Europe Bets On Mobile Gambling

from the making-life-easier-for-gambling-addicts dept

Just as the US is trying to ban all kinds of online gambling, it looks like Europeans are starting to pick up mobile gambling. For those of you who thought having to wait until you got home to your computer was too long to wait to wager some of your hard earned cash – now you’ll be able to gamble from everywhere using just your mobile phone. Some of the games are more like lotteries, but some are straight wagering opportunities – that even let you make new bets in real time, so people can even place bets on sporting events from the stands as they happen. As you might imagine, those concerned with the compulsive nature of gambling aren’t particularly thrilled about this sort of thing.
