It’s easy to get a little bit jaded in bingo world. Here at Busy Bee, we’re used to networks promising something new when really it’s the same old offer with a different name. But now and again, something comes along that truly IS different. And the Wheel of Slots is it. Powered by Jumpman Gaming, this is a newly launched network. It starts with just four members: Lucky Cow, ikingiking, Wallis and Bingo Fling, with more site launches promised throughout 2015.
What makes Wheel of Slots Network unique? Well, let’s start with the bold statement “Say goodbye to boring bonus cash” – a pretty bold move when just about every other site in online bingo land promises just that. Instead, each site offers the chance to “spin the wheel”. Now it is true that Jumpman Gaming’s sisters at 15 Network also feature a spinning wheel, but this one is different. Instead of bonus cash, this wheel of fortune enables you to win up to 500 free spins on one of three featured instant slot games, or free tickets for the “Daily Fifty” jackpot bingo game. At the time of writing, featured games include Fluffy Favourites, Shaman’s Dream and Temple of Isis – all very popular games. As you can see, this network is more focused on slots and other instant games than most others, where slots are an add-on, often referred to as “alternative games”. Nevertheless, the bingo is all present and correct, with 90 and 75 ball varieties offered. And instead of just getting the juicy introductory bonuses that other networks offer, with WSN you get to spin the wheel with every deposit you make (subject to a minimum of £10).
All these sites are licenced and registered via the channel island of Alderney, which is overseen by the UK Gambling Commission. So you can be sure that all the usual legalities are covered. All the typical credit and debit cards like Visa and MasterCard are accepted, so making payments shouldn’t be a problem. The wagering requirements on this network are different too. You need to wager 40 x your winnings from any free spins before making a withdrawal. This means that if you win £20 from your free spins, you will need to spend £800 in real cash before making your first claim. This sounds a lot (and it is!) There are two points to bear in mind though: firstly, these requirements are not uncommon for instant games on other bingo sites. It is not unusual to find requirements of as much as 99 x for slots and casino style games. Secondly, all spending on Wheel of Slots sites counts 100% toward the wagering requirement. Again, on most other networks, only a lower proportion of slot and other instant game spending contributes to the total.
So, the Wheel of Slots Network truly is a bit different. The focus is most definitely more toward the instant game side, but the bingo is mighty fine too. The new wheel is a welcome innovation, and it is certainly a refreshing change from the usual bonus cash promotions featured on almost all its rivals. All the sites are desktop, laptop, tablet & mobile compatible, so you can play them whenever and wherever you like. For once, the promise is delivered!
