The world of i-gaming, a proportional indicator of the future for i-gambling, is shifting towards mobile usage, with Asia driving a booming market, according to a new study by SuperData Research.
The research company predicts that overall mobile gaming revenues will reach $21.1 billion by the end of this year, and that by 2016, global gaming revenue will be at $28.2 billion as increasing numbers of smart phone and tablet users are generated by nations like Russia, India and China.
The company claims that the Asia Pacific region accounts for half the mobile gaming market and continues to grow as smartphone and tablet devices become ever more ubiquitous.
The Asian mobile gaming market is set to climb to $11.3 billion, according to SuperData; this includes revenue generated by in-game ads and in-app purchases.
Asian nations like China, South Korea and Japan spend more on a per player basis than western nations, the study found.
An online slots player identified only as Susan is on a hot streak this week; not only has she survived a two-year struggle with cancer and heart surgery, but a winning run at Club World online casino has removed any concerns regarding medical debts, and boosted her finances.
The $631,421 win means this deserving player can take her family on holiday to Florida and settle other debts...and still have money to spare.
During her lucrative winning streak, Susan mostly played the Mayan Queen and Goldbeard slots from RTG.
I usually don't win big at all, maybe $1000 or so, Susan told casino management. When I hit that magic combo and my balance soared and didn't stop I was in shock!
A few hours later, I was having trouble sleeping and thought I would play a little more. Then my balance more than doubled!!! I was only trying to win the $11,000 jackpot and then...wow!
She added: Over the past two years, I have struggled to survive cancer and just recently heart surgery. But I was not surviving the medical bills. Now I can begin a new life without any debt. And Im going to take my husband and daughter to Disney World!
Social sports betting fans have access to a new aid on their smartphones and tablets this week following the launch of Tipday, a free sports tip facility from 180Vita which is available in iOS and Android formats.
Using the apps, fans can predict match results and correct scores on thousands of football fixtures including all English Premier League and La Liga matches.
The apps give players the social and personal opportunity to make free bets in order to see what they could have won or lost, using realtime and factual odds from seven of the worlds largest bookmakers, including Paddy Power and William Hill.
That gives punters a chance to trial the facility and practice before deciding whether to put real cash on the line.
Sports fans are rarely without their mobile phone while watching the game, and from the outset Tipday has planned to cater to this by introducing a mobile-friendly product, said 180Vita spokesman Jamie Nevin this week.
The intuitive nature of the Apple and Android Apps allows punters to get a feel for sports betting wherever they are and without spending a single penny.
Nevin revealed that points are awarded for each correct tip, tied to bookmakers odds, and tipsters are able to follow the most successful tipsters and copy or challenge their predictions.
Tipday already has over 7,500 tipsters signed up, giving new users plenty of options and opinions when it comes to finding winning betting strategies.
Members can also sign up to real-money betting sites through Tipday, benefiting from promotions and special bonus offers.
