It is often claimed by marketeers that online gambling (i.e., the combining of gambling and the Internet into one convenient package) makes commercial sense. Gambling looks like it might make another step towards convenience with the advent of mobile phone gambling. This is gambling on the move, whenever, wherever, with the wireless world of mobile gambling. Since it is somewhat unnatural to always be near a computer, it could be argued that wireless mobile phones are the ideal medium for gambling. Whenever gamblers have a few minutes to spare (at the airport, commuting to work, waiting in a queue, etc.), they can occupy themselves by gambling (Griffiths, 2005a).
