Xbox Game Bar
Most people do not know that Windows 10 has a screen recording utility, known as the Xbox Game Bar which allows you to record your screen, actions and even a game entirely. The Xbox Game Bar comes default with Windows 10. We will take you through a step-by-step process of how to record with Xbox Game Bar:

- To open Game Bar, click “Yes, this is a game.”
- Once the Game Bar is open, click on the Start Recording button ( or Win+Alt+R).
- To stop the recording, click on the red recording bar on the top right, where it shows you the length of your recording. (Note: If you’re not able to find the red bar, simply press Win + G and it will appear again.
- You’re recording will end and be saved in “Captures”, which is a subfile under the Videos folder.
Note: You may also use the Game Bar to take screenshots. Instead of clicking on record, click the Camera Icon(or Win+Alt+PrntScr).

Recording your big wins on your Mobile Device
In the digital age that we are in, most players prefer playing their games on their respective mobile phones. It’s convenient, saves a lot of time and is a great way of getting some entertainment while on the go. We will show you how to record your wins on Android or iOS devices. But do remember, we highly recommend recording in LandScape mode, as it is more informative and serves your purpose more than Portrait.
Before we get into the different devices, all our players should check out LeoVegas’ new MultiPlay feature here, which lets you multi-table while playing on your mobile device! Soon you’ll be on your way to recording a double MEGA win on the same screen! If that won’t make waves on the internet, we don’t know what will.
Native: Only for newer devices
Downloading third-party apps may be dangerous and not preferred by most. Android saw this as a concern and decided to include such a utility with its newer model phones. With Android Q, players can take full advantage of Android’s built-in screen recording utility. By default, however, this feature is hidden. But fret not, we will show you how to enable this feature and get to recording your screen in no time.

Android: Using the Screen Recorder App
If you’re using an older Android device or simply are not able to enable the native screen recorder, you may record your screen with a third-party app known as Screen Recorder – No Ads. You may find it in the Google Play Store. Once done downloading and installing, follow the steps below:
- Open the Screen Recorder App.
- You will be prompted to grant certain permissions to the app, click “Allow” for them all.

- Once done, go back to the home screen of the app which says “Videos” and click once again on the blue Video icon.
- Once clicked, a dialogue box will appear asking you permission for the app to record your screen. Tick “Don’t Show Again” and hit “Start Now”.
- A timer of 3 seconds begins which lets you comfortably open up the app or window you wish to record.
- Once the timer hits zero, you’re recording begins.
- If you swipe down your screen from the top to show your Notification Centre, you will find the Screen Recorder Menu Bar.
- On the Menu Bar, you may Pause, Stop or Draw on your current recording.
- As soon as you “Stop” your recording, a notification box will appear on the top of the screen saying “Screen recording captured”.
- You may Share, Trim or Delete this recording.
- You can also click on the title of the video and open it to view with whichever app you please.

Your newly recorded video will be saved and ready to Use/Share/Edit/Delete in your Gallery, it will be the most recent entry.
