Gambling is an excellent example of how mobile devices have transformed the way both players and gambling developers approach gaming. Like many other online activities we engage in like online banking and online shopping, mobile devices have meant that with the touch of a button we can be constantly online. Mobile casino gambling apps are the biggest hit in the gaming sector as more people choose to have the option of owning a portable casino in their pocket. The freedom to play whenever and from wherever we choose is proving for many the ultimate gaming pleasure.
Major gaming developers like the Swedish-based “Net Entertainment” realized the mobile gambling trend back in 2011 when they launched their NetEnt Touch Solution. NetEnt Touch was launched initially to work only on iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad. NetEnt has recently upgraded their NetEnt Touch by expanding it to be compatible on the Android platform which is an important strategic move on their part.
Net Entertainment’s CEO Per Eriksson explained their mobile expansion to the Android platform,” We are committed to making sure that our mobile games remain world leading and the natural step for us was to launch them on Android devices.” He also pointed out that with Android narrowing the gap with iOS these two markets have great growth potential for NetEnt.
Presently NetEnt offer 7 mobile games that can be played both on iOS and Android and are planning to add more. These mobile games include Jack Hammer, Blackjack, Flowers, Victorious, Mythic Maiden, Suptopia and Gonzo’s Quest.
