Android and iPhone Slot Games 101
Even though Android and iPhones are two different mobile platforms, there isn’t much difference in terms of slot apps. Both platforms allow slot apps in their respective app stores and both benefit from that. At the same time, players benefit from that because they get to play most of their favorite titles for free. Another common nominator for both mobile platforms are the development studios. Almost all of the big names develop slot apps for both platforms. The biggest slot app developers are Microgaming, Novomatic, Aristocrat, WMS, Evolution Gaming, Playtech, IGT, Push Gaming, NetEnt, and others.
Aside from that, the player can install the wanted slot app only if he runs the right version and not any earlier version. There is one problem for newer OS versions. Plus, the user needs to have enough space on the smartphone. Some massive slot apps can take hundreds of megabytes.
The hardware power is the last, but not the least important here. Nowadays, any mobile without 2GB RAM is considered a low-performance smartphone. Anything less than that, or without a decent CPU, the chances are that the slot app will be either running slow or it will crash from time to time.
Mobile slot games – safety and security
Historically looking mobile slots games are 100% safe and secure. There aren’t any official data or records of slot games being hacked or user’s data being exposed to the public. Online casinos continuously invest in top of the notch encryption and protecting their user’s data. The result is the games are protected and malware free.
The biggest problem is when people download slot games from third-party websites that haven’t been vetted for malware and viruses. In those cases, users can be exposed to all sorts of trouble. Because of that, it is always recommended to download slots either from the official store apps (Play Store or iTunes) or its creator’s website.
Mobile slots vs. PC-based slots
Mobile slots hold many advantages over pc based slots. Here are the most notable ones:
- Mobile slots can be played both on tablets and smartphones.
- Mobile slots can be easily accessed and played from any possible location such as park bench, during a bus ride, from the comfort of your living room, and so on.
- There are special bonuses and promotions only for mobile slot players.
- Playing on a mobile or tablet is way more private than playing on a laptop or a computer screen.
Web browser based online casinos may lose users on account of mobile apps, but probably they won’t go away any time soon. That’s mainly because almost all online casinos made their websites to be responsive. That way they are much easier to be accessed, from any tablet or smartphone.
The only other advantage over mobile gaming is that you get to experience the slot to its fullest. Meaning a large computer screen and a good pair speakers/ headset can bring out the best of the audio/visual effects in the slot. Nowadays, some slots feature incredible designs that can be only experienced on a large screen.
