The rising popularity of slots games has been impossible to ignore in recent years, and it’s clear in many ways that the online casino scene is more than aware of this. Perhaps the most obvious sign that casino sites are taking notice are the number of online casinos that have names and design themes dedicated to slots play. You’ll probably stumble upon many an online casino with ‘Slots’ or ‘Spins’ in its name, so it’s surprising that BetReels is one of comparatively few sites that have opted for ‘Reels’ as the slot related word in their name.
Like many of its slot focused rivals, BetReels arrived on the online casino market in 2016, immediately being faced with trying to make waves in one of the most competitive industries in the world, which means work was to be done from the moment the site stepped out from behind the curtain.
It takes more than just being a good site to make an impact on the busy online casino market, it has to be excellent, in every way, and then it’s only possible that the site will find a decent number of players from the mass of prospective customers.
Does BetReels put itself in a position to be competitive? Or is this another casino site destined for mediocrity?
Design and theme
BetReels has taken inspiration from the very slot games it is designed to promote, with the majority of the backdrop consisting of images from the various slot titles that are available at the site.
Aside from this design touches, the rest of the site is made up of various subtle shades of blue, BetReels quite literally lets the games speak for themselves here, which is an excellent message to convey through a design concept.
Continuing this theme, BetReels uses the popular tool of allow instant access to a variety of the site’s games via thumbnails on the homepage. The variety in size of these thumbnails allows these thumbnails to also be incorporated into the general design of the site.
There is no part of the design at BetReels, aside from the logo and background colours, that is not made up of images from slot games you can play at the site, which is a very clever idea, and executed well here.
Navigation is simple as well, allowing you to find any game, promotion, or information you may be looking for without any difficulty.
BetReels operates on the Nektan platform, so obviously Nektan games are available here, along with titles from the likes of NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive.
This is a list of some of the best software developers around, but in relation to many of BetReels’ competitors, it simply is not comprehensive enough. There needs to be more big names providing the games here if BetReels wants to succeed as a slots focused site.
As if often the case with sites of this nature, slots may be the focal point at BetReels, and with old favourites like Cleopatra and Starburst standing side by side with newer releases like Wild Toro and Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood, they clearly are, but that’s not all you’ll find.
BetReels also has a decent selection of table and card games on offer for those who prefer this game type, or just like variety from their casino sites, although the obvious focus on slots may put off those who are looking for somewhere to play top class casino games.
BetReels is a good site, and with a few more software developer added in the near future, it could well become a great one.
