Mobile devices are getting more compatible with online casino software, and some of the best devices for playing online slots are Windows phones. Usually, no extra knowledge and skills are needed to adjust the settings as they almost always work with the default settings. Online casinos websites are able to recognize any mobile device that is used to log in and they normally adjust the screen display automatically to fit the mobile screen.
However, what makes the Windows phone more special than other mobile devices is that mobile slot games are by default designed for the Windows platform. This is because Windows is the most commonly used operating system as compared to Linux and Mac. Windows phone users can also take advantage of keyboard input as well as using a stylus and touch, which offers great versatility when playing mobile slots.
Windows mobile games are designed interactively, so they feature virtualized objects that are usually responsive to a stylus, touch or soft buttons. Some games don't even require the use of buttons to be played. As any game is being downloaded, part of the package comprises instructions on how to play it. These are pretty straightforward and a player with no prior experience in the game cannot have a hard time catching on. Some casinos also provide a help desk for more assistance.
Flash games are also a part of the Windows mobile casino gaming suite. These games basically convert a player's browser into a casino game app. Flash games do not require a download, and can be played directly in the browser.
Nearly all online casino games have a free version, which means there are free slot apps for Windows phones. This is so because a majority of gamers prefer to start by practising their gambling skills on the free games before moving on to risk their money in real games. Sometimes this becomes the only option they have, especially if they are currently in jurisdictions that prohibit real money gambling or even when a casino is yet to approve their selected payment methods. Free slots apps can be found on all casinos that have slot machines and also on social networking portals.
It is very easy to get started on the real money games on a Windows phone. The first step is making a real money bet. A player may find that the first few bets will be against a start-up bonus that the casino offers. This will usually match their deposit and it serves as an instant boost to their bankroll. The casinos offering these games accept a number of international money transfer methods for deposits and withdrawals, such as Visa, MasterCard, Moneybookers, NETeller, and PayPal.
The real money Windows mobile games have daily limits that are normally dependent on the policy of the casino, the player's credit card limits, and the gambling rules in the player's jurisdiction. And if you start having a bad run of luck, you can always switch back to the free games for practice any time. This applies for other games too, not just slots, including multiplayer games like Blackjack and Poker. And with streaming technologies being developed every day, tournaments and live games are becoming a given on Windows mobile casinos nowadays.
Gaming websites are able to automatically identify a Windows phone when it logs in. They then adjust their Flash media and displays so that the web pages can fit into the mobile device display. In the case of slot apps, though, this is different. The apps are downloaded and they open flawlessly on the Windows phones without any screen adjustments as mobile games are essentially developed for the Windows OS. The only thing a player must ensure is that their OS has the latest update and their browser has support for Flash media and HTML5.
It so happens that mobile casino game developers first make the Windows compatible versions of games before making those of Android, iPhone, and any other vendor specific platform. With the Android apps marketplace being so huge and having so many wonderful casino games apps, this means a player should be able to get a Windows mobile version of any slots that appear on the Android platfrom.
The most obvious benefit of playing slots on a mobile phone or tablet run on Windows OS is that there is absolute mobility. One can spin the reels on the boring commute, on the way home from work or even on holiday. They eliminate the need to carry around a bulky PC. There are also no compatibility issues, so any slot game can easily be downloaded from a player's regular Internet plan and transferred to their mobile device. Windows mobile are even capable of instant sharing of the games with friends via email, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and social networks.
