A significant increase in internet speeds, along with advances in mobile technology, has meant that many people are now choosing to undertake a multitude of tasks and activities from their mobile devices.
One of the main beneficiaries of this trend in recent years has been the mobile gaming industry. The concept of gaming from a mobile device is nothing new – those who are able to cast their minds back around 20 years ago will remember the revolutionary game of Snake, which was available for many of the early Nokia phones. Of course, mobile gaming has come a long way since the halycon days of the Nokia 3310, but with mobile gaming now a market frontrunner as opposed to just a passing fad, just what is driving this recent spike in popularity?

A More Mobile Population
By 2020, it’s estimated that there will be close to three billion smartphone users worldwide. In addition to this, we are spending more time than ever before fiddling with our phones, refreshing feeds and tweeting our favorite celebrities. With more users and mobile devices in circulation than ever before, the potential for mobile gaming is endless and this has led to a multitude of online sites offering mobile versions of their best selling games.
Variety Is the Spice of Mobile Gaming Life
One of the most attractive aspects of mobile gaming lies in the multitude of games available to the user. Whether you’re into first-person shooters, sports-related titles or puzzle games, there’s something to satisfy even the hardest to please gamers. As can be seen in this casumo casino summary, online casino is an area which has strived more than most to provide a mobile option for popular games and make life easier for the user when it comes to banking and payment options.
Key Players Are Now Getting On Board With Mobile Gaming
Companies such as Microsoft and Google have already recognized the growing influence that mobile gaming is having on the entertainment industry. Both Microsoft’s Project xCloud and Google’s Project Stream were launched with the idea of allowing players to enjoy console games on mobile platforms through the use of special servers. With Amazon reportedly looking set to follow suit in 2020, the mobile gaming industry is finally gaining credibility as a legitimate platform in its own right.
What Does the Future Hold For Mobile Gaming?
With the speed at which technology currently moves, it’s difficult to predict where the mobile gaming industry will be within the next decade or so. However, with faster internet speeds and immersive gaming on the horizon (virtual and augmented reality, in particular), it seems as that mobile gaming can only go from strength to strength in the near future. In addition to this, the increase in the size of mobile screens and processing power will ensure that playing via mobile continues to be a viable alternative to a console or PC gaming.
