Last week a British player won £20,000 run by Spin3 but what makes this newsworthy is that he was playing from his mobile phone and not his PC.
Having a mobile phone player win a jackpot from a .mobi domain has increased the visibility of .mobi sites. The .mobi gaming sites are increasingly penetrating the online gaming industry as they improve on accessibilty from anywhere at anytime with mobile technology.
Melinda McGuire, founder of bets.mobi, believes it is only a matter of a few weeks before more jackpot winners from across the range of online gambling games start to emerge from the .mobi community.
"Online gambling has soared in recent years, but the advent of the .mobi domains and the technology to deliver online gaming suitable for mobile telephones and other handheld wireless devices is just going to increase the opportunities for players to enjoy themselves." McGuire also went on to say "It really shouldn't come as any surprise that more and more winners will be from .mobi domains and I only see that proportion of winners increasing and overtaking the traditional .com providers."
McGuire's thoughts are echoed by Matti Zinder at Spin3 when asked he said "Mobile gambling is on its way to becoming the next big hit in the mobile market."
