Gaming demands that your tablet has a certain set of characteristics, and many of 2013’s best tablets have these in abundance.
Games for portable devices aren’t generally hugely demanding, with apps like the online casino, puzzles, side scrollers and even arcade style games mainly being controlled by swipes and touchscreen gestures. Nevertheless, you do need a good operating system, a responsive interface, a large amount of RAM, big storage capacity, and a quick processor. Without these attributes your games could slow down, lag, become unplayable, or even crash.
The iPad4 will naturally be most people’s choice of gaming machine with the new A6X processor being up to twice as fast as the previous A5. Many games designed for Apple devices are designed with the hardware characteristics in mind so it’s hard for the lesser Android tablets to emulate gaming performance anywhere near iPad4 standard.
The best Android based tablets can comfortably compete with their Apple rivals, with names like Xperia Tablet Z, the Google Nexus 10 and the Google Nexus 7 all gaining great reviews.
A lot of people seem to think that tablets that come in at around the 7 inch mark are preferable in the modern market – this is visible due to the success of the iPad Mini and the new Nexus 7. You have ample screen size, maximum portability, and it would appear that your gaming experience doesn’t really suffer for the sake of a couple of inches.
With the online casino, puzzle games and simple physics games, a smaller screen may even lend itself to the neatly packaged gaming experience – screen size will always be subjective. Perhaps rather than becoming fixated on screen size, gamers should be more concerned with storage (and the potential for Micro SD chips), RAM and processor speed.
Tablets like the Toshiba Excite Pro, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the Sony Xperia Z all excel in these areas. If you would like a proof, try some of these casino games yourself, visit http://www.luckynuggetcasino.com/online-slots to play the most popular casino games such as slots, poker or blackjack.
