This is my review of Pocket Play Casino.
In English, there is a saying about knowing something like the back of your hand. I have always regarded this saying as stupid because it simply does not make a lot of sense. What might be even more stupid, however, is the Finnish equivalent of said saying. In Finland, we talk about “knowing something like we do our own pockets.” When you think about, do most of us really know the back of our hands or our pockets all that well? The only thing I do know is that my pockets usually contain my mobile phone, my keys, and my wallet, and I would venture a guess that it is our mobile phones that Pocket Play Casino, too, is mostly focused on.
Carrying our online casinos with us has become a regular affair for the majority of casino customers, and Pocket Play Casino knows this. It was founded in 2020 by a company called Deep Dive Tech B.V. who I admit I had never heard of before this review.
How good of a job has Deep Dive Tech done with Pocket Play Casino? We are going to find out!
Looks and feel of Pocket Play Casino
As I already hinted, Pocket Play is mostly focused on mobile gaming. Fortunately, this is not the whole truth, though, as mobile-first casinos do always emphasise desktop gaming, too. It is just that they have made sure that their interface is fit for the smallest of screens and the lowest powered hardware as well.
Pocket Play is powered by the popular Every Matrix platform and makes it easy for players to navigate the site. Everything looks simple, yet good at the same time, and every game provider has been listed on the site to allow effortless game filtering.
Bonuses and rewards
At Pocket Play, the player’s proverbial engine starts with a 100% bonus up to 100 euro + 100 extra spins. The free spins are split to be used on Book of Dead over the course of five days. The terms for this welcome offer are remarkable as well as you only have to complete your low 30x wagering if you first lose your real money balance. In proper casino lingo, this kind of a bonus is called either a parachute bonus or a non-sticky bonus as your bonus is only there to catch you fall instead of forcing you to abide by strict rules. What is more, the wagering requirements for extra spins are only 10x!
Do take into consideration that these were the terms when I visited Pocket Play for this review. It could very well be that terms this good will be altered at a moment’s notice.
Even though Pocket Play does slip into your pocket nicely, that does not mean that the actual games offering is small or minuscule. At this online casino, you can choose from a variety of games from top-tier game providers such as Pragmatic Play, Play’n GO, Thunderkick, Nolimit City, Microgaming, NetEnt, Quickspin, and ELK Studios. For those looking for a game recommendation, you might want to try Nolimit City’s San Quentin xWays. That slot comes with a unique prison theme and is packed with some rather interesting features!
Mobile casino fans will be delighted to know that Pocket Play hosts a bunch of Evolution Gaming live casino games as well and those are all available on touch screens, too.
Safety and security
Pocket Play does not have many chinks it is armour, but the lack of a European license would be one of these. Players like me would have to pay taxes on my Pocket Play wins, which is hardly ideal as I would consequently have to raise my win target to make things count. Outside of only having a Curacao license, Pocket Play does look pretty decent and safe to me!
Banking options at Pocket Play Casino
Pocket Play lets you transfer money via Visa, MasterCard, Ecopayz, bank transfer, Skrill, Bitcoin, Klarna, and a few other methods. What is a bit alarming, however, is that the customer support agent refused to give me a time frame for withdrawal processing times. Make of it what you will, but I think this gives off somewhat of an unprofessional vibe about the casino.
Pocket Play support is open 24/7. The support agent answered my queries promptly but was not one of the nicest folks I have come across. I guess some support agents are more easily agitated than others.
My experience at Pocket Play Casino
If I was put on the spot, I would surely give Pocket Play a thumbs-up. While its games selection and welcome offers are both very good, I would still like to see them having a better license and being either more transparent or more consistent with their withdrawal processing times.
