Ladbrokes Instant Spins Gets An Upgrade

Published On 26th March 2024

Free to play games have become a staple incentive for online slots and bingo brands hoping to entice players back to their platforms again and again. William Hill's The Bonus Drop, Paddy's Wonder Wheel, Coral's Rewards Grabber and Sky's Prize Machine are amongst the many daily free play games you can enjoy. Each offer the chance to win bonuses, free spins and even cash prizes. The problem with these games is that they can become a little bit boring. For example The Bonus Drop doesn't seem to offer any wins these days and therefore in our view no longer functions as an incentive to return to William Hill regularly. Ladbrokes Casino obviously have been monitoring their own free game, Instant Spins, and have decided that it's high time for a change to keep players interested.

More Wheels To Spin

The phrase if it ain't broke don't fix it is often used whenever there's change, but with the case of Instant Spins, Ladbrokes have adopted the mantra. The basic Instant Spins game is exactly the same in that you login to the site and spin the wheel for the chance to win free spins, bonuses or even a cash prize. However Ladbrokes have decided that players need more options and more wheels. This means that some days you may login to Instant Spins and see up to four different wheels. Unfortunately you don't get to spin them all but instead can select which wheel that you wish to try. The main instant spins wheel offers prizes up to 100 but another wheel may only offer prizes up to 10. Instead you might have a higher chance of winning should you choose that particular wheel. On most days you can also lose when spinning the wheel but occasionally there are supercharged days where prizes are guaranteed.

Key Terms

As this is a gambling promotion we're obligated to provide you with the key terms and these are as follows: 18+. Free to play. 1 spin per customer/day. Rewards available: Cash, Casino Bonus, Free Spins, Free Bet, Free Bingo Ticket. Rewards valid 7 days (exc. cash). Guaranteed reward on Supercharged Days. Reward restrictions and T&Cs apply. What this means is that you can play Instant Spins without making a deposit but you may need to deposit in order to withdraw any wins. Wagering terms may also apply to any wins. The big question is do people ever win on Instant Spins? In all the time we've played it we've found that you generally collect 3 free spins, a bingo ticket or maybe 50p to play on live casino games. We've never ever won a cash prize or found information that suggests that anyone has won a cash prize. Mind you that's not an issue that's only limited to Instant Spins. It seems gambling operators either don't like highlighting wins from their free games or no one wins the big prizes.

What Is The Best Free To Play Game?

Whilst we love the premise of free to play daily games, picking the ones that are the best is quite difficult. It doesn't matter how good a particular game is if you're not winning anything. For example we love William Hill's Bonus Drop but can't recall the last time it dished out any free spins. It's almost as though the mechanic has a set number of spins it can give out and it's been empty for the last few months. Instant Spins at Ladbrokes is quite good but this too seemed to go through a phase of not even awarding a free slot spin. Ditto with Rewards Grabber at Coral. Paddy Power's Wonder Wheel can be a bit hit and miss but we do like the mechanic involved. It's just a shame that it's Paddy Power who sit high on our blacklist due to their poor treatment of affiliates. Ultimately free games aren't a guarantee of winning anything so our advice is try them all and find the ones that you enjoy and that regularly offer rewards. Let us know if you ever win a cash prize though - we'd love to know!
