21Bets Casino Review
21 Bets is one of many new names who are going to be vying for the attention of the online casino playing audience in 2018. Having already reconsidered its original style and undergone something of a refurb, it is clear quickly that this is a site that is prepared to fight tooth and nail to succeed.
This is the necessary attitude to stay afloat, and maybe even flourish in the busy world of online casinos, but it takes more than that. Grit and determination are great, but on their own, as we’ve seen before, they’re not enough. There’s also the necessity for knowledge, the intelligence and experience to know what it is that the iGaming world is looking for, and to be able to provide that.
21 Bets, on the surface, seems capable of this. A site that is built to be usable by desktop, mobile, and tablet players, nobody is going to feel ignored here, and that’s a great start. Add to that a nice welcome bonus and a growing reputation for excellent customer service (including a live chat option, which always helps) and 21 Bets has all the potential in the world.
However, can this site convert that potential into success? Or is this going to be yet another case of what might have been?
Design and theme
Many new sites that hit the market try and do too much in terms of their design, creating messy looking sites that are difficult to navigate and, frankly, unpleasant to look at.
21 Bets is clearly aware of this issue, and has instead going for a simple, yet effective approach with limited design work, creating an old-school tone to a site that feels very modern to use, which is a pleasant contrast that should appeal to many players.
A purple and yellow colour scheme was a risk, and may even be a little too much for some, but the subtlety of the design, which has opted for blocks of colour and a white background in the middle of the site, means that the colour scheme is easier to handle than one may expect.
Navigation is well set out here, with thumbnails allowing for instant access to games from the homepage, and the ability to switch these thumbnails based on game categories so you can find exactly what you’re looking for with limited effort.
There’s more breathtaking designs out there, that is undeniable, but 21 Bets does what it has to, and creates a design that will appeal to players who are more interested in games than they are in bells and whistles.
Looking great is one thing, but if you’re really going to make an impact on the online casino world, you need to do it with your games collection, and 21 Bets is ready to do just that.
With a plethora of titles in various game categories coming from the likes of 1X2 Network, Blueprint Gaming, ELK Studios, Extreme Live Gaming, Gamevy, Genesis Gaming, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, NYX Gaming, and Thunderkick this site is likely to impress, especially when it comes to new players to the scene.
For the more seasoned veteran, however, this may still not feel like enough. Having slots, live dealer games, traditional casino titles, and scratchcards is great, but the list of software developers above is noticeably shorter than that at other online casinos, and this is likely to put some players off.
This is an issue that can be fixed, and we hope that 21 Bets adds a few more names to the list soon, because if it does, this site could become genuinely competitive.
