The Top 3 Mobile Deposit Myths That Are Based In Some Truth

Mobile PaymentAlright, so you’ve heard about mobile deposits plenty of times from us, the good and the bad. In particular, we have spoken about famous mobile deposit myths and how they impact players’ perceptions on how they operate. Most of them are outright lies, but there are a few that could be based in some sort of truth. By this, we mean that although the myth is largely false, it is for the most part a truth that has been misinterpreted or distorted in some way.

That’s why we’re here today to put things straight. Mobile deposits are a good idea and, although they have flaws, it’s time to put to rest the misconceptions once and for all. Here are the top three mobile deposit myths you’ve heard about that are based in some truth.

1. The Need For A Credit/Debit Card

Credit cardsThe whole point behind mobile deposits, people claim, is so that players do not need to use a credit or debit card to access their funds. Their phone credit could over the cost if they have enough money to do so. Generally and in theory, people are incorrect when they say mobile deposits do require a credit/debit card.

However, in one respect they are correct. When referring to those who make mobile deposits by adding the cost to their phone bill, then yes, they will theoretically need a credit or debit card (which is a by-product of owning a bank account) in order to complete any mobile deposits.

You cannot have a phone contract without either of them, because that would mean that you don’t have a bank account and the phone company needs your bank account to bill you. In this regard, it is a myth that’s technically true. On the other hand, the whole process of mobile depositing itself doesn’t need a credit card in the equation to complete any transaction.

2. Not All Casinos Have It

Even in the 21st century, it’s sadly true that some mobile casinos are a little behind the times. This means that not every mobile casino on the internet is going to have a mobile deposit service like Boku or Trustly. In fact, because mobile deposits are still in their baby stage in terms of popularity, it’s unlikely we’re going to see complete universality for another couple of years. This contradicts the fact that mobile deposits are considered to be completely accessible.

Sure, mobile deposits are accessible in that it doesn’t take much to use them, but the fact they can’t be accessed absolutely everywhere yet undermines that advantage. How are you supposed to make a mobile deposit if it isn’t facilitated? This is why the myth that not everyone can use mobile deposits is also kind of true, just not in the way you’d expect. Okay, someone with no fingertips might find it difficult too, but that’s besides the point.

3. Sometimes, It Can Be Confusing

confusionFinally, making a mobile deposit can be a trickier process than it needs to be, particularly for players who aren’t clued up on how it all works. This is easily remedied through guides and articles that explain away how mobile deposits work.

However, being completely new to it can still be disorientating, especially if you don’t know about all the companies that provide the service. The biggest one is Boku but all the others like Trustly and Zimpler present their own unique approach to making a mobile deposit that it’s easy to become bamboozled by it all. So, claiming that to make a mobile deposit is really simple, it is in some regards not entirely true either.

EGR Announces Shortlists For Annual Operator Awards — Our Picks

EGR Operator Awards 2017Thursday 26th October – that’s the date to put in your diary as it’s that night we’ll discover, which operators have been successful in their attempts to bag one of the coveted top spots at the annual EGR Operator Awards. And why are we telling you about this now? Well, the shortlist for the biggest gambling industry even has just been announced and there are some big names up for awards, as well as a few surprising ones.

Although this is an industry event, we think it’s worth players keeping an eye on the proceedings. That’s because these annual awards can be a great way to discover brilliant new casinos and poker and bingo sites to play at over the next 12 months. If they’re being recognised as part of these awards, they’ve got to be doing something very right, so there’s every reason to go and check them out for yourself.

In the interest of giving you the best chance to discover great new casinos we think you’ll love, we’ve picked out some of the categories we think are the most important and will show you their shortlists. Yet, if you want to check out the full shortlist, you’ll need to head on over to the digital EGR Magazine yourself.

Rising Star

EGR Awards Room If we’re having this conversation on the premise of finding you a great new casino or two to play at, then surely the best place to start is this awards category. The Rising Star award aims to identify and reward the best new talent making their name in the industry. This is the award given to new or relatively recently launched sites, which EGR thinks deserves some recognition for their growth in the last 12 months.

Now, we’ve certainly heard of a few of these – the live tables centric Codeta and the zero wagering requirements of PlayOJO – but there’s a number on this list that have passed even us by. Obviously it will be great to find out who EGR thinks is the best in this category and head on over for a play, but as far as we’re concerned, to have just made it onto this list mean they’re all doing something right. That’s why we reckon you could just use this shortlist as a start point to explore a few new sites.

The Rising Star Shortlist:

  • Bookee
  • Dunder
  • Genesis Global Limited
  • Ninja Casino
  • PlayOJO
  • Red Queen Casino
  • Stride Gaming
  • Wunderino

Customer Services Operator

Brand new sites that launched in the last year and are making a splash are all good and well, but what about finding some established sites, which are quietly working really hard to keep their players happy? While players are always on the lookout for the biggest promotions and freshest games, spare a minute to think of the hardworking casinos that are doggedly ensuring each of their players feels valued, has the best experience they possibly can and knows that if they run into a problem, they’ll have the operator on their side.

It’s unsurprising to see the likes of Casumo on this list, which has whole gamified system designed around delivering the best possible player experience. Also, sites like Mr Green are well known for their service, but we’re surprised to see the likes of Betsson and Karamba on this list, and we’re super interested to see which way this category swings.

Customer Services Operator Shortlist:

  • Bethard Group
  • Betsson Group
  • Casumo
  • Karamba
  • LeoVegas
  • Mr Green
  • Rank Group
  • Sky Betting & Gaming
  • tombola

Mobile Operator Of The Year

EGR Logos While, yes, there is an overarching ‘Operator of the Year’ category in the awards, you’re on a site called, which does rather suggest to us that you’re a mobile player in search of mobile sites at which to play. That’s why we figured we’d cut through the riffraff and get straight down to the category we reckon you’ll care most about: Mobile Operator of the Year.

What this category promises is to highlight not only the best casinos that are out there to be played right now, but those which are going to perform best on smartphones and tablets. It’s also worth bearing in mind that this is a category that takes into account the casinos as a whole package, meaning that (at least in theory), the list below represents the very best mobile casinos you can play on right now.

Mobile Operator Of The Year Shortlist:

  • Casumo
  • Gaming Realms
  • Jackpotjoy
  • Kindred
  • LeoVegas
  • Lottoland
  • Mr Green
  • Sky Betting & Gaming

NetEnt Drops First Footage Of Their Planet Of The Apes Slot

planet of the apes netent feature imageFinally! It’s here, the video slot trailer we’ve all been waiting for — the very first footage of NetEnt’s rendition of Planet of the Apes has landed. Those who worried whether it would live up to the hype need to worry no longer.

That’s because the slot lives up to the hype and surpasses it all in one go. We know this and it’s not even out yet! All we can say is that NetEnt have delivered on the “something extremely new” promise and then some. What is this new element that Planet of the Apes introduces? Watch the video yourself and see.

Epic Footage Is Here

It’s been very hard not to get overexcited about this new slot. Planet of the Apes is one of our favourite franchises ever and this new trilogy of films has been nothing short of stellar. So, as you can well imagine, the news NetEnt had acquired the license to make the Planet of the Apes slot really had us excited.

We were also curious as to how they were going to do it, if not a little cautious about said excitement. Yet, like we said, the trailer more than delivers its promises and we couldn’t be happier for it. Watch the video yourself by clicking the thumbnail below!

See what we mean? Those reels are a thing of beauty and really encapsulate what NetEnt were saying when they promised to deliver something new. A 10×3 slot reel that takes what could have been an otherwise decent slot and truly makes it epic. Essentially, it’s two games in one, each reflecting the first two films of the franchise. We know that we often say it, but we honestly think NetEnt have truly outdone themselves this time.

Rise And Dawn

planet of the apes netent slot screenshotA brief look at the video might confuse some people.  It appears that two slots have been bashed together to make one super-slot so that the reel is 10 columns long. While it’s true that two slots are brought together as one, they can still be considered as two separate ones. On one side is Rise, representing Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and on the other is Dawn, representing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. This means that a lot of computer generated apes will be running across the reels — watch out!

In all seriousness, there is more to the double-reel than just being different. According to the video description, it’s supposed to reflect the main ape Caesar’s journey across the two films. This means there are a fair few clips from the films themselves, not to mention an atmospheric score plus a lot of iconography found in both. A lot of the actors in each installment are used as scatter and wild symbols too. Align them up right and you could be in for one of the slots many special add-ons.

Major Add-Ons

planet of the apes netent logoThese add-ons (or features) are plentiful, thanks to the double-reel component of the slot. Free spins, added bonus games, scatter and substitute symbols, and a stacked wild feature that makes the game far more exciting that it otherwise would be. And it’s already pretty exciting for the dual feature alone.

All of these features will be available to play on mobile as well as desktop, too, so there’s no need for worry on that front. Be sure to catch Planet of the Apes at every NetEnt casino from 23rd October onwards. In the mean time, why not re-watch the Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Ape films?

Divine Slots Casino Review — Tonnes Of Potential, But Not Quite There Yet

Divine Slots LogoOver the past few months, Jumpman Gaming have been launching new casinos left, right and centre. The brand, which is arguably better known for their many bingo sites, actually has over five years experience in the online gaming industry. That means it’s safe to say they know what players want and need.

This all bodes well for their newest site — Divine Slots. Launched only a couple of weeks ago, the casino boasts a colourful design and is available across all devices. Furthermore, the games roster seems to be packed full of the biggest slot brands. On first impressions, we’ve got a good feeling about Divine Slots, so read on to see if it lived up to expectations.


Casino Summary
OperatorJumpman Gaming
Games250 games, including video slots, roulette, blackjack, and instant win titles
Welcome Bonus100% deposit match bonus, up to £200 + 20 free spins on Starburst
Other BonusesSecond and Third Deposit Match Bonuses, cashback, happy hours, free spins, tournaments
Wagering requirements65x
BankingMastercard, Visa, Maestro, Visa Debit, PayPal, Paysafecard, Pay by Mobile


Divine Slots has a roster of over 250 games and whilst the site is predominately focused on slots, there are a handful of table game and instant win titles too. The majority of games are available across all devices, which is perfect for those who love the play on the go. However, the layout of the site means finding something to play can be a bit of a chore.

Aside from the ‘hot slots’ and ‘newest’ categories, players will have to scroll through an A-Z list to view all of the site’s games. We much prefer it when games are sorted thematically, of via software developer. That being said, the site does offer a ‘my favourites’ page, where you can find your most recently played games.


Divine Spins Games on LaptopA roster of 250 games may not sound like a particularly extensive collection of games and to be honest it’s not. However, the site does benefit from having a variety of different software developers on board. Players can enjoy titles from the likes of NetEnt, NextGen, Elk Studios and Eyecon, which means there’s a wide range of different themes, wager sizes and paylines available. Popular slots at the site include modern classics such as Starburst and Fluffy Favourites, as well as new games such as Emoji Planet.

Other Games

As we mentioned earlier and as the casino’s name suggests, Divine Slots is primarily a slots site. This means that although they do offer some table games, there’s not many and they’re not the most compelling. Still, there are a couple of roulette and blackjack titles, and one Deuces Wild game. The good news is that these are all available on mobile as well as desktop.

Perhaps more interesting is the casino’s range of instant win games. Players can enjoy titles such as Super Cash Buster, a variant of Keno and the highly popular bingo-slot hybrid Slingo.

Bonuses And Promotions

Welcome Bonuses

Divine Spins Welcome BonusDivine Slots offers all new players a three part welcome package worth up to £600. Your first bonus will be awarded to you the minute you make your first deposit over £10 and this will be a 100% deposit match bonus, up to £200, plus 20 free spins on NetEnt’s Starburst.

Unlike most sites, the quality of the welcome bonuses doesn’t drop off after you’ve made your first deposit. In fact, at Divine Slots you’ll receive the exact same offer on your second and third deposits. That means there’s a further two 100% deposit match bonuses to claim, which are worth up to £200 each, and an extra 40 free spins too. We also must mention that the welcome package can be claimed no matter which depositing method you use, which means that pay by phone users are eligible too — hurrah!

There is one downside to Divine Slots welcome package, however and, as you may have guessed, it’s to do with wagering requirements. The casino has set these at an unreasonably high rate of 65x, so whilst the welcome bonuses may sound appealing at first, it’s important to consider how much you’ll have to spend to see any of your winnings making their way back to you.

Other Promotions

ADivine Slots Spinathonlthough we might be inclined to say it’s best to avoid the casino’s welcome bonus, the good news is that there’s plenty other promotions to cash in on. Throughout the week there are opportunities to receive extra free spins, cashback and more. Plus, the casino also have a VIP scheme, which rewards loyal players, and a weekly event where there’s £1,000 up for grabs!

Divine Slots’ Spinathon event runs from Sunday to Saturday and it rewards the top 25 players at the site with cash prizes. Players earn points as they play to move up the leader-board, with the first place winner taking home £200, and the second and third place players taking home £125 each.


Mobile PaymentThe banking system at Divine Slots may be one of the easiest we’ve ever dealt with. Players can fund their account in a matter of seconds and they can do it from both mobile and desktop devices. You can deposit at Divine Slots via Mastercard, Maestro, Visa, Visa Debit, PayPal, Paysafecard or Pay by Phone.

We know the inclusion of a phone billing service will be music to the ears of our readers, but we’re a little disappointed that there’s no e-wallet service such as Neteller or Skrill available. We think this could be detrimental to the site’s success, as so many online gaming fans use these kinds of depositing methods.

At Divine Slots you can deposit a minimum of £10 each time and you can fund your account with up to £5,000 per day. The site also has a minimum withdrawal limit of £30 and withdrawals can be made via credit/debit card or PayPal.

Who Should Play At Divine Slots Casino?

Whilst there were certain features of Divine Slots we loved, there are some issues with the casino that we can’t just get over. Mainly, the incredibly high wagering requirements, which make all of the site’s bonuses more or less redundant. We understand that casinos need to make sure that players aren’t taking advantage of promotions and free spins, but to have to spend 65x the bonus amount to ever receive anything back seems extortionate.

Perhaps, we could forgive Divine Slots if they had more exclusive content on offer. We love the fact that the site accepts pay by phone deposits, but we’re not convinced that the casino is actually offering anything that players can’t find elsewhere — somewhere with much lower wagering requirements. For these reason, it’s hard to recommend Divine Slots to any sort of player at the moment. We expected more from Jumpman Gaming and we hope they sort themselves out soon!

Wheel of Fortune On Tour MapTo be involved with this promotion, all you really need to do is head over to Mr Green casino and spin the highly popular Wheel of Fortune On Tour slot.

The slot by IGT includes a level-up feature and it’s vital to understand how this works if you want to make sure you walk away with a prize this week. Within the game, players are rewarded with one fuel point for every non-triggering bonus symbol that lands on their reels. The bonus symbol is represented by an RV and for every ten fuel points you’ll fill your petrol tank. Alternatively, if you find three bonus symbols on your reels, the tank will automatically fill up.

Every time you fill the fuel tank, the Wheelmobile will move one space along the slot’s map. This is where things get interesting in terms of the promotion, as every time you move one space on the map in the slot, you’ll also move one space up the promotional leader-board.

So, to win big in this event, you simply have to play the game! We love the simplicity of this promotion, as it means that players aren’t forced into spending a lot of money. Wheel of Fortune On Tour can be played for as little as 50p a spin and the game boasts a generous 96.6% RTP. This means that you could be bagging some big wins within the slot, at the same time as working your way up the leader-board.

The winners of this promotion will be announced on the 15th of September and all cash prizes will be credited this day too. As the prizes are ‘real cash’, they’re also not tied to any wagering requirements, so you can withdraw them straightaway. So, if you want to get your hands on a share of 15k this week, head over to Mr Green tomorrow and start spinning IGT’s Wheel of Fortune on Tour!

Everything We Know About NextGen’s New Lightning Gems Slot

Lightning Gems by NextGen LogoWhen NextGen tells us they’re releasing a new title, we’re almost always excited. Although there are many software developers around with a similar, if not higher, level of talent, there’s something about the NextGen games that makes them stand out from the crowd. Plus, they’re one of the most popular brands around, which means their games are available at tonnes of casinos, including many which allow pay by phone deposits.

So, as you can already imagine, when the team announced their new Lightening Gems slot, we were over the moon. The game, which is due to hit UK casinos on the 20th of September, features a fantasy theme, and benefits from three great bonus rounds. Whilst we still have a couple more weeks to wait until we’re able to play the game, luckily we’ve managed to get hold of some insider info, so read on to learn what you can expect from this new game.

The Game


Lightning Gems is a 5 reel slot with 10 paylines and it’s playable from as little as 15p a spin, but going all the way up to £150. The game is set for release on the 20th of September, and it will be available on both mobile and desktop, at all good NextGen and NYX casinos.

Visually, Lightning Gems is not the most attractive slot around. However, we appreciate that the brand have stuck with the fantasy theme throughout. The reels hang against a starry night sky and symbols include a collection of coloured gemstones, as well as the more traditional hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds values. Each symbol, however, is ornate, complete with a gold or silver surround, and will twinkle during the game.

Lightning Gems on MobileThe game also benefits from both a wild and a scatter symbol. The wild is represented by a golden sun, and this substitutes for all other symbols apart from the scatter. It’s also the game’s highest paying symbol, rewarding players with 500 coins for a five-of-a-kind combination.

Futhermore, there are two bonus features in Lightning Gems which are centered around the wild symbols. Both features can be triggered randomly during the base game, and we have to say they seem to be particularly lucrative.

First of all, we have the Wild Wins feature. This bonus will reward players with extra wilds on their reels which, of course, makes creating a winning combination much easier. Secondly the game also includes a Wild Nudge feature. As the name suggests, this bonus allows players to ‘nudge’ wilds into a winning position, provided they have just missed out on creating a combination.

Lightning Gems GameplayLast, but not least, Lightning Wilds also benefits from a free spins round, which is triggered when three or more scatters appear anywhere on the reels. Players will be awarded with 10 free spins initially, although the round can be re-triggered by collecting more scatters. Additionally, during the free spins round there will be 10 wild symbols added to each reel. This means that in total, you’ll have 50 extra wilds in play!

Our Verdict and Where to Play

Approved StampWhilst Lightning Gems is a fairly simple slot, it’s incredibly fun. This is because the game is built around the wild symbol. Instead of introducing convoluted bonus games, NextGen have made it so that every bonus feature simply gives players more chances to collect wilds, and therefore have a greater chance of creating a winning combination.

The maximum win of this slot is 2,000x your wager, which makes it a medium to high variance game. That being said, wins do come fairly regularly, yet you may have to wait a while for an impressive payout.

As we mentioned earlier, one of the best things about NextGen slots is that they’re readily available. Many casinos carry the brand and so it means the come the 20th of September, you should be able to play Lightning Gems at a plethora of sites.

If you’re interested in playing the game, we’d recommend visiting a Nektan casino, such as GoWin or Kerching. These sites are quick to update their games roster, which means they’ll have it ready for you to play the minute it’s launched! Plus, all Nektan casinos accept Boku deposits, which we know is important to our readers!

Emoji Planet Mobile Slot Reviewed — The Ultimate Form Of Expressions!

Emoji Planet Feature ImageIf there is one thing that year 2017 will be remembered for, it will be for the rise of something we all love — the Emojis! No matter who you are, you can’t deny that all your messages are filled with them. Don’t believe me? Go on then, take out your phone and check your messages… Told you so! The whole craze began in 2015 and that year ended with the Oxford Dictionaries declaring ‘pictograph’ as the Word of the Year. Or, in other words, emojis.

In my opinion, there cannot be a better time for NetEnt to get on the Emoji hype train. Emoji Planet is packed with tons of Wilds and captivating bonus features. If I had to choose a slot that would remind me of how great 2017 was, Emoji Planet would be it!


With Emoji Planet, NetEnt has shaken things up a bit and has integrated a slightly eccentric 6×5 reel layout to the game. They have also ditched the traditional payline system and instead opted to reward players when they form clusters of the same symbols. To form a winning cluster, you will need a minimum of five symbols and as expected, the bigger the winning cluster, the higher your wins.

Emoji Planet Gameplay

Budget wise, this slot accepts anything from 20p all the way up to £200 per spin. This wide range should be able to accommodate both casual players and slots enthusiasts without any issues. The entire range of the wagers can be customized by selecting the preferred coin value on the bottom of your reels.

Emoji Planet Cluster Highlight

Based on the payout frequencies and sizes, I would characterize this game as medium variance. You will be experiencing decent payout frequencies and sizes, but don’t get too complacent though. When luck is not on your side, you may have to go through a series of non-winning spins.

Bonus Features

Given the fact that Emoji Planet utilizes the cluster system rather than paylines, Wilds matter a lot more in this game. The Wild symbols comes in the form of the Star emoji, and as usual, they will replace any other emojis to create cluster wins.

Another simple feature present in this slot is the Avalanche feature. Essentially, this feature gives you a second chance of creating a new winning cluster right after you have won something. After each win, new symbols will Avalanche into your reels replacing the winning cluster.

Emoji Planet Pizza Feature

The Emoji Meter feature is where all the emotions start pouring. In total, there are five emoji meters and after every win, the meters are filled up with the corresponding emojis from the win. Once the meters are filled up, you will trigger a bonus round of boosted spins.

Emoji Planet Big Bomb Cluster

The details are as follows:

  • Bomb Feature – Once the Bomb feature is triggered, eight emojis on your reels will be destroyed and you will be awarded a cash prize between 40 and 800 times your spin wager
  • Pizza Feature – A 3×3 cluster of symbols will appear on your reels creating a cluster
  • Kiss Mark Feature – You will be granted Sticky Wilds randomly on your reels and all of them come with three lives; they lose a live whenever they are responsible for a win
  • Rocket Feature – A stack of 10 Wild symbols appear on and above one of your reels, creating a massive cluster win
  • Two Hearts Feature – All your wins will be subject to a win multiplier that depends on how many times you have filled up the emoji meters


As the name of this slot suggests, every visual element is designed after emojis. If you have been using emojis for a while now, you will recognize the usual smiley face, kisses, hearts, aliens and poo emojis as symbols. The theme that NetEnt has chosen for this game is simple, but brilliant at the same time. What impressed me most is what they have made out of it.

Emoji Planet Big Cluster

Whole reels have been redesigned and on top of that, they have added life to all the emojis. Speaking of which, there are tonnes of animations in this game. Even before you start playing, you will be entertained by an introductory animation that shows an emoji travelling through time. What’s more to say?

Emoji Planet Super Big Win

Emoji Planet can be played on PC’s and on mobile devices of different platforms. Players who are on the go will love this game as it is highly optimized for mobile gameplay. It is a wonder how NetEnt could make a 6×5 reel fit so perfectly on a mobile screen…

To sum it up…

The Emoji Planet slot is simply awesome. After playing it for a while, it’s easy to see how many people have fallen in love with it. To me, this slot is not just a game, in a way, it is an extension of our lives. Think about it, this game exhibits its emotions and experiences in the form of emojis – something that all of us can relate to.

For instance, don’t you think that the fact that Emoji Planet paying out 1,000 times your spin wager when you cover your reels in smiley faces is a match made in heaven? Right now, I am very inclined to say that Emoji Planet is 2017’s greatest creations!

Live Cabaret Performance At LeoVegas And Other Casinos Today

cabaretHave you ever imagined you could play at an online casino, yet feel like you were at a real land-based casino instead? We’re not just talking about online casino games, nor are we anticipating virtual reality casinos. Authentic Gaming offers something in between, yet entirely different. Today, on the 31st August, players at LeoVegas and numerous other casinos will be able to experience some land-based casino charm.

Live cabaret performance will be exclusively broadcast from The Casino International at Hilton Batumi, Georgia. This was made possible by Authentic Gaming, a company founded in 2015 and focusing on merging the worlds of land-based and online casinos together.

Join the casino action at LeoVegas, Mr Green or one of the Kindred Group casinos at 23:00 CEST today. A live performance of Paris Cabaret Group will entertain you while you’re playing Authentic Roulette!

Authentic Gaming: Merging Land-based And Online Casinos

authentic gaming logoAuthentic Gaming is the first and only provider of online casino games that are broadcast directly from land-based casinos. It’s similar to live dealer table games in a way. For example, the players see a real dealer shuffling real cards on a real casino table. However, the game is actually taking place at one of the real premium casinos around the world. Authentic Gaming places the player right in the middle of the casino ground and that’s unique.

Such players are able to converse with other players and the dealer via HD cameras, which provide quality video and audio footage. They’re also able to see other tables in the background. The sounds of a real casino make the experience more immersive, too. Finally, Authentic Gaming offers other entertainment that’s usual to land-based casinos, but still foreign to online casinos.

We’re talking about ‘LIVE! Entertainment’, a product that broadcasts various events directly from the same casino the games are taking place at. The event this evening is a perfect example of that. Not only can gamblers play their games, they can watch a real concert, performance or similar event while they play. Everything is going on in real time and this brings the worlds of real and online casinos so much closer to one another.

The product has launched just this year, but it’s a unique solution to those, who want more of a land-based casino experience at their home. Considering the number of people who want just that, ‘LIVE! Entertainment’ has proven to be a success.

Expect More From LIVE! Entertainment In The Future

Leo Vegas logoToday’s event is just one of many such live entertainment events that we will undoubtedly be able to enjoy in the future. At the moment Authentic Gaming doesn’t have many games on offer, however. The company’s flagship game – Authentic Roulette – is the only title so far that’s available in all the partner casinos online. With that said, it’s the best online roulette you’ll get your hands on today.

So, visit LeoVegas or Mr Green (one of the newest online casinos to provide Authentic Roulette and live entertainment from Authentic Gaming) this evening at 23:00 CEST. Spin the wheel in the company of real casino players and Paris Cabaret Group at The Casino International in Hilton Hotel. We can guarantee that you’ll come back for more!

The (Few) Risks Associated With Making Phone Bill Deposits

pay by phone logoA little while ago, we published a post which informed players about the red flags you should look out for when using casinos which offer mobile one bill depositing. However, we figured that the topic of security when it comes to mobile phone bill depositing was so broad and involved that it deserved a whole post dedicated to it.

That’s why we’re here today to talk about some of the risks of mobile depositing and what you as a player can do to protect yourself against them. That said, we’d stress that using SMS payments is one of the safest ways you can make deposits at a mobile casino, as with everything when using the internet, it pays to know what you’re getting yourself into.

Lack Of License

Casino LicensesOne of the most important things to look for before you make a deposit with your phone bill at a mobile casino (or even signing up, if we’re honest about it) is that the site you’re playing at has a license that’s valid in the country you’re playing. For casinos to operate legally in the UK, they must hold a license from the UK Gambling Commission – it used to be that you could run an online casino in the UK while licensed elsewhere, but that’s now changed.

These licenses mean that they are regulated by the UK government and subject to the stringent checks that come along with this. This means that the games are fair, the service is honest, and the depositing options all work like they should.

Poor SSL Encryption

You want to keep your money and personal information safe when you’re gambling online, which is why it’s vitally important that the SSL encryption offered by the casino you’re playing at. Also, it should be decent enough to ensure that all the data you share with a casino is protected. Any protected casino should display which encryption they use at the bottom of their homepage.

It’s worth pointing out that although poor encryption can prove to be quite an issue for phone bill depositors, it’s far less of a problem than if you’d deposited with any number of other options. If you bank or credit card details got into the wrong hands, you would have some real trouble on your hands. :Luckily, with SMS payments, you don’t have to share that kind of information to make a deposit.

Slow/No Withdrawals

withdraw money atmOne of the most annoying things for players about mobile phone bill deposits is that although they’re one of the best depositing methods for mobile casinos, they are not, in themselves, a withdrawal option. This means that those using SMS deposits rely on methods like cheques and bank transfers to withdraw their cash. This throws up two issues.

Firstly, to receive a cheque or bank transfer, you need to share personal and banking information, opening yourself up to risks from unscrupulous casinos (see all the issues above). Moreover, it can be hard to tell if a casino has made a payment via these methods, with delays on transfers and cheques ‘getting lost in the mail,’ it’s with the withdrawals that there’s real space for trouble.

How To Protect Yourself

So, how can you stay safe in the face of these concerns? Well, your best bet is to play only at licensed, regulated and tried and trusted casinos to begin with. Do your research, find out if the casino you’re thinking of depositing at has a license and if it’s encrypted.

Maybe most importantly, find out what other players have to say about things like the service and withdrawals. There’s no need to rush into making mobile phone bill deposits, so take your time, and find mobile phone bill deposit casinos which are safe to play at.
