Around three-quarters of respondents said that access to bonuses, free chip coupons and exclusive deals is what they like most about Slots Play Casinos. Information about new game updates was the second most important feature, just ahead of casino reviews.

However, rather than simply soaking up the positive feedback and praise, the peer-led online gaming site is giving its players even more of what they like.

The platform has increased the number of exclusive deals it offers – especially free spins – with a brand-new layout featuring easy-to-find game reviews and bonuses. Users can also enjoy an even more intuitive design with enhanced navigation and speed.

Laurie Renfield of Slots Play Casinos said: “Slots Play Casinos prioritises being responsive to our visitors’ input, which strengthens our peer-led approach and vision: they spoke, we listened, we acted.

“This is the perfect symbiotic relationship for our ever-growing popular hub of information, smart strategies, and great deals in online gaming. Our approach sets a benchmark for the sector and is undoubtedly good news for players.”

After embarking on its latest site performance survey, Slots Play Casinos received hundreds of completed questionnaires in just a few days.
