The virtual proxy network or the VPN software has become so much in vogue for a number of reasons and a considerable number of people and organisations across the globe have started using VPNs for their internet activity.

There is no dubiousness that internet, for the most part, is an unsecured network. The internet service provider can track someones online activity, behaviours, and trends online, and sell this information to other companies who can then inundate the user with targeted, niche advertisements for products that they think might allure the user based on their online activity, searches, etc.

It is easily understood that this is actually a gross violation of ones  privacy. Furthermore, depending on ones  location (IP address),  government can enforce ones  ISP to restrict one  from visiting certain websites and so on. While there is a lot happening in terms of the net neutrality movement at present, this will basically continue to be how it is for at least the foreseeable near future. Unless, you use a VPN!

A VPN is a virtual proxy network which can essentially mask your network traffic and the data that you send or receive over the internet. A VPN achieves this by creating an impenetrable tunnel through which your data travels in an otherwise unsecure network. Furthermore, your data is also encrypted and encapsulated in such a way that was someone able to intercept it, it would quite simply be indecipherable gibberish without the right encryption keys. This way, you can keep your online activity private, secure and even safe from potential hackers and cyber criminals.

Furthermore, a lot of VPN software is also able to reroute your IP address from a different location. What this means is that when you make a request for a site xyz.com (which, for example, let us say is banned/restricted in your country), the VPN can mask your IP address to make it look like the request came from a completely different location (a whole new country altogether) and this way, Voila! You can now access a website which is supposedly restricted or banned!

What are the advantages of using a VPN?

Apart from the fundamental and primary purposes that a VPN software serves, there are actually a lot more advantages to using a VPN. As mentioned, a VPN primarily secures your data, keeps it private and also helps you access websites and services which may be restricted based upon location and this is where it becomes especially handy for the online gambler.

However, other advantages to using a VPN includes, but is not limited to

Financial savings – Rids users of costs associated with leased lines, long distance phone calls and support costs.

Network scalability – While making an organisation network vacuumed, isolated and secure may be manageable in terms of cost and maintenance at first, it can become exponentially more expensive and messy as the network grows. However, with a VPN, you can just completely eradicate the cost and maintenance problem altogether.

How VPN can help online gamblers?

Online gambling is restricted and outlawed in several countries across the world. However, in order to actually enforce the restriction, ISPs go ahead and block websites depending on your IP address/location. However, with right use of the right VPN, you can remotely access your favorite online casino or casinos without any restrictions through some random server somewhere else in the world wherein there is no restriction or ban in place.

Furthermore, another inherent advantage of using a VPN is that your activity and identity online will remain anonymous. Which of course is something most if not all online gamblers prefer.

Despite this, the firm, which operated 1414 shops across the UK in the13 week period to September 29, said it had delivered a good performance as the return of live sport accelerated and its retail estate reopened.

The firm, which has 1300 employees in Leeds, said it enjoyed a continued good performance in its International Online business with gaming growing double digits, partially offset by unfavourable sports results.

Ulrik Bengtsson, CEO of William Hill, said: “We are very pleased with the trading performance of the group, which has been borne out of the commitment, resilience and hard work of our teams across the business. I could not be prouder of them.

Online Gambling Platforms Gained Larger User Base With Pandemic As A Driver Of The Global Online Gaming Market 2020

Due to the social distancing restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus outbreak, brick and mortar gambling places remained closed, due to which online gambling platforms gained a larger user base. People were forced to sit at home during the lockdown and this increased internet traffic on all fronts. More people frequently visited gambling websites and thousands of new users registered every day. According to research firm Global Poker, the US has witnessed an increase of first-time online poker players by 255% since the coronavirus lockdowns began. Overall, the poker industry has experienced a 43% growth since April 2020. Some countries saw such increases as an opportunity and modified their online-gambling laws. For example, Belarus legalized online casinos and Armenia made some changes to its existing laws. The increasing popularity of gambling apps and social gambling will propel the growth of the mobile gambling market in the forecast period, and several online-gambling platforms increased their marketing and promotional activities in the form of extra tournaments and bonuses to attract more players as well.

With these drivers and the current situation of the world, the online gambling market size is expected to grow from $58.96 billion in 2019 to $92.86 billion in 2023 at a rate of 12.0%. The market is expected to then grow to $113.12 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 10.4%.

The Business Research Company’s report titled Online Gambling Market Global Report 2020-30: COVID-19 Growth and Change covers major online gambling companies, online gambling market share by company, online gambling manufacturers, online gambling infrastructure market size, and online gambling market forecasts. The report also covers the global online gambling market and its segments. The online gambling market is segmented by game type into betting, casino, lottery, poker, online bingo, others and by device into desktop, mobile, others.

With increasing apps and social gambling, online gambling companies are investing in building mobile platforms for their games to increase accessibility and convenience for users. The availability of smartphones with high-end features such as extended storage, high-end graphics and faster processing speeds at reasonable prices incentivize online gambling companies to make mobile-based applications. Also, mobile gambling offers significant benefits, including more deposit options, loyalty programs, and the option to play with anyone anywhere across the globe. According to App Annie, in 2020, 70% of total gambling revenue is expected to come from mobile gambling.

Along with the ease of mobile apps, companies in the online gambling market are increasingly investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) for improving the overall experience for customers. With the help of AI, personalization for each user is possible as the technology can analyze the preference of the user in terms of game selection and offer a customized welcome page accordingly, helping the user to save time spent on looking for the right game. AI also helps in providing customer support in the form of chat-bots for resolving queries. Behavior patterns and gaming frauds can also be checked, which helps in preventing frauds and locks out scammers. Technologies such as augmented reality and virtual reality are being implemented as well, giving a more immersive and realistic experience to their users.

Beyond such high-tech updates, online gambling companies are using several tactics to gain more users. Some provide F2P (free to play) types of game products, commonly referred to as freemium. These games do not make any money for the company directly, but revenues are made through upgrades and additions of certain features and improvements by the user. The user pays a minimal amount for different kinds of virtual offerings and other game products to improve the gaming experience. This model allows online gambling companies to increase their user base and have more active players on their platforms who would eventually make a purchase. Currently, many online casinos are offering a free play version of some of their games. Companies innovating their platforms according to the increasing number of customers and their preferences will allow the online gambling market to continue to grow.
