Star Spins Review

Considering the rising popularity of slot games, it is a surprise that more sites do not focus entirely on this particular gaming type. The first (and still only) site in the UK to do so was Star Spins, a slot only site from the people at the Gamesys Group, who have been working in the field for a very long time.

Finding a niche like this has two plausible outcomes. Obviously, providing nothing but slots cuts out a part of your possible audience who like variety in their game play, even a few table games would pull in a few customers. But at the same time, those who exclusively play slots are going to be much more tempted by a site that focuses entirely on that particular gaming type.

When you consider these two possibilities, it becomes a matter of quality of content, if the site is good enough to gain the attention of every slots fan who comes by, then Star Spins will pull in quite the audience, but if the site isn’t good enough, then the lack of other games will make it less of a temptation.

Design and theme

With a name like Star Spins, you probably come in with an assumption of what this site is going to look like, and your assumption is probably exactly right.

Black and gold is the predominant colour scheme, with the logo incorporating a star. The Spins part of the title is well represented in the general design concept as well, with surprisingly subtle neon images of 7s, bells, cherries, and other classic slot symbols.

There isn’t a huge amount of originality to the design of this site, but there doesn’t need to be. The concept is vintage, old school slot designs with a modern twist, and the execution of this idea is particularly impressive, creating a very attractive site that lets you know exactly what you are getting her, namely slots, slots, and more slots!

Navigation here is simple enough, although a few sub-categories would help with ease of access to your favourite slots. There are also no games accessible directly from the homepage, something that has proved popular at other sites and perhaps something worth considering for Start Spins in the future.

Games

If you’re going to cut out everything but slots, you have to ensure that you are offering quite the selection of slots. With software from the likes of Gamesys, IGT Interactive, and Williams Interactive, Star Spins certainly makes sure it has choice available for its players.

One of the biggest unique selling points of Star Spins, is that it has been known for slot games to arrive here first, and there are a number of exclusive games that you will not find elsewhere.

However, if you are more fond of what you know, you won’t be left out here either. Popular titles on offer include Rainbow Riches, Da Vinci Diamonds, and Cleopatra. You’ll also find TV and movie themed slots that include Family Guy, Jeopardy, and Transformers.

The main problem with Star Spins, is that there are simply not enough slots on offer to warrant there being no other gaming types. Being slots focused is all well and good, but unless you have the biggest collection of slots around, which Star Spins certainly does not, then players are left wondering why there haven’t been a few table games, and maybe some scratch card games thrown in.

With the competitive nature of the online casino market, it’s understandable that everyone is looking for a niche, but all Star Spins have accomplished is making their site feel unfinished.
