Mobile Gambling a Growing Hobby in Years to Come

Many online casinos have moved into the realm of mobile gambling in recent years, and we’ve seen in 2013 that already an estimated 63 million players use their mobile devices for gambling. It’s estimated that this number will soar within the next couple of years to bring up the total number of mobile gamblers to around 160 million people by 2018.

Netent Touch

Net Entertainment has been very proactive in bringing a ton of different gambling games to touch screen interfaces under the name Netent Touch. They’re continuously converting all the classic games that people love as well as many new variants.

Yoyo Games and Playtech

Playtech has been the largest gaming software developer for some time, and they’re actively using this financial success to get even bigger.

Microgaming and Virtual Reality

Microgaming has been around for some time and has been aggressively expanding into the areas of wearable technology and even virtual reality. The company has already developed a slot machine for the much talked about but still very new Oculus Rift system and are planning to produce augmented reality games for Google Glass and its competitors once they’ve been introduced to the market.
