HAMPSHIRE, UK: March 5th, 2009 – Acceleration in the deployment of on-portal mobile gambling services, combined with higher-profile activity in the mobile channel from leading casinos and betting firms, is expected to push global mobile wagers to nearly $5bn in 2009, according to a new report from Juniper Research.

The mobile gambling report found that improvements in the user interface of gambling applications and services had already led to a surge in the volume of gambling activity during 2008, and that – despite the global recession – the industry would see further substantive growth in 2009.
