Together with the updated legislation that made the iGaming niche legal and transparent in Ontario, some mobile casino gaming apps also became legit! Not all because registering and licensing a mobile app is a separate move and far from all operators of private online casino sites did that. But some did, and at last Ontario players got a chance to combine safety and convenience. As a result, while mobile use for gaming activities was already on the rise, it started growing even more. In this post, we will look at this trend in more detail.
All gaming apps are popular because they are more convenient than using laptops or desktops – does anyone play on desktop these days? Unless all this serious video gaming stuff? So, convenience is the king because people can play when commuting, waiting in a line, taking a bath, and so on.
Another perk is accessibility of casino gambling that became available to wider audiences as soon as people started reaching out to casinos in apps. Younger people play on the go because they don’t use laptops for this, but older people also find it easier to play in a user-friendly and intuitively comprehensive app rather than opening a big and complicated website.
Also, since most mobile apps are compatible with the most popular OS, literally every gambler can find an app to their taste. And due to the fact that operators have to meet the OS requirements, they usually provide their apps with user-friendly interface and navigation. This makes it easy for both seasoned players and newcomers to navigate through the app and enjoy their favorite casino games without trying to guess what is needed from them.
Some mobile apps for online casino gambling go as far as offering exclusive features and customization, like left-hand mode, day and night mode, etc. Moreover, some casinos offer special bonuses to their customers that can only be taken in a mobile app.
The list of legit online casinos available to gamblers in Ontario constantly grows as new operators register their platforms with AGCO. However, this is not the case with mobile apps due to a bunch of reasons, from operators being unsure they need to provide an app in addition to mobile-compatible websites, to operators being reluctant to pay extra for the license.
There is a healthy dozen of Ontario online casino apps already there, but some of the most well-known and tested by time include
Platforms behind these casinos have been in operation for years, as well as mobile apps available in other regions. Today, they are legit in Ontario, too!
Some players feel unsure they can trust mobile apps when it comes to real-money bets and withdrawals. When choosing a mobile app for playing casino games, they should first choose the online casino they can trust.
There are very few online casinos that only exist in the form of a mobile app; in most cases, apps are developed by operators that have had their online platforms in the industry for years and are sure their apps will be in demand. Therefore, it makes sense to choose a high-quality online casino site with spotless reputation, and then see if it offers an app.
It is also crucial to download the app either on the casino site directly, or from Appstore or Google Play, and definitely not from any third-party websites even if they claim they have legit software.
When choosing among mobile apps offered by several reliable and reputable casino platforms, players are recommended to look at the following things:
- license from AGCO for the app
- what data does the app collect about players and where this data goes
- how often does the operator update the app
- what is the app’s rating in online store
- what are other users’ comments
- how many games are available via the app
- what payment methods does the app allow
- is there a live chat directly in the app to contact Customer Support
- what languages does the app support
- does the player personally find the app convenient to use
Despite all the convenience of gambling on one’s smartphone, mobile apps and especially casino apps have their disadvantages, like limited choice of games, slow Customer Support, bugs that are not fixed, etc. This is why it is important to only use applications by reliable developers.
