SuperCasino iPhoneAn iPhone casino app that can be played for real money has finally been released onto the Apple App Store. SuperCasino, designed by NetPlay TV, was launched on the App Store this week and became the first real-money casino game on the store.

The SuperCasino app however isn’t a casino game in itself. Instead the app lets users place bets on live Roulette games that appear on TV on the ‘Autowheel TV’ and ‘Live Roulette’ shows.

Users can place bets whilst the roulette wheels are spinning on TV. In addition, the app has some nice little features like being able to message the presenters of the shows.

Apple’s decision to allow the first real-money casino app onto the App Store follows their recent decision to allow sports betting apps onto the store. A host of mobile casinos, such as WildJack and LadyLucks, have in the meantime been getting around the ban by making real-money casino games that work in the iPhone’s web browser, Safari.

But now it does seem only like a matter of time before proper real-money casino games like Blackjack and slot machines will be permitted on the App Store.
