The last one and a half centuries have been a huge one for online gaming with hundreds, if not thousands, of operators launching online casino and poker skins. Since the first online casinos launched in 1994, there are now more than 600 casinos operating across the world and promoting their games to specific markets such as the UK, Europe, America and Australia.
One of the biggest technological advancements in the last few years has been the growth of mobile gaming. More and more casinos are launched a mobile feature for their players which allows you to play mobile casinos games wherever you go. Mobile casinos don’t usually have the same games and graphics as the online casinos however they are still run using the same account at the main internet casino. If you go to a site such as 32Red.com or William Hill Casino for example you’ll see a link in the top right corner for “mobile games”.
The main advantage of playing mobile casino games is that you can easily download games such as blackjack, roulette and video slots straight to your mobile phone. In order to download a casino game to your mobile all you need to do is visit the mobile casino, choose a game to download and then fill in your mobile number, type of device and your personal information. The game will then be instantly sent to your phone through SMS (or in the case of an iPhone or Android as an App saved to your hard disk).
The ability to play real money casino games on your mobile is really beneficial to players. It means that you no longer have to be at your computer or access the internet in order to play games. If you’re on the bus, underground, train or even waiting at the airport for example than you can play high quality games like video slots and Thunderstruck on your phone.
A lot of mobile casino games have big jackpots too. Since jackpots are at the essence of casinos (hence why so many players waste money in the slot machines) the ability to launch and run their own progressive mobile slots jackpots is a huge incentive. At Wild Jack and All Slots Mobile Casino you can play progressive jackpot slots games such as Megah Moolah and Treasure Nile with mobile jackpots worth more than £500,000. You can make a deposit directly from your WAP mobile device or iPhone and play these games for real money.
A lot of mobile casinos also offer exclusive mobile casino bonuses and loyalty points to new players. At 32Red Mobile you can claim a £50 instant deposit bonus if you deposit and play in any of their mobile games. Other casinos, such as William Hill and WinAsUGo mobile also offer free sign-up bonuses ranging from £2 up to £10 per player. Although these come with their own rollover and withdrawal requirements (Will Hill is usually 25x rollover withdrawal requirements) they still give you an opportunity to try out their mobile games for free without risking any of your own money.
