Fruity Vegas Review
Fruity Vegas was launched in February of 2016, and is immediately unfortunate in that its name makes one immediately think of Freaky Vegas, which is one of the most unique and innovative sites we’ve seen hit the online casino market in some time.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as this gives the instant sense of quality to Fruity Vegas, all this site has to do is stand up with its almost namesake in terms of content and originality.
This is doubtful, however, as Fruity Vegas is a site operated by Nektan, and if there’s one thing that Nektan is certainly not known for, it’s originality.
However, if there’s an exception that proves this rule then it may well be Fruity Vegas, a site that doesn’t have a layout identical to all other sites on the network, which immediately makes it stand out.
Obviously, it takes a lot more than looking different than the average Nektan site if an online casino is to find success in this competitive market, but it’s certainly a good start, is Fruity Vegas capable of following it up?
At the time of writing, Fruity Vegas has a decent enough set of promotions to offer, in terms of number at least, but many of them are low-level offers like a Refer a Friend bonus, so they don’t create a lot of excitement, but at least show a degree of effort.
Design and theme
Vegas themed sites are abundant in the world of online casinos, and most of them look pretty much identical, and the same could be said of Nektan sites.
Impressively, Fruity Vegas manages to not fall into either of these traps, but less (or perhaps more) impressively, it manages to look worse than all of them.
The thing with Nektan sites all looking the same is that they layout is attractive and easy to use, so if a site differs from that, one would expect the layout and design to be similarly functional and nice to look at, but it is not.
From the background that shows hazy images of slot machines that could be straight out of a beachside casino in Skegness (which is probably not what they were going for) to the boring logo, to the black and red colour scheme, nothing stands out here except for the relentless averageness of the Fruity Vegas site.
Navigation is simple enough, but that’s the least one expects, which makes it a bad sign that it is probably the best thing that can be said about the design of this site.
Not to separate itself too much from its network brethren, Fruity Vegas offers the traditional collection of games available at Nektan sites, with titles coming from a list of software developers that includes 888 Holdings, Bally Wulff, Blueprint Gaming, ELK Studios, Eyecon, IGT, IWG, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, PariPlay, SG Gaming, Thunderkick, and Williams Interactive.
This would be an impressive list if it was in any way unique, but as it is more or less the same as you will find at any other Nektan site, a lot of the shine is taken off.
However, if Fruity Vegas is your first site on this network, then there’s a decent amount to enjoy, with a strong selection of slots, as well as table and card games and classic slots and arcade games. You will also find a handful of scratchcards available at Fruity Vegas if instant win is more your thing.
Fruity Vegas is an okay site, in the same way that all other Nektan sites are, but at this point, okay simply won’t cut it anymore.
