*This is one of the brands we used to feature on the site, however for whatever reason we no longer recommend it. We kept this old review but removed any direct links to the site and advise you to pick another brand from here.
Wixstars Casino is one of the new players at the table, having opened its doors for customers only weeks ago, at the end of 2016. It operates under Brightnet and seems like its diving head-first into the harsh industry of online gambling. The landing page of the website greets users with a dark blue backdrop and a couple of intriguing game characters. The logo is right in the middle of the main menu, shaped as a round shield with a star on it. All of the most necessary links are readily available if not from that very same menu, then just above it. Such is, for example, the option of changing the language of the site. The default language is English, but you may choose from Swedish, Finnish, German and Norwegian. Links for login and opening an account are right next to the language options.
To the left on the same level you can find links to the casino’s About section, as well as a Contact link. If you scroll down, you will see the four strong points of Wixstars: top game providers, UK licensed, 24/7 support and secure payments. And speaking of game providers, this online casino does indeed boast a pretty wide selection of different developers. Players can enjoy an abundance of slots from leading manufacturers like Netent and Microgaming. In addition, the homepage will grant you a sneak peak of all the top games that this casino has to offer.
To reach the promotions section of the site, you needn’t look any farther than the main menu. The respective link in it will lead you to all the juicy special offers this online casino has in store. First up is of course the Casino Welcome Package. If you deposit as a new player, you can receive a bonus match of 100% up to £200. In addition to the bonus money, you will receive 20 freespins. What’s more, Wixstars offers you the possibility to extend its hospitality and reward you upon your next two deposits. If you deposit at least £20 on each of the following two days after your initial deposit, you will receive more freespins! To be exact, each of those subsequent deposits will grant you another 40 freespins. So all in all, you can receive a maximum of £200 in bonus money and 100 freespins. Keep in mind, however, you will have 24 hours to make use of the freespins before they expire. Furthermore, all freespins winnings, as well as the bonus amount are subject to 35x wagering requirements.
And to keep loyal players happy and coming back for more, Wixstars also has a VIP club. There are a total of 5 different levels, through which you can make your way to take advantage of the benefits they offer. The levels are Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Premium and Prestige Member. Depending on the level you are at, you can receive different amounts of freespins every Sunday. In addition, all members of the VIP club are guaranteed fast withdrawals by the least, and express withdrawals at the final two levels.
Software and Game Selection
As we already mentioned, you can have a look at the most popular games already from the homepage of Wixstars. However, to view the full selection, you will need to go to the Casino Lobby. There will be a list of featured games to greet you in the beginning. They include a number of very popular slots, such as Dragonz, Gonzo’s Quest and the all-time favorite Starburst. We also already made it quite clear that you can expect some action from some of the world’s best game providers like Microgaming, NextGen and Netent. In addition to those, you will come across lesser known names like WMS Industries and NeoGames. And what’s a really great feature that Wixstars Casino provides is the possibility to try the games out for free. If you hover over any slot game of your choice, you can choose to play for real or for fun. Selecting the latter won’t even require you to have a registration and we think that’s a perfect opportunity to get to know the games before actually betting your money on them.
Unfortunately, though, the lobby doesn’t provide too many sorting options. As you will find, you will only be able to look through the sections labeled as Featured, Video Slots, Table Games, Classics and All Games. However, you will have the possibility of searching through the game selection and finding a particular game you may be interested in. Thus, you may, for example, find games like Secrets of Christmas, Jungle Jim El Dorado, Thunderstruck II, Victorious or Guns N Roses. In addition, the right side menu features a real-time list of the latest winners on the site.
Wixstars works with a variety of different payment processors to provide players with a wide choice of payment options. Players can use their debit card to deposit, you can use a range of different VISA cards, as well as MasterCard. In addition, there are e-wallets available for instant depositing, such as Neteller and Skrill. Other options include the popular prepaid method – Paysafecard, which offers full anonymity and is always a plus on any gambling site. Virtual prepaid cards are also available in the form of Entropay. In addition, you can use SOFORT as an online bank transfer option. Withdrawal periods can take up to 48 hours to process, which of course depends on the method of your choice. In addition, there is a withdrawal limit of £7,000 per month, unless you are a VIP Platinum level player or higher. In that case the amount can be increased. Furthermore, you will not be able to withdraw bonus funds until you have completed the wagering requirements.
We were already keen on mentioning in the beginning of this review that Wixstars online casino boasts a UK license. Indeed, it is registered with and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. The casino also holds a license by the Malta Gaming Authority, which is arguably the most popular online gambling authority. That much said, players can rest assured that they are playing on a legal and secure website. What’s more, you can even verify that much for yourself. Simply head to the footer of any page on the site to find the respective gaming authority logos. Click on them and they will show the license, as well as its status.
Contact Info & Social Activity
Customer service is readily available on the site 7 days a week from 8 AM to 1 AM CET. You can use the Contact section of the website to see the full list of available contact methods. Such is, for example, email under: [email protected] The other alternative is Live Chat, which you may access through that same section. Your other option would be to click on the chat bubble at the top of the page. You can also make use of the extensive FAQ section of the website. It covers all of the main questions and queries you may have, from payment-related ones to bonus policies and information about the games. What we really found a shame, however, is that the site doesn’t have any social media pages. It is our firm belief that social media is a great way to reach out to new and existing players and a new business could always benefit from that.
Like many other brands in our online casino reviews Wixstars Casino does show great potential. It has a modern design and already provides a number of different exciting slot and table games. What’s more, the games are by some of the most renowned developers, which is also a good sign. There’s a variety of payment methods, which is another definite plus. As for customer service, it’s available nearly round the clock, which may eventually be bumped to full 24/7 support. Seeing as how new this site is, it’s certainly off to a good start and there’s hope that it will only improve.
