The gambling industry has adapted greatly to the influence of the internet on business models. Many traditional brick and mortar casinos are adopting an online wing today. The ease of online operation has also allowed many new enterprises to enter the gambling market that may have initially found it difficult to cut a niche for themselves.
 
Mobile casino is the new trend in gambling circles.

What is a mobile casino?

Mobile casino is the playing of casino games from a mobile device. This could be a phone, tablet or a PC. The games played on mobile are similar to the ones that would be found in a brick and mortar casino. The rules and procedures are also the same. The only difference is the platform- virtual vs real. Losses and wins are not virtual though.
 
Mobile casino games are played through the use of apps developed by the house and downloaded by users.

How safe is it?

Gambling online is just as safe as walking into an ordinary casino and placing stakes. It could even be argued that a mobile casino is safer because it can be done at home, away from the overwhelming figures at a conventional betting house.
 
In terms of money safety, your money is absolutely safe in an online casino. All you need to do is choose a legally registered online gambling platform. This gives you a genuine channel to address any complaints that may arise.

How does one play in a mobile casino?

A mobile app is all you require to play in a mobile casino. Oh, and money, if you are in it for the win. Here are three easy steps to get in:
 
1. Download the app that is compatible with your Android or iOS device
 
2. Create an account using your personal details
 
3. Load money into your mobile casino account and gamble away
 
 
Most mobile casino apps will allow you to play free games for practice, but there are no wins for these.

Is mobile casino border restricted?

Like many other online trades, there are many grey areas regards gambling online across countries. Essentially, the online nature of the game aims to remove cross-border restrictions and can be practiced from anywhere on the globe. Technical hitches may however arise. If, for instance, you are in a country where the form of payment allowed by the app is not supported, playing becomes complicated.
 
Countries have differing gambling regulations. Some have monopolies, others aim to shut the practice out completely. Others are pretty easy with it. The absence of a unified online gambling legal framework continues to be one of the biggest challenges that mobile casinos face.

Which are the popular mobile casino apps?

Bet365, Slotty Vegas, Betsson, Cashmio, Jackpot City, Ruby Fortune and Spin palace are among the most downloaded apps in this category.
