If you are looking for a way to be unique and original as an online casino site, then a theme based around space is perhaps not the way to do so.
But that being said, sometimes the familiar is comforting for players, and if this is what Playamo is going for, then they have undoubtedly nailed it.
However, there is one fairly unique aspect to Playamo, and that is the fact that it is fully compatible with bitcoin, and offers you the chance to learn and understand this online currency. Registration is also one of the quickest around, taking an average of just fifteen seconds.
The slogan ‘the best way to win’ is what Playamo is going with, and for a site that was only launched in 2016, this seems like quite a claim to start with. Does the content of the site do a good enough job to back up Playamo’s boast?
Design and theme
As alluded to earlier, the theme of this site is predominantly based on space, in that there is a star covered spacescape in the background of the site.
There’s also a stack of (presumably) alien characters that cover the homepage and follow you around the site, these cartoon like characters are quite fun, and certainly give the impression that Playamo is not a site that takes itself too seriously, which is something that will appeal to many players.
You will find 16 of the most popular games available at Playamo accessible directly from the homepage for speed of play, and the navigation is simple, allowing you to search games (either by scanning through the site or using the search bar), and read about promotions with ease.
This is a very good execution of an overused concept, which may mean that aesthetically, Playamo may be appealing to many players, but at the same time, it may simply be more of the same and create no excitement at all.
When coming in with a very basic and outdated theme, it is necessary that the games on offer do a lot to set a site apart from the pack, especially for one as newly released as Playamo.
There are only a tad over 200 games currently available at Playamo, but as a new site, it is very possible that this will increase heartily over the coming months. On the flipside, the site does offer games from a host of different providers, including Bally Technologies, Betsoft, Endorphina, Ezugi, Playson, and SoftSwiss, meaning that even though the choice is currently fairly limited at this point, there is still good variety amongst the gaming options.
Slots players will find a lot of games on this site that may be new to them. Lesser known providers providing lesser known games may seem like something that would work against a site, and maybe it does. But at the same time, the popular slots are available in a huge amount of casinos, by offering something different, Playamo is at least setting itself apart.
Table and card game fans will find roulette, poker, and blackjack in various forms. Again, the best know games may not be here, and the choice is fairly limited, but you should still find something to play here.
As a site in the earliest stages of life, Playamo clearly has a very long way to go. The theme definitely needs work, but that can be left to the side for now. There are simply not enough games yet, but by offering less available games, Playamo has built a very good foundation for itself, although it remains to be seen how this will be built upon.
