Technologies that are changing the iGaming industry

Virtual reality, data modeling and live streaming games are just a few technologies that are changing the industry as we speak

New technologies are changing online casinos as we speak. New possibilities create new options and boost the gambling experience. This article dives into a few technologies that already can be seen at several casinos among other systems and that are interesting, for lack of a better word.

Virtual reality

VR or virtual reality is definitely the most interesting and the most appealing new tech that is added to online casinos. It allows you to enjoy virtual games in online reality. In simple terms, you will put your VR headset on and you will navigate the smartphone or a computer to the desired online casino. Once you are there, you can walk around the casino, touch things, interact with dealers, games, and other gamblers and so much more. Basically, you are getting the same experience as when you are in a brick and mortar casino so you can get a better idea of why this is so interesting.

Just imagine playing a slot like this. You are standing in front of it and you are spinning reels by pressing the virtual button or pulling a virtual handle. Now imagine sitting at a poker table and playing with people from all over the world.

VR allows gamblers to experience Las Vegas-style gambling from the comfort of their home, within minutes. That’s why it is so important and so desirable. We believe that in the near future all online casinos must have and use this tech.

Data modeling and behaviour analysis

Here is one tech that has a huge impact despite the fact you don’t notice it. An online casino will use advanced processes, software, and data science that will track your gambling sessions. They will track which games you like, which bonuses you use and etc. In return, you can expect better gambling.

What this means is that you can expect tailored games just for you and bonuses that you will just love. Customer support will be more effective and will need less time to solve the problem. Overall, online gambling is becoming more appealing just because each gambler gets all the right things he needs at that right moment. Due to this reason, or better said technology, we can see that online gambling will become more popular.

Yes, we know. Some UK gamblers are worried about privacy and their personal information. This technology doesn’t refer to this matter. An online casino will track what and how you play, not your credit card number, contact info, or other information. As such, there is no need to worry about your privacy or anything similar. Simply enjoy gambling as much as you like.

New types of applications

New applications will allow gamblers from the UK to play games using their smartwatches. Believe it or not, this is possible already. Of course, you cannot play all casino games such as poker due to the small screen. But you can play online slots. You can even play roulette and blackjack. However, it's still a question how gambling apps will self-exclude players as it's completely another system and many sites still don't have it!

This is one of the most interesting and a technology that will have a huge impact in the near future. Over 60 million smartwatches are sold every single year so you can get a close idea of why this form of gambling will be even more appealing and common. Add the fact that most smartwatches have advanced operating systems and touchscreens and you can see that this type of playing games is similar to mobile gambling.

Live streaming games

This refers to live dealer games that are already available at almost any online casino. You will play poker or any other table casino game, or any other casino game in general with the help of a professional dealer. This session is streamed in real-time from a lounge or a studio anywhere in the world and you get the same or at least similar gambling experience as at a brick and mortar casino.

These games will become more popular and more advanced very soon. We can expect to see a better user interface, better graphics, and more options. We can even expect to see more games of different types.

This is a wide area of casino games and we can see countless sub-types. For example, we can see skill-based games played. We can see streamed games that require you to complete a mission in order to win a prize. These are not luck-based games you play already. They are something completely different which attracts the huge attention of the players from the UK and the rest of the world.

All of these technologies and even more are already present but not widely as you may think. They will become available at almost all online gaming sites any time soon so you have a few reasons more to be happy and intrigued. When paired together, these systems will transform online gambling and make it more advanced and more special while providing more options for all types of gamblers.
