A 5-Minute Guide to Mobile Gaming

As smartphones and tablet devices become more powerful, we are able to carry out more tasks from them. Today you can do virtually everything from your smartphone, from paying bills to catching up with your favourite television shows, and of course, you can also play all of your favourite casino games.

If you are keen to get started playing on your phone, whether you want to play slots, card games or anything else, then this 5-minute guide contains all the information you could possibly need.

Accessing a Mobile Casino

Don’t worry if you don’t have the latest model of smartphone; mobile casinos can be enjoyed from the vast majority of devices running Android, iOS and Windows, even those that are a few years old.

Today, the vast major of online casinos (including Plaza Royal) have mobile compatible websites. This means that you simply need to visit the casino website from your smartphone or tablet browser in order to get started. However, some casinos do offer apps that you can download from the App Store or Google Play.

There are various advantages and disadvantages to the two methods of accessing a casino. For example, downloading an app will use up storage space on your device, but it may well give you faster access to your favourite games. Conversely, using a mobile compatible website does not require any storage space, but accessing the casino becomes a slightly longer process.

Ultimately, both methods will offer very similar mobile gaming experiences as in nearly every case, casinos will offer exactly the same games through a mobile website as through an app. As such, you shouldn’t worry too much about which method you use to start playing.

Mobile Casino Games

There are thousands of games available to players through their mobile devices and no matter which type of game you enjoy, you will find that they have been carefully adapted so that they are easy to play on a small screen and just as enjoyable. Mobile casinos will offer you slots, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, live dealer games, scratch cards, and more.

Some people feel that playing slots on a mobile device is actually closer to the experience of playing in a land casino than when playing on a desktop. This is because most modern slot machines use touchscreen interfaces that are similar to what you have on your smartphone. Thanks to the power of modern smartphones, mobile slots have fantastic graphics, and playing them can be a truly immersive experience.

Blackjack is another game that is particularly well suited to playing on a smartphone.  This because you don’t need to be able to see much when playing and all of the necessary buttons (hit, stand, split, etc.) can easily fit on a small screen without sacrificing any of the gameplay experience. Often you will simply need to tap the screen to select a chip value, tap to place your bet, and then tap to deal the cards. Furthermore, it is a game that works well in portrait mode, so playing one handed becomes easy.

More and more casinos are offering special versions of roulette for mobile players. These games are designed to be played in portrait mode and they make using the complicated betting area very simple, even on small screens. Essentially, they allow you to position your chips easily and the roulette wheel is then shown on a separate screen once all bets have been placed. Thanks to this, even roulette can be enjoyed on very small screens.

These principles can be applied to any casino game, which is why there are no limitations as to what you can play on a mobile device. Even live dealer games look fantastic on small screens, so you can enjoy the realistic experience no matter where you find yourself.

In short, mobile casinos in no way limit the games you can play, rather they allow you to enjoy all of your favourites while on the go and in a huge variety of situations.

Mobile Gaming Banking Options

You may think that depositing and withdrawing funds will be trickier from a mobile device. However, it is extremely easy. You will be able to use all of the same payment methods at a mobile casino as you can when playing on the computer. This means that you can deposit with credit and debit cards, e-wallets, prepaid cards, and so on, in seconds. Furthermore, there are a number of payment methods that have been specifically developed for mobile players, enjoying that depositing and withdrawing is secure and easy in every situation. A growing number of casinos allow you to use services such as Apple Pay for payments, which makes mobile banking easier than ever before.

Mobile Gaming Promotions

You are probably well aware that most online casinos offer players various bonuses and run a number of promotions. The good news is that you can enjoy all of these from mobile devices. This means that you will be able to enjoy welcome bonuses, reload bonuses, loyalty schemes, free spin offers, and so on.

The better news is that some casinos run promotions specifically for mobile players. It means that you may be able to enjoy free spins to use on specific mobile slots or there may be special competitions that can only be entered from mobile devices. If you are playing from your mobile device, then be sure to keep a careful eye out for these kind of promotions, as some of them can be extremely generous

Advantages and Disadvantages to Mobile Gaming

There are many advantages to mobile gaming, most of which are self-evident. For instance, you can enjoy your favourite games with ease no matter where you are as long as you have an internet connection. The games can be loaded directly in a web browser, so you don’t have to worry about installing apps. You just need to visit your preferred online casino, login, and you can start playing straightaway.

However, there is no denying that there are some downsides. To begin with, for some people playing on a small screen is never going to be as immersive as playing on a big screen. It is a similar story with sound effects; while you can play with headphones on, some people may prefer not to and enjoy the fuller sound offered by computer speakers. There are a few other downsides to be aware of. For example, playing games is likely to be draining on your battery and if you are somewhere without a charger this could become a problem.

Ultimately, mobile gaming is excellent in some situations and not in others. Realistically, you are likely to enjoy a mixture of playing on a mobile device and playing on your computer. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages and there is a place for both of them.

To Conclude

Mobile gaming, and in particular mobile casino gaming, is a brilliant way to enjoy a huge range of games. It allows you to enjoy a few spins on a slot machine or a few rounds of blackjack at almost any time that you desire. Thanks to the power of modern smartphones and tablets, the games look great and the playing experience is truly engaging.
