The Online Casino Review
It took until 2018 for an online casino called The Online Casino to hit the market, which, when you think about it, is arguably one of the biggest surprises that the industry has ever offered up.
The fact that such a simple name for an online casino site comes from Nektan is perhaps less of a surprise, as this operator has been known for putting in the smallest possible amount of effort for a long time.
It has been a long wait for Nektan to do something different, after years of producing nothing but clones, with one online casino site after another that look the same, and offer the same content, there have been a couple of glimmers of hope in recent months that maybe Nektan is expanding its horizons a little.
With The Online Casino, there’s a definite possibility that Nektan have found a compromise, a way to make a simple design concept work instead of feeling unfinished or like minimal effort has been put into its creation.
Of course, we have felt optimistic about Nektan before, and it has almost always come back to bite us, so, hesitantly, let’s take a look at this newest offering from the prolific operator and see if it has the ability to live up to its potential.
Design and theme
This is a Nektan site, so you know what to expect in design, simple background image, basic logo, and that’s what you get here, but the difference with The Online Casino is that it feels intentional.
The logo doesn’t feel basic, it feels subtle, the background image is more epic than expected, and does a good job of balancing out the subdued tone of the colour scheme, which itself adds a professional and sleek tone to proceedings.
While we are not for a second claiming that this is a design concept that will change the world, it is a noticeable step up for Nektan and that’s something that needs to be commended, because it hasn’t happened in a long time.
The usual perks of a Nektan site are here too, mainly ease of navigation, as thumbnails allow quick access to many of the popular games the site has to offer, and a search box in the centre of the homepage means that if you know what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in no time.
As stated previously, there have been signs as of late that have suggested changes may be coming from Nektan, and in terms of design, it looks like The Online Casino may well be the first step in that direction.
Nektan have always offered an excellent array of games to players, while previously this has been the only redeeming feature of an otherwise lacklustre and unimpressive online casino site, at The Online Casino, it’s a strong way to maintain the games focused nature of the design.
With titles coming from 1X2 Network, Betdigital, Big Time Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Core Gaming, edict egaming, ELK Studios, Evolution, Extreme Live Gaming, Eyecon, Felt, Gamevy, IGT, IWG, Microgaming, Nektan, NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, Pragmatic Play, Realistic Games, Red Tiger Gaming, SG Digital, SG Gaming, Spin Games, Williams Interactive, and Yggdrasil, there’s no shortage of top class games here.
With video slots, jackpot slots, classic slots, table and card games, scratchcards, live dealer options, instant wins, and more, the range of games on offer here is undoubtedly impressive, and that goes a long way.
While The Online Casino may not seem like much in terms of an online casino, it looks good, it has got the tone right, and it offers great games, here’s hoping this is a new phase for Nektan.
