Sites like Windfall Casino
Windfall Casino sister sites 2023
We suspect that you’ll be familiar with the name and branding of Planet Rock Casino, even if you’re not a huge fan of rock music or don’t listen to the radio regularly. This long-running station is so popular that it once had a dedicated TV channel on Freeview and is a part of day-to-day life for thousands of listeners. Planet Rock Casino is the official casino of Planet Rock Radio and focuses on slots and games that have connections to well-known bands and singers.
Some of the world’s biggest rock artists have worked with providers to have official slots made, from Guns n’ Roses to Megadeth and plenty in between, and you’ll find them all here. You’ll also find them at plenty of the other Windfall Casino sister sites, but they’re not focused on there like they’re focused on at Planet Rock Radio. The casino promises that new games are added every month, with new promotions added each week. As best as we can tell, the casino keeps to its promises.
VIP Bet would like to think of itself as the classiest of the Windfall Casino sister sites. That much is clear from the site’s style of presentation, which includes tall stacks of gold coins, gold laurel wreaths surrounding the VIP Bet logo, and several other “luxury casino” trappings. It also makes an attempt to distinguish itself by using an unusual welcome promotion. Rather than offering players a matched deposit of the kind that you’ll find at most of the casinos on the Grace Media Limited platform, VIP Bet instead offers to refund all first deposit losses up to a maximum of £200, with no strings attached.
It sounds like a nice offer until you realise that you’ll only be able to claim it if you lose the entirety of your first deposit, which is never a great start to life at an online casino. Perhaps that’s why VIP Bet offers an alternative welcome promotion of fifty free spins for players who don’t want to take it up on the cashback promotion.
You wouldn’t know it from the name, but Casino Roo and VIP Bet have a lot in common. Both of these Windfall Casino sister sites are chasing the top end of the market with elegant, sophisticated designs and promotions that are clearly designed to attract players with deep wallets. The confusing thing about Casino Roo is that it’s clear from the casino’s name, its logo, and some of the text on the homepage that the site is supposed to have an Australian theme. It’s almost like someone got as far as creating the logo and writing the copy, then forgot the theme was supposed to exist.
Instead, we have old-school, traditional casino images dominating the site’s homepage, including a wealthy-looking woman playing cards. The similarities between Casino Roo and VIP Bet are so strong that even the welcome promotions are the same; new players receive the same choice of either cashback on lost first deposits or fifty free spins to get the ball rolling.
The promotional text on the homepage of Rich Ride says you can check this casino out for “glitter, glamour and gold.” It further claims to be the UK’s “most illustrious” casino site” and allows players to bet “in imperial style.” These are all bold claims for a casino which, in reality, is probably the blandest of the Windfall Casino sister sites. We’re not even sure what “betting in imperial style” means, but we can’t find any ways to bet here that aren’t also available at the other casinos on the platform. Maybe all of the Grace Media Limited casinos are imperial?
In any event, Rich Ride doesn’t have a theme, and the lack of a theme hurts it in comparison to the other Windfall Casino sister sites because it’s so similar to some of them in other respects. That includes its layout, the games that appear on its homepage, and the categories that the games are separated into. The (up to) £500 welcome promotion is as strong as you’ll find on this network, though.
If you’re old enough to remember a time when slots were played in cabinets more often than they were played on the internet – or even a time when they couldn’t be played on the internet at all – you’ll automatically know the meaning of “fruity wins.” “Fruities” are what we used to call slot machines, and that’s the theme of this casino. It takes a more old-school approach than the rest of the Windfall Casino sister sites, with classic fruit symbols and images of slot machines in the background of the homepage and a (mostly) classic selection of slots on the homepage.
Fruity Wins isn’t the most imaginative of casinos – in fact, it looks a little plain – but it has the same welcome promotion as Rich Ride, so there’s potential here for new players who have deep enough pockets to extract the full £500 in bonus funds that it offers. Our biggest concern about the site is that it claims to offer a totally different welcome promotion further down the same page.
Jackpot Mobile Casino is a bit of a hangover from a lost era of iGaming. We take it for granted today that casino websites will load as fast and easily on our mobile devices as they do on our phones. That wasn’t always the case in the past, as mobile technology wasn’t up to the job. That means sites like Jackpot Mobile Casino had to be created. They were “slimmed down” casino sites featuring fewer images and more basic casino games.
We no longer have to deal with such restrictions, but a few of those old casinos are still with us, and Jackpot Mobile Casino is one of them. It no longer looks like it did when it was a “mobile-focused” casino, though; visually, it’s a match for most of the other Windfall Casino sister sites. The total number of games at the casino is given as seven hundred, though, and we think that’s lower than the other sites we’ve looked at in this list.

Windfall Casino operator – Grace Media (Gibraltar) Limited
It feels wrong to call Grace Media Limited inexperienced, but it’s technically true. The first incarnation of this company was formed in Manchester in 2019, and that’s very recent history as far as iGaming goes. To say there’s a lack of experience is a little misleading, though; the people in charge of Grace Media Limited have more than four decades of shared casino industry experience between them. The eagle-eyed among you will have noted that we said “first incarnation” of the company. That’s because three years after setting up shop, Grace Media Limited realised that basing a casino operator in Gibraltar is cheaper than basing a casino operator in the United Kingdom. The company’s Manchester office is still open, but the HQ of Grace Media is now on “the Rock.” As part of the move, the operator rebranded itself to “Grace Media (Gibraltar) Limited” – a change which required it to obtain a new UK Gambling Commission licence.
It isn’t unheard of for Grace Media Limited to build casino sites from scratch, but it’s not something it does often. Most of the Windfall Casino sister sites on the Grace Media Limited network have come from other places – usually from other casino operators that have either closed down or ceased operations in the UK. The bulk of the casinos are from either ElectraWorks or Nektan, but there are exceptions. The differing backgrounds of the sites explain, in part, why some of the Grace Media casinos are vastly different from others. There were well over one hundred casinos on the platform at one stage, but we’ve seen the company trim the fat in the past twelve months with the closure of an astonishing eighty iGaming sites. It seems that Grace Media has decided to dispense with casinos that weren’t making money and spend more time focusing on those that do. The current network contains about forty active sites. In theory, Grace Media is owned by ActiveWin, but the reality is that the digital marketing company is based at the same Manchester address as Grace Media and has the same directors.

Windfall Casino Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
When you join Windfall Casino, you have a choice of two welcome promotions. You could receive ten per cent of your net losses on slots back on your first deposit (subject to a maximum of £200), or you could accept an offer of up to fifty free spins. If you take the spins option, it’s twenty spins for deposits above £10, thirty for deposits above £30, forty for deposits above £40, and fifty for deposits above £50. You can get fifty free spins for deposits of £10 at other online casinos, so it’s not a generous promotion whichever way you look at it. Wagering requirements on winnings from free spins are x30, which is reasonable.
The Windfall Casino sister sites don’t tend to have the most compelling selection of ongoing or long-term promotions, and Windfall Casino itself doesn’t buck the trend. Promotions come and go quite quickly, but always tend to be a specific number of free spins for a specific deposit. At the time we visited Windfall Casino to write this review, for example, players could claim ninety free spins on selected slots in return for three £10 deposits. That’s actually better than the welcome promotion, but the offer is time-limited.
Top Games at Windfall Casino
The top slots at Windfall Casino change as often as the promotions do because the casino gives priority to new releases and features them more prominently on its homepage than the old favourites. As such, the top slots game at the time of our visit to the site was John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin by Pragmatic Play. By the time you visit Windfall Casino, that will probably have changed. Egyptian-themed slots appear to be a speciality of this site, though; Mask of Amun by Fortune Factory Studios and Eye of Horus Megaways by Blueprint are also listed on its homepage. Speaking broadly, you should expect to find all your favourite slots here. There’s no live casino, though.
Customer Support and Licensing
You can speak to customer support at Windfall Casino on a 24/7 basis by using the live chat facility, which can be found on the support page. If you’re having difficulty accessing it, you can also text the casino on 07360266617 and have a conversation with support that way. Like all Grace Media Limited casinos, Windfall Casino is listed on the operator’s UK Gambling Commission licence (57869). As of the time of writing, the operator has never been fined or otherwise sanctioned by the UKGC.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
The list of viable withdrawal methods at Windfall Casino isn’t long. Your options are Visa or Mastercard debit cards (as you might expect), PayPal or MuchBetter e-wallets, or Trustly. There’s no benefit to choosing e-wallets or Trustly over debit cards, though, as you’re looking at a wait of between two and five business days no matter which option you choose. That isn’t fast enough to be competitive these days.
Final Thoughts on Windfall Casino
Windfall Casino is fine for what it is, but it feels uninspired. It lacks a theme, and the background image of Las Vegas on the homepage doesn’t make up for it. Its welcome promotion could be better, too. Still, there are small-but-regular free spins perks and plenty of new games to try. It’s not the best casino on the Grace Media Limited platform, but nor is it the worst.
