Obvious Sean Connery jokes aside, it’s somewhat of a surprise that it has taken until 2017 for a site called Cashino to arrive on the online casino market. Everyone loves a good pun, okay, some people love a good pun, but there is no denying that Cashino is an excellent pun. Wordplay isn’t going to cut it by itself though, cracking the online casino market is harder in 2017 than it has ever been before, and it was never easy, so Cashino has quite an uphill climb ahead of it.
There’s a cyber graveyard dedicated to sites that arrived on the market, wide-eyed and optimistic, only to fall by the wayside, unable to compete with the huge names of the industry that have been cementing their reputation, and their player base, for decades. Like in any busy market, there is a large portion of good fortune necessary to catch the attention of players, but there’s also a lot of hard work that has to go into it.
Content is important, as is customer service, and a great image, and that’s just the obvious. So, does Cashino have what it takes to have a chance of becoming a household name in the industry or is this just another new online casino that is destined for mediocrity at best?
Design and theme
First impressions are important, that’s what they say, and it is rarely truer than in the online casino market, where a bad look will turn players away before they even have time to check out what a site has to offer. Cashino doesn’t exactly capture the imagination immediately, but there is something about the simple, games focused design of this site that is genuinely likeable.
With site after site opting for increasingly complex themes to attempt to stand out from the pack, there is something very refreshing about Cashino’s attitude. Essentially, this is an attractive site, with a simple blue colour scheme and a basic logo, with thumbnails of various sizes not only allowing instant access to a plethora of the site’s most popular games, but also providing the majority of the colour and style within the design. This is a clever choice, because it immediately puts the games to the forefront, ensuring that the content on offer is the very first thing you notice upon arrival at the Cashino site.
All that needs to be true now, is that the games must be good enough to ensure this was the right choice.
There was a time when a new site would be forgiven for not offering games from many software developers, with players understanding that many sites choose to build up their portfolio of games over time, but those days are over. With the level of competition now present in the market, a site has to hit the ground running, and with titles from Blueprint Gaming, edict egaming, iSoftBet, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive, Cashino hasn’t quite managed to do that. The lack of heavy hitters such as IGT, Microgaming, NetEnt, NextGen, and many more, as well as up and comers like Yggdrasil, leaves Cashino looking a little bare when it comes to gaming options.
That isn’t to say there aren’t good games here, the developers providing them are all excellent, there just isn’t quite enough of them, and that makes Cashino far less likely to be able to stand up against established sites that offer titles 10 or 20 different developers.
Cashino has a nice look to it, and putting the games as the focus is definitely sensible, but when the games can’t back that up, it feels like a bit of a waste of an opportunity.
