Mobile Casinos came about thanks to advances in smartphone technology and the fact that millions of people use smartphones nowadays. Surprisingly, they have been around for the best part of a decade now as the mobile gaming world is constantly evolving to meet players ever growing expectations.

First Mobile Slots

It was in 2005 that the first casino game was released on a mobile phone. It was called PubFruity and it was programmed in Java. It was a fairly basic game by today's standards as it only featured three reels with three rows and some very simple graphics. An interesting thing about this game is that you had to pay for it to play it but there were no money rewards, only virtual rewards and the only money you lost was for the purchase of the game itself. Throughout this time, players could not win any real money on mobile phones. The programming language Java was a big stumbling block here as it was quite tricky to code in and it did not help matters that different phones ran different types of the Java platform. A lot of time was spent on adapting games to different mobile platforms rather than producing better games for players.
