RichCasino launches a new way to play with a mobile website.
About Rich Casino
RichCasino opened its virtual doors in 2009. It is an online casino that is owned and controlled by Blefondia Holdings and powered by TopGame Technology Dynamics. As with all Blefondia casinos, it is overseen by the gambling regulatory body of Costa Rica and accepts clients from nearly any market, including the United States.
Rich Mobile Website
Rather than develop individual Android, iOS and perhaps even Windows Phone apps, RichCasino and TopGame chose to go with a mobile website approach, which has both advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, the user experience is seamless. The user simply navigates to the casino website, and if the website detects a mobile browser, then it feeds the user the mobile presentation. On the other hand, mobile apps allow for a more encapsulated experience, which generally — not always — allows for games with more features that better take advantage of the mobile user interface.
Mobile Game Selection
The selection at casinos based on TopGame Technology is relatively small, compared to RTG or Microgaming, for instance. At last count, it was between 50 to 100 games, and that count includes variations on the same game. The initial mobile experience includes 25 unique games, which is not impressive by any means but is certainly a respectable number in light of the main casino’s offerings. Note that iPhone and iPad users are currently limited to about 20 games, and there is no word when the others will be ready. Most of the games available are slot machines, but there is also blackjack, roulette and so forth.
A Rich Rebranding?
RichCasino has only been around for a little over five years, and the sailing has not always been smooth. In fact, a number of websites online began blacklisting them several years ago due to non- and slow payment of winnings, unfair withdrawal limits and unresponsive customer support. More recently, RichCasino has worked to shed that negative image, and a foray into mobile play is part of that. Some might suggest a complete rebranding of the name and style, but many gamblers might never give RichCasino another chance without a change of ownership.
