Cake Poker Goes Mobile, Pokerstars 20 Millionth Customer + more
Cake Poker Goes Mobile
I don't know about you, but when I am in a pub or somewhere similar and I am waiting for someone to turn up, I get my mobile phone out and pretend I have more friends than I actually have. But now it looks like I can try and win a bit of money instead, as Cake Poker are going mobile. The relatively new poker room are launching a facility for windows based mobile devices to play poker for real money.
A report has suggested that the mobile gambling industry will be worth almost $5 billion this year, despite the obvious concerns of a global recession. It does make sense, online poker made playing poker much easier and more accessible and mobile gaming seems to be the natural progression from that. How sophisticated the games and technology remains to be seen, but this is certainly a sector that has huge growth potential and will be very interesting to monitor over the next few years.
