Having only been launched in October 2018, RockstarReels is a still very young casino site, albeit one that appears to have the right people behind it. The site is operated by ProgressPlay Limited, which is responsible for various other gambling sites around the world. So, is RockstarReels a rock legend worthy of the Rolling Stones or the Beatles, or is it just a poor Prince copy?
The wealth of promos on offer at RockstarReels is undoubtedly one of its best aspects. While we can’t be too specific here – not least because promotions on sites like these can change a lot over time anyway – you can generally expect to find the likes of the following:
A juicy first-deposit welcome bonus
Promos geared around specific gaming categories, such as roulette
Seasonal and surprise promotions
Promos on specific days of the week
RockstarReels seems to have it all as far as the choice of casino games is concerned, with slots, jackpots, table and card games available in great numbers, encompassing both obvious and lesser-spotted options. The below is just a sample...
Jumanji Video Slot
3D European Roulette
Fluffy Favourites Jackpot
There are already hundreds of games available on the site in total, which is quite impressive given its youth.
Equally important, however, is being able to access and enjoy those games to the full regardless of the device that you are accessing them on. RockstarReels has an optimised mobile site that enables smartphone users to revel in specially modified versions of such games as Diamond Strike Roulette and Starburst on a smaller screen.
There is not, however, yet a mobile app that one can download for the site, whether on iOS or Android.
You can enjoy pretty much every type of online gambling at RockstarReels, except anything to do with sports betting. Several bingo games are available, for instance, in the form of Pharaoh Bingo and Super Bonus Bingo, while Double Bonus Poker is another delight.
In fact, there’s an entire ‘casual games’ category on the site for games that don’t fit neatly into any of the other categories. It’s where you’ll find such titles as:
Monster Wins Scratch
Boss The Lotto
Another thing that thoroughly impresses us about RockstarReels is the extremely wide range of renowned games developers that it has called upon. This helps to ensure true variety in its offerings, as well as consistently high standards of graphics and audio.
The following are just some of the represented software providers:
It isn’t just the games that look and feel good, though – the whole site strikes a good balance between functionality and graphical flair, with the navigational elements being especially easy to get to grips with.
RockstarReels offers an especially formidable range of both games and accepted deposit methods, even by the standards of the best-known and longest-established casino sites around today.
The ‘rock star’ theme is another potential attraction, although this is slightly tenuously expressed on the site itself, save for the presence of some suitably rock-star-themed games such as the Jimi Hendrix and Guns N’ Roses-branded slots.
Every member of RockstarReels is automatically part of the site’s VIP Club – it’s simply a case of what level you are at as a member, which is dictated by how much you’ve spent and played on the site over the last three months.
Every £16 you wager on the site gives you one VIP point, and as you accumulate these points, you will be able to work your way through the various higher levels, including Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond.
Naturally, the perks that you get will grow as well, expanding to cover VIP customer support, birthday presents, personalised gifts, an anniversary bonus and even a personal account manager.
You’d struggle to find a casino site today that accepts as many of the most popular – and a fair few more obscure – payment methods as RockstarReels does. It’s also easy to make a deposit, via the ‘Cashier’ part of the site.

RockstarReels also gives its players all manner of options for taking money out of their account, although there are certain limitations to be aware of. For example, Skrill, WebMoney and QIWI are only an option for withdrawals if a successful payment was previously made with the same platform.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Withdrawal|
|Visa||£2.50||7 business days||Minimum £2.50|
|MasterCard||£2.50||7 business days||Minimum £2.50|

If you need help on a site like this, you can almost always expect to look at the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page first, which in the case of RockstarReels, gives replies to common queries such as “What forms of ID do you need to verify me?” and “How do I deposit funds into my casino account?”
Alternatively, you may be left with little choice other than getting in touch with the site team directly when a question of yours hasn’t been answered satisfactorily in the FAQs. Thankfully, RockstarReels provides a handy 24/7 ‘live chat’ feature and email contact form for doing precisely this, although on the negative side, we weren’t able to find any telephone numbers.
In its terms and conditions, RockstarReels makes clear that you shouldn’t attempt to sign up to the site if you are in a part of the world where online gambling is illegal. It also specifically names the following ‘restricted territories’ where, again, you are prohibited from using the site’s services.
ProgressPlay – the company that operates the RockstarReels site – is licensed and regulated by both Malta Gaming Authority and the Gambling Commission, the latter being the UK body that any gambling site should be registered with if it is to offer its services to British bettors. You can therefore have a lot of confidence in the reputability of the site.
RockstarReels may not seem that ‘rock-star-like’ in practice – it’s certainly not reckless or inclined to give a brilliant guitar solo. What it is instead, is a very tidy and complete casino site that actually embarrasses many much longer-lived and better-known rival gambling portals, especially with regard to the sheer number of games and accepted payment methods from which you can choose.
Become a member of RockstarReels today and you may not exactly become the new Springsteen or Bowie, but you can certainly be made to feel like them, given the many rewards on offer.
