We all love using our phone for as many aspects of our lives as possible, and for a few years now it’s been possible to gamble via the mobile as well as play all those other games you can download apps for.
Android users in the UK who like to gamble probably have the most developed and least-taxed market for gambling anywhere in the world. So there’s a great amount of choice for anyone who wants to gamble using their phone in the UK. All the major casino and betting sites like Paddy Power, 32Red and bgo now offer a range of services that are suitable for use on android phones.
As the UK gambling market is so established and mature, that means there’s a lot of competition in signing up new users, so casino gamers and sports bettors can benefit from the fact that there are some great incentives on offer when you join a casino or bookmaker’s site. For example, if you join bgo.com you’ll see that new members not only get a 200% welcome bonus, but also 180 free spins as well. This is great news for new players, and to keep existing players loyal, the main sites all offer ongoing promos such as a re-deposit bonus and other one-off special promos.
However, there’s only so much gambling that the UK residents can spend time doing, so though there’s still growth in the UK gambling market, it’s slowing down a little. This means that there is now a scramble to bag some of the overseas markets that are now only just opening up for online and mobile gambling. As countries open up through de-regulation, all the main gaming and gambling site providers are looking to secure their share of these new markets.
So while we know that an Android user can benefit from all this competition, is it safe to sign up to gambling sites using your mobile device? The best advice when deciding where to play is to stick with the big name brands. The main sites use the same security standard as banks and other financial institutions in order to keep customers’ private and financial information secure. Casino and sports betting apps have a 128-bit Secure Socket Layer which encrypts data travelling from your Android phone or tablet to the provider’s server. So, even though you may have heard about hackers being able to intercept information in public Wifi areas, you’ll know that this is very unlikely to happen as your information is secure. If in doubt about the security systems in place at the gaming operator you’re thinking about joining, read some reviews of the apps by other users and check out information on casino comparison websites.
If you’re having trouble finding gambling apps at Google Play, it’s because they’re not allowed in there. So, to find the app you want, go to the provider’s website and download the app direct from there.
There’s a lot of choice for people who want to gamble using Android devices in the UK, and the fact that it’s secure to do so means that many people are taking advantage of the great offers around and enjoying gambling games while on the move.
