When the online wagering industry was launched in 1994, millions of betting fans suddenly found they were able to wager from their homes.
But that was far from the only positive development in store. And a decade later in 2004, the gambling game developer, Microgaming launched the very first mobile betting game.
Savvy betting operators soon realized that catering to clients who preferred to wager on the move was another effective means of ensuring their custom.
