Real Money Casinos for iPad

iPad CasinosAn iPad casino gives a player access to all the games you'd find in online casinos. If you've gambled on the Internet in the past 10 or 15 years, you'll know that an online casino offers games like blackjack, baccarat, roulette, keno, craps, video poker, and slots. Players download casino software which gives their computer access to these games, or they play in their web browser without a download using a Flash game. Mobile casinos, designed to work with mobile devices, including cell phones and tablet computers. A player can log on to a iPad casino and use their iPhones, smart phones, or tablets to play casino games for real money. Casino apps are designed for separate operating systems, so someone with an iOS device is going to need a different gambling app than someone with an Android OS, Windows OS, or BlackBerry OS.

When playing at a mobile casino with your iPad, you'll need to check the system requirements to make sure your iOS tablet or phone is compatible. Here in late 2012, most mobile casinos require an iPad to run either an iOS 3.x or iOS 4.x or later. That means the original iPad or the iPad 2 should have no compatibility issues.

Ipad Slot Machines for Real Money

Playing slot machines on iPad gives you the best mobile experience, because the iPad screen gives the best picture for the enhanced graphics and interactive bonus games of the 5-reel video slots. Real money gamblers love slot machines, though that's no always a good thing. Experts say slot machines make up about 70% of the revenues of land-based casinos, because these machines have a higher house edge than most table games and players flock to slots row. If you're looking for a relaxing way to gamble without having to worry about strategy, fruit machines or slots are your game. If you prefer better odds or more strategy, let's look at other options.

Video Poker for Ipad

Video poker games looks a lot like slots games at first glance when you walk into a casino, but the two games are much different. First, video poker requires a player to study a strategy chart and make real decisions. Second, video poker offers the second-best odds in a mobile casino, behind only blackjack. Playing a video poker machine on your iPad tablet is relaxing in my experience, because the touchscreen interface let's you pick which cards to hold or discard with ease of motion. If you've never played video poker, but you feel comfortable with the poker hand ranks, this is the game you should try.

Blackjack on iPad

You'll find plenty of blackjack simulators for free play, but if you want the real money blackjack experience, gamble on blackjack at an iPad casino. You'll have your choice of twenty-one variants, including classic blackjack, perfect pairs, Spanish 21, double exposure, match play 21, pontoon, super-21, and European blackjack. Each of these games have slightly different rules, including a number of side bets for higher payouts. Just keep in mind the classic game has the best odds.

Roulette on Ipad

Most mobile casinos offer both European roulette and American roulette. Unless you have the option of playing American roulette using the imprisonment (en prison) rules you'll find in European live casinos, don't play the American or double-zero roulette. Choice European roulette, because the house edge is cut in half (2.63% down fro 5.26%). The iPad mobile roulette is determined with a random number generator, but the spinning wheel simulation is realistic. Once again, roulette is a relaxing, slow-paced game without a lot of strategy decisions.

iPad Craps for Real Money

Craps offers a lot of action and excitement. Find multiplayer craps for the iPad, because that's the only good simulation of the brick-and-mortar casino craps. Multi-player craps give players a chance to interact with other Wifi gamblers, like you would at a live craps table.
