The X Factor Games Review
Following the successful conversion of Deal Or No Deal from quiz show to gambling entity it was inevitable other TV shows would be tested. Surprisingly one such show was The X Factor which spawned slots and bingo games. It's since gone on have it's own dedicated site - The X Factor Games - but would Simon Cowell give it a "yes"?
The X Factor Games is on the same platform - and from the same folks - who developed Slingo.com. The website is basic with a slight nod to the X Factor X in the background and not much else to associate it with the TV show. It's counterpart, Britain's Got Talent Games, has had a recent makeover and it's safe to say that The X Factor Games is in need of the same.
Up until recently new players could get a no deposit bonus at The X Factor Games. This has now ended but first time depositors can get a 100% matched bonus up to £50. Terms apply including wagering requirements of x50 for slots and x50 for slingo games. A second deposit bonus of 20 spins is also on offer but with wagering of x30 on both slots and slingo.
As you may have guessed, The X Factor Games offers players access to a wide selection of slots and slingo games. In addition there's also table games and live casino. The usual suspects feature amongst the popular slots. These inclide Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Twin Spin, Cleopatra and Da Vinci's Diamonds.
The X Factor Slingo
If you're visiting The X Factor Games then perhaps you want to play X Factor themed slots? However there's limited options. There's the Slingo X Factor game that's basically Slingo with a different look and a handful of scratchcards. There's no slot to play nor anything that's exclusive to the site.
Given that Deal Or No Deal has pretty much been appended to everything, including roulette and blackjack, it would seem an idea to do the same for The X Factor. As is players have to "make do" with standard vesions of blackjack, roulette, bacarrat, casino hold'em and caribbean stud poker. All these games are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop.
Players are advised to check out The X Factor Games' Facebook page for exclusive competitions where the can win spins, bonuses, cash prizes and vouchers. This sounds great but the page hasn't been updated since Christmas 2018. The brand does have a Twitter page but has never bothered to use it!
On the plus side, if you login then you occasionally find bonus spin offers. In addition the site has - along with sister brands - ran some exciting promotions for decent prizes such as iPhones and other tech. We'd still love to see some regular exclusive X Factor promotions.
The X Factor Games offers access to some of the best slots and table games. However it is limited when it comes to it's theme. The brand is also limited when it comes to depositing options as only offers debit/credit card facilities plus a pay by mobile option. Other casino brands offer Paypal, Neteller, Paysafecard etc.
If The X Factor Games does get a makeover - as BGT Games has - then this would be good for the site. Like the TV show it all feels a bit stale and "we've seen it all before". Simon Cowell has cancelled this year's series to revamp the brand - the same approach would be useful here too.
