Blackberry Roulette Apps
With the BlackBerry Z10 on the way in June 2013, roulette gamblers who own BlackBerries will want to know how to gamble for real money with their new devices. Though these devices aren't as widespread as they were back in 2006, when the word "Crackberry" was Webster's Dictionary Word of the Year, Blackberry products are still considered one of the top four major brands, along with Android phones, iPhones, and Windows Mobile phones. Mobile gamers can expect that most websites which handle wifi gaming have apps for these four mobile operating systems. Dedicated users of the BlackBerry OS can use all gadgets powered by the company, including the famous smart phone and the less famous Playbook tablet computer.
Real Money Roulette on a Blackberry
People who want to play roulette for real money need to go to a mobile casino (not an online casino) and download the proper BlackBerry app. These should be available on the homepage of the site in question, though there's a chance a you'll need to go to a downloads, apps, or applications page to find what you're searching for. In any cases, the specific application makes you mobile devices compatible with the site's software package.
Once you've downloaded the app, you'll need to register an account. All this requires is the player to give their first and last name, address, email address, and other basic information. Gamblers can use the small amount of money from a no-download bonus to gamble, if they want, but most players will end up depositing money into their account. If you do this, most websites are going to offer a welcome or deposit bonus, which matches the money you put into the account dollar-for-dollar (up to a certain amount). At this point, real betting starts to happen.
Choosing a Blackberry Casino
The choice in a mobile gaming casino is going to be influenced by where you live. If you live in the United Kingdom, 39 legitimate mobile casinos are available for players at the moment (according to Casino City Times). Residents of the United States have 6 options, at present. By way of comparison, people in Canada have 32 options, gamblers in Australia have 30 options, and people in South Africa have their selections among 27 choices. People living in certain locations around the globe have a much more limited games selection.
USA Blackberry Casino Players
As you can tell, players from the United States have, by far, the most limited selection. If you decide you don't like an available mobile casino and you live in the USA, you run out of options real quick. Even a few of those online casinos which advertise themselves as accepting Americans make me question them, since one of them purports to use Microgaming software and another uses NetEnt technology. The one which uses Microgaming also uses Spin3, a leading provider for wifi casinos, so this might be the tech for US players. Other software providers to look for are Probability Plc and iGaming2go. One or two of the American-friendly casinos use proprietary software, which means the software is designed and owned by the site itself.
Know the jurisdictions to search for gaming in is important, too. A couple of the sites I found are licensed in Gibraltar, while two more are licensed in Malta. These are common jurisdictions for the regulation of gaming sites, so these should arouse no suspicion. What does arouse suspicion are the two websites which appear to have no licensing authority overseeing them. Under any circumstances, I recommend you avoid a gambling website which can't produce who licenses its game. If a person can't be troubled to get the regulatory authorities to give them approval, that's a sign this is a fly-by-night operation with little legitimacy. These are people who can't get a license from a world full of government agencies eager to license products.
American or European Roulette
People completely new to gambling don't have to learn a lot of intricate theories when playing roulette, but they do need to know which version of the game to select. This often comes down to one of two choices: the American or European versions. American or double-zero roulette has 38 number pockets, including 1 through 36, 0, and 00. European or single-zero roulette has 37 number pockets, with only the 1 through 36 and the 0 pocket. Since the zero pockets are automatic losses on most roulette bets, always select the European variant to play. For every $100 wagered, you expect to lose $2.70 when playing the European game and $5.26 when playing the American or Las Vegas game. No choice exists. Some casinos offer a third version of the game, usually called French roulette in online gaming, which offers announced or called bets. This game includes interesting alternate betting opportunities, but the odds are no different than the European bet.
The latest operating system is BlackBerry OS 10, which is designed for the latest Z10 and Q10 models. The OS 7 is still compatible with all mobile casinos, so your Curve 9310/9320, Curve 9360, Torch 9180, and Torch 9850/9860 are going to work with the websites, too. As newer gaming apps are designed, the earliest of these might fall off the list, but that's years from now.
