London, January 30, 2011 – In the aftermath of this year’s ICE conference, it is quite clear that much of the online gaming world is looking to the mobile platform as the next big thing. Yes, true, this has been said before, but this time there were an overwhelmingly large amount of mobile launches, products and platforms on view.
Among the launches were bwin’s first ever iPhone real money Poker app, Microgaming and Spin3 have announced their Android mobile poker app and SpinSport – the mobile sportsbook app, EveryMatrix is introducing a sportsbook app, as well as William Hill’s plans for an online betting app for Android too.
Most of these mobile gaming platforms are still bringing in the early adopters and not reaching the mass proportions of online gaming, but the future looks certain to be going that way. Some of the issues that still keep players from more extensive mobile gaming have been the costs of mobile surfing, the network downtimes or outages that affect play and mobile billing issues.
However, statistics from 2010 that show zero growth in sales of basic mobile phones and a clear swing to the use of smartphones and iPhones make 2011 and the next decade, definitely a mobile dominated one.
All Slots Mobile Casino was at the forefront of the mobile revolution and remains one of the strongest providers of a complete mobile gaming experience.
