Spin Genie Casino has been around since 2014. But while a newer casino, it has managed to get a fairly large following in a short period of time. It was launched by Bear Group LTD Casinos and has a decent reputation in the industry. In this review we’ll take a look at whether or not Spin Genie Casino has earned that reputation.
As you would expect from the name Spin Genie Casino, the website is mostly dedicated to slot machines. And that’s tied to their loyalty program as well. Every time you spin the reels, you get points that move you up the levels they have decided upon. You’ll also get rewards when you get to a new level. The SpinGenie Casino loyalty program is certainly one of the main reasons why the casino has done so well.
Spin Genie does not have an app for either iOS or Android. Instead they have modified their games so that if you use your browser on your phone, the games will display perfectly. This is a different tactic than other casinos have employed, but it seems to work well for Spin Genie Casino.
Bonanza Club opinion
Is Spin Genie a weirdo or the future of online gaming? Only time will tell. They’ve switched over to a system where to find out about and claim most promotions, you have to follow them on Facebook. There are good promotions located there, but you have to be a Facebook user and have to be willing to let people know on Facebook that you follow Spin Genie and login a lot, too. This is probably the future of gaming in our research, so we won’t give them too much of a hard time about that.
What we will give them a hard time about is their welcome bonus. It’s quite simply not up to what most casinos are offering. We guess that because of their stellar reputation, they figure they can let the welcome bonus slide.
We aren’t so sure and feel that our users can find much better welcome offers than those offered by Spin Genie.
Spin Genie has a bunch of seasonal promotions they launch with some regularity. The one that is evergreen is that you’ll get 20 free spins when you make your second deposit. Most of the rest of their promotions are tied to Facebook. Follow them on Facebook and they will release bonus codes there. Enter the bonus codes to activate the promotion.
Most of the Facebook promotions are either for free spins on specific games, or for matching funds on future deposits. While making you go to Facebook may seem at first to be a bit onerous simply to get bonuses, it is certainly where the industry is going. If nothing else, it allows you one place to go to find out what Spin Genie Casino has to offer.
We suspect many other casinos will be heading in this direction in the near future. Might as well embrace it now while it’s there. Of course, if you are not a member of Facebook, this will be a challenge.
When you sign up, make your first deposit and use your Spin Genie login, you will get matching funds up to £100. That seems pretty slim to us – particularly when you realize you have to play through the money 50 times before you can claim it. You also only have seven days to play through the money.
Given that the industry standard is that you have to play through the money 35 times and some casinos only make you play it through 20 times, 50 times seems like a lot to ask for.
You don’t get any free spins from your first deposit – Spin Genie Casino makes you wait for your second deposit to get those.
Overall we feel like Spin Genie could have put a lot more effort into their welcome bonus. As it stands it’s just not up to what the rest of the casino industry has to offer. Buyer beware indeed.
If you sign up to follow Spin Genie, login on Facebook, where there will quite regularly be offers of free spins. You’ll have to use the bonus code they give you. Also, each free spin offer has different terms and conditions. You should read all of them before you take Spin Genie up on any free spin offers.
Games and game providers
Here is the reason why Spin Genie has garnered so much market share: their games! They quite honestly have one of the biggest libraries of online slot machines available anywhere. With thousands of titles to choose from, if you’ve ever played a game before you have a 99% chance of finding it on this casino’s website. All of the big time providers are represented from NetEnt to Red Tiger to Big Time Gaming. They really do have the slots nailed down tight, and after using your Spin Genie login you will have access to them all.
You can easily search through Spin Genie’s games until you find one that suits you. Whether that be a video slot machine, their live casino, their instant win or table games, they have it here. They also have featured games to let people see the new trends and a special section for new games. They really do make it as easy as possible to find a game you want to place a bet on.
Spin Genie has their Live Casino provided by NetEnt. Again, we consider this a wise choice. NetEnt is known far and wide as one of the best providers of live casino games. You are transported right into the casino and can chat with the dealer and other players. Games range from variations of blackjack and roulette as well as baccarat and newer trendier games.
So yeah Spin Genie really does have it all when it comes to games. From online slots to their live casino they have you covered. As we noted before this is probably responsible for Spin Genie’s success. Whether you want to play Mega Moolah or Megaways or go onto The Book of Dead, your online slot machine can be found here. Want to play roulette and feel like you are really in a casino, Spin Genie has you covered. They have really made an effort here and that effort should be recognized.
When it comes to non live casino table games, once you use your Spin Genie login the casino has also put some work into that area. Blackjack, roulette and video poker are all well represented. As are variations of all of those games. They’ve clearly put a ton of thought into what they offer and we have to respect that.
They also have a ton of bingo games. The only other casino we’ve seem come close to the amount of bingo offered here is Virgin Games. You have a ton of bingo games to play as well, including 90 ball and 75 ball versions.
Overall we have no problem at all with the variety of games offered by Spin Genie.
It’s curious how, after you login, Spin Genie accepts and allows you to withdraw money. You have to use Visa or MasterCard. You can’t do a bank transfer. You can’t use any of the popular e-wallets. You also have to make your deposit or withdrawal in British. That can be a nightmare for members of the EU.
Deposits – like at most casinos – are instant. Give them your credit card details and you will be able to play. You can also set up limits as to how much you can deposit. That starts out at £10 per day and has a maximum cap at £20,000 per day.
Withdrawals have a minimum of £20. That’s higher than the casinos that let you take out £10 but isn’t bad. Their monthly limit on withdrawals is £10,000 a month – which would make things interesting if you won a £3 million jackpot. It takes the casino 48 hours to process your withdrawal. After that it’s up to your credit card which can take as long as five days.
Well, if a ton of games is what you want Spin Genie is certainly the place to go. If you like a game odds are they’ve got it. And they are constantly adding new games.
That said, their lack of payment options and their limited withdrawal options are a bit of a turn off to us.
That said, we can easily see why they have become one of the biggest casinos around.
