Slotty Vegas is one of the most established online casinos on the internet gaming scene, synonymous with quality and fairness. Can you tell us what lies behind the success of the casino?
The perpetual need to innovate is what always drove Slotty Vegas forward from the outset. The initial concept of Slotty Vegas, Supercharged Wins, is highly innovative, and such an idea had been unheard of at the time of launch. Hence, the casino hit the ground running in terms of innovating from the offset. Over the years, the website has continually adapted and improved, with new features, new looks, every improving. We strongly believe that if the product isn’t moving forward, then it’s moving backwards, so a forward momentum is crucial, and we make sure that this simple concept drives us and is behind our success so far.
VulkanBet is one of the newer brands owned by Maxent Limited. What is the focus of this casino, and what makes it different?
VulkanBet is a recent acquisition for MaxEnt. We have been in the market for a sports and esports betting product for some time, seeing as their popularity has soared over the past couple of years, so we took the opportunity to acquire this casino when it presented itself. The site has undergone a considerable makeover, and the design and user interface have both changed considerably. Now, VulkanBet looks fantastic, offers hugely competitive odds on both sports and esports, and has filled the void in what we could offer our players previously.

What’s the welcome offer at Slotty Vegas Casino?
When putting together our Welcome Package, we made sure to combine value with extended gameplay. Hence, we went with a package of no less than four deposit matches, with up to £/€350 in bonus funds up for grabs as well as 135 Free Spins on Book of Dead. The bonuses are a sequence of 100%, 100%, 50%, and a massive 200% match; each combined with the Free Spins. Couples with the fact that the bonuses are non-sticky, it’s genuinely one of the better welcome packs you’re likely to find anywhere.
Slotty Vegas is home to the Supercharged Wins bonus. Can you tell us more about the cashback program?
Supercharged Wins are a simple concept. We take top games from providers like Play’n GO, Netent, and Big Time Gaming, and we Supercharge the wins on these games at different times. When a game is Supercharged, we add extra cash on top of every win you generate when playing these games. The funds are complimentary, with no wagering requirement. It’s a reward system that works, and our players love it.

For them, we create exclusive rewards and cashback offers for major events for players to enjoy.
Do you encourage players to use mobile? Do you offer a Mobile Casino?
Any serious operator would offer mobile friendly casino these days. Our products are fully responsive, meaning it makes no difference how you access our products – you can expect excellent quality either way.
How is gamification affecting the casino industry? Do you use gamification elements in any of your sites?
Gamification is a buzzword to make its way into online gaming of late. The idea of increasing user engagement with frequent interactions and rewards is not new and has worked wonders in other industries such as computer gaming. Casino players have now also come to expect it, which drove game providers such as Netent and Pragmatic Play to integrate their form of gamification for operators to offer, and from our experience has worked very well. At Slotty Vegas, players can expect such features when playing their games along with a host of tournaments with extensive prize pools and cash drops to gamify their experience.
What industry trends are going to shape the future of online gambling?
The regulatory landscape is dramatically changing at the moment. Things have changed so quickly in the past few years that it’s a challenge to predict and project further than a year ahead. These overhauls in regulation are the main challenge the industry is facing at the moment and will be seeing for some years to come.
What is your advice on responsible gambling?
When the fun stops, stop. Gambling is a form of entertainment, and this should always be at the forefront of your actions when playing. To be extra safe, never play with money that you cannot afford to lose. With this in mind, you’ll be fine.
13. What can we expect from Slotty Vegas & VulkanBet in 2020?
Our focus now has shifted to the integration of Trustly Pay N Play functionality, already active through the launch of our new website GoSlotty casino; our new no-registration needed casino with instant withdrawals. We are also expecting to receive our Swedish license this year, which will see us expand further into Scandinavia in line with our plans for growth, so these are hugely exciting times for the company.
