It’s your chance to shine and take centre stage at The X-Factor Games Casino. A very decent site indeed … but unfortunately, not everything is as tickety-boo as it should be!
Our Review of The X-Factor Games Casino
If you’re based in the UK, then no doubt you have heard of and probably watched The X-Factor. TV talent shows have been popular in the UK (and most of the rest of the world) since the 1950s, and the X-Factor is simply the latest incarnation of one. The show has been around since 2004 and has made superstars of a handful of people, including Leona Lewis and Little Mix. It has also – some would say unfortunately – name Simon Cowell a household name.
The X-Factor Games casino site has not been around quite as long – since the summer of 2016. Despite the name, the site has little in connection with the TV show. The only connection we can find is the inclusion of one or two X-Factor themed games.
There’s a great deal to see here, as our X-Factor Games casino site review will reveal.
As we’ve already mentioned, the X-Factor Games site has been around since 2016. The site has been built by Gaming Realms, which is part of Bear Group Ltd. Gaming Realms is a UK-based company famous in the online gambling realm for the creation and promotion of Slingo, the unique casino game created by the merging of slots and bingo.
Style and Feel of the Site
There’s nothing particularly outstanding about the X-Factor Games online casino site, but there’s zero wrong with it as well. It’s all very simple – menus across the top and icons down below. It’s not a site design that’s likely to win many awards, but then it doesn’t really need to.
One moan we might put forward is the lack of any search facility. You can filter the games by ‘type’ (i.e. slots, instant win games, casino games, live casino games) but then it’s just a case of working through the thumbnails until you find a game that you genuinely like the look of.
The site does make a fuss of its slingo games, which, as it was put together by the creators of Slingo – Gaming Realms – is not too surprising. There are thirteen varieties of Slingo, including, unsurprisingly, The X-Factor Slingo! There’s also Love Island Slingo and Britain’s Got Talent Slingo, plus many other games that have been created by Gaming Realms.
There are only two kinds of VIP here – ordinary VIPs and Platinum VIPs. To become a VIP you just need to play enough games and wager enough times. Platinum VIPs have to wait until an invitation pops into their X-Factor Games inbox. Benefits at both levels of VIP include bonus cash back, REAL money cash back (Platinum VIPs only) and VIP-only promos and gifts.
Mobile & Tablet Review of The X-Factor Games Casino
We were slightly critical in our appraisal of the X-Factor Games desktop site as the site seems a little mundane, but we have to confess that the design of the site does work very well on mobile, and really does the business on tablets. The menus are as simple as you need them to be, and on mobile, the full functionality of the site is always totally available.
No need to download any kind of app here. Just fire up your preferred browser on your device and navigate your way to the site. That really is all you need to do.
Games & Software available at The X-Factor Games Casino
We’ve already mentioned that a lot of versions of slingo are available at this site, but that’s certainly not all that you can play. The X-Factor Games online casino has dozens and dozens of titles from all the leading software providers, including NetEnt and IGT.
This means that top slots such as Thunderstruck, Da Vinci Diamonds and Funky Spin are all available to play. The casino side of things has nine versions of blackjack, six versions of roulette plus casino hold’em and video poker.
The live casino has baccarat, blackjack, roulette and casino poker.
Software providers: NetEnt, Microgaming, IGT.
Payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, PayByMobile.
Deposits & Withdrawals at The X-Factor Games Casino
It’s a quirk of all Gaming Realms casino websites that their sites accept zero eWallets, and The X-Factor Games site is no exception to that rule. You can only use your Visa or MasterCard here, or you can pay by mobile. The minimum accepted deposit is £10, and all deposits are processed instantly. The maximum you can deposit via PayByMobile is £30.
Withdrawals are not as fast to process as deposits, as is (sadly) the norm at most online casinos. Expect there to be a delay of three to five days before your money appears in your credit or debit card account. At least there are no fees.
Help & Support at The X-Factor Games Casino
Another ‘cross’ in the naughty box! The X-Factor Games casino site does not have any FAQs! There is help available via phone, email and live chat, but there really should be no need to have to go via help channels to get even the simplest query answered! ALL casino sites should have FAQ pages, in our honest opinion!
