Gambling Trends to Follow in 2020
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

One of the key success factors of any industry is the ability to adapt to the new era. This has become truer in recent years when technology introduces hundreds of new possibilities every day. We have already seen many successful companies that refuse to adapt to change, and we all know how that ended for Blockbuster or Kodak.

Of course, the casino industry, which has benefited significantly from the Internet, is constantly reinventing, and new trends emerge every year that are worth checking out:

Safer Games

Although casino scams are becoming less common, new technologies like Fair Go Casino Login are deployed by the gambling industry to avoid any issue. The main focus of improvements in this area are:

  • Two-factor authentication and advanced login that includes facial recognition;
  • Faster withdrawals;
  • KYC (Known Your Customer) Processes;
  • Legal compliance.

A safer industry works in many ways: new customers check positive reviews online, and current players have more confidence to play even higher.

Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin or Ethereum have been among us for more than ten years, and their technological advances can be used in many industries.

Many casinos, especially those that operate in “gray” markets, have added Bitcoin to their cashiers and process deposit and withdrawals in cryptos around the world. Another great benefit, besides anonymity, is that the transaction fee is meager, which saves money for both players and casinos.

The backbone of cryptos, the blockchain, is also used to develop new casino technologies that make the entire betting process more transparent and secure.

Live Dealer and Exclusive Games

Offering exclusive perks is a global trend, used by many industries, from clothing to gaming. Exclusive games can include unique designs, added prize pools, or even branded games with movies or rock bands.

And there is a trend for those players who like betting but don’t trust online software: live dealer games. The name is very explanatory: casinos organize a location with live cameras and different games (Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, etc.), and gamblers can bet from their place watching the action live.

In 2020, more and more casinos will continue to add live games and more features that will bring casino emotions to players’ homes.

Mobile Gaming

Today it’s common to buy any good from a gadget. No matter what you need, it’s possible to get it using one of many apps available.

Now, virtually all casinos have a mobile client, or at least and HTML5 version, friendly with web browsers. Betting from a smartphone in sports or any casino game is a revolution that has just begun. The challenges are to successfully adapt the games to smaller screens without losing any essential visual element and develop interfaces for touch screens.

Mobile payments are also a dominant trend, so in the short term, casinos can strengthen their relationship with e-wallets to improve the payment speed.

Surely in 2020 and the following years, we’ll witness more changes in the casino industry: new trends will emerge with new tech developments that the casino industry will adapt immediately to enhance the user experience.

Todd Haushalter, the Chief Product Officer of Evolution Gaming, has revealed that Evolution is going to release its most expensive casino game ever. Crazy Time was the most expensive game in terms of money and resources to produce in the company’s history so far.

“I think it’s the most fun casino game ever made. It’s definitely the most expensive casino game ever made – it took the most resources to make it,” Todd Haushalter said.

“It’s just this carnival of activity. It’s like Monopoly, in the sense that it’s a wheel game, but the wheel is just loaded with bonuses that take you off in different directions. There are bonus games in the game and it’s just so cool and so fun – it’s in the true spirit of one of these great game shows; there are just shows within the show. I can’t wait to get it live,” Todd Haushalter added.
