When I first found out I was going to be reviewing a casino called Wild Jack, my mind immediately went to an animated western character named Jack that was going to be sprawled all over every webpage and throughout the marketing pieces. After I got into the headspace to deal with this (I hate animated characters in my casinos), I went to the site and was pleasantly surprised with what I saw. The design of the site is very modern and has the “VIP” allure of a casino that draws me in.

This review isn’t about their website design or name; I am going to dig into the games and let you know honestly if there is any reason you shouldn’t play at Wild Jack with your hard-earned money.

About Wild Jack Casino

Wild Jack Casino Header

Wild Jack Casino is another feather in the cap of the old Fortune Lounge group of casinos. If you think you recognize that name, it is probably because, in the mid-2000s, these guys ran some of the most lavish parties for their VIP players and affiliates around the world. Seriously, those events were legendary.

The casino, which launched originally all the way back in 1999, and its sister properties like Red Flush and Royal Vegas, are now listed as being owned and operated by Digimedia Casinos Ltd, a company based in Malta. The parent company now manages 20 brands, including casinos that were not Fortune Lounge assets, so I believe that there was a buyout or merger at some point.

The casinos are licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority; I presume this is why the company is also based there. This is an excellent jurisdiction from which to receive a license. It isn’t as restrictive as a UK licenses, but it is still very player-friendly, focused on fairness and financial security.

Who Can Play at Wild Jack Casino?

There are indeed restrictions on who can access Wild Jack for real money purposes. This is not shocking; with all the turmoil and confusion around legalities across the globe, it is safer for companies just not to take the risk of bringing players on board from particular countries. In this case, that also, unfortunately, means the U.S. (again, no surprise to this reviewer).

If you live in any of these countries, you are not allowed to play at this casino:

  • Afghanistan
  • Australia
  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • France
  • Hong Kong
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Netherlands Antilles
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • South Africa
  • Spain
  • Turkey
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

Software Suppliers

Much like the other old Fortune Lounge sites, two software companies are providing the games at Wild Jack. The first of these is the Live Dealer experts from Evolution Gaming. These games, which we will describe in more detail later in the review, are available only through the browser on your PC or mobile device. I am always happy to see these games in a casino lobby; the number of Evolution’s licensees seems to be growing exponentially.

The other software, which is used for the rest of the casino, comes from Microgaming. Since the late 1990s, this South Africa based developer has been making top-quality games for you to play. The Microgaming casino games can be played either by downloading their software onto your machine or by using your browser to access their Instant Play games. You should note that there are more games available for the download than on the browser, so if you are looking for a game from this review and can’t find it online, that is probably why.

The Good Stuff

Progressive Jackpots

Good Stuff

Every casino should have these; they are a great marketing tool. I mean, who doesn’t love the idea of winning hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars with one spin of the reels? There are over 2 Million dollars available to be won at the 16 jackpot games at Wild Jack; you can find them all in their own tab in the casino lobby.

A page dedicated to winners

I have long believed that showing off the winners on a casino site is just as important as any other marketing pieces that can be generated. There are a lot of skeptics out there who are convinced that no one wins; if you check out this page, you will see winners broken down by different category and also by how recently they occurred.

The Bad Stuff

Stop asking me about my browser

Bad Stuff

One of the first things I notice when I pull up the Wild Jack site is a drop-down banner suggest I upgrade to a better browser. Look, it’s 2019; your casino should work just as well on any browser, so stop clogging up my screen with this advertising. Also, the banner placement covers the navigation bar, which makes it even more frustrating.

We could use a few more promotions

I understand that the casino is more focused on their loyalty and VIP programs, but those are both long-term strategies for both the operator and the player; we need to see some more “urgent” offers that get players to play right away. They don’t need to be costly, but they do need to be there.

Game Selection

Live Dealer Games

Wild Jack Live Dealer

I opened the software discussion talking about my love for Evolution Gaming’s platform. I should clarify that I love all the Live Dealer platforms; if you aren’t playing these realistic games already, then I think you are making a huge mistake in the casino.

Evolution is definitely the leader in this space, and it shows. The studio, which I believe is somewhere in Eastern Europe, gives you the feeling of being in an actual casino. Also, the streaming is excellent, meaning that you won’t be waiting for the cards to be dealt (aside from the actual speed of the game, which is much closer to that which you would find in land-based gaming. Not every game is available via Live Dealer; you can currently choose from these options at Wild Jack:

  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Dream Catcher
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Casino Hold’em

Table Games

Wild Jack Table Games

I must admit that even after all the years in this industry, I am still not very good at craps. I don’t know what it is exactly; maybe I get too into the excitement at a live table to realize what I am doing with my betting. This is why I like to play craps when I am testing out a casino. The time by myself allows me to focus on strategies (we have several guides to casino games on this site, FYI). I like the look and feel of the Microgaming craps table; the other Table Games are also of the same quality. Have a look at your choices in the Table Games area of the site:

  • European Blackjack Redeal
  • European Gold Blackjack
  • Hi-Lo 13 European Blackjack
  • Keno
  • Pai Gow Poker
  • Poker Pursuit
  • Premier High Streak Blackjack
  • Red Dog
  • 3 Card Poker

Wild Jack Slots
If you are looking for great artwork, excellent pay lines, and some cool bonus games, then you will find all of that in the Slots lobby of this casino. Microgaming has been building great slots for years; in recent years they have added more licensed content so you will find names from the entertainment world that you probably recognize (Game of Thrones is one of my favorites).

Video Poker

Wild Jack Video Poker

Do you play Video Poker? If you don’t, I am here to tell you that you should. The game has the speed of a slot machine, with some decision-making, and if you find the right game and play correctly, then you could actually be in the driver’s seat when it comes to odds. There are tons of great variants; maybe you like to have wild cards, or maybe you are a traditionalist. Either way, you are covered by the Microgaming version of this great game. Here are all the game types you will find in the lobby (many of which you will see in multi-hand for even more excitement!):

  • Joker Poker (kings or better)
  • Bonus Poker Deluxe
  • Double Joker
  • Deuces Wild

Specialty Games

Wild Jack Specialty Games

It’s hard to give this category a proper name. At Wild jack, they are called “Casual Games”; I guess that is pretty close as they aren’t really gambling games. Games like Keno and Scratch Cards require literally no skill, and the odds are just as bad as trying to win Powerball. However, many folks like to entertain themselves with these games as they find Table Games too intimidating. There are 33 Casual Games available in this casino lobby; they include the following titles:

  • Monkey Keno
  • Six Shooter Looter Gold
  • Pharaoh’s Gems
  • Spingo
  • Keno
  • Hexaline
  • Four By Four
  • Triangulation
  • Germinator
  • Max Damage and the Alien Attack
  • Whack a Jackpot
  • Super Bonus Bingo
  • Pharaoh Bingo
  • Three Wheeler
  • Electro Bingo
  • Samba Bingo
  • Mayan Bingo
  • Bubble Bonanza
  • Pick ‘n Switch
  • Beer Fest
  • Crown and Anchor
  • Ballistic Bingo
  • Bunny Boiler Gold
  • Premier Trotting
  • Kashatoa
  • Bunny Boiler
  • Space Evader Gold
  • Premier Racing
  • Crypt Crusade Gold
  • Space Evader
  • Hand to Hand Combat
  • Crypt Crusade
  • Six Shooter Looter

Promotions

If you are looking for a wide range of promotions, I would start looking at another casino. At Wild Jack, you are going to find one central promotion to go along with the Welcome Bonus. There are likely some smaller promotions that you will receive via email, but let’s look at the two that are currently on their site.

Welcome Bonus

Having a Welcome Bonus that is appealing to everyone is very tough; the mentality of a slots player is very different than that of a Baccarat player. Wild Jack gets that, and with their Welcome Bonus, they try to give you a little bit of everything. Here’s how it works:

Wild Jack Welcome Promo

  • Make your 1st deposit and receive 100% bonus up to $/€250 PLUS 30 Free Spins on Jungle Jim
  • Make your 2nd deposit and receive 50% bonus up to $/€250 PLUS 20 Free Spins on Dragonz
  • Make your 3rd deposit and receive 50% bonus up to $/€500 PLUS 20 Free Spins on Pollen Party
  • Make your 4th deposit and receive 50% bonus up to $/€600 PLUS 30 Free Spins on Lost Vegas

I like this for a couple of reasons: first off, they award Free Spins to specific games. They obviously want to have you test out their different looking slot games, and this is an easy way to do it. Also, the casino spreads the full bonus over four deposits; this is far less intimidating than asking you to deposit a large amount before even playing any of the games.

Wild Wins Wheel II

This promotion, which was run a few months ago, is offered across most of the Fortune Lounge sites; it gives players the chance to win from a prize pool of $300,000. Here is all you have to do to be part of the promo:

  • Play your favorite games to earn Rewards points
  • Your Rewards points will fill up the progress bar
  • Each time you reach 100%, you’ll get a spin on the jungle wheel
  • Prizes on the wheel include Free Spins, Rewards points and a Bonus Round for even bigger prizes!
  • You can try and spin the jungle wheel as many times as possible to win your share of €300,000 in instant prizes

A simple promotion like this which is very interactive does wonders to keep players active for extended periods of time. It will be interesting to see if they promote the winners so we can so if they actually gave away the full $300,000.

Banking

Wild Jack Banking

Interestingly, when I compared the list of available payment methods at Wild Jack to that of some of their sister properties, there were definitely less at this casino. I imagine that is due to how the casino is being marketed; if they are focused on particular regions, then they only need the right providers for those places.

Don’t fear: you are going to be able to get your money to and from the site with ease by using one of the following choices:

Deposit Methods

  • ClickandBuy
  • EcoPayz
  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • Paysafecard
  • Ukash
  • Visa Debit
  • Visa Electron
  • instaDebit
  • Visa
  • Entropay
  • iDEAL
  • Sofortuberwaisung
  • Skrill

Withdrawal Methods

  • ClickandBuy
  • ECO Card
  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • Postepay
  • Visa Debit
  • Visa Electron
  • instaDebit
  • Visa
  • Entropay
  • Skrill

Comp Program

I pointed out earlier that I felt the casino was more focused on their loyalty program than special promotions; when you see the amount of detail they put into the program (and into communicating it to you – thank you!), you will understand what I mean.

The base of the loyalty program is, of course, earning points. They are accumulated at different rates depending on which real money game you are playing:

Game typeBet sizePoint allocation>
Slot games and unique games1 credit1 point
Table games (not mentioned below)5 credits1 point
Sic bo and all roulette10 credits1 point
Video poker games, craps, baccarat and all the blackjack games except Classic Blackjack20 credits1 point
Classic Blackjack and All Aces Video Poker100 credits1 point

If you want to redeem your points, you can do so at a rate of $1 for every 1,000 points. This may not seem like a lot, but it is extra cash (with no wagering requirement), so we’ll take it! Points do expire, so make sure you keep an eye on your balance and redeem as soon as you are able.

VIP Program

There are two components to the Wild Jack VIP Program. The first is an extension of the Comp Program; as you earn more and more points, you are placed into VIP tiers, each of which offers you added benefits at the casino. This chart explains all those benefits:

Level StatusSilverGoldPlatinumDiamond
Free points when you make your first deposit.2,500
Qualification and maintenance requirementsRegister a Real Money account at Platinum Play and make a depositEarn at least 10,000 Rewards points in a calendar monthEarn at least 25,000 Rewards points in a calendar monthEarn at least 75,000 Rewards points in a calendar month

Monthly loyalty bonus (ongoing loyalty bonus)10,00030,00050,000

That isn’t enough for the company; all real money players have the chance to be Fortune Lounge VIP players as well. If you make it into this group, then you have even more bonuses and comps waiting for you, as well as the potential to be invited to one of those legendary events I mentioned at the start of this review. You could be on your way to an F1 Race, on a luxury cruise or one of many other events they have run before. It’s definitely worth reaching out to them to find out where you stand and what you have to do to become one of these elite players.

Customer Service

If you have a query about something at Wild Jack, my suggestion to you is to check out their FAQ page. While it isn’t as extensive as other casinos I have reviewed, it does cover many of the basic issues players have at an online casino, and hopefully, yours will be covered here.

If you still need to contact the casino after searching the FAQ, they make it very easy for you to get a hold of them in real time. You can choose from WhatsApp, Skype, Live Chat or telephone and an agent will take care of you. If you aren’t in a rush, you can also email them with your question; expect a response within 48 hours.

Would I Play at Wild Jack Casino?

If you read my reviews, you will know that I am the kind of player that enjoys status over everything else at a casino. You can keep all the big, fancy Match Bonuses; I want expedited withdrawals, my own customer service agent and to go to all the parties! For that reason, I am happy to recommend Wild Jack Casino to anyone who wants to give it a shot. Don’t get me wrong, the casino has an excellent Welcome Bonus as well as great software partners. However, I hope that you will play and then we can meet and make memories at one of the Fortune Lounge parties. Good luck!
