Live casinos are a very popular form of online betting, as they help to reintroduce a social aspect to the pastime. Most live casinos are accessible by the full range of Android devices, no matter what specific device or OS version they are operating on. This is because when it comes to popular operating systems, Android is the clear market favourite. They make up just under 75% of total global sales. Their popularity ensures websites cater to them, and live casinos are no different.
The Android operating system was founded in 2003, long before Apple created the competing iOS. Android was actually designed to improve the OS of digital cameras, to help them better connect to computers, to download photos more easily. This was long before smart devices even existed, although they very quickly saw how the system could be repurposed for mobile phones. Android was acquired by Google, who then offered the system to mobile phone developers for free. Android continues to launch new and improved versions of their OS, and currently offer devices Android 9.0 (also known as pie).
Utilizing your Android device to play on live casinos is a simple process, no matter what kind of device you have. All you need to do is browse the internet for casino sites that offer live casino games. Creating a profile and logging in usually only takes a couple of minutes. You can choose to play directly on the site, or you can download the app and play on that. Not all live casinos offer a corresponding app, especially considering that real money casinos cannot advertise in the Google Play Store. If an app does exist, it will be found on the site itself.
Your Android device should provide total freedom to access all elements of the live casino, including playing games with other real players, depositing and withdrawing funds, as well as all other elements of the casino.
Using an Android device does not offer you any specific protection or security when it comes to accessing live casinos. Your banking and other personal information are not necessarily secure, and there are always potential threats of hacking. It is important to make sure that the live casino you are using encrypts data with SSL security protocol. This helps to prevent information from getting stolen. If your chosen payment method is via banking, then your bank will also have SSL encryption, ensuring your information is even safer.
- Almost all online live casinos are available on Android devices
- If you cannot find a live casino app (or do not want to download one), you can still play on most websites, without downloading anything
- It can be difficult to find Android casinos to download, that pay out using real money. The Google Play Store has banned all advertising of these forms of apps
- The fact that apps are not available on the Google Play Store increases the risk that Android users are going to click on an unsafe link for an app through an illegitimate site pretending to be a live casino
