LONDON, October 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
A new infographic created by PocketWinnings.com illustrates the growth of the $100 billion mobile gambling industry.
PocketWinnings.com recently published a startling new infographic that reveals the rapid growth and development of the mobile gambling industry.
The PocketWinnings.com infographic illustrates how the growth of the mobile gambling industry could be worth up to $100 billion by 2017. It includes details about the growth of mobile gambling with specific reference to different operators and mobile games.
Mobile revenues currently make up 15% of the gambling industry, however this could increase to 17% within a couple of years. This figure represents an incredible 19% growth rate for the entire mobile gambling industry.
According to the Adam Green, head of PocketWinnings.com's research team: "The accelerated growth of the mobile gambling industry is mainly due to the increasing proportion of people in the world who own a smart phone, larger amounts of people accessing the Internet via mobile devices and an increase in the number of mobile-only casino providers such as Probability Ltd and Pocket Fruity."
The highest growing area of the remote gambling industry (according to PocketWinnings.com) is the UK betting market. Bookmakers such as Bet365 have reported a 150% increase in mobile revenues, while Paddy Power recently stated that 51% of their sportsbook turnover comes from mobile, up from 22% in 2011. Most of this growth can be attributed to the heavy promotion of mobile and in-play betting services such as Bet365's classic "Bet in Play Now" advert, which features Ray Winstone.
The infographic also shows the top three biggest ever jackpot winnings, starting with William Hill's £866,000 jackpot in August 2013 to the record £3.74 million jackpot won by Gabriel L at Spin Palace Mobile Casino in September 2013!
The infographic ends with good news for US casino players and affiliates, who will be happy to learn that New Jersey is set to be the first US state to offer regulated mobile gambling by the end of the year.
