If you’re a regular reader, we’re sure you’ll have noticed the sudden influx of brand new casinos in 2015. The online gaming industry has been growing steadily for the past few years but, of late, there have been more new casinos than ever to choose from; each with their own branding, style and games selection, each with their own focus on bonuses or free spins or, for some, something altogether different. The face of our new casinos page has been changing on an almost weekly basis.
We like to be as selective as possible, however, so far from telling you about all the new casinos in 2016, we instead plan on shining the spotlight on only the best new casinos in 2016 (we like to think that’s an important difference!).
NEW CASINOS 2016
Just as we did in 2015- introducing our readers to a whole range of brand new casinos for 2016, we plan on doing exactly the same in 2016. While 2015 saw the tropical-themed Reel Island, steam-punk designed Joy Casino, and Medieval Jackpot Knights, arrive on our site, we have a whole selection of exciting new casinos lined up for the coming year.
CASINOS COMING SOON
We’re not even into 2016 just yet, so we don’t want to give too much away but, we can reveal that we are almost ready to introduce one brand new casino to the pages of Netentcasino in the New Year.
Our full review will be coming once everything is in place but, to give you a very brief overview, a Vegas oriented casino is coming soon in 2016; with a (you guessed it), Vegas theme, a bold, bright website and a promotions page that will get your head spinning. You’ll want to wait a day or so before signing up though; we have an exclusive Netentcasino welcome bonus all lined up!
BEST NEW CASINOS 2016
So what makes the difference between a good new casino and a great one? When we’re writing up the reviews for a brand new casino, we’re judging on a whole list of things (some more important than others).
We’ll consider things like customer support- do they offer 24/7 assistance? Do they offer live chat services? (A big plus in our book). We’ll also look at trustworthiness- do they offer an EU License (preferably either from the UK or Malta)? What is their games selection like? Are there jackpots? A good selection of NetEnt slots and live casino? Feedback from players? All of these factors, and so many more, factor into our ratings.
Each one of the new casinos in 2016 will be put under the same rigorous examination prior to their review, to really wheedle out the best new casinos from the ‘just OK’ ones.
NEW UK CASINOS 2016
In the past year, we’ve seen the industry diverge more than ever. On one hand, some of our favourite new casinos have been complex and feature-rich and have adopted an adventure casino ideology (frequently incorporating the use of characters a la Casumo and Casino Heroes, and making the casino experience more interactive) but, on the other, many of the latest casinos have really taken it back-to-basics, stripping their sites back to make them easier to navigate, ensuring they work equally as well on desktop as they do for mobile casino players, and doing away with anything they deem unnecessary.
With this latest batch of new casinos for 2016, we’re expecting more of the same (but perhaps with an exciting twist). Just when we think all the possible themes have been done, something brand new and completely innovative pops up.
Take the dark fairytale themed casino, for example, arriving on the scene just a few short weeks ago. They did what we didn’t think possible any more, it made us look twice. The site may be much the same as others, but the graphics, the beauty of the hand-drawn animations, are completely unique- quirky and, on some levels, also intriguingly disturbing.
NEW CASINO BONUSES
Where the latest casinos themselves have changed, so too have the casino bonuses they bring with them. This new generation of new casino bonuses looks quite different- players like all of you are more savvy than ever before; not content with deposit bonuses which come with high attached wagering requirements. Equally, for the less-established casinos, competition is great and, to inspire the trust and reel in new-registering players, they have to go bigger and better than anyone else.
We predict that 2016 will see the introduction of new casinos bonuses including a greater number of no deposit free spins (wagering requirement free) and, perhaps, more 200% welcome bonuses. You can deposit anywhere you choose so, from our perspective at least, casinos need to stand out either in their theme and ethos, or in offering tempting new promotions.
NEW MOBILE CASINOS
Lest we forget (and we’ve rattled on about it enough this year), the growth of the mobile casino- the iPad casino, the iPod casino, the Android casino, shows no sign of waning. More and more players than ever want to play on the move, on their lunch break, wherever they may be, and they don’t want to make sacrifices to do so. For each and every new casino in 2016, a mobile casino which is as inspiring and user-friendly as the desktop version is not a bonus, but an absolute essential.
