The same as with the Microgaming, PlayTech is a large company, online casinos software supplier. Perhaps, they rank second after Microgaming in terms of reputation and number of online casinos. The Company was valued 1 billion USD, which speaks about its high reputation and trust level. As far as I could find in the net, there are not so many mobile casinos using PlayTech software so far, but this company has always been distinguished by its active development, that is why I am sure that their quantity will increase sooner than later. Three mobile casinos can be found with the PlayTech software so far: Golden Palace, Tropez Mobile Casino, XXL Club Casino.
XXL Club Casino is the best casino from the point of view of support. One more pleasant detail is that visiting the online casino site I found a pop-up banner, promising 10USD no deposit mobile casino bonus. In a minute I got my bonus but lost it in slots as quickly as received (betting 2USD per spin, so, this is not a wonder). After that, as I usually do in PlayTech casinos, I rejected the bonuses (mobile casino support was happy to handle my request), made a deposit and started playing my favourite mobile casino games. I have to say that the registration and the casino deposit were made via online casino website, though it is possible also via the phone.
Mobile casino wagering results:
I started playing with black jack. The minimum stake, as it is in Microgaming software mobile casinos is rather high – two USD, so I had no choice but to playing this stake. The results were very interesting: 57 gains (!), 38 losses and 5 pushes. A rather obvious distortion in my favor, which gave me the gain of 33 USD. I must note that there were three losses at a time and 8 gains (with the only push deal in the middle). The number of blackjacks was within the norm, it was four. With doubling the results were not very impressive – I won only two out of seven deals (the probability of the gain at doubling is over 50%). Generally, it is an ambiguous result: on one side I have won a lot, on the other side – I have won too much as for testing the casino. There is also something wrong with the doublings (perhaps, it is for compensation?).
Videopoker was the second mobile casino game for the testing. The game was the standard “Jack or better” with a normal payment table 6/9. Playtech mobile casinos have wider the range of stakes than it is in Microgaming mobile casinos – coins from 0.05 USD to 5 USD. I played five coins of USD 0.25. The results were again odd: 14 pairs, 15 – two pairs, 12 treys, not a single street or flash and three fulls. In some fantastic way my pairs turned into treys and full-houses, there is no other way to explain such statistics. With such a cut of cards the gain of 10 USD is not a wonder. The doubles sprawled in equal parts – the half was a gain, the half was a loss. The PlayTech has also one more opportunity to double just a half of the gain in the videopoker.
Just for fun I loaded a European roulette of this mobile casino. I played just a few spins – just to have a look. First, you are running with the joystick across the stakes field to place the bets. Then you pressing the spin button you would see the wheel and then when the ball landed you would see the results. It is clear that the bets are made longer than in the offline mode, especially if they are several. The advantage of this mobile casino roulette game is that there is an option to make blank spins, but disadvantage is that the minimum bet amount of 2 USD even betting on the numbers. I have not being playing too many deals of this funny mobile casino game keeping in mined Albert Einstein conclusion: “You cannot beat a roulette table unless you steal money from it”.
Implicitly, I was lucky, otherwise such successful gains and distortions can not be explained. On the other hand, there is nothing bad to say, I like the PlayTech online casinos, the game there is rather fair and I don’t see any reasons for any problems in the mobile casino versions. The graphics in the mobile casino was nice, the set of games was rather large. The interface is useful for a joystick, which is convenient. The game speed is normal like in Microgaming mobile casinos, about half an hour per 100 hands. The traffic was also within the limits of 150 Kb per 100 hands and about 200 Kb the downloading.
