Spin Genie Review
When Spin Genie launched in 2014 it boasted "fun, friends and adventure". Since then it's bumbled along whilst picking up and then dropping Louie Spence along the way. It's also dropped the adventure aspect of it's initial launch. Back then you could help The Spin Genie through various loyalty levels which generated rewards. In 2018, Spin Genie simply offers plenty of slots and games for the discerning visitor.
When Spin Genie originally launched players were encouraged to "Join The Adventure". This adventure came in the shape of wagering and moving up various levels. The further up the levels you go the more bonuses and prizes await you. This gamefication element, similar to that established at Bingo Godz, didn't last long. More recently the site has had a makeover and now has a very simplistic and basic approach to slots.
Along with adopting this simplistic approach, Spin Genie have also dropped their no deposit welcome offer. Occasionally it may make a short return but with the current bonus climate very unlikely. Instead new players are welcomed with a 100% first deposit bonus up to £50. This bonus comes with a fixed x50 wagering term. A second deposit bonus of 20 spins is also available. Terms also apply.
Games wise there are plenty of slots to choose from at Spin Genie. These include Rainbrew, Hold The Safe, Irish Riches, Electric Tiger, Caravan to Cairo, Volts & Bolts, Mirror Mirror and Rainbow Riches. These games are joined by various Slingo games and slots. Bar X XL, Slingo Love Island, Britain's Got Talent Slingo, Slingo Riches, Dancing On Ice, Pay Of The Dead and The Price Is Right are just some of the "in-house" titles available.
When Spin Genie first launched we lamented the lack of exclusive games. Then Slingo came along as did a mix of Gaming Realm slots. It's kind of ironic that these exclusives are now being hosted on Dragonfish casinos - thereby negating the exclusivity that Spin Genie et al finally achieved. Blackjack and roulette players will find a selection of games to enjoy at Spin Genie. There's also live casino games including Dream Catcher and Casino Holdem. Video poker players are catered for with a few options, but these are listed under 'casino'.
Spin Genie did actually launch it's own bingo channel. However, this didn't last long and a new option - Slingo Boom - arrived instead. This multiplayer version of the slots/bingo game that is Slingo however didn't prick the bingo or slot player's imaginations. Sadly Slingo Boom is no longer available for players on any Gaming Realms brand.
If you like regular promotions then Spin Genie is going to disappoint. The same applies if loyalty rewards are important to you. Promos are few and far betweeen whilst the VIP scheme is purely for VIPs. Average players will not be rewarded for their loyalty. Spin Genie does have a Facebook presence, but this hasn't been updated since December 2018.
Spin Genie falls into the category of sites you think will be big, but just fail to make it. Despite it's media coverage, Louis Spence and countless promotions it's slipped behind sister brands like The X Factor Games, Love Island Games and Slingo.com. The slot options are good though and you'll not be disappointed if you sign up.
