One of Canada’s most popular casinos, the Lucky Nugget, has predicted that the mobile gaming market will be worth $100 billion in just five years time.
The market has been growing exponentially with the increasing popularity of smartphones as well as more gambling apps being created.
Of the 85% of the Canadian population that uses a mobile phone, 45% of them use smartphones. Of the smartphone users, 85% of them regularly use the internet to download gaming apps.
A number of online casinos now offer mobile versions of their websites and many are developing apps. Mobile gaming is attractive as they offer greater flexibility, choice and accessibility.
These are all hugely important features to gaming fans. The biggest advantage has got to be that players can enjoy gambling wherever they are, on the train to work, while watching TV at home or even just during their lunch breaks.
At the same time, online casinos are always releasing new games for mobile and the choice of games is growing ever larger.
This doesn’t mean that regular online casinos will disappear, but the diversity in the market will attract even more players and as a result more and more options for players are likely to be developed.
