Don’t you just hate it when you fancy a quick game of poker, but you’re unable to do so because you’re out? Well, that doesn’t have to be an issue for you any more, according to Smart Mobile Casino, an online gaming site from Nektan. Over the years, this gaming giant has launched many casinos, with their recent focus being on mobile friendly software. We can see this not only from the red interface presented before us, but from Touch Lucky Casino as well. The idea is that customers are able to connect with hot new games instantly, but does the hype live up to the reality once you get started?
As we’ve already mentioned, this website is owned by Nektan, and so it adheres to many regulations they themselves have in place. However, the governing bodies in place don’t stop there, as there’s also licenses from the UK Gambling Commission and The Government of Gibraltar. They both ensure that the website adheres to the rules set out in the Gambling Act of 2005. What is more, you also have encryption technology at work here, to make sure that your personal information is protected.
When it comes to accessibility, Smart Mobile allows customers from the UK, Ireland, Australia, and Sweden, with a few others included also. However, many other countries, a great deal more than those that can play, are prohibited. Even though Smart Mobile doesn’t specifically list them, we know that the likes of Russia and the US won’t be able to join due to their gambling laws.
When we first looked at this section, we were horrified at how little Nektan was offering, with only three rewards listed, but then we selected one of them. The interface then changed into the familiar Nektan layout we always see, and with it came a whole host of other bonuses, as well as the VIP membership. We’re relieved, as for a second there this 2016 launched casino looked to be on its last legs.
All newbies get £5 free when they join, without needing to allocate any cash, though they’ll be slapped with a steep wagering requirement of 100x, which is extremely high when compared with the 30x wagering requirement of the other welcome bonus. This secondary offering delivers 50 free spins on Starburst, as well as up to £500 in extra monies. To gain that amount, you’ll need to allocate at least £10 across three different deposits, with the bonuses worked out as 200%, 100%, and 50%.
Should you be interested in becoming a high roller, part of the elite, you’ll need to look at the Privileged section of Smart Mobile. Here you’ll find the details of what prizes you can expect to appear once you transition from standard gamer to special, however there’s no details on how to join, other than to receive an invite. Therefore, we assume that you need to put in the hours for the support team to notice your dedication to the Smart Mobile brand.
Nektan doesn’t just deliver on the promotional materials front, but they do so when it comes to the games also, supplying users with software from WMS, Lightning Box Games, and NetEnt. These are also big league companies, which ultimately means that customers will always get a first class playthrough when sampling these titles, and sample you can. This is thanks to the availability of demo versions, of which Smart Mobile is filled, though their Live Casino doesn’t allow for this test drive prior to joining.
All of the activities are listed just under the promotions, as is common with other Nektan sites, and they’ll allow you to switch from play for fun to play for real money in an instant. It’s all smoothly designed to maintain a sense of ease about the brand, which is what Nektan is prided for by many of its customers. In regards to the types of games involved, there’s progressive jackpots, slot machines, instant wins, and casino favourites all vying for your attention. As you’d expect with Nektan, given their past and present platforms, they rarely change their MO.
If you’re ready to flash your cash, you’re going to need to choose from the payment methods listed, of which there’s several. Players will be able to choose between credit/debit cards, such as Visa and Mastercard, as well as ewallets, such as Skrill and Neteller. Having this ability to choose provides a more convenient registration process, and ultimately a more enjoyable banking experience.
That being said, while each methods has its own pros and cons, there’s some aspects of the transactions that stay the same, e.g. how long it takes for a withdrawal. This can be up to as many as five working days, with the monthly limit being a low £5,000. Still, if you’ve played with Nektan before, you’ll know this is the way they do all their online casino transactions, which promotes sameness across the company. As far as we know, no fees are applied to the processes, though some reviews have stated otherwise in the past. Currency wise, EUR, GBP, and CAD are permitted, as well as a few other monies.
The Support section, as always, is at the top of the homepage, clearly made visible to help users find exactly what they’re looking for. Before using the services mentioned, we’d suggest reading through the FAQs, just in case the answer is hidden within the information there. If, however it isn’t, you have an email address, a telephone number, and live chat to utilise. None of these appear to be governed by time restrictions, though other Nektan sites are known to have limits on service between 8am and midnight. Therefore, we have to be skeptical about how accessible these services are at unusual hours.
Smart Mobile Casino, like every other Nektan brand, serves a section of the online gambling community well; it delivers games within a safe environment. What is more, it does so while providing a reasonable level of customer service. That being said, there’s no originality or innovation here, which means that these labels could soon lose their impact as the rest of the market progresses. However, for now Smart Mobile, and others, are doing rather well. Another job well done by Nektan.
