December 9, 2014 10:59 am

Gaming is one of those things that has grown exponentially over the last thirty years. There are very few houses that don’t have some kind of console such as an Xbox or PlayStation. However, in the last 5 years, nothing has grown nearly as fast as the online gaming industry on smartphones. It used to be that your phone came with a classic black and white game such as “Snake” or if you were very lucky, “Tetris”. Now there are simply thousands of different games, some of which have multi-million pound companies backing them. This is a list of our top 3 online games for smartphones:

Clash of Clans:

Clash of Clans is one of the most popular smartphone games of all time grossing almost one billion dollars in 2013 with no sign of decline for 2014. The game comprises of players building their own villages where they can upgrade buildings and troops. They are then able to attack other players and are susceptible to attacks themselves. The real genius of the game is that, like most MMORPGs, players come together into ‘clans’ allowing teamwork and adding a social aspect to the game. Players can donate troops to other players’ clan castles and newly introduced this year is the ‘clan war’ aspect where entire clans fight against other clans requiring serious group coordination and organisation. The game makes money through allowing players to buy “gems” in order to speed up their upgrades and troop building.

Online Smartphone Casinos:

Another type of smartphone online gaming that has really taken off is casino gaming. At the forefront of these companies is Casino.com which offers users the chance to play slots, roulette and blackjack on their mobile phones. This has naturally been a huge success as many online gamblers love the new availability to play their favourite games on the move and savour the ease in which they can access these games through a simple app on their smartphone. Casino.com has been especially praised for the unique way in which it allows users to play their favourite games without any hassle or delay. A top tip for those interested in signing up is to make sure you research what promotions they currently have to ensure you get the best deal upon registration.

Candy Crush

Candy Crush has been around for a little while now, but only recently has it entered into the category of “online gaming”. You just need to walk onto the London tube or a bus to see someone playing the popular puzzle game and so it is no surprise that developers have tried to make the game have a more social element. For a while they have had a “wheel of fortune” to give players an extra chance at completing a level with a new piece of candy but now players can also send each other lives on an unlimited basis. Once you have connected with your contacts who are also playing the game, they can help you get more lives through a request system or even help you get to a new episode so that you don’t have to wait for the “tooth fairy”. These new additions have certainly enabled people to stay interested in the game.
