PLAYING ONLINE CASINOS ON ANDROID TABLET OR SMARTPHONE DEVICES
One of the exciting new waves in the online casino is the shift to mobile platforms. It's not surprising given the explosion of mobile device use throughout the world in recent years, and the growth expected in the mobile gaming realm. It's predicted that more than 150 million people worldwide will have placed a wager using a mobile device within the next five years. That fast growth is prompting online casinos to start catering to mobile users, an important segment of their market in terms of future growth, as even those players who would primarily or almost exclusively play from home may still opt to wager through an online casino with a mobile presence, in the event they do want to take advantage of it at some point.
Microgaming is at the forefront of this shift to mobile, and stands as the current record holder for the largest jackpot doled out on a mobile device, a healthy 3.7 million pounds. Nor is it only Android devices that the Microgaming software is compatible with; Apple users aren`t left out of the online gaming fun courtesy Microgaming, nor are users of Canada`s own Blackberry.
The Microgaming casinos allow mobile gaming through their flash casinos, which require no download, and allow users (both mobile and otherwise) to play Microgaming`s games directly through the browser of their online casino. Not every Microgaming casino offers this feature however, so players who have an eye on gaming over their mobile devices, whether now or in the future (and that will likely include a large majority of you), will need to find an onine casino that does feature flash play through their website.
One of the most impressive aspects of the Microgaming mobile software is that it will automatically detect the specifications of the mobile user`s device and adjust the settings accordingly.
While not every Microgaming game has been converted to flash for play over mobile devices, nearly half of them have been, including many of the most popular ones, and more and more get the flash conversion treatment by the day. The games, once converted, are very faithful to the originals in terms of their graphics and sounds, while being optimized for display on a small screen, and for controlling via touch screens.
If you're an Android or other mobile user, you won't find a better selection of games available for your handheld device than through Microgaming-powered online casinos for Canadians.
