Having worked in this industry for 10 years (wow does that make me feel old!) I’ve seen so many new casinos come and go, that it’s hard to get too excited when a new one pops up on our radar, but the latest addition, JoyCasino has me really very intrigued. Firstly, the design of the site I can totally get on board with.
Steam Punk Design at JoyCasino
Ever since Steam Tower slot was launched by Netent I’ve been totally into this ‘steam punk’ thing, and their site is based on this design.
Steam punk is a science fiction or fantasy environment that is heavily inspired by the industrial steam powered machinery of the 19th century. It can be purely design focused, like this site or can even be reflected in gadgets, home design, ornaments, clothing and jewellery. JoyCasino have designed their website to reflect this strangely beautiful style and I have to say, it really works! The website looks like the inner workings of a steam powered factory, one that’s well polished and running smoothly and it adds a refreshing new look to an online casino, where it can be hard to stand out.
They have really picked the theme and run with it as no detail is over looked. The font is inkeeping with the steam punk design, as are tiny things like the social media icons, the website tabs (New, Slots, Video Poker, Table Games etc), and even the live jackpot ticker.
Spectator Mode, Tournaments and a Bazillion Prizes
As well as a totally unique design for an online casino, JoyCasino has a bunch of extra features on their site that I’ve never seen before.
Firstly, they run very regular tournaments. We’re talking, basically every day. The tournaments usually have various stages and run for quite a few weeks. For example the Summer Lottery tournament ran from July 6th all the way to August 23rd and was set on Netent games such as Spinata Grande, Gonzo’s Quest, Jack and the Beanstalk, Starburst and Twin Spin; a really great mix of old and new!
A Bazillion Prizes
Sounds silly, but do you know, I don’t think it’s far off. In a tournament at JoyCasino you can expect to see multiple levels of prizes meaning a whole hoard of players have a chance at winning something. A standard set up could look a lot like this (taken from their Summer Lottery)
Places 1 – 20 win a % portion of prize cash.
Places 21 – 200 each win anything from 20 free spins up to 100 free spins.
Plus, the top 50 players will each win 50USD in cash.
The prizes may vary from tournament to tournament but you get the idea of how extensive and generous they are!
