All Slots Casino is a part of the Jackpot Factory group of casinos, a group with a wealth of online gaming experience. I have to say upon visiting the website, this experience could be seen instantly. The website is really well designed and as well as being eye-catching with its use of vibrant graphics, the website also provides key information a new player is likely to need - banking, promotions, support and more; all important sections are present.
All Slots is available in two formats; a no-download Flash version and a download version. To experience fully what All Slots has to offer I would recommend the download version, and this was the version I chose for the purposes of this review. The software that must be downloaded from the website is 6.23mb in size and while this is reasonably big, it shouldn't take longer than approximately 30 minutes to download, even in a dial-up network.
Once the software is downloaded, installation is easy - and after a few minutes a user is presented with the casino lobby where they can register a new account. At All Slots, the standard form interface is used to register a new player's details and accounts can be denominated in US$, UK Ã‚Â£ or Euros.
Although All Slots Casino claim to offer over 350 casino games, not all games are available instantly; instead, games are downloaded in the background. However, should there be a game that a player particularly wants to play instantly, he or she can force a game to download. Of course, a player cannot play any games until they have funds in their account and as such I visited the All Slots cashier.
Depositing is simple at All Slots, and a variety of deposit options are available. These range from popular methods such as Credit Cards, UseMyWallet and NETeller to less popular purchase methods such as Payspark. I chose to make a $100 via NETeller and after a few seconds my account was reflecting the new balance. For those that like claiming bonuses, All Slots really will shine - as those purchasing $100 are eligible for $100 free and 10% cash back up to $5000 per year.. Although the sign-up bonuses are attractive, it is worth remembering that wagering conditions are attached. As such, I actually chose to play without a bonus.
As stated before, although All Slots does have a number of slot games available, a good number of other games are available and each game falls in to one of the menu categories detailed in the lobby. As such, games are broken down by type such as table, slot or video poker. However, despite this huge game selection, it was the slot games that I actually chose to play first during my testing of All Slots.
As stated earlier, a slots player at All Slots has a huge choice of games available. However, not only are a huge number of games are available, but many of these games are different from each other meaning that there's bound to be a game that meets the needs of the player. From old-style three-reel slots to multi-line video slots with bonus features, every type of slot imaginable is present. Similarly, jackpot hunters won't be disappointed - Major Millions has hit for over $1.6m in the past!
I started off by playing a three-reel slot called Frost Bite. This game is nothing fancy - just three reels and a single win line. However, I actually really enjoyed this game because of the simple-to-play presentation. Similarly, the cool blue graphics really do look attractive. At other casinos I have found that slots can often be a let down, but clearly this is not the case at All Slots.
Although I had a few decent hits on this game, I decided to move bang-up-to-date by playing on the newly released Dino Might game. This video slot has so many features it is untrue - wild symbols, bonus games and more. As such, it's really easy to get lost in this game - something I proceeded to do! The bonus games seemed to appear pretty regularly and coupled with the cool graphics and catchy sound effects I soon found myself caught up on the play. It was only the fact that my bank balance was down to $60 that I stopped!
However, my slot play wasn't finished and I next tried out the Gopher Gold slot. This is a game that seems to be either very hot or very cold with no in-between. If it's paying then great, but it not - be prepared to hit zero quickly! For me it was playing cold and although I had a few small hits, it wasn't enough to stop my bankroll dipping even further downwards to the $40 mark. Thankfully, a little more play on the cool Loaded game and the fun Big Top game meant I walked away from the slots with only a $25 loss!
And so, with my slot play complete and a healthy $75 remaining, I decided next to try out some of the Video Poker games available. I have to say I didn't think the video poker selection would be great at All Slots, considering the fact that this casino has clearly focused on slot machines. However, I was soon proven wrong as a click on the video poker menu revealed a wealth of games available. A great number of games are present at All Slots and many of them are playable in multi-hand form (4-hand, 10-hand, 50-hand and even 100-hand).
I decided to start of with some 100-hand Jacks or Better. This is a really fun game, although the volatility of this game is pretty huge. This is because a winning hand on the initial deal means that a big win is pretty likely. Of course, the reverse is also true - a mixed bag of cards means that a $25 bet across all hands can return just a few dollars. Thankfully, I experienced the up-side of this volatility and a few good hands meant my bank roll surpassed my initial $100 starting point. Of course, the presentation of this game was also great - good graphics and sounds are again used across the range of All Slot's Video Poker games.
Thankfully my good luck continued, and some Aces and Faces Power Poker play along with a little Deuces and Joker action soon propelled my bank roll to a nice $170 mark. Part of this increase was due to luck, but also partially because of my perfect play. Video Poker is very much a game where percentage return is dictated by a players skill, but at All Slots this never becomes an issue. This is because of the 'expert' function that analyses a player's moves to ensure they are making the best plays - a great little feature!
To finish of my review I decided to see if I could push my bank balance to $250 before cashing out. To help me on the way I decided to play some of the less-popular table games available at All Slots starting with Pai Gow Poker. This game sees 7 cards dealt to both dealer and player. Both the player and the house then have to arrange the cards to have a 5-set hand and a two-set hands. The hands are then compared and if a player's hands both beat the dealer's the game is a win for the player. To make this game even more exciting, All Slots have introduced an optional side bet which can pay of handsomely for good starting hands!
I also played a little Poker Pursuit. This game is similar to Video Poker in terms of its volatility - again, a winning hand after 3 cards are dealt mean the 'let it ride' bets can remain in play and also meaning a decent win is likely! Thankfully this game didn't eat me alive and nor did the Sic Bo game I went to play next. After a bit of winning and a bit of losing I ended up with my balance at the magic $250 mark and as such proceeded to cash in.
Withdrawing money is as simple as depositing at All Slots Casino, with a quick visit to the casino cashier being all that is required to withdraw funds. A player can chose how they want their cash in to be received, although often this is dependent on the deposit method used. I chose to withdraw via NETeller and after about 72 hours the money was back in my account. However, the website does claim it can take up to 5 days for a deposit to be received. As such, while I think this is a respectable time frame in which cash-ins can be processed, I have played at casinos that process cash-ins quicker.
Finally, I tested support at All Slots. In the past I have had mixed thoughts on support offered by casinos in the Jackpot Factory group. At All Slots, support is offered via email and telephone. However, only those in the USA, Canada or UK can use the toll free numbers provided, which is a shame. Similarly, whilst email is available for all, my experience showed that it can take a good few hours for the casino to respond. As such, while support is available and is responsive, it can be a little while before a player's issues are resolved.
In conclusion, I think that All Slots is a pretty great casino. A huge number of games are available which, of course, includes a good number of slots. From what I could see, all of the games are presented in a very high quality manner with good use of graphics and sounds really enhancing the player experience. Similarly, the support and banking functions are definitely not a concern. Finally, with a nice sign up bonus available on a small deposit, I see no reason why everybody shouldn't check out this great Jackpot Factory property!
