Australians can play blackjack on Android phones and tablets via several methods, including hundreds of mobile-compatible sites and hundreds of downloadable market and non-market applications. However, playing blackjack for real money in AUD currency on your Samsung or HTC device is far less common, but there remains a perfectly legal and effective way to do so; online and mobile casinos and their respective blackjack apps.
Best mobile blackjack sites
This article will detail the most secure, highest quality and entertaining blackjack apps available to Australians and how to go about using them to enjoy blackjack for genuine cash play.
Best blackjack and casino applications
All the blackjack applications we endorse here at BlackjackApps.com.au are designed from their respective online casinos, so when you install or use a blackjack app, you gain access to a wider selection of other real money casino games, too (like roulette, baccarat, pokies, video poker, poker against the dealer, scratch cards and more). Unfortunately, due to the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill that was introduced in September 2017, these downloadable casino apps are no longer available for Australian players.
For our international readers, our top two real money blackjack casino apps are the Regal/Royal Vegas Casino application and the Leo Vegas Casino Web application.
The Regal/Royal Vegas Casino app: Available for download from Google Play for all Android devices, this native application is actually branded Regal Vegas Casino (but is Royal Vegas Casino’s official app) for marketing purposes. Based on the Royal Vegas Mobile Casino website, it hosts several different hole-card and non-hole-card games of blackjack, including Vegas Single Deck Blackjack Gold, Atlantic City Blackjack Gold and European Blackjack Gold.
The Leo Vegas Casino app: Also available for download from Google Play, the Leo Vegas Casino app is actually a Web app, rather than a dedicated market app. What’s the difference? Unlike a native/market app which is designed differently for specific operating systems and is directly installed on your device, the Web app is processed via the Internet, so no installation is required. It also uses common browser formatting language like HTML5, Flash and Java, so it can be accessed across any operating system without being built to suit different platforms (cross-platform compatibility).
We can create our own Web apps with ease from any of our recommended mobile blackjack sites (explained in detail further below), but Leo Vegas has simply chosen to have its Web app already available via a popular distributing platform (Android’s Google Play) – a smart marketing ploy, in fact. Enjoy a host of AUD blackjack titles through the Leo Vegas Web app.
Mobile blackjack & casino sites for Android smartphones & tablets
Other real money mobile blackjack and casino sites are just as good as the two above gaming platforms – these fully-fledged mobile sites are derived from their real money online casino websites, are compatible with all Android devices and maintain the high quality and advanced graphics of their desktop/computer versions.
- House of Jack Casino – a simple and elegant mobile interface with several real cash blackjack variants
- Casino-Mate – a multi-provider mobile casino website with multiple games of real money 21
- Emu Casino – a uniquely Australian-themed interactive casino site hosting hundreds of casino games including variations of blackjack
- Mucho Vegas – games are categorised neatly, with a section dedicated to casino table games, including blackjack
Within each of the above mobile casino sites, players can easily navigate to the banking/cashier section where they can deposit and withdraw money securely via one of several diverse methods such as credit and debit cards, e-wallets, pre-paid cards and vouchers and direct wire transfers.
Each mobile casino site and blackjack app is licensed and regulated by their jurisdiction’s gaming commission and adheres to strict interactive gaming standards as set out by the independent gaming authorities, such as eCOGRA.
Turn your real money games in to blackjack Web apps
From any of the above mobile casino and blackjack gaming websites, mobile users can create their own dedicated Web apps for instant access, so they no longer need to pull up their Web browser, navigate to the specific website and then navigate to the specific game.
Tap on any of the above mobile casinos directly from your mobile or tablet, and access the real money blackjack game you wish to play. From there, bring up your in-browser settings and tap on ‘add to home screen’. Establish the title for the new app, and hit create, and the Web app will pop up on your home screen, available for you to access any time you desire (you can do the same with other games).
Using this Web app uses the same amount of data as you’d utilise if you were accessing the game from the fully-fledged mobile site, it is just a more convenient method of doing so, plus it eliminates the URL toolbar, allowing for more gameplay space.
Compatible mobile devices
The following is a list of some of the more popular devices compatible with all the above mobile blackjack apps and sites:
- iPhone and iPad – all generations
- Samsung Galaxy mobile phones and tabs
- Google Nexus devices
- Windows Phone devices
