Review of All Jackpots Casino
All Jackpots Casino is a member of the Jackpot Factory group, an old-school group of Microgaming casinos that has been around since the turn of the century. At one stage they were regarded as one of the best casino groups on the internet, but their reaction (slower payments, lower withdrawal limits) to the proliferation of high quality competition from nimble new European casinos has put this group in the shade, so to speak.
Blacklisted - affiliate program thievery
We were made aware of several reports of "shaving", an industry term meaning theft from affiliate marketers, by Brightshare who are the affiliate marketing arm of this casino. Sure enough we checked our own numbers and found that they had done the same to us. Recent changes to the group's payout speed (slower) and payment limitations (less per week) are not encouraging and reflect a casino group that may be struggling with cashflow. We have no trust at all in the people running this casino and advise you to avoid it for your own safety.
Software and Games
All Jackpots is powered by Microgaming and has software for download from their website, which is professional in its appearance. From the moment I clicked the link to the moment I shut down the casino, everything ran smoothly, even on my five year old PC. All Jackpots boasts more than 400 games in its casino and the variety is striking. The casino has more than 300 different slots with an additional 15 featuring progressive jackpots. There are also a variety of card based games, as one might expect. There are 40 variations of video poker, the entire Microgaming suite of table poker games as well as war, blackjack, baccarat, craps and roulette.
If you own a Mac or can't or don't want to install the casino software you can also play right in your browser window at the casino's website. The flash-based casino offers more than 200 slots that require no installation to play, and there are several flash-only exclusive slots that you can't play on the download version. And that's not all - you can even have a few spins while you're on the train or sitting in the dentist's office via the All Jackpots mobile casino. Although handy, the mobile casino lacks the sheer number of games that the computer based software does.
The progressive jackpots at All Jackpots are pooled with the Microgaming progressive network which means that the jackpots build as players play them at more than a hundred different casinos around the internet. The biggest is usually the Mega Moolah or Dark Knight jackpot. Also offered at All Jackpots are a variety of slot and blackjack tournaments, which always makes us happy as we like to put our skills (ahem, luck) to the test.
Banking and Customer Support
Banking at All Jackpots is varied with players offered a multitude of options to deposit and withdraw funds from the casino (see the full list on the right of this page). At one time this casino was known for its speedy withdrawals, but I am sad to report that this is no longer the case. All withdrawals are held in a pending state for 48 hours before being released for processing, which can take at least another day depending on your withdrawal method. There is also a strangely worded limitation on the amount that you can withdraw per week, and the more you win the worse it gets. It states that if your single or cumulative withdrawals total more than five times the amount you have deposited at this or any other Jackpot Factory casino, they will limit your withdrawals to $5000 per week. Again, this is an unwelcome change to a casino group that at one time did not implement such limits.
Customer support at All Jackpots is offered by the standard instant messaging, email and telephone support, but it also has individual numbers for gamblers depending on the country they hail from. There are specific numbers for players from Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, and Greece. Other worldwide players have a different number they can call. We have found the support people there to be knowledgable and helpful, though not always quick to answer a call.
Regulation and accountability
All Jackpots is license by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta. It has its payout percentages audited and published on a monthly basis, and satisfies the criteria needed for eCOGRA accreditation.
All Jackpots was once among the best. Nowadays it is a run-of-the-mill Microgaming-only casino with a bunch of games that you can play at hundreds of other casinos that all have a far larger choice of games, and that will pay you quicker and without such small withdrawal limits should you win. Throw in the fact that its affiliate program Brightshare has been caught stealing from its affiliates, and the picture forming for the future of the Jackpot Factory group does not look so rosy. I think this one is best avoided.
