Do you love mobile slot games?
Check out how it all started!
There’s no doubt in anybody’s mind that online casinos are the most successful online gambling games that have made the transition to our mobile phones. The most popular games in online casinos can now be accessed straight from your phone, no matter where you are and no matter when you want them. Today we’re going to check out some of the most famous online casino games that are available on your mobile phone: mobile slots.
The history of the first mobile slots apps and the first mobile phones that could be dubbed “smartphones” are intertwined. The very first mobile slots apps were coded for the popular Nokia N series (with phones like the Nokia 6600 quickly taking over “ordinary” phones that could only be used for calls and text messages), and it took just a couple of days to build. The slots games were basically the same with the ones found in online casinos, just shrunk in size to fit the phone’s display. Their popularity wasn’t at all what it is today, but many people enjoyed playing the games on their phones.
Slowly, but surely, online slot machines began getting ported to more types of mobile phones. They were still “stand alone” games which you could install on your phone – which meant two things. First of all, if you wanted to check out a different game, you had to install another app. And second, due to the small memory that the phones had, you couldn’t install too many apps on your phone and had to switch between the ones you were currently playing.
As technology advanced and more powerful phones became more and more wide spread, things naturally started to change. The first “mobile casino” applications started to appear and you could now play different types of online casino games on your mobile phone with ease – you installed the mobile casino app and switched between the games as you pleased.
But the truly groundbreaking stuff happened back when online casino apps started to be available for real money play. This made the transition between just a fun couple of games that you played in your free time to a couple of fun, exciting games which you could play in your free time… and which could get you a ton of money for no real work.
And once the first touchscreen phones appeared, like the iPhone and the Android series of phones, these types of apps basically started to appear in larger and larger numbers, with developers letting their imaginations go wild.
Nowadays, you can start playing mobile slot games straight from your phone in a couple of minutes – and you can play for real money, just like you would on your computer. Mobile gambling accounts for an increasing percentage of online gambling activities, and it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down.
