Arctic Spins Casino ReviewFirst Deposit Bonus: £10 / 25 Free Spins
Arctic Spins Casino bills itself as the ‘blisteringly cool casino’ having launched in 2017. It may be cool but it is certainly not unique, as this is another offering from the prolific Nektan group who are behind a number of casinos which struggle to differentiate from one another. Despite not having played here before, the Casino Gorilla recognised the layout instantly as being familiar from previous Nektan casinos. Same games, same layout, same licenses – generally the main differences appear in the different promotions on offer. So of course that is where our Casino Gorilla’s review starts. Did he receive a chilly welcome from Arctic Spins Casino?

Arctic Spins Casino Welcome Bonus
Rich Ride Casino from Nektan offers a welcome bonus of £500 plus 100 Starburst free spins. Meanwhile Ace Lucky Casino from the same group offer just £50. So what is in store for new players who register and deposit with Arctic Spins? Well this welcome is not just chilly, it is positively freezing! Deposit at least £10 with this casino and you receive the miserly bonus of just 25 free spins on the Starburst game. And no more. The casino call this offer brrrr-illiant, but the Casino Gorilla can think of some other less complimentary ways to describe it!
- 25 free spins for deposit of £10 or more
- £10 minimum deposit
- 40x wagering requirement on free spin winnings
- Free spin winnings capped at 4x initial winnings
Free spins are all you get for making your first deposit at Arctic Casino. They are for the famous Starburst slot and are worth 10p each. That means that even if you were to deposit £100 here first time out, you would still only get a bonus worth an equivalent of £2.50. Not the most rewarding offer the Casino Gorilla has ever seen. Anything you win from these spins must be wagered 40 times before it can be withdrawn.
No bonus code is needed if you want to claim this offer from Arctic Spins, and the Casino Gorilla is not sure he would go to the trouble of entering a code even if they asked for one. Instead, if you don’t want to receive your 25 free spins then just opt out of the bonus offer. If you are not sure how to do this, get in touch with customer support before you deposit and they will be glad to guide you.
Select the ‘player favourites’ in the games section of Arctic Spins Casino and you will be greeted with a wall of famous slot gaming titles. As with all the Nektan range of casinos you are guaranteed to encounter plenty of great slot gaming options. The slots on this site come from widely respected providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Yggdrasil and Scientific Gaming, to name just a few. You can filter the games according to various different factors, including the size of your potential winnings. Here are some of the most popular slot games available at Arctic Spins:
- Thor’s Lightning
- Agent Jane Blonde
- Immortal Romance
- Pirates’ Treasure
- Rainbow Jackpots
- Leprechaun Spins
- Davinci Diamonds
- Mustang Gold
- Break da Bank Again
- Bonanza Megaways
The Casino Gorilla is always a little bit suspicious of online casinos which have the word ‘spin’ in their name, as he fears this means they will neglect live gaming in favour of slots. With around 30 live dealer tables, Arctic Spins definitely haven’t done that. As usual, most tables are for either Roulette or Blackjack, but there are lots of other options too. Alternatives to the big two include Baccarat, Dragon Tiger, 3 Card Poker, Caribbean Poker, Football Studio and Casino Hold ‘Em.
It is not necessary to download an app in order to enjoy playing real money casino games at Arctic Spins Casino. Just log onto the site with the same details you use when playing on a computer, and you are good to go. This site and the games within are perfectly adapted for mobile use, whether that might be on a tablet or a smartphone. Just remember that if you are playing a live dealer game you will need to have a strong and uninterrupted wifi signal. These games tend to take up more bandwidth and thus are more likely to become disconnected.
There are plenty of different payment methods available from Arctic Spins Casino and the FAQ section provides lengthy instructions on how to use all of them. Boku is a method of funding which is done via your phone, and this is the only one where a fee is deducted for deposits or withdrawals. All of the other payment methods are free to use, unless your local bank decides to impose a charge. Deposits are instant with most payment methods, although withdrawals can take a couple of days since they have to be individually checked.

Security and Fairness
The fact that Arctic Spins Casino is licensed in both the UK and Gibraltar can set your mind at ease when it comes to security and fairness. These two regulators are very strict when it comes to how they allow casinos to operate, and they put the interests of players first. The site uses secure encrypted software to keep all transactions private. It is also certified by IBAS, which is an independent body which can be consulted if there is any dispute.
As we mentioned briefly above, the FAQ section at Arctic Spins is mostly concerned with how the different payment methods work. It’s an important area, and if you have a query related to this then the FAQ section should be able to help. Failing that, you will need to speak to a customer service representative. Telephone lines and live chat are available between the hours of 8am and midnight (UK time) every day. Otherwise you will have to contact them via email and can expect to get a reply within 24 hours.
When the Casino Gorilla searched the terms and conditions of the Arctic Spins Casino, the only restricted country mentioned by name was the United States. Otherwise it simply states that the service will not be available in countries where online gaming is illegal. This means that if you cannot access the website it probably means that you are living in one of those countries.
A warm welcome is a beautiful thing, and the Casino Gorilla was distinctly unimpressed by the frosty reception in the form of 25 free spins as a welcome bonus. Besides that disappointment, the casino is nicely put together, has some strong licenses and a good selection of games. All of these factors are important, but as Arctic Spins is pretty much a duplicate of other Nektan-operated online casinos, the Casino Gorilla suggests that you may as well go for one with a more generous welcome bonus.
