FortuneJack Casino Review
* Update February 28, 2019: FortuneJack has now taken our #1 crypto casino ranking for desktop and laptop computer users. They are currently not an option for mobile users, as their mobile games are not yet available. FJ representatives have told us that their mobile games will be available “within a month.” We will update this page again after their mobile games are available, and after we’ve given them a thorough test.
They’ve taken the #1 spot from mBit Casino because their sportsbook is now live, and their much larger selection of slot games. FJ and mBit have been neck & neck for quite some time, but now we have to give FJ the edge. With that said, mBit Casino is still our #1 recommendation for mobile players. Their mobile games selection is great, along with the fact that they can be played in-browser from both Apple and Android devices. So, if you want to play on your computer, we recommend FJ. If you want to play on mobile or a combination of mobile and computer, we recommend mBit. You can read our mBit Casino review here.
End of update and back to our review:
Established in 2014 by the Nexus Group, FortuneJack accepts eight digital currencies, Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Dash (DASH), Ethereum (ETH), Zcash (ZEC) and Monero (XMR). The casino is licensed in Curacao and welcomes players worldwide, including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.
With a nice lineup of provably fair games and easy deposits, FortuneJack Casino makes for an easy recommendation to any cryptocurrency player. Here’s our summary of the pluses and minuses:
Crypto Currency & Fiat Deposit & Withdrawal Options
FortuneJack has partnered up with an innovative bitcoin wallet called BitGo, which presumably makes deposits instant, or at least quicker than the standard bitcoin deposit. As mentioned above, they accept bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), Dash (DASH), DogeCoin (DOGE), and Zcash (ZEC). They do not accept any fiat currencies. Whether it is quicker than Bitcoin Cash is hard to tell, but it is at least another option to the standard bitcoin deposits, which have taken longer as the blockchain has grown. Using BitGo, transactions are free for deposits of under 1 BTC, and 0.1% for more. You have to create an account with BitGo, a simple enough process that uses email verification.
You can register with FortuneJack to deposit. The registration requires an email and password. After that, you can go to the My Account tab where there will be a list of the virtual currency addresses. Choose yours and use the standard copy-paste into your personal wallet. When you fill in the amount, and hit “send,” your transaction will be on its way to confirmation. It should take around 10 minutes before your FortuneJack Casino account is funded and you are ready to play for real money.
There was no minimum deposit listed, and the casino will generally charge no fee for smaller deposits, but you should check with your personal wallet to see if there is a standard charge or percentage fee.
The withdrawal process is the reverse of depositing; you go to a Withdrawals page and fill in your personal wallet address. The withdrawal should be as fast as the deposit, and again, the casino charges no fee.
We could find no minimum or maximum deposit or withdrawal limits listed, probably because of value swings.
Keep in mind that whether or not you take advantage of a bonus, you have to wager 2 times the amount of your deposit to be able to withdraw any money.
Fortune Jack Casino Bonuses, Promotions, and Free Spins
The bonus system at FortuneJack is generally fair, but heavily dependent on the type of game you play.
Again, coin values can change drastically, but the most recent time we played there FortuneJack was offering a 110% matching deposit bonus for up to 1.5 BTC or its equivalent, plus 250 free spins. There are separate playthrough requirements for the deposit amount and the free spins. You should read these carefully before depositing.
The rollover or playthrough requirement for the deposit amount is 40 times the amount of the bonus. They listed .002 BTC as the minimum deposit amount at the time, so if you deposited that amount, you would receive a .0022 BTC bonus. You would then have to wager .088 (40 x .0022 = .088) to be able to withdraw any of the bonus money. A lot of math, we know. But this is as fair a bonus setup as you can find.
There are also second and third deposit bonuses with similar rules, as well as a special dice bonus program.
The thing to keep in mind with these bonuses is the games you play. The Bonus Terms section states that slots wagers generally count 100% toward meeting bonus requirements, but they have a long list of games that don’t contribute at all. Not only are there slots games on the list, but also live games and video poker games. So, if you have a favorite game, you should check out this list before you shoot for a bonus. For other games, they have a graded RTP (return to player) percentage system that determines how much your wager contributes toward the bonus requirement.
It all seems confusing and maybe not even worth the effort. But if you want to check out the bonus stipulations, go to the Promotions section and each bonus program will have a “Read More” to click for details. Read the Bonus Terms and Conditions link.
FortuneJack also has a unique weekly prize contest that might attract high rollers. It’s called Jack’s Race, where players accumulate points toward a ranking for a nice 2 BTC pot.
Game Selection and Casino Software
Fortune Jack Casino’s game selection is vast, way more than enough for most players. Slots heavy, they have more than 500 slots games. Also, FortuneJack.com carries nearly 50 versions of blackjack, more than 30 roulette games, including the French version and progressives; and a dozen live games that include blackjack, roulette, baccarat, sicbo and casino hold’em.
The games come from 10 software makers, including the popular Microgaming, Betsoft and Isoftbet brands.
The games are arranged in a main menu of Dice, Slots and Games, which include keno, video poker and others. Then there is a submenu of these categories: Featured, Slots, Jackpot, Live Dealers, Roulette, Poker, Blackjack and Provably Fair.
Such a large selection makes it challenging to find a favorite game. They make it easier for slots players by categorizing games by software maker. If you play other games, you have to scrounge around to find a favorite. For instance, we found video poker games under the Betsoft slots.
The slots games range from standard 3-wheel fruits and 7s, up to more complex multi-payline 5 wheelers, and the jackpot titles such as Mega Moolah, King Cashalot and The Slotfather. There are plenty of themes, so if you hunt around, you’ll find something up your alley.
One thing to watch out for: because of casino and software licensing, you may run into games that you won’t be able to play because of where you live, so if you have a favorite game, make sure it plays for you going in.
Provably Fair Games
FortuneJack is serious about its provably fair gaming. At the bottom of the main page, there is a Provably Fair section in which you will find details on how the fairness of various games is verified. Plus, we know that software makers such as Betsoft and Microgaming have routine checks of games for fairness.
Even if you don’t want to go through the process of proving your deal fair, you can be assured you are getting a fair deal at FortuneJack.
If you have questions or inquiries, FortuneJack Casino has a Contact Us section that has a 24/7 email prompt. There is also a Live Support tab at the bottom of your page that allows you to chat with a representative. The first time we tried this, the response was slow – we gave up waiting after about five minutes. We went back later, and the response was instant and informative, so expect mixed results.
We had fun with the games in our visit to FortuneJack Casino – the selection carried us away. And we really like their commitment to provably fair games.
The bonus situation is a bit hard to follow, especially in terms of the games that contribute toward qualifying.
But it is evident these people know what they’re doing, and we found player response in forums to be heavily positive.
This destination easily hits the mark enough for us to give it a hearty recommendation.
