So, what’s the next generation of social mobile games?
Game experts keep on pushing forward for a more availability of social games, since people tend to like better playing off with friends and known faces, rather than playing all by themselves or with total strangers.
More gambling apps are sure to come, but focused on social platforms and with real-money bets, accepting the fact that people like taking it to the wild side, and knowing that a few bucks may actually bring winnings.
