Mobile Gambling Boom in 2010

A forecast recently made in the United States regarding the mobile gambling market for 2010 stated that it will reach about 12 billion US dollars. The forecast was made by a Juniper Research report which stated that it will reach this incredible level thanks to the ever increasing popularity of the action payment technology in addition to several key markets in the relevant legislation on the lenient policy to bring action in to the gambling industry.

For this year, it is estimated that more than 380 million users will populate the mobile gambling market and this increasing tendency will be kept in the years to come. The Juniper Research report emphasized that the gambling operations conducted in the Far East have been developed to a certain level; European countries are also gradually used in the gambling industry. The market will be further developed due to the lax legislation and considering a long-term perspective, the United States of America market is a remarkable market as far as the potential is concerned.

This report conducted by Juniper Research also noted that the forecast gambling action services from the overall income in 2007 of only 106 million US dollars will increase to an incredible 32 billion dollars. In the present, United Kingdom is the world’s largest mobile gambling user but predictions state that US will reach number one in 2012.

Another major reason why the mobile gambling is currently expanding at a very high pace is because the global smart phones shipments will exceed the notebook computers sales in the next 3-4 years. According to a recent conducted In-Stat market research report, in the next few years, the global smart phone sales will grow more than 30 percent, but its total share of the mobile phone market will be further expanded in the years to come, which means that the future of its annual shipments will exceed notebook sales.

It is quite obvious that the mobile gambling boom of 2010 is a certain thing if you think of the many online gambling applications developed for almost all smart phone platforms: Symbian, Windows Mobile, Apple, Android and more. The mobile gambling market has developed so high that basically you can find just about everything regarding gambling: casinos, poker, sportsbooks, spread betting and more. Making a simple connection between the smart phone sales boom, the mobile gambling smart phone applications and the variety of gambling types, it is easy to understand why the mobile gambling industry is growing from year to year and still has not reached its full potential.

Poker is the most popular application in mobile gambling thanks to its variety of forms: blackjack, baccarat, craps, single deck blackjack and many more. But all the other forms of gambling (especially sports betting) are continuously becoming more and more popular among mobile phone users from all over the world.

All things considered, thanks to the development of the Internet, mobile phones and technology, the mobile phone gambling market is far from reaching its full potential as it will continue to grow for the next couple of years as it offers many advantages like the possibility to earn money (obvious), gambling “on the go”, anti-boredom solution and many others as well.

Types of Casino Bonuses

So you are looking for an online casino to play with. One thing you may have heard of is bonuses and how they can help ease your mind off the expenditures that you would likely spend on over and over again. However, there are many different types of bonuses available. Find out some of the more popular casino bonuses available to aid you to decide on the best deal for yourself.

A no-deposit bonus would be the kind of bonus that you will get for free without needing to deposit any money into your account. While this may seem like a fake offer, these tend to be real offers as casinos are willing to invest in what may possibly be an addiction to their games. The psychological logic behind this is that once you have tried and tested, you would continue on with them if everything looks fine.

The welcome bonus is the type of bonus that is offered when you visit a web site and decide to load your account for the first time. In a way, they can be known as first time bonuses, and to many, it can be considered one of the best casino bonuses around as online casinos tend to offer a certain percentage of your deposit if you fulfill their minimum required amount. For example, if you need to deposit at least $50, and the web site promises 100% in return, then you would get $100 right away before even beginning to gamble.

There are also the monthly bonuses. As online casinos want to encourage existing players to continue putting cash into their web site, the casinos would give a certain percentage of monthly bonuses to the players who reload their account. This form of bonus is extremely popular in the poker industry.

Apart from that are high roller bonuses, which are the type of bonuses offered to players who spend a huge sum of money on gambling web sites. These bonuses tend to come in a huge sum themselves. However, there is a minimum amount of money that high rollers will need to deposit in order to enjoy this bonus.

Since there are many online gambling casinos available, the competition is on to draw players’ attention to spend their money on their sites. Offering the best casino bonuses around is one of the ways these casinos attract the players.

Casino Players – Say Goodbye to Lady Luck

Casino players, get rid of the idea of luck. There are those who think of luck as some sort of force outside of themselves, perhaps even a personification, Lady Luck, and they believe that if they woo her by carrying enough good luck charms she will come tripping into their lives sprinkling star dust on the Blackjack and Craps tables so they can walk away with a fortune. That’s fantasy. It may work that way in the movies but not in real life.

What will be spoken of in this article can be either accepted or rejected. It’s one man’s way of looking at things. If it’s rejected, there will be no harm done and life will go on. But, for the moment, it will at least be food for thought.

There is no such thing as luck. We bring all things — health, sickness, wealth, lack, happy times, misery — into our lives through our thoughts. There is a Power within you that will not only let you become a winner in casino play but can bring success in any endeavor you choose. All you have to do is learn to bring your thinking into a solid connection with that Power and it will bring about the desired results.

This Power created you, brought you into being–not only you, but every person that is or will ever be, as well as everything that exists, the entire universe with its infinite number of stars and planets, including the small one that we happen to be on. Without this Power nothing would be. This Power is All-Knowing, All-Wise, and its essence is Love. You are connected to this Power. It is in you. It expresses itself through you. This Power transfuses itself to you and wants you to use It to achieve all that you desire in life.

Human beings have used this Power down through the ages to invent every invention that was ever invented, to build every bridge that crosses a canyon or river, to raise every skyscraper that stands in all the cities of the world, to paint every masterpiece of art, to write every book ever written. And this Power is yours to use today to bring whatever you desire into existence.

How? By what process are we able to bring things into being?

We know that although we have but one mind, it has two parts: the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious mind gives us awareness. We are mindful of our surroundings and realize that things are happening. We use the conscious mind to do things. We decide to drive to a casino, step into our automobile and turn the key in the ignition. When we first learned to drive we consciously thought of each action before we did it. We looked at the lever that controls the gear shift and moved it into drive. We studied how much pressure to apply to the gas pedal, how far to turn the steering wheel to round a corner, and the distance our foot had to travel to apply the brake. Now, after driving for so many years, much of what we do has been relegated to our subconscious, leaving the conscious mind free to listen to the radio, and before we know it we are at the casino, barely aware of how we traveled there.

Our conscious mind is at work as we count our chips to see how much we’ve won as we sit at a blackjack table. It considers which video poker machine to play, the Deuces Wild or Double Double Bonus, and it makes a choice. The conscious mind inserts the coins into a slot machine and presses the spin button. It makes decisions, whether to quit play and get something to eat, or to continue. This part of our mind can be said to be the boss because it directs the choices we make. It thinks things through and decides. It is the director, the production manager.

In contrast, the subconscious mind does no choosing whatsoever. It serves the conscious mind. Its job is to produce things. It will produce not only good things but bad things as well — whatever the conscious mind through its thinking directs it to do. The conscious mind chooses and the subconscious mind must respond to that choice. The subconscious has miraculous powers and abilities. It knows how to bring good things into being, is able to materialize success, and it stands ready to produce for the person who learns how to use it.

The creative process consists of believing we can have what we want, asking for what we want, understanding that our subconscious, which operates in the Infinite Mind, can bring what we want into being, and then releasing it to that Power within us so that what we want can materialize.

Some who read this article will be stymied at the very beginning of the creative process. They won’t be able to bring themselves to believe that their mind has the ability to reach out through its thoughts to influence slot machines, dice, or cards. Admittedly, it’s far-fetched, and if a person’s mind can’t accept that possibility, it will never be able to do it. The skeptic has to shift in his thinking from a position of unbelief to at least an acceptance of the idea as a possibility, because all this works only at the level of one’s understanding of how it works and his absolute belief in it. Doubt is a killer. Remain skeptical and you stay where you are, a non-believer, a non-achiever. The choice is yours. Say, “Yes, I believe it is possible. I want this ability to become a winner whenever I step into a casino to gamble,” and you begin a stirring in your subconscious that will lead to ultimate success.

We are immersed in Universal Mind. Our subconscious mind is intertwined with His Mind, and there is a law in life that gives us whatever we believe. All that happens to us is an effect of our thinking. The thoughts we put forth have within them an attracting pull, like the force of a magnet. What makes a loser a loser is that the person approaches his gambling game of choice with a half-hearted hope to win. Hope has within it as much force as some cheap magnet one might find in a game at Toys-R-Us. The pull is not there. As the saying goes, hope and two dollars will buy you a cup of coffee. As you stand in front of a video poker machine or place your chips on the betting circle of a blackjack table, you have to know you’re going to win. The supreme confidence that’s in your conscious mind will drop down into your subconscious, will team up with the Power within you and make it happen. The feeling you will feel as this is happening is called faith. Faith. With faith acting within you while you’re playing, you won’t have to beg, or squeeze to make your good happen. You will be able to relax, because you will be dealing with the Absolute. All Power will take over and winning will become a certainty.

It’s easy to understand why some would scoff at this. You can almost hear their incredulity: “You mean All Power is there with me in a gambling casino? Helping me to win? Ridiculous.”

Where can we go that He isn’t? The poet Tennyson had it right: “Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.” We have been told that the very hairs of our head are numbered. Can you tell us how many hairs there are on your head? All Knowledge knows. The scoffer has but a tenuous connection to the Power. He doesn’t understand who he is, so he has to rely on luck and a rabbit’s foot. It would do well for the scoffer to remember that the rabbit had four of them when he was alive and obviously didn’t fare all that well.

There are some people who declare themselves losers even before they arrive at the casino. How many times have you heard a conversation similar to this:

“Going to Las Vegas, are you?’

“Yep. Got to go make my contribution to pay for their electric light bill.”

What you say is what you get. The subconscious mind is not receptive to comedy. It isn’t a Saturday Night Live audience; it doesn’t know when a person is kidding. It always believes what is spoken because what comes out of a person’s mouth indicates what’s going on inside his head, so it simply picks up on that person’s negative comment, obediently slips into a loser mode and produces what is called for. You should never, ever, say anything that you don’t want to bring into reality. It’s important to eliminate every aspect of negativity in conversations. This isn’t easy to do because whenever two or more people meet in a social atmosphere, the talk frequently turns to the problems they presently have. So watch who you run with. Life is tough enough without surrounding yourself with a circle of bellyachers.

You can have what you want if you believe that you can. Ask for it, accept that your subconscious mind, which is an expression of Infinite Mind, can bring it into being, and then relax and allow it to happen. Expect to win when you visit a casino, know that you will, and you will. Those cards in Blackjack and Mini-Baccarat, the dice at the Craps table, and those video poker machines are under your mental control through the Power within you. That’s guaranteed-not by the author of this article but by All-That-Is.
