Spin Genie is a popular slot site (owned by Gaming Realms) that originally sent players on a journey through the world of Spin the dog collecting bonuses and free spins as they went. Spin the dog had to be retired after being banned from TV and in fact he has the dubious distinction of being the first (but definitely not the last) cartoon character to be considered to have too much potential to appeal to children to be allowed to front a gambling site.
The site now has no front person after a short stint by Louie Spence (of Pineapple Dance fame) and the bonus/free spins collection map game is also gone, but Spin Genie remains an excellent site for slots, with a superb selection including top titles from IGT, Microgaming, Net Ent and Eyecon.
There were bingo rooms there for a while and in a brave move, the bingo platform was an entirely new one, called Grizzly. Unfortunately despite being a fully featured platform with 75 and 90 ball bingo and lively chat it did not prove very popular and was quietly dropped in Spring 2016.
Spin Genie is one of the few places where you can play Slingo (a hybrid bingo/slots game) for real money, with several versions available to play including Deal or No Deal Slingo. The multiplayer version, Slingo Boom, arrived at Spin Genie in Summer 2017 and although this is essentially a type of 75 ball bingo the site remains very much geared towards slots and casino.
