What Have New Casinos of 2021 And 2022 To Offer?
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

Playing at online casinos is not going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, its popularity is growing massively. There are multiple reasons for that: games, services and payment options are better and faster than ever, and new types of features are being launched almost on a monthly basis.

The bonuses and other perks are something that the players around Europe are looking at, but of course there are other features that are important, too. Thanks to the rapid development of technology, players get to experience the fun faster and safer than ever. But what is there to look for? What will the casinos that are being released next look like?

Fast Payments and Reasonable Bonuses

Fast payment options are important. A great example of casino markets with fast payment options as the main selling point at the moment is Finland. New casinos, or uudet casinot, as the Finnish players refer to them, are nearly all supporting netbanking as their only payment method. In Sweden there’s a similar fast option for withdrawals and deposits, there it’s called BankID.

These types of payment options that let players deposit – and most importantly – withdraw money in just seconds, are becoming more common in other parts of Europe as well. Here the development is, however, slightly slower due to the different national banks and their processes.

In the next two years we are expecting new payment methods to be developed and released also for the rest of Europe. Soon fast payments are available to us all, not just the lucky players in the North.

When it comes to bonuses it’s been clear for a while now, that there was a need for more reasonable ones. At some point the industry seemed to be going crazy with bonus offers that went as high as thousands of euros. This was not a sustainable way to get players and since then things have shifted into a more reasonable level. We assume that in the next two years the bonus offers will follow the current level and maybe, if we are lucky, we will also see some new kinds of bonuses being designed.

The Rise of Live Casino

Live casinos have been popular ever since they were first launched. On the other hand, in the beginning majority of the live casino games were traditional table games, such as blackjack, baccarat and roulette. Back in the days there were not that many different types of games, so the popularity of live casinos were not as high as today.Over the past few years we have seen completely new solutions to live casinos: there are fun and exciting, fast paced game show type of casino games, which attract more players from all kinds of backgrounds. Even those who do not enjoy card games are now tuning into the live casino streams, enjoying various kinds of games such as Dream Catcher and Deal or No Deal Live.

In 2021 and 2022 players can expect even more game show inspired live casino products. The main focus shall be in Evolution Gaming and its portfolio. Something great is to be revealed. In fact, something was already revealed at the beginning of summer.

VR Gets Slowly Into Online Casinos

When it comes to live casino games, we certainly have a lot to expect from 2021 and 2022. The first sign of things becoming very interesting indeed, was the launch of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt for live casinos.

This is something that we’ve not seen before: a classic NetEnt character has been brought to life in a fantastic, visually stunning live casino game that comprises the best parts of a slot machine and live games. In addition it can be played with VR glasses, too!

If you are interested in VR and live casinos, be sure to follow our articles closely. We are expecting things to move quite rapidly in the following 9 months or so. The release of Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt is just the beginning. When it comes to Evolution Gaming, there are great things to expect. The leading live casino game provider just acquired another great provider, Big Time Gaming. This will definitely lead to great products that we can enjoy already in 2021 and 2022.

Casino Streaming Develops Further

Live streaming has been a thing for at least a few years now. Twitch and YouTube have a lot of rising stars as we speak, play and let others watch and comment. In the next couple of years live casino streaming is going to take big steps towards being an even more immersive experience not only to the streamer but the viewers as well.

ComeOn Group has already shown great initiative in developing casino streaming services further. This they have accomplished by introducing the markets to a new feature: WeSpin. It’s a feature that lets casino players join forces with the streamers. Here players are able to participate in the streamer’s session with their own bets. Once the session is over, the winnings will be shared accordingly.

Simple Solutions, Happier Players

If we look at what has been happening in the casino industry over the past ten years, we can see huge leaps in technology. This goes for both the game providers with their products and for the online casinos and their offerings as whole. Around five years ago the casino trend seemed to be gamification and massive bonuses, whereas today the movement has been towards more simple solutions both with the design and benefits of online casinos.

Players seem to value simple design with easy features and fast payments. These are something that we will definitely continue to see over the next couple of years throughout the casino markets. Simplicity and fast services will be things that casinos deliver and players expect. This is not a phenomenon seen only in the Nordic countries, but it will most likely scale all across Europe. How will it all unfold? We’ll be watching and reporting closely.
