All gambling industry analysts agree – the cell phone casino and mobile gambling growth is the next big wave of popularity to expect for this industry. m-Commerce is gearing up to present iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch applications as well as Android. Some sites offer Blackberry – not many at this point in time – and virtually all online casinos worth half a penny, offer tons of WAP enabled games; there are still millions of non-smart-phone users to cater for.

One of the first to step a foot in the door with any new online gambling development is Microgaming. These developers are always on top of their game, and one of the most aggressive in their rollout of new software systems and games. They have a history of being first off the mark, and again they have got the ball rolling for the cell phone casino with the GameWire™ software platform. This technology has already advanced to another level with Microgaming Quickfire™, which allows various software platforms to operate approximately 160 of their casino table games and slots.

To explain this system very simply; Quickfire is a type of software adapter, which when plugged into any platform allows for any of its games to be played. Just to go a little deeper into it, one cannot offer slots games off a dedicated poker platform normally;s with this software one can now offer these games and it works across every online gambling platform including mobile. By the same token, more and more gambling sites are taking up the product and it is becoming widely popular, but not all Microgaming sites have it on offer as yet. You will find it at Virgin Game – they are lightening fast with every gambling game offering known to man (just about), as well as a few other websites. The uptake hasn’t exactly been slow, but it is taking time for some casino clients to see the light.

The cell phone casino market is driven by the need of the consumer to consume all the latest handsets; who are we to argue. iPhones, Blackberry’s and Androids have become bigger and better status symbols for feeding the ego of ladies, than a pair of Jimmy Choo’s and matching Vivienne Westwood handbag would do. It is easy to pass off a Woollies handbag, if you can produce the latest iPhone from its depths – not unlike the proverbial rabbit from a magicians hat – be the envy of all your friends! m-Commerce apps and platforms work hand-in-hand with this consumerism aspect.

Being on Microgaming software also means that the biggest progressive jackpot prize games have been adapted for play with the cell phone casino evolution. These are games such as Mega Moolah, Mega Major, Mega Minor and Mega Mini, which means millions of €/£/$ worth of prize money is also up for grabs on mobile. You can’t take your PC with you when you go out with the girls for a drink, but you can take your mobile casino, and won’t the girls be impressed with your new iPhone handset too?
