Mobile casino gambling appsIn 2015 research showed that more people own and use mobile devices than they do desktop computers. Because of this more and more industries have placed their focus on creating mobile casino apps and products to serve the needs of their clients.
 

“Most major online casinos, poker rooms, bookmakers, and even bingo sites now offer their online products in mobile form.”

Some of the most popular international online casino brands have altered their coding to provide players with an HTML5 version of their casino product.
 

Mobile gambling apps

Gambling apps are currently not allowed on Google Play store and although they are available on Apple’s iTunes they might be restricted due to local law. These restrictions have not dampened the growth and rise of gambling apps or the usage thereof. According to research, mobile betting will surpass 40% of all online wagering by 2018.

Over the past few years the biggest bookmakers such as William Hill, BetVictor, and Paddy Power have also switched to mobile betting. These leading bookmakers offer advanced betting apps with personalised features that can compete with any desktop platform. The continuous improvement of mobile devices allows these industries to improve on their apps and create a more personalised version thereof.
 

Software developers

The future of mobile gambling apps looks extremely bright as more and more states (especially in the US) are legalising online gambling or at least considering to do so. Gambling software developers have put a lot of effort and time into creating gambling apps that can compete with the desktop versions.

Many casinos have already started offering their most popular video slots and live dealer table games on mobile devices. Swedish Industry Giant, NetEnt, recently released their new NetEnt Live Mobile app which allows players access to their favourite slots and online casino games straight from their mobile at anytime from anywhere.

Furthermore, the next big move in the mobile gambling and betting industry is the integration of virtual reality with mobile gambling. One might even say that mobile gambling apps will most likely become the primary platform of the betting industry in the near future.
