In this latest entry in our ongoing series on gambling technology, we take a look at the Big Fish Casino app.
Casual gamers and gamblers in search of their ‘catch of the day’ should cast their rod in the direction of the dazzling colours and fun cartoon symbol that light up the Big Fish Casino app. Released in 2012 by the extremely successful Big Fish games company, this free casino app provides a social gaming platform for classic casino favourites such as slots, Texas Hold ’em poker and Roulette, as well as non-traditional offerings like “Wicked Wins” and “Rollin Rich”. Apps like these have become a popular alternative to the traditional online casino games available at the likes of Roulette17.com and are only growing in popularity.
Adaptable for desktop or mobile play, the Big Fish Casino app can be easily downloaded from the Android Play store, with new customers given the added incentive of being able to claim 100,000 free casino chips when they sign up. Players should be aware that this app is strictly designed for entertainment purposes and only deals in virtual currency.
Loyal players can earn VIP status dependent on their frequency of play as the more you play, the more points you will accumulate. This status gives you the chance to enter new events, earn bonus chips and play premium slots in this vibrant gaming community.
Those not so familiar with the world of slot machines and other casino compulsions can refer to the informative ‘guides’ section to read up on how to master the different games and understand the classic jargon that is used. Despite the wealth of options available (more than 450 games for mobiles and tablets), this app is extremely simplistic in its layout with a basic menu offering the guides section and the ‘play now’ option with links to download the software or play instantly within the browser.
In the backdrop you will see a room brimming with slot machines which adds to the authenticity and atmosphere. Further down the home page there are all the details for the promotions – on a daily basis there are 35,000 jackpots to win every day with 16 billion chips in jackpots up for grabs. Don’t forget to take advantage of the free chips every half an hour by clicking on the ‘Free Chips’ button in the Lobby.
The social interaction of Big Fish casino enables you to compete against your friends by setting up your own private group by utilising the Facebook connection. Such is the sizeable community at Big Fish, there are always fun tournaments available to join, enabling you to make new contacts and try your hand against like-minded individuals.
As it does not have the ruthless nature of the paid ranks, this social casino offers a relaxed vibe and with it thousands of other players who are happy to answer your questions or provide assistance. As bona fide cash is not prevalent, there are very rarely any pressing issues, but players can use the ‘forum’ link or relevant social media channels to raise any concerns they may have to the support team.
If your long-term vision is to delve into the cut-throat world of wagering real money, Big Fish Casino is the ideal platform to perfect your art in a competitive environment before hitting the real money online casinos. However, this social platform can still give you all the excitement of a real-life casino that comes with its community spirit and enjoyable games – after all, sometimes it’s better to be a big fish in a big pond.
