Casino-Mate official mobile app overview

Casino-Mate mobile app for Australian real money playersThe Casino-Mate app is an official app that can be downloaded for free by tapping the button on this page on your device. It’s compatibility with both Apple and Android make it accessible over a range of popular mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, the Samsung Galaxy range, and other Android powered phones and tablets.

This native app is only new to the market, and perhaps Casino-Mate is still trying to iron out a few kinks, as in our experience testing this app over a range of mobile devices it can be painfully slow to load. If you don’t have the patience but you do have access to a computer, you may be better off playing at the full desktop site.

If the loading speed isn’t an issue for you, the Casino-Mate app does provide a good platform to play portable real money mobile casino games. It uses the standard Microgaming mobile format, so if you’ve ever played using the Royal Vegas Casino app or at another Microgaming powered mobile casino you’ll know what to expect.

Features and interface

Upon loading the Casino-Mate app you’ll be asked to register for a new account, or sign into your existing account. If you already have an account with Casino-Mate’s desktop site, you can use the same details to login for mobile play. Register for a new account and you can scoop up to $1400 free in welcome bonuses.

If you simply want to check out the app without registering, just tap the ‘back to games’ button at the bottom of the login screen to be taken to the casino lobby.

The casino lobby is straight forward and easy to use. The home screen consists of all the latest games, while you can tap the game categories across the top of the screen to scroll through all game collections. The official stuff lies across the bottom of the screen; this is where you can tap icons to make a deposit, check your account, get help or see what current mobile promotions are up for grabs.

Conveniently, everything in the app is visible from one single screen, which can be very helpful when playing on the smaller screen of a smartphone. Even if you’ve never played at a mobile casino before, the Casino-Mate app is super user-friendly and makes portable gameplay very simple.

Casino-Mate app games catalogue

Like most casino apps, slots account for the majority of mobile optimised games, with over 85 Microgaming slots to choose from, most of which are from the older Microgaming collection, but new games are more regularly finding their way to the mobile space. Here is a list of the casino game variants you’ll find using the Casino-Mate app:

Deposit methods for mobile Casino-Mate app

To make a mobile deposit using the Casino-Mate app, tap on the banking button with the big dollar sign icon at the bottom of the screen. You’ll be taken to the next screen where you’ll be asked to enter the amount of real funds you wish to transfer, followed by the deposit method you wish to use.

Like the full desktop site, the Casino-Mate app is protected by 128 Bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) digital encryption, so as long as you play using a secure WiFi, 3G or 4G connection you can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your financial information is kept safe at all times.

Final verdict

While the Casino-Mate app provides a solid mobile gambling experience and is definitely recommended for those players who strongly prefer to play using a native app, there are better options out there. During our testing this app was just too slow to load and with standard Microgaming offerings, there’s nothing we haven’t seen before. However, once the app was working smoothly it provided a good range of games that worked well on the mobile screen and we enjoyed the user-friendliness of the app layout.

Give Casino-Mate a try using the mobile app or desktop site and you’ll receive up to $1400 in matched deposit bonuses upon loading real money to your account for the first time.
