Volt Casino, at first glance, looks like a pretty standard online casino experience. The layout is familiar, with slots taking centre stage, and the simple colour scheme means you're drawn straight to the games. Interestingly though, this casino also has its own sportsbook and digital currency. Is the site trying to do too much, or does it deliver on all these aspects for a good all-round experience? We'll take a closer look below.
There's an interesting mix of developers on board at Volt. You'll find games by well-known industry leaders like NetEnt and Microgaming, but there's a number of smaller games companies' works here too. BeeFee and Wazdan are just some examples. While there are some decent games to be found here, including the old favourite Starburst, as well as titles like Terminator 2 and Temple Quest, the actual amount of games on offer isn't that large. There are about 180 that you play across all platforms, but only in the region of 200 or so games in total.
Volt is optimised for use on both desktop and mobile devices. There's no app download, but it isn't really necessary. Generally, the functionality is identical across all formats (although as mentioned above, game choice is a bit more limited on mobile devices). It's also worth mentioning that the site also has its own sportsbook and dedicated reward pages. While these are essentially completely separate sites, they work just as well as the main casino site. If you follow sports, then this could be a very enticing feature.
While the slot selection is fairly limited when you compare Volt to some of the competition out there (many of which have at least 500 slots), there's one thing that sets it apart: the sportsbook. There are no live dealer games and limited table games too. The sportsbook, however, is very detailed, updated in real time and well presented. In some ways it seems like the casino site is an afterthought to the sportsbook. Either way, if you like a few occasional spins while you wait for a match to start, this site could be exactly what you're looking for. If you want lots of slots to play, then it might not hit the spot.
Everything is clear and easy to use at Volt. Demo plays are available on all the games, which is a nice feature, and you can browse through slots to see what's on offer. While the design is very simple, the green and black combination is an effective one and there's no clutter to make navigating the site difficult. It's easy to sort through the games on offer thanks to the categories at the top of the page. Clicking on the sportsbook and 'Volt Zone' opens separate tabs so you don't lose what you were doing on the main site.
Promotions and Bonuses
Just like most other sites, Volt offers a range of promotions to both new members and existing customers. That said, the site doesn't really advertise these offers very well at all. Generally speaking, expect free spins and percentages back on your initial deposits.
One interesting feature is the 'Volt Zone'. When you play on the casino, you can earn volt points and there are even missions you can complete to earn more points per session. It's an interesting way to cross casino gaming with video gaming goals.
Deposit and Withdrawal
All the major payment methods are supported at Volt, although there is no PayPal option as yet. Unfortunately, withdrawals are not particularly fast here, so you'll be waiting for up to 72 hours before you get your hands on any winnings. Always make sure to check about the terms of offers and deposit/withdrawal limits too. Volt doesn't have this information readily available, which is a shame as being honest and upfront with potential customers is always a better option – especially when it comes to online gaming.
Support and Security
There's a dedicated support team at Volt and you can easily find the contact information on the site. There's no phone contact, which is slightly annoying if you want to deal with something straight away, but there is live chat. Another small but important detail is that there are no hours listed for the support team, which could be problematic.
The site is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority and uses SSL encryption to protect against potential scams and attacks. Overall, it's just as well protected as any casino site, which is a good thing, as generally speaking most sites have security equal to or in excess of banking sites.
