What we recommend instead
We’re sorry to say that Spinsvilla doesn’t give you any more than the average Cozy Games bingo site does. In fact, it offers less, as there’s no bingo and no loyalty scheme. If there’s one positive thing to say about Spinsvilla, however, it’s that it offers plenty of bonuses to both new and existing members.
Design & Usability
Like most Cozy Games’ online bingo sites, Spinsvilla uses a pretty basic design template, although the artwork taken from popular slots helps to make the prominent offers ad banner more noticeable and appealing. Speaking of the advertising banner, it takes up more than half of the screen, so you have to scroll down to properly view the games on offer in the lobby section which sits underneath it.
As we’ve discovered by chance, there’s usually a cartoon image on the far right next to your scroll bar that, when you hover over it with your mouse, expands to show a clickable link which takes you to the monthly special offer.
The introduction to Spinsvilla lies right at the bottom homepage and is, therefore, too easy to overlook. However, it’s quite poorly written (possibly by a non-native English speaker) and doesn’t add much value, in our opinion.
The main navigation banner lets you view the three different game types (Slots, Casino, and Scratch), as well as the Promotions and Help pages. Plus, it’s easy to log in or sign up thanks to the prominent buttons at the top-right of the page.
Software & Gameplay
The software behind Spinsvilla is from Cozy Games – a big name in the online bingo market, and now also a rising star on the online slot websites scene. Cozy’s software platform provides you with high-quality games that be enjoyed at home or on the move. The gameplay is undoubtedly smooth, and the lobby is very simple to use.
Safety & Security
Spinsvilla is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Isle of Man Gambling Commission. Trustwave supplies the SSL encryption, and iTech Labs independently tests the casino’s random number generator (RNG).
Payments & Withdrawals
You can use any of the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Pay by Mobile (Boku), Visa Delta, Paysafecard, Neteller, and Skrill.
You can deposit between £10 and £500 per transaction, and withdraw between £10 and £1,000 per day. You can make up to five withdrawal requests during any seven-day period, and they take up to three working days to be processed.
The full range of support methods are available 24/7, including live chat, telephone, email, and online support ticket. However, it appears that the customer service team doesn’t just deal with Spinsvilla customers, but also all other Cozy Games sites. Therefore, it lacks the personal touch of standalone casinos.
Bonuses & Promotions
If you like what you find and want to stick around for a while longer, there are cash match bonuses of 100% waiting to be claimed upon your first and second deposits of £10 to £500.
Players can also claim free spins with these deposits, although the number scales depending on the size of your deposit. A minimum £10 deposit will get you 20 free spins, while larger deposits can supply up to 350 free spins. These welcome bonuses come with 40x wagering requirements.
Regular players can snap up reload bonuses on all future deposits. The bonus amount you receive is based on how much you top up your account with. For example, deposits of £10 to £49 get a 25% bonus while deposits of £200 or more get a 100% bonus.
You can also grab a £10 Amazon voucher for every friend you refer that becomes a depositing member. Plus, if you deposit at least £50 in any week, you’ll be able to claim 5% to 20% cashback.
The “Special Promotion” tab gives you details of the monthly offer which could be anything from a prize draw to a slots tournament.
Overall, there’s a decent range of bonuses and promotions available at Spinsvilla, but the majority can be found across the Cozy Games network and are, therefore, not unique.
While the homepage introduction lets you know that you can enjoy “the best UK online casino available on both desktop and almost all mobile devices known to man”, the lack of instructions is frustrating. However, as we’re familiar with how the Cozy Games software platform works, we can tell you that there’s no mobile application for Spinsvilla as users of both desktop and mobile devices can play via the main Spinsvilla website.
Variety & Originality
Spinsvilla divides its games into three different categories: Slots, Casino, and Scratch.
Sadly, the casino choices are quite limited, and only consist of video poker (10’s or Better, Aces & Faces, Jacks or Better, and Deuces Wild), two types of roulette (American, French, and European Gold), Keno, and blackjack (Classic, European, and Multi-Hand European). So, if you want to play live dealer games or other table games such as baccarat, Spinsvilla is unable to oblige.
When it comes to scratch cards, the choice is wider. There are 27 to discover, but worryingly, the players who’ve voted them out of five have only awarded them three stars.
Most of the slots are in-house games which you wouldn’t have heard of unless you’ve played at another site that uses the Cozy Games platform. There are, however, some slots from Microgaming such as Bridesmaids, Avalon, Mermaid’s Millions, and Ariana.
Loyalty & Rewards
Oddly, there’s no information about a loyalty/VIP scheme on the Spinsvilla website. However, you can take advantage of a reload bonus of up to 100% whenever you deposit £10 or more to your account.
