Mobile Gambling Continues to Grow


Posted: 23rd June 2015 09:27

Believe it or not but mobile was slower to take off in the gambling sector than many had predicted as many of the early gaming apps delivering very little in the way of unique usability or brand identity.  Choice was poor and lets face it the experience of playing on your mobile was pretty poor and it was no wonder that there were no great numbers rushing to play on their phones or tablets.
 
 Mobile gambling was tipped to take off several times over the past decade but it wasn't really until the launch of the iPhone back in 2007 that operators such as William Hill, Ladbrokes and Betfair amongst others began to take advantage of the channel with revenues and new users multiplying through their mobile operations.
 
Now you can find a host of brilliant mobile casinos with some unique games, bonuses and promotions up for grabs, and with the broad availability of 4G , Wi-Fi connectivity and sophisticated large screen smartphones and tablets coming down in price the opportunity is open to more of the general public to access their favourite games through their mobile devices.
 
You will find that most of the top quality online casinos such as StarGames Casino offer their mobile users some exceptional offers and it is always wise to check out these casinos to see which one is offering the best bonuses as they do change, exactly like the ones that are offered on your computer..
 
Over the last couple of years or so the growth of having a bet or wager using a mobile device has grown beyond many expectations with some betting operators reporting up to a 150% growth in their own mobile gambling services in just the last twelve months.  Other operators like William Hill and Paddy Power have also announced up to a 50% increase on their sports book turnover from punters using mobile devices. 
 
In a Nutshell
 
· High quality Wi-Fi reduces the risks of connection errors, so that players are now more confident to gamble for real money on either their tablet or smartphone.  The availability of Wi-Fi enables the general public to enjoy online gambling at many more places, including airports, public transport, pubs, shopping centres and restaurants.

· Another advantage is the fantastic range of mobile games now available.  Slots, Bingo, Sports Betting, Poker, Table Games and Scratch Cards can all be accessed from either a smartphone or tablet

· Besides all of the above possibly the biggest pull is being able to enjoy your favourite pastime whilst waiting or traveling about which means that you can now enjoy those boring periods usefully, plus you have the chance of a win, 24/7
 
This growth has surprised some in the mobile betting and casino industry and with certain US states set to regulate the use of mobile casinos the growth of remote real money gaming services is sure to increase even more.
