Mobile Casinos in the United Kingdom
Just as it is the case with online gambling venues, the mobile casino selection available to UK residents is large. Although some are unlicensed to accept British players, there are quite a few that can operate legally because they are based in the UK or in one of the white-listed jurisdictions, such as Gibraltar, Isle of Man or Malta.
As smartphones proliferate (half of the phones in the UK are now such devices), there is a growing interest in mobile casinos sites. Their operators offer all sorts of games to players with mobile devices, and slots are especially popular among them.
There are four networks that subscribers use. These (and their market shares) are: EE [T-Mobile/Orange] (33%), O2 (29%), Vodafone (25%) and 3 (13%).
There are twice as many Android phones sold in the country than iOS ones, and in fact 6 out of 10 smartphones feature the little green robot.
Brits are avid players and are keen on visiting mobile casinos, even during long commutes to and from work. Although planned legislative changes may make it tougher for operators to remain profitable from the end of 2014, mobile device use will remain one of the main drivers of these profits.
