Sun-themed casino with 100 games.
Players from United States not acceptedVISIT CASINO
Apollo Slots is an online casino catering to the South African market. Players and visitors are greeted by its clear clouds and sunny graphics probably to depict Apollo, the god of sun and light in Greek mythology. The site offers 100 casino games with the emphasis firmly on the slots offerings, while new players can take advantages of a range of bonuses.
Although this site is based on the sun god, the background, however, doesn’t instantly scream “Apollo” and those visiting the site might take some time to discern that this online gambling site aims to depict the Greek god. Although to be fair, the broken Greek columns are found at the bottom of the page to keep with the theme.
No games featuring a Greek theme are immediately seen from the Home Page and the fonts used on the site don’t depict Greek Mythology or Ancient Greek legend either.
Apollo Slots have chosen the number 8 for their bonus offerings. It is unclear why Number 8 is prominently used by the site to entice players since the number is considered a lucky by Oriental beliefs, and not necessarily by the Ancient Greek stories. The site is lucky for players though as there are many bonuses for newbies and a number of promotions for regular players.
Apollo Slots uses the number 9 to invite new players to sign-up and the number 8 to play more games for the existing clients.
New players are offered a matching deposit not exceeding R9,999 for their first three deposits. The minimum deposit is R50. On their first deposit, new registrants will receive a 100% match deposit for amounts not exceeding R2, 999, another 80% match deposit for amounts up to R4000 on the second deposit and 60% for amounts not more than R3000 on the third deposit.
Apollo Slots favours the number 8 when giving out incentives to players to try a new game. For example, players who try out the game “Witch Brew” and makes a deposit from anywhere to R200 to R8000 will receive an 80 per cent match deposit bonus and 80 free spins. Similarly, players who sign-up for the game “Eternal Love” will receive an 88 percent match deposit bonus and 88 free spins when they use the promo code “Love88.”
Players should watch out for the promotional offers that are only available for a month, such as the free spins offers.
One thing is highly noticeable from the Apollo Slots site: getting information can be a tedious task. Other online gambling sites have at the bottom of the page information in small type about which company owns the site or its operator, game providers and where it obtained its license.
Apollo Slots has none of those. Even worse, it does not have a tab “About Us” to provide information about the online casino.
One can say that the site is a bit unfriendly to first-time registrants given the absence of the Frequently Asked Questions. What the site has is a tab in the main menu found on the top of the page about banking options. The “Terms and Conditions” tab is found at the bottom of the page, although the section practically only talks about the conditions for claiming bonuses.
Apollo Slots, of course, as its names suggests, focuses on slots games. Almost 70 percent of its 100 games are slots. There are so far two progressive games, 14 video poker and 12 table games. It also has a small selection of specialty and table games such as craps and American and European Roulette. Video poker games, table games and specialty games lovers are better off looking at other online casinos, but slots lovers would have ample choice.
The number of games, of course, pales in comparison to other online gambling sites that offer 200 to 500 or even 1,000 casino games, so for those looking for flexibility and gaming choice, this is not a good choice.
For players on the go, Apollo Slots can be accessed through smart phones and tablets with many games available for both iOS and Android powered devices.
While players may find the choices of games too small, they would be glad to know that Apollo Slots has ensured to provide as many possible payment options. Players can make their deposits through Visa, Mastercard, Ecopayz, Skrill, Neteller and internet bank transfer.
And since players are often concerned about the security of the personal and even financial information – especially when credit cards are used – the site uses the secure socket layer or SSL technology to mitigate hacking and information theft.
Additionally, players are asked to provide their proof of identification such as valid ids or passport during their first withdrawal to ensure that only valid recipients of winnings get to claim them. Plus, winnings are processed within two working days, faster than some online casinos that take around 72 hours to complete the release of players’ cash.
Apollo Slots boasts of a 24/7 customer support. Players have the option to get support by emailing or live chat. The site promises a quick response to customers’ concerns.
However, players whose concerns pertain to payments might have to wait. The site can only entertain and immediately respond to payment related concerns from Mondays to Fridays, 9 am to 5 pm. Those concerned over the weekend about payments will have to wait until the next business day.
The site still does not offer customers the option to call for their inquiries and issues, although it promises to provide this customer service option soon.
Apollo Slots tried to capitalize on the popular Greek Mythology and one of its gods, Apollo. The site features the suns and clouds as Apollo is the god of sun and light, plus some other occasional objects depicting the theme. However, execution of the theme probably needs more careful thought. Providing information in an easy and simple manner would surely be of help to players.
Unfortunately, Apollo Slots fails in this aspect. There is little information provided on the site. A player who wants to know about the online casino’s ownership, game providers and registration would be disappointed.
Similarly, a user who has questions on the site would be frustrated given the site’s lack of Frequently Asked Questions page
Regarding games options, slot lovers would have ample choice, although the number of slots is smaller compared to other online gambling sites. Players of video pokers, table and specialty, will have few choices available to them.
While the number of games seems small compared to other sites, Apollo Slots provides many payment options much to the convenience of any South African player. Visa, Mastercard, Ecopayz, Skrill, Neteller and internet bank transfer are all made available to the site’s clients. Plus, players’ information is secured through the SSL technology. Information theft and hacking of information are unlikely to happen when one plays at this site.
Clients who need help regarding their payments, however, can only receive an immediate response if the inquiry falls during business hours from Mondays to Fridays. Clients still do not have the option to call to seek help, but Apollo Slots promises to provide this service soon.
