All US Players Accepted @ All Star Slots Casino.
All Star Slots Casino:
All Star Slots isn't a new casino for us. Indeed we reviewed it only as couple of months ago! However, as soon as the review was published we discover that the casino had decided to change operating platforms! As such, gone is the old Wizard Gaming software and in its place stands a brand new RTG casino. Given a software switch is a pretty fundamental change at an online casinos we decided to start again to see what the ‘new' All Star Slots has to offer.
Like many online casinos, All Star slots requires a local installation to operate – there is no browser version of this casino, although this must be a deliberate thing as RTG do produce Flash casinos for other sites.. However, the installation file is only 417k in size and once up and running it only takes a few more minutes to download the required file to operate.
Account creation is also straight forward and a player simply needs to provide the usual details concerning name, address and contact details to set up an account. All play at All Star Slots takes place using the US dollar currency although of course players from across the world can still play here – many financial institutions will simply apply a conversion rate to any purchased made if the player's home currency is not the dollar. Players from the US will also be pleased to note they are able to play at this site.
One of the major criticisms we had of the previous software is that only slot games (apart from one solitary Blackjack game) were available. Although the name ‘All Star Slots' suggests the casino might be slot heavy, to offer only this type of games leads to a very restrictive gaming experience. Thankfully that has changed with the introduction of RTG-powered software and players will be pleased to note in excess of 150 different games are available to play.
All Star Slots does allow players to test the waters using a free play account which is great for those completely new to playing online. However, the real fun of online gaming is had when playing for money and as such the first thing I did was to top up my account. The All Star Slots cashier allows deposits to be made using common real-world and virtual payment options and I decided to use my Visa card to fund my account with $50. All Star Slots does offer player the chance to double their first and second deposits for a total bonus of $787 but on this occasion I decided not to make a claim for bonus money.
Although this casino is still slot focussed, given the expansion in to table games I decided it was only right to give this section of the casino a quick look over. As I expected, I found a decent selection of games are available such as Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat. There's also a variety of more modern card games such as Texas Hold'em Casino and Face-up 21. As such, traditional gamblers and those who like the newer-type games are both catered for in equal measure.
I tried a bit of Blackjack and was impressed with the smooth game play and generally high-quality look of the game. As standard this casino doesn't have things like dealer voiceovers although suitable sound effects are available and with betting limits starting at just $1 on most games I imagine the majority of players should be satisfied with the overall game presentation. On the subject of betting limits, at the other end of the spectrum betting on the two available spots at the Blackjack table would allow a gambler to bet a maximum of $500 per round.
One of the very satisfactory things with All Star Slots is that players are able to configure certain parts of the casino. As such, if players don't like the sound effects they can be disabled. Even game speed can be configured here so players really can adjust games to their liking. This is a nice touch and shows the degree of thought that has gone in to putting together the casino.
After hanging around the table games part of the casino (and winning a decent $50 on my starting stake) I next went to check out the Video Poker part of the casino. These games were completely missing from the old software so again it's nice to see games of this type now available.
The funny thing is the management have gone from zero games to offering a vast number of games in one step! Now players can bet on a variety of different Video Poker types and multi-hand fans will love the fact that games can be played across 3, 10, 52 and even 100-hands. Although these games are slightly cold in terms of their graphics the game play itself is good and VP players should have no real issues.
I had real fun playing the 100-hand Jacks or Better game which can pay out massively if the player is dealt decent starting cards. Even something like a pair of Jacks is enough to ensure every hand will be winner and there's always a chance of hitting that big payout! A Royal Flush pays 4000-coins across the Video Poker range and on a $1.25 bet that means potential winnings of a massive $1000!
Of course with a name like All Star Slots our review wouldn't be complete without testing out the slot games. Thankfully I think the variety of slots is actually better in the new software than in the old with far more progressive and feature games available. Of course, traditional style three-reel machines can be found but for me playing bonus rounds knowing you are going to win a decent amount of money is definitely more thrilling!
I had a great time playing Loose Caboose which is an old favourite of mine. This game sees a player trying to get 3 or more red trains on the screen to activate the ‘Cash Train' feature. When the Cash Train is hit it awards players we free spins, wild symbols and win multipliers thus allowing players to very quickly rack up a win. My bonus round resulted in $1.25 becoming over $36.00 and although not a massive win still helped keep my bank balance up.
The Triple Twister game is equally compelling although this game features expanding wilds. These are wild symbols that under certain circumstances fill a reel completely. This of course means some massive wins can be obtained, particularly since the twister wild also acts as a 3x multiplier.
The other great thing about many of All Star's slot games is that they feature progressive random jackpots. These jackpots sit at the top of the game and climb constantly until won by a player. A player doesn't need to hit anything in particularly to win one, they just need lady luck to smile down on them. With many offering the chance to win many thousands of dollars it's just another reason why slot play at this casino is so attractive. Indeed, the Cleopatra Gold jackpot of over $250,000 is almost worth playing on its own!
Having completed my test play at All Star Slots I was in the very nice position of having a bank balance $200 up on my starting deposit. As such, I went to the cashier to make a cash out. However, at this point my withdrawal was immediately rejected because the casino didn't have appropriate fax-back forms on file. I expected this to be the start of a long-drawn out affair like I've had at other casinos. However, on the contrary I sent an email with the required documentation and was very happy to receive a ‘it's all good' email just 30 minutes later. As such, I went back to the cashier to make my NeTeller withdrawal (this casino cannot pay back to Visa cards).
What happened next though was a real surprise. A couple of minutes after making my withdrawal I received an email from the casino. I expected this to be the usual “we've noted your request, please wait 48 hours” message. However, the contents of the email suggested my withdrawal had been processed! Sure enough, on checking NeTeller the money was sitting there just 2 minutes after cashing-in! It seems all e-wallet withdrawals at All Star Slots get this treatment and it's surely the best news for players. No more pending periods or worrying about getting paid – All Star Slots deliver immediately!
Customer support too is equally responsive and although only email support is available, every email I sent was responded to within a matter of minutes. I do still think additional live methods such as telephone support would be good, but at least the email support works well. I did find an in-casino live chat function but when I tried it I was actually just presented with an email-in form. Nevertheless I will still happy with the support offering despite contact routes being limited.
In summary I think All Star Slots has come a long with since I last played a few months ago. The new software seems to have brought with it a new impetus to please the player and certainly my experience was very positive. The new game selection is great and the game quality is abundantly apparent. Banking is super and the instant withdrawal processing is a pleasure to experience. Similarly customer support is responsive although it's a shame only email support is offered. Nevertheless All Star Slots has certainly gone up in my estimations and this is a casino I'll definitely be coming back to. I look forward to seeing what else this casino has to offer in the future!
