Let’s take a look at the growth of real-money mobile gaming over the last year. In the summer of 2013, a number of high-profile operators reported that they had seen triple-digit growth in their mobile betting markets. That includes all forms of mobile wagering—sports betting, poker and casino gambling combined. It reflects a number of decisive points, including the exponential popularity of using mobile devices, the favorable sophistication and graphic capabilities of mobile apps, as well as the progressive swell of internet-based gambling in general.


Supremacy of Samsung Galaxy

The Samsung Galaxy is one of many trademarked mobile devices that utilize the Android operating system. Its rivals include such esteemed brands as HTC, LG, Sony and Motorola. Each of these companies has introduced a multitude of Android smartphones over the last few years. Samsung’s Galaxy series as seen over 30 releases since the original Samsung Galaxy hit the shelves in the summer of 2009, and its rivals have issued similar figures in productivity. But when we look at the market share between Android mobile devices since the Galaxy S4’s release in April 2013, the favorite is easy to identify.

At the end of 2013, Samsung’s Galaxy series accounted for 8 of the top 10 selling Android powered Smartphones in the world, taking up all of the top 7 spots. The Samsung Galaxy S3 and more recent Galaxy S4 editions took the number 1 and 2 positions respectively, with only the HTC One and Motorola Droid RAZR managing to break into the top 10 at the number 8 and 9 spot. Samsung Galaxy’s dominance in the Android market is clearly attributed to the company’s pioneering technologies.


The Samsung Galaxy S4 is supported by all major Australian carriers, including Telstra, Optus, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone Australia. It offers a multitude of advanced features that players of mobile pokies can appreciate, such as a super AMOLED multi-touch capacitive touchscreen, HD graphic quality, virtual keyboard, accelerometer for auto-rotate and 4G connectivity, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Its initial release came with Android 4.2.2 Jellybean (upgradable) with TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 UI (the user touch interface that makes the latest Samsung technology so easy to use).


Glaring-Bright Future for Samsung Galaxy Pokies

In a press release from Juniper Research in December 2013, their data showed that there were already 64 million people around the world wagering on their mobile devices. That number is estimated to rise to 164 million by 2018. If we combine the statistics of that study with that of the mobile market share, we can deduce that there are approximately 40 million people already enjoying Samsung Galaxy pokies, sportsbooks, card gaming sites and other forms of mobile betting. If Samsung continues to corner the market on mobile devices, 2018 would see that figure jump to 103 million.


In the same research publication, it was noted that the majority of mobile gamers are former online players who have elected to leave their desktop and laptop PCs behind in favor of mobile betting. That fact was accredited to the superior features mobile pokies and other games offer the user. It was specifically noted that, “dual-screen options on tablet casino games can enhance gameplay”.


Simply put, gambling software works better in the form of a mobile application than it does as a PC software client. Samsung Galaxy pokies offer a more interactive and immersive game play experience, and there’s no argument that it’s more convenient to play on a mobile device or tablet. With that in mind, the developers of traditional online pokies software have spent the last few years molding their downloadable clients into smaller, more sophisticated mobile apps.


Where are all the Samsung Galaxy Pokies?

Despite the overwhelming statistics that point to mobile gambling as the imminent future of the iGaming industry, only about 5% of online casino operators have elected to supplement their PC platforms with a mobile betting application. However, the number of available Samsung Galaxy pokies is rising with each passing week as more software developers are making mobile casino apps available to their licensees, and in turn, more operators are opting to integrate the increasingly popular service.


Microgaming was the pioneer of the both online gambling (1994) and mobile gambling (2003). Thus it should come as little surprise that leading iGaming software company now offers the largest number of Samsung Galaxy pokies on the Australian market and beyond. Spin Palace Mobile and Ruby Fortune Mobile are prime examples, launched in 2008 and 2010 respectively, each boasting an abundance of 41 games that range from mobile pokies, to blackjack, to video poker. Both sites accept Australian players and AU$ through multiple deposit methods, and their mobile casino apps are available for download on all Android Smartphones.
