Mobile Casino Apps
When mobile casinos were first launched they were in the form of downloadable apps that you installed on your mobile device. But lately there has been a move away from this towards browser-based mobile casino games, where you connect using the browser on your device and play instantly.
In the app model there were different apps for each of the mobile platforms - Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Blackberry, as well as the older model phones that still used WAP technology. Now the advent of HTML5 has made it possible to provide the same rich experience with underlying sophistication in a browser that was previously only possible by writing an app.
We predict that browser-based mobile casinos will soon take over completely. The bottom line is that pretty soon there will be little if any difference between a mobile and online casinos for Australians.
Will a mobile casino work on my phone?
This depends on what type of mobile casino you want to use. If it is a mobile casino app that you need to download and install, then it might not work on your phone, especially if you have a very old model.
However, if it is a browser-based HTML5 mobile casino, then it may very well work on your older phone, as long as your phone has a web browser that is up to date. You simply need to connect to the mobile casino using your browser and it should open up right there, allowing you to play with ease.
If you have a relatively modern phone, you shouldn't have any problem with any type of AU real money casino. Just make sure that you choose the correct version of the mobile casino that matches your mobile phone platform (Android, iOS etc.).
How do I access the mobile casino and install the mobile casino games?
We've made it easy for you - you can do it from our website, right here. We've provided links to mobile casinos as well as QR codes that will connect you instantly. These will take you to the mobile casino home page and you can get going from there. You don't have to worry about the different mobile casino versions - the casino software will detect your type of phone and give you the correct version of the mobile casino games.
From there it's all plain sailing. You simply click on the games you want to play from the list provided and they will open on your mobile's screen. The game controls are easy to use and intuitive.
Mobile Casino Software
Here is a short overview of the mobile features offered by the various casino software platforms in terms of the number of mobile games, progressives offered and signature games:

Mobile Casino Q&A
Can I do banking from my mobile device?
Yes you can. The mobile casino software contains all the banking mechanisms and methods for you to make deposits and withdrawals right there using your mobile device.
Is it secure?
It's every bit as secure as transacting with the casino on your desktop or laptop. The same SSL technology and encryption protects your transactions.
However, there is one word of warning: it's not advisable to use a public Wi-Fi connection network to do this, as these networks are not necessarily as secure as you would like. Make sure that you only do your casino banking from the secure Wi-Fi connection you have at home.
Can I play with a bonus on my mobile phone?
Yes you can - everything is the same as when you play on your desktop or laptop. You log into the same account using the same login details and all your bonuses are right there for you. It doesn't matter what you use to play.
What happens if I lose coverage and my game is interrupted?
The mobile casino games software has built in protection for this. The game either stops at the point where you made your last bet and it is refunded to you, or it resolves the bet if there is no more betting to be done and gives you the outcome when you connect again.
Does it matter what Network I am on?
It doesn't matter what network you are on, but you'll probably want the best connection, via 3G or 4G. Mobile casinos work on all the Australian mobile networks, including: Virgin Mobile, Vodafone, Optus, Telstra, iPrimus, Dodo and Amaysim.
