Mobile Roulette Available at Top Euro Online Casinos

The popular betting game of Roulette is one of few games offered in the "live dealer" format at online casinos. As discussed in previous articles here at OCS, live dealer online gambling is a viable alternative for bettors who feel more comfortable seeing a real face and a real roulette wheel in front of them - albeit the computer monitor still serves as a window for the action. It's simply brick 'n mortar casino gambling, but with a realtime video feed.

The fact of the matter, however, is that live dealer gaming is not nearly as popular as the traditional way of gambling online - downloading a software platform or accessing an instant no-download Flash version of the casino software. Another mode of online gambling that you've likely already heard of, and which is also more popular than the live dealer format, is the increasingly innovative mobile gambling platform.

More similar to playing the downloadable software platform, mobile gaming allows bettors to access select casino games via their mobile phones and place real money wagers. Currently, as this is a relatively new form of online wagering, there are just a handful of online casinos offering mobile gaming capabilities - most of them being focused on the European sector. Also, the game selection is more limited than what is offered on a standard computer download. As mentioned, Roulette is one of the games available in mobile format - along with other popular casino table games like Blackjack and Baccarat. Craps is still in the works, but you can definitely find video poker and a good selection of video slots, including progressive jackpot games.

Since Roulette is a pretty straightforward game (at least as far as placing bets is concerned), a mobile version of the game translates well. And with new, innovative phones like the Blackberry and iPhone in circulation, mobile apps offer the same great graphics and user-friendliness offered at downloadable online casinos. To get started playing mobile online roulette, you first must find an online casino that offers a mobile platform.

Unfortunately, U.S. players don't have much to choose from. In fact, I wouldn't recommend U.S. players to partake in this form of betting just yet - at least until those top software platforms offering mobile gaming begin to accept U.S. players.

For everyone else, out topmost recommendation are the mobile apps offered through Euro Casinos in the Microgaming network (using the Spin3 platform) and Playtech Software powered casinos like Casino Tropez. A long-running, reputable European focused online gaming destination, Tropez offers mobile gaming, game downloads and instant Flash play under one account. Downloading mobile games at Tropez is as simple as locating your mobile phone make and model in a dropdown menu and requesting an SMS text message that will be used to send a link to your phone for securely downloading the game.
