Playing Bet365 Casino from your mobile device has just got even better thanks to the brand new upgrade to the client software. Developed by the team at Playtech, this new client software bet365-mobile-appoffers mobile customers arguably the most complete and convenient casino gaming experience.

The software is available to download as a new customer (if you want to sign up, click here for the latest Bet365 casino bonus information) or an existing user as an upgrade from the App Store if you have an iOS device. Alternatively, you can download the software direct from Bet365 on an Android mobile device.

Bet365 are the first company to trial the new Playtech mobile casino application with good reason. In house testing by the company has shown that using the new app to load up your chosen casino games is three times quicker than doing so in a HTML5 environment.

Why develop a new Bet365 Mobile casino app?

Of course, one of the key questions many Bet365 mobile casino players may ask is why bother upgrading the software when the one that was already in placed worked fine?

To answer that, Playtech have cited research that suggests that 89% of time spent on mobile devices isn’t spent accessing sites via a browser, but is instead used via a dedicated app. Translating this into the world of casino gaming, this implies that the vast majority of Bet365 Mobile Casino users are likely to access the casino via an app, rather than the HTML5 browser-based casino.

The upshot of this is, most Bet365 Mobile Casino players, play via an app, so Bet365 in conjunction with Playtech wanted to make sure that their app was at the cutting edge when it came to mobile gaming.

“Playtech has invested significantly in native technologies, backing up our strategy to provide the best solutions for our partners and their players.

“The instant and sticky native play functionality and new features [of the upgraded software] will ensure our licensees can drive player values and make our new app the best on the market today.”

Certainly, those in control of key decisions and strategic thinking at Bet365 were delighted with the software. Christian Bogstrand, Chief Executive and Head of Gaming for Hillside (Gibraltar) Ltd, who own the Bet365 company, revealed:

“We have worked closely with Playtech on the development of the new casino native app, ensuring we provide high quality content with a much faster and improved gaming experience.”

How does the new Bet365 App shape up for customers?

Now, of course the development company and Bet365 are going to proclaim that their newly developed app is the best thing since sliced bread, but how does it actually stand up when bet365-mobile-app-3scrutinised more closely by someone very familiar with the old mobile software?

With that in mind, I decided to take a closer look at the newly upgraded Bet365 Mobile Casino app to give you a closer look at how it plays and looks.

The first thing is the download itself. It is easy to find in the App Store (I used an iOS 10 upgraded iPad for the review) and having accessed the software on a Samsung Galaxy Tab, it is equally easy to find and download for Android from the Bet365 site itself. So locating the software and downloading it is quick and easy.

After the initial installation has finished and you have loaded the software up for the first time (setting permissions to allow the app to locate where you are and whether it can notify you) the load up time for the app does certainly seem to be considerably quicker than the older app.

On the former app, the Bet365 Casino black log in screen would display for a while as the app uploaded, but on the newer app there is no such delay. You get a brief flicker of the Bet365 logo on a black screen, then a message while the app checks for updates and then the home screen appears.

The design of the home screen won’t look unfamiliar to existing Bet365 Mobile Casino players as with the new upgrade, Playtech have elected to keep the general feel of the older app. However, there are three simple tabs at the top of the screen which allow you access to three key areas of gaming – Video Slots, Classic Slots and Table and Card games.

Through these tabs you can access the vast majority of the games and there are a good number of games available to play on the site. In the iOS version for iPad, there are the following 105 games available to play in each of the three categories:

  • Video Slots –  Nostradamus, Age of the Gods, Age of the Gods Furious Four, Age of the Gods King of Olympus, Leprechaun’s Luck, Catwalk, Wacky Waters, Chests of Plenty, Funky Fruits, bet365-mobile-app-4Hawaiian Treasure, Multiplier Madness (Progressive), Nian Nian You Yu, The Glass Slipper, The Winnings of Oz, Top Gun, Dragon Kingdom, Magical Stacks, Purple Hot, Thor The Mighty Avenger, Wild Spirit, Mr Cashback, Life of Brian, Funky Fruits Farm, Cat in Vegas, Vikingmania, Fairest of Them All, Greatest Odyssey, Dolphin Reef, Football Rules, Fortunate 5, Piggies and the Wolf, Wings of Gold, Wu ong, Cherry Love, Arctic Treasure, Bounty of the Beanstalk, Cops N Bandits, Fortunes of the Fox, Golden Games, Rocky, Thai Temple, The Riches of Don Quixote, X-Men, Cat Queen, Heart of the Jungle, Sinbad’s Golden Voyage, Arctic Adventure, Iron Man 3, Bonus Bears, Esmerelda, Wild Gambler, Amazon Wild, Battle of the Gods, Secrets of the Amazon, Easter Surprise, Frankie Dettori’s Magic 7 (Progressive), Dr Lovemore, Sherlock Mystery, Pharoah’s Secrets, Jackpot Giant (Progressive), Zhao Cai Jin Bao, Silent Samurai, Ice Run, White King, Thai Paradise, Panther Moon, Plenty O’Fortune, Samba Brazil, Captain’s Treasure, The Avengers, The Three Musketeers, Gladiator Jackpot (Progressive), Sweet Party, Geisha’s Story, Streak of Luck, Football Carnival, Penguin Vacation, Everybody’s Jackpot, Spiderman, Beach Life (Progressive), Irish Luck, Iron Man 2, Hulk, Halloween Fortune, Santa Surprise, A Night Out, Fei Cui Gong Zhu, Innocence or Temptation and Spamalot (Progressive) (89 in total)

How do the games play?

Once again, there is good news for players in that clicking on the game and seeing it load up does seem to be considerably faster than the older app. It may only be a small difference, but you do bet365-mobile-app-5get the feeling that this new version of the app is not just considerably quicker, but also smoother too.

Playing a slot is generally the same as it always was on your chosen mobile device but there is no denying that the structure surrounding each of the games is much improved.

Is it worth updating or joining?

Given the wealth of games available immediately on release date and the improvements outlined above, the new Bet365 Mobile app is well worth upgrading to, or if you are not yet a member, signing up to experience. Never has mobile casino gaming been quicker or easier to follow and with a number of high quality games upon release, you won’t be short of games to try out on whatever mobile device you log in from.
