Apple’s decision to allow the listing of online gambling applications in its App Store in 2010 has opened some new horizons for iPhone and iPad users. They gained access to things unavailable for them before, or accessible only through some lesser mobile browser versions instead of native apps – sports bets, poker and casino games.
Still, playing most of these games is only possible for iPhone users if they invest real money in them – they need to register an account, download and install the software, make a deposit and play for real money (For more information go to casinolavida.com).
There are several free casino games available through the App Store, I know, but these will never have the atmosphere and the quality of those games built to be played for real money – so slots fans can only play the best games if they pay up, right?
iPhone users can enjoy playing the high quality games offered by developers for iPhone and iPad without even having to pay a dime. The simplest way to do this is to visit the game developer’s website.
Developers like to show off their work, with the intention to allow players and possible future customers to try their games before making their choice. Most of them limit their demo game range to titles running on desktop devices, but a selected few – like my personal favorite, the Swedish company called Net Entertainment – has an excellent demo site for mobile devices as well.
Net Entertainment is considered one of the top developers of the iGaming industry. It does not have such a large game list than Microgaming, the oldest company in business with a game list of over 500 titles – but all its games are built with the highest quality and an incredible attention to detail. Somebody once called NetEnt the Apple of iGaming – referring to their high quality products and services. And they were right.
Net Entertainment is one of the few developers that offers players access to its complete range of games – both on desktop and mobile devices – free of charge, in demo mode. All they have to do is navigate to their website – netent.com – and choose a game to play.
Unlike many other developers, NetEnt does not stick to the old ways using Flash, but builds its games to run on as many platforms as possible, using HTML5. Thus, their games run on any device with a support for the latest standards, including the iDevices released by Apple. Players in search for a great quality slot machine – their Aliens and Creature from the Black Lagoon are among the best such games I have ever played – can simply go to their website through a mobile browser, load the game and play, with no strings attached, and no real money involved. Just for the fun of it.
