Building Up the Arena of Online Casinos and Mobile Games
South African online casinos are a relatively new gaming arena for this country despite the fact that the online casinos have been around now for nearly 15 years. And now that they have joined the online casino world, they are going for the new and exciting technology of mobile casino games. Mobile games in the palms of their hands!
Historically, South Africa’s land based casinos were located in the former “homelands”, areas once reserved for blacks only. However, when these homelands were incorporated into South Africa, their casinos soon turned into splendid and sumptuous resorts.
Obviously, not all wishful gamblers could make it to these expensive resorts, but, in its beginnings, online gambling in South Africa was not offered for deposits in South African rands. Today, there are many South African online casinos where rands are acceptable currency so that online gambling has taken an upturn in the country.
Introduction of Mobile Casino Games to South Africa
Once the online casinos took hold in South Africa, it was inevitable that the new mobile games technology would also find its way there.
Spin3, the leading provider of mobile gambling solutions, partnering with Microgaming, the world’s largest developer of online casino software, came out with mobile casino games just a few years ago, and these games are now available to South African owners of mobile devices.
At first, there were only a few of the more popular games available for mobile gaming. However, today it is easy to download mobile games found online. At least ten games are now available as mobile casino games, and many more will be added in the coming months.
You can now find:
- 3Card Poker
- Many Poker variations
- Poker rooms
- Scratch cards
- Many slots games including progressive jackpots
Furthermore, these mobile casino games can be funded with several online banking options instead of the debit or credit cards which used to be the only kind of financing available in South Africa.
With all these progressive innovations offered today in the world of online and mobile gambling, it is not surprising to find a tremendous rise in the number of players in South Africa. It is very simple and easy, despite the small size and space, to download mobile games onto a mobile device, set up a banking option with the mobile casino, and immediately begin to enjoy playing mobile casino games. It is no longer necessary to go to an expensive South African casino resort for entertainment.
