How Mobile Gambling Works
Mobile gambling is by no means a new concept. For the last 5-6 years, it’s become commonplace for online casinos and sports betting sites to offer their players a mobile-optimised version of their website (or even a dedicated App for iOS and Android users), and while it seems straight forward, many players ask… how it all works! Below, we’re going to look at some of the most common questions players have about mobile gambling.
No. Just because you’re playing from a phone or tablet device doesn’t mean you’re subject to worse payouts that were you to play from a computer or laptop.
Of course, it will come as no real surprise that online casinos exist - within their bare form - to create money. As they’re often corporate businesses with shareholders, investors, and workers, generating income is a requirement, not an option – but the device you play from will NOT affect your chances of winning.
That depends; there are two types of online casino. The first – and the one EVERY online casino has – is a web-based casino. This means you simply open up your Internet Browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox etc.), and head to the casino website URL like you would from a computer.
You’ll then be taken to a mobile-optimised version of the website, which means the page will fit on your screen.
Now some of the bigger companies offer dedicated Apps for their casino – some notable names include Bet365, William Hill, Paddy Power, Coral, and LeoVegas – these Apps are usually available for iOS and Android players, and can be downloaded free from the AppStore and PlayStore respectively.
In general, you’ll find all the games you’d find on your desktop or laptop, available to play from your mobile device.
Note: not every casino chooses to offer all their games to mobile players – it varies by the casino, and while it’s unlikely to affect your playing experience, it’s worth bearing in mind.
Of course; just remember, all casino games - whether a Casino Table Games, a Video Slot, or Video Poker machine, are built to be lucrative towards the casino. This means, that as time passes, that game will generate the casino a profit – so over the long-run you won’t win.
HOWEVER – for the purpose of a casual gambling session – of course you can win! So long as you’re not playing for days and weeks on end (and even then, you could win), you stand a fantastic chance of winning – playing on a mobile device doesn’t hinder your chances whatsoever!
