Sapphire Rooms Review
Sapphire Rooms is member of the growing and very popular Nektan powered set of online casino sites. There’s nothing elaborate or flashy about this title. It is plain, unshowy design which gives it a no nonsense “let’s get on with the game” kind of atmosphere. You can play it on any kind of internet connected device, but it is clearly designed with the mobile or tablet in mind. Its uncluttered look, together with a total absence of flashiness of any kind makes it ideal for the smaller screen. You don’t need to download any special gizmos or software either. No matter whether you use Apple, Android, Windows or even a good old Blackberry, you can just load this site on your pre-installed web browser and start playing straight away.
You won’t be short of choice for games, that’s for sure. All the usual big titles from Net Ent and next gen are here, with popular favourites like Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest and Rainbow Riches all provided, along with over a hundred other great titles. There are some traditional casino games and scratch cards to play on this site too. All are available to play for free in Demo mode, so you can see what each game is like before you decide which to play on for real.
Joining up is easy. Just provide your personal details on the simple form provided when you tap on “Register” at the top of your screen. Once logged in, I found the lobby very easy to use. Every game is displayed on the one page, so it was easy to find and select my favourite titles. It’s all very functional, with no distracting banners and flashing lights. Not only do I like this plain and simple approach, it also makes it easier to follow what is going on on the more compact screen. Once inside, payments can be made in a variety of ways. The easiest for mobile players is simply to use your phone. Payments by boku mean that all you have to do is supply your mobile number, and your deposits can be charged to your service provider’s monthly bill. Pay As You Go customers can charge their payments to their available call credit. There is a maximum daily deposit amount of £30 when using boku. Other potential payment methods include the traditional Visa or MasterCard credit or debit cards. There are also e-payment and pre-payment methods, including Neteller and Paysafecard. There is a minimum deposit amount of £10 for all payment methods.
There are lots of interesting promotions on the site, focused on attracting new customers, and on encouraging play at some of the quieter times of the week. All carry wagering requirements which should be fulfilled before you withdraw your winnings. These mean that you will need to spend at least 30 x your deposit + bonus before making a claim, or you will lose any remaining bonus funds. This means that if, for example, you were to deposit £10 and receive a bonus of £20, you would need to wager £900 (30 x £30) before cashing out. There is a minimum withdrawal amount of £20, a daily limit of £2,000 and a monthly limit of £5,000. You also cannot have your winnings credited to your mobile account if you deposited via Boku.
Players looking for a vast array of games on a glitzy and flashily designed site may be disappointed, but I really liked Sapphire Rooms’ no nonsense functional approach. It’s easy to just get on with your spins on the quality games provided by this understated but effective site.
