Gala Casino MOBILE INFORMATION
- Playing blackjack on my mobile device
Playing blackjack on your mobile is a similar experience to playing it on a laptop or desktop at home. The main difference is screen size obviously which presents no major issues, but you get the added convenience of being able to play anywhere there is an internet connection. We find that playing a game with a thumb is faster and slightly more intimate than when using a mouse as well. All up, blackjack at Gala Casino on mobile is as good as on any other device, truth be told we prefer playing this way.
- Advantages of mobile blackjack
The two main advantages of playing mobile blackjack are speed and convenience. It is so much faster to quickly unlock your phone and click on an app when compared to firing up a laptop or desktop. Especially when using old kit the boot-up times on an old laptop can be considerable. Working hand in hand with this is convenience – you can literally play a hand or two of blackjack at Gala Casino whenever and wherever you are providing you are connected, and this includes with live dealers and Gala Casino.
- Are online blackjack games legal on mobile?
There are two main requirements for legally playing blackjack on a mobile in the UK. First up, the user must be at least 18 years old. Secondly, the site must be licensed by the UK Gambling Commission which Gala Casino most certainly is and is mentioned at the bottom of the page when using their app. If both of these conditions are met then it is legally acceptable to play blackjack games on mobile.
- Getting started at Gala Casino's online mobile blackjack
As you’d expect, Gala have made this procedure as painless as possible for new potential users. The first thing to do is download the app from the appropriate app store on your device – simply search for Gala Casino and click on ‘get’ and ‘install’. Once the app is downloaded and opened on your phone click the orange Login button at the top of the screen to go through the sign-up process. Once that is complete, then the fun part of playing the games has arrived. To find a blackjack game, head to the homepage and just below the promotion picture are card games that you can scroll through. For a ‘live casino in your pocket’ experience then click on the top left menu button to select live games with over 20 live dealers at Gala Casino.
Gala Casino MOBILE FAQs
- Which is the best mobile device to play blackjack on?
Neither device has an advantage over the other so there is no best mobile device to play blackjack at Gala Casino on. This just comes down to personal preference, for us we liked playing on a tablet when at home when it was possible or on mobile when out and about or when the tablet wasn’t handy. Screen size didn’t seem to have any effect on how we approached the games, though when playing with the live dealers at Gala Casino it was more enjoyable on a tablet.
- Do I have to be online to play on my mobile?
Whichever type of device you use you will need to be connected to the internet to play games at the Gala Casino app. When we attempted to open the app without being connected to the internet resulted in a message popping up saying there was a network error and it would not open. Fortunately, with the widespread use of Wi-Fi and cellular coverage, this rarely presented a problem.
- Can you play mobile blackjack for real money?
Yes, the focus at Gala Casino is playing for real money. If you have never done this before then you must set a limit for your bankroll and stick to it, there are plenty of resources that explain this aspect of gaming in more detail and are well worth a read. Once you are ready, or for the seasoned veterans out there, then Gala Casino provides a safe environment for testing your skill and luck with blackjack.
- Is mobile blackjack safe?
It is as safe as it can get through Gala Casino. The company has been around since the early 1990s so it is by no means a newcomer to the market that is going to vanish overnight. The company has a good reputation and uses SSL encryption technology to keep individual data safe from malicious third parties. Another key factor in safety is that Gala Casino is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission which was set up to help protect British gamers.
- Do I have the same chance of winning on mobile as on desktop?
Yes, there is the same chance of winning on a mobile device as there is on a desktop computer. The games are the same on each platform; the live games go through to the same tables, so there is the same chance of winning on both.
