Spin Palace is a long-established site that caters well for slots players. The welcome bonus features a 43% match on your first three deposits making a potential sign up bonus of $1000 and slots—including progressive jackpots—contribute 100% to the wagering requirement (although, at 50x, this is higher than average). The range of Microgaming slots of all varieties is excellent, with games to suit every playing style, including the biggest progressive titles.

Welcome Bonus

The welcome offer at Spin Palace is potentially worth $1000 to new players, with your first three deposits into a new account receiving match bonuses.

  • 1st deposit—100% match up to $250 (minimum deposit $20)
  • 2nd deposit—25% match up to $300 (minimum deposit $20)
  • 3rd deposit—50% match up to $450 (minimum deposit $20)

Provided these three deposits are made within 7 days of opening your account, this Spin Palace bonus means a match of almost 43% on deposits totalling $2350, potentially increasing your initial bankroll to $3350. This is good value for the regular slots player who wants to begin with a healthy account. In addition, as part of the introductory offer, new players also receive 500x free loyalty points.

In order to claim your welcome bonus, download the free casino software and set up your new account. Once you have made an initial deposit of at least $20 on the banking page, you will be prompted to claim your bonus, and may be required to enter the Spin Palace bonus codes 2015 you receive on sign up (this needs to be done within 24 hours of creating the account).

As part of the Spin Palace bonus terms and conditions, there is a wagering requirement of 50x. This is higher than the average of online casinos that we recommend, but with online slots contributing 100%, it does improve the value. For table games, however, the contributions are far less:

  • 100%—online slots (including progressive jackpot games), parlour games—100%
  • 8%— blackjack (except classic), roulette, video poker (except All Aces and JoB), table poker
  • 0%—classic blackjack, All Aces and JoB video poker, craps, baccarat, Red Dog, Sic Bo

While the playthrough requirement at Spin Palace is higher than average at 50x, this is countered by slots contributing 1:1 and the overall deposit match of 43%, which is very good value on three deposits of this size. In addition, progressive jackpot slots contributing to the wagering requirement also increases the value of the offer, and so we recommend this as a bonus that will appeal to regular Canadian slots players. However, for casual players or those who also like to play table games, it is unlikely that they will get the full benefit.
