If you're considering switching to mobile deposits for your online gambling experience, there are several factors you may want to take into account. One of those factors we haven't covered yet is considering what type of player you are and whether the benefits of mobile depositing suit your needs. If they do, then hooray! If not, then maybe just sticking to an e-wallet would be best for you. Generally speaking, mobile depositing is quick, easy and accessible without needing the internet. But if you're a specific type of player, could mobile deposits be the way forward?
1) The Commuter
The most common player who uses mobile deposits is the commuter – the hard earner who takes the train, bus or tram to their place of work. Not only is mobile gambling a great way to unwind after a stressful day (or prepare yourself for one), it's also great at killing time.
Most people, on average, spend and hour or more getting to work. What better way to fill in the time crammed next to the window and unable to move than by having a spot of gambling on your mobile device? This is precisely what it was made for.
And mobile deposits are best suited for commuters for almost the exact same reasons – it's quick, it's easy and it operates solely from your mobile phone. So no need to set up a laptop on the train! And there's no need to worry about its distinct lack of WiFi (unless you're lucky enough to travel on one of those swanky trains that do have WiFi!). So if you travel to work via public transport, mobile deposits are the way forward for you.
2) The Office Worker
While an office worker may spend most of their time in front of a computer or at some desk or other, it's hard to be incognito about your mobile gambling when your colleagues will notice you're neglecting your actual work. Anyway, the company may raise a few eyebrows if they notice you're gambling on your work computer. On your mobile phone, it's much more subtle, not to mention more personal for you. Plus you can do it under the desk in a boring meeting! Not that we encourage that sort of thing…
So if you generally need to be covert, mobile deposits may help with that, no matter where you work. Again, however, we don't encourage you to gamble at work. It can get very distracting. And if you have a lot to do then it's probably best to wait for your lunch break.
3) The Lorry Driver
If your work does involve you being constantly on the road (being either a lorry or taxi driver, etc.) mobile deposits may be a great thing for you. The complete mobility of mobile depositing services accommodates for this lifestyle extremely well, especially when you're away from a computer for most of the day. Sure, you can use an e-wallet or wire bank transfers from your mobile device but those generally require an internet connection and out in the middle of nowhere, you're not likely to get that anytime soon.
It's debatable if you'll have phone signal either but it's still more likely than getting WiFi. Also, you be wondering: if it's not easy for someone like a Lorry Driver to have WiFi, how can they possibly partake in mobile gambling in the first place? Well, you've got us there! But they may have been able to download some games straight onto their phones anyway. So, checkmate.
4) The Student
This one might not seem that obvious at first but when you consider the £30 limit most mobile network companies put onto mobile depositing in the first place, it becomes much clearer. How? Well, think of the £30 limit as a budgetary constraint. If you give a student more budgetary constraints (generally speaking, they have very little money) then they will be more likely to use it. At least, we hope so.
Some might be dubious about the idea that students like to gamble, not only because they don't have a to of money but also because they don't have much time. But you'll be surprised how many that do! It's probably more casual than most other players and done more out of a desperate bid for some cash but done all the same. Anyway, not all students are poor.
