The age-old war between Android and Apple users has been waged since the first of these smartphones hit the shelves. One group swear that Apple remains on top while the other army waves their pitchforks and claim Apple is listening to you sleep. From the founded to the bizarre claims, there is a more niche argument circulating on gaming forums and on Facebook groups. And that argument is which type of smartphone is better for online gaming.

For people who like to play slots at Royal Vegas Casino and play smartphone games on the move, the decision of what smartphone to buy can hinge on its ability to play games efficiently and reliably. So, which OS is better for video and casino gaming?

Apple Users Get Their Games First

It is an undeniable fact that Apple smartphone owners get to access game titles from the Apple Store before their counterparts will see them available on the Google Play Store. The reason for this is rather straightforward. When developers make games, they only have to cater the games to a limited number of OS versions and only two different types of devices, iPads and iPhones. On the other hand, when developers create games for Android users, they will have to make the game applicable for vastly more OS versions from different smartphone companies.

This is the norm for video-type games, but what about casino games? Most casinos will enable users to use their apps or smartphone site from Apple and Android smartphones. This means their casino games have usually already been made to fit both before release, or the games are limited to certain Android devices.

Apple’s Gambling Crackdown

Anyone who owns an Apple smartphone and plays games on it will be aware that Apple can randomly introduce new laws that wipe games off their store. This can be done to any type of app and for a host of reasons, yet, Apple did ban hundreds of gambling apps overnight and this affected millions of casino haunters. Those using the most established online casinos were not affected by Apple’s decluttering process, but Android does not interfere in the same way. It is rare for Android to suddenly remove apps from their store and this will keep casino-lovers feeling secure.

A Word on Quality and the Verdict

If the decision between Apple and Android hinges on the quality of these games, then there is no real difference when buying the same standard of Android or Apple phone. Of course, buy an expensive Apple device and a cheap Android one and you will notice differences.

The overall verdict is that if you are playing at an established casino then there really isn't much to argue about. If you are not using renowned apps, you may need to worry about Apple removing your casino app down the line. For smartphone video gamers who want games early, choosing Apple will be the smart choice.
