Cherry Jackpot Casino is an online casino established in 2017 with games supplied by Realtime Gaming. It is operated by Entertainment Software Group NV and is registered under the jurisdiction of Curaçao. Last updated: February 3, 2019.
In the world of U.S. friendly online casinos, we've seen a bit of a slowdown as of late in terms of new online betting sites opening shop. The Entertainment Software Group, operators of the previously reviewed Casino Max, obviously saw an opportunity in 2017 by launching Cherry Jackpot Casino. It features the standard Realtime Gaming (RTG) software set and offers some good features for players.
As mentioned above, Cherry Jackpot features the standard Realtime Gaming software suite, which is something it seems that most U.S.-friendly casinos do these days. In a break from the norm though, the casino doesn't offer downloadable software, instead opting for an instant play version that works right in your internet browser. The site itself is nothing groundbreaking and the gaming platform does little to make it stand out from the competition, but the foundations of a good casino are present. Mobile play is also supported via the web browser on your phone or tablet, although you don't get the full casino game library through those devices.
There are more than 160 slots on offer at Cherry Jackpot, with both video and classic slots available for punters to test their luck with. As is usual with RTG games, there is a range in quality from dated to impressive, but you'll find no shortage of games to test out. If you like progressive jackpots, you'll find that many of the games have the prizes attached to them, with some featuring huge six-figure payouts.
Table games, video poker, and parlour games are also available, with variations ballooning the size of Cherry Jackpot Casino's library. RTG table games are quite good and quick to play, especially the blackjack, and other table based card games.
As you would expect at a U.S. facing online casino, the breadth of choice in the banking system at Cherry Jackpot Casino is limited. The site accepts deposits and withdrawals through credit cards, Bitcoin, and bank transfer. The deposit process is more or less instantaneous, while payouts may take a bit longer at 2-5 business days depending on your choice of payment method.
The casino has a low weekly withdrawal limit of $4000, and there is a hefty $200 minimum withdrawal on winnings to be aware of if you want to be paid via a check or wire transfer. For withdrawals as low as $30 you can use Bitcoin, which has no fee attached. While not exactly a huge set of options, this operator has a long history of exemplary behaviour when it comes to paying winnings. This record goes way back over a decade when it used to be in charge of the Club World group of casinos, a group they no longer run.
The customer support and service provided is good. You can converse with native English speaking support via live chat, telephone, and email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they were able to point me in the right direction when I posed as someone who had no idea how to gamble at an online casino. I have little doubt that they'll be able to help you out with most basic things that you throw their way.
It was good to see that Cherry Jackpot provides full top-level on down SSL encryption for user data. This means that your internet browser will encrypt your personal information, financial transactions, and gameplay data, as it is sent back and forth between your computer and the casino's servers. This is necessary to keep your info safe from hackers and gives the casino a touch of credibility against some of its less secure competition.
Cherry Jackpot is licensed to operate by Curacao eGaming. As we have mentioned many times before, unfortunately the "regulator" authorities in Curacao are regulators in name only, and would perhaps be better described as fee collectors and web hosts for online gaming sites. Therefore there are no official dispute resolution procedures backed by an independent arbitrator for you to rely on should you have a dispute with the casino. It does offer the services of Central Disputes System for complaint handling which, while official sounding, is in fact a body set up by RTG for its licensees. All said and done, if you are playing at a Curacao casino you are placing a lot of trust in the operator of the casino to do the right thing by you. This casino's operator has proven itself to be very reliable over many years, and I feel that they have earned my trust.
The games at this casino are audited for fairness and randomness by a company named Technical Systems Testing on behalf of RTG. However the casino does not disclose the theoretical payout rates of its games, nor does it publish any audited payout figures. Responsible gaming is addresses to the bare minimum with a page dedicated to the topic with information on how to avoid falling to addictive behaviours. You can set a limit on your deposits or request a self exclusion, but you will need to contact customer support for help with this as there are no self administered controls like we see at casinos running in highly regulated jurisdictions.
At the end of the day, I feel like I've played at Cherry Jackpot Casino before. The site is nearly a carbon copy of many other RTG style casinos out there, for better and worse. Cherry Jackpot does some things very well, and there is no doubt that it comes from an operator with a great track record. However the limited banking system could do with improvement in terms of the options offered, a reduction in minimum withdrawal amounts, and an increased in the weekly payment limits.
