In turn withholding marketing payments. This review of Starspins Casino has been left on CasinoRankings.com for historical purposes. All and any links that may remain on CR now redirect to an CR recommended online casino.
Starspins Casino – Historical Review – 25th June 2018
Starspins Casino refers to itself as a 100% Slots Site or as ‘The Home of Slots’, so at the end of June 2018, CasinoRankings.com decided to see for ourselves how true this assertion rang true.
First off and before we get into the meat of this review of Starspins Casino, if you hail from the USA, then unfortunately Starspins is not for you. As the casino does not accept US players. Fear not though, as we have an ever growing number of US Casino Reviews you can avail yourself of here on CR.
Ok, now that is out of the way, lets take a detailed look at Starspins and see if it meets the standard when it comes to being listed on CasinoRankings.com. Starspins Casino forms part of the JackpotJoy Group who are responsible for those intensely annoying bingo adverts that feature Barbara Windsor. But don’t worry we won’t hold that against them LOL!
Jackpotjoy being owned by software developers Gamesys, who number the Virgin Games site among their portfolio of gaming brands.
Our first impression upon entering the site is that the site for the casino is very dark, not being particular fans of websites on a black background. It is akin somewhat to the Spinal Tap album, the name of which I will not mention in this review!
So, unfortunately not the best of starts, but hardly a deal breaker, lets actually see what the casino has to offer and more importantly how it treats you, it’s customers and players!
Lets tackle the most important aspect of the casino and what it purports to be first off by looking at the games offered. Being the self professed ‘Home of Slots’ lets see exactly what starspins slots are on offer at the casino.Starspins Slots
A quick list of the games featured on the site of Starspins ( See Above ) and I counted a grand total of 201 slot games to choose from. These include IGT Slots such as Cleopatra, WMS Slots ala Bruce Lee and games from NetEnt.
Too be honest I was expecting more from the Starspins Slots seeing as after all it professes to be a 100% slot site. But to be fair, the games available tick the boxes for me, so at least I have something to ‘work’ with which I can use for the purposes of this review!
There is no download client for the casino, which is fine and dandy by me, as most browser based casinos are just as good as those casinos which offer a dedicated casino client.
The slots load quickly and perform as should be expected and all in all it was a unremarkable yet standard experience playing the few games I tried out.
Registering an Account
Opening and registering a player account at Starspins is a painless process, as should indeed be the case. However, upon entering your details, the casino expects you to make a deposit before allowing you back to the Starspins casino lobby. On this same page you are able to specify your deposit limits, whether they be monthly, weekly or daily.
Now this is actually an area that lets the casino down somewhat, as the minimum amount allowed is £200. I was unable to specify my own chosen amount, which in this instance was going to be £50. This is an area the casino really needs to look at and sort out.
