When we look back in the future, and think about some of the technology that has really changed the landscape, the iPad will be up there. This ever popular way of consuming media just goes from strength to strength.
Other tablets (mostly using Google’s Android system) are trying to muscle in on the action, but the iPad remains the market leader by some distance.
And if you are a fan of casino games, this is all good news, because the games developers have finally sat up and are starting to develop slots, roulette and blackjack games that fully use the capabilities of this iOS tablet (Swipe functionality, rotating screen etc.) The really good ones have optimised the experience depending on whether you are on an IPad Mini or an iPad Air. And with rumours going around that Apple will be launching an even bigger tablet nicknamed the iPad Pro, I guess they’ll have to head back to the design studio again.
Most of the major casino developers such as Microgaming, Playtech and IGT optimise their games (or have slightly different versions) for their iPad customers. And what is quite interesting, is that other newer entrants have seen the trands and have positioned themselves as mobile experts- they develop their games first and foremost for tablet and smartphone users. These sites build iPad Casinos from the ground up, if you like.
Most casinos will offer up their games to their iPad customers in the form of “in-browser” games- so you just head to the site in a Safari or Chrome browser and it should recognise you as an iPad user and serve you up the optimmum design of their casino games.
You do also get some of the bigger companies that have managed to get their casino apps accepted by the App Store (but you’ll only be able to download them from those countries that Apple deems as “legal”). The choice is your. We find the browser html5 games just fine on our iPad.
