Winneroo Mobile is the mobile casino sister of the Winneroo free competitions site Winneroo Casino, meaning that Winneroo as a whole really knows how to make people… winners. On first glance, Winneroo Mobile Casino is very similar to many other Probability casinos, and you wouldn't be too far wrong believing this. There're a couple of surprises along the way, though, and this review aims to uncover some of them.
Winneroo has the same bones as other Probability casinos (such as Moobile Games and LadyLucks), but has tried to grow into its own. There are 30+ games and comparable bonuses, plus they process cash-outs within a week! Now, click to read whichever section tickles your fancy.

You're not going to be surprised to see most of the games which are on offer at Winneroo. As a Probability casino, you're going to be able to enjoy all the Probablity classics like Long John's Silver, Way of the Slot, Pots O' Plenty, Poseidon's Kingdom and War Zone and unfortunately not a whole lot more. Yes, these are all great, high resolution slots, and many of them are in HD or offer big progressive jackpots, but you can play them all other sites like Moobile Games and LadyLucks.
The saving grace of Winneroo's roster has no doubt got to be Spinneroo. Released late last year on the anniversary of Winneroo's first birthday, this HD slot is actually completely unique to the casino-a first for a Probability site. With 5 reels and 50 paylines, you can play anything from 2p to £1 per line, meaning it suits conservative and intermediate players alike. The colour scheme of the game echoes the blues, reds and oranges of Winneroo's own background, and the symbols you'll find on the reels are all borrowed from 10 of Winneroo's most popular slots.
While it is true that Spinneroo encapsulates the best of what players love at Winneroo, it isn't particularly different in style or play than the other games on offer. If you're really after amazing and unique games, then Winneroo probably isn't the place you should be looking for them. We still love Winneroo though as you shall see soon…
Here's a full list of games to play at Winneroo Mobile:
|Fizz Factory||Long John’s Silver||Filthy Rich||Roulette|
|Spinneroo||Way of the Slot||Silly Slots||Blackjack|
|Gold Rush||The Slot||Pharaoh’s Fortunes||Bingo|
|Mayan Moola||War Zone||Disco Dollars||Sweet Treats|
|Samurai vs Zombies||Money Beach||Loopy Lotto||Knights Jackpot|
|Pots O’ Plenty||Reindeer Readies||The Only Way is Slots||Moving Moments|
|Poseidon’s Kingdom||Contract Killer||Super Fruity||Goldify|
Even if the games aren't quite up to scratch, here is something that Winneroo does particularly well: bonuses.
New players are in for a right treat for one. As with all Probability casinos, you can get £5 absolutely free to play with before you make a deposit; this means you can try out all the games before committing any of your own money to them, and you get to keep any winnings. This is a bonus we're seeing less and less, so you should really take advantage of it while you can. What's more, you can stand to make and extra £225 to play with when you deposit.
- 100% bonus up to £150 for your first deposit
- 100% bonus up to £50 for your second deposit
- 100% bonus up to £25 on your third deposit
With three deposit match bonuses, you can get a small fortune of free money to play with. This may not be the biggest haul you can get from deposit bonuses at a mobile casino, but it's certainly above average, and we definitely think it's worth having.
Do note that all of these bonuses must be wagered at least 50 times can be made. For example, if you receive a £5 bonus, you need to wager 50 x £5 = £250 before you can withdraw your bonus. These terms and conditions are pretty standard fare, although we wish they were slightly lower! Also, the deposit match bonuses are only available for deposits made by card, Paypal or Ukash.
On top of all the bonuses of new players, returning players can take advantage of a plethora of other promotions, like £20 if you refer a friend. Besides, there is always a cool promotion going on at Winneroo. In February 2015, we enjoyed earning £50 bonuses with The Love Code; in October, we celebrated Halloween’s with £150 cashback and trick-or-treats prizes via SMS. To stay up-to-date with these monthly promotions, I recommend that you follow them on Facebook.
Back to Table of Contents.
We're happy to announce that Winneroo lets you deposit using our two favourite depositing methods: Ukash and mobile phone billing! If you don't know why we love these methods, read our articles on why Ukash is so good and why phone billing is great. Their phone bill option can be used with EE, Vodafone, O2, Virgin Media and Three, as well as all other UK phone networks. Winneroo also allows you to deposit by BT Landline. On top of these you can use any major debit card and a number of eWallets (Paypal and paysafecard).
Do note that mobile billing deposits are disabled as soon as you make your first card deposit. Winneroo explains that this is because mobile billing deposits are a lot more expensive to process. It’s a shame that you have to decide between:
- Mobile billing – Convenient deposits, but no bonuses available. Pick this one if you intend to play with small amounts, and prefer not to be tied down with steep wagering requirements
- Card deposits – Bonuses are available, and withdrawals will be made straight to your card.
Withdrawals at Winneroo are processed via cheque, card or Paypal. Cheques are sent if you deposit using MasterCard, Maestro, Solo, Ukash, Paysafecard, Boku (phone bill) and BT Bill. There is a minimum withdrawal of £10 and a maximum of £20,000 per transaction. Card withdrawals take up to 3 days, depending on the bank, while cheques are posted within 5 days.
Unique Features- Made for mobile
There is no online version of the Winneroo Games casino, meaning that every scrap of goodness has been invested into the HTML5 platform. Therefore, the entirety of Winneroo games is totally mobile optimisedand tailored to the needs and wants of mobile players, and more importantly the screens they're playing on. The look and feel of the site has the same clean, smooth feel that we've come to expect from a Probability casino, but the on-site graphics lack a bit of the grandeur of some of the other sites we've reviewed recently, like Guts Mobile Casino.
Besides that, we can't say much about special or uniqueness at Winneroo, mainly because it is so much like any other Probability casino you care to visit (a common criticism of Probability casinos). Of course we can mention again the fact that Spinneroo is completely unique to the casino, but that's not much to trade on.
However, we have interviewed the Senior Manager for Winneroo – and he counters that Winneroo is unique because of its bespoke promotions and simpler registration process.
Winneroo is a mix of the very good and the annoyingly mediocre. The bonuses and banking options are great, and everything that goes into the functioning of the casino (including HD graphics on many games) are to its credit. However, it's really hard to ignore the fact that the games on the roster don't offer anything like the sort of range and variety that you might hope for.
Would we advise you to play at Winneroo? If you've never played at a Probability casino then there's no reason not to enjoy this casino. If you have, just try out Spinneroo! Give it a shot with the free £5 no deposit bonus before you commit any money to playing here.
