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!

Microgaming Powered Spin3 Launches Avalon for Mobile Online Casino Platform

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

If you’re a smart phone owner and still haven’t given mobile online casino gaming a go, now is as good a time as any. Heck, you can even give mobile gaming a go on your outdated cell phone – although I have to say that the smart phone experience is light year’s ahead. Granted, the mobile gaming experience also depends on the actual mobile platform downloaded to your cell phone.

Platforms, like that of Microgaming partner, Spin3, are certainly the best of the best when it comes to mobile online casino gaming. Being powered by Microgaming, not only does Spin3 provide cutting edge graphics and gaming innovation, their portfolio of mobile-compatible casino games is probably the largest there is. In terms of compatibility, Spin3 currently supports over 2,000 handsets via the GameWire Java platform.

Spin3’s latest addition to its family of nearly twenty Java-based mobile games is “Avalon” – Microgaming’s popular bonus video slot themed on the classic tale and legend of King Arthur. Offering a scatter symbol that awards up to twelve free spins and a chance at earning 7x winnings on original stakes, it’s not difficult to see why Avalon has become one of Microgaming’s more popular slots. Just the fact that Spin3 is adapting Avalon into a mobile online casino game is a testament to the games enormous success.

In a recent press release, Spin3 CEO, Matti Zinder, said the company is delighted to include Avalon in it’s portfolio. According to Zinder, “In the last year we have made great advances in developing web applications for smartphones with advanced web browsers like the iPhone and the Android. At the same time, our GameWire Java platform remains a fundamental part of our business. Java games enable us to support as broad a range of handsets and as many customers as possible, which is great news for our clients.  Mobile penetration is high (in Eastern Europe), but people are not necessarily using the latest handsets. It is important that Spin3 is offering a dynamic portfolio of games that are appealing and, more importantly, available to the region so that we can support our clients who are looking to expand in these new markets.”

To test our Spin3’s mobile online casino platform for yourself, OCS highly recommends the mobile package offered through All Slots Casino. It’s one of few online casinos with an eCOGRA audited mobile platform, publishing monthly payout percentage reports (currently averaging over a 96% return). Sorry US players, All Slots is bound by Microgaming’s non-US stance. Read the All Slots Casino Review for more information.
