If you want to try out a free to play version of a video slot, you’ll have noticed that it’s not quite as easy to do so as it has been in the past. The UK Gambling Commission has introduced new regulations aimed at blocking children and young people from accessing free to play and demo versions of video slots.
What does this now mean?
That means that you have to confirm that you are 18 years or over if you want to give a video slot a spin in demo mode or free to play mode. We take the new Gambling Commission regulations seriously here at CasinoManual.co.uk and we don’t want underage players accessing content when they’re not supposed to.
We’ve introduced a simple solution
We have tried to make the verification process as simple and as straightforward as possible. We’ve partnered with Verime to provide a seamless verification procedure which can be completed in a matter of seconds. All you’ll need is a mobile phone.
Here’s what you need to do. First fire up the video slot you’re looking to play, you have more than 1,500 to choose from here at CasinoManual.co.uk.
Instead of the opening screen of the free to play version of the video slot, you’ll see a message that reads “The UK Gambling Commission wants to protect underage gambling and CasinoManual.co.uk is committed to safeguarding children from gambling. Please verify your age in order to access the free to play version of this game.”
Below that message you’ll see a blue “Verify Age” box. Click on that. Then key in your mobile phone number. You’ll then receive a text message. Follow the instructions in that text and reply (texts are charged at your standard network rate).
You should then receive a text confirming that your identity has been verified which means you’ll be good to start playing in the demo mode versions at CasinoManual.co.uk.
Very quick to confirm you’re 18 or over
There are no lengthy forms to fill in or documents to upload. Just the mobile phone should do it. The whole process should be completed in less than a minute. You only have to complete the procedure once. You’ll then have access to all the great content we have to offer.
Enjoy over 1,500 video slots
As mentioned, there are more than 1,500 video slots to play for free at CasinoManual.co.uk – you can find games from leading providers such as Net Entertainment, Playtech, IGT, WMS, Novomatic, Microgaming and NextGen Gaming as well others like Quickspin, Play ‘N Go, Thunderkick, Yggdrasil Gaming and many more.
We recommend you take a look at Most Popular section which has favourites like NetEnt’s Dead or Alive II, Microgaming’s Immortal Romance and Playtech’s Age of the Gods. If you like films and TV shows, our Movie/TV section has titles like NetEnt’s Vikings, Microgaming’s Game of Thrones and Blueprint Gaming’s The Goonies. I personally like the Exclusive Slots area as these games can only be played at select online casinos.
