The London Guardian reported today that gambling, using new generation smart-phones, is on the rise.

Figures released from bookmaker Paddy Power show an increase of 34% in gamblers placing their bets through their phones.  Paddy Power said that their mobile revenues more than quadrupled during last year.

Betfair has seen its fair share of problems recently, but has still seen more than £1billion taken from mobile phones during the last financial year. This figure was taken from 168,000 people placing a bet from their phones, an increase of 122% on the previous year.

Technology is moving at such a pace that opportunities for online gambling grow and grow, with the people of New Zealand enjoying the ease of internet gaming as much as any other nation.
