Review of SlotJoint Casino
The folks running SlotJoint Casino obviously believe in the old mantra that sex sells, because the first thing you see at its website is a chesty model, and scrolling down the page you will no doubt notice game thumbnails that seem to strategically accentuate the golden globes. Putting the breasts to one side for a moment, SlotJoint seems to be a solid online betting site, with a large gaming library, diverse banking options, and 24 hour support.
Software and Game Selection
SlotJoint is a browser-based casino, which means that you do not have to download and install any software to your PC or Mac in order to play at the site. The casino s website is easy to navigate, and I was able to sign up for an account within a few minutes. Games can be categorised and filtered using a menu on the left side of the screen, while matching games are listed in the expected grid of game logo thumbnails. There is a quick search box that allows you to search for specific games by their title. There is also a dedicated mobile site which allowed me to access a bunch of games from my iPhone and it is one of the more robust I have come across, with nearly 200 games available on the go.
Banking and Customer Support
In terms of banking options, SlotJoint has a bunch. The site offers deposits through credit cards, various eWallets, prepaid debit cards, and more. Deposits are handled instantly, with the minimum deposit being $20. Withdrawals are processed through wire and eWallets, with the first option taking 3-8 business days, and eWallet transactions being paid out as fast as an hour after submission.I was asked to verify my identity by supplying documents on the first withdrawal and it ended up being paid after 48 hours or so. I was enormously pleased to find that my second withdrawal, made a few days later, was paid in under an hour after I contacted support and asked if it could be pushed through.
That is right: this casino is discriminating against players that use the self exclusion and/or responsible gambling controls by lowering their payout limits (along with so called "inactive" players that have an account balance). By extension they are actively discouraging the use of said controls. This is a despicable practice and one which significantly reduces my opinion of this casino.
The bonus policy at this casino is friendly to players. It allows you to withdraw your cash funds after claiming a bonus, but before completing the wagering requirements. The way this works is that you play with your cash funds first, and until your balance has dropped into the bonus funds, the bonus is basically not counted as being claimed. So if you do have an early big win, you can forfeit the bonus and withdraw straight away so long as you have not played with the bonus funds.
Customer support is available 24 hours a day through live chat, email, and telephone. To their credit, I found the staff quick to respond when I paged them to ask about how to find the RTP numbers as well as some wagering requirements. They were able to point me in the right direction for the numbers, which shows the staff has a good grasp on even the more obscure questions someone may ask.
Security, Fairness, and Responsible Gaming
SlotJoint does a good job of securing player data by using SSL encryption technology at all times. This encrypts or scrambles all information transferring between your computer and the casino has servers so that it cannot be intercepted or captured by unauthorised third parties. This security applies to all aspects of the site, from logging in to playing and banking.
Each of the game suppliers at this casino have their software audited to ensure that their results are properly randomised. While the casino does not publish any actual payout figures, it does publish the theoretical RTP percentages for most of its games. To view this information you need to switch the default logo thumbnail view to list view when sorting the game library.
In an attempt to promote responsible gaming, SlotJoint has deposit limit controls, self-exclusion features, a full gaming history, loss limits, and links to outside counselling groups, which can provide assistance should you have the need to. However, as detailed above in the payments section, the casino is actively trying to discourage players from using these controls by lowering the payout limits if you do so.
