Published

Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

On a continual rise since their introduction in the ’90s, the online gambling industry is on track to reach a market size of $77.4 billion by 2026. As a part of this growth, there are a significant number of different career opportunities available on all sides of the iGaming ecosystem. For those entering the career market or people just looking for a change of tack, the possibilities here are profound, covering many different disciplines.

Artistic Design

Careers in graphics design have been much more available in the age of the internet, and this is as true for online casinos as it is for everywhere else. For every game released, for every website that appears online, and for every advertisement that goes live, graphic designers have an opportunity to show their stuff.

For an example of this, consider what a player sees when they play bingo online. The primary focus of these players will be the games like Fluffy Favourites and Primate King, each of which is filled with original graphics and art. From here, moving banners also illustrate individual artistic endeavours, as does the website layout, buttons, and much more. Many sites like Buzz Bingo recognise that design elements are important to players, and will build them intentionally like this so that players have a positive and memorable experience.

 

Game Programming

For programmers, there exists a similarly broad range of career possibilities, though fundamentally these systems focus on the games themselves. At a base level, this means designing games that play properly, but beneath the surface, many more concerns exist. A strong example of this comes in a programmer’s understanding of statistics, where writing code that balances RTP and jackpot payouts is paramount.

This isn’t just a matter of writing code, it can also involve understanding and implementing mathematical concepts, and developing code that is as bug-free as possible. Possible programming careers even extend to testing, where AI needs to be developed and implemented to ensure each game will operate properly over hundreds or thousands of rounds.

 

Website Operations and Security

Holding casinos together are the websites themselves, which are built on the age-old foundation of HTML and CSS technologies. Here, designers need to be aware of aspects like mobile translation, performance concerns, and easily understandable code. In other words, it’s an evolution of a discipline that has existed for decades, only with a far greater concern placed on security than what most websites manage.

Ultimately, two strengths are shared by careers involved with the world of online gambling. The first is that the growing market means demand will be increasing until a popularity plateau is reached. With the recent growth in Asian and African markets, a natural end-point of this growth could be decades away.

Secondly, the evolving nature of online casinos means that those who seek careers in this area are never going to run out of work. Whether creating new games, updating websites, or implementing new security systems, work is a constant battle of staying up to date and adapting to new trends. Job security is an important thing, and online casinos can offer this security in the right circumstances.

 

While we can’t promise that careers in online casinos are being given away, they represent real opportunities for the right people. Whether building a portfolio or finding a perfect home, the potentials of this market are too big to ignore, so if these sound like something you’d be interested in, consider taking a look.
