Mobile Casino Gambling Popularity Surging

In the last few years, there has been a meteoric rise in the popularity of online casino gambling, and although its development is still in its infancy, mobile casino gambling is beginning to see the same surging level of popularity.

Mobile casino gambling consists of gaming programs and applications that allow users to play and enjoy casino games such as roulette, poker, slots and blackjack directly on smartphones, iPads, iPods and iPhones. For many gamblers, the increase in mobile online casino games, such as iPhone roulette or iPhone blackjack, allows them to play their favorite games anytime and anywhere, in places they could never go with their PC or laptop.

Mobile gaming began with Apple’s launching of the iPhone and the huge selection of Android devices that followed in its wake. Since its inception in 2007, the iPhone, and also the release of the iPad in 2010, have given way to a host of new mobile gaming and new betting applications created to grab a piece of this emerging market. For instance, Paddy Power introduced its creative Bet & Watch iPhone app in June of 2011. In just days following, Skybet launched its new Best 2 View service, allowing users to view free horseracing streams. Other leading European betting firms, such as Ladbrokes and William Hill, also have created their own betting apps compatible with a wide range of devices.

In keeping up with an incredible demand, manufacturers of mobile online casino gaming have made vast improvements as of late. Other than providing the tables and game statistics, the newer mobile online casino games are becoming much more attractive and refined visually. Additional functions include mimicing sounds found in a casino environment designed to match the real encounter faced by gamblers in live casinos.

While the latest developments of mobile online casino games have been very successful, the technology is still very fresh and new. Even though surveys indicate satisfaction among users, many mobile gamblers are waiting for and craving new technological advancements to make their mobile gaming experiences that much more enjoyable. Though with the continued increase of smartphone and tablet usage, this is a market that will only continue to grow in 2012.
