Android finally surpassed iOS as the market dominator for mobile operating systems in 2015, a feat which means no longer do iPhone or iPad users receive preferential treatment when it comes to mobile optimised gaming platforms. The Internet’s leading real money bingo sites have recently stepped into the mobile world, so Android users have a fabulous supply of bingo games available at their fingertips from anywhere an Internet connection can be established, which we detail and list below.
Mobile bingo for Android users
There are a few things we look for before recommending a housie site: security, variety and reputation, to name a few. We’ve compiled a list of the best, safest real money Android bingo sites that cater to Aussie players. No need to download any apps, just click on the links to head direct to the mobile site and start playing bingo using AUD today:
- Bingo Australia – progressive bingo jackpots, 75 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo and pokies, Bingo Australia has it all. Android users are privileged to access the entire site via browser play, with housie cards starting at a mere 20 cents per game. Kick things off with a no deposit required $20 bonus and receive up to 1000% matched deposit when funding your account for the first time.
- Lucky Pants Bingo – if mobile bingo is what you want, then mobile bingo is what you’ll get at Lucky Pant’s beautifully optimised Android site. This mobile site ticks all the right boxes and is effortless to navigate around, using the same quirky animation from the desktop site. Bingo cards start from as little as a cent, which means that $5 no deposit welcome bonus can go a long way. There’s also a bunch of slots here if you like a bit of variety, with 20 free spins awarded upon registration.
- Karamba – The Android Karamba site is really impressive, but you won’t find any bingo games here yet, just a good selection of pokies and table games. Karamba’s desktop site has a good handful of bingo titles (Bingo Bonanza and Bubble Bingo to name a couple), so we predict it’s a short matter of time before you can play Android bingo at Karamba’s mobile site.
Compatible Android devices for online bingo
There are literally thousands of mobile devices working on the Android operating system and as long as you’re running updated versions of Flash, HTML5 or Java, phones or tablets from the following manufacturers are eligible for online bingo access:
- Sony / Sony Ericsson
- Dell Venue series
There’s no need to head to Google Play to download bingo apps; our recommended mobile bingo sites are available directly over your Android browser so just click on the links to the bingo sites listed above using your mobile or tablet to head straight to the mobile bingo rooms.
Making bingo deposits on your Android smartphone or tablet
Depositing funds to your bingo account using your Android device is just as safe and easy as if you were using the full desktop site. Mobile deposits are accepted in AUD using payment options such as Visa, MasterCard, direct bank transfers, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard among others. Our recommended Android sites are protected by SSL security encryption to ensure safe bingo deposits on the go.
Is Android or iOS better for mobile bingo?
Mobile users can be pretty die-hard about their chosen operating system, so whether you are an Android person or an iPhone person will ultimately come down to personal preferences. When it comes to online gaming, advantages of using an Android system for bingo include:
- With a wide range of device models available (Samsung, Nokia, Sony, LG, etc) you can get much bigger, clearer screens than the standard iPhone and playing with vivid graphics definitely enhances the mobile bingo experience.
- Android’s Google powered app store is superior to the iOS App Store, making it much easier to neatly arrange your devices desktop, which can come in handy when creating your own bingo Web apps.
- The Android OS is celebrated as being more user friendly for the mobile inexperienced, so if you’re an older player or just not savvy with tech skills, you may find it a bit easier to play bingo using an Android device
As far as loading speeds go, this will depend on the software version you have on your phone or tablet as well as the strength of your internet connection, so neither iPhone or Android win that round.
If you already have a registered account with any of these desktop bingo sites, you can use the same login details to sign in on your Android device. If you’re a new player, now is a great time to take advantage of some of the awesome welcome promos offered at these mobile bingo sites.
