Ever since the casino industry went online it has been growing at a rapid rate. The industry has expanded and evolved and continues to become more advanced as new technology is developed.
There have been so many new developments that it’s almost difficult to keep track of them all. But yet, casinos are still pushing forward with new and innovative techniques. This is all designed to keep us interested and playing more.
So which areas are still undergoing some work and where can we expect to see the biggest changes over the next 10 years?
Virtual Reality Technology
Virtual Reality will transport online casino players into a whole new realm and this industry looks to be the new big thing in casino gaming.
When VR first came out the graphics were not that great. The consoles and other accessories were cumbersome and VR was an expensive option to consider.
As technology advanced so did VR. The consoles became slimmer and can even be used at home at a reasonable cost thanks to headsets like the Facebook-owned Oculus or the Gear VR from Samsung.
VR technology is now finding its way into online casinos and will change the face of the industry. Casinos using VR is in the early stages but as this new technology advances, VR should be the norm for online gaming in the very near future.
Augmented Reality or AR as it is commonly known is different to VR. AR is about creating an experience using the existing environment, while VR creates an artificial environment.
When it comes to casino gaming AR has the ability to bring an online version into your home using wearable technology.
AR casinos are still in the early stages of development. However, as this new technology develops they will become the new future in casino gaming.
Games Based on Skill
Skill-based games seem to be the latest casino novelty. These are a combination of video and casino games making an exciting combination.
Casino games like online blackjack do require skill, but the new skills-based games and technology takes things to another level.
Atlantic City has already introduced these games known as Video Gambling Machines (VGM). The first game launched was ‘Danger Arena’ and players can win using their gaming skills and just a little bit of luck.
VGM’s are a creation from Gameco. They have created stories that will take players to a world of high definition graphics and fascinating characters. This is just one more exciting option that casinos can look forward to in the next 10 years.
eSports or electronic sports has exploded onto the online gaming scene and is an experience that everybody should try at least once. It is a type of competition played by multiple players and teams using electronic systems such as video games and eSport systems.
eSports include multiplayer video game competitions, real-time strategy, fighting, first-person shooter, football games and multiplayer online battle arenas.
These are extremely popular among all ages, but especially younger fans. It is a multi-million dollar industry where eSports teams also play for live audiences in tournaments. There is a lot of money to be made for players but it is also fast becoming a new area to bet. As a result, most bookmakers offer odds on eSports tournaments.
Mobile Casino Technology
The introduction of mobile gaming has changed the way many players enjoy betting and playing casino games. The convenience of this option has taken casino gaming to a whole new level and seems to keep growing.
Mobile casinos will definitely be around in the next 10 years and will be greatly improved with new technology and ways to make casino gaming easier and more attractive to players.
