Mobile and Smart Phone Casinos

Following the trend of sportsbooks and poker rooms to the mobile, the casino industry has already dewelved into the industry of mobile gaming with apps available for the iPhone, google Android and other types of Smart Phones.

To able to access mobile casino games and offers on your mobile you’ll need to be WAP enabled.  On iPhones the network is slightly different since all iPhone apps run off Java which reduces the band width and improves overall gameplay.

Mobile Casinos

In terms of which casinos offer iphone real money apps, you can choose from the list below. On each of these casinos you can choose to play the same popular games, including mobile craps, mobile roulette, mobile baccarat, mobile poker, mobile black jack and video poker.  The handful of caisnos that currently offer mobile casino games are usually supported by leading technology and platform developers such as Microgaming and Playtechc.  William Hill’s casino supports both iPhone, Blackberry and Std WAP-enabled mobile phones.

  • 32 Red Mobile Casino
  • Jackpot City Mobile
  • William Hill Casino

All of the sites offer a special mobile phone casino bonus for users in order to provide an incentive to install their games on your mobile and make a new deposit.  For example, 32Red’s mobile casino les you claim up to £50 free when you download 32Red Mobile Casino today.  In my opinion it seems like offers like these are used to become a leader in the market and entrench users.   The so called first-mover advantages springs to mind, where by businesses first to enter the market will try to maximise their market share before any competitors can encroach on their market.  When Betfair released the first official iphone betting app in October 2010 a similar thing occurred. The Betfair Labs, who are pioneers in the sports betting world and provide incredibly sophisticated concepts as the sports betting exchange (Fan V Fan Betting) saw mobile sports betting as a new opportunity for growth.  They have already signed up thousands of new users by offering an iphone app.

We also have to bear in mind that come Christmas, everyone is going to want a new iPhone or Smart phone whether it is the blackberry or the android etc.  And an increasing market of smartphone users means a larger market potential for mobile casino platforms.

Another advantage of mobile casinos is that you can play unique games. For example at 32Red mobile Casino you can play the Major Millions progressive slot for the mobile and win up to £250k.

Overall, whether you sign up to a mobile casino download now or in 2 years time, I still think that it will be the same outcome.  The market share will move from online casinos using in-browser software to the types of games that you can play on the move via your mobile.  Games such as roulette or blackjack are not too complicated or demanding for the average smart phone graphics, not to mention even more simplified games like slots.
