The social gambling market is still developing so growth over the next few years is predicted to be rapid. According to research from Transparency Market Research, there will be around 44% more social gamers in 2015 compared to 2012.

Gambling online, as a whole, is growing. Between 2010 and 2011, 32% more gamblers hit online casinos and in the UK online gaming now accounts for 15% of the total British Internet market. Smartphones, like Facebook, are becoming more normalised.
