Review of Gossip Slots

Gossip Slots is an online casino that was founded in 2013 and is part of the Drake Group, who also manages Drake Casino. If you can get past the name which makes no sense to anyone I have asked, the casino does look pretty attractive and I was quite interested in taking a deeper look. So how did my visit to Gossip Slots turn out?

Software and game selection

Gossip Slots is run on a browser-based platform that allows you to play directly through your browser window, without the need to download or install any extra software to your computer. The games are supplied by Betsoft Gaming as well as Arrow's Edge, and this gives players access to a full slate of casino games including slot machines, table games and video poker.

The main billing at Gossip Slots is without a doubt the BetSoft 3D-rendered slots, which is problematic due to our blacklisting of the software supplier. When playing these games you are definitely in for a graphical treat as these games are all about the eye candy. The company's games have a tradition of offering crisp and vibrant 3D rendered graphics as well as bonus features that are fun and potentially lucrative. However a nine month investigation that we conducted into their progressive jackpots revealed that they don't always pay out fairly. And in more recent times a player at another casino running Betsoft games was cheated out of a massive progressive jackpot win and paid off a small compensatory amount to stop his public complaints. We advise all players to avoid all Betsoft games entirely.

That leaves you with the games from Arrow's Edge which do not hold up nearly as well, at least in terms of presentation. Many of them are in fact re-releases of older games that were developed by a supplier by the name of Wizard Gaming that dropped off the radar several years ago. At the time they were decent games but it is fair to say that they haven't aged well. With that being said, while not graphically or technologically impressive, Arrow's Edge's games do play smoothly and I ended up spending a considerable amount of time playing the casino's Blackjack and Tri Card Poker.

Banking and customer support

Banking at Gossip Slots is adequate, the casino providing a basic slate of options to American players and expanding their services a bit to provide Skrill, Neteller, and even Bitcoin as methods to deposit and withdraw money. You should be aware of the casino's minimum withdrawal of $100 and that this operator only allows you to withdraw $5000 per week. While this weekly limit likely won't affect most of us, it could impact you if you ended up scoring a huge win. What will impact everyone are the withdrawal fees which are way more than I am comfortable with, such as $60 for a wire transfer and similar percentage based fees on other withdrawal methods. As an American I was pleased though to see that my wire withdrawal arrived after a week which, sad as it may sound, is not too bad for an American friendly casino these days.

Customer support at Gossip Slots is good, with staff available to speak to you via instant message, telephone, or email. I found the staff to be fast to pick up via instant messenger, and I never had an issue with them not being able to help me out. Support staff is generally available between 10am-midnight EST for American punters, which is when the majority of players will gamble.

Security, privacy, and responsible gaming

Security and privacy are covered by Gossip Slots in the company's privacy policy and terms and conditions, which details information about how the casino handles your personal information. I spotted nothing out of the ordinary there. The casino uses SSL encryption for any login or payment processing activity you submit to the casino, which is good as it ensures that your transactions are private.

Responsible gaming is not specifically mentioned at Gossip Slots unless you count a one paragraph mention in the terms and conditions in which the casino only spells out that they are not liable for any damages done by a player with a gambling problem. To me this is a missed opportunity for Gossip Slots, as I feel that casinos have a social responsibility to at least mention problem gaming and recommend outside groups to provide assistance. I hope that Gossip Slots realises this and adds a page to help players; it's the right thing to do.

Conclusion

Gossip Slots is a serviceable online casino that offers something a bit different for American players, who are generally stuck playing the same games from developers like RTG. The casino does do some things well, but the questionable status of the majority of its games along with improvements needed in the withdrawal department ultimately make this little more than a mediocre online casino.

Beware. Once they have your number, they will keep calling. They call my cell everyday, sometime several times a day. It could be morning, midday or evening. It does not matter, they keep calling and leaving messages.

How annoying! Too bad they do this, because the games look like something different to me.

And, Gossip Slots? Really? Reminds me when CL Ed made the post where we made up funny casino names. Would have never thought of Gossip Slots. lol

This is one of those casinos where I usually play 3D slot machines, the choice is really huge and everyone will find something for themselves. I am able to try more than 20 slots at this casino and the biggest impression on me was left Boomanji slot in which I earned over € 100 for two days after that I lost a total of € 60, € 40 the rest of the money to my Neteller account was available for about 72 hours. Probably because of the weekend lasted so long, I would probably just waiting for the money 24 hours, but this is not bad, it is essential to build trust between players and casino bidder. Customer support is excellent, from me all compliments for them as a serious company.

Although my experience with Gossip Slots is a little old, I still have a little grudge on this casino. I remember I signed up there to get free bonus. Everything was easy and then after registration I saw that there was no bonus in my account. I had a conversation with their live support and I can still remember that I was told they didn't even accept players from my country and therefore I couldn't get a bonus or even play there. I was mad because then there was nothing that said that. Then I asked to close my account which they did, but even after that I received some phone calls from them. Maybe they accept players from my country now, but I would be still careful before playing there.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience blck. I checked with Gossip Slots and the latest is that they do accept Latvian players and they are eligible for bonuses.

This casino is absolutely great! There are plenty of free spins sent out, free tournaments on a daily basis. No need to buy into these kinds of tournaments. There are many games and Slots to choice from and superb promotions. Bitcoin is also accepted here which is a great payment method should you wish not to use other methods on offer. I have won a free tournament here and got 75 dollars credited to my account once the tournament ended. However I didn't have much luck with these winnings and didn't to a withdrawal.
But great cadino and highly recommended ...!!!!
