The easiest way to access your favourite casino games whilst travelling is to find an online casino that offers a great mobile casino experience. The advantages of playing pokies on your mobile is tremendous for New Zealanders that travel a lot as they are able to access the casino from almost anywhere in the world.
Social Pokies vs Real Money Casinos
The decision when choosing between social free casino games and real money casino casino games is often dictated by the country you may be visiting. We always advise people to check the local laws before trying to play at their NZ online casino in a foreign country. Customers will frequently be blocked from accessing a casino when travelling abroad which leaves social free money casinos as the only option.
Social casino games are an ok alternative if you are looking to pass some time but they don’t offer you the same thrill and excitement that is on offer when you have an opportunity to win real money and keep what you win.
Accessing a New Zealand Casino from another Country
It is important to check the local laws before attempting the trick we are going to suggest to you. The majority of online casinos will block players from accessing their accounts whilst traveling to a country that the casino does not hold a license in. This blocking can often be overcome by using a VPN. It is no recommended to create a new account on a VPN as this will often be picked up by the casino’s fraud team and cause your account to be locked.
If you are looking for more information regarding how VPNs work you can read the following Wikipedia article , PC Mag also has an excellent article explaining some of the benefits of using a VPN which can be found here.
Mobile Casino Apps
The vast majority of casino apps in the google play and and iTunes stores only offer social casino games which means that if you want to play for real money you will need to play on the actual casino website. This is only a slight inconvenience when playing in New Zealand but can become far more difficult when travelling and not having access to data and potentially being blocked from your account in the country you are visiting.
The first trick you can easy use is that most international flights out of New Zealand now offer on board wifi which means you can still access you favourite mobile casino websites whilst flying abroad.
The second problem requires you to use VPN software to access the casino with can be a daunting task for many of us that are not technical. There are a number of great products on Amazon that can help simplify the process though. The key is to look for a VPN travel router that comes with VPN software integrated and allows you to simply add a local sim card when traveling. This also protects you from potentially dangerous public wifi networks.
