Why has mobile betting become so popular?

26 February, 2018 Gaming

 

Smartphones and tablets are now the most popular media for not just online gambling, but gambling in general. And it's not hard to see why; with a host of apps available, punters now have more ways to play than ever before. Here are just some of the many reasons why mobile gaming is so popular...

 

Play on the move

 

Almost certainly the biggest advantage that mobile devices offer gamblers is the ability to play on the move. While laptops are essentially mobile, they are also heavier and slower to turn on than your smartphone or tablet.

 

Whether you're standing up in a crowded train carriage, in the dentist's waiting room, or even in bed, mobile betting gives you a world of ways to win at your fingertips. Just pick up the device, tap the app icon and get started - it's that easy!

 

The internet gaming industry as a whole used to be considered the poorer cousin of traditional brick-and-mortar casinos.

 

And while mobile devices don't yet rival the likes of Las Vegas for sheer immersive thrills, the technology is improving all the time. 3D games with real dealers are already popular on mobile because they provide much of the excitement of real-world casinos. This all comes without the need to tip your host, or get past a grumpy doorman who doesn't like the look of you.

 

Less expensive

 

Smartphones and tablets are generally cheaper to buy than laptops or desktop computers. Whereas most desktops cost £300-£2000, smartphones range in price from £100 to £500 and tablets are available to buy for as little as £49!

 

Fast and powerful

 

Experts have been predicting for a while mobile graphic and processing capabilities would soon surpass those of consoles. While this remains to be seen in 2018, the 2017 release of the Qualcomm 835 processor represents a step change in processing speed for mobile devices. Now smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 boast processing speeds of 2.45GHz, which puts it among the fastest mobile devices in the world.

 

The latest mobile devices allow punters to enjoy live dealer casinos and talk with other players with pristine graphics and no noticeable latency. With each passing year, there are fewer and fewer reasons to choose either traditional casinos or desktop gaming over their mobile equivalents.

 

Creativity

 

Due to the low costs involved, many operators make casino games especially for mobile devices. Whereas some developers try to emulate the traditional casino experience, others use cute animations and stories that can only exist in the digital realm. The low cost of mobile app development has resulted in a deeper level of creativity that just didn't exist prior to the release of the Apple iPhone (the world's first smartphone).

 

Bonuses and other rewards

 

There are hundreds of mobile betting operators. As a result, operators try to outdo the competition by offering an array of attractive sign-up bonuses and in-game rewards. While this is somewhat true of online gaming in general, merchants also offer rewards for downloading their apps, which of course you can only take advantage of using a mobile device.
