Mobile Casinos in Philippines
Although the Philippines were the fastest-growing market for smartphones in the Southeast Asia region in 2012, these devices can not be used to access local casinos. Since true online gambling is not available in the Philippines, local mobile casinos do not exist either.
As of 2012, the number of mobile subscribers in the Philippines was estimated at 95 million, practically a full 100% penetration rate. Two companies hold the market: the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company through its Sun Cellular, Smart Communications and Talk N Text brands has around 70% share while Globe Telecom commands the rest.
Using various offers for unlimited mobile internet access, Filipino players have been wagering on foreign sites in increasing numbers.
