Ignition Casino is a professional-looking and trendy brand, holding a very striking site aesthetic. This casino is part of the Lynton Limited Casinos group, along with sister sites like Slots.lv although Ignition Casino has a lower wagering requirement on first deposits which we liked. The site bills itself as a site to get your adrenaline pumping, driving you into the thrill. A large welcome bonus supports this theme of excitement and revving into action.
This is a sleek site, with an orange, white and black theme that’s very memorable and suits the name perfectly. This strong branding is supported by an accessible layout, using a design seen on some other Lynton Limited sites. Offering slots, table games and poker, this is a very noteworthy brand.
Ignition Casino displays games on tiles, with a carousel system for scrolling left and right through categories. The system is smooth and easy to use, helped by an option to change to list view and a search function. Players can also open an information panel for each game. The games are quick to load, appearing in a relatively small space, but with an option to resize. The games sit in the middle of the usual site view, so it’s easy to hop to another section.
There’s certainly plenty of games at Ignition, with a mixture of slot types and providers. RTG provide a lot of the slots here, with Caesar’s Empire and Food Fight. Genesis Gaming provides action titles like Ares: The Battle for Troy, while Rival brings along Win Mill and Star Jewels. For something peaceful and relaxing, there’s Makitone’s Koi Garden. Some more international names would be great, but the setup does include 3 and 5 reel games, progressive jackpots and more.
Table games are well covered too, with both traditional green felt roulette, blackjack and other games, but also some very modern flash-like games with crisp, pastel interfaces. Baccarat and American Roulette stand out here, as does Let ‘Em Ride. Ignition offers video and real poker, the latter being quite integral to the site’s theme of risk and adventure. The poker is supported by regular promotions, such as monthly freerolls.
Ignition Casino is lacking any live dealer games, which does put this brand behind many competitors.
Ignition Casino does not have any apps, but players can access the site through their mobile or tablet browsers. The site does not do much to direct players to this.
The mobile site here is very strong. The view is responsive, optimised for a smaller screen, flowing pretty well when swiped and tapped. The design includes access to the slot games and also the poker, though there are a few steps to follow first. This is a good mobile site, with easy access and a good aesthetic.
Ignition has a main help section, which collects together a series of FAQs. Having them sorted by categories does make life easier for players. A search function would be ideal, but the information is still very useful.
The site also offers contacts for email and phone. Unfortunately, the site does not appear to offer live chat, which is a downside that puts this brand behind competitors (and even some of its own sister sites). The team are nevertheless quick to help and professional.
Ignition has a full security certificate, provided by GlobalSign. Payments are protected by encryption. The site offers some useful information about safe online practises, plus it has the iTech seal of approval, meaning that the random number generator is tried and tested.
The site has a responsible gaming area, with links to helpful organisations like Gamblers Anonymous.
Ignition Casino accepts payments via American Express, Visa and MasterCard. The site does not offer any e-wallets, another notable downside, but it does accept Bitcoin which will please many users. This is a great step towards wider acceptance of this useful online currency.
The actual depositing system is easy to understand. The panel can be found at the top right and it’s quick and easy to follow. Withdrawals do have fees, but players get one freebie each 120 days. Bitcoin has no fees. The time for processing is given as up to 48 hours.
