The Latest Trends in the iGaming Industry
Individuals who take advantage of the opportunities that iGaming has to offer for ‘fun’ will find that the trends in this are in rapid succession. The existing technology for iGaming is constantly being improved. As a result, this form of entertainment continues to improve in quality and offer more and more.
Another trend is the legalisation of online casino providers in several European countries. The Netherlands is now also among the list of countries where you can legally and safely gamble online. It is then of course interesting to know what the latest iGaming trends are. In this blog, you will find out more about that.
VR stands for “Virtual Reality”. This technology ensures that while playing live casino games, for instance, players feel even more like they are actually in a land-based casino. Through their VR glasses, players can fully enter the virtual reality of the online live casino in 3D.
Blockchain and digital currency
You will also further notice that more and more online casinos are using digital currency. Digital currency includes the various crypto currencies such as Bitcoin. These coins, of which blockchain is the underlying technology, offer players in a live casino a lot of freedom and privacy.
For instance, when using digital currencies, there is no need to further consider exchange rates. Also, transactions with cryptocurrencies involve little to no additional processing fees.
Sports betting, the latest developments
Betting on sports has been possible for years, so it is not a trend as such. What has been booming in recent years, however, is live betting. Technology is now such that sports fans can bet during a match and sometimes even a few minutes before the match ends. Previously, this was only possible before the start of a match or sporting event.
Artificial intelligence (AI)
Artificial intelligence (or ‘AI’, ‘artificial intelligence’) is on the rise. This is also true within the iGaming industry. This technology is mainly used by casino software developers to make games more exciting. In addition, AI also improves player safety in online casinos.
In fact, artificial intelligence makes it possible for an online casino to recognise problematic gambling behaviour of players. An AI algorithm can thus ensure that intervention is made in the context of ‘responsible gambling’. The latter, of course, to help the player keep playing in an online casino ‘fun and enjoyable’.
Technology, the pillar of iGaming trends
Technology, and especially innovative trends in it, has always been one of the main pillars of the iGaming industry. This is because the better new technology is applied, the better the online casino gaming experience becomes.
It is also why this industry is always on the move; it is a very dynamic world. New technologies are constantly providing the iGaming industry with new opportunities and options. The iGaming game developers in particular take full advantage of this.
This comes in handy because the newer generations of players are not content with lower-quality games. So, the latest technological developments ensure that they will always be able to find that high quality in online casinos.
