Android and casino action – quo vadis?

To be perfectly honest, I have not been a big fan of Android in the beginning. I had to agree with Steve Jobs who said that it’s a stolen product and it’s very poor. But I have to admit that Android was developing great during the last two or three years and became the market leader by a couple of miles. There’s no way that iOS, Windows Phone or anybody else will take Android over again. I mean, look at that:

All I can say is lol. Windows Phone is investing heavily in their own devices, in advertising and so on and still won’t have the slightest chance against Android. Ok, I don’t like Microsoft very much but this just shows you why I don’t like them. Investing a lot of money in new businesses (look at their “iPod competitor” or their search engines…) and think they can succeed but they will always fail. They should focus on their Windows and Office as these are the only products that were real successes.

Anyways, when we talk about Android there’s no doubt that, when it comes to Apps, Android is also the market leader. It’s highly unlikely that there are apps you will be missing on Android (if you are not using some Android device from 2010). Same is true for mobile casino games which is a great hobby of mine. Here you can read why I love them so much! I always play on the go and I’m mostly switching between my iPhone and Android tablet. This is perfect for casino games and I can play anywhere I want. Ok, the casino needs to offer an Android app but as I said it’s highly unlikely not to do so. I could tell you much more about the details but I leave this to sites that really focus on Android casino games. What I am asking and what is more interesting to me is what Android is going to do with this growing market. Google often announced that it intends to head into the gaming niche. To me, it’s not a niche as revenues are quite high. Same is true for Facebook. What I think Google will do some time is establishing their own casino brand like Google Games or anything like that. Letting users easily install a casino app where they can play for real money. That would be an awesome move making 99% of all existing online casinos redundant!

Seriously, how awesome are mobile casino games

I have to admit: I’m a real geek when it comes to gaming stuff. I used to play a lot of Counter Strike back in the days until I reached a point where I thought it was enough. I started to do more sports, read books and finally start to study. Anyways, there are plenty of new games like Warcraft, Battlefield, Call of Duty and so on but I don’t really care. What I do care about is mobile casino games! I had no idea that this is working so smoothly. I heard about it before but never got interested. One day I was really bored, sitting on a bench waiting for the next train arriving in 2 hours. At least my Internet connection was pretty good and my iPhone fully loaded. So I was browsing through the web and came across that 888 casino. It seems to be one of the largest casinos and I thought it was pretty reliable. So I was wondering how their app looks like and it was really awesome. Not the app alone but the whole gaming experience.

I was so busy the next two hours playing all kinds of games that I almost forgot about the train I was waiting for. I saw it arriving accidentely when I was looking to the sky thanking God for the small win on one slot machine. It was pretty funny. Only 25 EUR but I was only playing penny slots with 0.05 each. So that was a pretty good win.

When I was at home I was thinking: is it really that awesome and do I have to play more often from now on? I was browsing the web and searching for sites about mobile gambling only like this one. I found out that there are many differences between all the devices. Actually I don’t care as I found a great casino with my iPhone. But there are also a lot of differences for certain games. Roulette is not the same on all casinos.

However, I was surprised about the new technologies in this area and never expected mobile casinos to be that good. I was playing with my iPhone 5s so I’m a bit spoiled. The gaming experience won’t be that good with an old iPhone or other smartphones though. Just in case…

How good or bad is the new iOS7

As I write this, I really do believe that I should come clean. I detest Apple. Now, for all of you Apple fans out there, it should be made clear that I don’t dislike their products, or for that matter any of their concepts.

However, I do find their overnight monopolisation and iron strength grip on the market not only unfair to other, smaller companies abhorrent, but I also find that after the unfortunate death of Steve Jobs, the company has never quite shaken off his views of how Apple should run, and hasn’t really adopted any new views.

Now, that said, Apple does get it right in terms of its products, thanks in no small part to the exclusivity of their hardware. Now although you’ll find that their iOS and even OSX is amongst the most stable on the market, with virtually no holes in regards to its security, it does come with one major drawback.

When you upgrade your operating system, you’ll probably have noticed that every device is updated at the same time. So your device, your friends devices, next door but ones device and so on. This is made possible, unlike with a Windows phone or an Android, because the strict parameters in which the devices are made, and the software is designed to be compatible across the board.
For example, were you to take yours and your friends identical phones apart (for this example I’ll use the iPhone 5s), everything would be seemingly identical. From the retina display to the hard drive (I’m pretty sure, but don’t quote me on it, is Seagate).
Now the phones may appear identical, and the hardware may seem identical, but there is no such thing as a truly identical ‘carbon copy’ due to the simple fact they are made by humans, and humans aren’t machines, so there will always be some form of variance.

Now that I’ve bored you with the whole human nature element of the iPhone/iPad hard drive, I’ll get to the point, and that is no 2 pieces of hardware are identical, and as such, iOS 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 will all react differently on different devices.

This is where the drawback mentioned above comes in. You see, although Apple does rigorously test all of its software, in comparison to the number of iPhones and iPads that are actually out there, the number of devices it physically tests on is merely a drop in the ocean. This means that when you actually download the new OS within minutes of it being launched, you are in theory the BETA tester.
For the most part, you’ll be lucky and the upgrade runs as it should, however, others won’t be, and they will need to either roll back to an older version of iOS, of they’ll have to perceiver until an update is launched. Cast your minds back to the Apple Maps fiasco, some users had issues, others didn’t. This is because although the hardware is the same, it isn’t identical.
So if you are considering updating iOS within minutes of its launch, be aware that sometimes, latest and greatest isn’t always safest.
Now, down to the features, there are a few added extras in the new iOS 7, and although not essential, they are pretty damn cool! The design has been overhauled in a way which is familiar to the diehard fans, yet still new, refreshing and fresh.

There is also a new multitasking feature (it’s only a few years behind Android!), which allocates RAM automatically, to make your device even more powerful by allowing you to run multiple apps simultaneously without clogging the data processes up. They added a few new animations as well, however, some users have been stating that they begin to feel a little queasy, and although the claims have been confirmed by motion sicken experts, and there is currently little you can do.
However, if you do upgrade and discover that you are feeling ill after using your device, you can alter the animations by entering Settings>Accessibility>Reduce Motion.
Siri has also been reincarnated, and is now more responsive than ever. It answers back in a whole new dynamic way, and if you really wanted to, you can train it to hurl insults! A must have party trick when you’re in a mischievous mood!

On the whole, I do believe the iOS 7 is a decent upgrade, and one well worth having, however, if you have ever had issues with previous upgrades, whether that’s to the OS itself, or downloading a whole new OS, may I recommend that you give it some time, as all new software does come with teething problems, and if your device happens to be one of those teeth, you may end up slightly disappointed.

Guide to iPhone and Android Casino Bonuses

You may be looking for extra reasons to play at any iPhone or Android casino site, and one way in which the operators and owners of such sites will reward you for becoming a new customer of their respective site is by giving you access to a welcome bonus when you first sign up as a new real money customer.
Not only are you going to be offered a huge array of different iPhone or Android casino bonuses as a new customer, as many such sites also offer continuous and ongoing bonuses to all of their loyal and regular customers.

With this in mind we have chosen to put together our definitive and informative guide to iPhone or Android casino bonuses, and below you will find each of the many different types of bonus offers that will become available to you, when you make the wise decision of using your iPhone or Android device to play at any of our featured sites.

No Deposit iPhone and Android Casino Bonuses

You will find a nice surprise when you first log into some iPhone and Android casinos for the very first time, for many such sites will have a free bonus sat waiting for you. However, these casinos would soon go bankrupt if they did not impose some form of rules regarding the use of such bonuses and as such you always have to be aware of them before starting to play with any no deposit bonus.
What you are going to find is that a no deposit bonus will come with a play through requirement attached to them. This simply means that before you can get access to the funds in your account you need to play the bonus through x number of times.

If you have been given, for example a 5.00 no deposit required bonus, and the terms and conditions state that you need to play through the bonus 20 times, then you need to play a total of 100.00 worth of credits on the permitted games before you can withdraw your winnings and/or account balance.
So when you are playing off a no deposit bonus you will be hoping to get lots of winning spins on the slot games or roulette games or you will be hoping to have lots of winning hands dealt out to you on the card games or video poker games to enable you to meet those play through requirements!
Also some iPhone and Android casinos have started to impose a maximum cash out rule in regards to any no deposit bonus awarded, so always have a read through the rules of any no deposit bonus and make a note on any maximum cash out rules and once the play through requirement has been met and your account
balance is cashable then make a withdrawal!

For it will be pointless you continuing to play in the hope of building up a larger bankroll and casino account balance if you are subject to such a maximum cash out rule! You are only ever permitted to claim one no deposit new player bonus at any one single iPhone and Android casino you join up to.
One final point to make in regards to no deposit bonuses, never try and cheat the system by opening up lots of new accounts at the iPhone and Android casino, for they have system and checks in place which will enable them to spot you are trying to bilk the free bonuses and they will declare null and void any withdrawal you try to make having opened up more than one account!

Deposit iPhone and Android Casino Bonuses

The most generous of iPhone and Android casino bonuses are reserved for those players who are prepared to put their own money at risk, for unlike the above free bonuses when you make use of a deposit bonus you will need to make a qualifying deposit to secure the additional bonus that has been offered to you.
There are some excellent deposit bonuses currently on offer to new players, and these really will offer you true value, for you will find many iPhone and Android casinos offering a deposit bonus that will see you picking up a 100% bonus or more when you make an initial deposit into your selected casino account.
The only thing to keep in mind when using such a bonus is that the casino, in exchange for giving you a deposit bonus, will want a fair chance of winning your money off you, and as such they will attached to such bonuses a set of rules and terms and conditions which you have to adhere too when using any deposit bonus.

Always read through those rules for they may require you to play through your deposit and/or the bonus awarded a certain number of times before you can withdraw your winnings. Shopping around from iPhone and Android casino to iPhone and Android casino will allow you to see which are the most generous of deposit bonuses and those offering you the best chances of ending your session with a withdrawal amount of cash!

Loyalty Bonuses

iPhone and Android casinos will also have what is known as a loyalty type scheme or as they are more commonly known a Comp Club. When you opt to play as sites offering such clubs and schemes then each and every real money game you play and wager on, win or lose, earns you a set of points.
These points can then be exchanged for free bonus credits as and when you have accumulated enough of them to redeem them.

The value of the comp and loyalty points you amass is going to vary from site to site, so anyone wanting the maximum playing value and access to additional casino chips and credits should shop around to see what is on offer by any casino loyalty scheme and comp club.
One other thing to keep in mind with such bonuses awarded from a loyalty and comp club is that often they are awarded and credited to your account as real cash so you can immediately withdraw those funds, however some iPhone and Android casinos will require you to complete a play through requirement before you can withdraw such funds and any additional winnings made with those comped bonus credits!
