Posted On: Feb. 28, 2013

No segment of the online casino gaming industry is as hot as mobile casino games. The rapid rise of touch screen-enabled devices like smartphones and tablets has taken place even faster than most experts expected, and even people in developing countries now have access to these gadgets. In an effort to get their games where the people are, online casino companies are spending considerable time, money and effort to have mobile versions of their games ready to go. the biggest names already have done it, smaller companies are following suit, and new entirely mobile casinos are also springing up.

The main advantage of mobile online casino games is the ability to play almost anywhere. While normal online casinos can be played on some devices anywhere there is an active internet connection, mobile devices do them one better by being able to also utilize cellular signals (in most cases). That gives players another level of freedom, something the casino companies like because it can get people playing in situations where they may not have considered it before - say, on the train on the way to work,

Some no download games could already be played on smartphones or tablets with web browsers that support Flash. Other devices do not (like Apple's mega popular iPhone and iPad), so casino software providers have been devising apps that serve the games straight to the users without going through a browser. These apps are usually found through links or QR codes on the online casino's website or in app stores in countries where real money mobile gambling is legal.

One of the drawbacks of mobile online casino games is that the processing power of smartphones and tablets is still weaker than most desktop computers, meaning the games tend to have less robust graphics and sound. This is also changing quickly with each passing year, and it won't be long before the gap is closed enough that it won't be apparent except under close examination. It's safe to say that mobile online casinos will only get more popular and more numerous between now and 2020.
