Online casino and gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on the reported growth of the mobile gambling market in Japan during 2013.

Mobile gambling in Japan is having a moment, with the market set for further expansion in 2014 after enjoying a great year during 2013. A report from advertising and marketing company CyberZ has claimed that the Japanese mobile gaming was valued at 546.8 billion yen (£3.17 billion) in 2013, which rose from around 311.1 billion yen (£1.80 billion) in 2012. Native applications are apparently responsible for the bulk of this at 317.8 billion yen (£1.84 billion) compared to browser games valued at 229 billion yen (£1.33 billion).

Mobile gaming in general is said to be responsible for a massive 50% of the Japanese gaming industry, which has risen from 30% in 2012 and is the largest of its kind in the world. It has been predicted that the industry will increase to 658.4 billion yen (£3.81 billion) by the end of 2014 and 746.2 billion yen (£4.32 billion) in 2015 and continue growing in this way until at least 2016 at an estimated 823.8 billion yen (£4.77 billion).

Online and mobile gambling experts, Jackpot247, have commented on these predictions with a spokesperson for the company saying:

“Online gambling has become a force to be reckoned with all around the world, and the thriving industry in Japan demonstrates how popular mobile gaming and gambling can be in a country arguably even more tech-savvy than the UK. Also, with native apps being more popular than browser sites, we can surmise that players are choosing to play on mobile devices for more reasons than convenience. Dedicated mobile gambling apps provide a clean, user-friendly experience that can only benefit the online gambling industry in the future.”
