The future is packed in a nifty gadget known as the mobile device. Whether it’s a tablet that fits conveniently in your bag or the mobile phone that snugs with the palm of your hand, these little hi-tech things allow you to connect to the world within seconds and, in mobile casinos, play with their games.

Indeed, the predictions are rapidly coming true. It will be very soon that more people will be using these mobile devices than the conventional and bulky PCs and laptops. As early as now, more casinos are adding mobile games into their lineup.

One of these is Cloudbet. Cloudbet is quite different from the casinos in cyberspace since it runs through Bitcoin. Players don’t need to deposit real money but rather have to acquire Bitcoins, a virtual currency, in order to play the games. These bitcoins can already be purchased or mined.

Cloudbet’s mobile casino features over 20 different games, including roulette, slot, and blackjack. Aside from the ability to play, the players will also have the option to withdraw cash without having to log in to their accounts outside their phone, thereby making mobile gaming more smooth flowing. The mobile app is set to run in Windows Mobile, iOS, and Android.

Bingo.com is another gaming brand that will soon conquer mobile. Its mobile app version is in, fact, a long time coming. Just last year, the company’s revenue fell for more than 10 percent when compared year on year, and one of the reasons mentioned is the mobile launch. For some reason, the management decided to decrease marketing costs and perhaps put more effort into the mobile app. Certainly, it hopes that, finally with the mobile app now complete and ready to be downloaded, they can already leverage it by tapping onto new players who are comfortable in mobile casinos and find them more convenient. The brand can also add more value into their businesses.

Meanwhile, Slotland Casino is expanding and adding a new dimension into their game play by having their own mobile app. In fact, this decision is monumental for a number of reasons. Slotland is one of the pioneering online casino brands since it opened sometime in 1998. It’s also one of the very few casinos that are almost independent from software developers such as Real-time Gaming or Microgaming. Slotland creates its own games. Many of the games, therefore, are not found in other online casinos.

The designated Slotland mobile games are expected to run in Apple’s iOS, Android, and even Blackberry. Those who use Nintendo Wii may also download the app.

As more casinos offer mobile gaming, we’ve also seen a dramatic increase of mobile players. Today, they can take the game with them anywhere they go, allowing them to pursue other things that matter to them such as their work or their love of traveling. Although 20 games in a mobile casino may be small—PC games can have as many as 100—that number is increasing too.
