Operated by Functional Games SA, Mobizino is a site that seems to have been named by simply throwing some good sound syllables at each other and seeing what it created. Conveniently, it sounds pretty nice, but that feels like it’s more by luck than judgement.
Functional Games are the folks behind the terrible Mr Star Casino, which means that Mobizino, which was launched in 2016, a year after its brethren, has a lot to prove in order to not join Mr Star in its attempt to avoid being the very worst online casino (to be fair, it would take more than either site has to take that title from Pornhub Casino).
As much as I’d like to tell you that wasn’t true, and that Mobizino actually manages to stand out and be far better than its predecessor, the truth is this is basically exactly the same site just with a slightly different colour scheme, and as bad as the colour scheme at Mr Star is, it is a long way away from the only thing that needs fixing.
This is another example of lazy site creation, just a slightly differently packaged replica of another site on the network. One can’t help that think that one great site would have been a better plan than a bunch of near identical awful ones.
Design and theme
Mobizino is a much nicer colour than its aforementioned sister site, the shades of blue utilised are tranquil and attractive, and create a nice backdrop. That’s until you consider the artwork.
The scrolling banner uses many designs from games available at the site, which are attractive because the games are attractive, and then you get to an advert for the Mobizino welcome bonus (which is impressive, 100% up to £200 and 200 free spins) and you’re greeted by a man in the weirdest glasses I may have ever seen, pointed at his mobile phone like he is unnecessarily proud of its existence.
Then there’s the centre of the homepage, which houses a few thumbnails to popular games, information on jackpot slots, and more. The background of this is a shade of white that seems to be a continuous theme across sites on this network, which is strange choice, because it looks like the designers of the site forgot to colour in the background, which seems exceedingly lazy being that it looks like the rest of the site was put together on Paint, and we all know how to fill a block of colour on Paint.
The games on offer here, like everything else at the site, are identical to other sites on the network, which would be okay if it was a good selection, but being it is a limited number of games from just four software developers (Aberrant, Microgaming, NetEnt, and Play'n GO) this is simply not good enough.
The few developers that are used are good quality, and Aberrant games are rare at online casino sites, but this is mainly because they are not particularly exciting, and this being the only USP of an otherwise total failure of an online casino, means that Mobizino can join Mr Star Casino in what one assumes will soon be the online casino scrapheap.
This may seem unnecessarily unfair, but the online casino world is one of the most highly competitive markets in the world, and attempting to phone it in when it comes to design, games, and every other aspect of the site (short of the welcome bonus, which is competitive, but not enough) means that this is a site that can expect to be outdone by pretty much every rival it has in the industry, except those it shares a network with.
