Bingo Players Welcome Arrival of Mobile Gaming Technology
A new investigation into the habits of online bingo players has revealed a surprising level of interest in mobile gaming technology. New research conducted by Britain’s leading bingo authority has revealed that the online community is keen to take advantage of services which promise to offer access to games whenever and wherever players choose. The survey, which was undertaken by the UK independent body Bingoport.co.uk, found that some 47% of bingo lovers owned a device with web enabled technology. A further 34% of questioned participants said that they would be keen to play for real money on their phones – a number which has exceeded industry expectations.
Casino operators throughout the world have been quick to respond to the interest – developing a range of titles suitable for the mobile sector. Players can now look forward to enjoying all time classics such as blackjack and roulette alongside the latest slots releases complete with mega progressive jackpots. 30% of surveyed bingo customers said that they would be looking to play mobile slots for real money in the near future.
Mobile developers, meanwhile, continue to compete for their share of a rapidly expanding market. Research suggests that Android compatible models currently account for 65% of web enabled devices with Blackberrys making up 19% and the iPhone a more modest 16%. It seems that mobile gaming looks set to take off with even greater force in forthcoming months as busy gamers flock online like never before. Bingo enthusiasts will no doubt be availing themselves of this increasingly user friendly technology in the course of the year ahead.
