It’s no secret that gaming has become one of the most popular hobbies on the planet. No matter what console or computer you play on nowadays, you can still enjoy a vast, never ending selection of games, either made exclusively for a specific platform, or even made specially to be played across different platforms on big online servers. Did you know, however, that there’s a new gaming sector, budding and flourishing into one of the most lucrative and widely available gaming industries ever?

That’s right, we’re talking about mobile gaming, and in this article, we will go through why and how we think smartphones might be a game-changer for the whole global gaming industry.

If there’s one thing we know for sure about mobile games, is that if you have a successful game on PC or console, people are going to play it at every chance they get. A great example would be Call of Duty Mobile, which is a smaller mobile version of the classic Call of Duty franchise. The mobile app might not be nearly as clear and playable as it is on a computer or PlayStation, but it still gives gaming enthusiasts the First Person Shooter fix they need when their general gaming platform is not available. Another great example of this is online casino games, which have moved from just having a browser-based website to making their very own app. This has proven to be so successful, that every online live casino UK based has its own app or is working on one nowadays.

The increase in accessibility

Most avid gamers are well used to playing video games on their home gaming setups, built either in the bedroom, living room, or any other designated gaming area within the house. What they might not be so used to is gaming on the go. Granted, we did have PSP and Nintendo DS a few years back, and we might have the Nintendo Switch nowadays, which can all be played on a handheld device from anywhere, but none of them starts to offer the accessibility you can get from a gaming smartphone.

Firstly, smartphones are always with you, no matter where you go, even if you don’t use them for gaming, so being able to game properly on them means that you’re going to have a fully-fledged gaming system in your pockets pretty much throughout your whole life.

Unmatched pricing

Not only do you not have to spend an extra penny on a handheld gaming device thanks to having a phone that can run games well, which can save you a lot of money, you can also download thousands of different games off the App Store or Google Play Store for under $5 or even for free on a smartphone.

One might think and ask where the mobile gaming industry makes all its money considering the majority of smartphone-compatible games are pretty much given away, and the answer to that question is through monetized advertising, and in-game micro purchases. These in-game purchases give players the chance to buy special, unique customizations as well as features like power ups and in-game currency boosts.
