There’s been something of an explosion in casino apps that have slowly been filling up our app charts. So does Betway’s casino app have what it takes to provide the ultimate convenient gaming experience?

App basics

The app can be downloaded directly from Apple’s App Store, and although Google Play don’t feature gambling apps, a quick Google search means that you can quickly access all of the games that Betway offer.

For iOS users, the app runs best on iOS 8 or later, and thankfully Betway’s app is free so that you can enjoy the £1,000 welcome bonus to get straight into the action.

First impressions

Upon loading up the app, you’re presented with a straightforward menu screen that’s divided into top games, new games, table games and slots. So whether you’re looking for mobile blackjack or the latest progressive slot title, it’s very easy to find the game of your choice.

I’m a big fan of the Hitman mobile game, so I first loaded up the Hitman slots game. This immediately sprang into life and I quickly realised that it was incredibly easy to spin the slots and pick up my winnings without getting bogged down in too many technicalities.

Advanced gaming

However, I’m a bit of a card game fan, so I was keen to see how Betway would handle the growing trend of mobile blackjack games. Thankfully, they’ve delivered a great update to this classic casino game by providing an immersive experience where a real dealer shuffles the cards, conducts you through the gameplay, and even helps you celebrate your winnings!

This is a real treat as it now means that you no longer have to leave your house to have a great card-playing tournament. In addition to this, the handy Betway Plus loyalty scheme rewards its most devoted players so that you can get some decent bonuses for your blackjack endeavours.

Other features

It’s also good to see how Betway make it easy to access their sports betting options through the app so that you can have a flutter on the horses or your favourite football team. However, seeing as there are over 100 casino games to choose from, and more being added all the time, I’m not sure how I’ll get chance to try this option!

So whether you’re into mobile blackjack, or just a quick game of slots, there’s never been an easier way to play than with Betway’s casino app.
