Electric Spins Review
Electric Spins actually started life as Island Jackpots which originally was called. Shanghai Spins. However the owners - Tau Gaming - decided to make changes to the name. We're not quite sure why but fundamentally it's exactly the same site albeit with a different look and name. It's still powered by Dragonfish and offers players access to over 500 slots including progressive jackpot games.
Introducing Electric Spins
As is standard for most Tau Gaming brands, Electric Spins is a simply designed site. It's set up to work on mobile, tablet and desktop with no app required to play. The homepage welcomes you with a mobile phone featuring the Starburst slot. Electricity is symbolised by the light streaks and background colours. It's quite an effect design and the minimal approach actually pays dividends. Scroll down and you do find quite a lot of the featured slots that are available to play at the site.
What Is The Welcome Offer At Electric Spins?
If you choose to sign up as a new player to Electric Spins then you'll be offered 25 spins on a featured slot when you deposit £10 using the code ELECTRIC. Winnings from the spins will be capped at £2.50 and credited as a bonus. Up until May 2020 Island Jackpots - the predecessor of this brand - was a no wagering casino so any wins from bonuses or spins were paid in cash. As of May 2020 it's now applying a x40 wagering term to wins from these spins.
Inside Electric Spins you'll find plenty of slots to play and most are accessible on mobile or tablet. No app is required! Among the games you can play are Irish Eyes, Starburst, Autumn Gold, Stampede, Birds On A Wire, Cleopatra, Guns N Roses, Aloha Cluster Pays, Davinci Diamonds and Black Widow. You can still play Fluffy Favourites and other Eyecon titles but these are publicised on the homepage! If you're a fan of Slingo then games such as Slingo Beserk are also available to play.
Do Electric Spins Offer Promotions?
Progressive jackpots were an important part of the Island Jackpots roster. The site offered a jackpot tracker tool that would supposedly send you an SMS notification when the progressive was about to pop. We suspect this was just a nice way of staying in touch with you and encouraging you to play. As we know from our own trackpots it's not easy to pinpoint when a jackpot will fall - if it was we'd be winning them! Unsurprisingly this has been discontinued at Electric Spins.
Don't expect to find too many promotions at Electric Spins. You will get offers of daily free spins provided you're a qualifying depositor and these spins come with a x40 wagering term. To qualify, players must deposit a minimum of £5 in the last 30 days and wager a minimum of £1 on any of the games. We would like to see a few tournaments or prize offers at the site, but it's not something we anticipate will ever materialise.
Should You Play At Electric Spins?
Overall, Electric Spins is a decent Dragonfish powered site to play slots, instant win games and progressive jackpots. We think is has a good selection for players, However the loss of the no wagering terms (back in Island Jackpot days) on bonuses is a disappointment. The biggest issue we have is that it doesn't offer anything above and beyond what you can find at other brands. Most certainly the site hasn't offered nothing unique in terms of promotions or games since it launched under it's original name.
Another consideration is that Electric Spins doesn't have any live casino or casino games. Additionally there's no bingo channel. The Jackpot Tracker as part of Island Jackpots we think was a gimmick as once you've logged into the site there's no mention of it. We're not sure why Tau have rebranded and relaunched Island Jackpots but we do like the new name and we do like the new design. Whether this is enough to spark new life into the site remains to be seen.
