«Does Development of Mobile Casinos Serve the Purpose?

The main trend of the development of online gaming is their availability for smartphone owners. As it is expected by experts, in the nearest future there will be a major shift of online gamblers toward mobile casinos and mobile devices will completely replace personal computers.
Last month Business Insider reported that in the year 2013 about 22% of the world’s population purchased smartphones, while in 2009 the percentage of smartphone owners did not exceed 5% of the world’s population.
Taking all these figures into consideration it’s not surprising at all that H1 Gambling Capital’s in their Mobile Gambling Report estimated that the probable profit in the sphere of mobile online entertainment would have reached € 19 billion by the year 2018. Taking into account the fact that in 2012 H2 Gambling Capital’s estimated the profit of the same market at € 4,5 billion it, it is evident that experts hope for a significant increase of the mobile casino industry all around the globe.
All in all, the percentage of money won by players gambling on their smartphones does not exceed 18% of all the money won in online casinos in general. In spite of the statistics reported by gambling sites stating that practically 50% of their customers connect to their sites by means of mobile phones or tablets. People dealing with this kind of things acknowledge the fact that the fault lies with incompatibility of such platforms with mobile devices, possible programming errors and drawbacks. It follows that energy conversion efficiency of games played by means of mobile devices is extremely low in comparison to gaming via a browser or by means of a downloadable version of the casino.
They are incapable of converting the high level of traffic in solvent clients.There is an opinion based on real facts that even if gambling sites are absolutely compatible with mobile devices, the maximum percentage of gamblers who will connect to gambling sites by means of their mobile devices will not exceed 90% of all potential casino customers. To explain this phenomenon is quite simple. The matter is that 10% of all those appreciating and practicing online entertainment do not have sufficient technical skills and knowledge. Most of them made every effort to get used to gambling on their computers. The majority of such players are over 45 years old.It is worthwhile to mention that professional gamblers do not actually play in mobile casinos and give their preference to PC’s in order to play online games. This approach gives them a variety of advantages, such as possibility to play several games simultaneously and keep track of the events directly or indirectly related to the game.
