Betfair has been taking huge strides in the mobile casino gaming space in recent months, and that culminated this week in the company launching an update for their mobile casino app for Apple smartphones and tablets that effectively overhauls the entire casino experience. This has had the effect of bringing the app version of Betfair mobile casino into line with other operators that make use of the Playtech mobile platform in their apps, such as Paddy Power Mobile Casino.
While the original version of Betfair’s casino app was more than serviceable for the majority of players, the company undertook the update with two specific goals in mind. Firstly, they wanted to streamline the overall mobile gaming experience across the full range of Apple devices that utilise the App Store, including the iPhone, iPod and iPad. This means faster access to their range of mobile titles and an enhanced user experience when navigating not only the mobile casino games but also banking and other support functions.
Secondly, Betfair wanted to at least match, if not improve upon apps offered by the competition in terms of supporting the latest devices. Even something as simple as the latest iPhone having a larger screen than its predecessor gave the company something different to work with, and they wanted to ensure that their app made the best use of the hardware available in the latest iPhone and recently launched additions to the range such as the iPad Mini.
An important aspect of the update from a player’s perspective is the addition of Playtech’s mobile titles that were previously only available through the web based browser interface. App users can now access the entire range, including high definition renditions of Mobile Blackjack and Mobile Roulette, plus the likes of Jacks or Better Video Poker and the progressive Gold Rally mobile slot.
Of course, app users can also enjoy all of the benefits offered to all Betfair casino players, regardless of which device they use to access the games. This means earning comp points for play and taking advantage of a range of regular bonuses and promotions to make the player’s cash go further while enjoying some of the best mobile slots, table games and scratch cards around. Those who particularly enjoy Playtech’s extensive range of mobile casino games can also find the titles at some of our most highly recommended mobile casinos, including Bet365 Mobile Casino and Casino.com Mobile.
