Up to $/€42,500 FREE welcome bonus
Slots Empire clearly has a Roman Empire and Centurion theme and invite players to take on the casino with these words of encouragement: "Ancient prophecies reveal that untold wealth is waiting for those bold and lucky ones who are destined to expand the boundaries of the Empire and to conquer the whole world."
Slots Empire welcome members aged 21+ and has a refreshingly short list of excluded countries, especially when compared to most internet casinos. See later in this review of Slots Empire Casino to see the full list of excluded countries or you can click here to see them now.
Whilst offering its own welcome bonuses, promotions and offers, Slots Empire is an almost-identical online casino to its stablemate Red Dog Casino. Slots Empire has its own website and identity/branding, of course, but behind-the-scenes its basically the same casino with the same games. This means we're dealing with a pretty run-of-the-mill casino with several hundred games of all type from Realtime Gaming (RTG) and live dealer games by Visionary iGaming (ViG). You are welcome to join any or all casinos within this online gambling group and claim welcome bonuses at each.
One positive aspect we are pleased to report about is that Slots Empire's website is clearer to follow and understand than its sibling Red Dog Casino. We found it very difficult to locate various information to enable us to understand the various welcome bonuses at Red Dog, leading to many e-mails back and forth, trying to ascertain exact bonus terms. However, here at Slot Empire there is a definite sign of improvement in this area. It's far from perfect - in fact the promotions page doesn't think it's necessary to include the maximum possible bonuses redeemable, which we'll deal with later in this review - but we at least have maximum and minimum deposit values for each deposit method which enables us to calculate the maximum/minimum bonuses claimable. As mentioned, it's not perfect but it's definitely a step-up.
Downloading Slots Empire - or playing via browser/mobile
As is the case with the majority of RTG casinos, Slots Empire has three different versions of its casino, all accessible online using just one account and login. The three versions in order of preference/overall quality are the download casino, browser-play version and inevitably coming in third place is Slots Empire's mobile edition of the casino.
Whilst the mobile version is easily the weakest of the three, Slots Empire's mobile casino is considerably better than lots of the online gaming competition. Realtime Gaming didn't dawdle when it came to preparing its hundreds of Flash-based games into a workable format when the biggest mobile browsers announced the end of Flash support, so mobile gamblers still have access to a decent range of quality games using most iOS and Android devices.
An obvious attraction of mobile casinos is the flexibility of being able to gamble online anywhere you can connect to the internet. However, what mobile players gain in portability and accessibility is always be met with the drawback of a smaller games collection than available in the download casino or browser version.
Mobile-based casino gambling has definitely come a very long way and now most games play extremely well but compared to a download casino's equivalent of the same games, the download edition will always play, 'feel' and look more impressive.
Irrespective of everything we just wrote, we know that loads of you like to play games at online casinos using various mobile devices so don't let us stop you - if you prefer playing via a mobile phone or pad (or simply don't own a computer) then go right ahead and play your heart out. The potential to win is still the same, no matter how you access Slots Empire Casino. Many players, including some of the most successful online casino regulars, choose to use more than one format of a casino.
Slots Empire's download and browser casinos
As most of our readers already know, download casinos have almost always been far superior to their browser-based and smaller versions but the difference between the two has sometimes not been significant. The browser version of Slots Empire Casino performs perfectly well and will appear familiar and instantly easy-to-navigate to anyone already active at other RTG non-download casinos. Still, even Slots Empire advise players to opt for the download casino for the best visuals, stable gameplay and more games.
Mac users are welcome to use the browser-based casino at Slots Empire but cannot download the Slots Empire software (unless running via a PC emulator). PC/Windows users can and should download Slots Empire Casino to their computer to get the premium experience
Another big reason for downloading Slots Empire instead of playing via browser is that Realtime Gaming has not been quite as quick out of the traps with updating Flash games for their partner casinos as they have been with mobile games. The word on the virtual street is that all previously available Flash-based games at any RTG casino will now only be playable by using the download casino. This is certain to send thousands of players previously used to browser-play over to the download side of things and we think that's not necessarily a bad thing. These players will probably wish they'd downloaded the software before.
Unfortunately, whilst the team at Slots Empire are happy to boast on the casino's website that downloading the casino software is the way to go premium, they make a mess of (not) showing visitors exactly how to download Slots Empire. Fortunately, we've got downloaders covered via our 'future-proof' download service (see 'Download instructions', further down this page) but it's more than a silly oversight to hide your best product. It's a blunder of a mistake.
What are the banking options and currencies at Slots Empire?
Slots Empire does have the benefit of a nicely short list of excluded countries but there isn't a vast range of choice to match when it comes to currencies and banking options. If your local currency is AU$, euros or US$ then you're in perfect luck as these are the only three currencies supported at Slots Empire.
This doesn't really mean any inconvenience or cost for players who's local currency is different (ie. CA$, NZ$, SA Rand or a Scandinavian currency) as deposits and cashouts are processed in your currency and then converted to the most appropriate of those supported at Slots Empire, depending on your location. When it comes to cashing out your winnings, it'll arrive in your bank account (or however you choose to receive the money) in your own, local currency.
We hinted at a sparse choice of banking options at Slots Empire and whilst that's true with only five or six deposit options and four cashout methods available to members, the banking options and limits that are available should be ideal for most members and not unpalatable for everyone else.
The only potential players who should be put-off by Slots Empire's banking options are those wanting to bank via e-wallets such as ecoPayz or Neteller as this is not an accepted method of banking at Slots Empire, for depositing or withdrawing.
Pleasingly, Slots Empire do not charge any fees for deposits or withdrawals regardless of your banking choice. This is sadly not the case at all online casinos, especially when it comes to cashing out your winnings - and even more so when you do so via wire transfer where some casinos really sting players for crazy fees. But we digress - there's none of that unpleasantness going down at Slots Empire. All banking is free and can be processed in seconds via your account cashier in the Slots Empire download casino, mobile or browser casinos.
The eagle-eyed reader maybe spotted we wrote 'five or six' deposit methods being available to Slots Empire. Listed on the casino's website (see our image) are five deposit options, namely:
We could easily knock that list down to four deposit options if we count VISA and Mastercard as just one credit/debit card option. However, what is not listed on the casino's website is an extra depositing option available to players - Deposit by Phone. Why Slots Empire's website designers decided to omit this important banking method is unknown to us but if you want to deposit using your phone then apparently you should call free on +1 850 2734 930 to make your deposit.
Slots Empire does not expand on if this is a real 'Deposit By Phone' banking method when you charge your deposit against your existing pre-paid credit or added to your next phone bill. That would be a nice touch, if really a feature of Slots Empire's banking. Unfortunately, it's more likely a telephone support line offering players guidance on how to deposit via one of the already mentioned existing options. Which is a bit less to get excited about.
The minimum and maximum deposit amounts allowed at Slots Empire is shown below (and in our image), broken down into each deposit method:
$/€10-250 - Neosurf
$/€20-2500 - Bitcoin
$/€30-1000 - Mastercard/VISA & PayID
Note that Neosurf and PayID are only available for deposits (not cashouts). All other payment methods can be used for both depositing and withdrawing.
Cashing out your winnings at Slots Empire
Things are straightforward enough when it comes to cashing out money from your Slots Empire account and a real breeze if using the Slots Empire download casino's cashier. Note that wire transfer is only available for withdrawals (not deposits). All other cashout methods can also be used for depositing money into your account. We've no idea why wire transfer is only available for cashouts as it would appear to be an ideal deposit method too.
The minimum cashout amount is a bit-on-the-high-side at $/€150 for every banking option but at least Slots Empire don't chop any fees off your juicy cashout. The highest amount you can withdraw per transaction is $/€2500 per transaction which, depending on your cashout banking method, should be in your gleeful hands within one to five business days.
The only real downside to Slots Empire's cashout terms and policies is that the $/€2500 per transaction limit is applied if you are fortunately enough to win a progressive jackpot, which might be in the millions of dollars. It's certainly going to be at least in the tens of thousands of dollars/euros if it's a half-decent progressive jackpot which is going to mean you are waiting a long time to receive all of your winnings, should you choose to cash out a large portion of your jackpot winnings as most players would in this situation. For this reason alone, we strongly advise that you do not play any games with a progressive jackpot at Slots Empire.
Casino-Download.com exclusive free signs at sign-up
Available in Slots Empire's download casino, browser and mobile casinos, new sign-ups receive a completely free welcome bonus of 25 free spins on RTG's slot game, Secret Jungle, no deposit required.
This is an exclusive promotion open to Casino-Download.com visitors so you won't see this offer on Slots Empire's standard promotions page.
Your 25 free spins on Secret Jungle should be claimed in your account cashier once you've opened your new account (or logged into an existing one) at Slots Empire. Click the 'coupons' tab and enter bonus code 25JUNGLE to complete the process. You should then be shown that you've been credited with 25 spins playing Secret Jungle with each spin being played at a stake of $/€0.50. Every one of the fifty different win-lines is played during your free spins.
Your total winnings amount from your free spins needs to be wagered x50 prior to cashout, which isn't unreasonable. Slots Empire allow play on board games, keno, scratch cards and slots whilst completing your wager requirement. It's a good selection of games and they all contribute 100% of the stake towards reaching the wager requirement.
You can win and withdraw up to $/€75 from this free spins bonus although as you'll see from our screenshot, we did rather less brilliant and managed to win just €1.80. Yay, us! It's fair to predict you are almost guaranteed to do better than we did.
Slots Empire welcome deposit bonuses
As with almost all online casinos, Slots Empire offer a welcome bonus promotion to new depositors. This benefits the casino by enticing new, real money players and at the same time, helps new clients last longer at the tables and slots with a bigger opening balance.
Rather than the usual first-deposit bonus offered by most casinos, Slots Empire offer new sign-ups deposit bonuses on each of your first FIVE deposits by using bonus code INFANTRY (claimable in all casino versions - download, browser and mobile).
Your first five deposits will earn bonuses of either 225% or 245%, depending on the deposit method used. Remember that all bonuses are optional. They come with allowed games only plus wagering requirements and many players choose to decline welcome bonuses, playing only with their own money. Most players take the bonuses though and should you join them in doing so, your deposits made via credit/debit card or PayID will boost your account balance with a 225% bonus. Players who deposit via Bitcoin or Neosurf receive the extra-boosted 245% bonus. Remember that this INFANTRY bonus code can be used five times, adding up to a sizeable welcome bonus.
Feel free to mix-up your deposit methods whilst claiming your five deposit bonuses. For example, you could make two deposits via Bitcoin and receive a 245% bonus for both deposits, then make three deposits via credit or debit card and receive a 225% bonus for those three deposits. Bitcoin clearly offers the biggest bonus and by nature of its high $/€2500 deposit limit is going to offer the biggest possible welcome bonuses but it's entirely up to you to decide which banking options you prefer.
An important term/limit to be aware of when accepting these five deposit bonuses is that each bonus has a maximum win/withdrawal of x30 your deposit. So if you've deposited $/€100 via credit/debit card and received a (225%) $/€225 bonus then your maximum cashout will be $/€3000 ($/€100 x30). This isn't as mean as it might first read and loads of online casinos apply far stricter limits to their welcome bonuses. More importantly, you can simply keep an eye on your account balance if you're having a particularly lucky run and if you reach your deposit x30 cashout limit then withdraw the lot and once you've received your money, claim the next bonus and do it all over again.
The wagering requirement whilst playing with Slots Empire's five welcome bonuses is (deposit + bonus) x35. Using the above example of a $/€100 credit/debit card deposit and $/€225 bonus received, the wager requirement would be $/€11,375 ($/€100 deposit + $/€225 bonus = $/€325 x 35 = $/€11,375) so it's by no means a certainly that you'll complete the wagering requirements. More likely, you'll bust out before you get there but for lots of players, this challenge of beating online casinos with their own bonus money is part of the gambling thrill.
Slots Empire is a perfectly decent casino with the usual wide range of RTG games and live dealer tables for players who demand the best in atmosphere and realism from their online casinos. There could be more deposit and cashout options, clearer instructions on how to download Slots Empire's software, the bonus wagering terms could certainly be lower and without doubt Slots Empire should stop applying their standard cashout limits to progressive jackpot wins. Those are the negatives.
The positives here are that Slots Empire has a good reputation, zero complaints received at this end, reasonably fast cashouts and some attractive ongoing promotions. Slots Empire's download casino is of course the most recommended and if you own a computer then you should be downloading to get the true picture of what Slots Empire has to offer. 24/7 telephone support is far from guaranteed at internet casinos these days (which we think is ludicrous) so it's refreshing to see Slots Empire offering this essential service for its clients. A casino worthy of joining.
