With the launch of the iPhone 6 and iOS 8, Apple has emerged as arguably the leading mobile gaming platform. Featuring the enhanced Graphics Engine metal and a higher quality of audio output, there are a host of console-inspired and themed slot games that are now particularly enjoyable on the Apple platform. The latter provide a particularly interesting talking point, as they continue to generate a considerably high turnover and earn an increasingly avid cult following among gamers.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at three of the best slot machine and online casino games available through the Apple Platform.

Pharaoh’s Fortune Slot
A five reel, 20 payline slot machine, this is one of the most popular on the market, while it also features a host of bonus rounds, free spins and even an immersive Egyptian theme. It offers an incredibly fun and exciting experience, while it also delivers exceptional pay-outs and an enhanced probability of winning. It is available on both the iPad and the iPhone, so that users of both devices can download the app and enjoy their favourite slot while on the go.

Mega Moolah
For fans of progressive jackpots (where the total prize fund grows for every game that it remains unclaimed), the Mega Moolah slot machine game is the one for you. An African-inspired slot game with five reels and a grand total of 25 paylines, the use of colour, sound and exciting characters makes this a roller-coaster gaming experience. A four-tiered jackpot structure also gives you the unique opportunity to win one of 4 jackpots with every spin, while there are a number of multiplier bonuses to keep opportunistic players interested.

DoubleDown Casino
This iOS 8 app is relatively new to the market, and despite this it has already obtained a cult following and millions of downloads from iTunes. Linked to your Facebook account, your earnings can be easily transferred and distributed as you play. The game is also unique in that it offers seven distinct themes from which to choose from, enabling players to diversify their experience and boost their earnings. In addition to this, this application can also be downloaded for free while you can also access a generous welcome package and multiple bonus options.
