Now that the colder weather is upon us Tau Gaming have decided that it’s perhaps a good time to launch another slots brand. It’s called Arctic Spins and it uses the Nektan platform. You won’t get a frosty reception when you arrive at the site which is currently occupied by a polar bear. With The UKGC’s crackdown on cartoon imagery we’re not sure how long the bear will last – we’re pretty sure there’s a metaphor for global warming in there somewhere!
When you join Arctic Spins and deposit £10 you’ll be awarded 25 extra spins on Starburst. Make sure you use the bonus code ARCTIC when you deposit. Wins from your 25 spins are paid out as bonus and therefore will incur wagering terms that we believe are x30. It’s not very clear from the information on the website and we’d like to see more clarity in this regard.
Good Selection Of Slots
Once inside the site there’s a good range of slots to play. These can be found by provider – so for example if you’re a fan of Net Entertainment you can filter the lists to just show these games. We like this option a lot. Other providers on site include Aristocrat, Foxium, DC Comics, Microgaming, Nektan, NetEnt, Realistic Games, Elk Gaming, Blueprint and Scientific.
In terms of slot titles there’s the likes of Starburst, Baywatch, Superman, Justice League, Ghostbusters, Wolf Run, Jimi Hendrix, Aloha Cluster Pays, Spinata, Motorhead, Butterfly Staxx and Guns N Roses. All games are accessible on desktop, mobile and tablet plus some can be played in demo mode. At time of writing you don’t need to be registered but we anticipate this will change.
For those players who like table games there is a Live Casino at Arctic Spins although these are limited to roulette and blackjack plus a Golden Ball game. A small selection of instant win games such as Boss The Lotto and Wheel of Fortune complete the line-up.
Promotions are limited at Arctic Slots. We found no additional reload offers but there is a “new and exciting reward scheme” launching in December that will offer cashback, spins, bonuses and rewards to loyal players. However, access to this scheme is by invite only! The univited unfortunately don’t seem to get anything.
The Nektan slots network continues to expand but there has to come a point when players need something new served up to them. Arctic Spins isn’t a bad site but it doesn’t get the blood racing either. The range of slots is good, but there needs to be some level of exclusivity either in the curation of games or promotions department. New arrivals may also be disappointed with the welcome package and limited rewards programme – this though is reflective of changing times.
Arctic Spins won’t leave you cold but it’s not the hottest prospect either.
