Launched in September 2017, Highroller set out to take on the world of Online Casinos by targetting, well you probably guessed it from the name, Highrollers. Now I am no Graphical Designer or Branding genius, but can anyone tell me what about this looks ‘Highroller’? Is it that all Highrollers are square-jawed? The guy in the corner looks like Ron Swanson and American Dad had a secret love child.
However, once you have gotten over the juxtapose mishap, the site is actually really good. Registration is your standard set of info, but the colorful cartoon page actually makes it less boring than usual, and if you are anything like us, you’ll have the registration part done and your account verified the code sent by SMS in no time.
Why play at High Roller
Why should you choose to play at Highroller? You might be put off by the name, thinking ‘I am no Highroller, I should go play somewhere else’. Nothing could be further from the truth. Highroller is not just for Highrollers, heck, it is not even for Highrollers at all. It is for everyone else who just want to sit back and enjoy their slots in a relaxed environment. The simplistic and slimmed down layout together with their loyalty system makes the time spent between winning in one slot to finding your next target a bit more enjoyable.
Their loyalty system is a dark tale of a crime-ridden city called Metrocity. As they write themselves:
‘Welcome to Metrocity, a dark metropolis full of thrills, heists, games and rewards. Play casino games, pillage your way through Metrocity districts and accumulate a wealth of rewards in the process. But stay on the move, or you will be the next target…’
Yeah, it sounds more exciting than it is, we are in an Online Casino after all. However, to be honest it has good rewards as you level up and we are all here for the slots after all so anything extra is just the cherry on top.
Highroller offers new customers a simple but effective 100% up to €100 deposit bonus on their first deposit.
Here are the key take aways from their Terms and conditions:
- 45xBonus wagering requirement (Only welcome bonus. Future bonuses has 35xBonus wagering requirement)
- Max bet of €5
- 30 days to wager the bonus
- Various games you are not allowed to play with bonus money. Bonus balance is not shown when opening these games.
- Real money restricted for withdrawal until bonus wagered.
Highroller has focused on making their site as slim and as easy to use as possible. Nothing to stand in the way of you getting high and rolling from rags to riches. Unlike many other online Casinos, they have chosen a layout with very large thumbnails, most likely targeting the visually impaired or the elderly. When it comes to their offering, they have the majority of the big Game Studios and as you can see in the screen shot, they also have one of our all time favourite, but oh so fickle, slot Montezuma from Williams Interactive.
Although their focus is on Slots, you can find a quite large Live Casino section as well; A must when try to serve Highrollers. You’ll find the full range of Evolution Gaming with Roulette, Blackjack, Casino Hold’em, Caribbean stud and so on, but also games from Netent Live. Although not as big as other Casinos we have review, you can certainly satisfy your card playing, ball rolling and dice throwing needs.
Just like other good online Casinos, Highroller focuses a lot of effort and energy on getting their customers to come back through clever promotions and competitions. Although their exclusive in-house competitions are few and far apart, they push the Network promotions offered by Game studios such as Netent and Microgaming. Last year, in Netent’s ‘Edge of Space’-competition, the players had a chance to win to get shot through the atmosphere on a jet aircraft and experienced views only known to a few.
A lot of their effort is instead focused around their Level Up system and the ‘Stings” which happens on regular occasions in Metrocity and allows to to collect some extra coins which you can they go nuts with in the stacked-to-the-brim Loyalty shop.
With your hard earn Loyalty Coins, you can hit the Highroller Shop and go on a spending spree. You can buy anything from Free Spins, to Mega Spins, to Uber Spins. Yes, the store looks like the inside of a Venezuelan supermarket. Although, the visually impaired and elderly will not have any problem finding their wares here either.
Given that their Bonus Terms and Conditions stated that winnings from Free Spins must be wagered 35 times unless otherwise stated, it begs the question which intern thought it was a good idea to write ‘#NoWagering!’ as a way to inform the customer of the change in terms.
With Highroller, you can trust that your payment will be provided. As part of the Betit group of brands, you can be sure that your money is safe and secure. They offer a vast majority of payment methods through the iGaming Cloud technical platform, which is the same platform used by many other brands such as Rizk, GUTS and Dunder.
Short of paying with live stock, you can probably get your money in unless they are in some obscure payment platform. But then again, obscure to us at SlotMad might be normal to you. If you do find a method they do not cater for, please let us know and we’ll update this section.
Highroller on mobile
The mobile experience is very good. The fact that the site uses cartoon images rather than pictures has allowed them to slim down the required media and the site loads quickly. As avid players, and people with limited Mobile Data, we here at SlotMad enjoy the brands who put in that extra effort to make it easier for us, the End user.
Featurewise, you find everything in your phone as you would on your desktop. Even the document uploader which is often neglected on the Mobile version forcing us players to use another device.
4.5 out of 5 is our final verdict. Could they have gotten 5? Maybe with another name or branding direction. But if that is not an issue for you, we highly recommend you try out Highroller!
