Year of Establishment
The Slot Buzz is a fan site for slot players who want to know all about the latest games and casinos in the UK. They review the newest games by big providers like Big Time Gaming and NetEnt on a weekly basis and cover the big site launches as well. Their reviews are written by slots players and industry professionals so they are of a high quality as well as being impartial. They also publish guides about the industry that gamblers would find interesting, covering topics like UK Gambling Law and Player Protection, and how to raise a complaint against an online casino operator.
If the site is updated
Updates are one of the website’s cornerstones. As they’re rather new to this kind of business, they try hard to contain all the main slot and casino sites operating in the UK, especially when it comes to welcome offers and promotions. The Slot Buzz is being enriched almost every week by new casino reviews. The news section is also very active, containing lots of information about the industry in the British Isles. The only bug found is the “licencing” section, which contains only a review of Malta Gaming Authority. An innovation not found in many other websites is a slot sites listing by operator. There are also sections about payment methods and fair play.
There’s a whole “Slot Bonuses” section, including our comprehensive guide on all types of bonuses, what to do to claim one, and understanding all those tricky terms and conditions. Most of these are deposit slot bonus offers. Some come with free spins as well. Describing the specific terms and conditions just after the casino banner and offer is very helpful and comparable. There’s also a short list about the software used and the cash-out time, which is also crucial.
If the user experience is good
The main word which describes this website is simplicity. No curves, no complex frontends, not any jingles and pop-ups. The Slot Buzz structure looks like a simple blog. Articles placed one after other downwards, casino lists containing only the main information. Even the reviews are short enough to be easily read. For those who like striking websites with impressive colors all around, this will look like a simple casino catalogue. But the main job is done.
If it’s modern
There are touches of modernity, such as articles in main pages keep on appearing when you keep on scrolling down. The main menu is restricted to the main categories, there aren’t any sidelong sub-menus. It seems like the website was designed this way to be more easily visited through the mobile version. Personally, I dislike websites with a modern structure but not interesting content at all and TheSlotBuzz is just the opposite: A not so modern website, trying to inform accurately and reliably.
If it’s social media friendly
Not at all. After over a year in business, it’s clear that the social media development is not their priority. In fact, at the bottom side of the website there are a Google Plus, a Facebook and a Twitter button. Of those, only the Twitter account is appearing, with just a handful of tweets and some decades of followers. The other two buttons redirect to TheSlotBuzz main page.
If banner positions are good
Apart from the lists, which are ads themselves, TheSlotBuzz is devoting the whole right side of the main page to banners. The “Recommended Slot Sites” banner, where thumbnails of the main casinos appear, is tricky enough to attract some attention. The central picture of the main page is an ad itself. There are also “Latest New Slots”, “Slot sites by software” and “Recommended fast paying casino” banners.
Final Score (4,5) ♠♠♠♠
When you visit TheSlotBuzz, you get the impression that the job is done. You get all the information you need quickly and accurately. Ads are present, but the style the reviews are written convinces you that the author wants to help rather than sell the casino in question. And that’s very important for me. Of course there are pros and cons, but the whole experience is positive. If they’ll try to be more social friendly developing their social media, they’ll address to a more massive audience.
