New Slots & Apps Reflect Mobile Gambling BoomPublished September 20, 2013 by OCR Editor
Gambling via smartphones and tablets is the way of the future.
It seems like only yesterday that the online casino popped up (well it was only in the 1990s), but already a new future is on the horizon: mobile gambling is set to dominate the next decade, as the proliferation of news apps and slots demonstrates.
Data Shows Trend
All the latest data point to a revolution: a recent report by Juniper Research found that the global mobile gambling industry will be worth more than $100 billion by 2017. Net profits are expected to exceed $45 billion that period, showing consistently strong growth over the next four years.
Most of this growth is fuelled not only by customer demand for gambling products, but also by the high proportion of mobile owners. Some two-thirds of Brits own smartphones that are capable of accessing gambling apps, while the number is rising in the emerging markets of Asia too.
Latest Apps and Games
All Slots Casino provides the perfect example of an online gambling giant hedging its future on mobile. This online casino is adding more and more games to its iOS platform every month, including three mobile-optimized HTML5 slots in August: Big Top, Break da Bank Again, and Lion's Pride.
William Hill, one of the leading online gambling and betting firms, recently launched the latest version of its sports wagering app for Nevada residents. WH and other companies see much potential in the US mobile betting and gambling arena, which is sure to catch up on the European field in due time.
