Mobile Pokies or Online Pokies: Is there a Difference?
So the first question that many people ask is “what’s the difference between online pokies and mobile pokies?” Remember, the word “pokies” just means “slots.” Don’t let that throw you off. Online pokies could be any slot game that can be found online anywhere. Online pokies can be ones that need to be downloaded or even slots that can be played through flash technology live on the Internet. On the other and, mobile pokies refers specifically to slot games that can be played on a cell phone or other portable device such as an i-touch or Blackberry. Yes, all mobile pokies are by definition also online pokies. While more and more games are coming out that have a mobile version, there are still far more online pokies than there are mobile pokies.
