Innovative Technology in Online Gaming

New technology in gambling is everywhere, be it an online gaming house. Over the past several years, mobile gambling has been one of the leading driving forces for growth. People are leaving offline gaming for mobile gambling. Nobody ever heard of mobile gambling a decade ago, but now, a thousand casinos offer the games on mobile apps. You can easily check the mobile casino and make money while in transit or as you ride on a bus. France is not an exception. It keeps up with the latest world trends, and its mobile gambling value is growing as well.

However, it is not only mobile gambling that drives the growth of online casinos. There are also a few other factors, such as:

  • Online gaming operators are adopting social media to promote their online casinos and attract new customers who can sign up and enjoy playing on their websites and mobile applications.
  • Artificial intelligence: AI focuses on collecting data concerning gamers’ gaming tendencies and then forming patterns based on them. In order to make them play more, game developers then employ these designs that make the games more interesting to players.
  • The emergence of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies has transformed the gambling experience, making it more interesting for gamers by integrating them into beautiful computerized worlds. These advancements make it possible to transport the mood of a land-based casino directly to your home if you own requisite compatible devices.

However, all these elements have not just promoted growth in the past but will also do so soon.


In particular, the online betting industry in France continues to grow and is expected to reach nearly $4.12 billion by the end of 2024. This is attributed to a number of factors, including the rising trend of mobile gaming, advertisement techniques on social media sites, and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR). These aspects are meant to make gambling more exciting and attract new entrants into the sector, further enhancing its growth rate. As the generation continues to enhance, the destiny of online Gambling in France appears promising, with many new possibilities on the horizon.

Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) Chairman and CEO Alejandro H. Tengco on Saturday hailed Bloomberry Resorts Corporation for its latest luxury development, the Solaire Resort North, which he said is an instant landmark destination in Quezon City.

During the formal opening of the second Solaire-branded leisure and entertainment property in Metro Manila, Mr. Tengco said Solaire Resort North “marks a new era not only for the Philippine gaming industry but also for the tourism industry.”

“This will definitely become a leisure and entertainment destination in this part of Metro Manila,” he said.

Situated on a 1.5-hectare site in Quezon City, Solaire Resort North is the first and only five-star integrated resort and casino to serve northern Metro Manila and adjacent provinces.

Mr. Tengco also noted the huge efforts made by Bloomberry to bring the project to life.

“This jewel was not created overnight; It took years of meticulous planning, hundreds if not thousands of workers toiling day and night, immense resources poured into it, to bring us this development that is a class of its own,” the PAGCOR chief said.

According to Mr. Tengco, by raising the bar incredibly high, Solaire Resort North instantly becomes the benchmark upon which future integrated resorts will be measured against.

“For this we owe our gratitude to the vision and unwavering determination of Mr. Ricky Razon and his entire team,” he said.

“We at PAGCOR, just like Bloomberry Resorts Corporation, are continuously inspired by the hard work and commitment of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., to pursue projects like Solaire Resort North so that we can provide more jobs and better opportunities for our people, especially those in the tourism and leisure industries,” the PAGCOR chief added.

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos led the Solaire Resort North’s inauguration. Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte also graced the event.

For his part, Bloomberry Resorts Corporation Chairman and CEO Enrique Razon Jr. said Solaire Resort North aims to elevate the entertainment experience in Quezon City.

“We hope to serve the burgeoning tourism demand north of Metro Manila and the nearby provinces that are enjoying rapid commercial and residential development. We hope to bolster economic activity in Quezon City by encouraging visitors – both Filipinos and foreigners — to explore and discover the city,” he said.

“We are bringing only the exceptional to Solaire North – from architecture, interiors, accommodation, gaming, cuisine, art, to entertainment,” Mr. Razon added.
