Authentic Gaming has Released an Updated Version of it’s Mobile Playing Interface, Named Hydra Mobile 2.0.

Authentic gaming Hydra Mobile 2.0 portrait modeFeatures of the new interface include:

I performed a review, comparing the existing interface with the new and I was impressed with what i saw.

The big difference is the addition of portrait mode, which is more appropriate for one handed play than landscape.

I tested the interface using my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge mobile phone, as this is the only mobile device I use for playing. Otherwise I use a desktop.

A Video Review of Authentic Gaming Hydra Mobile 2.0

What did I think?

The new interface stacks up well against it’s predecessor.

I really like the seamless switching between the two playing orientations. The screen layout is very clean, giving the feeling of space, rather than a cramped looking interface.

I was surprised there were no settings that could be played with. I guess the adage of Kiss (Keep It Simple Stupid) may apply here :-)

The view of the table works well in both views, although in preference I liked landscape more than the portrait, which I found to be a bit too small for my eyes to be of any practical use in determining the result. I relied more of the interface telling me.

There are still one or two things missing that I think would improve the playing experience even more. Perhaps they will follow in a later release.


A great improvement from the original version, which you can see in my review view above.

The interface is in soft mode launch at the moment (6th Sept 2018).

If you want to try it, select the table at the Platinum Casino.

Leo Vegas and Mr Green both have the table.




About Neil’s Casino Comparer Reviews

I have tried to be objective and consistent with all my live casino reviews. Hopefully, they will strike a chord with you, but I thought it might be helpful to explain the criteria I use to mark each of the casinos. Hopefully, the categories and explanations make sense.

Playability – What is the overall impression of the casino? Did I have a good time? are the dealers nice and chatty and is everything easy to understand? Does it have a good set of games and is there a comprehensive set of betting options? Are high stakes players taken care of?

Software – What is the software like to use and does it integrate well with the rest of the casino?. Are the images clear and is the video streaming fast? Have they taken more than the default shared tables? Is it available on mobile?

Payment Options – Does the casino have a good variety of payment options? Do they payout quickly and on time?

Security – How good is the reputation of the casino amongst other players? Do they hold a valid gaming license? Are they transparent about the security measures they have in place? Are they regularly audited? Do they publish this information?

Support – Do they have multiple methods for communication with me? Is support available 24×7? Do they have instant chat and are they quick to respond? Are they able to help me immediately? Do they have an online FAQ and self-help library? Are the support people knowledgeable about the product I’m playing?

Bonuses – Do they have bonuses?. How strict are the wagering requirements? Do they offer repeat bonuses?. Do they offer loyalty points and can they be redeemed for cash or playing credits?

After all that, would I play there regularly?
