What’s the difference between Android & iOS Casinos?
Well in truth there isn’t much of a difference nowadays, to run a successful online casino, you’ll need to ensure your casinos apps run smoothly on both software operators. The only noticeable difference between the two is probably the screen size. So, if you’ve got a smart phone you’ll always be able to access your favourite mobile casinos and experience everything that mobile gaming has to offer.
How do we rank and rate Android Casinos?
When reviewing our top android casinos, we follow the same strict review criteria that we have for both iPhone casinos and windows phone casinos.
Usability: We test out both the mobile optimized version of the casino and their casinos app to ensure that they both run smoothly on the android operating system. Meaning they load quickly, smoothly and anyone no matter their experience level will be able to access their favourite mobile slots easily on both phones or tablets.
Casino Bonus: All the top casinos should offer their android users exclusive bonuses or at the very least a welcome bonus that is geared towards their mobile casino. Whether this is a deposit bonus like Spin Palace offers of extra spins bonus like Rizk Casino has for their android users were not picky. When casino sites offer mobile casino bonuses to their players this says to us that they’re dedicated to offering the best product they can.
Mobile Slots: We like to see a variety of software providers in the casinos games library, whether it’s a selection of top games with progressive jackpots, a variety of video poker games on offer or a great range of table games the more the better. With mobile casinos still being quite new, there is a reduced rate of games available. So, the bigger the selection the better the casino. Especially since so many software providers are making their games for mobiles like Leander games, Genesis Games, Yggdrasil Gaming, Elk Studios and Amaya Gaming we’re really spoilt for choice with what’s available nowadays.
Live Dealer Casino:
Gambling Apps: Yes, the casino may be optimized for your Sony Xperia handset, but does it have a dedicated android casinos app that you can download from the homepage or the android apps store/Google play store? Fortunately, a lot of popular casinos have this option available should you wish to play your favourite games on the go. But not all do, we will mark down the casinos which you’ll be able to play from their android apps and ones that you can only play from their mobile optimized website.
Banking Options: The more payment methods available on your mobile device the better, being able to fund your account quickly using methods such as PayPal or a debit card is great. Especially when you sign up to fast payout casinos such as Guts who will settle select payment methods on the same day. You may even find that you’ve signed up to a bitcoin casino who will accept payments in cryptocurrency.
How to download an android casino app:
There are quite a few options when it comes to downloading your chosen online casinos android app:
Firstly, you can head straight to the homepage from your android mobile device and find the download casino app button. This will install the app to your home screen where you will be able to log in to your account and play all your favourite games.
The second method you have is to go to the Google Play Store, previously this wasn’t an option because they didn’t allow casinos to host their apps. However, this has changed and now you’ll be able to find all your favorites such as Casumo Casino, Guts Casino and Palace Casino apps ready for you to download.
The third method is to go straight to the android app store, this is completely dependent on the phone you use. For instance, for Samsung Galaxy users you’ll be able to head to the Samsung app store, where as Sony Xperia users will have to head to the Sony App Store. So, depending on which android devices you’re using will determine the app store you use, but keep in mind the app might not be there.
Android Casino FAQ
What Slots and Table Games Are available on an Android Device?
As always with all mobile devices you’ll get a reduced selection of slots and games available, how many depends on the casino software’s that’s in use. Playtech based casinos will have a smaller selection of games available down to the fact that it’s an older software and they haven’t converted as many of the older titles. Whereas a Netent based casino such as Leo Vegas will have more games available for mobile users purely because they have brought out more games recently ready for your online android casino.
Is there Free Play?
Not every casino will allow you to play android casino games for free, some are only real money casinos which means you’ll have to deposit and register. We will however while reviewing each casino make a note of whether you’ll be able to play your favourite games for free. You’ll be able to find out more information as to whether there is free play available on their casino guide section of the site.
Can I claim my welcome bonus on my mobile?
Of course, you can, all top online casinos allow their players to sign up and claim their welcome offer through their mobile device. You just need to ensure that you read the terms and conditions and use the correct banking method first though. Once you’ve made your deposit you’ll be credited your bonus money as normal. You’ll then be able to start playing casino games for real money,
