Play UK Review
So, it’s another Nektan site, and at this point, we’ve all come to know what to expect from that.
With countless sites being released, on a monthly basis if not more frequently, Nektan have been creating clone after clone after clone.
With nothing to tell between pretty much any site on the network, we’d almost given up on hoping for one site that just felt different to the rest, and then Play UK arrived on the scene.
Finally stepping away from the template that we all got bored of a long time ago, Play UK genuinely feels like a separate entity from its network brothers and sisters, which is incredibly refreshing.
However, before we go on commending the fact that Nektan have eventually done something different here, there’s one aspect that hasn’t changed.
Go onto any other browser on your desktop while you have the Play UK site open, and it will quite aggressively call you back through messages in the tab, which is not only irritating, it also runs the risk of being genuinely damaging.
The industry is becoming increasingly focused on protecting vulnerable gamblers, and one can’t help but assume that at some point, Nektan will be forced to remove this badly thought out addition from their site, it would be nice to see them do it themselves before they are told to, but we’ll see.
Aside from that one heavy criticism though, Play UK does look like a genuinely strong step in the right direction for Nektan, but is it?
Design and theme
While the design is far from exciting here, with a model that looks like she’d rather be anywhere else taking centre stage in the banner across the top of the page, which also advertises the (at the time of writing) impressive welcome bonus.
As you scroll down the page however, things do get better in a hurry. A well put together white and yellow colour scheme provides the background, while a host of symmetrical thumbnails provides instant access to popular games.
Not only does this latter touch assist with ease of navigation, which is always a plus, it also creates the lion’s share of the design, with the thumbnails themselves, and the colourful designs within them, bringing the cite to life and contrasting nicely with the simple backdrop.
It’s been a long time coming, and it’s far from perfect, but this is a genuinely good site design from Nektan, and Play UK is a sign of what this operator is capable of if they put a little bit of extra effort in, and long may that continue!
It would be a shame if Play UK let itself down on the games selection, but Nektan has never been one to do that, and that isn’t changing here.
With titles coming from 1X2 Network, Aristocrat Gaming, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Core Gaming, edict egaming, ELK Studios, Evolution, Extreme Live Gaming, Felt, Gamevy, IGT, IWG, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Realistic Games, Red Tiger Gaming, SG Digital, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive, as well as Nektan proprietary games, there’s a huge amount of choice available here.
Whether you are a desktop, mobile, or tablet player, you will find slots, table and card games, live dealer options, and much more available here, so whatever you’re into, Play UK has you covered.
It would be easy to say “it’s about time” here, but we like to be positive as often as we can be, so instead of criticising what came before, we’re instead going to focus on this positive step for Nektan, here’s to hoping for more online casinos from the operator that are of the same quality, or even better, than Play UK.
