Game Options at Captain Spins
Captain Spins offers a huge range of casino games, neatly divided into various tabs on their Games homepage. Slots, Live Casino, Table Games, Scratch Cards and Jackpots are all divided out separately, which makes the variety seem all the greater.
The infinite scroll in Captain Spins' slots section is as close to infinite as you will find. With over 1,000 online slots available, ranging from favourites like Book of Dead and Starburst to cult classics like Beavis & Butthead, there's something here for everyone.
The range of software providers on offer is staggering too. Over 50 providers' slot games are available. Big dogs like NetEnt and Playtech are here, but we were happy to see many smaller software providers, such as 4theplayer and Skywind too.
At the time of review, there are over 80 Jackpot Slots available at Captain Spins. Mega Moolah and the newer Fortunium Gold Mega Moolah can be played here, with jackpots frequently hitting many millions.
Blueprint Gaming's range of jackpot slots which include the Naked Gun, Rainbow Gold and Diamond Jackpots among others make up quite a bit of the jackpot slot offering.
The range of table games at Captain Spins casino is small but select. The range of software providers can be seen here too, with NetEnt, Play'n GO, Relax Gaming and Iron Dog (among others) all providing various options for roulette, blackjack and baccarat. Multiple poker games can be found too, so while there's not a massive number of games available, there should still be enough to please everyone.
Live Dealer/Casino Games
As we're always happy to see, Evolution Gaming is the provider behind Captain Spins' Live Casino offering. Much like the table games selection, the number of games available might not blow you away, but the variety is there. Everything you would expect to find – from live roulette, live casino hold'em, live blackjack and game shows are all here. Being provided by Evolution means players are assured of a quality experience to boot.
Registration at Captain Spins
They couldn’t make the registration process and Captain Spins much easier. To set your account up takes just three quick steps. In those steps, players are asked to provide information like their name, date of birth, email address and home address. Once completed, a payment method can be added to your account.
As with all licenced online casinos, we were asked to provide some documents via email in order to verify our details. While this may be off-putting for some, it is a licencing obligation, and one which is a nice reminder that Captain Spins are fulfilling their requirements.
Deposits and withdrawals
Most of the popular payment methods are available to players at Captain Spins. Visa (debit only) and Mastercard is accepted as well as the more popular e-wallets like PayPal, Skrill and Neteller. Players can choose to deposit and withdraw via bank transfer if they wish, while paysafecard is also available, but only for depositing.
As you'd expect, deposits are processed instantly. Withdrawals typically take 2 to 5 working days, though e-wallets should be done within a day or two. The minimum deposit and withdrawal for all methods is €10, while the maximum varies depending on the method used.
Captain Spins’s User Experience
Captain Spins would be forgiven for having a pretty slow site, given the sheer volume of games it houses. That isn't the case though. Lobbies are neatly divided into sensible categories, while the infinite scroll found within each of them just adds to the speed.
If you're looking for a specific game, you can use the search function, or alternatively, casino games can be filtered by provider (of which there are tons!).
The hamburger button in the top left of the homepage grants access to information on games and promotions, while the account history section is very clean and easy to use too.
Captain Spins was clearly designed with mobile casino players in mind. The layout of the site is quick and easy to navigate, while you lose nothing in terms of speed or performance by playing on mobile.
Similarly, the full range of casino games is available on mobile, so there's no difference there either. It would have been nice to be able to download a dedicated app, but players can create a shortcut to their mobile device's homescreen for quick access. Perhaps an Android or iPhone app is in the pipeline, but it's not a massive issue not having one.
The layout is broadly similar to desktop, just on a smaller screen. The same search function and tabs are found on mobile, which make everything easy to find and quick to get to.
Captain Spins Software
It might be quicker to talk about the software providers not on offer at Captain Spins than to talk about the ones which aren’t! Over 50 casino game providers' games are available at Captain Spins. Slot games are covered by most of the powerhouses in the industry like NetEnt, Play'n GO and Microgaming as well as a multitude of smaller or newer software developers, while the live casino is powered by Evolution – the leader in their field.
