I've had an earlier look at this new casino from Germany, Das Ist Casino, but wasn't that keen to sign up as yet, until today. But before doing that, I checked through once again the terms and conditions, just to be very sure of what I'm getting myself into. Frankly speaking, the offer of 50 free spins with the first deposit isn't really exciting, certainly not when it's on Starburst, but 50 free spins on Fruit Zen, yes, that would attract me. Not a lot, but sufficiently enough to make me sign up. The 50x wagering on the bonuses and free spins isn't that welcoming either, but I was willing enough to give it a go and a try.
Registration was very very easy. Just key in email your address and password and you're already registered. Nonetheless, an email validation was still required as a standard procedure. After doing that, I immediately filled in my profile details first, then proceeded to make a 20 EUR deposit to claim the Welcome Bonus package. This too was accomplished in a breeze. No sweat at all. The 'My Bonuses' section showed I had 2 bonuses, one for the 150% deposit bonus, the other one for the 50 free spins, which needed to be activated first, which I promptly did. Everything went smoothly and nicely so far.
Next, I clicked on Fruit Zen to play the 50 free spins first. When the game came on, the free spins weren't there, just my money and bonus money, which disappointed me a little bit, because the offer mentioned 50 free spins on either Starburst or Fruit Zen. Well, it wasn't 'either' at all. It was set for Starburst, which isn't my choice of game, and there wasn't a choice for me at all. I had to settle for Starburst, like it or not. Sheesh! Anyway, I then proceeded to play Fruit Zen first.
Fruit Zen is actually almost exactly as Starburst, in terms of its features and game play, but Fruit Zen tend to give the 1 and 2 Wild Reels more often than Starburst, and that's why I have always preferred Fruit Zen over Starburst. The game started cold for several spins before the first Wild Reel came. After several minutes of playing, my balance was slightly more than my starting amount. The going was not that bad, although it wasn't that good. So I upped my bets a little bit and hoped for more small wins to come. Big wins would be most welcomed! Hahaha. After a few 2 Wild Reels, I was expecting a 3 Wild Reels feature to come soon, so I upped my bets a little bit more. But the 3 never came, even after several 40 - 50 short spells of non-paying spins. Usually, the 3 Wild Reels would have appeared by then, but in this case, it didn't at all, and I finally lost all of my balance. That not only hurt but disappointed me as well. It makes me wonder if Fruit Zen had undergone a recent update, because it wasn't playing as I knew it any longer.
Next, I loaded up Starburst to play the 50 free spins. Starburst being the Starburst as I know it, the game went blardy badly! Not even one decent small win from the 50 free spins! The 1 Wild Reel only came about 5 times or so, and none of them paid anything much, just peanuts for the monkeys, but I ain't a monkey. Sheesh! With whatever small winnings I had from those free spins, I continued playing, ending with a big fat zero balance very soon after. A really totally disappointing game on Starburst! If only I could choose to play on Fruit Zen instead! At the end of the day, I was feeling more of dissatisfaction than of anything else, and I was wondering whether I should rate this review as 4 stars or 5 stars, because the games played badly, but the casino wasn't at fault, so I ended up giving 6 stars instead.
