Mobile gambling is the next big thing in the online casino industry. As more and more individuals begin to buy smart phones and tablet computers, the need for mobile entertainment grows – and online casino developers are here to meet this demand. This year has already seen significant growth in the mobile gambling sector, according to a report by Rank Group.
According to the Rank Group, 70 000 customers downloaded its mobile betting application in just the first half of 2011. The company is expecting to see even more growth over the course of the rest of the year.
Revenues from mobile gaming have increased by 28% over this period of time. There are currently 300 000 existing members as part of Rank Group’s online gaming communities, and the company expects that more online players will begin to make the shift from online to mobile gaming in the near future.
An increasing number of online gambling developers are making the shift to mobile platforms. Currently, only a few titles are available for Android and iPhone devices, but that will soon change as the demand for mobile entertainment continues to increase.
