposting and you’ll never have an issue with knowing where to click or tap to find your way around at Fever Slots Casino.
4 – PayPal and Mobile Payments
PayPal is the best known and most trusted of all the e-wallets. Seeing its name on a site is a good sign, and Jumpman have obviously proved to PayPal that they can be trusted with a partnership.
The reality of modern slots is that most players are playing on phones, so having the Pay By Mobile logo that shows you can make quick and easy payments with a couple of screen taps is also good news. These payments can even help you to stay safe online as we’ll explain later on.
5 – Live is life
Everyone needs a live casino facility these days. The one at Fever Slots isn’t the biggest we’ve ever seen, but it’s nicely laid out and it works very well. There’s no need to look any further for decent games well presented.
There is no perfect world, and there is no perfect slots site, so here’s the downside for Fever Slots.
1 – Same old, same old
We’ve mentioned the problems with companies owning many many sites in our intro and you can see it quite clearly at Fever Slots Casino. It’s a very nice site, but if you’ve played at or even seen many other Jumpman sites you’ll be wondering what’s different beyond the colour scheme.
2 – Colour clash
Yellow and purple? Are you sure? It’s a matter of taste, but Fever Slots might cause eye strain in some of its design choices!
3 – You Require What?!
We’re used to reviewing welcome bonuses so wagering requirements don’t shock us in themselves. Wagering requirements of 65-times with all the other restrictions here do shock us a bit, to be honest.
Fever Slots Casino Games & Software
Jumpman run the site on their own framework, on which they install the games. There are games here from nearly 100 developers, and they include all of the biggest and best names in the business.
The top five suppliers are: Pragmatic Play, Playson, NetEnt, Barcrest, and Slingo Originals.
There’s a great variety of games and they’re easy to find thanks to the listing system.
As is the case at most casino sites you’ll find games ordered in a number of ways at Fever Slots. The Hot Slots list collects the current favourites, and on our visit these included:
Augusts, Fluffy favourites Slingo, Thunderstruck II, Reel King Mega, Book of Gold Double Chance, Blue Wizard Fire Blaze Jackpots, 9 Masks of Fire, Twin Spin Megaways, Medallion Megaways, and Rainbow Jackpots.
The new games at Fever Slots included: 10,001 Nights, Scroll of Egypt Twin Pays, A Tale of Elves, Slingo Lightning, Cash Encounter, Solar King, Reel Holidays, Christmas Carol Megaways, Carole of the Elves, and Lucky’s Fish and Chips.
If you want to play for the biggest prizes then you need to click the jackpots tab. There we found: Fluffy mega Jackpot, Stampede Jackpot, Fluffy Favourites Fairground, Fluffy Too Jackpot, Irish Luck, Shaman’s Dream Jackpot, Enchanted Prince Jackpot, Unicorn Bliss Jackpot, Sugar Train Jackpot, and 99 Time Jackpot.
Clicking on the Casino tab gives you a graded list of slots, usually designed to show the games that the site is most keen to promote to players. On our visit this list gave us (excluding some titles previously listed under other headings): Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure, Tsai Shen’s Gift Fire Blaze Jackpots, Legacy of the Tiger, Wild Lava Fire Blaze Jackpots Pharaoh’s Daughter, Halloween Fortune, Book of Kinds, Wild Gambler, Shields of Rome, and Adventure Trail Fire Blaze Jackpots.
Fever slots is also a bingo site. We’re not specialist bingo experts but we know there’s a big crossover between these two areas of the UK gambling scene. This can be seen at Fever Slots in the preponderance of slots that are old favourites at bingo sites in the lists of slot titles, including Fluffy Favourites, the biggest ever bingo slot.
The bingo games include 90 ball, 90 ball, and 75-ball games.
Casino Games are all listed under one section at Fever Slots, with live games mixed in with simulators.
To look at the simulators first. This is what we found:
Roulette games are always the most popular of the table games at any casino site. We found 7 versions on our visit, including Roulette, European Roulette, 20p Roulette, American Roulette, Multifire Roulette, 100/1 Roulette, and Golden Rock Studios Roulette x 2.
If you love cards you probably head for the blackjack tables first at any casino site. The mix of simplicity and sophistication and skill of this classic three-card game keeps players fascinated.
We found 8 blackjack simulator games: Vegas Downtown Blackjack, Vegas Single Deck Blackjack Multi-Hand, Vegas Strip Blackjack Multi-Hand, Vegas Downtown Blackjack, Atlantic City Blackjack, European Blackjack Multihand, Vegas Single Deck Blackjack, and Atlantic City Blackjack.
Other Casino Games at Fever Slots Casino
Solitaire and baccarat are also available to casino fans at Fever Slots casino.
Bonuses at Fever Slots Casino
No online casino site is complete without at least one bonus. Ninety-nine times out of 100 that’ll be a big welcome bonus, but most sites over more than that.
Let’s see what Fever Slots has to offer, and let’s take an honest look at bonuses behind the headlines.
Welcome Bonus at Fever Slots Casino
The welcome bonus looks great. They always do. They’re designed to do just that, to persuade you to sign up, and in doing so to commit a good deal of your time and money to a site.
The bonus at Fever Slots is delivered via a Mega Wheel Spin that is used for a number of bonuses, including later deposit bonuses.
The welcome bonus can deliver players as many as 500 free spins, in 10 sets of 50. When we visited these spins were available on the popular game, Starburst.
Then we get into the small print. The most you can win from each set of 10 spins is £8. The most you can win in total from all your free spins is £250 or the total of your deposits up to that point, whichever is lower.
The wagering requirements on all bonuses at Fever Slots are 65-times the bonus plus the total of any other wagering requirements left on your account.
For this bonus, you must deposit £10 to trigger the Mega Wheel, so the minimum wagering requirement is £650.
The site tells us that the only bets that count towards paying off wagering requirements are bets made with bonus funds.
Bets are always made with real money before bonus funds, and some games simply don’t contribute towards the wagering requirement pay off. Wins are all paid into your bonus account, which cannot be used on progressive slots, bingo, table games, or live casino games.
Everyone likes a welcome bonus, and 500 spins look absolutely fabulous, but we think you have to be pretty sure you want to stay at the site to pick up this bonus with all its restrictions on it. Not that they are that atypical for the industry, it’s just the scale of them that made us jump!
Other Promotions at Fever Slots Casino
There are a large number of other promotions at Fever Slots casino.
Promotions chance with time and not all promotions are available to all players.
When we visited the site in November 2020 we found promotions that included a computer giveaway on Slingo games – fancy an iMac? Lovely!
A tournament style prize gave the player with the biggest single win on the site during any month a £50 dining out Voucher.
Cashback can be claimed the day after a deposit. The amount awarded is: 5% of the total of daily deposit – minus any withdrawals – minus the current balance. It won’t be a huge amount, but anything is worth taking if it’s free. The main purpose is obviously to encourage you to log in the following day after a playing session.
Loyalty Schemes and VIP
There’s a loyalty scheme at Fever Slots that awards prizes based on trophy collection.
By completing tasks – usually depositing or playing – you win trophies that take you up a ladder of prizes. A number of the promotions, like Amazon vouchers for players who earn 200 trophies, are linked to this scheme, but there isn’t a single coherent explanation for it on the site.
Fever Slots Live Casino
Live casinos are the modern online casino’s way back to the future. It’s taken years of development and super-fast broadband connections around the world to deliver… exactly what going to a real casino was like!
Of course, we don’t all live close to a casino, and live casino games online are available around the top wherever you are.
Games are played in a remote location, typically in Eastern Europe or the Baltics, and players use an internet link to watch the play and pass on their own instructions.
We think players need to be aware that live casino games can be more expensive – those staff always need playing. Because of this, you can generally not play live casino games on a demo setting, so if you are going to play live casino games, make sure you know the rules before you start.
There is a social element to these games. We think there’s also a sexual and parasocial element too. There’s nothing sinister or secret in those two words – in fact, you already know that this is how the games are marketed to you. All we ask is that players always treat all members of staff as politely and respectfully as they would like to be treated themselves and that they make decisions about their spending and their gameplay based on what is good for their balance and their health, not on what they think of the dealer.
There is a small selection of live casino games from Pragmatic Play at Fever Slots casino. PP are not one of the big two of this part of the industry, but they are highly respected slots developer and have a good reputation.
Live games aren’t all available at all times, but on our visit, we found examples of blackjack and roulette on offer at the site.
Fever Slots Mobile Casino & App
We think this style of play is preferred by most players. Downloading apps to our phones can be a security risk and we’ve all got plenty on our home screens already. And once you’ve downloaded something are you more likely to overuse it?
Most slots and live games are now available to mobile players.
There’s a good selection of trusted and well-known banking methods available at Fever Slots casino.
The front page carries logos from Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Maestro, Paysafecard, and Pay By Mobile. It’s not the biggest selection in the market but it covers all the bases: cards, prepaid cards, mobiles and e-wallets.
The site’s banking policy is admirably simple and straightforward.
You can only use £ at the site and you can add up to three payment cards to your account if they are all registered to the person in whose name the account is opened.
Pay by Mobile payments can be made up to a maximum of £20, and each deposit attracts a £2.50 transaction fee.
Minimum deposits across all methods are £10.
All withdrawals are charged £2.50.
Payments should be made – after a pending period – in between 1 and 5 days. The first withdrawal can only be made after the player has proved their identification to the site. This is done with a driving licence or passport or a utility bill or bank statement. Some payments may require further verification, including an anonymised version of your debit card and even witnessed documents.
The first thing you should do at any site is to visit the FAQ page. This will get your time there off to a good, and well-informed start.
At Fever Slots like most other sites, you’ll also find some good advice on how to use the site safely and how to access tools to keep your gambling behaviour safe.
There are two emails if you need to go further than the information supplied in the FAQs will take you:
Support@feverslots.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those were the only contact details we could find on the site. Among the information contained on the FAQ page was a warning not to send too many emails to the customer service address. This is not a great way to introduce your customer support systems to your customers.
There were good things in the FAQs though, which is relatively easy to use.
The guide to responsible gaming was up to standard certainly.
The Final Verdict
While there’s a lot to like at Fever Slots it is by no means the greatest UK casino site we’ve ever seen.
Let’s start with the good points: it’s a nice straight forward site, the design is bright and cheerful, and it’s easy to get around. If you can’t find a game you like here we’ll be amazed, there are hundreds and hundreds of them and they include many of the biggest hits in the world and some very different games. You can even play bingo at Fever Slots!
And the welcome offer could be fantastically generous… and here we start to hit problems because even if the size of that bonus – 500 free spins at the maximum – justifies it, a wagering requirement looks so enormous as to be off-putting, as do some of the other requirements attached to the welcome bonus.
There are a load of other promotions, but it’s not quite clear which is a standalone bonus or discount and what extras are linked into the trophies scheme. A lack of really clear information is evident in a number of places on the site, including finding how to contact support if you need it – and a warning to not pester them might have a practical use, but it’s just the sort of thing you can’t tell customers.
This is a great little site with a lot going for it, and it’s probably worth checking out just to get a spin with that bonus wheel to see what happens, but it’s a site that we’ve seen in very similar versions in other places and it could do with a bit more polish.
