The mobile gaming market is growing at a staggering rate. In 2007, players made 100 million casino plays through mobile phones. This is expected to reach 750 million casino plays by 2009. The revenue generated in the mobile gaming market was $3 billion in 2007, which is expected to rise to $16 billion by 2011. What explains this phenomenal growth is that everyone always carries a mobile hand set and as the penetration of the hand set increases so will that of mobile gaming.
The pioneer in mobile gaming technology has been Spin3. Spin3 is a division of Spiral Solutions Ltd. It was the first to spot a convergence opportunity in the popularity of online casinos and mobile communication culture. Therefore it partnered with Microgaming, which is the leading online games software developer, to offer a turnkey package in mobile gaming. The package, known as GameWire, includes complete casino systems, Java based mobile games and marketing services. The following features have been incorporated in the package: outstanding graphics, user-friendly gameplay, information security using SpinLoc system, demonstration play, 24 x 7 customer support and viral marketing facility.
Several leading online casinos are already offering mobile gaming services through Spin3. These include Royal Vegas and Platinum Play of the Fortune Group, 32Red, Ladbrokes, Wild Jack and online casinos from the Jackpot Factory Group. The suite of games currently offered by Spin3 has about 14 games including baccarat, roulette and video poker. A recent addition is Scratch 'n' Score, a football theme game. However the most popular games are blackjack, the slots game Tomb Raider and the progressive jackpot slots Major Millions. Major Millions is linked to the network of online casinos and shares the same progressive jackpot. Spin3 games are compatible with most hand sets. The list includes leading manufacturers such as LG, Motorola, Nokia, O2, Orange, Panasonic, Samsung, Siemens, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba and Vodaphone.
A few months ago Spin3 introduced mobile games for Apple's iPhone. Till then the games available on the iPhone were stand alone games and competing with Nintendo rather than online casinos. Now the iPhone will have three games from Spin3 and iPhone users can engage in mobile gaming. But since online casinos are still largely PC based, Apple's iPhone is unlikely to disturb the mobile gaming market in a big way.
