The iPhone is capable of offering so much to consumers, including the ability to play real money pokies on the go. We explain how iPhone pokies work and where you can play at the safest mobile casino sites.
Best iPhone casinos
Mobile pokies for iPhone users
iPhones rival Android for the title of most popular smartphone model, making this device highly sought after for playing pokies on the go. While hundreds of online pokies are available in instant-play mode for iPhone users, there are also several native casino apps available for Australians to legally download via the Apple App Store to start playing real money AUD pokie games directly on your iOS device.
Not all mobile casinos offer a downloadable app. The alternative is Australian Apple iPhone owners can play real cash slots directly through your mobile’s Web-browser by tapping any of the casino links on our site. You’ll be redirected to the chosen casinos iPhone compatible interface, where you can sign up and deposit cash, and even create your own homescreen web apps.
The Royal Vegas Casino official iOS app
The Royal Vegas iOS app* has around 100 unique genuine cash slot games for Australians to enjoy, just like the instant play Royal Vegas version. Many people prefer to be able to download a dedicated application on their device as opposed to accessing games through their browsers, so RV’s market/native app is the perfect piece of software for such punters. The graphics are of high quality, the different music and sounds which accompany the games give the gameplay a great feel to it, and most importantly, deposits and withdrawals are easy, secure and fast, customer assistance is available via the help tab, and navigation is a breeze.
Tap the app button to the right and you will be taken directly to the App Store to install the official application, specifically designed for iPhones.
*The app is branded Regal Vegas Casino in all stores for marketing purposes – install this app and you’ll have the option to access the Regal Vegas interface (free/practice play) or the Royal Vegas interface (AUD real money play).
Instant play iPhone pokies and creating web apps
Each of our recommended pokies sites optimise game-play to suit those using Apple’s iOS. With the latest technology (which continues to improve every day) the quality and convenience of real money gaming directly through our iPhone browsers is another ideal way to enjoy the slots. If you’re reading this on your iPhone, tap any of the links below to head directly to the browser based mobile casino, and claim some exclusive welcome offers:
Additionally, Apple users can choose to add selected casinos to their home-screen by creating an instant-play app icon – which is known as either a Web app or a browser-based app – when encouraged to do so in their Web-browser. Simply bring up the in-browser settings on your iPhone when you’re on your chosen website, select ‘add to home screen’, create the title for the icon to show up on your home-screen, and let Apple do the rest. Once added, you will be able to access all your favourite pokie games directly from this newly created icon, with the URL bar now done away with in order to create more screen room for your game-play. Web apps work exactly like a downloaded app, but without taking up hardly any memory on your device.

What games can Apple users play?
Now that mobile technology has expanded to everyday use, online casinos have kept up with the demand by optimising many of their most popular titles for mobile play. Along with some of the most popular pokies from Microgaming, NetEnt, BetSoft, Thunderkick, Quickspin, Yggdrasil and Play’n Go, you’ll also find table games and even some live dealer games optimised for portable play on your iPhone.
While mobile casinos don’t offer the same selection of pokies as their desktop counterparts, iPhone users will be more than satisfied with the diversity and range of mobile games on offer. New games are being released for mobile play all the time, so you never have to wait long before something new and exciting comes up at our recommended iPhone pokies sites.
Many of Microgaming’s most popular progressive jackpot slot titles are available for iPhone users – Mega Moolah, Major Millions, Cash Splash and Treasure Nile – along with 3-reel, 5-reel and 243-Ways pokies (including Thunderstruck II, Agent Jane Blonde, Break da Bank Again, 5-Reel Drive and Tomb Raider). Microgaming’s iPhone casinos also offer a list of the most common video poker titles, for those who are keen for games requiring a touch more skill than the lucky slots.
Hit the app buttons above button to get started – you will be automatically taken to the mobile casino site compatible with iPhone. If you are on another device, Royal Vegas auto-detects what device you are using, and takes you the appropriate platform.
Casino banking from the iPhone
Funding your online pokies casino account can be completed directly from your iPhone with ease. After registration, you need simply to head to the dedicated cashier section of the website, which forwards you to a secure and private banking platform. Here you have the choice to deposit AUD money via one of several options, including some of these fast and most popular deposit methods:
- Visa or MasterCard (credit/debit card)
- Paysafecard (UKash)
Note: you can only register a credit/debit card once. Once it has been registered, it can then be selected as the preferred method of choice for withdrawals.
Should I select real money web-browser play or the official app?
Ultimately, choosing whether you want to install an app or play via your browser comes down to personal choice. We have tested both modes, and find it hard to definitively say one is better than the other. Both options provide very efficient ways to play iPhone pokies, and both hold advantages over the other – instant play and the creation of Web apps take up very little, if any, memory space; while the convenience of dedicated software on your device (the RVC app) means as long as you have a data connection, games are already pre-loaded and ready to go.
Which ever mode you decide to go with, know that for the Royal Vegas app, it’s browser play counterpart and the full desktop site, you only need to register once, and you can then use the same username and password to access your account across any medium and via either downloaded or browser play mode. The same goes for all our other suggested sites; once you’ve signed up, your account information and funds will always be available when you log in at any location, and at any time.
As technology continually improves, the gap between native (market) apps and instant play which uses browser formatting such as HTML5, Flash, Java and Silverlight is becoming smaller and smaller, so you will get a very similar gaming experience with either option.
