Play UK is a white-label casino that launched in early 2019. It features Nektan’s classic skin and is powered by the acclaimed Evolve platform. Licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, this reasonably well-established operator features the network’s full complement of games. Design-wise, its website utilises a full-screen layout on desktops and relies on Nektan’s original menu layout.
The standard left-sided panel, which populates so many third-party Nektan casinos, is simple and convenient, if not a little trite. Read just about any one of our other casino reviews and you’ll know that games can be arranged according to type and provider. Sorting by volatility isn’t available though.
As is typical of a white label offering, branding is minimal. The site features a navy blue and gold colour scheme and a basic but effective logo. Simple is the ultimate sophistication, as the saying goes. And it’s fair to say that most gamers don’t visit online casinos to coo at the purty design.
Nevertheless, if you want to attract visitors to your site, you’ve got to make some effort to make it look presentable. And Play UK Casino succeeds in this area. Believe us, there are plenty of Nektan casinos that don’t.
As mentioned, Play UK casino offers players a full portfolio of casino games. In fact, Nektan’s full package is available here. So players have access to an extensive range of big-brand slots. Progressive jackpots feature too, as well as live dealer games from Evoluton and Netent Live. Those looking to take a break will also appreciate the bingo and instant win titles. In terms of game collection then, there’s not much wrong. So how about player allurements?
Although Play UK doesn’t feature a full quota of promotions, its welcome package is solid enough. New players can claim a bonus of up to £850 plus 25 spins on Wolf Gold. This covers the opening three deposits. Its structured like so:
- First Deposit – 200% match up to £100 + 25 spins on Wolf Gold
- Second Deposit – 100% match up to £250
- Third Deposit – 50% match up to £500
Standard wagering rules of x40 apply with winnings capped at four times the bonus amount. Unfortunately, The Edge of Space Network networked tournament is the only other promotion available.
However, in a stunning turn of events, the bods at Play UK casino have decided to include detailed info about their VIP package! We couldn’t believe it. Apparently, there are six loyalty levels: amber, topaz, emerald, sapphire, ruby and diamond. What’s more, each level features a ‘new set’ of benefits including ‘bigger bonuses’, ‘priority support’ and ‘exclusive games’.
OK, we’ll stop the sarcasm. But we were dumbfounded to come across a Nektan casino that actually bothers to include comprehensive details of their VIP scheme. And it’s not just the usual bog-standard VIP spiel either. There’s info about each perk together with related T&Cs. There’s even a guide on how players can move up each level – unreal.
The usual networked contact options are available. This includes email, telephone and live help. A standard FAQ section is also provided for players with run-of-the-mill queries.
To conclude then, we have ourselves a superior Nektan casino. Game variety is superb with an extensive range of titles to choose from. Payment options are also fine as is the customer support section. The only downside is the limited number of promotions available. This is however helped by the VIP scheme. Indeed, we were rather enthused about this, to say the least.
To actually provide detailed information about a loyalty package is pretty rare for online casinos in general, let alone third party operators. That the Play UK site also includes the low-down on all of the T&CS attached to each perk is especially admirable. To us, this indicates a certain degree of transparency, which in turn offers a major trust signal to players – this can only be a good thing. Sadly, many operators hide behind ambiguous wording when it comes to their loyalty programmes. Not so with Play UK. So full marks to them.
