Inspired by a lucrative casino market, which has expanded beyond Las Vegas and Atlantic City, and talented game developers of Silicon Valley, social media games, such as FarmVille, could be the next popular gambling platform. Many companies in Silicon Valley believe, in the near future, online gambling will be as easy as purchasing an online e-book. Instead of developers making money overseas, transforming online games into potential betting platforms could prove beneficial to tax revenues in the U.S. Juniper Research has also estimated revenues of mobile gambling to reach a high of $100 billion worldwide by 2017.
