What are the differences between the habits of mobile gamblers and traditional online players? Two internet game producers, Gamematrix, a research institute, and Greentube, conducted studies to try to find the answer to this question.

While the studies don’t look at mobile gambling and online gambling directly, the data definitely shows us what type of players are play online. As expected, the study showed increasing popularity in playing games, both online and mobile. Between 2008 and 2009, online gamers increased by 30 percent. The study pointed out that in addition to mobile casinos, “mobile games are continuing to catch up” with online games.

According to the study, there are two dominant age groups at online casinos. The study showed that 26 percent of all internet game players are in the age group between 35 and 44 years of age. They also discovered that “online gaming remains more popular with 55 year olds”. For the under 35 age group, mobile games, including mobile casinos, are the most popular. Typically, playing mobile games increases in popularity as the age of the players goes down.

A very important finding for online casino providers is that the majority of players come from disparate income levels: higher income and lower income. Oddly enough, the study showed that middle income level players were “below average” participants. They also discovered that online players have a higher probability to spend.

As a conclusion, the study by Gamematrix and Greentube shows that mobile casino gaming has substantial potential for growth. This means that exciting products are on the horizon for both providers and players.
