Mobile Gambling History

Mobile GamblingIt might come as a surprise to learn that mobile casino gaming is, by no stretch of the imagination, a very recent development. In fact some of the biggest names in online casino game design, development and software have been releasing gaming platforms onto the mobile gaming environment for a number of years now.

Unlike the online casino industry, where there are just a limited number of different operating systems, the mobile gaming world is ever evolving with many different companies bringing out their own handsets and mobile devices. As such it is only the major casino game designers that have the means to ensure their games are fully accessible on these many different devices.

As with most things in life it always pays dividends for you to stick to well known and trusted companies. Maybe even more so when you are looking to play casino games, as you will, above all else, be looking to access fair playing and random games that are beyond reproach.

This is why we have chosen to present you only with the mobile casino sites and mobile gaming platforms that have been released and developed by the main players in the industry.

Below is a small overview of the history of mobile gambling in relation to two of the largest players in the business; those of course being Playtech and Microgaming.

Playtech Mobile Casino Platform

Playtech was formed in 1999 and it has been the software platform of choice for many land based gaming companies who are eager to break into the online casino playing environment.

They developed their own unique mobile casino platform six years later and in 2005 it went live. This gaming platform has quickly become a reliable and very user friendly platform that offers players a huge suite of casino games.

To ensure that everyone wishing to play mobile games on Playtech’s mobile platform can do just that, as effortlessly as possible, they have made it fully compatible with most mobile phone operating systems.

Microgaming Mobile Casino Platform

Microgaming launched their first mobile casino platform back in 2005, and as such decided to launch they own offshoot company completely dedicated to bringing out a range of mobile casino games along with the engine required to run these games on.

Their mobile gaming operation goes by the name of Spin3 and to ensure that they have no shortages of mobile casino games to offer to players, they choose to release a collection of their back catalogue of online casino games.

This has proven to be a good business decision, as some of the most populated and popular mobile casinos are those using Microgaming’s Spin3 mobile gaming platform.
