The report notes that online gambling services are now a well established sector of the global gambling market. The first online gambling offering was launched in 1995, and there are now several thousand such sites worldwide. This success has led to attempts to transfer the concept of online gambling into the mobile environment, where the social, cultural, regulatory and technological hurdles faced by mobile gambling are more significant that with any other form of mobile entertainment.
Thus far, 2008 has been an encouraging year for a number of mobile gambling service providers, with many seeing total wager increasing by more than 100 percent y-o-y. However, growth continues to be hampered by the complex national and state legislation which impacts all forms of remote gambling.
