Superheroes, they’re a thing, have you noticed? It’s becoming almost impossible to turn anywhere without finding something superhero themed, and the current trend in the online casino market is for new sites to be superhero themed in order to try and capitalise on the frankly outrageous popularity of all things muscly and caped at this point!
Enter Fantastic Spins, the newest site on the Dragonfish Slots Network which brought you the likes of Slot Crazy, and a plethora of other sites.
Dragonfish sites are incredibly hit and miss, sometimes, a new site on the network is amazing, but too often, you just get a slight variation in appearance and then identical content to what you’d find at any of its sister sites.
On top of that, Dragonfish have so many sites now, that a new release like Fantastic Spins has to fight its way to the top of the pack within Dragonfish sites, before it can even start to be competitive in the general market, which is undoubtedly one of the toughest global markets to break into.
So, no pressure, Fantastic Spins, but you’ve got a superhuman amount of work ahead of you, so I hope all that spandex isn’t only for show!
Design and theme
When you first land at Fantastic Spins, you are met with two characters, a male and female superhero, who look exactly like you expect them to, from the hair to the outfit, then only thing that you may not have guessed is the colour scheme of their costumes, which is blue, white, and yellow, the rest is absolute painting-by-numbers.
“Bonuses Bigger Than Our Hero’s Chin” is the claim at the top of the page, and with 100 free spins when you make your first deposit (minimum £10, 20 spins given a day for five days, wagering requirements vary from game to game) that may be a boast they can back up.
There’s nothing in any way new or fresh about this site, and it makes it very difficult to get excited about. Navigation is simple enough, but only in the same way it is everywhere else, thumbnails on the homepage linking to popular games, game categories and information on promotions are easy to find, it just doesn’t connect.
Everything from the colour scheme to the bold and bright design concept feels like something we’ve seen multiple times before, and it makes this new site look dated, which is would be an impressive accomplishment, if it wasn’t such a disappointing one.
Dragonfish sites rarely disappoint when it comes to their gaming options however, and Fantastic Spins is no different, which is both a compliment and a criticism, because a collection of games from 888 Holdings, Eyecon, IGT, NetEnt, NYX Gaming, OpenBet, PariPlay, SG Gaming, Stars Group, and Williams Interactive may be impressive, but it’s also something we’ve seen many times before.
If you are a newbie to the online casino scene, and you are looking for a simple site that can give you a sample of what to expect, with top-quality games from well-reputed software developers, then Fantastic Spins is perfect for you.
You can enjoy everything from the classics (Gonzo’s Quest, Fluffy Favourites) to new releases (Butterfly Staxx, Foxin’ Wins Again) to jackpot slots (Wonder Woman, Millionaire Genie) and a bunch of table and card games as well, it’d be a great introduction for you.
However, if you have spent any time at other sites, then everything that is here you would have seen before, and in a nicer package with more gaming options available.
When it comes to Fantastic Spins and where to find them, it probably isn’t here.
