About Omni Casino Mobile
There is more to online casinos beyond playing for cash. There is the matter of trust and security. In this respect you can trust Omni Casino. The South Africa friendly casino has been in operation since 1997 and that says everything about this online casino in a virtual gaming world where casinos appear and disappear by the dozen.
That said a word about software provider and games. Omni casino has chosen to go with Playtech. Only one software provider may appear a bit limiting but then, it is about playing and winning money so you do not need a ton of games. Playtech, one of the top tier providers, chips in with a variety of slots, table games, video poker and thumping big progressive slots. Then there is a live dealers section to give a genuine real casino experience. The casino deserves praise for displaying the mobile icon for games that are mobile optimized. The good news for South Africa based players is that they are permitted to sign up and play on this casino.. Players can use ZAR but it will be converted to the equivalent in Euro, the chief operating currency at the casino. You can also get by using bitcoins.
Talk about banking brings us to banking channels and security. As is to be expected, whether you use mobiles or PCs, transactions are end to end encrypted with SSL encryption. You can use Mastercard, Visa, Skrill, Neteller and a host of other methods including bitcoin.
Omni Casino is operated by Peak Interactive NV with a Curacao gaming Licence and it is a Casinomeister accredited casino, an indicator of trustworthiness.
Mobile Devices Supported at Omni Casino
Players do have the option to access Omni Casino on their PCs and mobiles. For PC users the casino offers software that can be downloaded, installed and run to initiate the registration process, after which you can play for fun or for cash. Mobile players are not offered a native app for Android or iOS platforms but gaming is through the web app in the instant play mode in the browser. This is not such a bad thing considering that if you use different mobile devices you would have to download the app to each one and the app will occupy space. Instead, in-browser play is more convenient since games are all HTML5 based.
It is best to choose newest generation mobiles equipped with 4G/5G radio, 4GB RAM and multi-core processor with full HD screen if you decide to use your phone for playing at omnicasino.com. Players have access to 200+ games including progressive jackpots and live casino in addition to slots and table games.
That you can load the casino in the browser on your mobile phone and play in the browser indicates that the OS and platform of the mobile device do not matter. You can do so on devices powered by any operating system.
- Android devices: Android devices undoubtedly rule the roost in South Africa with a market share of over 65%. You can play on just about any Android powered smartphone of any brand provided the device has good specs. Use devices running Android 8 or later.
- iOS: Apple device owners do take pride of ownership in owning iPhones. iOS has a 12% market share in South Africa and iPhone owners can simply use Safari browser to launch Omni Casino site and play. The high resolution screen screens of iPads or iPhones lends an extraordinary experience to gaming.
- Windows Phone: South Africa reportedly has a moderate user base of Windows mobile phones, about 15% or so. It is best to ignore older 3G based Windows phones and, instead, choose the newer generation phones with 4G connectivity. Firefox and Chrome are the best browsers to use in the Windows mobile environment to launch the casino and play to your heart’s content.
- Blackberry: Blackberry mobiles have been eclipsed but the brand may be making a comeback. If you still own a previous generation Blackberry and it has 4G you are good to go to Omni Casino. Remember, you will be playing in the browser so brand is immaterial so long as you have a suitable browser and adequate hardware specs.
Omni Casino Android Mobile Casino App
There are mixed feelings about apps. Apps are convenient since you can go straightaway to the casino and your settings are remembered. On the other hand, if you use multiple mobile devices you would have to load the app on each and the app plus games do occupy space. Instant play mode is the current flavour and with games all being HTML5 based there is no need for an app nor does the casino offer one.
However, the casino does offer a software client that can be downloaded to your PC.
Downloading the Android Omni casino app is easy:
Not applicable since no app is available.

Now to the games lobby at Omni Casino. This section is well arranged with options to pick newest games, popular games, slots, progressive slots, live dealer games, table games and video poker. Playtech is the sole provider and powers the regular casino as well as the live streamed games section. Mobile players from South Africa will appreciate the way the casino permits you to display game icons in a grid array, in list form and, importantly for those with slow internet, in text only list.
Each game has associated buttons giving you options for real money play or demo mode, which means playing for fun. Should you view the icons in the grid mode then you will also see a mobile icon associated with each game icon indicating mobile compatibility.
