At the end of 2019 The X Factor Games closed. Our review remains for reference only. Any links will take you to alternatives.
Following the success of Spin Genie, Pocket Fruity and Slingo.com, Gaming Realms looked towards Television for their next brands. Arrivals in this new stable of sites included Deal Or No Deal, Britain’s Got Talent and even Love Island. Joining them is The X Factor! The X Factor Games launched in 2016 and with the TV show expected to run until at least 2022 will probably be around for a few more years to come.
No Deposit Bonus
A year ago (November 2019) new players to The X Factor Games could sign up and grab a no deposit bonus. Sadly those days are long behind us so it’s the good old fashioned deposit bonus only. Become a depositor and you’ll be rewarded with a 200% bonus up to £50 (x50 wagering terms). This is similar to sister brands at BGT Games and Spin Genie.
As a Gaming Realms brand you’ll find various versions of Slingo to play at the site as well as their own slots. Top games include Slingo Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Pigasus, Slingo Reveal and Frooti Booti. There’s an X Factor version of Slingo as well as instant win games. Joining these games are a whole host of popular slots including Reel Talent, Lucha Legends, Nitro Circus, Fruits Go Wild, Halloween Jack, The Showman and BerryBurst.
Be A VIP
Casino games such as roulette and blackjack add to the roster. Plus there’s also Live Casino and mutliple instant win games. There are jackpot slots and some opportunities for video poker but these are mixed up in the various sections. Overall though there’s plenty to keep players entertained with top games from Net Entertainment, Yggdrasil and Microgaming.
Like other Gaming Realms brands, promotions are generally limited to the site’s VIP programme. As a VIP you can get 10% bonus cashback, exclusive VIP promos and priority withdrawals. Higher rollers can claim extra rewards as a Platinum VIP! There’s no benefits offered for regular players on smaller budgets! Players are advised to follow The X Factor Games social media page for exclusive Facebook competitions but these are rare. Thankfully they do host tournaments from slot providers and in truth things are improving after being stagnant for some time.
The X Factor Games App
The X Factor Games works well on mobile, desktop and tablet. They do have app options for Android and Apple users. Minimal withdrawal is £10 and there’s no maximum limit. Accounts can be come dormant after 18 months of no activity and will be closed within 30 days if that’s the case. Players who don’t withdraw any funds after this situation may lose anything that’s left on account.
With it’s no deposit bonus The X Factor Games might be worth a “yes” however watch out for the wagering terms. The game selection is good and there’s been huge improvements in terms of withdrawal and dormancy terms. We’d love to see more X Factor themed slots, games and promotions – just to help differentiate it more from Spin Genie, Slingo.com and Pocket Fruity.
