Velvet Slots is a gaming site with a charmingly retro look and feel, complete with a female mascot dressed in red plaid and a handkerchief tying her hair. This is a cosy, warm Dragonfish-powered casino with an especially casual atmosphere that will reassure newer players.
Although appreciated, Velvet’s 100% bonus match up to (merely) £25 is not ‘whopping’ bonus, as the site claims. It gives us two impressions: one, this is a casino geared for newbies (who don’t know what kind of benefits are out there for new members to grab up), and two, it’s possible that Velvet just doesn’t believe in over-inflated bonus promises.
Instead, at Velvet Slot you’ll look forward to daily promotions (luck of the draw, really), and loyalty points, which of course are nothing new. We will tell you straight up that the bonuses at Velvet Slots are not particularly plush — we’ll be checking back to see whether the situation improves once this new casino gets more up to speed. At the moment, bonuses are not so velvety here.
Also, don’t forget to check the site’s Ts&Cs for full details about restrictions on its bonuses.
Make no mistake about the fact that Velvet Slots casino is slots-heavy. But we are talking about over 250 slots in the collection — plenty of choices that surely will last a very long time for adventurous punters.
This is definitely a valuable aspect of Velvet, even if its promotions programme is a bit weak. One of the advantages of playing on such a prestigious gaming system is peace of mind, since Dragonfish is very streamlined and offers the extra details that experienced players look out for.
One of the real benefits of Dragonfish is that it treats us to game titles from competitors alongside its own. So you get popular Dragonfish titles, but also a mega popular game like Fluffy Favourites (by InTouch), and Starburst or Gonzo’s Quest (NetEnt), and Rainbow Riches (the Irish classic from Barcrest).
These games do not require downloading software or a mobile app. We do indeed like the fact that Velvet has restricted its portfolio to slots with at least 95% RTP (return to player percentage). Still, you’re advised to not have strict expectations, because the RTP is only an approximate and it’s gauged over a long time over the slot’s lifetime.
Yet another detail we admire about Velvet Slots (more precisely about its Cassava/Dragonfish platform) is the fact that the site attempts to provide fast cashouts and is backed up by 24/7 customer support.
The payment and withdrawal options are great at Velvet, since among them is the stellar PayPal, along with Neteller (another e-wallet), as well as the Paysafecard voucher, and others like Entropay. In terms of the banking services here, we have no complaints.
Our overall opinion of this site is positive, although we still think its promotions could use improvement, with an obvious lack of a Velvet Slots no deposit bonus offer.
We would say that this slots site would be perfect for casual punters with a moderate expectation of winnings. Those who do not play often will not be too concerned about the lack of big bonuses.
Lastly, we can round up our review by mentioning that Velvet is sporting a Gibraltar License, for those who like to stay on UK-approved casinos. And if you like a sorta’ retro theme, well then this is your kind of joint.
