Mobile Gaming Set to Grow 19% Per Year For 3 Years
According to figures released by MobileCasinos.co, the mobile gaming market is set to grow at a pace of 19% per year until 2016.
The statistics show that mobile gaming will grow at an average rate of 19% for smartphones and just under 50% for tablets.
In 2016 it is thought that revenue from smartphone gaming will hit $13,9 billion and tablet and smartphone devices will make up over a fifth of the global market.
The owners of MobileCasinos.com released a statement reading, “Mobile gaming has been the elephant in the room for quite some time now.
Companies such as Juniper Research have traditionally over-estimated growth rates for mobile gambling; however, in 2012 and 2013 we saw these markets grow by more than 10%. The rate of growth is only going to continue as more gaming companies such as Zynga contract out mobile app development and invest native apps for mobile devices.”
Thanks to the advancement in mobile gaming, users are now able to download an app and start gambling on their smartphones in just a few minutes. There are now loads of fantastic games formatted for mobiles including favourite slots from developers such as Microgaming and Playtech.
