Mobile Casinos in South Korea
Because there are no domestic online casino sites, there is no such thing as a Korean mobile casino, either. Local players must visit foreign sites if they wish to gamble on the go.
Mobile penetration stood at 110% at the beginning of 2013. Network operators SK Telecom (48%), KT (30%) and LG U+ (22%) cater to the subscribers.
Smartphone penetration is massive (8 out of 10 mobile users), which is to be expected in the homeland of world leading manufacturers Samsung and LG. When it comes to wireless internet subscriptions South Korea is also on top, being the first country to cross the 100% penetration threshold.
South Koreans are active in their smartphone use, not just in making phone calls, but watching live streaming TV, browsing the net and playing a number of social and casino games.
