Mobile Casino Experience 3.6
You can’t deny when you head over to Betfred casino on mobile that it definitely has a certain ‘British’ flavour. For one, the website is only in English and sometimes the mobile casino promotions have a habit of showing the ‘GBP’ symbols rather than the other 10 currencies they support. So if you are an international player (from anywhere but USA, Hong Kong, Turkey, France, Italy, Spain, Israel, Estonia and Cyprus, which they don’t accept) you’ll have to forgive their little Britishism.
Because if you do, you will be well rewarded by a mobile casino that has some of the very best casino games you can find online (more on those in the games section below). Regarding the actual mobile interface, it’s very easy to use, but it is all mixed it with all they provide: sportsbetting, lotto, bingo, totepool etc… but the sections you want to go to is ‘Games’, ‘Casino’, ‘Vegas’ and ‘Live Casino’. Each will then take you away from the distractions of the sports, into a page devoted to casino games and slots.
‘Games’ have the mobile IGT slots, roulette, blackjack and video poker. ‘Casino’ has the Playtech slots, mobile scratch cards, baccarat, video slots, roulette and some of the live tables. The newly added ‘Vegas’ tab gives you all the Microgaming slots and the millionaire making jackpot slots like Mega Moolah too. If you want just your live roulette, baccarat and blackjack, then ‘Live Games’ will allow you to download the Betfred mobile app that will give you a far more robust experience.
It sounds more complicated that it is. Ultimately, once you are logged in and in the home page, you can scroll a little to see the games section with everything you could possibly want.
- Great selection of Playtech, Microgaming and IGT mobile slots
- Huge range currencies to choose from
- Great live casino platform
- Also offer sports betting, poker, bingo, lotto and more
- No live chat on mobile
- Bookmark the casino pages if you want to ignore all the other products which can get distracting.
Casino Bonuses & Promotions 4.2
The casino promotions are plentiful, but you’ll have to go searching for them to find them. Because Betfred mobile casino have so many different products, they tend to have about 10 different types of welcome bonus for new players at any one time. This is also tied in with a good casino loyalty program, with the more points you collect through playing, the more cashback and bonuses you can claim.
They Betfred games welcome up offer however, gives you a great taster where you only have to bet £/€5 to get 25 free spins on a choice of Microgaming slots using bonus code VEGAS.
Otherwise, or if you want to enjoy all the casino games they have to offer, our exclusive mobile Betfred casino bonus for new players is decent 100% up to €/£/$200, doubling you money from the first deposit. The normal wagering on their general casino bonuses is at a pretty standard at 20x your bonus and deposit with a minimum £€$15 required.
As we’ve mentioned however, the promotions are bountiful throughout the seasons and weeks, whether giving away thousands on raffles, slot tournaments or cashback offers. Varied and frequent.
Security & Payments 4.2
Licensed in Gibraltar, this is one gambling juridiction that looks after it’s players and keeps it’s casino in line. So highly in demand was Gibraltar, that it had to close it’s doors to new gambling licences and it’s not no longer taking any more online casinos. So now it looks after and devotes its time to a handful of casinos and its players, including ensuring fair play and security.
Payments wise, they have a wide range via mobile, including Neteller and Skrill, which are fast and easy to deposit. Their withdrawal period is a decent but not very quick 24 hours. Still, that more than acceptable to us. What really give them extra points here is all the currencies they accept and pay in, including: AUD, CAD, DKK, EUR, GBP, MYR, NOK, NZD, SEK, SGD, ZAR.
Very welcoming for the international audience.
Software & Games 3.5
The Betfred games and slots selection might not be as vast on their mobile casino site as many others out there. That’s because instead of having a dozen casino software providers, they only have three. But what three they have chosen.
Playtech have hundreds upon hundreds of some of the biggest online slots and games. They are continuing to expand their mobile platform with a dozen of different offerings, including some of their big hitters such as The Superman The Movie, Frankie Dettori’s Magic Sevens and Gold Rally plus a range of mobile scratch cards.
IGT slots are easily some of the best around, both in real brick and mortar casinos and online. Betfred casino are one of the few mobile casinos that give the full betting range on mobile, allowing players to bet pennies/cents or more a spin.
It’s nice as with Playtech aiming for the bigger gambler, the more conservative among us still have the IGT and Microgaming games to keep us entertained. These however are not available to free play, so if you want to test them as Android slots and games first, try them at Vera & John which have the full range and then head for the Betfred mobile site (or play at both. Two very good mobile casinos.)
The Betfred live casino app is faultless, but you do have to download it to play the live casino games with as few network issues as possible. Heavy on your phone, but no more than many of the mobile apps already sitting on your iPad, iPhone or Android.
- Transformers Mobile Slot – IGT
- Treasures of Troy Mobile Slot – IGT
- The Incredible Hulk Mobile Slot – Playtech
- Gold Rally Mobile Slot – Playtech
Customer Service 3.8
Alas, the Betfred customer services do not have live chat for iPads, iPhones or Android players. But they do have an email devoted to helping mobile and tablet players if they have any technical problems using their platform, as well as a couple of phone numbers to get speak to someone directly.
Live outside of the UK and don’t want to take the cost of the call? No problem, one little text later (help to 89660) and they will call you right back to help you out. In fact, when we did use this service they were particularly friendly.
The only language they support is English however, so if you prefer emails due to the language barrier we are happy to report that they took less than 5 minutes to reply.
The Betfred casino site for mobile is not perfect. It is very British and it offers so much, it can sometimes get a little confusing to get to where you want or to catch the promotion that suits you.
However, we still think that as far as mobile platforms, Betfred mobile casino knows how to look after it’s players beautifully, creating varied promotions and providing you with some of the best casino slots and games available for iPad / iPhone or Android. And we can forgive it’s very English nature by the fact that what else can we expect from one of the oldest bookmakers in the UK? There is something to be said for staying true to your origins.
Still it has continued to welcome the modern and European world, creating a safe modern mobile casino with a huge range of currencies and payment options to suit all. Take a look for yourself.
