Slot Boss is one of the newer members of the Sweden-based LeoVegas AB family, which owns a number of popular properties in the UK online gaming scene. What does this one add to the lineup? Well, it is a fairly stock smaller online casino that focuses on slots. It does have a fairly substantial live casino and a number of progressive jackpot slots. However, some of the promotion terms are downright dreadful right now - particularly the welcome bonus.
We'll take a closer look at all of that in today's post.
Available Games and Software
Slot Boss has a modest total of about 425 games at the moment, with the slot selection being front and centre.
Slots make up the bulk of your gaming options here, with a count of about 385 at last check. Though not the largest selection around, it's actually a pretty robust lineup. Slot Boss draws on the services of 28 different software providers for their roster of games, a list made up of the usual big names such as IGT, Novomatic and Play 'n Go. Progressive jackpots are always popular, and you'll find 32 options to choose from here such as Andy Capp, Paws of Fury: Enter the Panda and Worms Reloaded.
The live casino is also respectable, filled out with 20 games supplied by the reliable Evolution Gaming. These include a number of interesting varieties of baccarat for big fans of the game, as well as a good variety of all the other popular games that bring people to the tables.
Options fall off precipitously once you get past the slots and live casino section, however. The table games section is populated by a meagre eight games as of this writing - one of which is the lone video poker title available here (Five Play Multi-Hand Draw Poker by Game King). The other seven are all variants of blackjack and roulette. Well, the name is "Slot Boss" after all.
The only other point of note in the house is the selection of about a dozen scratchers, which include a new Deal or No Deal game and a keno variant.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Deposit terms here are a bit more restrictive than you usually see at a UK online casino. The minimum is a reasonable £10 and there are no fees, but you can only use Visa or MasterCard.
Withdrawals could likewise be much more flexible, as you'll need to withdraw to your prior deposit method (though you can add a new card with a balance of at least £10 on hand). Even though Slot Boss only deals in credit cards, they advise that withdrawal requests will take at least a week in most cases and may take up to nine days - that's well below par among UK online casinos.
Safety and Security
Slot Boss does tick all the requisite boxes for player safety and security. It's licensed by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, SSL is used for transactions and 24/7 customer service is available. App downloads are also through the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
Bonuses and Player's Club
Unfortunately, Slot Boss does not make a great initial impression with its welcome bonus. It's a no deposit bonus offer for £10 good at the slots ... but the wagering requirement is a whopping 99x for any winnings, all but guaranteeing you'll never get anything out of it. That's a huge number and nowhere near in line with usual UK online casino expectations.
Fortunately, there is also a first deposit bonus that is a bit more standard. It's still not particularly favourable, however. Your first deposit will be matched 100% up to £50, with a 40x wagering requirement and 30 days to get through it.
As of this writing, there is also a weekly promotion available to anyone who has made a deposit of at least £10. You'll get up to £5 worth of free spins that are good at one of the progressive jackpot titles. This is the best offer of the bunch, but also appears to be a limited-time promotion.
There appears to be no loyalty programme or VIP club to speak of at this time.
Is Slot Boss Worth It?
Anyone can just go around calling themselves "the boss", but it's meaningless unless other people agree to go along with it.
Honestly, other than a fairly good selection of slots and a very solid live casino, Slots Boss just doesn't have anything to recommend it right now. The promotions aren't anything juicy, and in the case of the no deposit welcome bonus appear to sometimes be completely useless to the player. Add in the limited deposit and withdrawal terms and the lack of any visible loyalty incentives and you're left scratching your head as to why you should bring gambling money here that could go somewhere else.
Disappointing as LeoVegas is generally a solid company, but this property needs some revision to not be a total whiff. The cost of being the boss is incentivising players to play and stay with good bonuses and promotions, and Slot Boss just doesn't seem to be willing to pay that cost right now.
