Whether you play console type massive multiplayer games, download games apps or play online casino games for real money, there is no doubt which is the top tablet to play them on. By a huge margin the top gaming tablet is the Apple iPad Air, and it beats all the opposition in every way apart from price. At around £750 it is far from cheap, especially when an entry level Android table can be bought for around £150. However, if you can afford it then get it’, it’s worth every penny.

The iPad Air runs an Apple A6X 1.4 GHz dual-core system on chip (SoC) based microprocessor and quad core graphic processor and uses the iOS 7 operating system. It has a maximum storage capacity of 128 GB and the screen resolution is 2,048 × 1,536 pixels. For when you want to do things other than play games, there is a 1080p HD camera whish also records full HD video. Battery life is reasonably good too. You can play games online for around 10 hours between charges, and on standby the battery will last around a month, but there is little point in buying one if a one month standby is important to you, better to use it and lose it.

If that price tag is a little on the high side, then you might wish to consider an iPad mini. In fact 6 out of 10 iPads that are sold are iPad minis. Naturally it is a very different device with a much smaller display, but at £150 it cost around a third as much. Another cheaper tablet to consider is the Amazon Kindle Fire or the Google Nexus 7, these tablets are very popular with the budget minded. You can play all the Android games on it, and at prices starting at £160 it is a bargain.
