We’ve come a long way since the first introduction of slots machines in the 20th century. Gaming as a whole has become a worldwide phenomenon, and thanks to the internet and lately, the inclusion of the smartphone in our everyday lives, it is more accessible than ever.
There are several big leaps in casino games that we can mention – the first was Microgaming’s foray into the world of online casino games, followed by the inclusion of instant play casinos, and finally the “minimization” of casino games in the form of casino apps on mobile devices.
There are literally thousands of different casino apps, some supported by the big online casino brands and others, that emulate the experience for free and are available for download on Google’s Play Store. You can browse through some of the biggest names and most excellent app offer at AndroidCasinoApps.org, specifically tailored for Android devices.
Like we mentioned before, the biggest leap in online casino gaming seems to be, apart from the obvious improvements in graphics, games variety and quality, bonus features and others, the accessibility of said games.
If we compare online casinos of the 90’s with those of the late 2000’s, we will notice that “instant play” is a much more sought out alternative. Players no longer need to download software to be able to play their favorite games – they only need to log in, and start playing.
This in itself caused some problems since now sites need to support other technologies in order to render games in a browser. The same technology was adopted to mobile gaming as well, since Flash was still “the thing” back then, however it made the market separated due to Apple and its policy of not supporting Flash. This of course changed with the introduction of HTML5 – the 5th iteration of the most popular hyper text markup language. HTML5 made it possible for casino app developers to create instant play games available on the Play Store as well as the official websites of the casinos.
Instant play nowadays is pretty much a standard – all you ever need is the latest version of your mobile OS to be able to access the online casino. If you are not fan of mobile casino apps, you can play your favorite games by typing in the casino’s URL into the mobile browser and a responsive web page will be displayed where you will be able to play instant play games at your leisure.
Thanks to Google’s Chrome mobile browser, you can even create shortcut to your favorite mobile casino which you can then start up from the native screen of your Android powered mobile device.
Overall it is a powerful feature which grants you unlimited and unrestricted functionality that is also unhindered by the occasional update. Still, you will need to be connected to the internet in order to be able to play so it is a feature mostly desired by the casino players who play for real money.
