How Have Smartphones Revolutionized the iGaming Industry

There is no doubt that smartphones have changed the entire way the world lives since they were first introduced.

When the first iPhone was released by Apple 15 years ago, many had felt that it was groundbreaking at the time, although we would have all had trouble predicting just how much of an impact that it would have had and how the devices would have changed our lives as much as they have.

Although people as individuals have managed to experience a number of benefits since their introduction, one industry to have been able to have had a significantly positive impact following their creation and their continued development is the iGaming sector.


Perhaps one of the biggest benefits that smartphones have managed to provide the iGaming industry is that they have allowed the market to become more accessible to punters all over the world.

The device is like a mini-computer as they allow users to be able to explore a number of different websites from the palm of our hands. Indeed, almost any website in the world can be visited and this includes the gambling operators that can be found, where bettors are able to take advantage of some exceptional bonuses and promotions. Players can learn more about the best cricket betting sites for example, which is one area of betting that has proven very popular amongst smartphone punters in recent years.

Before the introduction of smartphones, and subsequently, tablets, bettors who were interested in playing games would have to sit at a laptop or a computer to enjoy an online casino experience, whereas they can now play wherever they wish.


It is no secret that our daily lives appear to be getting busier than ever before these days, especially as we get older as many go on to have families or acquire a job that requires more time to be spent working.

Smartphones have managed to take these particular factors into account by allowing users to do almost anything they want on them, thus enhancing the level of convenience that is offered and enjoyed. Indeed, this also includes online gambling.

Operators have been able to create simple-to-use apps that afford a huge amount of convenience as punters will simply have to click on it once it is downloaded and have access to all of their favourite titles in one single place. This has made things easier and quicker, thus allowing players to play even when they might not have as much time as they wish.

On-demand features

Sports betting is an iGaming activity that has really taken off with the introduction of smartphones as bettors are now able to place a bet as the action unfolds without having to go to a traditional shop.

These particular devices have the capability of providing punters with all of the latest odds and markets in a timely manner, whilst the individual can sit in the comfort of their own home or at a venue where they are enjoying the sporting action on the screen, or even whilst in a stadium!


To conclude, it is clear that each of the factors outlined above all fit into each other rather nicely and complement each other. However, it is clear that the introduction of smartphones 15 years ago and their continued development has had a huge benefit on the iGaming industry as a whole and will likely continue to have a positive impact in the near future, too.
