Most internet gaming industry experts agree that mobile phones will play a large part in the future of online gambling. While it is unlikely that betting from a cell phone will become more popular than gambling from a computer in the comfort and privacy of one’s own home, there will be an increasing demand for remote wagering services as more and more people become active user’s of smart phones, tablets and laptops.
Currently, there are just a handful of operators with casino game apps available through the Apple Store and/or Google Play Marketplace. One of them is the well-known Euro and UK gaming brand, 888 Casino (click to visit site). Being one of the oldest and largest online casinos in the world, it’s no huge surprise that 888 would have a mobile offering available. What is surprising, however, is the fact that 888 just recently entered this frontier.
With the release of a Roulette application for Android devices and iPad tablets last month, and a launch of a Blackjack and Slots application this month, 888 has officially made its recent entry into the world of mobile online gambling. Considering the challenges that the mobile market poses any application developer, it’s safe to say that 888 has been eyeing the mobile gaming sector very closely.
Although casino software giants, Microgaming and Playtech, both launched mobile gaming platforms years earlier, there is still some uncertainty lingering whether the mobile gaming market will continue to increase demand at a rate that warrant R&D of mobile gaming applications. You could say that Playtech and Microgaming both made a bet on the mobile market. And while this sector currently accounts for a small percentage of revenue for online casino operators, mobile online gaming is experiencing growth and increasing demand.
All things considered, 888 is still well ahead of the rest of the pack. With three types of casino games already under their belt, it will likely be a matter of months until more game releases come and match the portfolio of mobile games currently being offered at Microgaming-powered online casinos like Royal Vegas and Platinum Play.
888 Casino’s all-in-one app can be quickly downloaded with a QR code reader, directly from their mobile webpage. Just scan the code and your download will begin. How’s that for user-friendliness and convenience?
