    Default New Casino Site Feedback

    Having focused mainly on sports since I started I've decided to move more towards gaming this year to diversify.

    Initially I am targeting newer casino sites (https://www.newcasinosites.co/) hence the name, and before rolling out more sites I want to ask for feedback from casino affiliates who's opinion matters, i.e. GPWA members.

    Go nuts and be honest.

    Thanks in advance.

    You asked for it.
    I do not like the header NewCasinoSites.co in italic. It reminds me posters I did 25 years ago in win 3.1. Same font, but bold or superbold/wide bold would be better.
    The rest looks ok or I do not feel experienced enough to comment it.
    We are all bloodsucking ticks, hungry, devious
    each one latched on to the ass of the previous
    when the last and the first latch on it can be shown
    ass-blood sucked by the first from the last is his own

    Overall, I think your site looks good. You’ve managed to keep it consistent (the style) and thorough (simple and straightforward and it’s easy to follow through with) all throughout your pages. I also like how you’ve got a blog page. Good luck.

    The variety of casinos is too huge on the homepage, you should minimalise the text there and focus more on the design of the homepage

    Hi - I think it looks good. Personally I think you'll need a comparison list instead of / as well as the more long-form review on your home page. Or at least add in some quick 'highlights' in bullet point for each casino - i.e. best for ... fast cashouts, big game selection. That kind of thing. Also, I think people want to see at a glance what games they can play and which providers are supplying each site. So might be worth trying to get that in.

    I like the design / icons etc. too. Nice and simple. Great URL too. Do EMDs still work?

    I don't like it.

    You went for a clean design but to me it looks like it's from 2005.

    I don't understand the long pages. It makes it difficult for me to know where I am, there's no navigation, and every page ends with the same passage. I'm forced to either Claim an offer or read through an enormous page - there's nowhere to click to learn more about the casino.

    This site can't rank for any keyword, I assume you're sending traffic that's ready to convert to it and you only need a landing page with CTAs. Yet you went with an EMD. And no logo.

    If I'm already in the mood to Claim an offer I don't want to read through an entire description of the casino. If, on the other hand, I want to know more and read a review before I deposit my money, I got nowhere to click. And the descriptions themselves are no good - they're too vague and not giving any key points I'd be interested in, e.g. number of slots, names of slot developers. All this is a bit too vague:

    "Volt is an online casino and sportsbook under new management. The recent overhaul has set a fresh course for the company who are now owned by Fair Play Bets, also the owners of the slot developer, Wazdan."
    "Unsurprisingly, then, Wazdan titles are proudly on show on the casino’s user friendly (if a little bland) interface, but Volt are clearly not precious since a good selection of slots from other providers such as "
    "and the majority can be played on mobile too which is good news for the travelling gamer, plus there are some refreshingly thoughtful search options when navigating the game library that are genuinely helpful, volatility level being one."
    "The Volt Zone, which is their way of rewarding player loyalty, must get a mention since they have put so much thought into it. Complete ‘missions’ to receive ‘Volts’ – the internal currency at the site – which can either be traded for free spins with no wagering requirements (woohoo!). Aside from new player offers, promotions are thin on the ground and will tie in with the Volt Zone when available."

    I'd like to know right away that I can "Complete missions to earn Volt points and trade them for free spins with no wagering requirements." and would also like to know how often can I claim that, how many free spins, and maybe even how much money do I have to wager to get those spins. Is it 120 spins? Once or can I get that every week?

    It just doesn't work for me. Sorry mate. It's just a strange website from an UX perspective, at least in my opinion. Maybe you've discovered a way to convert like crazy and I'm an idiot.

    But I guess there's a reason all the big websites that we know are converting like crazy are all using pretty much the same structure. And it's not this one.

    I wasn't sure who the site is aimed at.

    The current content makes the assumption the player really knows about the things you write about. It assumes they know what slots are provided by which suppliers and why knowing who owns the casino may be important. White Label and other industry terms are only really relevant to Affiliates and Players who really know there stuff.

    If you're aiming for players who don't know much then you need to provide a lot more basic information that will be relevant to them. And then think about, as Dan says, things that will convert them.

    I like the idea of having a site about new casinos. Think about why someone might want to try a new casino and not an established one. provide content that helps them make that decision.

    I'm the last person to give anyone advice on design. I'll leave that to others

    I agree with the above poster who said the site looks like it's from 2005.

    Thank you all for the feedback. I do know who I am aiming the site at but I take on board the comments to make that more defined.

    Dan, I doubt there will be anything I can do to make this site meet your approval but I thank you for your honesty in any case.

    Casinonmark, something I am deliberately trying to do is avoid long reviews and yes I very much do hope EMD's still work.

    I agree with your Sherlock the header / logo is dated and was mainly a placeholder. I will be getting this redone once I've ironed out some of the more critical issues.

    One further question I wanted to ask if any of you thought the bonuses page (https://www.newcasinosites.co/bonuses/) would be better as the home page in light of some of the comments here?

    I personally think that your bonuses page would be better to replace your home page.

    You need an about page.

    This. I'd also recommend you to get privacy and cookie policy. Also, I urge you to write/get SEO friendly content with better grammar and writing style. I am writing this comment by taking "CasinoKings" content in reference.

    About page does nothing. TOS and other boilerplate text does nothing for rankings.

    To determine if a good about us sectio helps or not i would recommend a look into Google s quality raters guidelines or the 23 questions by amit singhai.

    Also authority and trust are made up crap by the snake oil SEO industry. Google is looking for unique stuff; and the majority have no clue what this word really entails.

    Raters guidelines are meant to make the web documents better, which works for the overall ecosystem. However, has also nothing to do with rankings.

    Hi!
    You need to add rating. That is, on the main page, what is the best and in why ...
    This requires a certain rating system and assessment. Players love to give feedback. I also liked the fact that you have a blog / news site. Perhaps it makes sense to make one the most important news and display it on all the main pages of the site.
