4 Common Mistakes Carried Out With Pay By Phone Billing

mobile commuterIf you’ve been following us for a while now, you’d know that we are strong proponents for pay by phone billing. Hell, it’s even in our name: casinopaybyphone.co.uk! And why shouldn’t we? It’s fast, easy, efficient and can be a great alternative to other payment methods at mobile casinos.

However, not all players out there are entirely sure how they work. Worse yet, they think they know but continue to make basic errors that stop them from putting down a payment. Here are the four of the most common (yet simple) mistakes players who use pay by phone billing make.


Failing To Check Details

mobile payment methodsThe first error people tend to make when it comes to pay by phone billing is forgetting to check their details first. This really is a simple fix and 9/10 is usually what causes problems for players, meaning troubleshooting should be a quick and easy process. However, it is still prevalent and people could take extra measures to avoid it.

Our advice is to you is to check, check and check again that the details you’ve sent are correct. It’ll drive you nuts if you keep getting wrong what can easily be solved quite quickly.

Not Replying To Confirmation

Mobile PaymentsIf you do even a basic Google search on pay by phone billing at mobile casinos, you will find that in order to secure a payment you need to send your initial payment text and reply to a confirmation text in order for it to go through.

A serious amount of players don’t know this until it’s too late and end up not paying anything because of their ignorance of the confirmation-based system. Make sure you don’t do this otherwise you won’t get money into your wagering account.

Entering Confirmation Code Incorrectly

pay by phone validation codeSimilar to the above post thought not quite the same is the fact that many people do not check to see if they’ve entered their confirmation code correctly with pay by phone billing. Basically, check your SMS message before you send it just to be sure.

If you fail to do this, the transaction will become null and void, so make sure you do the process properly the first time. Our advice would be to copy and paste the confirmation code from the original SMS into the one you want to send out. That way, there’s no way you can get it wrong.

Exceeding £30 Limit

It’s pretty common knowledge but every network has imposed this limit to protect the player from overspending. However, those new to pay by phone billing wouldn’t be so savvy and might spend too much on their first go.

 

Basically, all it takes is some extra effort on part of the player to do their research before choosing to use pay by phone billing. You don’t want to end up overspending or not spending at all because of a silly error that could be fixed in a second.

ShadowBet Casino Review — A Great Underground Operator

shadow-bet-logo-small

For many, the title of this little operator might be a little off-putting at first. Of course, there are casinos out there that could be illegitimate. However, we urge you not to be so hasty in your judgement of ShadowBet casino as it could be one of the better underground operators that we have seen. Many mainstream casinos struggle to garner mainstream appeal yet ShadowBet manages to get many of the things right any big-name operators don’t.

Fixed with a sleek and dark colour scheme, it’s difficult not to be mesmerised by ShadowBet’s look as it just oozes cool. It may deliver in the looks department, but does it encapsulate other important factors? We think that it does though there are some areas for improvement. Let’s take a dive into the details right here.

Whatever path you choose, you’ll have an easy job of making any kind of payment anywhere. You can expect also a minimum deposit of £10 up to a maximum of £5,000 daily.

The Phantom’s Curse Slot Review — A Bonus Packed Tribute

The Phantom's Curse by NetEntThe Phantom’s Curse by NetEnt might be one of the most highly anticipated slots ever, due to the fact that fans of the brand expected it to be released last year, yet copyright issues held the title up for a while. Now, almost twelve months after we first heard about the title, the game has finally been given widespread release.

The good news is that it seems like it has all been worth the wait, as The Phantom’s Curse not only looks spectacular but also boasts a range of innovative bonus features and plenty of chances to win big. Read our full, in-depth review below to learn everything you need to know about this thrilling new slot, including how you can maximise your winnings and what makes the game so special.

 


Gameplay

The Phantom’s Curse is a five reel, forty payline slot from gaming giants NetEnt. It stands as the the newest installment in the brand’s Universal Monsters series and, as the name suggests, is based around the French novel The Phantom of the Opera. The slot is playable from as little as 20p up to £200 per spin, and is available across all devices making it the perfect game for all different types of gamers and budgets.

The Phantom's Curse Gameplay Screenshot

Visually, The Phantom’s Curse is stunning and we’re sure fans of the musical or classic novel will be more than happy with NetEnt’s interpretation. The game is set within the opera hall, with the reels hanging against the seats as if you were getting a view from the stage. Symbols on the reels include characters from the story such as Christine, the subject of the Phantom’s affections, and other items such as daggers, hand mirrors, roses and ruby rings.

The lower value symbols are represented by the four traditional playing card suits (hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades) , whilst the highest value symbol in the game is represented by the Phantom himself and he wil reward you with 10x your wager for a five of a kind combination.

The Phantom's Curse Paytable

Although The Phantom’s Curse’s appeal lies, ultimately, in it’s bonus features, the base game is still very much enjoyable and as the slot pays both ways, there’s still plenty of chances to win big. Furthermore, as the slot boasts a healthy RTP of 96.57% and a maximum win of 800x your wager on every spin, we’d classify this title as medium variance which means it pays out decent amounts, fairly regularly.

 

Bonus Features

The Phantom’s Curse boasts not one, but three separate bonus features which have each been specifically designed for this title. This means that not only do they all fit the theme perfectly, but they also stand as great examples of NetEnt’s creative flair and keen eye for attention to detail.

The Phantoms Curse Bonus Round

The first feature is the Pick and Click bonus, which is triggered when the stacked Phantom symbol lands fully on reel one, and the stacked Christine symbol lands full on reel five. When the round begins, players are transported to a separate screen where they must pick from eight roses in order to win cash prizes.  Players will be able to continue choosing roses, and therefore picking up coin wins, until they are confronted with a ‘blocker’ symbol. At this point they’ll move on to stage 2 of the round.

In stage 2 of the Pick and Click bonus round, players must choose from three mirrors to reveal a multiplier of either 1x, 2x or 3x. This is then applied to your winnings from stage 1 and means that the round carries the potential to reward players with up to 36x their original stake.

The second bonus feature in The Phantom’s Curse is the Masked Phantom Re-spin feature, and this is activated when a stacked Phantom symbol appears on reel one, and a stacked mask symbol appears on reel five. Here the symbols that triggered the feature will turn into wild symbols and remain sticky for one free respin. This gives players a much greater chance at creating a high paying winning combination.

The Phantom's Curse Free Spins Round

Last but by no means least is the game’s extra spins round. This bonus feature is triggered when players find a chandelier symbol on reels one, three and five. Unlike normal extra spins rounds, players aren’t granted a specific number of extra spins when they start the round. Instead, a chandelier hands above the reels, and the round will continue until it falls!

The Phantom's Curse Free Spins Win

During the extra spins round, landing a masked Phantom symbol on a particular reel can result in a section of the rope holding the chandelier in place being cut. There are five ropes, and when all give are cut, the chandelier will fall and the feature will end.  However, it’s not all doom and gloom when a masked Phantom symbol appears however, as these symbols also act as wilds for the feature. Furthermore, every time a rope is cut, the masked Phantom symbol will turn fully stacked, giving you plenty of chances to create winning combinations.

 

Performance

NetEnt have been developing The Phantom’s Curse for well over a year and so it’s no surprise that the graphics and gameplay are both flawless. As a branded slot, we always knew that NetEnt would have gone the extra mile with this game and we’re very glad they did. Moreover, as the game uses HTML5 technology, it’s a dream to play from any device, including iOS and Android smartphones, as it’s both quick to load and responsive.

The Phantom's Curse Big Win

 

Last words…

All in all, The Phantom’s Curse is an incredible addition to NetEnt’s jam-packed branded roster. Although we were disappointed last year when the game didn’t come to fruition, as they say, good things come to those who wait and we think this game was definitely worth the extra few months we had to twiddle our thumbs!

Not only is The Phantom’s Curse aesthetically pleasing, but it’s also incredibly rewarding if you can manage to trigger one of the games three bonus features. Furthermore, as it’s available across all devices and with a low minimum bet limit, it’s a real crowd pleaser, even if you weren’t a fan of the Phantom of the Opera to begin with!

International Gaming Awards 2018 Winners Announced

International Gaming AwardsWithin the iGaming calendar, one week always stands out. The ICE Totally Gaming Conference, which took place last week in London, is a yearly event which allows casino suppliers, operators and software developers to showcase their new products and services, as well as allowing industry experts and journalists to get all the insider information about what online gamers can expect in the year to come. It also, however, gives the industry a chance to celebrate the most innovative creations from the past year and congratulate creators on their successes.

The International Gaming Awards are held on the eve of the ICE conference, and so this years winners have already been announced. The IGA celebrate all those who have brought creativity and quality to the gaming sector, and so it’s great to see some of our favourite gaming brands have been recongised. Read on to see who won big in the online section of the awards, and what this means for players.

 


 

Innovator of the Year

Yggdrasil Gaming LogoPerhaps one of the most coveted prizes of the night, the Innovator of the Year award acknowledges those who have put hard work into producing new and exciting products, and who have managed to change the gaming sector for the better. This year’s award we’re pleased to announce, was won by Yggdrasil Gaming – one of our favourite software developers.

Yggdrasil have won the award multiple times before, including both in 2016 and 2017, which is testament to their great, groundbreaking slots. In the past year Yggdrasil have created some of the best new titles around, including Orient Express, Reptoids and Beauty and the Beast.

Innovator of the Year is always a tough category to compete in and to be awarded the prize Yggdrasil beat out other world-class software developers such as NetEnt and Microgaming. It’s safe to say, therefore, that Yggdrasil were over the moon with their win, with CEO Fredrik Elmqvist commenting that the brand ‘always strive to be the best’ and so it’s ‘an honour to be recognised by our industry peers.’

 

Innovator Operator

SlotsMillion LogoAnother highly sought after prize is the Innovator Operator award, which celebrates the casinos who are going above and beyond to offer the best casino experience possible to their players. SlotsMillion were the casino to walk away with this prize, and we couldn’t be happier for them as in the past year they’ve proved what an absolutely superb casino they are!

SlotsMillion was the world’s first virtual reality casino and, although that’s impressive in it’s own right, they also offer one of the most packed out rosters of slots we’ve ever seen. Currently offering over 1,000 different titles, the casino is committed to championing smaller software developer brands as well as the heavy hitters, which means SlotsMillion players can enjoy one of the most diverse and extensive collections of slots around.

 

Slots Provider

Play'n Go LogoPerhaps unsurprisingly, after the successful year they’ve had, Play’n GO were named Slots Provider of the Year; an award that definitely carries some weight! Unlike the Innovator of the Year award, this prize celebrates a commitment to consistently delivering high quality games, and making sure they’re available across all sorts of casinos and platforms.

This is the second year in a row that Play’n GO have walked away with the award, and the judges commended the brand for their unwavering dedication to creating beautiful games with unique features and flawless gameplay. CEO of Play’n GO, Johan Tornqvist was thrilled by the win and promised players they could continue expecting the same level of excellence. He said ‘Producing quality slots is what we’re known for, and although we’ve greatly expanded our product range of late, this will remain a key priority for us for the foreseeable future.’

 

Slots Operator

VideoSlots LogoVideoSlots also celebrated at the awards, having picked up a win in the Slots Operator category. If you’ve ever played at VideoSlots, this shouldn’t come as a shock however, as the casino offers over 2,000 different slots titles from over 70 different games designers! This is not only impressive, but it’s exactly the sort of committment to slots that the judges were looking for!

VideoSlots started out all the way back in 2011, and so it’s very nice to see them get the recognition they deserve. In a press release, the casino commented that they are ‘very proud of all our products’ and’all the amazing providers that we work with’. They also thanked their legions of players for helping them get where they are, as well as thanking all their staff members who work hard to make sure they offer a great experience.

You can read the full list of IGA 2018 winners here. We’d like to congratulate everyone involved for making iGaming one of the most exciting and innovative sectors to be part of, and for creating some excellent casino products and experiences in the past year. We can’t wait to see what 2018 holds for all the winners and nominees!

Best Ways To Casino Deposit Without Hidden Fees

casino deposit feesMany people think that paying additional fees when making casino payments isn’t fair. When you withdraw, you lose a small portion of your winnings. When you deposit, you get less to gamble with than you actually deposited. And the more you do this, the more you lose in the long run.

Luckily, it’s possible to avoid such fees completely while still enjoying your favourite mobile casinos. It all depends on the casino policy and the payment methods that you use. Not all of them have transactional fees, no matter if you want to cash in or out. That’s what we’ll focus on today. Read carefully and remember it if you want to save your money. For a regular gambler, it could amount to a small fortune after a while.


 

Casino Deposit Without Fees

While some payment methods apply a service fee all the time, others keep nothing to themselves. We won’t cover them all, but we’ll mention both the best and the worst choices in terms of casino depositing fees and their sizes.

 

How Not To Casino Deposit

just don't do itMany payment options do not have fees that would be taken from the player’s accounts or transactions. The cost starts rising when you use particular payment methods via other services, pay from another country or use a different currency altogether. However, there are some ways of casino depositing that will take a portion of your deposit every time.

Universally, almost all e-wallets have certain transaction fees. For example, Neteller subtracts 1.9% of your money when you top up the e-wallet. You can’t use Neteller without depositing into it first, though, so there’s no way to avoid this annoying fee.

The same applies to Skrill, another extremely popular e-wallet that most online casinos accept. It also takes 1.9% of your money when you pay with a bank card. That’s, by the way, what Skrill does best. It allows paying with a bank card much more conveniently. If you deposit £100 every month, that’s almost £2 ‘monthly’ fee.

 

The Best Ways To Casino Deposit

mobile casino playerOn the other hand, pay by phone bill methods never charge fees directly from their users. Instead, payment intermediaries support this service, leaving mobile gamblers unscathed. While these methods do not support casino withdrawals, deposits are always free, at least when it comes to the service itself.

This makes low payments especially fair when using pay by phone. Some other methods have minimum fees which can get feel really high when dealing with very small sums of money. Since pay by phone billing allows tiny transactions up to £30 only, the zero charge is actually what makes this method viable in the first place.

So, whether you use Boku, Payforit, Pay by Phone or any other mobile depositing service, you can deposit safely, knowing that whatever you pay for, you get in full. This doesn’t mean that fees can’t be applied by other means. However, when it comes to these methods, they’re completely free more frequently than others.

 

Casinos Can Still Apply Transaction Fees

casino hidden feesSpeaking of other means, which we mentioned earlier, even payment methods that have no fees can cost a little extra. That’s because casino operators themselves can add transaction fees on top. This way, a fee is deducted from a deposit or a withdrawal that goes to the casino itself. That’s why it’s very important to check the terms of each casino you’re considering or already playing at.

Needless to say, such fees don’t come in place of the other fees that are inbuilt to the service. Multiple fees can stack, making the transaction even more costly to the player. Some casinos add fees to almost all the payment methods, while others refrain from such practices altogether. In general, it’s a good way to make players use certain depositing methods instead of the other ones.

When gambling operators do decide to charge players for playing at their sites, they often stay away from phone billing options. That’s why we chose them as the best way to casino deposit without fees. For example, Paysafecard is also free (except for a monthly account maintenance fee), but casinos like to charge extra for using it. Up to 5% or even 9% transaction fees are possible.

So, our ultimate advice is to continue using phone billing, unless your casino has a better offer. In most cases, though, it will be completely free. To make sure that it’s so, always check the payments section and FAQ of a new casino. They must provide this information if they’re legit, so you’ll see in advance what you would be paying for and how much.

New Casumo Casino Player Casually Hits €214,717 Jackpot

hall of gods jackpot casumo casinoCasumo casino has struck again with a jackpot win of €214,717 (that’s roughly £188,480) last week. Although this isn’t as impressive as the recent and the largest ever £6.4m jackpot win at Casumo casino, the newest winner must have been just as happy. After all, you don’t always get so successful on your first try of a new slot game.


 

New Casumo Casino Player From Germany Gets Lucky

Casumo LogoThe lucky player had joined Casumo casino in December 2017, so he’s still a relatively new player. He was probably still a yellow belt or so – one of the early levels at the casino. The winner said that his favourite game was Book of Dead slot, which he’s been playing for weeks. However, that wasn’t the slot which made him rich.

He must have gotten tired of Book of Dead and decided to try something else. After all, Casumo casino has over 1,000 games to choose from. The German watched a video on YouTube about Hall of Gods slot by NetEnt. It seemed pretty cool, so the player figured he’d also give it a chance. What’s more, the game boasted a jackpot of £3 million at the time, so it was a perfect occasion. Maybe he even knew that the previous £6.4m win came from this same game, too?

Like all NetEnt games, Hall of Gods has three jackpots: mini, midi and mega. Although the player didn’t hit the grand prize, the Gods still favoured him with a middle jackpot of €214,717. It may not be the largest jackpot ever, but it only took a €1.20 bet, so the return is still impressive.

 

€214,717 Jackpot Is Nothing To Brag About

silentLike many jackpot winners, the winning spin wasn’t what this gambler expected. He was just spinning Hall of Gods casually, trying the new slot out. When he hit the jackpot with €1.20 bet, he thought that it’s not true. Clearly, the slot malfunctioned or maybe it was just a dream. But after having reassured himself that this was all real, the player decided to keep the news to himself.

He did go to celebrate on the weekend and maybe told all about his fortune to his friends by now. By the time of winning, he chose to keep it to himself and dreamt of two things only. All he wanted was a new car and a journey through Asia. It’s more than reasonable with a jackpot like that, so we hope the player actually fulfills his dreams.

 

Hall Of Gods Slot

hall of gods netentWe don’t know which YouTube video exactly inspired the German to give this NetEnt slot a spin. However, we can easily understand why he eventually chose this progressive jackpot slot. For one thing, it’s based on Norse mythology and features Gods as extremely high paying symbols. There are also a few special features, including extra spins with a x3 multiplier.

The highlight of the slot is the bonus round that offers jackpot wins. It’s a pick-me-bonus, so whether you win a jackpot or not depends on your own choices. It features 15 shields hiding jackpot logos and random cash prizes. Collect three of the same items and the prize is yours, be it a simple coin win or a mega jackpot.

Hall of Gods has already rewarded many players with riches, although it’s less than a year old. And since the last winner only took a midi jackpot, the grand prize is still up for grabs. Think you have a chance? Try it at Casumo or any other mobile casino with NetEnt software.

The 3 Biggest Reasons Mobile Deposits Are The Safest Form Of Payment

Secure PhoneMobile deposits have gained quite a bit of popularity over recent years, and with good reason. They are easy, convenient and make life so much easier for the depositing online gambling players. All they have to do is send a simple text in order to pay it in. Companies are even trying to create an alternative service that are as simple and as swift as this service is due to its enormous popularity.

On the other hand, there are other advantages to mobile deposits that nobody really talks about. The biggest of them is security. For some reason, mobile deposits have gained the reputation of not being safe whatsoever. This is probably due to the fact that mobile deposits don’t require things like a username, pass code or PIN in order to use. Either way, it couldn’t be further from the truth. Mobile deposits are perfectly safe. Not only that, but we’re going to give you three reasons today as to why mobile deposits are the safest form of payment there is at a mobile casino.


Properly Regulated

UK Gambling CommissionOnce, mobile deposits were regarded as the outsiders of the online gambling industry, and to an extent that’s true. They were originally built to be used to update subscriptions to online magazines and the like. The process wasn’t built with online gamblers in mind. They adopted it all the same, however, and since then it’s been seen as a seedy, underhanded way of making payment — unregulated and unlawful.

The truth is, mobile deposits are very heavily regulated. No less than three governing bodies keep an eye on mobile transactions like these in order to ensure that none of them are doing any underhanded deals. These bodies include the Association of Interaction Media and Micropayments, the Phone-Paid Services Authority, and Ofcom. That’s not even covering the UKGC or other gambling-related organisations that maintain the peace. In other words, anyone who says mobile deposits aren’t regulated is seriously misinformed.

Physical Limitations

pay by mobileThe primary reason for guaranteed safety with your money, on the other hand, comes from the physical barriers players encounter when making said payments. E-wallets and credit cards can always be hacked or stolen and since sensitive information is stored on both this proves to be a massive disadvantage. Mobile deposits require no such information in order to operate. You can simply text the amount using your phone number and that is all it takes.

A one-time confirmation code gets sent to your phone every time you want to make a mobile deposit. Once it’s used, it can never be used again so the payment of that moment is secure. Any potential thieves or hackers need to work very hard in order to get a hold of your money. The first step would be to actually have your phone in their hand and we all know how unlikely that will be. In short, it’s almost impossible for your money to be taken from you.

Guaranteed Privacy

bitcoin anonymousFinally, mobile deposits are secure for their tendency to value customer privacy above all else. It’s often overlooked as it’s so obvious but, unlike e-wallets and credit cards, there is no need to use private information in order to make a payment. Literally all it takes is your phone number and that is it.

Mobile deposits are no threat to privacy and that is how it should remain. Hell, most of the time you don’t even need a bank account to use it. If you user pay-as-you-go as your tariff plan then all the better. These are the main reasons why mobile deposits are the securest payment method you can use.

Spinit Casino Review — The Best Site For Microgaming

spinit-logoIf the title of this casino doesn’t make it obvious enough for you, Spinit is a casino that revolved largely around slots, particularly video slots. And it has a lot of them… Many of Spinit’s competitors might even be envious of the amount they have. But it isn’t just the quantity of their content that makes Spinit such an awesome operator. The customer service and overall design quality make it something truly special.

The site feels young and fresh, as if it was designed by young gamblers, for younger gamblers. A lot of mobile casinos today have the tendency to be repetitive and designed by people who are slightly out of touch with the current market. With bouncing animated characters and a nice colour palette, its easy to see why this appeals to

Spinit has a lot of games. Like, a lot of games. With over 1,200 for you to peruse over, selecting your first game to play can be a rather difficult task. Fortunately, you’ll have plenty of time to choose and many of Spinit’s promotions will help you on your way. But we’ll get to that in a moment.

The casino has a speciality when it comes to slots, as we’ve already made clear, and the majority of those slots come from Microgaming. In fact, there are so many Microgaming titles that it’s the place to go to for Microgaming fans. Other software developer fans need not feel excluded, though. NetEnt, NYX Gaming, Play ‘N Go, Quickspin and Evolution Gaming are all found on the site.

Slots are not the only thing that Spinit does. They also have a live casino with table games and roulette as well as progressive jackpots. All games are divided into easily searchable categories so players will never feel lost on this website.

 

Bonuses And Promotions

Spinit might not have the most extensive list of promotions and bonuses but the few it does have offer enough variety that it does not feel dry or underwhelming. The first promotion you need to take on board is the fist, full blown welcome package of up to £1,000 and 200 extra spins. The promotion is split into four parts, the first being automatic, the rest needing a deposit to work. Wagering requirements are 40x. Here are the bonus codes needed:

  • On your 1st deposit,  get up to 100% of £200 plus 200 extra spins (automatic)
  • On your 2nd deposit, get up to 50% of £200 (code: WSPINIT2)
  • On your 3rd deposit, get up to 25% of £300 (code: WSPINIT3)
  • On your 4th deposit, get up to £300 (code: WSPINIT4)

Apart from the welcome bonus, which is already pretty rewarding, the rest of the promotions available at Spinit are mainly weekly stuff that involve more deposit match bonuses, reload bonuses and extra spins. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday is the best days to log on for this, by the way.

 

Banking

neteller logo

Banking is a simple matter at Spinit. All the methods included are:  Trustly, Zimpler, Skirll, Neteller and Paysafecard, as well as the VISA/Mastercard options. The minimum deposit limit  is £10. Withdrawals are between £10 and £5,000. Once you’re a registered member of the site, you will find that your funds will appear within a day or two after said withdrawal. Not bad!

 

Who Should Play At Spinit?

Honestly, we can’t find much wrong with Spinit. It’s a good operator that’s trustworthy and has a strong foundation of good customer service, great games and even better banking. The promotions only add to the experience and it is, overall, excellent. If you’re a Microgaming fan in particular, then you will doubtlessly have a blast.

Twin Spin Deluxe, as the name suggests, is the sequel to the highly successful Twin Spin, yet although some of the original features remain, new twists allow this slot to stand as an impressive slot in it’s own right. Read on to see what you can expect from Twin Spin Deluxe, including tips on how to win big and how to trigger bonus features.

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of Twin Spin Deluxe is that the game is played over six reels, instead of the traditional five. This is because Twin Spin Deluxe boasts a cluster pays mechanism, meaning that wins will be awarded when players create a ‘cluster’ of nine or more of the same symbols, rather than using traditional paylines.

This is a feature that NetEnt have been particularly keen on using recently, with slots such as The Legend of Shangri La and Finn and the Swirly Spin both using a similar design. For the uninitiated, however, cluster pays games can seem more difficult to win at first. Finding nine of the same symbol in adjacent positions may sound like a challenge, but it’s much easier than it seems and can leave you with huge base game wins.

Although there are significant differences in gameplay between Twin Spin Deluxe and the original Twin Spin title, they do share a similar look and feel. Players can expect bright, retro graphics with the reels hanging against flashing lights and symbols including bars, cherries and sevens. The game’s highest paying symbol is the blue gem and this can reward players with a huge 1,000x their wager.

Twin Spin Deluxe uses the latest HTML5 technology to ensure that gameplay is flawless across all devices. Furthermore, as the game has a healthy RTP of 96.31%, a medium volatility, and is playable from as little as 10p a spin, we’d say it’s suitable for almost every type of player.

 

Bonus Features

Unlike a lot of NetEnt slots, Twin Spin Deluxe isn’t actually that feature-heavy. Instead, the brand have enhanced the slot with just one bonus feature, but the good news is that this is satisfyingly rewarding so you won’t feel like there’s anything missing.

In Twin Spin Deluxe NetEnt have brought back the much loved ‘twin-reel’ feature from the original Twin Spin slot. This means that on every spin, two reels will lock together and spin in unison, displaying the same symbols. Whilst the slot spins, these linked reels can also expand to up to six identical reels, which is a great chance for players to create huge clusters of symbols and therefore huge wins.

Performance

Although Twin Spin Deluxe doesn’t include the kind of flashy animations and visually impressive bonus features that we’ve come to expect from NetEnt slots, the simple gameplay actually means that players can enjoy a much faster and exhilarating experience. The quick-fire nature of the game means that if you hit a winning streak you can expect things to really get going, and the game’s soundtrack helps to boost excitement as it’s techno-inspired sound keeps the pace quite nicely.

Unique Feature

For us, Twin Spin Deluxe is obviously at it’s best when the twin-reel feature kicks in over multiple reels. However, whilst this is definitely lucrative and entertaining, we’d actually go as far as to say that Twin Spin Deluxe’s unique feature is the lack of bonuses.

NetEnt have always enjoyed success when they’ve created more minimal games. Starburst, the software developer’s most popular game ever, stands as testament to this and we do hope Twin Spin Deluxe garners the same attention. Whilst simplistic games can often feel a little boring, they do have mass appeal as they’re suitable for both newbies and seasoned players, and they’re perfect for a quick spin when you don’t want to commit to spending too long at the casino.

 

Last words…

In our eyes, Twin Spin Deluxe is the perfect game for NetEnt to have started the year off with, as we think it stands as a great example of their design prowess. As we’ve said numerous times throughout this review, it’s not the most innovative title the brand have ever produced, but this doesn’t make it any less charming. Both the cluster pays mechanism and the twin-reel feature make the game more rewarding than it may seem at first, but Twin Spin Deluxe’s appeal all lies in the beautiful graphics and straightforward, yet exciting, gameplay. We think it’s definitely a slot which will put a smile on your face, so why not try it out for yourself?
