Reviewing: mFortune Mobile Casino
There’s one name we keep hearing over and over again: mFortune Mobile Casino. We decided it was time to take a closer look at just why it’s the name on everyone’s lips and why there’s buzz around this casino, which is part of the Intouch Game family. Read on to see what we thought:
We signed up to mFortune mobile casino in-app (but you can register via their website at www.mfortune.co.uk too) and while you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, first impressions were pretty good. The app was slick, clean, and put the slots games front and centre.
The sign up process was as you’d expect, and once they’d verified our age and we’d activated our account mFortune gave us a free £5 bonus to try out some of their games. It’s not often you get something for nothing, so this put a smile on our faces! You can also get your first deposit matched 100%. We deposited £15 and played with £30, but if you fancy maxing it out you can deposit £100 to play with £200.
mFortune’s bonuses don’t stop there, as they seem to love rewarding those players who deposit and play regularly! There are a couple of things to note about these – and your welcome – bonuses: they come with a x1 wagering requirement, and the max you can withdraw in winnings from a free bonus is £200. Those bonuses look like this:
- Free spins, bonus credit, and deposit matches sent out weekly by text
- Game of the Month bonuses on all new slots games
- £5 free for every friend referred plus a bonus equivalent to 50% of their first deposit
- Chances to win bonuses in competitions on the mFortune Facebook page
- Seasonal promotions around Halloween, Christmas, etc. such as prize draws
- Loyalty points and prize draws exclusive to mFortune Bingo
Remember those games we said were front and centre of the mFortune mobile app? There’s something interesting about them…they’re not the big name titles you’d expect to see. In fact, they’re games you won’t find anywhere else, because all of mFortune’s slot games are designed and built in-house. And there’s a lot to like about these original games.
All of their new games have a reel-dominated interface and they’re all really bright, colourful, and modern. You can see mFortune put a lot of effort into the look and feel of their games as well as the interface, style AND substance is always a winner in our book. Some of their older games do look a little dated but we’ll forgive mFortune as even these have cool bonus features and pretty big jackpots!
We tried out Golden Mile Slots with our welcome bonus, and we were impressed with this Vegas-themed slots game. It had a couple of fun bonus games where you could win big, and we saw that the jackpot had been won already this year – it’s nice to know people win these huge prizes! We would like to see more games to choose from – mFortune had around 40 when we looked – but we did discover they release a new title every 4-6 weeks, so that selection will grow quickly.
Bingo and Casino Games
As well as those original slots games, there’s also a small selection of casino games – roulette, blackjack and poker. mFortune’s 3D roulette game looks like it’s had a recent upgrade and is slick and easy to play. We did find their poker and blackjack to look a little outdated, but hopefully a facelift isn’t too far off for these.
Bingo fans will like taking mFortune Bingo for a spin. You can play 90-ball bingo across 11 rooms all of which are named after gemstones. We played in sapphire and got a ticket for just 10p. Your card is marked automatically which leaves you free to chat in the chatrooms or play some of the side-slots – nice touch! The chatrooms are friendly, and they often hold quizzed and prize draws which are fun to take part in.
One thing we will say about these bingo and casino games, is you won’t find them in the mFortune app. You can play them online, or you need to download a separate app for each which is annoying if you have limited space on your phone or tablet.
Withdrawals and Deposits
What is the banking process like at mFortune? What deposit methods do they offer? Have they got any withdrawal limits? All questions you’d ask before signing up, and we’ve checked the whole process out for you.
You can deposit £5 or more via debit / credit card, paysafecard, Skrill or PayPal, or £3 or more via your phone bill – the payment is added to your monthly bill / taken from available PAYG credit. Phone bill deposits are capped at £30 a day, and you’ll need to show you’ve paid this bill when it comes to withdrawing any winnings.
As for withdrawals, you can withdraw via bank transfer without depositing but if you want to withdraw to PayPal or your card you’ll need to have deposited via that method first. You’ll be charged a fix fee of £3 for any withdrawals under £10, and remember there’s that £200 limit on winning from free bonuses.
As for timescales, we found mFortune to take a little longer than the average casino. Withdrawals take 3-4 working days (not counting the day you request it!) to reach the banking team who will then most likely contact you and ask for some I.D. This is pretty standard, and once you’ve sent it over you’ll have to wait another couple of days for the money to be paid.
Security and Safety
Online security is something we all think about, and it’s good to know mFortune Mobile Casino uses 256-bit TLSv1.2 digital encryption to protect your data and transactions. They also promise never to share your data with third parties.
As for the fairness of their games, you can play in confidence because each game is certified for fairness by UKGC-approved testers before release and all slot game RTPs are displayed in the game descriptions.
mFortune is GamCare certified which means they have demonstrated a commitment to responsible gambling. We hope you won’t need them, but the casino has a number of tools to help you keep your play in check including: deposit / session limits, cool-down periods, and self-exclusion. All Intouch Games brands are registered with GAMSTOP too.
We reached out to mFortune’s customer service team a couple of times while we were trying them out, and were pleased to discover the UK-based team are available 24/7 – yep, even on Christmas Day! You can tap ‘support’ in app to contact them or use these details: call +44(0)1384 880 842, text HELP to 85777 for a call-back, email [email protected], or message them on live chat via the website.
The Final Verdict
With some great original games, a slick app, and generous bonuses there’s a lot to like about mFortune Casino. While some games could do with a refresh and withdrawals could be sped up, this isn’t enough to put us off and we’d certainly play there again. Good work, mFortune!
