BGO’s mobile site does lack a little bit of flair, certainly when it comes to design. It’s functional rather than flash and other online casinos do look better on the smaller screen. However, the site is optimised for use and you can scroll through the games section without any hitches or lag time. Content is well-sized so it doesn’t dominate the screen but remains easily readable. Players can also access their ‘Vault’ in a single click from any page in the BGO online casino. From there, you can track your latest available bonuses and rewards. I haven’t yet come across a bonus or free spins offer from BGO that isn’t available for use in the mobile casino.
BGO Mobile App
You can choose to access BGO casino mobile site from your device’s internet browser or simply download the BGO Mobile App. That provides you with one-click access to the site’s impressive range of mobile slots and other casino games. The BGO app takes just a minute or two to locate and download from your iTunes or Google Play store. The BGO app reviews aren’t flattering and the 14 users who bothered to rate the app on the Google Play app shop rated it an average of 2.5. Apple users were even less impressed by scoring the app only 2.2. The mobile version of the site is slick though; the poor BGO Casino app ratings shouldn’t detract from the impressive mobile browser experience.
Mobile apps are probably less popular than they were when casinos first began offering mobile access. Most sites are optimised for browser use now so people often choose to load up their browser when they want to access the BGO casino mobile site. The app is, however, the quickest and easiest way to start playing BGO’s fine range of casino games.
Bottomline? Don’t use the mobile app, use the BGO casino mobile website.
BGO Mobile Login
I mentioned a bit of a grumble earlier, and it would be remiss of me not to revisit it. There’s no doubt that BGO is now a leading light in the gambling industry. Indeed, it has been for some years. The games are great, the platform is great, the loyalty program is fantastic, especially the Beat the Boss and ‘The Vault’ promotions. This is a brand that knows what it is doing. So why, then, has it neglected to include advanced filtering options for its games collection? It’s very weird.
It also means that you are left to either browse the huge range of over 600 virtual slot machines listed at BGO, or punch it a direct search every time you want to play a new one. Whereas other casino sites allow sophisticated function by attributes such as slot provider, game features or a combination of lots of different characteristics, BGO is found slightly wanting in this department. I like a browse and often know which games I want to play too. Regardless of that, I would like significant filtering options as well. It seems like a strange oversight for a casino of BGO’s prowess, but unless I am going mad, it’s something that the site still needs to address.
I’ll level with you here. I might be a bit thick, but I struggled to locate the BGO login page when I first arrived on the mobile site via my browser. You need to click the little padlock symbol to begin the process and I didn’t realise at first. Don’t get me wrong, there aren’t many visible symbols to click so it only took me seconds to work out. Once I had, the log in process was easy. You can use the same details you use for the main desktop casino site. If you want to avoid logging in altogether, then it’s best to download the casino app.
Players can access BGO’s live chat customer support function from the mobile casino up until midnight UK time.
BGO Mobile Casino Bonuses
BGO’s bonuses are always available for use on your mobile device from my experience. That includes your welcome bonus, consisting of up to 500 free spins as soon as you make your first deposit. BGO’s free spins are triggered on a small £10 deposit. Once you deposit, you will then be able to spin the Mega Wheel for your chance of 500 free spins. The free spins come with a maximum bet of £2.50, a max £8 per 10 spins win and a max bonus win of £150. Finally, there is a rather hefty 65x wagering requirement. It means you get to try out the casino because with those terms you won’t win much — still a fun offer though and a good introduction to BGO.
The casino occasionally offers boosted bonuses specifically to mobile players too so look out for those.
BGO Casino Mobile Games
The advent and growth in popularity of mobile casino gaming is a relatively new industry development. Hence, not all slots and table games are available in the mobile format as yet. However, BGO is partnered with some of the most prolific game suppliers in the industry. Providers like NetEnt and Playtech routinely release mobile versions of their newest video slots so you can enjoy NetEnt games like Starburst, Legend of Shangri-La Gonzo’s Quest on the move.
BGO now offers over 500 mobile casino games in total, most of which are mobile slots. However, there are plenty of other casino games available including table games like blackjack and roulette. It’s good to see both the BGO live casino and BGO bingo available from the same app too. Finally, you can play a selection of progressive jackpots from your mobile device too, including the likes of Mega Fortune and Jackpot Giant. BGO hasn’t buddied up with MicroGaming as of yet, however, so you can’t play the record-breaking Mega Moolah – arguably the most famous of all the progressive jackpots – in either the BGO desktop or mobile casino. Still, you can’t claim to be short on choice when you play at the BGO Casino mobile.
The casino is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and these licenses extend to the mobile site. The Gambling Commission is widely respected and its inspection is considered the most stringent of any regulatory body. BGO clearly respects their opinion too. It BGO casino mobile is a site you can trust.
