Velvet Slots Review
“A touch of class” is how this site describes itself, and with a name like Velvet Slots, they’re definitely in the right position to bring that touch of class to the online casino world.
That is not to say that this site is the first to take an elegant approach to a casino site, because it certainly isn’t, but it must be admitted, that most effort to bring that concept to life through this medium have been disappointing at best.
Launched in 2015, the aim of Velvet Slots was to bring together all the slot games that are available at various Dragonfish sites. This means that it’s easy to play all your favourite games from the Dragonfish network in one place, which is certainly a selling point for Velvet Slots.
But as we all know by now, it takes more than one USP to make a site successful in the highly competitive iGaming world, and even a site that appears to offer as much as velvet slots does, can ultimately be proven to not have what it takes.
So, what else does velvet Slots bring to ensure it makes a splash in the busy online gaming market?
Design and theme
With a name like Velvet Slots, you probably know before your first visit that you will be dealing with a colour scheme based heavily on dark reds.
That is exactly what you get as well, with the background consisting of a dark red velvet effect, and the main design of the page having an almost identical colour scheme, just without the touches of velvet to it.
It’s possible for a site to overdo the single colour scheme approach, and although Velvet Slots runs this risk, it manages to avoid falling into the trap, and instead puts forward a decadent design concept that perfectly matches the idea of the site, and its “A touch of class” motto.
There is nothing overly new about the general design here, aside from the colour scheme you’ve probably seen similar at other sites on the same network. However, there is a touch of the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ about Velvet Slots, navigation is simple, everything’s where it should be, all sections of the site are easy to find and the new tradition of having a few popular games available directly from the homepage is used within the design theme to great effect. All in all, this is a good-looking site.
When a site claims to bring all the available games from a network together, one would expect the titles to be supplied by a variety of software providers, and they are.
888, Amaya, Bally Technologies, Eyecon, IGT Interactive, NetEnt, NYX Gaming, OpenBet, PariPlay, SG Gaming, and Williams Interactive are all represented within the gaming options at Velvet Slots, giving players a huge amount of choice.
The main party piece here is clearly slot games, with classic such as Starburst, Cleopatra, and Rainbow Riches side by side with 2016 releases including Aloha! Cluster Pays, Fluffy Too, and Theme Park: Tickets of Fortune.
It’s not only slots that are on offer though, table and card game fans can enjoy a few forms of roulette and blackjack, and there’s also some instant win and scratchcard games on offer. Unfortunately, these game types are limited in their variety, making Velvet slots (as its name suggests, to be fair) a site aimed primarily at slot game lovers.
This is not a bad site, it’s close to being a very good one, a few more casino games and other gaming options and Velvet Slots could be very competitive.
