Two recent online gambling studies have both shown that the mobile gambling market is showing continued growth, with more people than ever using their mobile devices to wager online.
Mobile Commerce News has quoted a study by Forrester Research that 59% American online gamblers also use the internet on their mobile devices.
The article also states:
"Furthermore, the results of research performed by H2 Gambling Capital indicated that the growth of the mobile online casino gambling industry is showing no indication of slowing down for many more years. In fact, quite the opposite. The industry should be able to sustain a solid growth rate over many upcoming years."
The second study by H2 also shows that by 2015 mobile gambling could be worth €5.4 billion, if the market grows at a rate of 19.3% annually. The study suggests that it is likely that the most popular mobile games will shift from sports betting games toward bingo, casino games and poker apps.
Also of today the mobile poker market is worth €2.22 billion, which does not include illegal or unauthorized gambling sites.
