Pocket Fortune Casino Review
It wasn’t too long ago that mobile players were an untapped commodity in the online casino market, with many sites not catering to this growing market at all. However, growing proved to be the operative word, and the mobile gaming audience grew to a size that could no longer be ignored, as a result, in the modern market, it’s rare to stumble upon an online casino that doesn’t offer at least as many options for mobile players as they do for desktop users.
Then you get to the list of sites who have looked to capitalise further on this market by being predominantly mobile-focused, and, as the name may suggest, this is very much the case with Pocket Fortune.
Launched back in 2016, Pocket Fortune was fairly early to leap on the mobile bandwagon, and that is partly why the site has developed such an impressive reputation in the time between then and now.
However, a good idea can only do so much, and once a site has its foot in the door of the iGaming market by finding a niche, it still has to work just as hard as everyone else in this highly competitive industry to stay afloat.
We’ve seen sites start well and fall hard before, does Pocket Fortune look likely to join them? Or is this a site that has more to it than a smart gimmick?
Design and theme
Pocket Fortune has a playful design to it, the mascot of the site is an undersized coal miner dragging a pocket brimming with cash, the cartoon style is charming and well executed with a denim colour scheme behind it, giving the impression of the pocket being dragged being attached to jeans, which strikes one as a logistical nightmare but makes for a nice image.
This image, also advertises the welcome bonus which, at the time of writing, offers a bonus of up to £200 and 25 spins on your first deposit as well as bonuses on the next two deposits you make at the site.
As you scan down the page you will find the traditional thumbnails that offer instant access to popular games at the site, except at Pocket fortune they are all separated into game category to aid with ease of navigation.
Navigation is clearly a priority here, and the Pocket Fortune site is set up in a way that makes all aspects of the site easy to locate, which is a definite help.
Pocket Fortune is a site on the Cozy Games network, which means (as it often does) that the only games available at the site are those that come from Cozy themselves.
This isn’t the worst thing, Cozy have some very entertaining casino games in their collection, but although this would have been enough a few years ago, that is no longer the case.
Online casinos in the modern market offer titles from a wide range of software developers, and while Pocket Fortune may have been one of a small number of mobile casinos when it first started out, with the most established casinos on the internet now offering mobile gaming, this site has been somewhat overtaken by events, and now simply doesn’t feel like it offers enough.
There’s a decent selection of slots, a fair few table and card games, and a host of scratchcards, so it’s not like players won’t find anything to play, but when you put the selection on offer here against the giants of the industry, Pocket fortune can’t come close, and that’s a shame.
More software developers are going to be necessary, and soon, if Pocket Fortune has any chance of climbing the iGaming ladder.
