Welcome to Gambling App Store – your one-stop-shop for accessing all the best mobile gambling apps on the market.
As you likely know, online gambling (including mobile gambling) is licensed and monitored by the UK Gambling Commission, established in 2005 along with the UK Gambling Act. Here at Gambling App Store, we do our best to guide you in accordance, only covering approved casinos. That being said, we highly recommend you take note of a number of matters each time you venture over to a mobile casino or try a new gaming app, to ensure its meeting locally set standards.
UK Gambling Commission certification – Any casino, sports betting site, poker room, or bingo app that’s been approved by the UK Gambling Commission will proudly display its stamp of approval. This certification is usually found at the bottom of each page of the casino’s website. And since it’s so valuable, most casinos will also mention it un their “About Us” and “FAQ” page.
18+ only – This criterion basically goes hand-in-hand with local certification, as it’s one of the basics checked by the UK Gambling Commission to gain its approval. In addition to displaying a symbol at the bottom of each screen/page, reputable casinos are expected to take reasonable measures to ensure that players are above the age of 18 when they signup, including requesting their age, and some form of identity verification.
Responsible gaming – Casinos aren’t just responsible for providing you with games, promotions and winnings. The Gambling Commission expects them to lookout for your best interest as well. This means helping to identify and prevent problem gambling. As such, each mobile gambling forum must provide you with a clearly visible link to local help organisations – the foremost being Gamble Aware, Gambling Therapy, and Gamblers Anonymous – each of which can give you both advise and support in dealing with a potential or existing problem.
Budgeting made easy – Part in parcel of meeting responsible gaming criteria includes an option on any mobile gaming app or site that allows you to set a budget. This means you should be able to set yourself a maximum limit, according to your preferred timeframe, and exclude yourself entirely, should certain criteria be met.
Responsive customer support – When you’re gambling from your mobile device, the action never stops, or at least it conforms to your timetable. As such, your chosen establishment should provide you with the customer support that meets your needs. If you’re looking for certainty, then obviously 24/7 is best. Mother tongue English is a must-have. And of course email, live chat, and phone are non-negotiables.
External monitoring – As an added layer of certainty, it’s always good for your mobile gambling app to have an external monitoring body looking in. Many UK sites will proudly display the eCOGRA logo, which focuses on dispute resolution. Others will have TST certification, meaning they’ve been tested and approved by this internationally recognised iGaming testing facility. SSL certification is another biggie to be on the lookout for, as it’s key in keeping your data safe.
Whilst there are others in the game, we proudly distinguish ourselves on numerous fronts. First of all, because the apps and mobile market change on a regular basis, due to updates in technologies, it’s super important to stay current. Here at Gambling App Store, we make it our business to stay on top of all the latest advances.
Take a look around the site, and as you can see, it’s extremely organized and intuitive. Looking for a casino app? No problem, just click the ‘Casino apps’ tab and scour through our list ‘til you find what you like. Same goes for poker apps, sports apps, and bingo apps – which are each given their own section.
To help you get started instantly, without the need to scour the internet to find the gambling app you’re after, we’ve included a ‘Download’ link for each and every app we’ve reviewed, right on the review page.
Simply click the download button, and follow the easy install instructions, as outlined on the page. They’re the same for all Android gambling apps. If you need any further assistance in the download process, or want to better understand what an Android app download or APK file entails, feel free to visit our comprehensive FAQ page.
Another important thing to note: Since each Android app reviewed on the Gambling App Store site has been fully researched and tested by our in-house staff, we can assure you that all apps downloaded here are completely virus free. This means no corrupted files, no second-rate gambling sites. When you download from Gambling App Store you always get the real deal, safe and secure!
As a resource site, needless to say, we do not charge you anything for browsing at www.gamblingappstore.net. Nor are you charged when you decide to download a gambling app. In fact, all sports, bingo, poker and casino apps found here are yours to download absolutely free!
Now this is an excellent question! And since some great casino, poker and even sports betting sites don’t yet have apps and only operate on mobile platforms, we don’t want to knock them too much. Besides, most mobile sites these days are pretty excellent, if truth be told.
That being said, Android gambling apps are first and foremost, super convenient, putting your favourite gambling hotspots right there, front and centre on your phone, for a single click whenever the urge strikes. You can also keep your apps nicely arranged this way, with sports apps neatly arranged together and casino apps in their place. This makes it incredibly easy to navigate and find exactly what you’re looking for, anytime.
Some mobile apps also include special bonuses and promotions, exclusive to app users. This is especially true for sports apps that will give you free bets every now and then, as well as casinos that periodically pop up with special in-app free spins. But mostly, it’s kind of like how most of us use the Facebook app or Gmail app. Rather than browsing to the site each time, it’s just easier, better and so much clearer through the app!
In order to add any gambling app to your mobile device – whether it’s a smartphone or a tablet – you will first need to adjust the security settings to allow for unknown sources. This is in no way as scary as it sounds. For obvious reasons, Android devices are pre-set to allow only apps from the Google Play store to be download. By clicking the ‘Unknown Sources’ box in your settings, you’re simply allowing your device to download apps from other sources.
As soon as you’ve opened up your device to ‘Unknown Sources’, downloading any of our casino or sports betting apps is a snap! As mentioned above, just click on the big green ‘Download’ or ‘Play Now’ button at the top of any review page. Next it’s a click, and a click to install the APK file, which is the file in which the casino or sports betting app is contained. Once you’ve done that the gambling app is at your fingertips, and you’re ready to wager on the go!
