Technology plays such a huge part in all our lives today, and if any industry is looking to expand and develop, then technological research and implementation is always key.
When it comes to industries that operate exclusively online, that becomes even more so.
Online gambling is one industry that is growing at an astronomical rate. Such is its growth, many are looking to it in order to understand how to make a success of an online business. What major sites do is constantly tread the line of the latest technological advancements.
We’ve seen VR make its entry into the industry, while they are always quick to adopt the latest security and safety measures. And there’s no chance of them slowing down either.
Over the next 12 months we expect to see the online gambling industry go from strength to strength, with the likes of bingo, betting and casino really taking their popularity to new levels. And technology will be the main player in that.
So, what do we expect the industry to become over the next 12 months.
The better the technology, whether it be in our mobile devices or the sites themselves, the more accessible they’re going to be.
Our devices are more capable than ever, making playing on a bingo site or casino incredibly easy. What’s more, sites are thinking about their audiences more. Where once bingo would be associated with exclusively females, it’s opened up and now more men than ever are playing the likes of Moon Bingo.
It’s a similar story in casino, with more and more women playing the likes of poker and blackjack. That’s due to marketing and technology making particular games more appealing.
Every year we expect more and more from security, and 2020 will be no different. Cyber security to increase even more next year, making it safer than ever to play, while other areas such as random number generators and such like will continue to advance.
Again, this is only going to breed more confidence in the industry and encourage more players to play.
New Groundbreaking Games
Virtual reality has already made some movement into online casino, but it’s far from a mainstay as it stands. VR headsets are expensive, particularly for the number of games you can actually play.
However, as the tech becomes more accessible, prices will drop and more games will appear. We can expect a little more movement in 2020, alongside AR. On top of this, while we may see virtual poker and blackjack, we’ll likely also welcome new variants.
Slingo bingo was huge in 2019 and there are always new casino variants. We can guarantee there will be no slowing down here!
