Welcome Bonus Breakdown – The Welcome Bonus at Spin Palace gives new players matches on their first three deposits up to $1000:
- 1st deposit – 100% deposit match bonus, up to $250 (minimum deposit $20) + 500 free Club Points
- 2nd deposit – 25% deposit match, up to $300 (minimum deposit $20)
- 3rd deposit – 50% deposit match, up to $450 (minimum deposit $20)
You can claim the full bonus amount of $1000 if you make three deposits totalling $2350 within seven days of opening your account. This will grow your bankroll to $3350, which is an increase of just under 43% over the three deposits.
Wagering requirements – The wagering requirement that comes with the signup bonus is 50x, which is higher than many of the sites we recommend here, although both regular slots and progressive jackpot games contribute to clearing the bonus 1:1:
- 100% – all online slots (including progressive jackpot games), parlour games
- 8% – table poker games, video poker (except All Aces and JoB), roulette, blackjack (except classic)
- 0% – All Aces and JoB video poker, Sic Bo, Red Dog, classic blackjack, baccarat, craps,
Bonus Bottom Line – While not all players will be able to claim the full bonus amount of $1000, all will benefit from a match rate of around 43% on their first three deposits, which is still good value. And even though the playthrough is higher than average at 50x, this is countered by the fact that both progressive jackpot and regular slots contribute 100%, a feature that is found at only a few of the sites we recommend. For table games players, however, the contribution that these make to clearing the bonus is lower than at many other comparable sites, and so this is likely to reduce the appeal of this signup offer.

Players using any of the major operating systems – iOS, Android or Blackberry – can access the Spin Palace mobile casino, with each of these offering its own selection of games. Accounts are automatically synced so that the same username and password can be used on any device, and the same Welcome Bonus offer and payment methods are available in the mobile casino as at the main site.
iOS – If you use an iPad or an iPhone, you can choose to play either directly in the browser of your device by going to i.spinpalace.com, or alternatively you can download a free app from iTunes. There are currently around 12 mobile slots to choose from in the browser version (there are a few more on offer when you play in the app), and this includes a mix of new release games, popular Microgaming titles and several progressive jackpot games, including Mega Moolah and Major Millions. You can also play blackjack, video poker and bingo.
Android – For Android users, there are three apps that can be downloaded for free from Google Play or by going to android.spinpalace.com in the browser of your smartphone or tablet. The apps are Tomb Raider, Blackjack, and Mermaids Millions, although there are more games available on each than just these. They include a range of mobile slots (including progressive jackpots), as well as roulette, video poker, bingo and keno.
Blackberry – To access the mobile casino on a Blackberry device, go to www.spinpalace.com in your browser to enjoy a selection of popular Microgaming mobile slots, like Avalon, Thunderstruck and Mermaid’s Millions, along with progressive jackpot slots, roulette, baccarat and 3 card poker, as well as video poker and scratch card games.
Mobile casino site – Even if you don’t have a hand-held device that uses any of these operating systems, you can still access the Spin Palace mobile casino by going to www.spinpalace.com in the browser of any WAP-enabled device. This site features six mobile slots and three progressive jackpot games, which are automatically downloaded simply by tapping the relevant icon.
When you’re a regular player at Spin Palace, you collect Loyalty Points every time you play (in addition to the 500 you pick up as part of the Welcome Bonus). For every $10 you wager, you collect 1 Loyalty Point, and these can later be exchanged for casino credits – 1000 points gives you a cash reward of $10. You can earn points faster by progressing through the six levels of membership – Blue, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond and Privé – and as you go higher you also benefit from other rewards, such as faster withdrawal times, customised bonus offers, and access to exclusive competitions.
Payment methods – Accounts at Spin Palace can be operated in CAD$ and there are a number of payment methods available to Canadian players; of these, e-check and Instadebit are likely to be the most popular and accessible. iDebit can also be used (if you have an account at one of the eight Instant Payment supported Canadian banks), as can Instant Banking by Citadel.
More methods – In addition, EcoPayz, Skrill and Neteller e-wallets are accepted, along with EntroPay virtual Visa cards and PaySafe pre-paid cards. You can also use Visa and MasterCard credit cards and direct bank transfer. There are no fees attached to any of these deposit methods and deposits using most methods are credited to your casino account instantly.
Withdrawals – With the exception of Instant Banking by Citadel, PaySafe Card and (in some cases) MasterCard, the above methods can also be used to make withdrawals. After you make a withdrawal request, there is a pending period of 48 hours before processing begins. Most e-wallets will enable you to have access to your funds as soon as they are processed by the casino, but with some financial institutions and credit card providers there will be additional processing time on top.
Spin Palace has long been a site dedicated to slots players, and is popular for its extensive selection of the best Microgaming slots, combined with a RTP in excess of 96%. The games are always the feature here, so the site may not be as visually impressive as some of the newer casinos on the market, but this does not detract from the overall quality of the experience. The signup bonus is accessible by most players and, while the playthrough is higher than average, a positive element is that progressive jackpot slots contribute 1:1 to clearing the bonus.
