Review of Spinit Casino
Spinit Casino is a mobile-oriented online betting site established by operator Genesis Global, who are also responsible for the generally well regarded Casino Cruise. The casino has a bright look and feel that doesn't take itself too seriously and it boasts of offering over 1200 games, while its tagline exhorts players to "dare to win it".
Software and game selection
Spinit Casino runs on a platform provided by EveryMatrix, which is a company that aggregates games from lots of different software supplier into one package that allows the casino operator to pick and choose which games to offer. This operator seems to have gone for the full enchilada which means there are more than 1200 games to pick from, including titles from Microgaming, Net Entertainment, Play'n Go, Lucky Streak, and NextGen Gaming. These developers have their games through a web-based, instant play platform that sees the games loaded through your internet browser. The overall presentation of the site is colourful and appealing, while the large game icons and liberal use of horizontal scrolling suggest that the site's designers had mobile browsers squarely in mind when designing this site.
The slot machine section makes up most of this library, with a huge variety of both licensed and original titles in the offering. There are also classic 3-reel slots on offer as well as progressive jackpots that offer millions of Euros in prizes at any given time. Although the name Spinit would lead you to believe that slots are the only game style on offer, the casino does have a full casino library that includes table games, video poker, and an assortment of parlour games. This is complimented by a full live dealer casino via Evolution Gaming that lets you participate in webcast versions of blackjack, roulette, and baccarat.
Unfortunately if you're browsing on a regular computer or if you have little or no experience playing at a bunch of different online casinos, this casino is probably not going to be for you. As mentioned above the site has obviously been designed primarily with mobile devices in mind and, as so often happens with designers jumping on the mobile bandwagon, they have degraded the experience for someone using a regular computer. On my average sized browser window I can see a grid of only 12 game logos and the only way to slice and dice the games is by categories corresponding to the game type such as slots, live, or table games. Thankfully there is a quick search box for those of us that know the names of hundreds of different slots, but if you're an inexperienced player that doesn't or you just want to browse the games, you are going to have to click (or swipe if you're on a mobile device as intended) across that small grid of visible games potentially 100 or more times to go through them all horizontally as scrolling down does nothing. Poor user interface design choices aside, more categories corresponding to things such as the themes of the games or even the game developers would make the site far more usable for all players as it would narrow down the list of games to smaller chunks for browsing.
Banking and Customer Support
The banking system at Spinit Casino is good, as is the norm with most casinos running on the EveryMatrix platform. There are a huge number of deposit and withdrawal options, and once your identity is verified you can expect e-wallet withdrawals to be paid in under 24 hours. It is not all rosy though, with the great withdrawal speeds offset by withdrawal limits of €5500 per week, although players classed as VIP by casino management are able to pull out more. The casino also has a policy that winnings in excess of €100,000 will be paid out in 10 equal instalments which will affect progressive jackpot winners, but not to the extent that we have seen at other casinos that place a hard limit on the amount paid out per month.
Customer support is available through email, telephone via various local numbers, and live chat. I found the staff fast to respond to requests for help via live chat. The staff were friendly and otherwise unremarkable in the assistance they sent my way.
Security, fairness, and responsible gaming
Spinit Casino takes the step of protecting player information by employing standard SSL encryption technology, which effectively scrambles player information so that it is unreadable to outside sources while in transit between you and the casino. All reliable casinos these days offer encryption of all data, so I'm happy to see Spinit taking this step to protect players. In accordance with UKGC regulations, the casino discloses the steps it takes to protect player funds from adverse events such as insolvency. In this case, similar to the majority of online casinos we have seen, they only meet the standards classed as "basic" by the UKGC. This level of protection is more or less equivalent to none at all as your funds are not protected from claim by creditors should the casino go out of business.
The casino's operator holds multiple licenses to run an online casino from authorities in the United Kingdom, Malta, and Curacao. As per usual with multi-provider casinos like this, the topic of fairness in game design is usually better addressed towards the game developers rather than the casino operator, who usually have no ability to alter the payouts. The majority of better developers supplying games to this casino have their games audited for fairness and their random number generators checked for conformance to measures of statistical randomness. However the casino itself does not disclose the theoretical or actual return of any of its games, nor does it publish any kind of audited payout data about its operations.
Responsible gaming has a dedicated page on the Spinit Casino webpage, which provides information on the topic of problem betting. Players can contact customer support in order to set betting and deposit limits on their account, and they can also self-exclude from the site if need be.
First and foremost, Spinit is a good casino run by a reliable operator that you can expect to pay you quickly when you win. However certain design choices mean that the site isn't as pleasant to use as a large number of other casinos that have a similar set of games. This one comes recommended, but only if you are a player that already knows the games they like and aren't much of a browser.
