Viva Fortunes Review
Viva Fortunes is another Dragonfish powered slots and casino brand from the Tau Gaming stable. Launched in May 2020 this Vegas inspired brand offers players access to a host of stunning games from top providers such as NetEnt, Eyecon, and NextGen. New players are offered a welcome package of a bonus plus spins whilst regulars can enjoy plenty of rewards. These include daily free spins, monthly cashback and exclusive offers.
Naming a new slots or casino brand can be quite difficult. Once you've appended a verb to slots, casino, reels or Vegas then you need to consider other options. Viva obviously comes from the well known phrase Viva Las Vegas whilst Fortunes are what players will be hoping for. The site is well designed with a neon lit modern Vegas style cityscape dominating the homepage. Lasers light up the sky and there's even a shooting star. The site is designed for desktop, mobile and tablet.
Viva Fortunes Welcome Bonus
New players to Viva Fortunes are welcomed with 20 spins on their first deposit of £10. Register, login and deposit £10 with the code WIND to claim. Additionally you'll receive a 50% bonus up to £50. Wagering terms apply to both offers. Winnings from the spins are capped at just £2 and come with a wagering term of x40. The bonus if you opt for that deal comes with a x60 wagering term. If you opt for the basic welcome offer then in percentage terms you're only getting up to a 10% bonus.
Viva Fortunes claims that you can find over 500 games inside it's lobby area including many top slots from the world's best slot providers. These include Eyecon, Thunderkick, IGT, Pariplay and Net Entertainment. Popular titles include Aloha Cluster Pays, Shaman's Dream, Planet Of The Apes, Magic Portals, Neon Staxx, Twin Spin, Bonanza and BerryBurst. Slots can be found by new, hot games and A to Z. Surprisingly there isn't a section for progressive jackpots or other jackpot games. We couldn't find 888 progressives like Millionaire Genie or Nightmare On Elm Street.
Viva Fortunes Promotions
Also absent from Viva Fortunes are any table game and live casino options. We couldn't find any versions of roulette, blackjack or video poker. The closest you'll get to a casino game is Casino Scratch which makes up a small smattering of instant win games. You can find Slingo at Viva Fortunes but only a few titles and you'll need to use the search to locate them. Likewise for Monopoly slots and Megaways games. The lobby area looks great and is easy to use but this site is screaming out for better organisation so as to highlight games by type and provider.
Player promotions at Viva Fortunes are limited but they do offer players the chance to get up to 50 daily free spins. The number of spins you receive is based on your VIP Level. To climb the levels you simply need to be a regular player. To qualify for the daily spins players must deposit a minimum of £5 in the last 30 days. In addition they also need to wager a minimum of £1 on any games. Like the welcome offer this used to be a wager free bonus but this is no longer the case. Bonus funds must be wagered 40x before withdrawal.
Viva Fortunes has a number of deposit and withdrawal options. These include Paypal and Paysafecard. Interestingly the Viva Fortunes FAQ states that "depositing options including debit or credit cards" but credit cards haven't been allowed for casino deposits since April. That's a bit of an oversight and no doubt will need to be updated. You can follow Viva Fortunes on Facebook but we'd be very surprised to see anything of note being posted in terms of new games, promotions or exclusives.
New slots and casino sites are always exciting. At the very minimum it's an opportunity to pick up a new welcome offer from a new brand. After that we want reasons to switch to the new brand and see what is different when compared to other sites. Sadly Viva Fortunes falls very flat in many respects. The basic welcome offer is poor - a measly up to 10% in percentage terms. The slots available are good but woefully organised and quite limited when you consider progressives, slingo and megaways games. No table games or live casino is disappointing for a Vegas inspired brand such as Viva Fortunes.
