Mac Casino Apps Compared

Apple Macs may be one of the 'coolest' personal computers, but when it comes to Mac casino apps, they're no match for their Windows rivals. The reason is that only a handful of online casino software vendors ever developed online casino games for Macs (typically in Flash or Java), because most concentrated on the larger, more financially viable PC market.

Today, however, thanks to the growing popularity of multi-platform browser-based instant play HTML5 casino games, players in the UK can play and enjoy the same games whether they own a Mac, PC or Linux machine. That said, there are hundreds of casino apps for Macs available to download on the Mac App Store, although the majority are for play money.

Which Apple Macs are Best for Casino Apps?

With regards to computers and games, the latest software (games) typically runs the best on the latest hardware (Mac). This means as long as you own a fairly new Apple Mac (less than 5 years old) with a good size memory that can download Apple's iOS updates, you can play the latest HTML5 casino games. Here are Apple's latest iMac offerings:

Types of Mac Online Casino Apps

Of the types of Mac online casino apps or, more accurately, casino games, the most common are highlighted below:

Real Money Casino Mac Apps

As already highlighted, these are not an option for UK Residents. What is an option, however, are a plethora of multiple browser-based instant play HTML5 casino games available on the many casinos featured on this site.

Instant Play HTML5 Mac Casino Games

To play browser-based HTML5 instant play casino games, just sign up for a real money account at any of our recommended Mac-friendly online casinos. Next, deposit using any of the credit card, ewallet, bank transfer or pre-paid card options available. Then visit the casino games lobby, and pick and choose games to play.

Being HTML5 games, they'll pop up in your respective internet browser - no download necessary. While the majority of UK Residents online casinos we promote offer both play and real money HTML5 games, we suggest you take 21Prive Casino, Go Wild Casino or GDay Casino for a spin, three of our most popular UK Mac casinos.

Mac App Store Free Apps with In-App Purchases

These games are available for free or a nominal fee, and typically offer in-app purchases for extra levels and/or credits. While most are fun and exciting to play, none will pay you out. This is why if you want to win big cash, any of our featured instant play online casino HTML 5 games are your best way forward.

Branded Free Play Games from Mac App Store

These are also 'play money' games, except they mirror their real money online and land casino counterparts. This means that if you desire, you can seek out their real cash counterparts at your favourite land casino or online casino site. Be on the lookout for casino games from top developers such as Aristocrat, SG and IGT on the App Store.
