Mobile Phones Carry Casino SitesPublished November 19, 2006 by OCR Editor
Casinos, in their 20th century brick and mortar version, have since moved to the Internet and have become the online casinos we love playing today. Now, with a few companies already leading the way, the gambling industry is about to make another move.
The mobile service will not be entirely new and detached from the now familiar Internet games. The account used at the mobile phone will be the same as the one used at the home computer. In essence, this move is a natural extension of the exisitng website to new platforms using new technology, and not a break from the past. Blackjack, slots and roulette are some of the games that are popular at sites and will now be accessible on handhelds as well.
The new online casino cum-handheld service will be available on hundreds of models of mobile phones. Current mobile technology will offer terrific graphics and first class security. Using a web browser on the mobile phone, gamblers can download the software to their handhelds from the sites and play interchangeably on either machine. The service will be offered at a wide scale across Europe, both in free games mode and as real money games.
