A Changing Industry


One of the biggest changes in the online gaming industry over the past decade or so has been the emergence of mobile gaming. Smartphones and tablets are now ubiquitous meaning that everyone has access to a world of entertainment in their pockets within a few touches. All the major casinos now have apps for smartphones and tablets and the competition between companies to have the best app is fierce. Mr Green are the current holders of the much coveted ‘Mobile Operator of the Year’ award from the International Gaming Awards but will find it difficult to retain the prize this year with pressure from Betfair and their other competitors. Mobile gambling is worth an estimated £4.5 billion to the industry each year and that figure is only set to increase in the future.
