I've just now finished testing all of the iPad Mini casino games from the leading providers, and I'm pleased to announce they all work perfectly.
It was always assumed that the current games available for the 3 full sized iPads would work. An unofficial Apple technical spokesperson assured me that "If it currently works on iPad, then it will work on iPad Mini".
All very well from a technical stand point, but what would they actually look like? It does after all have a smaller screen. Though not likely to make a significant impact, I had to be sure. If only so I could use the same game screen shots on the iPad Mini Casino guide on ipadcasinogames.net
So I tested all of the iPad casino games developed by Microgaming, Playtech, Probability and Intouch on my iPad Mini.
All good. Fill ya boots!
The new device from Apple is 7.87 inches tall and 5.3 inches wide. It weights just 0.68 punds (308g) for the wi-fi only version. The wi-fi & cellular version weighs in at 0.69 punds (312g).
It's the screen that I'm most interested in. It's the screen stats that determine whether the current iPad casino games available will work on the iPad Mini at launch.
The screen is a 7.9-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi-Touch display with IPS technology. It has 1024x768 resolution at 163 pixels per inch (ppi) and has a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
All of this means that the majority of current casino games for the larger iPad will scale perfectly on the new device.
I'll be testing each of the games on November 2nd, and will provide a complete list later that day.
The iPad Mini is available on November 2nd 2012 (pre-orders being taken from October 26th). The prices start at £269 ($329) for the 16gb wi-fi version. Compare all the iPads here.
Plazawin have launched 4 new iPad scratch card games including Iron Man 2, Rocky, The Pink Panther and Chicago Streets.
Well worth a look. Thoroughly fun. Cards start at just 10p/10c. They call also be played for fun in practice mode.

AllSlots Mobile Casino have launched 5 new iPad poker games of the Video Poker variety.
On August 6th 2012, to compliment their 'Jacks or Better' poker game. AllSlots added:
- Aces & Faces Poker
- Aces & Eights Poker
- Deuces Wild Poker
- Bonus Deuces Wild Poker
- Double Double Bonus Poker
All are based on classic Video Poker, but each with a neat twist. My personal favourite is 'Bonus Deuces Wild' on which all the deuces (two) are wild cards and there are extra enhanced payouts for 4-of-a-kind and 5-of-kind combinations.
AllSlots currently offer new players offer €5/£5/$5 FREE to try them out. (No payment details required). Claim your FREE €5/£5/$5.
Microgaming, a provider of "Real Money" iPad casino games to many iPad Casino Operators, has retired a number of iPad casino games from their portfolio.
Two Instant Win games, a Virtual Horse Racing game and two Progressive Jackpot Slots have not been rolled out on their new HD html5 iPad Casino Platform that is used by a number of iPad Casinos including AllSlots and JackPotCity.
In the case of Mega Moolah, one of their most popular Progressive Jackpot Slots game on iPad, it's a temporary retirement. I've been assured that it will be made available for iPad players in the near future. September or October 2012 seems to be the target.
The other iPad games currently retired are:
- Major Millions Progressive Jackpot Slots.
- Royal Derby Virtual Horse Racing.
- Dragons Fortune Instant Win game.
- Bingo Bonanza Instant Win game.
Whether any of these will return in the future is unclear.
