Online punters can legally gamble on graphically-advanced and entertaining casino games directly on their mobile and tablet devices, for real money, without fearing security, safety or fairness issues. Here we explain exactly how to do so.
Best mobile casino sites
Mobile and tablet gambling has long been available, but punters tend to think of smartphone sports betting apps and mobile keno and lotto betting agencies when talking about mobile gambling. What tends to be overlooked are legitimate mobile and tablet casino games available for real money play, largely because the topic is still considered taboo. But if online and mobile sports wagering is fine, then in our eyes, so too is portable casino gaming and betting.
Best mobile casinos for real money play
Before we delve in to the available games, lets take a look at the mobile companies which offer the hundreds of high quality and innovative titles players can enjoy for both real money and free practice play.

Players have the option of installing a genuine market app for their mobile and tablets – the Regal/Royal Vegas Casino holds the same interface and list of games as the Royal Vegas Mobile optimised site, but instead of a browser-based interface, tis is dedicated software which can be installed from Google Play and the App Store on to your device.
It is branded Regal Vegas Casino in all application distributing stores for marketing purposes, and once installed, players gain access to real money mode and free play mode.
Alternatively, once players bring up any the above mobile casino sites in their device’s browser, they can create their own casino Web app which acts just like a native market app, but instead of installing software on to the device’s hard drive, all data is processed via the Internet (so a data-connection is required), and the interface eliminates the URL toolbar, allowing for more gameplay space. Access your browser settings and tap ‘add to home screen’ and an app icon will be instantly created.

What is the best mobile for online casinos?
Well obviously a smartphone, but after that it comes down to personal preference. This scribe uses an iPhone 6 and it excels playing mobile games. While other staff members use Samsung Galaxy devices and vow that they will never go back to Apple.
