The beauty with the Android operating system is that there's an app for just about everything. Need a flashlight app? Sure. There are at least 1 million "super bright" flashlight apps in the app store. Need an app that reminds you to drink two litres of water every day? There are apps that send you push notifications every two hours reminding you to follow up with your commitments. There are dieting apps for all the diets out there; including the fad ones.
Gamblers can choose their own poison too. We saw an innovative online casino Netherlands that had a dedicated Android app where you could transact and play just like you would on the mobile version of their website. Developers like Zynga, Big Fish Gaming, DraftKings and in Logic Gaming have made apps that have subtle gambling aspects. We even have gambling apps that take a "hand-holding" approach where they'll teach you rules to a game, let you practise the game and teach you new techniques. These apps tailor their gameplay based on the user's skill such that you're always practising on your weakest skills. Today, we'll be looking at a few Android apps that are appreciated by gamblers across the globe.
1. Zynga Poker
With a million daily players and more than 100 million poker hands played on a daily basis, there's no better place to play than on the world's largest social poker network. The Zynga Poker app is available for free and lets you play Texas Hold'em poker on your smart phone. The screen-size optimized version of Zynga Poker for Android smartphones gives you all the features that you need for playing this popular card game including:
- Cards Notifications
- Chat Room
- Video Tutorials
It allows you to select from four levels of stakes:
- Mid-Stakes – $0.25 to $1.50
- Low-Stakes – $1.51 to $5
- High-Stakes – more than $5
The app uses GPS on your phone to find out where you are located and allows you to play against players in your vicinity. As a player, you have access to both an online community and a variety of additional features i
This is a decent alternative for those who don't like the scratch cards. There are different games here and not all of them involve money. You can play poker against live opponents, blackjack or roulette where you can earn tokens which are then placed in your online casino account for gambling on the site itself (the only other option is buying tokens with Bitcoin). They offer packages for every level (silver, gold, platinum) so you're very well catered for! They also have 'Titanic Cash' that is actually $25 worth of Bitcoin (quite appealing if you ask me).
This is a new player in the gambling apps industry and they're slowly making their mark in the field. There are different kinds of tournaments here where you can pick your favorite pro sports team or even the teams that you like and win tokens. Every single game has a prize pool – some are huge, some have smaller prizes. The best part about this app is that you can play with a single account on multiple devices. So, if you want to bet on the same tournament using your phone and laptop then go ahead! This app lets you do that. You cash in your points for PayPal credit and transfer that to your bank account; easy as pie! Download the app on your Android devices and see how much fun it is to gamble via this app!
4. Fun Casino HD
This is a decent app that lets you play games like roulette, blackjack, slots and more. The cool part about this one is that there are different "rooms" or casinos that you can play with and everything is free – so you can try them all out without spending a single penny! There's a chat option for each room so you can talk to other people who are in the same room as you. If you fancy joining an exclusive room where the minimum deposit required is higher than in other rooms then go right ahead. You will be asked to create an account, enter your credit card information, verify it using SMS via your phone and then start playing!
5. High Stakes Online Casino HD
This isn't one of those free casino apps that tries to make money by adding irritating ads into the game as some of them do – this one doesn't! This is a professionally designed casino with huge prize pools and generous jackpots (check out their 'Top 5' promotions). The apps has three different levels (Bronze, Silver & Gold) with a difference in maximum bet per level (you get 20 percent more chips for going up in level). The games are rendered beautifully with a high definition graphic interface. In-app purchases are available at all levels; buy as many chips as you want! It also allows you to chat with other players and even Facebook friends. All of this is available for free (ads are minimal) but if you do get tired of them then there's an ad-free version available for $3.99
6. Hoyle Card Games – Free Casino Games
This isn't one of those highly popular or feature rich apps like some of the others listed here but it does have some great table games like poker, blackjack and more. It has a good collection of card games that can be played solo or online against real opponents from across the globe! The app is free to download and play so what're you waiting for?
