Spela Casino is part of a larger group of such gaming sites, which are owned by Genesis Global. The company is registered in Malta, so it’s subject to EU laws and it holds a gaming license from that same respectable jurisdiction. They have this casino as part of their brands, and just like the others, it will have more than 500 slot machines to offer its players, games which come from some of the most important developers available right now.
The aim with Spela seems to cover the Nordic market in particular, hence the company’s partnership with about 15 different banks from Germany, Finland and Sweden, as well as with Trustly. As the deposits and withdrawals are made via bank transfers, there is no registration needed, and no hidden fees either. It’s an innovative way to get players started at the casino, and it’s one of the advantages offered by Spela, for the players located in those two countries at least.
It works by having players with online bank accounts, from the list of banks accepted into the program, sign-up and deposit directly from those sites. They’re already verified when they create a bank account, and all the required details are there, so they don’t have to give the casino that information, not directly at least. They can deposit and withdraw from their online bank’s site, and there is no need to get a regular account at the casino as a result.
Software & Games
Like every other brand that’s run by Genesis Global, it’s trustworthy and it features an instant play platform. They collect games from big developers, and some smaller ones as well, and so they manage to have over 1300 slot machines to offer. Their big categories seem to be Slots & Jackpots, Live Casino and Casino Games. As for the companies that contribute with content, the list has big names on it, such as Microgaming, NYX or NetEnt, along with a few others.
Both Microgaming and NetEnt have some impressive progressive jackpots to give away, so I’d recommend checking out the Jackpots sub-category. Mega Moolah and Hall of Gods are two of the higher paying jackpots, both capable of making you a millionaire.
For the Live Casino category, they chose a mix of providers, which is great since the experience varies. Both NetEnt and Evolution Gaming are big players in this field, and they compete for your attention at Spela.
As for the other games available at Spela, you get a little bit of everything. The focus is clearly on slot machines, that’s where most of the variety comes from, but you get roulette, blackjack and any other game you could wish for as well.
The offer made by Spela is only for free spins at the moment, at least for their new players. The welcome package will deliver 100 free spins to players that make their first deposit, so that they can get a little bit more out of their experience with Spela. They get 20 free spins per day, for the first five days. To be eligible for this offer, you just need to make a deposit of €20 or higher. The winnings need to be wagered 40x, before they can be withdrawn. As for the slot machine on which you get to play, it’s the very popular Starburst, from NetEnt.
Being a VIP member at Spela is also worth it, provided that you can reach that stage. You get your own account manager, you get better promotions, faster response times and various other advantages.
Spela Casino Banking Options
As I’ve previously mentioned, the banking options are the ones that look most impressive, and different from what most casinos are doing in this field. Rather than accept regular payment options, you only get the list of 15 or so German, Swedish or Finnish banks to choose from. This insures that verification has already been done, and the need for a regular casino account is eliminated.
Finland has 10 banks listed among those available for use, while Sweden has 9. In Germany’s case, you’re asked to input the IBAN number for your bank account.
I love the new system, with verification and deposits/withdrawals done directly from the bank account, but obviously you need to be from one of the few supported countries, in order to take advantage of it. Otherwise, it’s a very good casino, which is the case with all these Genesis Global brands.
