One of the most prominent benefits of playing at an online casino is the availability. As long as you have a monitor connected to the internet, you can play whenever you want, wherever you want. Therefore, mobile casino has also seen a huge increase in popularity in recent years.
The mobile casinos use HTML5 technology to serve casino games that work just as well on mobile as on PC. Whether you use Android, iPhone or other mobile hardware. The online casinos are in fact completely dependent on making themselves available to all their users. Thus, you can expect the same good gaming experience on mobile, as on PC.
Casino on mobile app vs. Casino in browser
Many players are wondering what is the difference between mobile casino via browser and a dedicated app. What is best? What is most practical? Are there advantages and disadvantages you should know about?
The most obvious difference between mobile casino via app and browser is that you have to download the app before you can start playing. If you play via the browser, you can simply go to the casino’s website, log in and play on the go.
For those of you who want the short version: By and large, we recommend that you play via the browser on your mobile, as this offers more advantages than disadvantages, including better security and in most cases a good gaming experience.
Casino apps are removed from the App Store
By order of the Norwegian authorities, a large number of casino apps were removed from the iOS App Store in 2018. Therefore, the dilemma of whether to choose the app or the browser is easier now than before. Simply because there are not many casino apps to be found. At least for iPhone users. Therefore, gaming via a browser is by far the easiest solution.
If you use Android, the casinos will in some cases let you download casino apps directly from their websites. Note, however, that you should be careful about installing applications from unknown sources. Therefore, be extra careful when downloading apps from casinos you have not heard of, as in the worst case they may contain viruses – or violate privacy policies and the like.

Game selection at mobile casino
At more and more online casinos , the game selection is reasonably similar on mobile and PC. So you will be able to find exactly the same games in both places. This is because all new games released these days are programmed with both PC and mobile in mind.
Many developers have also chosen to launch their old games in new, mobile-friendly versions. Thus, the difference in game selection between PC and mobile is a much smaller problem these days than it was just a few years ago.
