If someone thinks that (although very rich and increasingly developed) mobile games have a future as "younger brothers" of the more titled ones, they are very wrong. Mobile gaming is alive and fighting with us, driven by instant gaming and the RNG genre.
And if the giants come into play, there is none for anyone. Amazon has just appointed the former Blizzard designer (you know "War of Warcraft"?) to develop a new series of mobile devices. Yes sir: Bezos' company's chief iGaming designer will be Kurt Sparkuhl.
Some may not remember his name, but that doesn't change the situation one iota. Sparkuhl brings Amazon over a decade of industry experience.
On the moon. By any means.
In his tenure at Blizzard, Sparkuhl worked on War of Warcraft for about a year and a half, leading him by the hand to the threshold of his next mobile version already announced.
Now, in his new role at Amazon (announced by himself on Linkedin) the iGaming genius will focus on the development of a still top secret mobile project. What will your place of work be? Ask Bezos: with his Blue Origin he dreams of putting his feet on the moon, but in the meantime he puts his hands on it (metaphorically).
Last month, in fact, his company launched its cloud gaming subscription service: and guess what? She is really called Luna. It will bring console-quality games to iOS and Android devices, as well as PC and other Amazon products.
And in Italy?
In the Bel Paese, the ferments are all in the RNG sector, with some important movements in recent times. In fact, NetBet Casino has recently acquired the BetSoft Gaming titles: these are two of the most popular and renowned iGaming groups in the world.
It is no coincidence that the giants of the sector are also coveted by our market: second some recent data, legal operators in our country have reached share 276,8 million euro in GGR (Gross Gaming Revenue, which is believed to be the gaming market indicator par excellence as it measures the real spending of players net of winnings).
NetBet: the offer of games of the well-known online casino is growing
NetBet is one of the best ADM casinos in all of Italy and beyond, with a wide range of games, showing a great commitment in regularly expanding its range of products and services.

In addition, it is optimized to work flawlessly on fixed and mobile devices. Gambling.com provides a detailed NetBet review well-rounded on the gaming platform, products and services.
It goes without saying that both gaming enthusiasts and professionals expect great success from this partnership. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since the times of the board games, right?
How iGaming will evolve
Whether it's the next "space" games from Amazon Luna or the mobile-friendly 3D movie slots from BetSoft and Netbet, fireworks are promised for all Italian and international players. The big giants are coming: iGaming won't be more the same.
Waiting for mobile devices to be joined (and then supplanted, but it takes more time) by a light set of augmented reality headsets as this, with a smartphone, people will take the world with them. Much, much more than any 80s arcade could have given away in hundreds of square meters.
