In the early days of the internet, live gambling and surfing the web weren’t easy bedfellows; protracted load times and jerky graphics were a real turn-off, especially with live casino-style games like roulette, and the fear of ‘cyber-crime’ was ever present with primitive security software making the threat of hackers something of an unknown quantity. Advances in broadband connectivity and mobile browsing and an increased awareness of online security mean the iPhone and now even iPad are credible platforms for such games. The addition of social media to the equation now also allows users that bit of human interaction that might previously have been denied the budding bedroom bettor. Below are three recently launched apps that bring online gambling squarely into the social age.
1. TV Roulette – Smart Live Casino – Free
Smart Live Casino’s recently launched ‘Live Roulette’ app is the first to be compatible with Facebook. Smart Live Casino operates on satellite television and this app allows players to access the channel through Facebook, meaning players can chat to the presenters and other players in real-time, really making full use of the platform. Whilst this isn’t the first live roulette app, it is the first to appear on Facebook and really makes it a feature; you can earn chips by inviting friends, through f-commerce or simply by winning and players can post high scores on their walls and compare with other app users and friends. It’s a free download and allows users the choice to play for free or with real money, so you won’t have to risk your life savings every time you log on to update your status.
2. SuperCasino – Free
3. Casino 24/7 is the live roulette tv show showing from just after midnight each night and 24 hours a day online, you can play along on iPhone or iPad while watching thanks to their newly released app. The apps are compatible with the televised presenter-led roulette show, which is great for those who like to enjoy some friendly (or not so friendly) chat while they play. For those who prefer to eschew the chitchat in favour of the spin of the wheel, Roulette Express offers a fast-paced autowheel roulette experience. Another benefit is that existing account holders aren’t required to open a separate account when playing the mobile version, so any funds in your existing account are available (the app doesn’t allow you to transfer money) it’s also one less set of log-in details to remember.
