There are a lot of people out there bleating about how Spinsane is not up to the ‘usual standard’ of new slots produced by NetEnt. To an extent, we agree. However, it is nice that the company is trying something new…plus, there are some pretty amazing prizes available too.
One of the massive issues that people have with the Spinsane slot machine is the fact that it is weirdly themed. In normal situations, NetEnt are the company to go to if you want a simple slot machine which is easy to understand no matter who you are. However, Spinsane tries to shake up the formula a little bit too much. There is no rhyme or reason behind the theme of the game.
Apparently, it is a game based around wolves, but this is not highlighted so much in the game bar a wolf paw. It certainly isn’t highlighted in the name. Don’t get me started on the fact that the reels are curved. This is a shame, because the rest of the game seems to play fairly well. It is a 5 reel slot with 27 different ways to win (so, 10 pay lines). The minimum bet is 0.10 and the maximum 500.
The minimum bet surprised me, at it is the perfect entry point for those people who do not have a huge sum of cash to spend on playing a slot machine. If you get lucky, and it is very, very difficult to get lucky, you can win up to 5,000x your initial bet.
I think the thing that is going to be most confusing to people who play Spinsane is the fact that some of the reels are missing symbols. Yep. Dead symbols on the reels. They offer absolutely nothing, which makes it even harder for you to be able to score a win.
Granted, when you do get a win, it is going to be that much sweeter as a result, but since this is a feature that I have never seen NetEnt have in one of their games before, it just confuses me. As an experienced slot player, it almost scared me away. If you want to win big, you are almost certainly going to need to rely on the wilds that appear on the reels. Thankfully, there is a free spins mode. Hit 3 scatters and you will get 10 free spins. The chances to win are not that much higher here, but free spins are free spins, right?
The RTP on Spinsane is 96.26% which certainly isn’t too shabby. It isn’t the highest that NetEnt have ever produced, but it is nowhere near the lowest. Basically, you should be getting a nice return on your cash. The problem is that it is a slot which is erring on the side of having a high volatility.
As you will likely know from reading the various reviews that we have put together on this website, high volatility games need a different playing strategy. You can’t just toss a ton of cash at them and hope for the best. This means that if you are on the richer side of things, it doesn’t mean that you should be hitting the maximum possible bet on the slot on every spin. You are going to lose most of the time and your bank roll is going to disappear.
You need to be keeping close to the lower end of the spectrum, to be honest. Have a look at your bank roll. If you can’t get 100-150 spins out of it, then don’t play this game. Simple as that. This is about all the tips we can offer you. Since it is not exactly a game that is brimming with features, all you can really do is spin and pray. Although, let’s be honest, this is the same for the vast majority of slot machines out there.
It is OK. Spinsane is nowhere near one of the best slots that we have ever played. It isn’t one of the best from NetEnt and it is clearly designed as a ‘filler slot’ in order to try out new features. However, if NetEnt are planning to go down this route with their games in the future, you absolutely need to play it. Anyway, it is fairly fun to play and there are some big prizes on offer, despite having a low minimum bet.
