For some Canadian players, placing real money wagers on a laptop or desktop will offer more than enough excitement. Others, however, will inevitably get curious about the rapidly growing industry that is mobile slots!
The first mobile slot machines emerged a few years ago, giving us more than enough time to assess the scene, find the best slot machine mobile games and online casino sites for mobile users. We'll show you all of that on this page, as well as how to:
- Learn how mobile slot machine games differ from playing on a computer
- Stay safe on the web when making deposits and playing mobile slots
- Discover all of the top smartphone online casino sites for Canadian players
Whether you're looking to play on BlackBerry, Windows Phone, iPhone or iPad, you'll find that there's an online casino out there somewhere that uses Flash or HTML5 to bring their experience to mobile players.
We should note right off the bat that the selection of mobile slot machines available doesn't rival what you'll find on a laptop or desktop – and it's not even close! – but you should still be able to find a familiar title you enjoy or a new one that you want to try.
It has to be said that, as fun as they might be, standard real money online slots don't bear much resemblance to traditional video slots in an offline casino – using a mouse and keyboard isn't something you'll typically be doing in a bricks and mortar gambling setting!
It's a different story when we talk about mobile slot machine games, however, as using a touchscreen absolutely mimics the mechanics of an offline video slot. In this respect it could be said that, when it comes to slot machines, mobile versions on iOS, Samsung, Android etc. are actually the more faithful representations.
Another huge advantage of mobile slot machines is that you can take them, within reason, absolutely anywhere. Whether you're killing time on the bus, or enjoying some real cash action on your lunch break at work, smartphone/tablet real cash gaming opens up a lot of doors to players that would previously have been closed.

We're not going to list every single smartphone and tablet that you can use for mobile slot machines here, simply because exactly which mobile devices you can use at a Canadian mobile casino varies from site to site. Plus it would take forever!
We will say that you should have no problem playing slots online using the following devices, as long as they're not completely ancient and have the most recent operating system etc. for 2017 installed:
Hopefully you can spot at least one mobile device that you have in the list above but, even if you don't, it's always worth visiting one of the top sites we recommend on the off chance you can use it to play mobile slots there anyway!
We've spent years rating and reviewing online casino sites, including mobile slot machine games, based on criteria like the software they use, the range of games the offer and how easy to use their site is. To get the best slot machines (mobile or laptop/desktop) experience possible, we recommend that you visit one of the sites we suggest on this page.
How do online slots work on mobile?
Although you might occasionally find dedicated apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone etc., it's more likely that an online casino will direct you to a responsive version of their site that adjusts its size and appearance automatically depending on the mobile device you're using.
How do I get started on my device?
Easily! All you need to do is navigate your way to an online slots site – you'll see some of our top choices on this page – and either sign in with your existing account or, if you've never played there before, create a new account and claim your C$ welcome bonus.
Is it better to play on a site or on an app?
This is just a matter of personal taste. Some players like to have their favourite casino apps lined up on their home screen (although you can actually add shortcuts to sites on some devices in a similar way) while others enjoy the hassle-free approach of sites being updated and debugged automatically without any effort on their part.
Do players get a bonus on mobile?
Yes, players can still access a real money CAD welcome bonus when playing slots online using a mobile.
Which is Canada's top casino for mobile & tablet play?
There's no one single top casino for Canadian players, as what you see as the best will depend on what you want to get out of playing there, but we highly recommend all of the sites on this page.
Will the device I'm using make a difference?
It may affect which games you can access and the layout of those games that you can, but the experience across different mobile devices is usually pretty similar in 2017.
Will slots games use a lot of my data?
If you're playing a graphically intensive game for a long time, then it's possible that you'll use quite a bit of data. We recommend digging into your phone's settings and making a note of how much data you're using during a typical slot machines mobile gaming session.
Are the games safe to play?
As long as you're playing with a safe, honest casino then they're absolutely safe!
