A Glance at Playing Casino Games on App or in Web Browser

Due to the massive and ever-increasing popularity of online mobile casinos these days, a huge number of mobile casino apps and games are available, and frequently being released.

There are two general methods for playing casino games on mobile devices.

Method 1 – Download an App

For both Android and Apple devices, there is the standard option of downloading apps from Google Play or the App Store, respectively. Here you will find a selection of free and paid-for casino apps and games. This is particularly a good place to go if you are just looking for casual games that, e.g. don’t involve gambling with real money.

Otherwise, most casino apps are available directly from their casino websites. To download them:

  • Open your mobile device’s web browser.
  • Find the casino by doing a web search or enter the casino’s web address in the browser’s address bar.
  • Online casino sites will differ in layout. Once you have accessed the site, look for the Download option. Some sites may have a particular section/page for mobile games, and others may be dedicated to just mobile. Either way, clear instructions will generally be provided to guide you through the exact process of downloading and installing the app.

Please Note – When downloading apps for Android devices from outside the Google Play store, you will need to change a setting on your phone to allow an app (also called “apk”) from outside of Google Play to be installed. Steps on how to do this should be included with the download instructions. Otherwise directions can easily be found by doing a quick google search.

Method 2 – Play in a Mobile Browser

Browser games differ from apps because no installation is needed. The games can be played directly through the browser itself. This can often mean they are generally simpler in terms of visuals and content/features than apps, but, depending on your needs, this might not be relevant.

Because mobile devices are essentially minicomputers, one can play browser games exactly as one would on a PC or Mac, with a touchscreen rather than keyboard and mouse of course. In fact, if you are already play online casino games on your PC/Mac, all the better! You can simply log in and play in your mobile web browser in exactly the same manner.

To play a browser casino game on a mobile device:

  • Open your mobile device’s web browser.
  • Find the casino by doing a web search or enter the casino’s web address in the browser’s address bar.
  • Once you have accessed the site, create an account with the online casino according to the provided instructions (or just login with your existing credentials).
  • Go ahead and play!
