Dr Slot Casino – the best mobile games in the UK!
Ever since Dr Slot first launched back in early 2018, we’d been champing at the bit to give this brand new mobile casino a try. It promises exciting, exclusive mobile slots games, a 3-part welcome offer, and great ongoing bonuses to keep existing players just as happy as the new recruits. But does this Intouch Games owned brand deliver on those promises and offer a mobile casino experience that stands out from the crowd? Here’s what we found when we joined Dr Slot Casino…
Welcome Offer & Bonuses
We’ll start at the beginning, which is the sign-up process and that welcome bonus. We created an account at www.drslot.co.uk which was pretty straightforward. Then, we received a text message asking us to enter a code to activate the account. When that was done, we received the first part of the welcome offer; 20 free spins, locked to a specific game. We got Super Fruit Bandit, which was a great first game to try out. We managed to get into the Fruit Loop bonus feature and pick up a decent multiplier, so not a bad start!
To get parts 2 and 3 of the welcome bonus, you’ll need to make a deposit of £10 on more onto your account. That unlocks 10 days of free spins, which means you get a text message every day for 10 days, telling you that you have 10 free spins to use. So that adds up to another 100 free spins on top of the 20 you got for joining.
Part three is up to £1,000 in deposit boost bonuses! Here’s how they’re broken down, direct from the Dr Slot site:
- First deposits are matched 200%, giving a bonus worth up to £50
- Make a second deposit and it'll be matched 100% up to £100
- 3rd deposit will be matched by 50%, giving a bonus worth up to £200
- 4th will also be matched by 50%, again giving a bonus worth up to £200
- 5th deposit will be matched by 25%, giving a bonus worth up to £450
So you’ll have to spend a lot to max out those deposit boost bonuses, but we stuck to £20 each time and got a total of £85 free – plus 120 free spins. Can’t argue with that!
What about bonuses for existing players? Well luckily, Dr Slot Casino delivers on that front too, including:
- £5 bonus for referring a friend through the app or website
- New game bonuses (they aim to release one new game a month)
- Loyalty bonuses via SMS for regular, active players
- Facebook competitions to win free bonuses
As you’d expect from any casino, there are terms and conditions on all bonuses, so give them a read through before you commit to anything. Also, Dr Slot has a wagering requirement of x40 on free bonuses, so bear that in mind too.
As a fairly new casino, it wasn’t a huge surprise that Dr Slot doesn’t have a huge selection of games to choose from. This is, even more, the case when you learn that all of its games are developed in-house by parent company Intouch Games, so they don’t buy in any titles from other developers.
For that reason, you won’t see the usual games that often make up the line-up on most online casinos’ game grids. Instead, you have a small but exclusive selection of slots games and at the time of writing, one casino game; 3D Roulette by Dr Slot.
The first game that caught our eye was Rainbow Slots – an Irish themed game set in a forest, full of fairies and leprechauns. The graphics on this one are really impressive, and it has a board game style bonus feature where you can win a lot of multipliers in one go. This one also has a gamble feature, so you can risk your wins and try for a bigger one. Depends how brave you’re feeling!
We also tried out All the 7s, which is much more of a classic fruit machine style slots game with traditional symbols. If you like your games more stripped back and old-school, this one could be right up your street. That’s the nice thing about the selection of games Dr Slot has to offer – there’s something for everyone, and each game is great quality.
Of course, it would be nice to see a wider choice of games, and we’re told Dr Slot is working on that. They aim to release one new custom-built game every month, so it shouldn’t be long before that improves.
Deposits & Withdrawals
Right, so if you like what you see and want to make a deposit, what are your options? Dr Slot accepts payments by credit/debit card, Skrill or Paysafecard and you’ll need to make a deposit of at least £5 with any of those methods. They also offer a pay by phone bill option, where you can have your deposit amount added onto your monthly bill, or if you’re on pay as you go, they’ll take it from your available credit. This is a really quick and easy way to deposit, and the minimum here is only £3. Just bear in mind here that you’re essentially playing with credit, so be sensible and make sure you don’t spend more than you can afford to pay off.
If you have winnings to withdraw, you can request a transfer to your bank account or Skrill. If you’ve previously used a card to make a deposit, you’ll also have the option to withdraw to that same card. It’s good to see that there’s no minimum withdrawal amount that you need to reach, but be aware that if you withdraw less than £10 you’ll be charged £3 for processing.
Dr Slot tells us that it takes 3-4 working days for withdrawals to reach the banking team for processing, and then you may be asked to provide ID. If you have the app on your phone, you can send this in with the ‘send ID’ feature. Then once all ID is received and checked, your payment should be approved. This sounds a little longer than it might take with some casinos, but we can also appreciate how many security checks are now required. Our advice? Just get your ID sent in promptly and be patient – you should be fine.
Safety & Security
Obviously, security is more important than ever right now, so we checked out what measures Dr Slot has in place to protect players. Players’ personal information and transactions are kept safe with 256-bit TLSv1.2 digital encryption. In conclusion, there’s nothing to worry about on that front.
Next, we wanted to know more about the regulation of the games, especially as these are all built in-house. Reassuringly, as Intouch Games is regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, they’re really hot on this. Each new game has to go for an audit at a lab that’s been approved by the UKGC. It’ll undergo testing there to make sure it’s fair and that they’re happy with the RTP%, before it can get the certificate it needs in order to be released. So if it’s not up to scratch, it won’t get to go live.
The last point to consider here is responsible gambling. Of course, we all hope we’ll never need to use these responsible gambling tools, but it’s good to know they’re there. Dr Slot is GamCare certified, which means they’ve achieved high levels of commitment to responsible gambling. They have tools available like session limits, cool down periods, deposit limits and self-exclusion, plus they’re registered with GamStop. That means if you’ve signed up to the GamStop service, you’ll be blocked from accessing Dr Slot or any other Intouch Games casino site.
Help & Support
Sometimes, getting answers when you need them can be a total hassle, but thankfully that’s not the case here. Dr Slot has a UK-based call centre that’s open 24/7, so you can always give them a quick call if you need anything. You can call on 01384 445435 or text ‘support’ to 84901 and they’ll give you a callback. You can also email [email protected], but it says on the website that it can take 24 hours to get a reply, so it might be better just to have a quick chat on the phone.
If you’ve got the Dr Slot app, that makes it even easier to get hold of someone. It has a ‘support’ menu where you can request a callback or use live chat to speak to someone. It’s even got an option for you to send in your ID if you’ve been asked for any, so that speeds up that whole process. It’s also worth taking a look at the FAQs section on the website, as we saved ourselves a call by finding the answer to our question in there.
There’s an awful lot to like here, and that’s great to see from such a new mobile casino. The unique games are seriously impressive, and we can’t wait to see more of them added to the mix. The welcome bonus gives you plenty of bang for your buck, and it’s good to see that existing players have been though about too, with regular bonuses available to them. We’d love to see a wider selection of games (that’ll come with time) and it would be great it withdrawals were a bit speedier. That said, Dr Slot is definitely worth a look if you enjoy discovering something different and having a ton of fun in the process.
