Gaming stakeholders are now saying that thanks to mobile devices that are highly responsive with the modern technology, over 164 million people are estimated to access online mobile casino by 2018.
There is the good reason to believe this new study. Unlike in the past, about ten years ago, when gambling was only available in designated gaming facilities, many people can now access their favorite online gaming platforms from their mobile devices.
Today, anybody who is passionate about gambling can access any time of the game, place a bet and check the outcome of his/her bet on a mobile device.
The cell phone has been made possible since 2006 when mobile casinos started in various parts of the world.
Since that time, online casino industry became an industry of its own with many gaming companies who initially had invested in land-based casinos starting to put their money in the new internet gaming heavily.
Clients also started following their favorite sports online using their mobile devices such as mobile handsets, Android, iPhones, Tablets and other smaller devices that would allow them access internet wherever they are.
It is no longer necessary to sit in front of a desktop to place a bet. With just a mobile device that can be able to connect to the internet, you are as good as those that visit a gaming facility that was built in the 1940s. Innovations have completely changed how people gamble.
According to a recent survey, over 55% of the American gamblers use their mobile devices when engaging in internet gambling. That means they have shifted from the traditional land-based gaming floors to utilizing the new mobile casino.
Further, the survey indicates that a big number of the 55% who place their bets via mobile devices do so with the help of mobile applications they have installed on their mobile devices. In fact, the survey says that the number is 47% that access various internet casino platforms via apps while the remaining 8% access their traditional online gaming facilities by browsing through a search engine.
With a large number of clients following online gaming platforms, companies have also taken the initiative of investing in various high-end software that makes it easy or customers to easily navigate, place their bets, make payments, check the results and even play live in-games real time.
It is because of these and other reasons the survey continues to indicate that by the end of 2017 mobile gambling will collect over $100 billion with that number likely to surge even further thanks to innovations and various easy-to-use software.
When asked why he prefers mobile casino to visiting a local gaming floor, one long-time gambler said that it is ‘ancient’ to visit a gaming floor.
With the advent of mobile casinos, many bettors would rather stay at home and gamble from the comfort of their couches while spending valuable time with their families.
The longtime gambler said, “Mobile casinos over mobility and convenience.”
