Firm Predicts Lucrative Future For Mobile Betting Market

It has come as no surprise that the mobile gaming market has become a huge hit. From social games to gambling activities, smart phone and tablet computer users around the world are using the mobile devices every day to compete in some way. According to research firm Juniper Research, mobile gambling is the fastest growing form of mobile entertainment and sees a bright future ahead of it.

The mobile gambling market has seen impressive growth over the course of the past few years. Taking in $13 billion in wagers proves that the market has arrived, and shows no signs of disappearing anytime soon. In fact, most sportsbooks are now depending on at least half of their profits to be generated by the mobile market.

We saw the beginnings to this revolution in during the 2010 World Cup. There was a vast increase in live mobile betting, as spectators could wager on the games while at the local bar or pub. Fortunately, it wasn’t just a fad, and the market has continued to thrive.

The mobile betting market has seen so much success that Juniper Research anticipates that it will be worth $45 billion by the year 2017. The firm also anticipates that other forms of mobile gambling, including mobile poker and mobile casino games, will generate an additional $55 billion by that time.

IGT Launches Breakfast at Tiffany’s Slots Game

A fun and exciting new slot machine is available from IGT, based on the classic romance movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The casino developer has decided to take a different route from most other designers who create branded slots games; rather than basing its titles on superheroes and action stars, IGT is taking a more mature approach.

But, that doesn’t mean that the game is lacking in fun winning opportunities. Breakfast At Tiffany’s makes incredible use of the touch screen features available on IGT’s new cabinets. For example, one of the bonus rounds requires players to pet Cat while another asks them to type on Paul’s keyboard. This is a new feature that other slot machine developers have yet to employ, and you can try it first by playing Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

There are two separate base games that players can try: Holly’s and Paul’s. Each game offers players separate prizes, doubling the winning potential with every spin they make.

Bonus features are also plentiful. Cat appears on the screen to turn regular symbols into bonus symbols and there are other offscreen bonuses available as well. For example, players can steal prizes from the Five and Dime and take alcoholic shots for extra credits!
