Though it may initially seem as busy and fanciful as an old school prog-rock gig, Rockstar Reels has a refreshingly simple objective: ‘...to provide quality entertainment to people who enjoy gambling’. And with such a wide and varied collection of games on hand, it’s fair to say Rockstar Reels has the capability to meet that goal ‘eight days a week’ (sorry).
The software companies Rockstar Reels has partnered with reads like a software developer Hall of Fame: NetEnt, Quickspin, ELK Studios, Thunderkick, NextGen are all in there along with many other reputable names and a smattering of exciting up-and-coming outfits. Suffice to say, this arrangement ensures the site can boast an impressive array of playing options and associated features.
Following the trend set by other recently-launched iGaming platforms, Rockstar Reels has been optimised to work smoothly via your browser. This means that on-the-go gamblers can get stuck into the fun on their mobile or tablet without having to download yet another memory-sucking app.
With more than 400 titles currently on the bill, slots are undoubtedly the headline act at Rockstar Reels. While this extensive selection is still less than some other sites provide, it is the quality of the games which shines through. Cast your eye around the lobby and you’ll see only the good stuff, a wall-to-wall Aladdin’s Cave of top-quality titles, perennial favourites and lesser-known gems.
And, should you get the urge for something new, you can always try some of Rockstar Reels’ beautifully rendered casino games like blackjack, roulette and casino poker. Video poker and live dealer games are also on hand for added excitement. And don’t forget the scratchcards...
As you might expect from a site professing to have rock star qualities, there are some nice touches of showmanship to admire on the Rockstar Reels site. The fun animations on the homescreen banner are dynamic without being distracting, while the static promos are stylish and concise in equal measure.
With regards to accessibility, Rockstar Reels have gone for an unplugged approach. They’ve stripped everything back to ensure the amount of effort you have to make to find something is minimal. The handy genre tabs at the top of the lobby page put you in the right area straight away, while the search bar brings everything else to your fingertips in seconds. You can even search by developer: that way you can try out games, new and old, from your fave software providers.
Promotions and Bonuses
Rockstar Reels does a pretty good job of rolling out the red carpet to new players. At the time of writing, all newbies to the site have to do is sign up and they’ll automatically qualify for a sweet 100% welcome deposit bonus worth up to £200. There’s also 50 wager-free spins in the offing.
But that’s not all. Rockstar Reels know that getting new punters through the door is only half the battle - keeping them interested is another thing entirely. This, one would assume, is why the site boasts enticing (consecutive) weekly offers alongside an aggregated VIP program which - within a relatively short time-frame - can work out to be very lucrative indeed. In short, the more you play, the more perks you’ll get back in return. Treats include birthday presents, personalised gifts and even an anniversary bonus.
Deposit and Withdrawals
Once you’re ready to make a deposit, you can use one or more of the following options to do it in a safe and secure way:
- Paysafe Card
- Pay by phone
Withdrawals are pretty straightforward too and, in most cases, take around 3-5 business days to process. The minimum withdrawal amount is £2.5 and new players have to verify their identity before an initial payment is sanctioned.
Support and Security
If you have any questions or concerns then you can get in touch with the amiable customer support staff at Rockstar Reels via live chat or email, 24/7.
As well as the Malta Gaming Authority, Rockstar Reels is fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) so you can rest assured your cash will be stored in secure, segregated accounts. You can also be reassured that every game has been tested and verified by a third-party as safe and fair. What’s more, the entire platform is fully protected by SSL encryption.
While it may not turn the amp dial all the way up to 11, Rockstar Reels certainly knows how to put on a show and wow the crowd. It welcomes you warmly, keeps you entertained and rewards you long after you’ve paid the initial ticket price. All in all, it’s a bit like going to Glastonbury - just with loads more slots!
