Mobile Poker Club which pioneered mobile gaming and specialises in this area has about one million users and is expecting to see a major increase in players of its Texas Hold’em games with the release of its real money app for Android and iPhone and iPad smart phones. The new app can also be used on a mobile device by players to join multi- table shootout sit and go games, free rolls and multi table tournaments. As the number of players with hand held mobile devices grows so will the apps on offer for mobile gambling continue to be developed and launched.
There has been major growth in the mobile gambling market as mobile devices are now such an integral part of daily life. The move from playing in a land based casino to the ease of playing casino games online in the comfort of one’s own home has developed further now with the possibility of playing casino games no matter where one is using a hand held mobile phone or a tablet. Along with the increase in the use of mobile devices has come an increase in the number of applications being developed for mobile gambling.
