Best Mobile Casinos in 2013

Last year was a big one for the mobile casino industry, but things are set to get even bigger

Mobile casinos are gradually surpassing online casinos for popularity, as the whole world migrates toward smartphones and tablet devices. Today, players can access all the best casino games via their iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry, with games built to be compatible with specific smartphones.

As mobile gambling becomes more popular, online casinos are increasingly tailoring their products to suit this trend. In addition, many of them are focusing their bonuses, promotions, and other features on the needs and wishes of their mobile customers.

Best of 2012

Mobile gambling reached almost equal footing with online gambling last year. The leading software developers embraced new technology, bringing mobile players more choice than ever before. A number of them, such as Microgaming, took the step of introducing games that are compatible with the HTML5 platform.

Operators also expanded smartphone compatibility, and added the necessary security precautions that come with it. A number of leading firms launched instant-play mobile games for iPhones. Bet365, for example, introduced six titles for play directly from the iPhone browser, and other mobile casinos are expected to follow suit.

What to expect in 2013 

This year should see a continuation in the convergence of social gaming with online and mobile gambling. The popularity of social gaming saw a number of gambling operators begin to offer social casino games for mobile users in 2012, with a number of them also announcing plans for social mobile gaming in the coming year.

Software giant Playtech recently signed a deal that will see it provide real-money social casino, poker, bingo and rummy products for mobile gamers. Zynga's decision to launch a social poker app for all Nokia Asha Touch devices is sure to spark a lot of competition from rival games manufacturers. 

Brands to watch in 2013

Bet365 Mobile Casino performed strongly last year, and will once again be a brand to watch in 2013. It is supported by all the leading platforms, offers a tremendous range of games, and when you open an account and make a deposit of $20 (or currency equivalent) or more, you receive a 100% bonus of up to $200.

All Slots Mobile is another online casino that has produced a fantastic mobile product. Thanks to its partnership with Microgaming, All Slots is one of the first to adopt new technology, and at the beginning of the new year offers 11 popular games with the new HTML 5 platform.
