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.
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.
