    Flimsy conclusions at best. Just more sensationalist junk aimed at grabbing easy links. Seems it worked.

    I will be curious to see if this actually happens. Pretty tough to predict for sure.

    Nothing new in this article. It is already widely known that mobile gambling is growing and will grow much more in the coming years.

    Agreed, personally I think mobile as they think it exists is horrible, I don't wanna play on a 3 inch screen.

    But a tablet size is ok....

    But real mobile computing which is a laptop has been around longer then anyone who counts the numbers as being mobile.

    As more people leave desktops for laptops and tablets it makes sense to increase.

    I think decent games for phones are video poker and blackjack. If you remember when we (I) were young, there were the Chinese video poker games for kids. They were pretty cool to play. They weren't much bigger than the smart phones nowadays.

    Poker on mobile/tablets is great. Pokerstars in particular very user-friendly. I've not tried Coral, bwin.party, or PKR yet, but they all also offer mobile/tablet poker.

    Really must get round to doing something with mobilepoker.co.uk / mobilepoker.uk.

    Nothing new but perhaps is interesting to people not in gambling to understand what this business is worth.

    Mobile and tablet betting are both growing rapidly and it wouldn't surprise me if these 2018 estimates turn out to be true.

    I use my mobile and tablet more and more these days for betting and online purchases it's just so much more convenient to stretch out on the couch and surf the net.

    Mobile and tablet gambling are ever increasing for obvious reasons, but I wouldn't necessarily agree with those figures.

    The figures seem to be large estimates and the accuracy, as with all estimates , is in doubt. We currently received around half of our traffic in mobile traffic, which has increased from around 30% over the last 12 months.
