Adobe’s announcement affects mobile gamblers

Adobe recently announced that it will no longer produce Flash for Android smartphones and any other company. The move will impact mobile gambling, but it may not be for the reasons that many are speculating, according to

The reasoning behind the shift is that the developer will be focusing on HTML5, which will eventually make the gaming speed and navigation easier to use while people wager on their smartphones, the media outlet reports.

According to, the new HTML5 will open the door for all new security settings. The more that someone plays their favorites on their mobile, including roulette, poker and slots, they will be able to strengthen their security as the HTML5 overshadows Flash.

"HTML5 is now universally supported on major mobile devices, in some cases exclusively. This makes HTML5 the best solution for creating and deploying content in the browser across mobile platforms," said Adobe’s vice president Danny Winokur. "We are excited about this, and will continue our work with key players in the HTML community, including Google, Apple, Microsoft and RIM, to drive HTML5 innovation they can use to advance their mobile browsers."
