Online Poker’s Popularity on Mobile Devices
People in the industry have predicted that online poker is to move towards play with mobile devices more and more, with a predicted figure of 30% playing via mobile by the end of 2014. Many online casino companies, such as Jackpot247, now offer online gambling and live gaming on mobile devices via iOS and Android applications, and this has been predicted to become even more widespread in the coming months.
Online gambling experts Jackpot247 have responded to predictions that 30% of online poker will move to mobile devices by 2014.
Jeffrey Haas, an expert in the industry, said at the World Poker Tour National series event in London: “Today we have 4% of our user base [on mobile], but I see it growing. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s 25% to 30% of all players by the end of 2014, if not more… People typically play three times as many hands. Unfortunately, they also lose faster on their mobile because people have less focus.”
Online casino experts Jackpot247 have commented on the increasing popularity of mobile gambling, pointing out their own brand’s mobile options for users. A spokesperson for the company said:
“Following the incredible popularity of poker games on platforms such as Facebook and Apple’s app store, the move towards playing casino games on mobile phones and tablets is becoming more and more apparent. This will have bearing on how people play, and could even increase the popularity of gaming on trustworthy and reputable sites such as Jackpot247. Desktop playing will no doubt stick around, but this brave new world seems to be a positive addition to the world of online gambling in general.”
