Progressive web apps (PWA) are the most exciting casino technology since mobile gambling. PWA casinos allow fast, secure & user-friendly access to casino games on Windows, Android and Apple iOS across all devices - without the need for an app store.
The online casino industry is constantly evolving and expanding, making use of the latest technologies to ensure a safer, faster and more enjoyable online gambling experience regardless of when and where you want to play.
With high-resolution displays, global internet access and the advancements in mobile technology the only hindrances are in the development silos caused by companies looking to secure their customers. In particular the ongoing war between Windows, Android and Apple iOS for space on your devices and of course wallet-share.
For years users have been caught in the limbo between the top three operating systems, that is until the recent development of Progressive Web Applications (PWA), a system that ignores the platform and focuses solely on your entertainment.
What is a PWA online casino?
A PWA casino is one that has been built using this amazing new system that combines all the best web technologies into a single new coding language. This new language allows for the development of casino games which be played on any device, regardless of whether it uses the Apple, Windows or Android operating system.
PWA casinos are easy to install on any device without the need for a 3rd party app store. Now your favourite online casino can offer a mobile-ready version of their casino for you to install directly from their website.
It also allows for seamless switching between your Android phone, your Apple MacBook and your Windows computer without experiencing a loss in the number of games, sound quality, visual fidelity and overall casino features.
Best of all any updates the casino runs on their website will now be available for you to enjoy across all devices and operating systems at once.
When it comes to playing at a PWA casino it is important to consider Google’s acronym for describing Progressive Web App technology, FIRE:
“You can think of a PWA as a web app that provides first-class user experience, and that truly earns a place on the user's home screen. The acronym "FIRE", standing for Fast, Integrated, Reliable, and Engaging, sums up all the attributes to think about when building a PWA.”
As a casino fan, these benefits translate directly into your online gambling experience. When it comes to spending your money online, the knowledge that the casino you’re playing with promises a fast, secure, trustworthy experience creates peace of mind and allows you to relax and enjoy yourself.
Progressive Web App WOW Factor
PWA’s are installable, can be linked to from the casino site directly, do not rely on 3rd party networks to be up and running, can be ranked on search engines like Google, can be progressively updated and enhanced over time, allow for push notifications and are responsive so they work on desktop and mobile.
In short Progressive Web App, casinos could be the most exciting advancement in online gambling technology since the big jump from desktop to mobile.
