First things first, Glimmer Casino has something which I can safely describe as my biggest pet hate in the online casino world.
If you have the page open, and then you go to another tab, there is a message on the Glimmer tab that says “Hey, Come Back”. I know this is a very subjective opinion, and you may like that, but to me, firstly I find it irritating, and secondly, I find it questionable for a site working in an industry that needs constant dedication to protecting gambling addicts and other vulnerable players.
Now that’s out of the way, Glimmer Casino was launched in 2014 on the popular Progress Play network, a network that now offers a large number of sites, which could actually work against Glimmer due to the fact that its brethren sites could also be considered direct rivals. But even if there isn’t competition from its siblings, Glimmer still has a lot of it.
The online casino market is one of the busiest in the world, and a few years’ experience isn’t enough on its own. So, does Glimmer Casino do what it needs to and offer fresh and exciting options for players that will ensure a good number of customers, even in this competitive market?
Design and theme
With a name like Glimmer Casino, you’re probably expecting a certain level of shiny, fabulous imagery, and you will not be disappointed (unless you were hoping this wouldn’t be true, then you probably will be).
When you arrive at Glimmer Casino, you are immediately met with the image of a shimmering (or should that be glimmering) disco ball, shining blue and purple to suggest the colour scheme which is carried out across the site.
However, this is clearly a site that was designed with the understanding that going all-out on the theme would’ve made it almost impossible to look at due to the sheer brightness, so instead it is dark blues and purples that are the main colours in the background, allowing for shiny additions without the site becoming too much for the sensitive eyes of players. Between the various disco balls, you will find thumbnails of various sizes for popular games, and all sections of the site are easy to find with the help of the simple navigation the site can boast.
It's a predictable design concept, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing, especially not when said concept is this well executed.
The Glimmer Casino site has been around for a while now, and one would hope that by now, there would be a good collection of games on offer.
With 1X2gaming, Blueprint Gaming, ELK Studios, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, and Thunderkick, good is the least that one can say about it!
If you’re a slots fan, enjoy new releases from the last 12 months like Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild, Motorhead, Wild Toro, Sam on the Beach, Joker Pro, and many more.
If you’re fonder of the old favourites when it comes to slots, then Foxin’ Wins, Gonzo’s Quest, Bridesmaids, Dazzle Me, Dracula and many more are waiting for you too.
If you prefer table and card games, then you’re covered, because baccarat, video poker, blackjack, roulette, and many more are on offer here, some in various forms, and many available with a live dealer option as well.
Granted, this latter game type could have more choices, but Glimmer Casino is clearly slots focused above all else, and in that regard, it’s very impressive.
Essentially, if you like slots and disco balls, then this is simply your perfect site.
