It is so easy to take mobile technology for granted as we use our mobile devices to read, communicate, and play at Jackpot Capital mobile jackpot casino. So, let’s express our appropriate admiration for the technology that has so transformed our everyday lives!
Not at the beginning of time! However, when the first mobile phone came into the general marketplace in 1983, it created a Big Bang of sorts!. That is only 39 years ago by any reckoning!
These early cellular phones, as they were then called, were not smartphones in the modern sense at all. They were giant monsters that had microchip technology that could communicate without wires.
Way back in 1972, the cellular tech was demonstrated to the United States Federal Communications Commission so it took eleven years from that moment to the introduction of cell phones to the general public.
Actually, rudimentary wireless technology already existed in 1894 but there was no infrastructure for cell phones. The infrastructure that was being built at that time was telephone wires connecting everyone to everyone else. Everything was done to make landline telephone communication faster and cheaper.
Touch tone technology replaced rotary phones to the extent that today kids have no idea how to use a rotary phone!
In 1946 there was a very primal form of cellular communication that used radio waves to connect people.
Modern cell phones were still far away and modern mobile casino gaming was even further away.
This phone came into the market in 1993 but it was not very smart by today’s s standards. It also didn’t have the capacity to hold hundreds of apps so the apps revolution was yet to come.
The early smartphones could make and receive calls, could send out faxes (we forgive you if you don’t know what that means), and could provide early email communication.
William F. Buckley, a leading political conservative of the post-World War II era, wrote many books and spoke about “electronic mail” because he used it but it was so new that he couldn’t use the term email!

This great device came into the market exactly 15 years ago! Yes, before that we can say that cell technology was in the prehistoric era. After the iPhone, cell tech boomed.
Even though the iPhone was introduced only in 2007, there was a basic mobile internet way back in 1997. No, we were not travelling by horse and carriage then but in terms of what mobile can do today, including mobile casinos, communication was still in the horse and buggy stage.
When the first online casino came aboard in 1994, there were no mobile casinos. Today we refer to mobile casinos as mobile gaming platforms. They are often run as an app. A lot of people are too young to remember when apps were called applications and people who had never used a cell phone let alone an application had no idea what the term meant!
That technology in communication has exploded in quality and quantity in a single generation is a fact that many people take for granted. It means at a deeper level that nothing is static in the face of technology! Mobile casinos are just one of the thousands of improvements in our daily lives that can be attributed to innovations and inventions in technology!
We have to keep in mind that while today the vast majority of online casino gaming is done on mobile until desktop online casinos were introduced in the 1990s, all casino gaming was done at land-based casinos.
The historical progression can be listed like this:
All of the improvements in mobile casinos can be traced to graphics and animation! The many ways that the wild symbol can act in slots is entirely the byproduct of improvements in graphics and animation!
Land-based casinos can marginally enjoy some benefit from the improvements in graphics and animation. The games played at terminals, especially slots, enjoy the same great graphics and animation that desktop and now mobile casinos enjoy.
However, land-based casinos cannot escape two very important facts about modern life:
All in all, mobile casino gaming seems to be the way to play for the foreseeable future! Here at Jackpot Capital, we have a great mobile platform. Well over half of the gaming done by our gamers is done on mobile!
