A survey of Bingoport.co.uk's substantial UK member base, has revealed that a substantial 47 per cent of online bingo players own a mobile phone with web enabled technology and while in the past, concerns about data usage costs have limited users' ability and willingness to play online games on their mobile devices, a remarkable 34 per cent of survey respondents claimed that they would happily play bingo for real money on a mobile phone.

Online gaming companies have been swift to advance into mobile technology with casino style games like blackjack, roulette and slot machines readily available on mobile phones in the UK. It would appear that bingo players are not adverse to the idea of playing slots on their mobile phones either, with 30 per cent saying they would play mobile slots for real money.

For mobile developers looking to carve a slice of the online bingo market, what mobile device should they be focusing their attention on? Well, the research shows that Android compatible devices make up 65 per cent of bingo players' web enabled phones, Blackberrys account for a surprising 19 per cent and the iPhone, just 16 per cent.
