As a company run by BGO Entertainment – with a hugely successful casino under that name – we will naturally be expecting big things from Power Spins. They’re a relatively new outfit, but that doesn’t stop them offering a tasty bonus and diverse range of free spin-related bonus options.
So – will they be able to stand up to the quality of BGO Casino? There’s only one way to find out; let’s dive in!
Slots Selection and Software
The overwhelming majority of games at Power Spins come in the form of slots, which is hardly surprising given the casino’s name. There are hundreds in total, with the majority supplied by Netent, one of the world’s leading casino software developers.
Among the most popular slots are classics like Twin Spin, Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest and Aloha! Cluster Pays. These are the kind of slots Netent (and consequently Power Spins) are all about: great graphics, flawless gameplay and lucrative payouts. There are other software providers involved, however, including Playtech. In reality, however, the most popular video slots are Netent’s own since, simply, they make the best ones!
Now here’s where Playtech steps up to the plate – huge, meaty progressive slots where the few lucky winners leave with hundreds of thousands, if not millions of pounds in the bank. These are truly gigantic slots, and include the likes of Gladiator and Jackpot Giant, each of which have recently been won for staggering sums. If you’re interested in trying for the truly magnificent wins, then the progressives at Power Spins are as good a place to start as anywhere!
Everything is instant play, which most players will be delighted to hear. Simply scroll through the list of games (there’s bright thumbnail for each of them) and click on the game you want to play. You’ll have two options:
- Play for free – Free slots games mean that you can get used to the slot and have fun without investing your own cash. These are great for new players who aren’t quite sure how slots operate.
- Play for real – Exactly what it sounds like: if you have some cash in the bank, use it and get spinning!
The Power Spins web app is browser-based, which means you simply visit the website as normal to get access from your smartphone or tablet. It runs super quickly, but scarcely a third of the desktop games are available and it’s not quite as intuitive as the mobile site. That said, it does work, and if you want to play mobile on the go, you can quite easily.
Customer support is found seriously wanting at Power Spins, despite its relative success in other areas. The primary reason is that you can only contact the casino through email. In an age where live chat is gradually replacing phone support, it’s crazy to think that a modern casino can offer neither option.
The second problem is that support isn’t even available 24/7: in today’s online casino industry, this could prove a killer blow for Power Spins if they don’t sort it out soon.
Being a fairly well-established brand, Power Spins can offer banking options via bank cards and e-wallets, PayPal and PaySafeCard. These cover pretty much all the normal payment methods, so they shouldn’t be alienating too many players!
By contrast, payments can only be processed in GBP – not a problem for us Brits, but players from other nations usually prefer handling banking in their native currency. There are no banking fees that Power Spins make us aware of, but note that they can charge a £10 “dormancy fee” if your account becomes highly inactive while funded.
All in all, while Power Spins is an impressive outfit in some areas, it just isn’t strong enough (yet) to compete with the main players on the online casino circuit. Their banking and customer support structure lets them down, but the quality of their bonuses, the slots selection and engaging design of their website are all standout positives.
Given a little more time, we can probably expect big things from Power Spins. Fingers crossed!
