Here are a number of questions that Ohad Narkis was more than happy to answer:
To be honest we didn’t come up with it. We worked with a fantastic branding agency and they suggested a few names. We wanted to bring a new world of play to players and also a new fairer way of rewarding players. PlayOJO is such a different name, which came out of our intention to create a different online casino so when we heard all the suggested names, it was the only name that really stuck with us.
#2. We also liked the online casino layout. Was that designed in-house?
The branding agency set the design and then our in-house designers and developers took the design guidelines and created something super friendly and playful. We want PlayOJO to be a new world of play and that was the brief to our designers and they really ran with the ball.
#3. What have you there for new players? Can you explain how the OJO Welcome Play Package works?
OJO players get rewarded every time they play. OJOplus is an industry exclusive and returns money back to the players, win or lose, every time. Players move up levels and win Free Spins on the OJO wheel. All rewards are paid in cash and all players get a free spin for every £1 they deposit on registration. T&C
#4. What about existing players? Are there any offers for them and how do you reward your most loyal punters?
As we mentioned above, OJO rewards players every time they play. This is one of our guiding principles that we are most proud of. OJOplus is available to all players every time they play. One of the key things about OJO is to reward players as much as possible.
It was something we wanted to do before we started to build the site. One of our ideas was to make it as easy as possible for players to find everything they wanted and their favourite casino games as quickly as possible.
#6. Which game category is the most popular and which casino games exactly are the biggest hit in your online casino?
It’s early days so impossible to say what casino games are going to be the most popular, though online slots are definitely the most popular for OJO casino players.
#7. Nice collection of software developers that provide you with casino games. Are you planning to add some more of them?
We’re super happy with our software developers and of course are always looking for new ways to make OJO more playful.
#8. Which payment method is the most used in PlayOJO? How come you do not provide a Pay by Phone deposit option?
It’s pretty even, all the payment methods are used, however, we haven’t been asked for a pay by phone deposit option yet. We’re always open to making things happen for our players if more of them ask for a Pay by Phone option.
#9. How do players usually contact you for any further information or to seek for help? What are their most common problems?
We’ve got a super helpful FAQ section on PlayOJO that can answer most questions. If they need any more help they can come to customer support. We’ve only just launched so they’re haven’t been many problems.
That’s the big question! The end of the desktop has been predicted for years and yet players still play on both.
#11. What about bonuses, don’t you have any? How do you reward the casino players?
We don’t have bonuses in the conventional sense because we know players have had enough of big bonuses with even bigger wagering requirements. They want a fairer way of being rewarded. OJOplus is an industry exclusive because it rewards players every time they play, win or lose. Plus, the more players play at Playojo they get rewarded with free spins with no wagering, ever.
#12. Can you tell us what is the unique with PlayOJO and why players should try it?
I will give you 3 reasons why everyone should give a try to our new and unique brand: 1. No bonuses, 2. No wagering on anything. Ever, 3. no BS!
