Over the last decade or so, online gambling and sports betting have been on the rise. Judging from the popularity of on-site gambling, it would have been impossible to see online gambling becoming this huge, and possibly taking over the entire gambling industry from the traditional trends. There is no doubt, it is only a matter of time before online gambling and betting take over, and on-site gambling become almost extinct. But what can be said to be the reasons behind the rapid rise? Let us take a look.

#1. Internet growth

Even when the internet was developed, it was not developed for playing online games. Whoever tried playing hated the experience as it was based on extremely slow dial-up connections. However, as the internet speeds grew, people began to realize the real potential, and gambling became quite exciting. Companies like Betway diversified their market and started paying attention to developing online casino games. It reached a point where people no longer needed to download games to play, but, rather, they would stream gameplay.

The betting market also grew largely thanks to the advent of the internet. Fans found more opportunities in Betway sports betting as it offered a lot of convenience and a variety of markets for better winning chances.

#2. Competition

Let’s face it, even with the advent of internet technology in the gambling space, people were still thrilled by the light and action in the traditional casinos. Internet-based games and online betting were no match for casinos with regard to the excitement they offered. However, online gambling has seemingly caught up as most of the online games are much better than games played on on-site casinos. Different companies are competing against each other for customers, and that means a better online experience is being created for gamers.

The same way you’ll find millions of online gamblers, there are people betting on sports every week. Technology has allowed fans to bet on sports events happening around the world right from wherever they are, any time they want. Companies have invested in special mobile betting apps that allow for quick registration and instant betting.

With so many sporting events taking place from around the world, betting companies attempt to capture them all for the customers, and that has made online sports betting hugely exciting and rewarding at the same time.

#4. Growth of mobile technology

The numbers are moving towards mobile technology, with the revenue collected from mobile gambling and mobile betting tripling over the last five years alone. Apps developed specifically for mobile betting provide the kind of convenience that had been lacking in the brick and mortar casinos. Fans are able to bet on the go, and there are so many advantages of using the apps over having to go to a casino. Betway allows sports fans to bet on live events, and the best way to access that is through a mobile device.
