Despite only launching in 2009, Winner Casino has now thrown its own mobile platform into the ring to compete with the biggest names in the sector. But how does its gambling-on-the-go service compare with its rivals?
Powered by the likes of industry leaders Microgaming and Playtech, it is no surprise Winner Mobile sits near the top of our highly recommended mobile offerings. Playtech provides the software while joining Microgaming to provide the game offerings, so you can be assured that games run smoothly and graphics are of the highest quality.
The mobile package is available for smartphones, including Android, iPhone and BlackBerry amongst others. Android and iPhone users can access the casino by simply going to www.winner.com on their phone and the mobile version will show up to the right of the page, where the 17 games are clearly listed as thumbnails.
However, users of all the other leading mobile devices – such as Blackberry, Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, LG and more – have to download the package from the webpage. The user interface is easily navigable though so no issues should arise.
Once you’ve signed in using your account details from the website – or registering if a new player altogether – you’ll see blackjack, roulette, video poker, scratch cards and 12 slot games all available to play.
This means that it doesn’t have the most comprehensive games list around, although the slots and scratch cards reflect the same offerings you’ll find on the online casino. Pink Panther, Rocky and Iron Man II are just a few of the favourites available on the mobile version, as well as popular video poker game Jacks or Better.
You can also expect the number of games to increase as the months go on; when the mobile platform launched earlier this year it only offered four games so has already expanded admirably quickly.
First deposits have to be a minimum of £10 though, as with most similar sites, it would benefit the user to increase this to avail of a generous first deposit bonus.
As you get playing, the team over at Winner will consistently throw a number of promotions and loyalty schemes your way to reward you for continued play. The VIP club has six levels with increasingly attractive rates of cashback, essentially meaning that the more you play, the more you stand to win.
Winner is licensed and registered in Alderney, so is therefore subject to rigorous regulation. Support from a dedicated team of professionals is available 24/7, while all major banking methods – including a vast range of credit and debits cars, plus initiatives such as UKash, PayPal and Neteller – are accepted.

For such a young company, Winner has certainly got its priorities right. The transition from website to mobile has been impressively seamless; easily navigable thanks to large icons and surprisingly immersive owing to smooth gameplay, this is simple gaming on the move at its best. Once its catalogue of games increases in the near future, this will be a contender for the best site of its kind.
