7Spins Casino Review - USA Players Welcome - $2400 FREE
much animation is too much animation? The answer is, when it doesn’t
add much to the experience of visiting a site. That was my feeling on
the landing page of this site. The graphics were impressive, but they
also tended to slow down my somewhat older computer.
A site should aim to minimize the negatives of the visitor’s
experience, and no one would stay too long on a site that runs slow on
your computer. Also, the animation gave an impression of a video arcade
site instead on an online gambling site. Cars running on a race track,
a machine gun under a bold headline of ‘gangster,’ and funny looking
cartoon animals crawling across the screen. Certainly not amongst the
typical casino games.
If you are a veteran online casino game player, you will probably be
not too impressed with their promotional offer of a $2,400 bonus to new
members. Other sites offer far more. This offer alone would suggest to
a veteran that this site is on the lower end of the gaming food chain.
Prominently displayed on the upper half of the landing pages are four
big pictures running horizontally across the page. They are really nice
pictures (floating dollar bills, a card hand afire, a bucket of
champagne, etc.); you are just not sure what they represent. Only after
running my cursor across the picture did a text block appear that
indicates these were really menu items (representing tournaments,
winners, preview games, and promotions. Because of the heavy animation
load, my cursor actually had to linger awhile before the text block
You begin to get the idea that the designer of this website
over-thought the process. How many negatives does a visitor have to
endure before they simply bail out? I’m guessing only two or three.
The Home Page makes the claim that, on this site, the visitor gets the
opportunity of enjoying realistic sounds and graphics. I don’t doubt
that at all. It’s obvious that this site puts a premium on looking
pretty at the expense of all else.
Nowhere on the Home Page is there an indication of how many games are
available on the site. Clicking on the appropriate menu item takes you
to a page where there is a nice list of games made available, but you
know that you’ll probably need a high-powered machine to indulge
yourself. Even if you wanted to, this site does not offer the
opportunity to play without downloading their special software.
The internet has been around for quite some time and web surfers tend
to be far more sophisticated than many websites give them credit for. 7Spins Casino, on its Home Page, makes the claim that they’re “the leader of
the online gaming industry” and that they “provide players with amazing
casino features.” The problem is, the visitor’s experience screams
exactly the opposite of those nice words. And whose side do you think
the web surfer will come down on?
Many toy manufacturers, before they release a new toy in the market,
would bring in a group of randomly selected kids and ask their opinion
(would you play with this?) about the new toy. If the designers of this
site had taken that practice to heart, they could have created a far
more pleasurable web surfing experience.
