The first problem that Monster Casino faces, is that there are a few other sites with the word Monster in their name that are arguably better known, making a Google search for this site something of a difficulty. In an industry where brand identity is of the upmost importance, this creates an extra issue from the outset, and getting noticed in such a busy market is already difficult enough!
Monster Casino didn’t arrive on the scene until the later part of 2016, which did, to be fair, mean that very few words could be used in a title of a casino site that weren’t already taken due to the sheer number of sites that already exist.
It is this level of competition that is the biggest hurdle to climb for Monster Casino, and any other site that was released in 2016 or after. Getting noticed when there’s countless other options is not easy, and it takes some really hard work and at least on unique selling point, something which most sites seem to lack.
The assumption that a busy industry is an easy one to crack due to its popularity, appears to be one that is shared by many a mistaken casino site that is now floundering in mediocrity, so, does Monster Casino make the same mistakes?
Design and theme
With a name like Monster Casino, you know you’re getting some kind of monster based theme, and it’ll probably be terrifying, or adorable. If you were hoping on the latter of those two options, then read on, because this may be the site for you.
The mascot, if you will, at Monster Casino, is a small, green, spherical, one-eyed monster that is, it must be acknowledged, somewhat reminiscent of Mike from Monsters Inc. there’s nothing wrong with that of course, if you can gain some attention by borrowing design touches from hugely successful movies, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t, I guess.
The colour scheme is predominantly green and yellow for the design work at Monster Casino, with the centre of the homepage, which contains thumbnails that allow one click access to an impressive amount of the site’s most popular games, having a simple black background, allowing the thumbnails themselves to provide the colour and design.
This isn’t the most original looking site, but the design is nice, and the concept is good fun.
There’s two ways to go when choosing the software providers that are utilised on a site, you either take as many as you can to guarantee a huge amount of variety, or cherry pick the best of the bunch, and try and offer a smaller selection of top quality games.
Monster Casino has gone for the second of these two options, with games being provided by NextGen, Microgaming, NetEnt, and IGT. Obviously, as this site is under Nektan’s ownership, their software is also available.
This makes this site a strong choice for anybody who is looking for a carefully chosen selection of the best games around, a logic perhaps favoured by those who have been playing online casino games for a while.
With an impressive host of slot games, all of which are good quality, and a decent mix of table and card games, with several variations of blackjack, video poker, roulette, and more available, this is a solid mix of games, and one that might tempt in players.
This is one of the best offerings that has come from Nektan, who have favoured similar content and design in many of their sites, and is worth a look, but Monster casino needs something more if it’s going to stand out.
