Introduction to Sloty
Launched in 2016 and licensed through the Malta Gaming Authority and UK Gambling Commission, Sloty Casino joined the New Zealand online gambling market in 2016. It’s owned and operated by Genesis Global Limited Casinos, who are themselves a new kid on the block when it comes to online casinos.
They got their operating license in 2016 too and currently have six other casinos under their umbrella in addition to Sloty, including Genesis Casino, Casino Joy, Vegas Hero, SpinIt, and Casino Cruise. All online casinos from Genesis Global Limited Casinosare available in New Zealand.
Sloty Casino offers players over 1,300 online slots as well as video poker and table games including poker, roulette and blackjack, and more than 500 are available as mobile games. All the games come from some of the leading names in the industry including Microgaming, Quickspin, NetEnt and Evolution Gaming. Live gaming is available through NetEnt and Evolution.
As the name might suggest, the main pull of Sloty Casino, and what will attract players, is the wide range of slots available. There are so many, it’s hard to know where to start. Thankfully, the site is easy to navigate if you have a favourite or are looking for a particular theme, meaning finding a game to play is only a few clicks away.
And, while it isn’t in the top ten most popular casinos with New Zealanders yet, there’s huge potential based on its looks, sign-up bonus and the chance to win big through mega jackpot games such as Divine Fortunes and Hall of Gods.
Plus, Sloty Casino and its owners Genesis Global Limited Casinos seem determined to make a big impression with players through their brightly coloured site (which is very eye-catching), great bonus offer (up to NZ$1,500 and 300 free spins), and ongoing promotions that give players plenty of chances to win, thanks to free spin offers and additional cash offers that currently include 20% on deposits through their Game of the Week or Happy Hour events.
Does Sloty have NZ$?
Sloty Casino, as well as all the other casinos in the Genesis Global Limited Casinos family, operate legally in New Zealand and all accept New Zealand Dollars (NZ$). This includes a current offer that gives players a NZ$1,500 bonus, paid out across their first four deposits, as well as 300 free spins when they first sign up. Remember, though, that as with any promotion or sign-up bonus, regardless of the casino, there will be terms, conditions and restrictions that apply to how much of the bonus you receive, how long you have to use it and the games you can use it on.
Sloty Casino Software
Sloty Casino uses cloud-based gaming and software from a range of established game makers as well as up and coming developers. We’ve already mentioned a few (NetEnt, Microgaming, Quickspin and Evolution Games) but there’s also LuckyStreak, Play’n Go, OryxGaming, Red Tiger, and NYX, all of which produce games that get good reviews and are popular amongst new and established players.
This means there is likely to be a game for every player, no matter how experienced - or inexperienced - they are. Plus, there are plenty of options for those who want to play on the go, including through mobile and tablet with games designed to be played online, meaning there shouldn’t be any problems loading them or issues with their hanging in the middle of gameplay (the last thing you want when you are looking to win big).
With a tagline like ‘City of Slots’ you would expect Sloty Casino to have some well known and popular games to offer players, including ones that could lead to big wins. In fact, it has over 1,300 slots to choose from including some of New Zealand players' favourites, games such as Book of the Dead, Mega Moolah, Gemix, Aloha, Wins of Fortune and Starburst Slots.
Then there are newer games such as Rainbow Jackpots, Zombie Hoard, and Raging Rex, all of which are fun to play. Alongside these you’ll find classic slots such as Mystery Joker, Lucky Streak, and Jackpot Jester as well as video poker and over 25 progressive jackpots that could make you a millionaire; Progressive Jackpots include Megah Moolah, Hall of Gods, and Holmes and the Stolen Stones. Finally, under the Other Games section, there is the chance to play scratch cards and Keno.
One of the nice things about getting access to so many games is that you know there’ll be something you can play because there is such a mix of wagering requirements, anything from NZ$0.01 a bet through to hundreds of dollars, meaning everyone has a chance to make money.
You can also play the games for free, allowing you to work out what type of slots you enjoy, the rules of the game, and how much you might need to wager in order to win big enough to make it worth your while.
Sloty Mobile Product & App
While Sloty Casino doesn’t have a mobile app, it does have a nicely designed and easy to use mobile site which works just as well whether you are using a mobile phone or a tablet. There are over 500 mobile games available through their mobile site including slots, video poker and table games. You can navigate between them with the touch of a finger and experience all the excitement you would when playing on your PC; some games even have some added bells and whistles to make playing even more fun.
Live Casino at Sloty
You can play a wide number of table games on Sloty Casino with a live dealer. These include roulette, blackjack, baccarat, Caribbean stud, three card poker, Texas Hold’em and Dream Catcher - not bad for a site that is predominantly aimed at people who want to play online slots. You know you’re going to get a good live game, too, given that they’re designed by Evolution Gaming and NetEnt. Plus, they can be played on mobile devices as well as your PC, meaning you aren’t going to miss out on live gameplay when you’re on the go.
One thing worth mentioning is that it isn’t that easy to find the live games option on the home page. The first thing you see when you go to the site are banners including information on the sign-up bonus as well as current promotions. You need to sign in to get rid of these.
You’ll then see the slots first and have to scroll down to get to the other gaming options. About halfway down the page, you’ll see a bar that includes all the games you can play including new slots, popular slots, and classic slots as well as jackpots, roulette games, table games and the live casino. You need to click on this to get to the games you can play with a live dealer.
Your other option is to choose Live Casino through the drop-down menu on the top left-hand side of your screen. You then need to go to Games then Live Games to get there. This probably isn’t a big deal if you’re on Sloty Casino to play slots but might be a bit frustrating if you want to play other games.
Sloty Banking Methods and Payment Options
Making a deposit is easy with Sloty Casino thanks to the wide range of payment methods on offer including debit cards, credit cards, E-wallet payments, prepaid cards, Instant Banking, Fast Bank transfers and bank transfers.
The site accepts Visa, Mastercard, and online payments through Neteller, PaySafeCard, Skrill, Trusty, Entercash, Sofort Banking, GiroPay, Boku, Euteller, EcoPayz, Entropay, Interac, iDebit, Instadebit, and EasyEFT. All payment options are listed in their terms and conditions so you might need to check which are valid for New Zealand-based players before you sign up to online payment sites.
All payment methods are free, and money appears in your account instantly. There is a minimum deposit of NZ$10 regardless of the payment method used, each of which has a different maximum deposit allowed (you can transfer NZ$5,000 using your Visa card, for example, but only NZ$300 on the PaySafeCard).
There is no limit on how many times you can make a transfer into your account. However, if you want to make sure you keep control of your spending, you can set limits on how much the site will accept.
Sloty Withdrawal Times
You can withdraw your money at any time through any of the methods listed above other than PrePaid Cards, Mobile Banking, EntroPay, and the PaySafeCard. Money needs to be withdrawn in the currency it was deposited in and must be linked to an account in your name; Sloty Casino will not send money to a third party.
Depending on the withdrawal method, there may be a delay in getting your money. For example, credit or debit cards can take up to three days for the money to reach your account, as do bank transfer while E-Wallet transfers should be instant. There are no fees for withdrawing money.
A minimum withdrawal of NZ$10 applies to any withdrawal and, as with deposits, there are limits on how much you can withdraw at any one time; this is to stop money laundering and is set at NZ$22,000 a month and NZ$5,500 a week. You can make as many withdrawals as you like. However, you cannot make more than one withdrawal every 24 hours. You also cannot withdraw money unless you have verified your account, which requires you to upload proof of your identity, your address and payment methods.
One of the ways Sloty Casino is trying to distinguish itself from other online casinos is through its customer service which includes a live chat option (this appears as soon as you enter the site) and the use of social media to communicate with its members.
Support is available 24/7 through Facebook (by either posting on their page or using Instant Messaging), Twitter (by directing a tweet to them or using Direct Messaging) or through Instagram. Players can also use the option of sending an email or picking up the phone and using one of the international phone numbers available. Again, support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Before players contact support (unless it’s an emergency) they could try the excellent Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section which should answer most of their queries, as do the terms and conditions, though these can be a bit more difficult to read through as they are written in 'legal speak'.
The FAQs are really easy to navigate, breaking questions down into popular topics, including how long it will take to get free spins, how long withdrawals take, how long it takes to verify your account and how you verify your account, as well as sections on Responsible Gaming, Your Account, Account Security, Deposits and Withdrawals, Bonuses and Promotions, and Technical Issues.
FAQs are available by clicking the ‘?’ symbol at the top right-hand corner of the screen. One of the nice things about the FAQs is that you don’t get sent somewhere else on the site to find the answers which happens on other sites. Instead, they appear immediately under the question when you click on it.
Sloty Welcome Bonuses, Bonus Codes, Free Spins and Other Offers
With Sloty.com you get an NZ$1,500 welcome bonus along with 300 free spins over your first four deposits. They’re broken down as follows:
- 1st Deposit: 100% of your deposit up to NZ$300 plus 300 free spins on Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Red Riding Hood or Aloha!
- 2nd Deposit: 50% of your deposit up to NZ$400
- 3rd Deposit: 25% of your deposit up to NZ$400
- 4th Deposit: 25% of your deposit up to NZ$400
You don’t need a code for your first deposit, but you do for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th which are WSLOTY2, WSLOTY3 and WSLOTY4 respectively. You’ll need to enter these in order to claim your bonus. If you don’t, you can’t be awarded it retrospectively.
You also have the option of not claiming a bonus, something some players do as it can impact how much of your winnings you can withdraw if they were won through your bonus funds.
You’ll need to open an account to claim your bonus and make a deposit of at least NZ$10. Your cash bonus will be credited to your account straight away while your 300 free spins can take between 24 and 48 hours to appear. Once they do, you’ll need to use them over 10 consecutive days and at 30 spins a day.
While your free spins can only be used on certain slots (Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, Red Riding Hood or Aloha!), your cash bonus can be used on any of the casino’s games, although it is applied in different ways:
- For most slots, including video slots, your wager is made up 100% of your bonus.
- For classic slots, 75% of your wager is made up of your bonus.
- For Fruit Blast slots, 50% of your wager is made up of your bonus.
- For Simsalabim, Big Bad Wolf, Supernova, Hot Ink, and Arabian Rose slots, 20% of your wager is made up of your bonus.
- For table games other than Blackjack, 10% of your wager is made up of your bonus.
- For Blackjack, 5% of your wager is made up of your bonus.
You can’t use your bonus on live table games or jackpot games in addition to some slots. These are: Beautiful Bones, Castle Builder, Castle Builder II, Cool Buck, Dragons Myth, Forsaken Kingdom, Peek-a-Boo, Scrooge, Untamed Bengal Tiger, Untamed Crowned Eagle, Stardust, Untamed Giant Panda, Untamed Wolf Pack, Blood Suckers, Dead or Alive, Devil’s Delight, Eggomatic, Jack Hammer 2, Kings of Chicago, Mega Joker, Robin Hood, The Wish Master, Tomb Raider, Zombies, Eye of the Kraken, Tower Quest, Pearls of India, Tomb Raider 2, Big Bang, Jackpot 6000, Super Nudge 6000, Vampire: The Masquerade - Last Vegas and Gem Rocks.
In order to claim your bonus or any winnings, you’ll need to wager the bonus or any winnings from free spins, 40 times before you can make a withdrawal. Cash bonuses are only available for 14 days after they are credited to your account. If they aren’t used in this time they are forfeited, along with any related winnings. This means it’s important you understand how they are applied so you don’t get caught out playing games that don’t use your bonus and lose any winnings you’ve earned.
It’s worth mentioning as well that if you have real money and bonus money in your account, real money is always used first. You can check your real and bonus balances by going to the My Account section on the site; again, it’s important you understand how much money you have so you don’t lose out on any bonuses or any bonus winnings.
Sloty Player Loyalty Programmes, VIP Clubs, Reloads and Promotions
As well as a sign-up bonus, Sloty Casino offers other promotions which change regularly and are available by clicking on the drop-down menu in the top left of the screen. Current promotions include:

Sloty Responsible Gambling
As part of the group of Genesis Global Limited Casinos, Sloty is committed to supporting responsible gaming and abides by the rules laid out by both the Malta Gaming Authority (licence number: MGA/B2C/314/2015) and UK Gambling Commission (licence number: 000-045235-R-324169-007). This includes making themselves available for regular gaming commission audits.
Their site includes guidance for players who may be worried about how much they are gambling as well as signposting to organisations that support people with a gambling addiction. It allows players to set a limit on their account or take a break from playing through a cool-off period and has age verification and filters to ensure that those under 18 don’t play.
Security at Sloty
As well as operating in line with gambling regulations, Sloty Casino has SSL digital encryption that makes sure every player's data is always encrypted while it’s on their servers and during data exchanges. This means that it can’t be accessed or read by someone who does not have permission.
Their payment methods are PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant, meaning you can be confident your payments are being processed securely. Card payments are kept safe using encryption technology and Sloty Casino’s security policies are designed to make sure your financial information cannot be accessed by anyone who isn’t authorised. In addition, the Gaming Authority regularly checks Sloty Casino’s systems to make sure that they cover all their player accounts.
Sloty Fairness and Legitimacy
The Genesis Global Limited Casino group, which includes Sloty Casino, is a reputable organisation that is registered with gaming authorities and abides by their rules and regulations. They offer a great sign-up bonus and ongoing promotions which have terms and conditions applicable to them. For example, any winnings from free bonus spins have to be wagered 40 times before you can claim them. However, this is comparable with other online casinos and is considered fair.
Apart from the Live Dealer games, which are played in real time via a webcam, all Sloty Casino games use an MD5 Random Number Generator (RNG) which makes sure the symbols landing on reels or the cards being dealt are completely random. The MD5 RNG has been tested through over a million games and has been shown to produce random results. When Sloty Casino use games produced by other developers, they carry out additional tests to ensure they also randomly generate numbers. This includes an acceptance test and a functionality test. All games also receive ongoing testing once they are live on the site. In these ways, Sloty Casino can check that their games are fair at all times.
There have been no issues raised with Sloty Casino and how they operate, their fairness or legitimacy and, as such, we feel confident your money and information will be safe if you decide to sign up.
