The online casino market has changed incredibly over the past few years. Around the year 2000 the online casino industry started offering online casinos with casino games on the internet. In the beginning there were only slots and slot machines.
20 years later live casinos and live games are available today. It has recently become possible to play games of chance in Austria on mobile phones. The so-called casino apps have become indispensable on the smartphone. Because the boom in online casino games is increasingly moving in the direction of mobile gaming.
What are online casino apps?
But before we talk about how to invest in an online casino, we have to take a look at how an internet casino or an app is actually structured. This is the only way for you as an investor to find out which are the top casinos in which you can invest your real money. Most new online casinos offer so-called apps that you can download onto your smartphone. This is a so-called casino app!
There you have the opportunity to use real money and play slot machines or live casino games, for example. All this happens directly on your mobile phone via app. In other words, you have to go to the App Store or Google Play Store download and install an appropriate app.
It is particularly important that you only look for reputable online casinos that offer these apps. Unfortunately, there are always black sheep at Internet casinos who want to get your money with the help of software. Therefore, it is advisable to only download online casino apps that have a good rating and are monitored and licensed by a gambling organization such as the Malta Gaming Authority.
Difference between real money apps and social casino apps
The online gambling apps are also available in two different variants. Because on the one hand you have so-called real money apps and on the other hand there are social casino apps. As the name Real Money App suggests, real money is required to play here. In other words, you bet real money and can win real money again. However, the so-called social casino apps are only about play money. You still have the choice to play all casino games, such as blackjack, roulette or jackpot machines, but in the end you only win points.
Both variants are available in the different app stores. You have to know for yourself which one you choose. Below we have created a table for you that shows some differences.
