The entire concept of Red Spins as an online casino seems to be that there are slot games, and it is red.
While this may not sound like the most progressive of approaches to take to a slots theme and design, it must be noted that this is a Nektan site, and by their standards, this is genuinely boundary pushing.
There is a necessity to put Nektan sites in a different box to all other online casinos, because they all tend to look the same and involve the same content.
However, there have been a couple of exceptions to that rule as of late, while most Nektan sites are still basically clones of each other, there is apparently some small efforts being made towards change, and Red Spins is another of these sites.
And that’s why we have to look at it a little different, because while Red Spins is not a particularly exciting or impressive online casino (we’ll get to that, don’t worry!) it is a step in the right direction for Nektan, in fact, it’s just a step in a direction, which is a start.
So, is Red Spins a sign of things to come, are Nektan working towards a change from the norm we have all got so horrifically used to?
Design and theme
While Nektan are doing something different by their standards here, the design of Red Spins is still very predictable.
Most of the colour scheme is red, and there’s reels in the logo, that’s pretty much all of the work that has gone into creating this casino, and it just isn’t enough.
It isn’t a bad looking site, but that’s mainly because unless you really don’t like red, there’s not enough going on for the site not to be attractive, it’s just blocks of colour.
The thumbnails on the homepage are presented in a different way to that which we’re used to from Nektan, which again, is slightly refreshing, but isn’t close to enough to make the difference.
Nektan casinos are always strong when it comes to ease of navigation, and Red Spins actually may be better than the average here, with various thumbnails allowing instant access to popular casino games, and information about promotions and the Red Spins site itself all available on the homepage.
It’s important that we look at Red Spins with optimistic signs, this may be Nektan’s first move to bringing a genuinely well designed site to the table, but they’re still a fair while away from that at this point.
One thing that we have never and could never take away from Nektan is the wide array of games from various software developers that are available across their sites, and while these games are essentially the same at each site, the collection is still impressive.
This is evidenced again at Red Spins with titles at this casino coming from the likes of 1X2 Network, Aristocrat Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Core Gaming, ELK Studios, Evolution, Extreme Live Gaming, Eyecon, Felt, Gamevy, IGT, Nektan, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Realistic Games, SG Digital, SG Gaming, Williams Interactive, and Yggdrasil.
Slots, table games, live dealer options, and scratchcards are all available in abundance at Red Spins, so whatever you’re into, you’ll find it here.
But is that enough?
The answer to that question is probably, not yet. While Red Spins shows some growth from Nektan, which is something many of us had given up on ever seeing, it also shows how much further there still is to go.
If this is a direction Nektan keep moving in, however, then maybe they’ll get there.
