Volt Casino first came to life in 2015 but it has undergone a change in management since then. The new site first appeared in 2018 and it seems to have won over plenty of fans in the intervening months. While the main menu appears on the left of the site, the game types are spread across the top, so you won't have any issues getting straight to the heart of the action.
Pros and Cons
- Over 500 games to play
- NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, and Microgaming feature among the developers
- Collect Volt Points to spend in the Volt Shop
- No VIP club
- No current promotions beyond the welcome bonus
Promotions and Bonuses
The welcome deal is different to anything you may have seen before. You can earn up to 300 cash spins on your first deposit, with 10 spins given on the Book of Dead slot for each multiple of £10 deposited. The minimum deposit amount is £20 to qualify for the deal. Once inside the casino, you must go to the Gift Box area in your account to claim your cash spins. You cannot get more than £300 in prizes from the spins, and deposits via Skrill and Neteller do not qualify to trigger this welcome promotion.
Registering an account with the casino is done via a three-stage process. This covers your personal details, address information, and your casino profile. They have provided a link to their terms and conditions at the top of the first section, which is reassuring. It's good to read those before signing up. You get a green tick as you complete each box, so you'll know if you have mistyped something or missed a box.
Upon signing up, a message appeared stating that customer funds could be viewed as assets if the business went under. You must click a message saying you accept the funds are viewed as Not Protected as per Gambling Commission requirements. Following that, you must verify your age and identity prior to playing. This is required and provides peace of mind that the site is operating along responsible lines. You can however look around before doing this.
Deposits and Withdrawals
You'll see a selection of payment options provided in a box in the bottom right corner of the site. These include the usual cards such as MasterCard and Visa, along with web wallets including Neteller, paysafecard, and Skrill. There doesn't appear to be a banking page, but a note included in the FAQ area reveals the casino doesn't charge commission on transactions.
If some online casinos seem a little harsh on the eyes, you may feel this one is more refreshing. The slate grey background works well with the cool green tones of the logo that crop up across the site. We liked browsing the game areas at the top of the page too, as it reduces the amount of time spent looking for the ones you want most. They've also included a brief review of each game before you play it, if you select the small 'i' option on each game image. This makes it easier to find out what a game can offer if you haven't tried it previously.
Everything looks just as good on a smaller smartphone screen or a tablet. The site has clearly been designed to work with mobile browsers, as there are no apps to worry about. Everything loads quickly and while the site is slimmer on a smartphone, it loses none of its appeal. The menus work the same way too, so if you're familiar with the desktop site, you won't have any trouble getting to grips with gaming on your iOS, Windows, or Android device either.
Some big names are waiting to be found at Volt Casino, including NetEnt and Microgaming. We appreciated the mix of lesser-known developers included too though, as this builds out a bigger and more diverse collection of games. Watch out for titles from BF Games, Leander, Wazdan, and Nektan among others. One thing we liked was that the name of the developer appears in view when you hover over a slot or game.
It soon becomes clear the focus is firmly placed on slot games at Volt Casino. However, table game fans are likely to find a few titles worth trying too.
Among the table games we find the familiar blackjack and roulette options in several variants. Meanwhile, there are other options including Jacks or Better Double Up, Vegas Downtown Gold Series, and Casino Hold 'Em Poker. Most games are provided by NetEnt and Microgaming, so you are in good hands.
You've got a nice array of big jackpot games too, with Mega Moolah ranking as arguably the most well-known. Jackpots range from five- to seven-figure ones. When we visited, all the progressive jackpot games were provided by Microgaming.
Yes, there is a live casino too. You'll spot the link to it in the left-hand menu, as it isn't included in the main casino. Once inside, you'll see a different menu across the top of the page, offering all games, favourites, roulette, and blackjack. All the games are provided by NetEnt Live, so you immediately see there is a great pedigree there. Unfortunately, you don't get to try anything other than variants of Blackjack and the roulette wheel.
It might surprise you to learn there isn't a VIP club or program per se. However, as a member of the casino, you can begin collecting Volt Points when you start playing with real wagers. The FAQ reveals scant details about this, confirming that every €1 wagered receives one Volt Point. You then collect those points in your account to spend inside the Volt Shop.
You have two options here. You can use the Cash Spins Generator to swap 1,000 Volt Points for 10 cash spins on one of 22 slot games. Alternatively, you can convert your points into real cash. You would need at least 50,000 Volt Points to do this, converting to €50 in real money.
Support and Security
The easiest and most obvious way to contact the Volt Casino team is by using the live chat facility. This can be found in the bottom right corner, regardless of which page you are on. You need to provide your name and email, along with selecting the right department – which just means choosing your language. It tells you whether they are online. Then, just type your message and hit return to get started.
They also have a contact page at the bottom of the site, opening a new window revealing their email address and street address. Keep this window open, because it leads you to many other links that aren't easy to find on the actual site. Terms and conditions, responsible gaming, and payment info are all here too.
The bottom of the site reveals links to confirm their status with the UK Gambling Commission and MGA. They also have an SSL Secure logo.
You cannot miss links to GamCare and BeGambleAware near those UKGC and MGA links. The responsible gaming area of that new window we just mentioned reveals four areas to browse through – Maintaining Control, Family and Friends, Health Check and Support.
Each section is loaded with information, including reality checks, a take a break option, and how to initiate self-exclusion from the site. We like the amount of work they've put into this area – perhaps the most important section of all.
Volt Casino packs in everything you could want to see in an online casino. Slot fans will find much to appreciate here. You'll benefit from hundreds of games from numerous developers both small and large, while enjoying the perks of the Volt Shop. While there is no standard VIP club to join, we think the Volt Shop is arguably even better. You get to control how to spend those points. Lots of providers also means lots of new games – all labelled – giving you more reason to explore Volt Casino when you get the chance.Volt Casino
