Online casinos became an ideal escape from pandemic realities in the last year and a half in the US states where they are legal, such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Delaware, West Virginia, and New Jersey. They have been such a roaring success that many players say they will not return to brick-and-mortar facilities any time soon.
While players can gamble at online casinos on any computer or smart device, many prefer playing on a tablet, such as an iPad. Here is what you need to know if you intend to join them:
The iPad phenomenon
An iPad is the most popular tablet worldwide. While competitors produce comparable products, few users would ‘convert’ from an iPad to another tablet. With this in mind, many internet casino operators have designed their websites and apps to work seamlessly with an iPad’s operating system.
Indeed, most app designers work on two formats: one for iOS and another for Android. This allows them to optimize each operating system’s features and create an authentic user experience (UX) for players.
iPad vs. computer
Many gamblers who play on online casino websites believe in having a good laptop to maximize their enjoyment. Some sites are not optimized for tablets and cellphones, and users prefer interacting with them on a computer.
However, the iPad was designed with apps in mind, and there is no better way to use online casino apps than on one of these tablets. Even the best iPhones cannot surpass the iPad’s performance as its larger screen size makes playing more convenient. It also provides users with an enhanced experience to fully appreciate the cutting-edge graphics app developers use.
Finding great apps
Due to Apple’s real money gambling policy, a player’s choice of online casino apps will be limited depending on their geographical location. While many apps might be available, some will not operate in the US or states that have not legalized online gambling.
The app reviews are worth reading when deciding which online casino app to use. A string of comments from dissatisfied users should set off warning bells. Additionally, users should check that the online casino they intend to use is registered and licensed by relevant state gaming control boards to ensure legal compliance. While Apple does its best to ensure that apps do not facilitate illegal activities, gamblers should also take responsibility by researching an online casino before committing to it.
