Sky Vegas Review

Part of the global BSkyB Corporation, Sky Vegas is an instant play casino with over 250 games of all varieties – and the pick of Novomatic’s slots as well. It’s designed to appeal to the mass market and vies with only Virgin Games for the title of The People’s Casino, though Richard Branson isn’t as generous as Mr Murdoch when it comes to bonuses. 

Reputation 

Sky are one of the biggest media brands in the world and can consequently guarantee a trouble-free playing experience. Their vast wealth means they don’t have to hide behind silly bonus conditions designed to mask the truth, and they’ll always pay up quickly because they don’t need your cash to pay their next tax bill or staff overheads

Software 

Sky Vegas is entirely instant play and uses a friendly, tabloid-style format that takes you to the games as quickly as possible. You can try virtually everything in demo mode, and navigation is as easy as reading the Sun newspaper (run by the same organisation)

Games 

Sky Vegas has over 250 games on offer and new titles are added frequently, with plenty of attention given to Novomatic games. The selection team at Sky know exactly what they’re doing and will always pick games that loom large in the public’s consciousness - so naturally Novomatic’s best slots are available up front as they’re the ones you’ll see in bookmakers, service stations and gaming arcades. Of particular note is the infamous Reel King:

This 5 reel, 20 line game looks rather rudimentary at first, and indeed the standard game seems like a classic pub fruit slot with fruit symbols, wilds and a basic jackpot tariff, however when the Reel King symbol appears - completely at random - then you're taken to a bonus game with 3 dedicated bonus round reels that spin repeatedly until you play a losing game.

There' nothing flashy about Reel King - it's one of those classic formats that doesn't need fancy visuals of Hollywood movie clips, and that's probably why many players seem to be seeking it out at the moment.

Another first-stop game is Lucky Lady’s Charm. This is Novomatic’s stylish take on the Irish Luck theme, and was so good that it even spawned its own feature roulette game. 

In this slot you can make winning lines with a mere two matching symbols in the case of the ladybird, rabbit’s foot, crystal ball, Number Nine and the Lucky Lady herself (a very scenic-looking and uncharacteristically youthful New Age-style fortune teller.

The key feature here the free spins feature which you can trigger with three or more crystal ball scatters on the reels. This yields 15 free spins, though in fact the symbols just appear onto the screen individually – a nice touch for a very respectable game. 

Customer Service 

It’s loud and clear on the Sky Vegas homepage that they offer 24/7 customer service as you would expect from a global operation. There is the option to chat online with an operator, something which is the most advisable point of contact. However, there are also the customary email and telephone options, including a Freephone number for the latter.  Email: help@skyvegas.com Telephone: 08000 720882 

Deposit

Deposit using credit card, debit card, pre-paid card, UKash or e-wallet

Verdict 

We’re not surprised to find the best of Novomatic’s range at Sky Vegas, but why play here? Simple: They’re extraordinarily generous, with free cash and the best first deposit bonus we know of.
