only 21% of the respondents use their phone for business reasons, while a more significant 62% of people use them to play games

Over 80% of commuters are using their mobile phones every day to pass the time whilst travelling, as circulation figures for major newspapers continue to plummet year on year.

A recent survey conducted by the mobile casino site Fortunefrenzy.co.uk found that for 82% of respondents mobile phones have become an essential accessory to help them through the daily journey to and from work.

More than ever we are using our phones to entertain and distract ourselves from the monotony of our journey. Janet Fisher, a regular commuter from Ilkley to Leeds, claims:

“You just don’t see people without their phones. I look around me on the train and almost everyone has their head down, concentrating on their mobiles, with newspapers scattered about untouched.”

According to national daily newspaper circulation figures, since April 2012 readership levels have decreased by 11.5%.

Fortunefrenzy.co.uk asked 2,000 respondents where they use their mobile phones most, and the results interestingly found that we use our phone frequently when there are more traditional forms of entertainment available.

92% of those polled use their mobiles in front of the television, which implies that our increasing use of smart phones may develop our potential for multi-tasking.

In opting for mobiles rather than newspapers or television, respondents were asked what they are chiefly doing on their phones. According to the survey, only 21% of the respondents use their phone for business reasons, while a more significant 62% of people use them to play games.

The results point to the fact that traditional forms of entertainment are in decline, and that mobile gaming is the new way to pass the time.

Graham Brown, Product Manager at Fortune Frenzy said:

“Mobile games have not only become the new distraction for commuters, but for everyone. Newspapers dictate to you what you should find interesting, but with a mobile game, you are in control of what you’re being entertained by.”

Mobile casinos are increasingly offering a fun and interactive alternative for commuters on their journey to and from the office. Fortune Frenzy has the diverse product range that users seem to be looking for, with the additional bonus of being able to play anywhere. The massive range of casino, slots and bingo games to choose from gives commuters an enjoyable and stimulating distraction from the repetitiveness of travel.
