Casino Games You Didn’t Think Would Work on Mobile

January 16th, 2019

It's surprising how many casino games work on mobile devices. Let's look at a few that may surprise you.

A decade or two ago, walking about winning jackpots on some little box would have sounded like something from the Back to The Future films – but we know that millions are being paid out to lucky mobile players every month. But some casino players are still in the dark and assume they can't play the best games via mobile devices. If you're in this club then check out the casino games you didn't think would work on your mobile, but actually play like a dream...

Progressive jackpot games

Progressive jackpots are making the web's luckiest gamers instantly rich, with payouts frequently ranging from £50,000 to a million and beyond. For some reason, many players are unaware that games like Mega Moolah, Divine Fortune, Joker Millions and King Cashalot can be played anywhere you have an internet connection. So yes, you could hit a win on the number 22 bus and take a limo home.

Scratch cards

The concept of playing scratch cards on a mobile phone might seem a bit bizarre, but today's software houses are dishing up digital scratchies that look like the paper version and have prizes to match. While we're not yet at the stage where holographic scratch cards pop-up off your screen to be rubbed, a swipe of your finger does the trick via your mobile screen. So, if there's a queue at the local shop, you can always 'dial up' for a scratch card instead.

Live casino games

When it comes to realism, live casino games are the connoisseur's choice – and one that's available via your mobile. So long as you have a good internet connection, you can beam the casino tables live to your screen, including blackjack, roulette, baccarat and other classics. The growing mobile gaming market means that the big developers are specifically ensuring their live products run smoothly and look great on the smaller screen. You can find some amazing live themed games too, such as Age of The Gods Roulette.


While it can be played for fun, Poker is one of the more serious online casino games. There are still more than a few expert gamers playing via mobile devices – indeed, some of the slickest Apps in casinos are poker-centric, such as the Poker Stars App. If you're trying to rise up the web poker ranks and into the big time, either online or offline, then you can take part in countless satellite tournaments via mobile and pads. If classic poker isn't your thing, then video poker also works well via mobile, offering an excellent strategic game where you can try and develop your edge against the house.

Ensuring Mobile Game Quality

Some gamers are apprehensive about playing casino games via mobile, due to security and internet quality, but both issues are nothing to worry about. With 4G offering great connectivity and 5G to come, few gamers report downtime.

Equally, the high tech security is exactly the same as playing via desktop or laptop. However, if games are slow due to the memory needed or if you do happen to hit a weak internet zone, then many games offer the option of increasing the speed by selecting a lower quality level.

Some casinos offer instant web browser functionality, while others are either App only or App optional; either way, there are thousands of games to play on the fly. You'll also find an increasing number of online casinos that offer PaybyPhone banking, making it faster than ever to try your luck.

Ultimately, most online casino games now work on your mobile. So if a buddy tells you it's an urban myth, we suggest a little wager.
