The hottest trend in technology these days is the rise of the smartphone. Over the last few years, the capabilities (and screen sizes) of these devices have come on in leaps and bounds. The computers of a few years ago were less powerful than many of today’s phones.
Roulette can be enjoyed on phones and mobile tablet devices including iPads. There are some factors to consider when choosing a game, including whether it has been adapted for the smallest screen size. If you are using an Android or Windows powered device, then you can access just about every Roulette game offered at the major casinos. iPhone and iPad users also have a great choice – though will need to ensure that the technology used is compatible with their devices.
When it comes to mobile Roulette games, you will need to test a few to find one which is both enjoyable to play and works flawlessly on your device. Many casinos will claim to have mobile compatible Roulette. What you will find is that there is a huge difference between existing games which have been miniaturized, and games which have been created especially with mobile devices in mind.
Native Roulette Apps
Most casinos have ignored native apps for iOS (Apple), Android and Windows mobile devices. Instead of building each casino game over and over for each of these platforms, they have opted for the browser versions of the games instead.
MicroGaming is the only major casino which has a significant number of apps dedicated to these platforms – with more than 100 available. Not all casinos which license the MicroGaming software take these apps available. Many will only have between 20 and 30 games available in their Android and Apple phone apps. These usually include European Roulette as a minimum.

US and International Mobile Casinos
Due to the restrictive banking laws covering online casinos offering games to players based in the USA, only a limited number of software houses license games to US friendly casinos. While these include giants like Real Time Gaming, BetSoft and Rival Gaming – the mobile options are somewhat limited.
BetSoft are a great bet for slots fans, with their dedicated ‘ToGo’ range of games. This company also provides a dedicated mobile Roulette game. Where US players will really feel the pinch is with casinos offering native apps for iPhones. Hopefully, a casino will step up and make this happen soon!
Recommended Mobile Roulette Casinos
Bovada is the best choice for US players – and in fact only allow players from the USA to play at their casino. There is a dedicated mobile casino area, which works in your browser window. This includes a very nicely adapted European Roulette wheel, as well as many of the latest slot games.
Outside of the US you have a huge choice of casino software and can play with many of the biggest and best trusted brands online. For mobile players I recommend Bet365. Not only has this casino developed a platform integrating 100’s of games from different software providers which can be played in the browser of your mobile device – they have apps with many titles too.
Once you have found a game you enjoy at a trusted online casino brand, you’ll be able to enjoy online Roulette from anywhere – making waiting for the doctor or a train that little bit more entertaining.
