Towards the end of December 2014, Microgaming announced via a press release that it has launched the online gaming industry’s first real money casino app which you can now find at the Windows Phone Store. This app was actually launched back in November and if you want to check it out today, you’ll need to head over to Jackpot City Mobile Casino.
This brand new application from Microgaming is suitable for any device running on either Windows Phone 8.0 or Windows Phone 8.1. A mobile version of Jackpot City Casino has been around for a couple of years now, but players could only access this platform using an Android mobile device, or by using an iPhone or an iPad (and certain Symbian devices).
This new software has been developed from scratch and it uses native code and native user interface components. This user-friendly mobile casino app has both a smooth and responsive layout and it allows players to install games in less than three taps. This impressive technology from Microgaming and Microsoft can also detect a player’s device type and it will automatically adjust to each type of mobile device to give players the best possible gaming experience every time.
This cutting edge technology will be frequently updated and new games will continue to arrive throughout the year. At the time of writing, players can find a total of 35 different mobile casino games and these include classic mobile pokies (with 3 reels and 1 winning payline), as well as video pokies (5 reels and multiple winning paylines), table games, card games, video pokers, instant win games and progressive jackpot games.
“We follow mobile developments very closely and recent statistics show that the Windows Phone market share is increasing significantly across many European countries. With this in mind, we believe that Microsoft's mobile platform is an important one to invest in. We saw an opportunity and we jumped at it,” said the Head of Casino at Microgaming, John Quinn. We obtained these words from the official Microgaming website.
Some of the top mobile casino games to keep an eye out for include (in no particular order) Tomb Raider, Mega Moolah, Thunderstruck, Thunderstruck 2, Immortal Romance, The Dark Knight Rises, Mermaids Millions, European Roulette, European Blackjack, Alaskan Fishing, Carnaval, Voila, Treasure Nile, Pure Platinum, Jacks or Better, Aces & Eights, Aces & Faces, Deuces Wild, Ladies Nite, Spring Break, Avalon, Adventure Palace, Tally Ho, Deck the Halls, Burning Desire and Agent Jane Blonde.
Sign up to Jackpot City Casino today and you can take advantage of a massive NZ$1,600 welcome bonus which is spread out over your first four deposits. You can deposit at Jackpot City Casino using various reliable NZ online payment options and you can benefit from local 24 hour toll-free telephone support and 24 hour live chat support.
A spokesperson for Jackpot City Casino made the following comments, which we also obtained from the Microgaming website: “This app, created by Microgaming, is the perfect gaming stage for our players with Windows Phones. It is feature rich, with a plethora of Microgaming's first-class games, whilst also being incredibly user-friendly and reliable. It offers a first-rate gaming experience. What's more, apps such as these play an integral role in an online casino strategy, particularly in terms of retention and customer loyalty; it puts us in a great position to take full advantage of the thriving mobile gaming industry.”
We also expect this new Windows Phone application to start arriving in even more NZ mobile casinos as we move deeper into 2015. Some of our other most highly recommended New Zealand online casinos include Cabaret Club Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino and Spin Palace Casino.
