Online gambling has become a sensational phenomenon in the gambling industry, rising up the ranks to become a multi-billion business on its own. Even with all the gambling restrictions and regulations placed on online gambling by different countries, it still managed to grow and is expected to become a multi-trillion dollars industry within the next few years. Sports match-betting alone is estimated to be worth anywhere between $700 billion to $1 trillion already in 2013. No wonder websites that offer casino promos, like SugarHouse Casino Online, have become quite common.
Before, you could n only play online through a PC. But now that smartphones are a thing, playing on your phone instead, seems to be more logical: it’s portable, you can bring your smartphone literally everywhere and all you need is a good signal to have a stable internet connection, which can be either data or WiFi. It is also cheaper to play on a phone than on a PC due to less consumption of electricity. However, due to gambling games still being games, not only do they consume power and bandwidth they also consume RAM and processing power. Smartphones with not enough RAM will definitely experience slowness and may even see their smartphones grind to a halt. Obviously, I mean this graphics-wise since any computing done by a game is made server-side to stop the possibility of cheating.
So here are the best phones to date for playing online gambling games, in no particular order:
- Apple iPhone X. That A11 bionic neural engine with 6 cores has enough processing power to process the details of your face taken by the FaceID function. If the power is used to process graphics of the games you play on your phone it probably won’t even break a sweat. You’ll probably enjoy playing flashy games on it without worrying seeing any slowdowns.
- Samsung Galaxy S9. Depends on where you buy it, but there might be no difference between the Exynos 9810 and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845.
- Samsung Galaxy S8. Both Galaxy S8 and Nokia are using a one generation old chipset: a Snapdragon 835. That is IF you live in America or China. If you live anywhere else, your Galaxy phone will be using an Exynos 8895 Octa. But even if they’re a generation old they might not be as obsolete as how some people they think they are.
- Apple iPhone 8. Obviously overshadowed by the iPhone X during its release, the iPhone 8 is just a generation old, meaning that it can still likely handle the required RAM and graphics to play online casinos.
- Nokia 8 Sirocco. The new Nokia flagship uses the same last generation chipset while charging as if it is using the current generation chipset. A bit cheeky considering Nokia is known to manufacture budget phones. Nonetheless, it does give the 8 Sirocco the same power as the Galaxy S8. It can definitely deliver quality graphics without encountering any problem or slowdowns.
