Over the past few years, mobile gambling has steadily evolved, offering even more options for players. In the beginning, online casinos began to offer a few select games via mobile devices, which only left players wanting more.

The technology trends for smartphone devices in recent years have now led to the ability for the mobile gambling market to expand, with trends showing a 7% increase in growth (see Table Below).  Casinos can now offer even more content online, with live dealer games set to be the next stage in growth for the sector.

Solving Mobile Gaming Issues

As mobile gaming was making its way into the online gambling industry, casinos and software providers were hitting roadblocks. For some games, the screen was too small for players to enjoy the content. Mobile devices might also have lower bandwidth or the games needed further development to be able to operate successful via the device.

Over the past few years, these issues have been improved upon, allowing online casinos to offer mobile gaming in instant form via web browser or application. Android and iOS devices often have an application that can be downloaded to offer gamers the best in online casino game play. The apps provide the same great promotions, games and tournaments, allowing players to enjoy an online casino experience while on the go.

Mobile Meets Live Dealer Online Casinos

Over the past two years, live dealer games have been at the forefront of online casino gaming. Players want to experience their favorite table games as they would if they were at a physical casino location. With live dealer, the online casinos are able to stream footage of game play in real time straight from the table, as players at home make decisions as the game takes place.

Because live dealer games like baccarat and blackjack are so popular, online casinos have now begun to focus their efforts on offering such games via mobile devices. To do this, content has to be streamlined with mobile platforms adapted to meet any challenges standing in the way. Leading interactive provider of live dealer games, Vivo Gaming,  is one company that is focused on creating mobile content that works in the live dealer mobile category.

The company had to adapt in several ways to be able to offer quality mobile options with live dealer games. The screen size plays a major factor, so Vivo decided to develop a new UI for mobile that operates in HTML5, which helps to preserve functionality without cutting down on the overall player experience.

A Look at Key Online Casino Industry Trends

Because mobile gaming continues to become a more popular option for players, trends have begun to emerge. While live dealer is the top option when it comes to game play, another key trend right now is cryptocurrency usage. Players have really taken to using cryptocurrency with their online game play and with mobile gaming, players want the same convenience.

Players want access to cryptocurrency for their mobile gaming needs, due to the added layer of protection as well as ease of use. Online casinos have noticed the cryptocurrency trend and are adapting their banking options to include such cryptocurrency options as Litecoin and Bitcoin.

As 2018 ends and 2019 emerges, we are sure to see even more trends created involving mobile casino gambling, particularly with live dealer games. Operators and software developers will continue to find new and exciting ways to bring casino content to mobile devices.

Slotegrator Launches New Platform for Online Casino Operators

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Slotegrator has announced the launch of a new platform that includes a wide range of functions for online casino and sportsbook operators. The product was released on May 16.

The technologies included in the modern microservice architecture of Slotegrator’s new platform have improved the product and provided the company’s customers with a higher level of service by optimising speed, security and stability. The project launch process for operators has been significantly accelerated — a typical launch will take no more than a few days, and the requests of end users, online casino players, will be implemented in the shortest possible time.

The new platform gives the operator more opportunities for integration with various systems, including game content developers, payment services and mobile applications. The user-friendly interface of the back office and intuitive dashboard make the onboarding process as comfortable as possible for operators. The adaptability of the back office for tablets and smartphones is provided for managing projects from anywhere in the world.

Slotegrator’s longstanding clients are already using the product. The features retained from the previous platform have been upgraded. For example, the bonus module has been improved in terms of UI — now it is much easier to create bonuses In addition to modules from the previous platform that were updated and transferred to the new model, the new platform has new tools and modules — in particular:

Casino Builder, which allows the client to make various changes to his gambling site using simple tools. From the back office, the operator can independently build a lobby and fully customise the frontend of his project, making it easier than ever to create its layout by choosing how to display providers, banners, etc. There is also a set of ready-made casino front-end presets for deploying the project in 3 clicks.

The business intelligence (BI) module, which gives the operator access to the site’s analytics, such as key markers like GGR, unique players, marginal profit, and number of active users for a selected period of time — per day, week, month, or year. By comparing performance over different periods and analysing the current situation, the operator can easily make the right strategic decisions and increase productivity. The module is constantly being developed, expanded, and supplemented, providing more and more opportunities for the most effective project management.

A separate KYC module, which helps make the player verification process smoother and more consistent.

The launch of the new platform is an important event for Slotegrator. A number of additional key improvements are planned in the coming months after the launch, which will facilitate the work of all operators. The system is unified — when a developer updates services, customers immediately get access to these updates — so, all operators use a single version of the product.
