Gambling fans in the United Kingdom who own Apple iPhones will soon be able to
use them to gamble for real money, thanks to a the upcoming launch of Big
Fish Casino
by interactive games vendor, Big Fish Games Inc.

According to reports, when the new Big Fish Casino App becomes available in
Apple’s UK App Store in the next few weeks, players will be able to enjoy a
selection of real money slot games. The financial aspect of the mobile gaming
site will be processed by London-based firm Betable Ltd, on behalf of
Seattle-based Big Fish Games.

Confirmed Betable CEO Christopher Griffin, in a recent interview: ‘This is the
biggest opportunity that game developers have had since the advent of the
internet.’

Mobile Gambling is Legal in the UK

While this is great news for gambling fans in the UK, where land, online and
mobile gambling is legalised and regulated, for gamblers across the Atlantic in
the United States, the prospect of being able to legally gamble online or via
mobile is still a pipe dream, as the popular internet activity is still illegal
at a federal level.

That said, a handful of US states including Nevada, New Jersey and California
are reportedly seriously considering the legislation and regulation of online
gambling. Although when that will happen remains to be seen.

When Big Fish Casino for iPhones becomes available, it will give UK gaming fans
the opportunity to spin the reels on the go with nothing more than a swipe of a
finger, making it one of the easiest and most convenient forms of gambling
entertainment currently available.

Mobile Gaming Sector Worth $100B by 2017

According to Juniper Research, a leading UK wireless analyst firm, the mobile
gaming sector is expected to generate over $100 billion per year by 2017. And
for this reason, most of the world’s biggest game developers have developed or
are developing digital versions of Las Vegas-style casinos for smart phones and
devices.

In fact, one game developer expected to give Big Fish a run for its
money is Zynga Inc, the world’s largest social games developers, which announced
plans last month to release real-money betting services in the first half of
next year. Zynga also recently started investing in state and federal lobbying
efforts designed to allow real money gambling in the US.
