You may associate playing on an online casino with sitting at your computer. Why not shake things up a little and start using a UK mobile casino instead? Increasingly, UK online casinos are providing mobile versions of their websites for gamblers to enjoy. You could find that it turns your mobile phone into a pocket piggy bank.
The joy of motion
When you play at a UK mobile casino, you can have a flutter on the roulette wheel or the video slots whilst you are out and about. Play poker as you wait for a bus, or whip out your phone when you are having a coffee break and play a quick scratch card game on your mobile rather than heading to the corner shop to buy one.
Concentrate on compatibility
When downloading a mobile casino app or playing casino games on the mobile version of your favourite casino’s desktop site, it is crucial to ensure that the software you are using is compatible with your particular make and model of smartphone – and that includes your operating system. If you have an Android phone, for instance, you will need an Android casino app, or one that is compatible with Android phones (though it may also be compatible with other operating systems too). You will also find plenty of iPhone casino sites and apps for mobiles – just be sure to check that you have the right generation of iOS for the app.
Rake in those bonuses
At the moment, casinos are very keen to lure new gamblers in to play on their fresh and new mobile sites. As a result, they have created a raft of bonuses that are designed especially for mobile customers. Look out for mobile casino bonus codes at your favoured casino and you can get free spins, a multiplied deposit and perhaps even a free upgrade to VIP account status.
Taking a break
The culture of the present day is such that we are often never without our mobile phones. When we are at work or out with friends, our phone is always either in our pocket or in our hands. When we are asleep, it is right there on the dresser ready to be grabbed the moment we wake up. All the time, our phones are alerting us to new notifications on social media, or to new emails or updates to our apps. This can be exciting as it keeps us connected to those that we love and ensures that we stay up to date with work. However, whilst with a desktop version of a casino it is easy to physically walk away from the computer after your poker game has finished, gamblers may find it harder to move away from that game of poker, roulette or blackjack when they carry it around in their pocket inside their mobile phone. Be aware of this and control your gameplay by switching off casino notifications on your phone, or disciplining yourself to play for a limited time, such as (say) an hour a week. Log off when you are not using the casino, and place the app in a position that is not too prominent on your phone if that helps you.
Check out apps before downloading them
Many online casinos are now offering their customers apps, which is great. However, sometimes these apps can be limited in their reach. Some of them will let you view your balance and play games, for instance, but they will not support deposits and withdrawals: you will need to log on to the mobile or desktop version of the casino’s website in order to do that. Look out for real money casino apps if you want to be able to manage your finances using an app. Apps can be good for ease of access to casino games, though, and they can be set up to provide you with instant notifications of (for instance) new live dealer poker games starting up in the near future.
Now you are ready to go mobile
These tips will make it easier for you to make the switch from desktop to mobile casinos. Many gamblers find that it is useful to use both mobile and desktop versions of casino websites as then they get the best of both worlds: two sets of bonuses and two subtly different types of casino gameplay.
