Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Holland Casino has reopened its 14 casinos on November 19, after two weeks of lockdown.

It will continue to enforce safety measures including social distancing and increased sanitation. Restaurants and bars will remain closed. The reopening follows a second two-week closure from November 4 following an initial closure from March until July 1.

That first reopening was brought forward after criticism from industry association VAN Kansspelen. However, a curfew was introduced in September, forcing casinos and gaming halls to close by 1 am in many regions.

Holland Casinos’ turnover for the first half fell by 58.7% year-on-year to €146.3m.

New Research Says VR Consumer Content Revenue Will Exceed $7 Billion in 2025
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

A new report from Juniper Research has found that consumer virtual reality content will bring over $7 billion in revenue in 2025, an increase of over 160% on the $3 billion it is expected to generate in 2020. The primary driver for consumer content in this space will be console gamers, which will account for 41% of revenue generated in 2025.

The new research, Virtual Reality Markets: Platform Trends, Market Analysis & Forecasts 2020-2025, expects console content revenue to be buoyed by a presence from larger developers that are often absent in most other VR platforms. The report also notes that standalone VR will be the fastest-growing user base in the next five years; taking over from smartphone-based VR, which will stall, following the exit of Google and Samsung from the market last year. Juniper Research expects mobile VR to decline over the next five years, with only 1.2 million headsets in use by 2025.

Another lockdown has come and gone in the UK and luckily the good news and main difference from the first global shutdown is the continuation of major sporting events, including all racing, taking place behind closed doors. While not only is this good for our own mental health to get through the colder winter days, it is also critical for our industry.

The lack of elite sport throughout March, April and May was crippling for many. AllSported, the leading trading racing trading solution from Racing Post, recently released a research paper – Trading the past for the future – looking at the state of play in the trading industry post lockdown. The paper discusses how the exchanges are playing a huge role in pricing and look at what is next for the trading floor.

The damage from a complete wipeout of sport and of course the wider economic issues resulting from a global pandemic are still to be played out in full. While the gambling world is most definitely not bulletproof to wider economic factors there is a sense that this is not the only cause in the dropoff. As part of the research contributors from Banach Technology and TXODDS, partners in AllSported, take a deep dive into how the pandemic is highlighting changes across the trading landscape.

The paper discusses how horseracing bookmaking is a different beast and the nuances involved aren’t being accounted for with ready-made solutions. The AllSported team spent some time speaking to both operators and platform providers and have come up with what they agree to be the main issues. The panel assembled came up with varying opinions throughout the research paper.

Key researcher and Head of Trading Solutions Alan Casey discussed the depth of the white paper and the effects of 2020 on horseracing trading saying:

‘2020 has been a year like no other but from our research, we’re seeing that this year has accelerated change that was already taking place rather than completely changing the direction of the industry. We now know customers have more time to expect the best customer experience and will no longer accept the norm across any industry and that includes betting.

‘We’ll be discussing the findings at this weeks Betting on Sports America conference and we’re excited to share what we’ve found and how that’s going to shape racing trading going forward.’

Online casino comes with lots of benefits. The rate and size of winning at online casinos are higher than the brick and mortar casinos. Players have the opportunity to shop around for casinos that offer more attractive bonuses and promotions. With land-based casinos, this is almost impossible. With online casino, you’ll find huge collections of games and many opportunities to win. If you’re new to online gaming or you’re looking for better strategies to make more money at online casino games, the tips shared by lvbet.lv in this post will be of great help to you.

Winning Tips at Online Casino Games

  • Sign up with a good online casino

Your gaming experience is determined largely by the online casino you sign up with. You need to research to find a good casino that can offer you everything that will make your casino experience exciting. You should sign up with a casino with a huge game collection. It should also have a transparent and fair gaming system. The payment options and customer supports are also critical things to check out for. Some other things you should look out for in an online casino include the licenses and regulation of the casino, players’ reviews, game options, years of existence, bonuses and promotions, wagering requirements, reliability and reputable, and others.

  • Check out the Offers

Online casinos offer bonuses and promotions to attract and retain players. Although this is a marketing strategy, you can still take advantage of the offer and make some winnings from it. Some casino sites offer promotions and bonuses with minimal requirements. Some others offer free spins to let you try new games. Check out all the offers and settle for the ones that will earn you the best money without much investment.

  • Focus on Games that you’re good at

It’s normal to want to try out new games. However, if you want to make money while playing, it’s better to stick to games that you’re familiar with, especially if you’re playing for real money. You can use free spins to try new games but if you’re investing money, stay with games that you understand. Before you start playing a game with real money, ensure you understand the rules and strategies of the game. Practice as much as you can before you play for money.

  • Give the Big Jackpot a try

Of course, most jackpot games depend on luck but nothing says lady luck can’t smile on you. If you want to make big money at an online casino, jackpots are the best way to get it. However, before you place a wager, understand that the bigger your potential winning, the bigger the risk you’re exposed to. Make sure you understand this before you commit your money.

  • Gamble Responsibly

Don’t gamble with money you cannot afford to lose. There’s nothing guaranteed with gambling. The chances you have to win are the same you have to lose. Therefore, count your cost before you go into it.

Conclusion

Now that you know what you can do to make more money in your online casino games, it’s time to get started. However, always check the wagering requirements of any offer before you accept it.
