Dove Slots Review
Whilst bingo headed into a bit of a lull during 2015, slots sites started to mushroom everywhere. That year saw a host of sites launch on the newly formed Dragonfish Slots Network, whilst others went mobile with Cozy Games. Nektan were also adding assets to their stable but the most activity came from a a new network - Jumpman Slots - unsurprisingly powered by Jumpman Gaming. The first arrival on this new platform was Dove Slots, a sister site to Dove Bingo.
Introducing Dove Slots
Dove Slots is a colourfully designed mobile casino site that works on desktop as well as tablets. A graphic depiction of a Las Vegas cityscape can be seen on side of the homepage whilst a hot air balloon basket of slot icons completes the right hand side. The homepage is dominated with the brand's welcome offer whilst featured slots are also shown. Is there any difference betweem Dove Slots and Dove Bingo? For the most part no but there are some subtle variations including the welcome offer mechanic.
Dove Slots Welcome Bonus
New players to Dove Slots are welcomed with the chance to win up to 500 spins on Starburst. Register, loging and deposit £10 and you'll be rewarded with a spin of the Mega Reel. Note that a win isn't guaranteed so you may win nothing, an Amazon voucher or spins on either Starburt or Fluffy Favourites. Wins from the slot spins are paid out as a bonus so wagering terms apply and these are set at x65. For comparison the Dragonfish Network's concern is usually x80. Further spins of The Mega Wheel are awarded increasing your VIP status with Trophies.
Dove Slots now offers players over 300 games to play. These include games from Net Entertainment, Pariplay, Nyx, Eyecon and Microgaming. Among the titles available are Sweetie Land, Starburst, Shaman's Dream, Piggy Payout, Piggy Riches, Jimi Hendrix, Guns N Roses, Gonzo's Quest, Fluffy Too, Eggomatic and Aloha Cluster Pays. Progressive jackpot games from Eyecon and Drops & Wins games make up quite an extensive roster on the Jumpman platform.
Dove Slots Promotions
Video poker games aren't available and you'll need to use the search options to find popular slots such as Megaways titles. Casino and bingo games are available at Dove Slots. These areas have recently undergone some improvements on the Jumpman platform. Live blackjack and live roulette are new additions whilst Jumpman have dumped their own bingo rooms in favour of third party products. This means bingo players can now play Bingo Millions and Pragmatic Play bingo rooms.
Promotions at Dove Slots are a mix of network and slot operator based. The former are easily found and include daily cashback, a newbies cashback boost, VIP program and a Winner Winner Chicken Dinner monthly prize. With the latter players have the chance to win a £50 voucher every month by having the largest win on a single spin. The slot operator tournaments and prize draws are less well publicised but do run regularly throughout the month.
As the first brand on the Jumpman Slots Network, Dove Slots promised much. However since it's launch it's been joined by over 150 other brands plus the transfer of the 15 Network group to pretty much the same platform. Player terms have improved considerably since Dove Slots launched although the x65 wagering term on the welcome offer, and other bonuses, is hefty. There's also the possibility that no bonus is awarded on your first deposit. An admin fee on withdrawals is also frustrating.
However the variety and quality of games at Dove Slots is good and it's great to see more games constantly being added. When we last reviewed Dove we said "the bingo product adds little to the site and more table games plus a live casino would improve the offering". Well the bingo product has been improved and live casino has now become part of the network. However should you sign up? Well if you've not joined a Jumpman Slots brand then the answer is yes. If you've already tried one then you may not get too much value - other than a new welcome offer - by trying another.
