2012 is likely to be recognised as the year mobile gambling finally came of age. For many years, the platform was heralded as the ‘next big thing’ - the future of gambling. Yet, results have fallen way short of the ambitious projections of a few years ago.

In 2005, Jupiter Research forecasted that global mobile gambling services would generate revenues of more than $19.3 billion by 2009. Yet in 2010, Gartner analysts showed the 2009 revenue levels at $4.7 billion. In the past few years, Juniper Research has found that growth has been in-line with expectations, notwithstanding the economic downturn.

According to a February 2010 comScore MobiLens study smartphone subscribers are much more likely to play mobile casino games than subscribers of generic phones. The study revealed that 7.6% of smartphone subscribers but only 1.2% of generic mobile subscribers played mobile casino games within a three month time frame.
