Anyone with an iPhone – or any smart phone for that matter – who likes to get their bets on, should seriously consider giving mobile online gambling a go. Now, before all you hotheads start diving into the water, you’re going to need to do some research first, i.e., which online casinos offer a mobile compatible version of their software in the first place. Then, you’ll have to determine which of these casinos are open to players in your country, and THEN, go with the site that best caters to your needs, i.e., bonuses, accepted deposit methods etc.

For all you U.S. players out there, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but there simply are not many mobile online casinos for you to sign up with. In fact, I don’t think there are any – at least none that I know of and would trust wagering at. There could be some out there, so please do post a comment on this post enlightening myself and other readers of such hidden treasures.

Now, for most players elsewhere in the world, your mobile online gaming options are full of possibilities! To simplify things, your best bet is going to Microgaming and Playtech powered online casinos. Now, of course, many powerhouse betting destinations offer games from a variety of software providers, which in that case, you are even more likely to have at least one version of a mobile-compatible betting platform.

In regards to Microgaming, the name you need to look out for is Spin3. In partnership with Microgaming, Spin3 offers one of the most innovative and comprehensive packages of mobile online casino games out there. The graphics are true to Microgaming’s form, and the security is better than Riker’s Island. Roulette, Baccarat, Jacks or Better Video Poker, Keno Scratch Cards and 10 different slots (including progressive monsters like Major Millions, which offers a base jackpot of 250,000), are available for individual download on just about every make and model cell phone in existence.

eCOGRA approved, 32Red – which is our top pick for a Microgaming powered mobile online casino – let’s you check on their website to see if your phone is compatible or not. If it is (and I pretty much can guarantee you it will be), all you have to do is enter your country of residence, mobile number, the casino game you would like to play, and a security code (to verify that you are a human being…with feelings, mind you), and you will then be sent an SMS (text message) with a download link.

As for Playtech, they too offer a solid mobile online casino package. Granted, not every Playtech licensee offers mobile games, but of those that do, there are some top-of-the-line sites to choose from. OCS top picks are Casino Tropez (where currently, players can receive a bonus on every deposit this month) and Will Hill (get a £10 no-deposit bonus just for playing their mobile games). Again, simply enter your details, choose a game to play and wait for a text message to download.

At Will Hill, you can even “scan and play” for instant access. If your phone has a bar code scanner, simply scan the bar code on the computer screen and that’s it. As easy as this is for YOU to gamble online, just be sure you keep stuff like this away from your kids. On that note, think twice before you even allow your teenager to have a mobile phone. They’re gonna be all wired up soon enough in their adult years, so why the rush? And on that note, that’s all I got. Till next time!

Casino Splendido and 32Red Thunderstruck With Ongoing Promotions

Friday, May 14th, 2010

You’ve probably heard by now that Microgaming has launched the new, highly anticipated “Thunderstruck II” video slot. All of the top Microgaming online casinos are talking about it – and better yet, many of them are hosting ongoing promotions in honor of what will very likely turn out to be one of Microgamaing’s more popular video slots, and even more popular than the original “Thunderstruck”.

Not every Microgaming online casino has integrated “Thunderstruck II” on their downloadable software platform. Of those that have, 32Red and Casino Splendido were amongst the first. Considering both of these sites offer a great lineup of promotions to begin with, “Thunderstruck II” or no “Thunderstruck II”, there is lots of free money and extra comp points up for grabs at both of these eCOGRA approved online casinos.

A quick rundown on the promotions offered at both casinos are as follows:

Casino Splendido is still offering their 100% Match bonus worth up to £120 Free with a 30x play-through (all games eligible for play-through according to tiered percentage scale). Their ongoing current promotions include a slots competition (May 14-17) – in which EVERY qualifying player will receive a cash prize and the top three winners will go on for a chance at winning £4,000 – and double comp points on the following select games (May 13-16): Great Galaxy Grab, Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword, Big Top, Stash of the Titans, Adventure Palace, French Roulette, Roulette Royale, Multi-hand European Blackjack, Poker Ride and Aces & Faces Video Poker.

32Red Casino is still giving away their amazing 320% welcome bonus worth £32 Free for every £10 deposited up to £320 Free. The play-through is 30x, and all games go toward meeting it, except for Craps and Megaspin slots. Also, please note there is a maximum stake or coin equivalent of 6.25 per bet until the play-through is met. Ongoing promotions include “Ruby Tuesday” which awards double comp points on the following games (currently): Thunderstruck, Magic Multiplier, Spring Break and Sugar Mama. Every Thursday is “Red Letter Day“, which is a pot of 1,000 free chips shared between five randomly selected active players. Returning depositors in the month of May can receive a 100% bonus up to £32 Free (in addition to regular Club Rouge loyalty bonuses).

March 2010 eCOGRA verified payout percentages at Casino Splendido averaged at 95.87% for all games, slots returned 94.91%,  poker games at 96.77% and table games paid out a whopping 98.73%. Not bad to say the least. As for 32Red Casino, payouts here average an impressive 97.54% on all games, with slots coming it at 95.9%, table games at 98.8% and poker games almost siding on the players advantage at a sharp 99.3%. To put this in context of actual winnings, yesterday’s top winners at 32Red were valued at £6,545 (Neil W.), £5,035 (Mark H.) and £2,822 (Donghong L.). As for Casino Splendido, their top winners this week included £3,000+ wins on Avalon and Texas Bonus Poker Gold, £2,000+ wins on Major Millions (5 Reel), Mega Moolah, Cashapillar, and multi-hand Atlantic City Blackjack, including four separate wins on Thunderstruck II. See there, I told you Thunderstruck II was going to be popular. 🙂
