Jackpot City is a casino that is part of CityViews Group, through the companies running it, which are called Bayton Ltd and Baytree Ltd, and it’s also a Microgaming-powered site. These are companies which are based in Malta, and while one of them gets its gaming license from the MGA, the other is licensed through Kahnawake’s Gaming Commission. Another element which points to a certain respectability that this casino has, is its founding date, as it goes back to over two decades ago, to 1998.
A mobile friendly version of the Jackpot City casino is available, and there are actually several ways for you to access it and enjoy the content it offers. One of those options allows you to access the casino and its many games via an instant play connection, which doesn’t require Flash. The other gives you the option to download Android or iOS apps, which could be the preferred method for many that plan on gaming from their smartphone on a regular basis. Players accessing the mobile casino will be under the protection of MGA’s laws, as it uses the Malta license.
Software & Games
As a Microgaming-powered gaming site, Jackpot City has over 500 titles on offer, casino games of the highest quality for the most part. Though a majority of these titles will fall into the Slots category, there are also all major table games, card games, video slots and other popular options. A good portion of these games are instant play and they are available for mobile devices as well, though not all of them.
500+ Microgaming slot machines are available, and they cover an incredible variety of themes and features. You get classic 3-reel slots, 5-reel variants, slots with huge progressive jackpots, and more. Some will be with bet lines, others will rely on ways to win, and so on.
While branded titles, like Tomb Raider or Game of Thrones, will get the attention of a lot of players, the casino will also feature a varied mix of other themes. Taking you from Ancient Egypt, to Ireland, tropical islands or even the future, chances are that you will find whatever type of story you want, in one of those slots.
As a bit of a downside to Microgaming, is that while they have a large collection of games, many of them are quite dated by now, in some cases their launch dates going back even a decade or more. That being said, they have one or two new slot machines out each month, and so you always have something new to enjoy.
One of the areas where Microgaming is king, is in the progressive jackpots category. They have games which have paid as much as $18 million in the past, and they are close to hitting $1 billion in paid prizes overall. Jackpot City gives you access to that jackpot network as well.
Among the areas which have impressed me most, I’d say that the Welcome Bonus is a major component of Jackpot City’s offer. They cover the first four deposits that you’re making, and the big thing is that in each case you get a 100% match. In total, you get up to $1,600 for free (four bonuses of $400), as long as you’re willing to invest your own share. The requirement is then to wager the bonus amount 50x, before you can withdraw those winnings.
There is a lot more to Jackpot City, than just its welcome bonus, and you will see that in the other promotional tools that they use. You could win cruises, exotic holidays, gadgets, cash or free spins, but there is also a system with loyalty rewards and VIP rewards, which you can take advantage of.
To top things off, they also have about two different bonus match promotions each week, one for the middle and one for the weekend.
The basic payment options which Jackpot City mentions are the cards which are available via Mastercard or Visa. There are additional payment options, depending on where you live, and on that list you can find Entropay, Ukash or Neteller, among others.
Cashing out is done as quickly as possible, and usually it takes less than 48 hours for this to happen, but it depends on what type of payment option you’ve selected as well. It can happen even faster, for a VIP client.
Jackpot City might not offer the same variety of content as other Microgaminng casinos, which have multiple developers contributing with games, but Microgaming is always a solid choice, and players interested in their titles should definitely consider Jackpot City’s generous offer.
