It’s not easy these days to find a good game you can play on any given platform. You usually have to choose between PC or mobile and then you have to choose between Android, iOS, Nokia etc. However, when you choose to play with the big guns, you get the best of all worlds.
Take Winnings.com for example, because they offer games which are based on html5, they manage to operate on all platforms, both web and mobile and on most mobile devices. As a user you don’t have to download anything to your device. You open an account on their server and can access it easily through any device. In Winnings.com you’ll find games of luck and some nice skill games. Both can be played for free or for real money.
But not all game providers will allow you such diversity. Most prefer to focus of specific platforms in order to save in expenses. They first launch on one platform, run a pilot of it and if it goes well they go on with the next platform. Since these games are supposed to be installed in your device they have to program the game separately per device and OS. So it makes sense they prefer to take it one at a time.
For this reason, playing on a server side platform will always give you the best value for your time. It also consumes fewer resources from your device. The two of resources used are the browser’s framework and your upload allocation. This is why it’s recommended to play these games while you’re on WiFi.
