Get to Know the History of Online Casinos
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

As the internet nears its 30th birthday, we have looked at how the online gaming industry has flourished in the short time since its inception. In the early years of the World Wide Web, there was no software or technology in place to accept online transfers, and this took a few years to become usable for mass-market transactions. Although the delay in having suitable software available for gaming companies slowed progress in the early years, the industry soon caught up and expanded at a rapid speed.

The Beginning of Online Gambling
The internet started in the early nineties, and it wasn’t until 1996 that any bookmakers had a website that was capable of taking wagers. There is some contention around which was the first website to make a betting transaction, and many believe it to be Intertops . The first betting transaction that took place was placed on the result of a Tottenham Hotspur v Hereford United football game with the lucky punter making a small profit. There were a few other gambling websites created around the same time. Centrebet was the main competitor and was released in Australia. Many other gambling websites were created over the following two years, and the gaming industry online started to grow in popularity as more people began to use the internet instead of traditional casinos and betting shops. According to Wikipedia, a report compiled by Frost & Sullivan stated that “online gambling revenues had exceeded $830 million in 1998 alone”, and this has continued to grow every year.

Rising Popularity of Online Gambling 
There were over 700 online money casinos located around the world by 1998, and the industry has continued to flourish since those early days. With many countries now seeing the benefits in having a regulated online gaming industry, it has made placing a bet easier, safer, and much more fun. As online casinos continued to grow in popularity, so did the technology and software that the websites use to offer an ever-increasing number of available games. Users can get a guide to the wide variety of games available at CasinoTopsOnline to help decide which online casinos to use, and what bonuses are on offer. There has been rapid development of mobile technology in recent years, allowing gamers to access great casino games through their smartphones and tablet devices. Most major land-based casinos now have an online presence to cater to their customer’s needs.

Regulation of Online Casinos 
In the early years of the internet, many countries struggled to understand how best to regulate the online gaming industry. In 1994 Antigua and Barbuda were quick to allow online gambling companies to operate from their shores. Many of the lucrative markets such as the UK, Australia, Canada implemented regulations in the 2000s which further helped to expand the market. The introduction of regulations protected the consumer and quickly eliminated the number of thefts by out-of-country operated websites. In November 2010 New Jersey became the first US state to allow online gambling, giving players the chance to wager online with state-based gaming companies. Most countries that have a gaming industry now have regulations in place and many countries where gaming is illegal players are still able to use websites based elsewhere.

Continued Development of Online Casinos
As technology keeps improving and competition becomes fiercer, gaming companies are continuing to develop new games to keep their customers loyal and entertained. Players can now play a variety of slot games, including multi-line slots, progressive slots, and classic slots. Online casinos will often have most of the major sporting events on offer, allowing users to place a bet and watch the event through the casino. Recently live play has become exceedingly popular, allowing gamers to play classic casino games against each other in real-time. Additionally, with the increasing prevalence of virtual reality in gaming, you can expect advancements in interactivity in this area as well. Using mobile devices to play games has become increasingly popular, and we have seen many improvements on playability as well as the variety of games available through these personal devices.

The Future of Online Gaming
The future of online gaming will continue to focus on the expanding mobile market as this is where tremendous growth is expected. Naturally, game developers will continue to produce new games that players can enjoy on both desktop computers and mobile devices. When it comes to payments, many of the large gaming companies have already started to accept virtual currency such as Bitcoin, and we will see many more websites follow suit. Gaming against other users will continue to be popular as these games have become some of the most played online, and as internet speeds improve, we will see more players enjoy live games, along with new and completely immersive experiences through the use of virtual reality. From where we’re standing, the future of online casinos and gaming is a bright one indeed.

But the future seems to hold more surprises for the growing esports fanatics. `

Abhishek Aggarwal, the Co-founder and CEO at Trinity Gaming, India’s top gaming talent Management Company have listed down the 5 things that will ensure the growth of esports industry in future:

Introduction of 5G: Accessibility to best technology is crucial in the current era of esports and gaming. Considered as one of the most influential and exciting developments, 5G will offer a faster speed and improved latency, which will give the gamers a more competitive edge. For instance, Telecom giant Airtel hosted India’s first-ever Cloud gaming demo on a LIVE Airtel 5G test network to test the gaming on a simple smartphone at record speed and latency. Response delay, often known as latency frustrates gamers the most. Airtel 5G has demonstrated that it can reduce reaction time from 20 milliseconds to 5 milliseconds. While the latency may or may not impact the casual gaming experience, it affects the efficiency and experience in online multiplayer games such as racing and shooting.
For players it would mean winning or losing a match, and to their audience, it would be the advanced experience. With this, gaming would surely take precedence with a higher bandwidth supporting the esports community to thrive.

Cloud Technology for the Gaming Industry: Gamers/esports community constantly feed in data. This technology comes as blessing to protect the information from getting hacked by an unknown entity. Cloud also allows users to maintain the high quality of the game even while playing in low-end devices.
It has several advantages attached to it and one among them is, even if your system breaks down, you won’t lose your game. With growing smartphones penetration and a vast youth population, 5G-backed cloud gaming could spread to remote areas and offer gamers the right ecosystem to compete and excel in the national and international arena.

Esports in the path to be recognised as a real sport: E-tournaments are taking over across nations inviting ace players to compete and take home a whooping amount of prize money. With time it has got a structure/framework based on which it functions with support from big investors. Their growing power has been sensed by industries and its gradually entering into the mainstream as a serious sport. The latest announcement of 8 esports titles in Asian Games 2022 is being welcomed in the Esports community, only making it more prominent and influential in every aspect.

Brand collaboration with Gaming Influencers: Brand collaboration makes it easier for the esports community to further establish their significance and is a great source to generate revenue. These engagements ensure the brand visibility to their targeted audience in a streamlined fashion and gaining confidence of the loyal supporters of the esports player. This has revolutionized the way gamers are perceived in growing business. Gaming content creators are becoming an effective tool to reach the audience. Content creators not only play the games but they entertain their audiences as well, their fan following is mostly the age group of 15 to 30 which is the most targeted audience in advertising terms. Out of all the influencers in the market, gamers are known to have the best audience engagement in terms of viewership and audience-creator relationships. Trinity Gaming is helping Brands to create innovative Branding Strategies with the help of these dynamic Creators and Influencers in the gaming & esports ecosystem.

Content creation around gaming: It is a young concept which has seen the power to engage with viewers and provide entertainment to a wide demography. These creators bring out a more dynamic aspect of esports, share their experiences, do’s and don’ts, etc. and have now become a strong part of the community. They have successfully grabbed the attention of viewers who are not even part of the gaming ecosystem, making it more diverse and relatable for everyone.
