It is possible to play casino games for real money on our tablets, and the best part is we get the portability of a smartphone, while still maintaining the screen size of a laptop. But this doesn’t mean we want to compromise where we are playing just because we have gone portable. Therefore, our team have compiled the best casinos to play at on your tablet and have even picked out a selection of games so you can get tapping.

Features of tablet casino games
Casino games that are compatible with tablets have been recreated for the HTML5 platform. This means they are going to have features that you won’t find on the desktop versions. We have included some of the features we have noticed so you can keep an eye out for them when playing.
Placing your bets on table games: When playing table games on your tablet, instead of clicking on the chip and dragging it or clicking on it then on the layout, you simply tap on the chip size you want to bet and then tap again on the screen to indicate where you want to place your bet.
Landscape mode: Many software developers have created their games to be played in landscape mode for tablets. If you have disabled this function, it might be best to enable it prior to playing so you don’t have to get out of the game, enable it, and then go back to the game.
How to view the paytable: This comes down to the software provider, but many including NetEnt feature an icon with three horizontal lines for players to tap on to view the paytable. Other software providers, such as Microgaming may just require you to swipe left or right to view this information.
Playing on your tablet is an entirely new experience from playing on your desktop or laptop, so take some time to get a feel for it so you don’t accidentally make a wager you didn’t want to make via a few harmless taps.
How to access casino sites on your tablet
There are a few ways you can access the aforementioned casinos on your tablet and these include via your tablet’s browser, by downloading an app from the casino’s page (a native or a web app), or by creating a web app yourself. We explain what we mean by a native app and a web app below.
Tablet’s Web browser: It doesn’t matter what browser your tablet uses, whether it be Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, or something else, you can access the aforementioned mobile sites. Since you always have to type in the URL to access the sites, you can easily bookmark our site so you can simply click on the link and be taken there via your browser – and score some special exclusive cash bonuses in the process.
Download an app from the casino: You can also go to one of the casinos by clicking on our links via your Web browser and here you may be able to download an app. Only Royal Vegas has a native app for all tablets, which is an app that runs on your tablet’s operating system rather than via your tablet’s browser, called Regal Vegas, while Jackpot City has one for Windows-only tablets. The rest of our web casinos will either prompt you to download their Web app – this seems like a native app, but it runs via your browser (an icon will sit on your home screen), or you will be able to create one yourself.
Add a casino to your home screen: If you aren’t playing at Royal Vegas, or you haven’t been prompted to download any of the casino’s Web apps, you can create one yourself. Once you are at the tablet casino, simply click on your browser’s settings and find the option that say’s ‘Add to Home Screen’. Click on this, name the app after the casino, and a small icon will sit on your tablet’s home screen so you can access the casino on the go. Some browser’s may not have the option, but the browsers listed above do.
