Split Aces is named, assumedly, to ensure that there is absolutely no confusion when it comes to what this site is for.
Perhaps the most ham-handed title any casino has ever been given, Split Aces is far from unique or original at first glance, especially given the derivative nature of the design, which we will get into shortly.
Coming from Alpha Interactive Solutions N.V, a relative of the Game Tech Group N.V, there is some history that is worth mention here.
Although Game Tech seem to have sorted themselves out now, they have been caught engaging in unethical practices in the past, including offering bootleg NetEnt games to their players.
As an associate of Game Tech, Alpha Interactive is tainted by this history, and it is something that leads many to still not trust Game Tech or affiliated companies enough to sign 8p and make deposits at their online casinos.
However, this isn’t true of everybody, and to some, if a site on this network is good enough, they’ll give it the benefit of the doubt, for a little at least.
That puts a lot of pressure on Split Aces to create something impressive enough to cause prospective players to look past the questionable past of their associates, and choose to give this site a chance.
So, does Split Aces look capable of doing this?
Design and theme
There’s a simple rule in the online casino world. If you have any intention whatsoever of standing out in any way, it’s best not to opt for a black and gold colour scheme, because this over-used colour choice has been driven into the ground to the extent that it will immediately put off many online casino players, and certainly doesn’t give off the affluent and elegant tone that is intended.
Split Aces has a black and gold colour scheme, because of course it does.
With a name like Split Aces, it is clear that no amount of creative effort has been put anywhere near this online casino site, and the artwork is a testament to that laziness.
The logo is a crown, a gold, shiny crown, because apparently painting-by-numbers would be too imaginative here, while classic casino scenes are visible in black and white in the background to try (and fail) to bring a sense of gravitas to a site that is entirely lacking in it.
Navigation is simple enough, which is nice, but it’s also not even close to enough to make any kind of impact whatsoever as the design itself is so dismal you’ve probably stopped caring before you et to the thumbnails halfway down the homepage.
It would take a huge effort in terms of content for Split Aces to be able to make up for the totally appalling design work, and, to be fair, this site does a good job of that.
With titles coming from the likes of BetSoft, BG, Booongo, Evolution, EvoPlay, Extreme Live Gaming, Felix Gaming, Fugaso, GameART, GameScale, LuckyStreak, MrSlotty, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Play'n GO, Playson, SA Gaming, SG Digital, and Spinomenal, there’s something to cater for every taste here.
Slots come in video, classic, and jackpot variety, while blackjack, video poker, and more are available in the table game category, and can also be played in a live casino setting.
With micro bets, VIP games, and more on offer, there is no denying that as far as variety of software and content goes, Split Aces is competitive.
It isn’t competitive enough though, there are sites with better selections of games, and when the games are the only plus point, it makes this casino not worth your time.
