End of Flash – What It Means For Mobile Casino

Adobe confirmed last week that it won't develop Flash for mobile devices any longer.

Adobe's announcement last week that it will no longer develop Flash for smartphone devices designed by Android and other companies will impact mobile gambling - but not necessarily for the worse.

End of Flash Era

Adobe released its Adobe Flash Player last week as its last major update for Android devices. According to Adobe the company will continue to provide security patches for Android users, but no further versions of the player will be made available.

The company said it would now focus on HTML5, as that is now universally supported on all the big mobile devices, and therefore is the best solution for creating and deploying content in a browser across mobile platforms.

Consequences for Android

Android-owning mobile gamblers will benefit both security-wise and from the focus on different innovations. Firstly, the removal of flash actually reduces threats to the operating system, according to online PC websites.

Secondly, we already saw the release by Microgaming last week of Android Air, a casino platform based on technology provided by Adobe. The platform will allow for faster games development and means casinos can deploy a wider range of games for smartphone operating systems.

Eight games have already been added to the Android Air platform, and by the end of the year 20 new casino games will be available at All Slots Mobile and other mobile casinos. the games will feature a more navigable interface, instant access to the mobile casino's main lobby and banking and bonus promo features.
