Mobile Live Casino

Mobile Live Casino used to be a bit of an Oxymoron, but it was only a matter of time before playing live casino games on mobile devices would become more widely adopted.

All of the major live casino software companies have mobile solutions for their games. Although one or two are still struggling to get the whole of their games portfolios into a mobile format.

Live Roulette was the first game rolled out by many suppliers and there is now an abundance of good quality games, like the excellent 3 card poker and Ultimate Texas Hold’em from Evolution.

Playability has improved, but WIFI or 4G are still the best options if you want a stable and lag free playing experience regardless of what the casinos will tell you.

Mobile interfaces now look the same as their PC counterparts. This has a lot to do with the adoption of HTML5 for coding.

Mobile Live Casino Apps are widely used but there is an equal amount of in-browser solutions available. I think there will always be a place for apps given the smoothness they bring to the games, but I do think they won’t be such large downloads.

Mobile Live Casino Apps

Most online casinos use apps to access their casino games on mobile devices.

They can be got for free from either the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store or directly from the casinos websites.

Some of the apps are very comprehensive, downloading quite a lot of information, whilst others are effectively bookmarks to the casinos mobile version of their website.

What I’ve discovered with Apps is you need to keep them up to date.

I’ve found that older versions don’t display the latest games or use the latest playing interfaces. While the apps will continue to work, you’ll find they often freeze and give you a real crappy experience. So before you do anything when playing live dealer games on your moblie make sure you use the latest version of the mobile app.

Generally the apps just plug in to the software providers mobile lobby, but there are three casinos that have added another layer that make it easier to access the games when playing on your phone or tablet.

Mobile Live Casino Comparison

Compare Mobile Live Casinos

There are still some anomalies with the way some mobile live dealer solutions have been deployed. It can be frustrating when you’re looking to play live casino games on your mobile only to find that a game is not available for your device type or operating system.

These are not helped by a lot of  misinformation printed on Casino Review sites, that don’t really know what they are talking about.

So this comparison table lists off of the games by supplier and whether they are available on Android & iOS device. I’ve also included a bit about the viewing format as they may be important to some people.

I’ve been in touch with the suppliers to double check what I found. I’ve also spent a chunk of time testing and comparing all the games on my trusty Android mobile phone (Samsung S7 Edge) and my iPAD to see if the games do as they say on the tin.

Some Points to Note:

The playing experience on a Mobile Phone is different from that on a Tablet. Playing live casino games on a Tablet is much closer to the desktop experience.

Evolution, only allows landscape mode on Tablets, whereas Playtech and the others providers allow both Landscape and Portrait.

With a tablet you tend to play with it resting on your knees or in two hands, so landscape is all you really need.

However on a mobile phone I tend use it one handed so I also need to be able to play live casino games in that way.

That’s why Portrait mode is so important on smaller devices. If a casino doesn’t offer portrait play then i’m unlikely to play there for very long.

Mobile Live Casino

Mobile Live Casino Games

In general mobile players have access to the complete range of live casino games.

Mobile Live Blackjack

Evolution, Playtech, NetEnt & Extreme Live Gaming are the major suppliers with Live Blackjack on Mobile. The game is presented in both landscape and portrait orientations, with the exception of Netent who only offers a landscape version.

Apart from Netent live casinos, Blackjack side bets can be played everywhere else.

Playtech offers both European and Vegas rules while the others all play to Vegas Rules.

Most tables offer 7 seat, while Playtech and NetEnt has a version called Unlimited Mobile Blackjack, where multiple players all play the same hand.

If you want to guarantee yourself a place on a 7 seat table, play somewhere like Mr Green where there are dedicated tables.

Mobile Live Roulette

Roulette is probably the most mobile friendly game there is and perhaps that’s the reason why it has the most variations on offer.

Mobile European and American Roulette are options at Evolution, while all other providers just offer European single zero roulette.

Land based streaming is popular, the most tables being available at Evolution casinos.

Authentic Gaming (no UK License yet) has a large selection of land based tables from European casino resorts. Their games really suit experienced players, as the playing interfaces have been adapted to give a player every betting option they could want.

Portrait versions of mobile roulette all seem to have floating windows for the video streaming, allowing you to move them around the playing interface. The betting grids are maximised during betting time to make placing bets as easy as possible.

Mobile Live Baccarat

I don’t suppose I should be surprised but all versions of baccarat can be played on mobile. I thought at least games involving the Squeeze might not, but they are. Both Evolution and Playtech has Baccarat Squeeze.

Other versions of Baccarat include No Commission, standard Baccarat and Mini Baccarat, which a choice of side bets.

Baccarat Road maps are available, but are a bit fiddly to read on smaller mobile devices. My preference when using them is to play on a Tablet.

Mobile Live 3 Card Poker

This is only available at Mobile live casinos with Evolution software. The game is presented in Portrait and landscape options. I prefer to play in Landscape & in full screen mode.

It’s one of my favourite poker derived game as it’s easy and quick to play.

The real money gets paid on the side bets, but they are only worth playing if you have the bankroll to and get an early hit. Otherwise you’ll lose your money, shirt and maybe your temper, lol.

Mobile Live Casino Hold’em

This is by far the most popular poker based live casino game.

It out performs all the others put together. It’s based on the classic Texas Hold’em.

The mobile version of Casino Hold’em is just as playable as the desktop version.

It’s a one player hand game that an unlimited number of players bet on. The side bets on this game are very popular, with the 6 card bonus giving you a chance even if your main hand is rubbish!

Mobile Live Caribbean Stud Poker

This isn’t one of my favourite games, but it does have a loyal following.

It’s one of the few live games that follow the original stud poker rules. 5 cards are dealt to the player and five to the dealer. The best hand wins. It’s as simple as that.

There is the option to play side bets including a very lucrative Progressive Jackpot.

Caribbean Stud poker can be played in Landscape mode only.

Mobile Live Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker

This is another variation of single hand Texas Hold’em. This differs from UTH in the way betting proceeds through the game. The Side Bets are paid out for more unusual hands, so gives a nice twist to the game.

I like this game very much. I tend to play more on a Tablet and Desktop than on my phone, as you need to concentrate as the cards are dealt, and I can’t do that if out and about.

Again, this is only available at Evolution Mobile Casinos.

Mobile Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em

This is only available at the Evolution mobile casinos. It’s playable in both landscape and Portrait screen orientations.

This is a one handed game that requires up to 4 playing decisions to be made during game play. You may find this a problem if you’re in an area where connectivity isn’t that great. I’d be inclined to play on Wifi or in a very good 4G area.

Mobile Live Dream Catcher

Dream Catcher is Evolution Gaming’s Wheel of fortune type game. It works well on Mobile, with both a landscape and portraits playing interface being offered to players.

It’s one of those games that requires your attention. Lots of chat and interaction with the dealer makes this game and that can be hard to enjoy if you’re playing on a small screen.

Mobile Live Spin A Win

Spin A win is Playtech’s version of Dream Catcher, but with some additional side bets. The same applies with this game.

While it’s playable on a small screen you’ll get a better experience on a larger screen.

Mobile Live Hi Lo

This is a very simple game, you have to predict whether the next card drawn will be higher or lower than the previous cards.

Hi Lo is a quick game and ideally suited for mobile devices,. As long as you place a bet and it’s confirmed the game plays out with n further interaction required.

Mobile live Hi Lo is available at Playtech Casinos.

Mobile Live Dragon Tiger

Dragon Tiger is a Baccarat Style game, but only one card is dealt to the Dragon/Tiger position, which represents the player and banker. The High card wins.

Both Evolution and Playtech have mobile versions of Dragon Tiger and they both play in portrait and landscape modes.

Mobile Live Sic Bo

I’ve yet to find a mobile version of Live Sic Bo.

This dice game has a huge variety of bets that can be made, so perhaps that’s why we have seen a mobile version.

Mobile Live 3 Card Brag

I don’t know about you, but my very first card game I learnt was 3 card brag. It’s the forerunner of live 3 card poker. They are both played the same, it’s just the hand values are different.

3 Card Brag is available at Playtech Casinos and is another game that has transitioned well to the small screen.

Mobile Casino Bonuses

Bonuses for live casino games are generally not worth taking. This is because they come with large wagering requirements attached to them.

The Welcome & Promotional bonuses offered by online casinos generally do not distinguish between desktop or mobile devices. Bonuses are normally open to everyone as long as you meet the qualifying criteria.

I have some live casino bonuses listed on my Live Promotions page, which may entice you to sign up and play.

Please read the terms and conditions if you decide to take up a casino offer as they can have restrictions on what you can and can’t do with the bonus. Read them please. You’ll be disappointed if you try to do a withdrawal and discover it’s been rejected because you broke the rules! You’d be surprised how often that happens.

Valid Mobile Devices to play live casino games on

If your Mobile device has an internet browser, like Google, Chrome, Internet Explorer, FireFox, Mozilla, Safari, Microsoft Edge on it you should be able to play live casino games.

Current brands of mobile phones and tablets include Samsung, Apple, Nokia, Sony, HTC, Alcaltel, Google, LG, Motorola, Huawei, Microsoft, Blackberry, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Acer, ASUS, Oppo, OnePlus, Meiuz, ZTE, Toshia, Vodafone, Energizer, Xolo, Lava, Micromax, Blu, Wiko, Leeco, Vivo, Panasonic, HP, Yu, VeryKool, Maxwest & Plum.

The most popular models are the Samsung S7, S8, S9 and Apple iOS devices including the iPhone and iPad.

Live Streaming Connections – Are they still bad?

If you’re planning on playing live casino games on a mobile device you need to make sure you have a good connection to the Internet.

The best possible connection is Broadband which you can connect to on you’re mobile device using Bluetooth or Wifi, depending on the type of router you have. My recommendation is Wifi, as Bluetooth connections can be a bit flaky.

4g data connections is the next best and is normally used when you’re out and haven’t go access to Wifi. If you’re planning on steaming live casino game content for a long time make sure you have a big enough data allowance.

The stability of the streamed connection for mobile live casino play has always been the weak point. However the suppliers have done a great job in using some of the latest technologies to reduce the latency and lag so often experienced by earlier platforms.

Some software suppliers like Playtech and  Evolution have been able to throw money at the problem, and they both have the best mobile streams.

If you’re playing using a 3G connection you will have a problem. My advice is don’t use 3G if you’re gambling. You will have lag, the sessions will drop out and you’ll lose money when you can’t complete the next part of your bet.

Reviews of Mobile Live Casinos

Here is a more detailed list of the live casinos that can be played on mobile.

Although some casinos use the same software platform they may not necessarily have the same games, don’t just assume they do.

The stakes are the same as you’ll find on the desktop.

The games render very well and the in browser games are very impressive. I would choose a larger device such as a tablet to play, but all games work fine on a mobile phone. Bandwidth is probably your biggest enemy so try and play on WiFi or a 4G connection for the best experience.
