How to play baccarat on Android phones

For everyone who has entered the 21st century, playing mobile casino games is no longer the way of the future and playing baccarat on our android smartphones is no exception – it’s easy, fast and widespread.

Baccarat was derived from the Italian language and Android before being trademarked came from Science Fiction and since the two have the skill of embellishment in common we think this is a match made in heaven.

Although software developers have not yet brought out a tonne of mobile compatible baccarat titles as they have with slots, we have found a software developer which does available at one of our favourite online casinos, along with ways to get around the mobile platform limits.

Benefits of playing baccarat on your Android device

Playing on your Android smartphone or tablet means you can play anywhere you have a solid Internet connection. Even if you have never played baccarat before or have never even been in a brick and mortar casino you can still learn the basics on your Android device.

Although there aren’t many titles available just yet for mobile use, it is very popular in brick and mortar casinos as it one game where you aren’t playing against the house. This is why we believe it won’t be long before software developers create an abundance of titles for mobile use.

In baccarat, players are required to choose whether the player’s hand or the banker’s hand will win. You can also choose if it will be a tie. Which ever you choose you are required to place a wager on which can be done via Android devices at mobile compatible online casinos and when you play it on your Android smartphone or tablet you will usually play with just one deck of cards like standard online baccarat games. All of the picture cards and cards valued 10 are worth zero, while the Aces equal one, and the rest of cards equal their face value.

Many of our recommended online casinos offer instructions or ebooks for players to learn how to play which can all be accessed via your Android smartphone or tablet.

Android mobile baccarat for AUD real money

Playing with real AUD money on Android devices isn’t new. However, playing Baccarat isn’t as common and still isn’t available on the Royal Vegas native app which is downloaded from your app provider and is the only native market app available for Australians who gamble on mobile.

Each online casino we recommend offers a mobile platform accessed via your smartphone or tablet’s mobile browser so you can explore their mobile catalogue. However, software providers haven’t prioritised baccarat as highly as blackjack and slots and therefore it isn’t as common in terms of mobile compatibility. However, we have found a software provider, Play’n Go to be specific which is a software developer devoted 100% to making mobile compatible casino games, so we can play baccarat on our Android smartphones and tablets.

This software developer has been snapped up fast by Thrills online casino, offering mobile compatible baccarat option for Android devices. Additionally, we do know for a fact software developers are always working on new games so we will update you when mobile baccarat games are available at more mobile casino to play on your Android device, which we think won’t be long at all. For the time being Android users may actually have another way of playing baccarat on their portable devices if they prefer another of our recommended online casinos.

Desktop casino on Android portable devices

One thing Android devices have over Apple devices, regardless of what team you are on, is that they can use Adobe Flash unlike Apple mobile devices. This means it may be possible to play baccarat on your mobile this way. However, there have been many reviews and claims that although Android does ship Flash, it doesn’t necessarily mean all Flash content is compatible with Android smartphones and tablets. Regardless, we will let you in on our secret so you can try it out for yourself.

You will need to download Google Chrome from Google Play app store if you don’t already have it installed, as well as the app Adobe Air (this may help with compatibility issues). Then click on our links to your chosen reputable online casino. From here, you need to tap on the three vertical dots and then on ‘Request desktop site’.

Your mobile casino will then convert to the desktop version and you will be able to see the entire catalogue including all of the baccarat titles available. Click on your preferred baccarat title and see if it will work with your Android device.

Do I need to download software to play?

There is no software required to access the mobile compatible online casino via your Android device. However, there is if you want to create a web app for easier access via your Web browser.

While there aren’t many native apps available to Australian’s to play casino games on their smartphone or tablets due to Australian law, this doesn’t hinder baccarat players too much as there aren’t many mobile compatible baccarat titles available. If you do want to access baccarat via your home screen, we recommend creating a web app for your Android device. This can be done by clicking on the link to Thrills casino from here via your browser for Android, which is usually Google Chrome. Scroll down to table games and click on the title ‘mini baccarat’ (the only baccarat title available from the selection of mobile games). You will then be able to click on the add to home screen option available from Chrome only for Android devices.

An icon will then appear on your home screen and you can quickly and easily access the baccarat title via your mobile device, provided you have a solid Internet or 3G/4G mobile data connection.

Can I play live dealer baccarat on my android device?

Although standard baccarat titles aren’t as common on mobile devices as other online casino games, there are still live dealer baccarat variants which can be played on our Android devices. For example, Royal Vegas offers an Android compatible live dealer baccarat title. All you have to do is download Adobe Air first, change your settings to allow downloads from unknown sources (for only this download as it is a safe download, but we recommend to change the settings back once you have finished) and then login with your pre-existing details or sign up to access the live dealer baccarat title. Signing up is also easy on your Android device just tap sign up and tap in your details using the Android touch screen on your smartphone or mobile.

Safe deposits on Android mobile for baccarat

Although you are playing on a smaller more portable version of a desktop it does not mean the security of the casino’s transactions are compromised. Players can make all the standard deposit options via their Android device including credit and debit cards for quick payments on the go, pre-paid services if you aren’t comfortable entering personal and financial information via your Android device, e-wallets for extra bonuses at some of our online casinos, and even bank transfers for higher limits but these do take longer to process.

All of our mobile casinos accessed via your Android device still use the same data encryption technology that they use on their desktop version that keeps your transactions safe and secure.
