The say if you plan to take a “new year new me” attitude, it is sensible to get all of the old you out that you need to before the end of that year.
We can only hope this is the attitude that Nektan is taking, and that we’ll see something different in the new year, because Bonzo Spins is just more of the same from an operator that everybody must be getting bored of by now.
Despite a brief moment in mid to late 2018 when a couple of online casino releases suggested a move away from the tedious template for Nektan, it appears that decision was overruled, and they’re back to what they’ve been doing the whole time.
It’s becoming difficult to say anything new about Nektan casinos, because when even the thumbnails on the homepage are in the same order as the last Nektan site you saw, what is there to learn?
Up to 100 spins across your first four deposits (valid at the time of writing, subject to change, terms and conditions apply) is a nice touch for Bonzo Spins, but it takes a lot more than a tempting welcome bonus to lure players in for the long time, and, like its many network brethren before it, Bonzo Spins is severely lacking when it comes to depth.
Design and theme
At this point, there are only two parts of a Nektan casino’s design to review, because everything else is the same as it’s ever been.
The first of those two is the logo, which actually isn’t too bad here. Don’t get us wrong, it’s awful, the use of a different colour for every individual letter of the word ‘Spins’ makes it look like a child designed it, but the ‘Bonzo’ bit is okay, and by Nektan’s usual standards, it’s a masterpiece.
Next you have the background, which is utterly dreadful. Combinations of blues and various simple images relating vaguely to casino play stand behind the thumbnails on the homepage.
In case you are new to Nektan sites, the homepage has a variety of thumbnails, which can be navigated using simple categories on the side of the page.
As always, the design is good when it comes to ease of use, but that was true hundreds of sites ago when this template was introduced, and the fact that Nektan have failed to deviate almost at all from that in the time since is just depressing.
There is nothing particularly wrong with how Bonzo Spins looks, it’s not particularly attractive, but that’s subjective.
However, there certainly isn’t anything to get excited about.
The games on offer at Nektan casinos are always the sites’ saving grace and that’s the case again here, with titles from 1X2 Network, Aristocrat Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Core Gaming, edict egaming, ELK Studios, Evolution, Extreme Live Gaming, Eyecon, Felt, Gamevy, IWG, IGT, Nektan, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Realistic Games, Red Tiger Gaming, SG Digital, SG Gaming, Williams Interactive, and Yggdrasil ensuring there is something to suit every gamer’s taste.
Slots, table and card games, scratchcards, and more are available, you really will be spoilt for choice here, and that is definitely an upside.
The problem with Nektan sites is that the games collection is all they have, everything feels lazy, painting by numbers to the extreme, and it’s just boring.
If all you care about is games, then maybe Bonzo Spins would be a good choice for you, but to be honest, there are several better sites with more games to offer, so maybe just go to one of those!
