While their domain names may have changed over the years, Slotland has been around for a very long time in the online gambling world. First launched in 1998, they have always operated on their own proprietary software; which has certainly evolved over time - but has always been web-based without the need for software downloads or Flash plugins (well, usually - there are a couple of Flash games still available.)

This made their games look and feel very antiquated during a good portion of the last 20 years while their competitors had all the functionality of full software packages and the animation capabilities of (now all but dead) Flash plugins - but with the growing popularity of mobile players and the inability to offer downloadable gambling platforms on devices such as iOS, things have come full circle and just about every online casino uses HTML5 to deliver games to their players now.

Despite their running start in making browser based games and the progression they've made, their game variety is still sub-par when compared to other venues - largely because they don't license games from other providers as is the norm for most casinos. They have their own games, and that's it. On the bright side, that does make the slots at least unique* if you're looking for something new to play.

* Other casinos operated by 'Slotland Entertainment S.A' will also offer the same games with very few differences between the venues, however they're operated by the same group.

Games Offered:

With a name like Slotland, if you guessed their focus would be on slot machine games you'd be right. At the time of writing this, they offer 77 different slot games - a handful of them running on Flash that won't be available to mobile players (or likely anyone in the very near future unless they're ported.) These are older games granted, and you're probably not missing out on much my avoiding them - though I'd argue they should separate them somehow to make the distinction.

Some of these slots are actually pretty well done production wise, more so with the newer games than the older ones (some of the older ones are probably 20 years old at this point if not older - and it shows.) And once again you won't find them anywhere else not operated by SlotLand Entertainment - so there's definitely some entertainment to be had here, especially if you're looking for something different.

Slotland also has a good number of progressive slot games available, though they're not fed into as much as progressives elsewhere because of a more limited player base - so tend to grow slowly.

Betting amounts can vary significantly among the slots games offered, with some allowing line adjustments and coins per line adjustments making for bets as low as a couple of cents, and others with a minimum bet of 80 cents (USD). While that's not exactly high-roller minimums, it may not appeal to some more casual players who would like to get more playing time out of smaller deposits. Spin maximums can go all the way up to hundreds per spin depending on the game.

Asides from their slots library, Slotland has a respectable number of video poker games available; Aces & Eights, Aces & Faces, All American, Deuces & Joker Wild, Double Bonus, Jacks or Better, Joker Wild and Tens or Better varieties, with most available in both single and multi-hand varieties. Like video poker games in general there's nothing that particularly stands out about any of them, but they play just fine with a reasonable variety of betting options for low to mid range players. There's also a single keno game called Keno 101 bundled along with the video poker games in the menu, a single ticket, single player quick playing game that also looks and plays well enough for what it is.

But that's where the game options end. If you're looking for an occasional game of blackjack or maybe hoping to play through a few spins on roulette - you're out of luck. There's no 'table' games at all here, which I suppose does fit in with the "Slotland" theme, but may leave some players wanting for more.

As a whole; compared to other online casinos Slotland definitely doesn't have a wide variety of offerings, in fact they're quite small and the lack of table games will be disappointing to some. With that said - if you're primarily a slots and video poker player, you might enjoy the unique games available here as well as the perks.

Bonuses Offered:

While the game variety leaves a lot of room for improvement, one place that Slotland excels in is the bonus department. Offering both generous sign up bonuses and ongoing promotions with much better than average play through requirements (normally 25x, it's one of the main reasons they have good customer loyalty and the longevity they do.

  • New players currently receive a 100% bonus on their first deposit up to $100 free, a 50% bonus on their next 9 deposits also up to $100.
  • Players receive a $100 'cashback' bonus for every $1000 (10%) they deposit with a paltry 1x wagering requirement!
  • Newsletter subscribers get to play a mini-slot for a chance to win a 30%, 50% or a 100% reload bonus every month.
  • VIP players get additional bonuses as well as increased cashback and mini-slot bonuses.
  • Additional bonuses are constantly available, including game specific ones (i.e. playthrough is only counted on progressives) and weekly draws.

Our Verdict:

While they don't have a great variety of games as a whole, lots of their slots offerings are fun and unique, and their video poker selection is quite good. Slotland's biggest upsides are their bonuses and promotions for both new and existing players, and a solid reputation after more than 20 years online. For those not looking for table games and perhaps seeking something different in the slots department, it's definitely worth a try.
