While 2018 may barely have started, the race to deliver the best casino app of the year has already started in earnest.
This marketplace is certainly crowded, which stands to reason given that online gaming now accounts for an impressive 33% of the overall gambling market in the UK.
In this post, we’ll have our say on the best casino apps for 2018, and rate the top five according to their appeal.
We start with the Pocketwin app, which is largely unheralded but represents one of the best options on the current market. Renowned for its diverse range of classic casino games and lavish promotions, this app arguably offers the best value proposition to players across the length and breadth of the UK. Currently, new players can deposit €10 and play with up to €60, for example, while there’s also a 100% matched bonus on credits up to €200! These are mouth-watering offers, so this app is more than worthy of first place on our list.
- Mansion Casino
Next up is the Mansion Casino, which boasts tremendous numbers in terms of the overall player experience. The app has payout speeds of between 1 and 2 days, for example, while customers can enjoy an overall return-to-player (RTP) rate of 97.32%. The app also has a live dealer available and in excess of 400 games on offer, so there should be something to keep both casual and serious players happy.
- Betway Casino
Next up comes Betway Casino, which is one of the most well-known apps in the UK and another that showcases excellent figures from a customer experience perspective. The brand is currently offering a limited bonus package worth an impressive £1500, for example, while there’s also an average RTP rate of 97.55%. Players can also access a huge range of more than 495 titles across multiple casino disciplines, with the brand placing a heavy emphasis on themed slot games.
- Royal Panda
The Royal Panda app is an exceptionally popular and accessible platform, and one that delivers an exceptional mobile experience too. There is definitely a competitive RTP rate available through the site, with an average payout of 96.45% across the board. Although it’s fair to say that this app has a relatively limited range of games with a little over 200 available to players, there is an excess of live dealer titles that should appeal to serious or more competitive gamblers. With weekly promotions also available, this is definitely an app to watch in 2018.
- Betfair Casino
We close with the Betfair Casino app, which offers an average payout of 96.32% overall and ensures that players receive payments within a period of three days. As would expect from a casino brand of this stature, this app offers you access to a huge array of games while there’s also a diverse range of bonuses to help enhance your experience. As if all of this were not enough, the app is currently offering a 200% matching bonus on deposits of up to a huge £500, with new players eligible to receive this when they sign up.
