The advent of mobile gambling undoubtedly signalled a revolution in the modern world of online gaming, as it brought casinos, sports betting, poker and bingo to customers' fingertips and enabled them to access these services wherever they go. So what does one need to become a mobile casino customer?

Mobile Gambling Requirements

First and foremost, players need a mobile device. This can be a smartphone such as an iPhone, Blackberry, Android, or any of those advanced cellular phones in the smartphone field offered by leading companies like HTC, Nokia, Sony Ericsson and LG. Alternatively it can also be a tablet, such as the famous iPad or Android Tablets.

All leading mobile casinos, including those listed in the OCR directory, should have a page (accessible online or through your smartphone) explaining which mobile devices are supported by their mobile software. Not all devices are compatible, but iPhones and Android's tend to be the most popular.

Lastly, you need to be able to access an Internet connection with your phone. This means having a 3G or 4G connection or having regular access to Wireless internet at home or in the office. This shouldn't be too much of a problem if you have a decent plan with your mobile services provider.

Downloading Apps

Once you have confirmed that your device is compatible, just follow your chosen mobile casinos download instructions to place the app on your smartphone. Once you have finished downloading, you will be able to register the account, deposit some money or take advantage of welcome offers, and be good to go.

Alternatively, some mobile casinos offer selected games in instant-play format for devices like the iPhone, iPad and Android. It takes only a few simple steps to set up accounts for this format, and to have several games at your fingertips ready to be played in browser-based mode.


Mobile casinos are often fully synced with online casinos, sharing the same username, password, and account.
