The first iPhone was released in 2007- can you believe that? And since then, this phenomenon has gone from strength to strength becoming ever more powerful. Today, the latest iPhones are powerful pocket computers that can handle just about anything you can throw at them. And that includes the best games for mobiles like the Avalon slot machine from Microgaming!
Along with all of that increase in computing power came faster and faster connection speeds (things don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon) which means that the gaming experience on these phones has been transformed.
I remember, back in the day, the so called experts forecasting the rise of mobile on the Internet. They used to bang on about it year after year, but the experience was so poor that, well everyone just stuck to their laptops.
Well that has all changed, and there are many slots developers these days who design their games for mobiles and tablets first, and then they think about how the game might look on a lap-top or desktop. The genie is well and truly out of the bottle!
We can think of plenty of games that play just as well on a smaller screen and some games that are just a whole lot better! Some of the newer games include haptic feedback, so when you hit a big win, hold on tight or your phone might well buzz out of your hand!
And then next stop? That will be VR casinos. We’re not there yet, but we have tried some of the prototypes and they are good! (Even if there is some more work to do).
So, which are the best iPhone slots? We list some of our favourites
Lucky Leprechaun Slot
This game looks great on an iPhone. There is a free spins bonus and a Trail of Fortune bonus where you can win a multiplier (on your bet) of up to 1000x your bet.
All you need to do is to land 3 Pots of Gold symbols in the base game are you will trigger the bonus.
The wild symbols also stack on this game- it’s a bright and cheerful, feel good slot. The colours will jump out of your iPhone screen!
To begin with, Microgaming only made their original Thunderstruck slot available on mobile, but they must have seen the tide turning as they quickly powered Thunderstruck 2 up on mobile too.
And that put a smile on our face, as this game ranks as one of the best slots of all time (in our humble opinion).
And they’ve done a great job on it too.
All of the NetEnt slots look superb on an iPhone- especially the big ones. This is a company that manages to make their games look better on a smaller screen. You can play Gonzo’s Quest, you can play The Invisible Man slot, but if you really want to blow your socks off on the train, you’ll need to fire up the Motorhead slot and turn it up!
This homage to Lemmy is everything that you’d want in an iPhone slot. We also love their other Rock Out games- the Jimi Hendrix slot and the Guns n Roses slot, which is an absolute beast. But for sheer volume and power, their Motorhead game edges it!
