Sky Vegas Review
Sky Vegas was the original slots and casino channel for Sky's online gambling site. It's since been joined by casino and live casino options, but that doesn't detract away from Vegas. Over the years this has been one of our favourite places to play. It's simple to use, has a bundle of top slots, exclusive games and instant wins. On top of that it runs some decent promotions to boot including offering a no deposit bonus and The Prize Machine.
Sky Vegas is a simple but effective and functional site. There are no bells and whistles here. In many respects it's a good example of how casino and slot brands have had to develop in light of UKGC guidelines. Welcome offers, promotions and featured slots dominate the homepage. It's all responsive for various devices so accessing Sky Vegas on mobile, tablet and desktop is not a problem. You don't need to head to the Apple or Android store to download an app to play.
Sky Vegas Welcome Offer
No deposit bonuses have always been a key feature of Sky Vegas. At launch new players could grab a £10 no deposit bonus. Today newbies can register, login and collect 50 seriously free spins. Wins from these spins are paid in cash and no wagering terms apply. Withdrawal terms may apply. Go on and become a depositor and wager at least £10 to receive a futher 200 free spins. Again wins from these spins are paid in cash. This is probably one of the most generous welcome offers available to slots players.
As well as a generous welcome offer there's also a fabulous selection of slots and games. The games are categorised so you can easily access Must Go Jackpots, Megaway Slots, Jackpot King games, table games and instant wins. Interestingly Slingo and Eyecon Games are two of the main brands missing from the roster at Sky Vegas. Top games are available from Red Tiger, Net Entertainment and Blueprint Gaming. This means that you can enjoy titles like Fishin' Frenzy, Genie Jackpots, DaVinci Diamonds, Beavis & Butthead, Andy Capp, Aloha Cluster Plays, Ted and The Price Is Right.
Sky Vegas Promotions
Sky Vegas does have a number of exclusive games although some of the best ones like Countdown and Soccer AM Soccerettes have long gone. In many respects the exclusives have become diluted at Sky Vegas which is a shame. You can still find titles such as Eskimo Dough but there's not even a category to locate them. There are exclusive instant win games though such as Tipping Point, Celebrity Juice and Sky Bet scratchcards. Baa Wars and Super Pig Win are no longer available but it's good to see our favourite Grabba Dabba Dough is still an option.
One thing that really made us like Sky Vegas were their prize promotions. These days the brand is all about The Prize Machine. This is a daily game that can be played for free. Spin the wheel for the chance to win cash, free spins and other prizes such as free bets or bingo tickets. Bigger prizes are on offer to players who have staked £10 or more on Sky Vegas on the previous day. The Prize Machine is joined by Must Go and Daily Jackpots. Other promotions do run and may include tournaments, prize draws and bonuses.
Logging in to Sky Vegas not only gives you access to all the above, but a lot lot more. Your Vegas account allows you to visit Sky Casino, Sky Poker, Sky Bingo and of course the sportsbook. Additionally you can play free games such as Super 6, Fantasy Football, ITV Pick 7 and Sky Lotto. With all these products it's no surprise that Sky are leaders when it comes to responsible gambling. There are various tools players can utilise including cool off, deposit limits and self exclusion.
There's so much to like about Sky Vegas and from a player perspective we loved playing at it. The welcome offer, The Prize Machine, jackpots and choice of games are all very attractive. Unfortunately from a business perspective the folks at Sky screwed us over and left us with a bad taste in the mouth. Therefore we don't feel comfortable suggesting Sky Vegas as an option. Alternatives such as William Hill Vegas, The Sun Vegas and Bet365 Vegas are worthy alternatives.
