That means real money slots, jackpot slots, many of your favourite table games and video poker are all available via mobile casino games app. Most of the time, the selection is just a little smaller than you might find elsewhere, just to save space.

Bottom line on Ontario mobile gaming apps

Mobile gaming is the fastest-growing segment in the casino industry. More players are gambling with mobile casino apps every day. Still, the OLG app and the privately run mobile casino apps headed to Ontario can’t promise the same online casino experience they do to laptop and desktop computer users right now. There simply aren’t as many games. However, the tech is improving all the time.

More casino games are optimized for mobile use every day, and the software is trimmed down all the time. Mobile gambling is clearly the future of online gambling, if not the casino business altogether. It’s really just a question of *when* mobile gaming will take over, not if.
