Playing casino games on smartwatches is an activity for the future. The first generation of smartwatches was launched only in 2015. Today smartwatch gaming is at best like what mobile gaming was a decade ago.
Smartwatches are being classified as wearable devices as compared to mobile devices. The other wearable devices are smartglasses. Smartwatches offer all the advantages of mobile gaming. You can wager on the go, from wherever you are. They offer some additional advantages as well. These are attached to your body so you do not risk dropping or losing them. For example, you might leave your mobile phone at a friend’s place by mistake but you cannot leave your smartwatch. It offers greater privacy. People sitting in the bus next to you are less likely to know that you are gambling. As of now, the smartwatch screens are ad free.Apple has launched its smartwatch based on its own iOS operating systems. Android and Windows also have launched smartwatch operating systems that are used by device manufacturers. As of now only a few Microgaming online casinos offer a couple of online pokies on smartwatch platforms. One of them is Thunderstruck, which may well be voted as the most popular Microgaming title ever. The other is the branded online pokie The Dark Knight Rises.
As of now the limitations of playing casino games on smartwatches far outweigh the advantages. Smartwatches that support gaming are not stand alone devices. They have to be hosted by smartphones or tablets. So you will anyway need your smartphone with you. All the support functions to real money gaming will have to be carried out from your mobile phone. This includes signing up at the casino and making deposits and withdrawals.
There are practically no games as of now for smartwatch real money gaming. But this will improve. Microgaming has made a start and other Australian casino software providers will follow suit. If you recall, mobile gaming also started with a handful of casino games. The big issue is the screen size. It is so small that one wonders what one will be able to see on it. The entire screen is smaller than one online pokie symbol on a desktop casino. Mobile gaming bucked the odds given to it ten years ago, so may be smartwatch gaming also will.
