Are Mobile Slot Machines All They Are Cracked Up To Be?

Whilst you are by now probably very well versed at playing slot machines in a bricks and mortar casino, you are always going to be tempted to play your favourite slots either online at home or when you are out and about via one of the many mobile casino sites and mobile casino apps.

However, you may be wondering if you do fancy downloading a casino app onto your trusty smart phone for the very first time, whether you are going to be getting the same type of playing experience, or whether you are going to be making any compromises when playing such slots.

Well, I set about putting a mobile casino app to the test on my mobile phone the other day, having not done so for quite a while and was expecting the way the slots look and play to have become a bit more advanced than when I last played mobile slots.

The download and installation of a mobile casino app is straight forward enough and so is the registration procedure for opening up a mobile casino account, however one trap you could fall into when playing at a mobile casino if you play at a casino at which you already hold an online account at is opening up a duplicate account.

As such I would advise you to make sure that if you already have several online casino accounts you double check to see if you can use your online log in details at the mobile casino site offered by any casino you already hold an online account at.

By not checking you run the risk of having your accounts closed as the casino site in question if you open a mobile account but are required to use your online casino account log in details to access that site, as the casino will think you are trying to claim another sign up bonus, and many casinos are very strict in regards to players only using one account at their sites.

The range of slot machines and slot games you can access at most mobile casino sites and apps are now just as wide and varied as when you play online, in fact many slot game designers now launch their latest new slot games online and on their mobile gaming platforms at the same time, so you will always find plenty of new slots to play when you do venture into the mobile slot playing environment.

However, one thing that you are going to have to make do with if your mobile phone has a small screen is a slightly different playing experience, for the buttons to send the reels spinning are of course going to be much smaller and you may find them way too fidgety to use which in turn will see you not getting as good a slot playing experience as when playing online or when playing slot machines in your local land based casino.

The payout percentages on the same slots available online and at a mobile casino site do tend to be the same, so you will not be making any compromises in regards to your winning chances, and most online progressive slot machines are networked into the same mobile slot games too, so you have an equal chance of winning a progressive jackpot.

Bonus and casino comps are available and are earned in the same way when you play on a mobile device as they are online, but the sound effects are not as enveloping when playing mobile slots, unless you use a pair of headphones!
