Is Slotnite Casino legal in Canada? Yes, Slotnite Casino is available to Canadian players.
It’s not going to be much of a shocker that the casual browser will find a multitude of slots on offer at an online casino with a name like ‘Slotnite Casino’. Launched in July 2019, the site has gone down the legally serious route with license and registration from both Malta and the UK. It’s a smart move for a fresh recruit still working hard to establish itself.
The online casino opened its doors with a strong portfolio of 1,200 games not just across slots, but also covering other popular entertainment like live casino and video poker. So does the theory stand up to the test? It’s early days but we’ll dig as deep as we can.
Slotnite Casino – The Highlights
- Smartly-designed casino focusing on slot games
- Vast selection of games from trusted providers
- No fees charged for deposits and withdrawals
- Accepts Canadian players and CAD
Slotnite Casino has a fairly global audience, which means that the welcome bonus offered will differ from country to country. Canadian players can expect a combined total of up to C$1,250 in bonus cash, with 200 Free Spins thrown in on top. But this is split over your first 3 deposits like so:
- First deposit of 100% up to C$ 500, plus 100 free spins on Book of Dead slot
- Second deposit of 50% up to C$ 500, plus 50 free spins on Raging Rex slot
- Third deposit of 50% up to C$ 250, plus 50 free spins on Wild Falls slot
The above bonuses are all set to a 35 x wagering requirement, which is pretty steep for a new casino that should be trying to lure players in and away from the competition. Considering there are so many other casinos out there offering just 4 x wagering requirements or sometimes none at all, I was a little surprised.
On my first sweep of the Slotnite site, I thought that they had forgone the notion of a VIP or loyalty program entirely. Then I found a very discreet mention of ‘Slotnite XP’ in the otherwise sparse promotions page.
The loyalty program works exactly as you might expect. Players will earn this Slotnite XP with every deposit made and every bet placed. The more they accumulate, the quicker they climb through the levels, unlocking rewards and bonuses along the way. The rewards get bigger the higher you climb, and a Slotnite XP bar in the account section will help you track your loyalty level. The site gives no further details on exactly what the rewards are or how many levels are to be unlocked, so players are required to sign up to learn more about how the system works.
Slotnite Casino commissioned White Hat Gaming to run all the gaming content on their site. That’s good news as it means players can expect entertainment from most of the big names out there. A quick look through the site will establish that it hosts all the latest games from Play ‘n Go, Big Time Gaming, Quickspin, Red Tiger Gaming, Push Gaming, Nyx, Merkur, WMS and ELK across more than 1,200 games.
Canadian players based in Quebec will also have access to all NetEnt games on the site. Slotnite is one of the very few casinos currently running right now that allows players from specific parts of Canada access to the usually restricted games.
Unsurprisingly, slots make up the largest part of the gaming catalogue. In fact, it’s images of these that dominate the site’s lobby, demonstrating that they’re the online casino’s strongest offering. But that’s not all you’ll find at Slotnite, and if you’re after a break from spinning reels then you can try your luck across a handful of table games like roulette, blackjack, baccarat and poker.
Live Casino from Evolution Gaming is also on offer, but this is a very small section and wouldn’t necessarily hold the interest of a player who was specifically in search of live thrills. It’s definitely a side order rather than a main course. That being said, players can still access a small selection of live dealer games, from unique titles like Lightning Roulette and Football Studio, to more mainstream options like Texas Hold’em, Blackjack and Baccarat.
Before you can tuck in to the game menu, you’ll need to set up your account. And unless you’re addicted to free play, that also means depositing some funds and grabbing your bonus. There are several common payment methods that are supported by Slotnite’s platform, including Interac, and players can easily make a deposit by using a Visa or Mastercard credit or debit card. Other options include Trustly, Sofort, Paysafecard and standard bank wire transfers. E-wallets like PayPal are also accepted by Slotnite. This is my preferred method in terms of speed, security and cost. Not many casinos support PayPal as a deposit or withdrawal method, so this is definitely a tick in the pros column for Slotnite.
While deposits are instant, withdrawals can take up to 3 working days, which is neither too long nor particularly speedy, sitting right in the middle of average. Each transaction is secured by SSL security encryption, but I would always recommend adding your own layer of security were possible. The site won’t charge any fees, maintaining a free structure for deposits and withdrawals, but fees may be applied by external banks or e-wallets, so be sure to check this out first.
Customer Support is where Slotnite Casino really shows some weakness, but I think this mainly comes down to newness rather than inexperience. For starters players will not have any access to phone support or FAQs. The former is not likely to change, seeing as a lack of verbal support is an emerging trend that looks to be sticking around. The latter is likely to be added in due course, once management establishes what the majority of queries are about. Hopefully that means a fairly intuitive FAQ section down the line — but I’m just guessing here, people!
Players who want to reach out to Slotnite right now will have to go down one of two routes, either Email or Live Chat. A little test run of their Live Chat service showed that they’re pretty quick to respond, and the team were obviously knowledgeable and well-trained, replying directly to my questions without the use of standardized templates. Live Chat can be accessed from any page on the site and users can drop photos and screen grabs into the chat, really boosting problem-solving functionality. Email responses are also very fast considering inevitable volume. All in all the site is doing pretty well despite the lack of variety.
Slotnite Casino is a good option if you just want to spend some time playing a few slots in a fresh environment, but beyond that point things get a little iffy. The table game and live casino options are pretty small, because despite what the site might like to promote, Slotnite really is mainly about slots. Promotions are non-existent beyond the initial welcome bonus. This wouldn’t be so bad if they had a kick-ass loyalty program in place of special promotions, but this isn’t particularly striking either.
I’m banking on this site boosting its offering soon, otherwise it might find itself unable to stand up to the competition.
