All modern smartphones and tablets are able to access and play high-quality mobile blackjack games. If you own an Android-powered device, iPhone, iPad, Samsung or Windows Phone, you can play 21 for real money online simply by visiting your preferred casino site in your mobile’s in-built Web browser.
Only international players can follow this advice. Australians cannot legally play blackjack on their mobile devices due to the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016.
Best mobile blackjack sites for Australians
As mentioned above, Australians cannot legally play blackjack online anymore. This is due to legislation changes which prohibit operators from accepting Australians. International players, depending on your jurisdiction, can however.
The following online casinos all offer fully-fledged mobile Web browser sites which can be accessed by tapping on any of our app icons or internal links directly from your mobile or tablet device. These mobile sites offer hundreds of innovative casino games, with several unique blackjack games.
Access any of these links from your portable device, register an account (details such as username, password, date of birth, email and currency), and you’ll gain access to a wide variety of European and American blackjack games which can be played instantly within your mobile browser (no downloads required).
Blackjack Web apps
A Web app is an extension of a mobile browser site which allows the user to conveniently access the desired content direct from his or her home screen, just as he or she would with a native/market application.
The Web application can be easily created by accessing any mobile casino site
like www.RoyalVegasCasino.com from your device, and then navigating to your in-browser settings to find the ‘add to home screen’ option. You’ll then be able to name your newly created casino Web app which will then pop up on your home screen.
Rather than entering your Web browser each time and typing in the URL address to arrive at your desired mobile casino site and subsequent blackjack title, the Web app allows you to bypass this process, taking you directly to the casino lobby from your home screen. Some users will even be able to enter their desired blackjack game from their Web browser, and create a specific blackjack Web application from there, for that game (utilising the same method).
The Web app differs to a traditional market app as it does not require any installations, but rather uses a common Web browser to process its visual and audio content (similar to how a YouTube video is processed on a mobile device). The Web app is compatible with all different operating systems, and takes up little, if any, space on your device. Technology such as HTML5, Java and Flash formatting is used to support the application.
Real money native applications to play 21
Currently, Royal Vegas Casino is the only gambling platform to offer a genuine native app which can be installed via the App Store or Google Play to your smartphone or tablet. It is branded Regal Vegas Casino (for marketing purposes) and is legally accessible to all Australians. Once installed, you gain access to both a free play and real money interface where you can enjoy several distinct variants of mobile blackjack.
Smartphone and tablet blackjack games
Some blackjack games available on mobile phones and tablets include:
- Classic Blackjack Gold
- Blackjack Multihand
- American Blackjack
- European Blackjack
- Atlantic City Blackjack Gold
- Vegas Single Deck Blackjack Gold
- Vegas Strip Blackjack
- Vegas Downtown Blackjack Gold
- Premier Blackjack
Each of these blackjack titles offer slight variations of rules and how the game is played, with all allowing for minimum wagers per hand as low as $1 and maximum wagers per hand as high as $1000 (with some casinos allowing for even higher maximum if personally requested by high roller players).

How to safely play blackjack with real money
When you access any of the casino sites and/or their Web and native apps directly from your mobile or tablet device, you’ll be able to work through a simple and secure deposit and withdrawal system when you wish to fund your casino account to play blackjack and when you wish to take out any winnings.
After registering an account, you can navigate to the mobile banking section, which may be titled ‘banking’, ‘cashier’ or simply ‘deposit’ or ‘withdrawal’. Access this section from the main casino menu, which is accessible from the main mobile casino lobby.
You’ll then be asked to choose your preferred deposit method to fund your account. Options include: MasterCard and Visa credit and debit cards, e-wallets such as Neteller and Skrill, pre-paid cards and vouchers such as Ukash and PaySafeCard, and direct bank/wire transfer systems such as POLi and Citadel Direct.
All financial transactions are protected with a minimum of 128-bit Secure Socket Layer digital encryption technology, and all the casinos we ever recommend are licensed and registered by their jurisdiction’s gaming commission, and are monitored closely by independent testing agencies such as eCOGRA (eCommerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance) which ensure player and gaming fairness.
