King Jackpot is an enticing moniker for a gaming site. Regal. Fortuitous. Euphoric. If a marketing firm were entrusted with dissecting this brand name, they would find plenty to like. Then they’d stumble onto the King Jackpot website, and their mouths would drop open. It’s fair to say that all of King Jackpot’s effort in creating an awesome name and domain is undone when seeing their website. It is far from the worst website on the internet, but it is beginning to show its age.
In the modern day, it is quite unusual to come across online casinos that provide their software only through download. While there are several sites that function in this manner, they are remnants from a bygone period. Current websites do not do this, since modern gamers want games to load in-browser, allowing them to play on the move with their preferred device. King Jackpot features a cosmic theme, with a backdrop of space rocks and other flotsam drawn in royal purple. Things begin to go wrong when you browse down the website and come face to face with the mug pictures of’recent winners.’
Concerning King Jackpot
As is the case with many older websites, King Jackpot has a plethora of links to click, but the most of them are mercifully confined to the bottom, leaving just the necessities up top. Additionally, the interesting name of the firm behind this curious site is located at the bottom of the webpage. Daub Alderney Ltd is established on Alderney, the Channel Islands stronghold where a slew of gambling companies have their headquarters. The UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission have both approved the site. King Jackpot is an ill-matched site, one that shines – or at the very least passes – in certain areas but fails badly in others.
Halfway down the webpage, a cartoon dog dressed as an astronaut floats across space, exclaiming that there are ‘Jackpots out of this planet!’ It’s a charming touch, but one that’s undermined by the site’s previous winners’ avatars. Without intending to disparage the persons depicted, they are hardly the most photogenic of players (but who does look nice in their profile photo?) yet, as the site admits, they may not even have won these amounts at King Jackpot. It all seems like a fraud, and one that does not add one ounce of value to King Jackpot.
Banking a Fortune
King Jackpot allows deposits made with MasterCard, Visa, Solo, Switch, and Maestro, but acknowledges on its payments page that “many banks these days may simply deny credit/debit card transactions if the deposit is associated to gambling.” That is an intriguing remark, and one that may have been true a few years ago. It is true that few banks nowadays, particularly in western countries that accept internet gambling, would refuse to process gaming transactions.
In any event, King Jackpot provides other payment methods for consumers who are unable to use a credit or debit card on the site. Alternatively, you may use Neteller, PayPal, or the ‘Prepaid’ option. What is prepaid exactly? It’s the kind of prepaid card that can be purchased from corner stores, but the website does not specify whether it’s a particular brand of prepaid card or the nature of the bargain. In any event, King Jackpot advises that if you are able to use a credit or debit card, the transaction will be billed as Daub Alderney Ltd or KJackpot – Daub. There seems to be no information on the minimum deposit or withdrawal amounts.
Bonuses for Jackpots
King Jackpot’s site boldly advertises a £20 no deposit bonus. This money may be used to play bingo or slots, with any profits utilized to support further play. While the slots – or at least part of them – may be played instantaneously in-browser, the bingo and the rest of the slots need installing the site’s software.
There do not seem to be any further bonuses available at King Jackpot, although the site does provide a loyalty program. This game is divided into six stages, with players beginning at Newbie and progressing through Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and eventually Diamond. To get started, there is a 300 percent first deposit incentive, followed by a 100 percent third deposit bonus after you reach Bronze level. Increased loyalty levels provide additional benefits such as redeposit incentives, weekly promotions, a birthday bonus, a personal account manager, and faster withdrawals.
