Cyprus is a small island country, situated in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. Though considered part of Europe, it lies close to countries such as Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon. The capital of Cyprus is Nicosia, and the local currency is the euro. The island has a small population for its size of 1.17 million.
Mobile gaming has proven to be extremely popular in Cyprus, but only when it comes to sports betting because this is the only form of legal online gambling activity. In 2019, the number of mobile subscriptions in Cyprus was over 1 million, which is almost the entire population. Additionally, this number proved to be a record in mobile subscriptions in the last 20 years.
But, this is as far as it gets, as the future of mobile gaming in Cyprus really depends on whether online casinos will remain illegal or not. The current situation on this topic does not seem too promising, which is why it is not believed that mobile gaming will rise in the upcoming period.
