Fantastic Spins Verdict
Fantastic Spins is a really nice site, with a fun design and plenty to offer to players. The site backs up a quirky and original design with some good games, which may not be the top of the slot world, but they do include some interesting variety. With good mobile play and interesting promotions, this site has a lot to offer, but also has room to improve.
Design & Usability
The entire Fantastic Spins site design revolves around superheroes at Fantastic Spins, specifically with two male and female mascots. They stand proud on the home page, with cheese grins, capes and spandex outfits. The background behind this is a comic book city skyline, with the site logo projected on the sky. This even moves as you scroll down. The same artwork is used in promotions too, so this site really makes an effort to be original.
After a quick registration, you get a more streamlined view of the site, with a balance counter and avatar on the right-hand side of pages. There are site links and account links on the header as usual, too. The site manages to leave plenty of space for getting around, as well as having large artwork. Hopping around is quick and easy, with no dead ends or bland pages- a very good effort all round.
Software & Gameplay
You will see the slots laid out on clear tiles on the lobby, though it’s a little cluttered by player information. There are some basic tabs and a search box. Sometimes, searching seems to break the page a little and force you to reload- hopefully not a problem for all users.
The games are not the quickest to load here, but this may vary. They appear in a pop-up window, with no special overlay or presentation, which is something of a disappointment. A simple, no-frills software setup.
Safety & Security
Fantastic Spins is protected by the power of SSL encryption, ensuring that your data is safe from villains. The site’s security certificate is provided by GoDaddy. The site also has the eCOGRA seal of approval, for fairness and safety.
The site is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Government of Gibraltar. There’s also a responsible gaming section to help players avoid over-spending.
Payments & Withdrawals
You will find the cashier link up at the top right, opening a pop-up with clear instructions. The system is nice and easy and also lets you bank by phone. Withdrawals are a little long here, at 4-7 working days, but there are no fees.
Fantastic Spins accepts MasterCard, Visa, PaySafeCard and wire transfer. The lack of e-wallets here is a serious downside and will put players off.
There’s a help link at the top right of the site, which opens a useful page with friendly welcome text. This includes a link to some very detailed and neatly arranged FAQs.
The Fantastic Spins team can be reached through email or phone, but sadly not live chat. This is quite a downside compared to other sites, plus the phones are not 24/7, so night owls may have to wait for rescue.
Bonuses & Promotions
Fantastic Spins has a spins-based welcome bonus, starting with 10 free spins as a no deposit slots bonus, ideal for just trying out the games.
(10 Free Spins: New players only. Offer valid until further notice. Players must register a valid credit or debit card to receive free spins. Withdrawal restrictions apply: wagering 80x free spins winnings. Wagering requirements vary by game. Full T&Cs apply. 18+ only).
There is no cash match on your first deposit, but you do get 100 free spins regardless of how big or small your deposit is. This is 20 free spins a day for five days, but be warned that the winnings have an 80x wagering requirement.
(Welcome offer: Non-funded players only. Offer valid until further notice. Min deposit £10. Max bonus £50. Withdrawal restrictions apply: wagering 20x Bonus & 20x Deposit.

The site has a few other regular offers too, such as cashback weekends, Triple Chip Thursday which is essentially boosted loyalty points and more. This kind of weekly offer is great for players who like to pop into their favourite sites regularly.
Fantastic Spins offers an app for iPad and iPhone users, which is new and not yet rated, but it seems to effectively recreate the mobile site. Android users can access the same site through their mobile browsers.
The mobile site has the same bright artwork as the main site, though the mascots are not visible on all pages, due to space restrictions. Once you log in, you get a standard Cassava template, which is a shame in a way but it does work very well and give full game access.
Variety & Originality
Fantastic Spins uses a few providers, to give the site some variety, but the selection does err towards the more basic titles. Fortunately, NetEnt is present with some cutting-edge games, like Hansel and Gretel and Gonzo’s Quest. Williams provides Amazon Queen and Wizard of Oz, while IGT provides Cleopatra and PariPlay brings Sharknado. There are also many 888 Games slots including Nightmare on Elm Street, with a progressive jackpot.
The table games include the usual roulette and blackjack, plus keno, baccarat and some poker games. There are a handful of variants and notably, some unusual titles like Clash of the Titans and Deal or No Deal video poker. However, there are no live dealers.
Loyalty & Rewards
Fantastic Spins has a VIP Club area which describes what’s on offer for loyal members. There are five VIP classes, from New Star to 5 Star, which you rise through by spending. The amounts are clearly given, letting players know where they stand. Only the top tier is invite-only.
Members can look forward to free spins, deposit bonuses, bonus and real cash and exclusive products as they rise the ranks. This a good, clear, simple system, but doesn’t appear to have high roller treatment.
