Whenever we come across a site with “Slots” in the name, we hesitate briefly while hoping that the site isn’t a slots-only operation. Thankfully, that is particularly rare and is not the case with this operation. With that out of the way, we could focus our attention on everything this brand has to offer and making a determination as to whether or not this is the right casino for our readers.
Liberty Slots launched back in 2011 and seems to have ties to the old English Harbour brand. This was one of the largest casinos in the market back in the 2000s, only to have their business decimated by the changing gaming climate in the U.S. The guts of the casino were acquired and from that came this new brand.
The homepage has a picture of the Statue of Liberty on it (no surprise gave the name), so it is safe to say that the target audience for this casino is American players. As it turns out, the only country that seems to be banned from playing real money games at this casino is Canada. We aren’t sure what the Canadians did to deserve this, but if you are a resident, then you will need to hit up one of our other reviews. It also appears that states that have their own gaming laws are on the restricted list for this casino.
Liberty Slots is licensed by the government of Curacao. This isn’t exactly making us jump up and down with joy – the country isn’t known for protecting players very well – but it is one of the few jurisdictions that is relaxed when it comes to sites that want to accept players from the U.S.
The Casino Games
Part of acquiring the assets of English Harbour include the use of the old English Harbour software, which has changed names over the years. What was once Odds On and Vegas Technologies is now WGS, and it appears to be owned by the group that runs Liberty Slots (although they also seem to license the product to other casinos)?
WGS games have been around since 2000, which means that many of the titles are recognizable to those of us who have been in the industry for almost as long. That doesn’t take away from the quality of the games, as you will see when you step into the casino lobby.
We started our review with slots, as it is in the name of the site! The slots catalog, while not huge regarding the number of titles, features a great selection of classic games and newer versions of paylines and graphics. There are many progressive games available which we like as we are always on the hunt to win a big prize (no luck to speak of to date). Overall, while you will definitely find more titles in other casino lobbies, you will still like what you find at Liberty Slots.
If you like Table Games, then you will also find an adequate number of options at this casino. There isn’t much in the way of modern variants of games, with the casino sticking to the more traditional versions of the table games you know. We actually like the Perfect Pairs version of Blackjack, as that offers a nice side bet which increases the excitement level on every hand!
The site also has video poker options, and for those of you who love the game as much as we do you will be thrilled to see all the choices. It is clear that the site has focused on the development of video poker over the years, and we spent most of our time chasing big wins at Aces and Faces. We are very pleased with the quality of the gameplay that WGS has built, and we think these may actually be the best games in the entire lobby.
The WGS games were built to be available in both download and instant-play format, meaning they can be accessed by anyone using a browser on their PC or mobile devices. We tested the games at Liberty Slots and found that while not all the titles were available in the lobby, the once that were there offered the same quality of play as we found when playing from our PC. It seems as though the company is continuing to convert their catalog to be mobile-friendly, so we expect all the titles to be in the mobile lobby shortly.
The Welcome Bonus
There are two Welcome Bonuses at Liberty Slots. If you are using a credit card, you are offered a 100% match bonus to $259 on each of your first three deposits. For e-wallet customers, the bonus is limited to one 100% match to $100. SO, while we rarely suggest this, we think you should all use your credit cards for deposits so you can maximize the bonus to its fullest.
The Payment Options
As with many casinos that accept both U.S. and non-U.S> players, there is a big difference in the payment options available to each group. While this list may seem to offer many choices, American readers should know that you are basically limited to credit cards and checks for your banking. We are hopeful that the casino will add Bitcoin as an alternative for U.S. players soon.
- Paysafe Card
- Bank Wire Transfer
- ECO Card
The VIP Program
The Rewards Club at Liberty Slots consists of six levels, all of which can be attained by earning comp points in the real money games. We have to admit that after reviewing the program, we are left wanting more as this seems to only reward players with increased deposit bonuses, and no actual perks. This section of the casino could be improved.
The Support Department
Liberty Slots offers support 24 hours a day, which is good to see. You can see a Live Chat icon on each page of the website, which brings up an agent within a couple of minutes. You also have access to a telephone number if you prefer to communicate that way (toll-free in the United States), or if you want to explain your issue in more detail, then email is your best option.
Overall, we like what we see at Liberty Slots. While the site is clearly trying to attract American players, they don’t go out of the way to alienate players from other countries. While the WGS software doesn’t have nearly the catalog of games of some of the competition, the selection you will find at this casino will satisfy your needs. The promotions are deposit-heavy, but we can live with that. This casino gets a moderate recommendation from our reviewers.
