Review of Slots Jungle Casino
Powered by Real Time Gaming (RTG), Slots Jungle is a tropical Jungle-themed online casino, which is owned by a Curacao-based company known as Netad Management. This is one of several online casinos currently owned by this company and they are licensed in Curacao, in the Netherlands Antilles. All US-based players are accepted here, currently without restriction, though given the casino's track record you would be better advised to steer clear.
Blacklisted for non-payment of winnings by sister casino
One of Slots Jungle's sister casinos run by the same management group is known as Grand Macao Casino. In July 2014 we were contacted by a player who had run into trouble withdrawing around $6500 in winnings. To cut a long story short, the casino simply refuses to pay the winnings and has given the player the "talk to the hand" response. This outright rogue behaviour deserves nothing less than a place on our casino blacklist.
Software and Game Selection
You will see a full library of popular RTG casino games at Slots Jungle that have some great graphics, bonus features and sound effects. They offer plenty of entertainment value and have a wide range of wagering options. Slots that you may be interested in at Slots Jungle include Field of Green, Warlocks Spell, Paradise Dreams, Enchanted Garden, Crystal Waters, Wooden Boy, Treasure Chamber and T-Rex. Slots Jungle even has its very own machine named after the casino that you cannot play anywhere else. There are plenty more to venture into and explore for yourself. The 'Speciality' section of the casino offers popular games such as Sic Bo, Bonus Bingo, Scratchcards, Dice games, as well as Keno, Super 21 and other Blackjack games, and other games like Let ‘em Ride and Baccarat. These games have been presented on fine looking tables with decent backgrounds.
A notable omission at Slots Jungle and its sister casinos are the RTG network progressive jackpots. Games with million dollar plus jackpots such as Jackpot Pinantas and Shopping Spree are simply not available at this casino. There are however random progressive jackpots which can be won simply by playing selected slot machines. However the jackpots at Slots Jungle Casino are a lot less attractive when you consider the restrictive withdrawal policies, but more on that later. Slots Jungle also offers a slot tournaments facility where you can take on fellow players in competitions that cost a fixed fee to enter.
Banking and Support
The only currency used at Slots Jungle is US Dollars, although you can deposit in other currencies and they will be converted to USD. Getting funds initially credited to your account can be done through a number of different trusted methods. Choose from either Mastercard, Visa, Maestro, Wire Transfer, PrePaid ATM, Neteller, Ukash, Moneybookers, UseMyWallet, ECO, ClickandBuy and Click2Pay.
Americans looking to withdraw their money will have to rely on a wire transfer or check and herein lies the biggest drawback of this casino and all the others run by the same management: the withdrawal policies. The official line in the terms and conditions is that withdrawals are paid in instalments "up to $3000" - "per payment period" (whatever that is?), but the amount you are actually paid varies according to "player class" (i.e how regularly you deposit and presumably how much). In practice, you can never be sure how much these guys will pay you in instalments - and it is commonly as low as $500 every two weeks or so. American players who have very little choice may be prepared to put up with this sort of thing, but everyone else should be running in the other direction by now.
The support crew at Slots Jungle is supposed to be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be reached via phone, fax, email, or live text chat. However we have found them either to be overworked or understaffed because they are often slow to respond to our enquiries over the live chat facility.
Slots Jungle is a uniquely themed casino with plenty to amuse you in terms of gaming selection. Unfortunately it is let down by an overly restrictive withdrawal policy that can keep you waiting weeks for your money. And given our experience in attempting to help a big winner get paid by one of its sister casinos, we can't even be sure that they will pay you in the end. Steer clear.
