When a new Nektan online casino hits the market there is not exactly an abundance of excitement from players.
Settling some time ago with the fact that Nektan had made the decision to prioritise quantity over quality, we have all come to expect nothing but mediocrity every time a new site comes from the operator.
However, over recent months things have begun to change, not a lot, but enough to make us pay attention, there have been sites from Nektan that, while still not surpassing the level of average, at least feel different, taking away that sensation of every Nektan site being the exact same layout and content, with nothing changed but the title and an occasional background image.
One of the newest online casinos to be adding an extra level to the offering from this network is Slot Strike, a site that while not the most impressive you’ll ever find certainly feels different, a bit, at least.
This is an online casino with a lot to do to impress players, but is it capable of doing so?
Design and theme
This isn’t a huge leap away from the norm for Nektan, but nor did it have to be, instead, Slot Strike is a variation on a theme that has seen very little in terms of variety over the years.
The logo, while subtle, is impressive enough and does a good job of setting the tone of the theme, as do slogans including “Strike It Lucky”, but Slot Strike does fall foul of a well-known Nektan problem, in that there simply is not enough of a commitment to the theme in terms of design, with everything else being a basic blue colour scheme.
This is a small criticism though, some effort has been made, and the rest of the site does look good, which is important, and new for sites on this network.
The usual ease of navigation that one expects from Nektan sites is here too, with everything easy to find, and thumbnails on the homepage doing what they need to.
Slot Strike is promising in terms of design, while issues have not all been fixed, everything is moving the right way, and that’s reason to be cautiously optimistic.
One criticism that could never be launched in the direction of Nektan sites is that they have a lack of choice when it comes to the games on offer, with a huge number of software developers providing games.
That trend has not changed here, with titles available at Slot Strike coming from 1X2 Network, Betdigital, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Core Gaming, ELK Studios, Evolution, Extreme Live Gaming, Eyecon, Felt, Gamevy, IGT, IWG, Microgaming, Nektan, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Realistic Games, Red Tiger Gaming, SG Digital, SG Gaming, Williams Interactive, and Yggdrasil.
Slots, table and card games, live dealer options, and more are available here, with countless variations of every game category to ensure that whoever you are and whatever your online casino tastes may be, there’s something to suit your needs here.
Is that enough?
The truest answer to that questions is not yet, there is potential in Slot Strike that we have not seen from Nektan sites before, and if this is the direction they keep moving in, it can only be good news going forward.
