It seems our lives center more and more around our mobile devices—particularly cell phones. These smartphones are more than phones, which is probably why they are called smart, they are also PDAs as well as mini computers of a sort.
Think for a moment about those iPhones—you can do the GPS thing, find the nearest location of whatever store you are looking for, download music and books, check your email. In short, they can handle many of the basic Internet functions. And this means that blackjack can go mobile with you.
There are several ways to play blackjack on the go now and all can be done on a mobile device. Granted not every single mobile device can handle blackjack on the go with every single option. Mobile devices, such as iPhones, that can go online and function like a mini computer are capable of handling mobile blackjack in a few different ways:
You can have blackjack on the go in the classic way, and simply go online with your phone to access an online casino of your choice. This would be similar to playing blackjack online on a laptop. It would be like playing in an online casino like normal but just in a very small format.
Another option, and this works if you the owner of a phone that has apps, is to download a blackjack app.
Blackjack apps, for the most part run in two varieties: the play alone and the comparing sort. Both types of blackjack apps come in a variety of qualities, and therefore in a variety of prices, ranging from free to several bucks.
The one thing that both types of apps have in common is their format. Both types will resemble the format of an online blackjack game. Visually at least. This is good because such a format is easy to understand for those who are new to online blackjack or mobile blackjack. And also because it makes the transition from online blackjack to mobile blackjack all the easier for those moving over to mobile blackjack.
Over the next couple of days we will look more at the different types of blackjack apps out there that allow us to make our blackjack mobile.
