The Apple iPad has been a phenomenon since it launched back in 2010 (was it only 2010?) From the first generation machines that took the world by storm (remember those people who said that they would never take off?), to the newer iPad Mini and iPad Air tablets. In the section we list out all of the best iPAd casinos that we have come across.
Whereas Android caught up with Apple sometime ago in the smartphone department (and some would say overtook), when we think about tablets, Android have been slower to catch up. Android now has a greater market share of the tablet market (over 60%), but bear in mind that this number is made up of multiple manufacturers- Samsung, Kindle etc. Most people would still argue that the iPAd remains the tablet that everyone aspires to.
Online casinos have not failed to notice this trend (although some have been pretty slow to react). The better ones have made full use of all the technical wizardry that is availble on these machines, and have designed mobile casinos that are great to play and are in many case superior to online casinos that you’d play on a pc or tablet.
We’d single out the Paddy Power mobile casino in particular who are “ahead of the curve” for iPad Casinos. It’s not easy to configure your games for all of the varieties of tablets these days- what works on a full size iPad with retina display (9.5 inches) won’t necessarily work on an iPad Mini (7.75 inches in height). Paddy Power has done a great job in configuring the games across the whole range.
So what do have in store for the future? Well, the rumour mill is going big on an iPad Pro release- with a A8X processor, 2K and 4K screen options, with an early 2015 launch.
The iPad Pro is rumoured to be a larger version of the iPad Air with a 12.9-inch screen, ( and could even be a laptop/tablet hybrid to compete with the Microsoft Surface tablet). This will be a HUGE screen, and something that the games developers will quickly have to get their heads around, if indeed it does launch.
Well, as we said- it’s all rumours. One thing we do know, is that the Apple Watch is coming out soon. How long before we get an Apple Watch Casino?
Can you play slots on a watch? I bet they’ll try and get you to play scratch cards, and I can see this being popular with people trying to measure for imperfections in roulette wheels to try and get an egde in LAs Vegas or Monaco.
