Why you should use only iOS for online gaming

The business competition between Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android is here to stay for a long time.

Longtime customers of either (or both) iOS and Android know the different pros and cons that each mobile system offers. But if you’re an avid sports bettor or online casino player, you should carefully look into the benefits of choosing iOS.

Sports betting and online casino games are very easy to access through iPhones. The top sportsbooks are available for simple download through the Apple Store. And it’s super easy to place wagers and play games through a simple tap.

But there are several advantages with the iOS compared to the Android if you’re to use a phone for top sportsbooks such as BetMGM, Caesars, PokerStars, DraftKings, and BetRivers in states with legalized gambling such as Pennsylvania. These online casinos in PA are available for your fun time directly on your device.

Customers interested in placing bets through Pennsylvania sportsbooks should also know that the apps offer secured and private payment services.

Here’s a dive into the key reasons for using iOS for online gaming and eSports.

iOS over Android

Security and protection of personal data is a key priority. That said, it’s been proven aplenty in the past that iOS offers better security/protection.

iOS has a stronger security envelope, so if you’re especially concerned about having your personal information and data kept private, iOS is the safer option.

So if you’re playing poker, slots, blackjack, roulette, or other favorite games, you’ll definitely want a system that offers state-of-the-art security measures.

As well, sportsbooks frequently released their apps to the Apple Store first. You can be the first of the line for new games and challenges.

The rise of sports betting

Sports Betting began to take off in May 2018, following a historic ruling from the Supreme Court. Previously, sports betting was prohibited in most parts of the nation under the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), which was signed in October 1992. The state of Nevada was a notable exception from the PASPA.

But in May 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that the PASPA was a violation of America’s Tenth Amendment. The groundbreaking ruling allowed each state to legalize online and in-person sports betting.

After the ruling, the states of Delaware, New Jersey, and Mississippi moved quickly towards launching sports betting platforms. Here we are almost a half-decade later, and more than 30 states have since launched a form of sports gambling, with the state of Massachusetts likely to join the club soon.

Sports betting has grown rapidly worldwide, to the point where professional sports leagues and teams have wasted little time signing partnership deals with top sportsbooks. This is largely why you see so many sportsbook/gambling advertisements on TV and at sporting venues.
