Consumers might find themselves wishing to sell used phones in order to upgrade to a device that will support their gambling needs.

Andrew Pegler, business development director at Mfuse, said sports betting is currently racing ahead of other forms in terms of popularity.

A number of recent events linked to the rise of smartphones are behind the widespread appeal of gambling via a mobile.

“The first was the introduction of the iPhone in Europe in 2008/2009 and the second was the 2010 [football] World Cup in South Africa,” Mr Pegler stated.

He noted these have sparked a huge increase in the mobile gambling that is carried out.

However, in order to enjoy a flutter on a handset, it may be that consumers must invest in a top model with the latest technology.

One option is the newest Apple product – the iPhone 4S – which was released recently and sold four million units around the world in its first weekend.
