Apple vs. Android: the battle for the mobile casino games empire

Many online casinos are beginning to offer mobile games as an alternative for their customers. This is a great way to gain new business and keep the ones they have happy. It’s a very convenient way for users to access the casinos form anywhere in the world. You no longer need to be in front of your laptop or PC to gamble on your favorite games.

Mobile casinos are not a traveling circus like tent that features gambling games and moves from town to town. The name can be confusing if you have never heard of it before. Mobile casino games are an application that the official site has to allow players the ability to access the site from a multitude of mobile devices such as phones and tablets. This application is downloaded on to your device and is completely free to do so.

There are two main devices that sites use for their mobile casinos. The first being Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad. The second are Android powered devices. Both have their own unique characteristics and advantages.

As of now the Apple mobile casino application is the most widely used. If a site offers a mobile casino, it always has at least an Apple version. This is mainly due to the popularity of Apples products. The iPhone has been a huge success thus far and is the most popular phone on the market.

The iPad is also a popular device that has the PC tablet market cornered and rightly so. The iPad is far superior to other products out there and should remain a-top this market for some time.

Without sounding too much like an endorser for Apple, I have to admit that Apple is by far the best option for mobile casino enthusiast. The Android option is gaining steam, but it lacks the user base to make any real push against Apple.

The one main advantage Apple based mobile casino games has over the Android market is the iPad. Having such a big screen to use is obviously a distinct advantage. Personally I would rather play on a 10” screen versus a 4” one or even smaller.

I have to be completely honest here and say that I do not own any Apple devices besides an iPod. I have used both methods to access mobile casinos however, and can say with confidence that the Apple version is far superior. The release of the new Samsung smart phone may sway the tide a bit, but not enough to make the Android application a real player.

The real winner in all this is the players. Having at least two options to access online casinos is always a great thing. If we only had to choose Apple, It make us have to ditch our current devices and buy the Apple one if we didn’t already have it.

Mobile casinos are still in their infancy so to speak, so the market will surely change. It’s made great strides in the short it has been around and will only get better.
