Mobile Gaming and Gambling: Apps and Offers

 The introduction of the iPhone in 2007 has changed our lives in so many ways. Most people in the modern world are dependent on their mobiles for pretty much everything, and this has driven a huge rise in the need for mobile technology. The world of online gaming is no exception. 

 We have seen a huge growth in demand for mobile gaming platforms in recent years, and many of the big name online casino brands have jumped on board with mobile responsive websites and downloadable apps. Game developers are spending time and putting their resources into developing games that are optimized for a touch screen so players can enjoy their favorite online casino games from wherever they might be. 

 Because the world of mobile casinos is so competitive, we’re also seeing a surge in sites touting exclusive mobile casino bonus offers to entice new punters to sign up to their app or mobile site. These bonus offers generally take the form of a cash bonus when a new player signs up to the site or makes their first deposit. 

 There are two main ways players can access a casino site via mobile: 

 Browser based mobile casinos 

 The simplest way to get onto a casino’s mobile site is via your device’s browser. More and more online casino platforms and games are being designed using mobile responsive technology, and this means we’re going to see more online casinos that can be played from any device. Browser based technology lets you switch between devices so players can use their desktop computer when they are at home and then continue via their mobile when they leave home. 

 Casino apps 

 There’s an app for everything these days and online casinos are no different. We’ve seen a huge amount of growth in the number of online casino apps for both Android and iOS. Apps are great for players who want the convenience of being able to access their favorite casino games at a tap of the finger, right from their device’s screen. Because casino apps are designed exclusively for mobile devices, they are often better optimized for the touch screen than browser based versions and generally include more mobile friendly features. 

 Mobile gaming offers can extend from the very simple through to complicated prize draws, tournaments and other promotions, and if you’re a mobile savvy online punter, it’s well worth looking at and comparing the many and varied apps out there to find the deal that’s right for you.
