- Joreels.com perfectly recreates the 1920s speakeasy vibe in online casino form
- Site is stocked with more than 700 games from the industry’s leading developers
In 1920s America, when prohibition was at its height, the only place to be seen – and to get a drink – was in a speakeasy. These illicit dens sprung up across the country, from Chicago to New York, and became the preferred hangout of gangsters, their molls and indeed anyone else who fancied living life on the edge for a few hours.
Now it’s the casino world’s turn to have its own speakeasy – of a kind – thanks to the launch of the all-new online casino, Joreels.com.
The site, developed and launched courtesy of FAST TRACK, has been modelled on a 1920s speakeasy – complete with real-world bar type style and cool, turn of the 20th-century look and feel. It’s a perfect example of gangster-meets online casino.
Play hard and play fast
Enter the site and you’ll be greeted by the eponymous Joreels who, in a welcome statement, declares that “We got no wet blankets in here, once you’re in, you’re in… You’re going to play hard and play fast.” If that doesn’t get you excited for then we’re not sure what will.
And, despite being a ‘new kid on the block’ Joreels has amassed an impressive catalogue of online casino games from many of the industry’s leading lights.
With titles from the likes of NetEnt, NYX, Microgaming, Yggdrasil and Play ‘n GO to choose from, there can be no faulting the quality of games of offer. Settle into the speakeasy and take your pick from such online slots as Wild Wild West, Hong Kong Tower, Fairytale Legends and Jungle Spirit among others. In fact, there are over 700 casino games to choose from at the new casino.
There’s also a 100% first deposit match worth up to £200 to welcome you over the threshold of the newest and most illicit legal casino on the web.
He who dares, wins
Why the decision to recreate the prohibition era in digital form? Well, it’s worth noting that in recent years speakeasies have come back into fashion, with hipster bars popping up everywhere modelled on these now-legendary US establishments, complete with ‘hidden bars’ that lurk out the back of barbershops behind concealed doors.
Joreels appears to be eschewing the concealed element of running a speakeasy however, sharing it’s arrival – and vast games catalogue – with online casino fans in European markets.
The site’s operators are targeting the British and Scandinavian markets initially, but there are plans to launch a dedicated casino app later this year. Fast Track’s CEO, Simon Lidzén proclaimed that the project, the fourth site his firm has launched this year, has involved “going back in time to deliver a true blast from the past.”
Joreels’ founder meanwhile, Josh Gruber, simply commented enigmatically “He who dares, wins”. Mysterious stuff, but perhaps it will all start to make more sense once you’ve chugged half a bottle of (metaphorical, of course) moonshine and spun the reels of the speakeasy casino’s cool new slots.
Mixing a cool, 1920s speakeasy aesthetic with a jam-packed online casino seems like a pretty intoxicating – and exciting – combination. And Joreels.com looks like the real deal. It’s often that we see a new online casino launched, but it’s impressive to see that the founders of Joreels have done their homework; its quite a catch to boast a huge catalogue of games from what is arguably a list of the top developers around. User experience is a key trend so, as a new casino, it’s essential to go all out in recreating something memorable, and which will entertain players far beyond a short-term spin on the slots. On first impression Joreels’s look and feel will go a long way to recreating this. Who doesn’t get excited by gangsters, illicit drinking dens and 20s cool anyway?
