Graphics and Software

Jack Gold Casino offers ‘Instant Play’ (Flash) software backed by some of the best software providers in the business.  

Flash technology allows you to start playing immediately without the need for lengthy downloads. It uses streaming technology which creates a realistic, very smooth-flowing gambling experience. The only downside to this software is that you must download the Flash ”plug”, the software necessary to run this program. You only need to install it once.

Software and Special Features

Jack Gold’s ”Privacy Policy” states the various safety mechanisms it has in place to safeguard your personal and financial information. This includes sophisticated data encryption methods, controlled access, personal information verification, withdrawal verification and account identifiers.

If Jack Gold adheres to your needs as a player, fill out the registration form, select a nickname and password. The nickname acts as your handle when chatting to other players, while the password enables you to log into the game, access your account information, make deposits and request withdrawals.

Variety of Games

Jack Gold’s game variety is adequately covered. The bulk of its games are divided into video slots followed by a small table and video poker variety. The software comes with innovative graphics, 3-D images and avatars. Getting players through the door is tough, this is why the casino allows you to play ”Free Games”. This gives you a feel for the software at no risk.

The advent of new technology has seen an exponential increase in smart phones and tablets across the globe. As a result you can now play your favourite casino games right from your mobile device.

If you want to take a break from the usual game offering you can play table games against live dealers. Live dealer games are streamed to your computer via webcam. Live Casinos are popular because players can see the cards being dealt, or the ball being spun. The software interface also allows you to interact with the dealers and fellow players.

The rapid growth of this industry is driven by two factors-technology and trust. Over the years broadband internet connections improved to such an extent that it allows people to deal games like Blackjack, Baccarat and Roulette.

Sign-up Bonus

First time customers will receive a very competitive welcome bonus up to £1,000. This deposit bonus is divided into 5 consecutive deposits. The first deposit bonus is 100% up to a maximum of £150. Before you can qualify for it you must deposit £10.

Promotions

Before I sign up at a new online casino I always check the site’s promotional offers first. Basically it must offer me more bang for my buck. Jack Gold’s promotional offers are structured in such a manner that it goes beyond its initial deposit bonus.

Players will be treated to daily, weekly and weekend deposit bonuses with cash back incentives. Regular depositors also stand a chance of winning an iPad Mini. The site will keep you posted with regard to its latest promotional offers and game releases. Make sure you check your Inbox regularly.

wagering Requirements

The wagering requirements attached to the first deposit bonus of 100% up to £150 is 25 times the deposit and bonus sum. It’s slightly higher than industry standards. Games that count 100% towards the play-through requirements are all Slots and Casino Hold’Em games.

Let’s assume you deposit £100, Jack Gold will match your deposit with an extra £100 (100% match bonus). You can now play with £200. Before you can cash out your winnings you must stake £100+£100 x 25=£5,000. 

Games that count 25% towards the completion of the wagering requirements are All Roulette and Hi-Lo Gambler. In other words if you play Roulette only for every £100 you wager, £25 will count towards the completion of the play-through requirements.

The following games only count 10%: All Blackjack and Video Poker. Progressive games count 0%.

Once you’ve completed the play-through requirements, any bonus that is in your bonus balance will be transferred to your cash balance.

Progressives

Because progressive jackpots are a big draw for many gamblers, most sites now offer jackpot trackers that provide real-time listings of the biggest jackpots that can be played.

Microgaming software is responsible for the progressive games that can be played at Jack Gold Casino. Progressive jackpots offered are Cash Splash, Mega Moolah and Major Millions. If you manage a progressive win on any of these games suffice it to say it might be a life changing event!

Before you can qualify for a progressive win you must stake at least 15 coins per spin. Presently Cash splash boasts an average RTP  (Return to Player) of 91%.

Player Support

Although many players don’t look into it, customer service is one of the most crucial elements of any internet casino. If there’s a problem, these guys are your first and maybe your only line of support. Support at Jack Gold Casino is good and can be contacted through live chat, email, telephone and normal mail.
