It’s not easy being a new site in the online casino market, but Power Spins comes via the people behind bgo.com, which certainly helps it get a foot in the door.
Not only that, but Power Spins clearly understands straight off the bat that something special has to be on offer to lure players away from their usual sites, or even to capture the attention of those who are actively looking for a new place to play.
This understanding is made clear from the second you visit the site, to be greeted by the following words in the tab on your browser “Free Spins Every Day”. Of all the four word phrases that can cause unadulterated joy amongst online casino players (“Win a luxury cruise”, “new NetEnt slot launched”, and so on) few can come close to free spins every day.
So, Power Spins has your attention, at least for the short term, so along with these daily free spins that your anxious to find out more about, what else does the site have to ensure that they can keep you for the long term? What touches and gaming options does Power Spins have that nobody else can match?
Design and theme
Power Spins is a site that is focused on slot games, and clearly wants you to remain aware of this, because every aspect of the design concept is based around it.
This isn’t a bad thing necessarily, and certainly isn’t when it’s executed this well. At the time of writing, the background images at the site switch between the dark blue, electricity themed design work of Power Spins, and the Hawaiian luxury theme of modern NetEnt classic, Aloha! Cluster Pays.
Then you have the thumbnails. Now, there’s nothing fresh or new about a casino site having thumbnails on the homepage that allow direct access to popular games, but rarely will you see those thumbnails take up as much space as you do here.
There is an abundance of thumbnails here, and if you thought that may get a little confusing, fear not, because they are split into categories to ensure you can find what you’re looking for straight from the homepage, which is something you will not often find at other sites.
This is not the most complex design theme ever created, but for what the site is, and what the design concept is intended to represent, it’s pretty close to perfect!
So, we have firmly established that Power Spins is a site that focuses on the games that are on offer, and specifically the slots, as the name suggests (although slots are not the only option). But the question is, can the games live up to the hype?
With titles coming via IGT Interactive, NetEnt, Playtech, Quickspin, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive amongst others, some of the best software developers around provide the games here, although there are some noticeable omissions which one hopes will be rectified, but it’s hard to be disappointed when there’s this many top quality games on offer.
Divine Fortune, Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist, Buffalo Blitz, Gonzo’s Quest, the Age of the Gods series, Fluffy Favourites, Dazzle Me, Motörhead, whether you’re after new releases, old favourites, or lesser known games, slots fans are covered here.
Then there’s roulette, poker, baccarat, and blackjack for the table and card game lover. This is a small selection, and feels like an afterthought, but it’s nice to have something different.
A few more software providers and more variation on software providers and Power Spins could be amazing, as it is, it’s still very good.
