Online gambling is practically my job, and trying new online casinos is an important part of it. Not only it gives me more safety (as I don’t like to keep all the eggs in one basket) and diversity, but also allows me to write casino reviews for you. Today, please welcome Mason Slots — a casino that is popular both in South Africa and the rest of the world. Is it worth the hype? How do you make a quick deposit? Are there any restrictions? Let’s find out.
Before we start with the detailed review, let me quickly describe my general impression of Mason Slots casino and the lucky gambling day I spent there.
After such a good result, I could simply quit the casino and end this review here, but that’s not how I do the job, you know. So now let’s stop with the compliments and take a closer look at every quality aspect of Mason Slots casino. Quick spoiler: it’s not as perfect as it seems.
I’ve created my own casino evaluation procedure that consists of 6 steps. Thus, I can see the whole picture, and don’t just get lured by games and bonuses.
The reliability of online casinos and their attitude towards the safety of players is the No.1 thing for me, so it’s no wonder I put it in the first place of this list. I have no doubts about the safety of Mason Slots as it’s licensed by Malta Gaming Authority — one of the most reliable licensing institutions which I trust a lot.
Another thing that I liked at this point is that the casino clearly states how exactly it protects the players’ personal and financial information. It might look like an unnecessary factor, but everything changes once your data gets leaked out due to cyber-attack or someone’s inobservance.
Even though I mostly use Neteller for my gambling deposits and withdrawals, I like it when casinos offer more, just in case I need to use something else. I was quite satisfied with the choice of depositing methods provided by Mason Slots, although it’s not the widest one I’ve seen in online casinos. I didn’t have any issues with my first deposit and got the money quickly and smoothly into my casino account.
As for the choice of withdrawal methods in Mason Slots, it is not that big. Here is what you can opt for in addition to Neteller:
Now it’s time to dig into withdrawals, and here is the thing I want to tell all the players, both beginners and experienced ones: always read the casino’s Terms & Conditions before you make a deposit and start making bets. Otherwise, you might end up with the money you can’t withdraw. I know how it works, so I read all the details, and this is what I found.
This T&C point means you won’t be able to get your winnings back unless you wager the deposit money for at least 3 times, even if you haven’t claimed any bonuses. I must say that these terms are kind of tricky, and that’s what I didn’t like in this casino. Nevertheless, I was okay with meeting the requirements to get my money withdrawn.
Once I decided that it’s time, the casino initiated a KYC (verification) procedure, which is a regular thing, and I don’t mind it, as long as it’s fast and reasonable. The good thing was that I didn’t need to send my documents via email, but download them directly to my casino account. The list of documents included:
I took around 12 hours for the documents to be approved, and soon after, I got the money into my Neteller account.
Mason Slots is pretty generous when it comes to bonuses, just look at this impressive list:
But I’m an experienced gambler, and it’s hard to blind me with all those banners and promises. When I see a casino’s promotions page, the first thing I do is to check the Terms & Conditions. And what I saw here is that the Mason Slots welcome bonus of 100% deposit match + 50 free spins is available with 40x wager requirements, which I believe to be not lucrative enough to claim it. You might think differently and make use of the bonus, but I proceeded to make bets with no “free” money on my account.
Considering the name of the casino, you might think that its only focus is slot machines. But even though there are quite a lot of slots in the game list, players who prefer the table or live-dealer games will also have something to play.
There is a convenient filter that will let you sort the games by a provider if you are looking for something specific. Alternatively, you can check the newest games, or the most popular ones, if you are feeling lucky but don’t know what exactly to play at the moment. All in all, I was completely satisfied with the Mason Slots game collection and gave it 5 stars without thinking long.
I’m not going to keep you at this point for too long, as there is nothing specific to say about the Mason Slots mobile compatibility besides that it’s totally okay. I did my whole gambling session in Mason using my iPhone, and there were no crashes, no freezes, and all the features and filters were available. I did a quick check on my laptop later and saw no difference at all.
I always test the casino’s customer support, even when there are no issues or questions I’d like to ask. In Mason Slots, customer support is available via 24/7 live chat, which I liked. What I didn’t like is that it’s rather slow. Not the “I had to wait two hours for the reply” kind of slow, but “I had enough time to make myself a cup of tea” kind of slow. Nevertheless, I got my question answered in full. The CS member was nice and friendly, so nothing bad to say here.
I’ve already told you about my 6 criteria, but there are a few more points about Mason Slots you might be interested in.
Mason Slots offers a lucrative loyalty program, one of the best I’ve seen in online casinos recently. There are 20 ranks, each with better deals and prizes, from free spins and cashbacks to Apple Watch and iPhone 11. The more you play — the higher you climb, and the better gifts you get from the casino.
Mason Slots pays a lot of attention to the players’ safety, which is a good thing. While most online casinos offer some kind of a self-exclusion program, Mason Slots allow users to set personal limits, before things get too intense. A player can enable a deposit limit, a loss limit, a “reality check” limit, etc. All these features are accessible via a personal account, so there is no need to send emails and wait for replies.
Mason Slots is a good casino, it’s a fact. It’s properly licensed, provides a wide choice of games, and treats players with all kinds of promotions, bonuses, and special features. But it’s not perfect, it’s a fact as well. Its Terms & Conditions are kind of tricky even for a seasoned gambler like me, and its welcome bonus is far from being too favourable.
My conclusion and advice to fellow players are the following: go for it, but be attentive. Carefully read all the terms and conditions, and don’t be shy to address the customer support if you have any doubts or questions — luckily, it’s responsive.
