Mobile Casinos in Russia
Due to the ban on gambling outside of the four gambling zones, there are no mobile casinos in Russia, as of April 2017. However, should the government ever relax their stance, there is a lot of potential for mobile casino games in the former Soviet Republic.
There is a 163.9% mobile penetration rate in Russia, with 8 main operators: MTS (71.7million subscribers), MegaFon (64.1), Beeline (57.1), Tele2 Russia (23.2), Rostelecom (13.8), Sotovaja Svjaz MOTIV (2.4), SMARTS (1.8), and Tattelecom (0.1).
Smartphone penetration, however, is only 28%, although it is rising. The government will need to change tact should mobile betting wish to take off in the country, however.
