For many years now online casinos have become known as the trendsetter of gaming and technology. Thanks to their stiff competition, innovation and developments are constantly a number one priority for major operators. These 2018 online casino trends are just some of what the gaming industry has in store for their millions of fans.
Casinos have been looking at the video game industry and realized that the number of gamers who enjoy skill-based games is on the increase. They used this data to come up with a range of new games which, like poker, are heavily dependent on a player’s skill, rather than just luck. These new games, which will include slots, will be targeting new online casino players.
Blockchain And Cryptocurrency
Much has been said about the speculative prices of cryptocurrency, but behind the scenes, there has been a great development in terms of using these digital coins to improve the gaming experience. Blockchain technology is already being utilized today, through the use of smart contracts, which help make games more secure and fair. Similarly, the use of cryptocurrencies has allowed charges for deposit and withdrawals to be all but eliminated.
In tandem with the video game industry, online casinos have seen the potential that VR offers in terms of realism and excitement. With a growing popularity of live games, VR will provide an in-game experience like no other. Thanks to the decreasing cost of VR equipment it is not difficult to see that in the near future many players will have a VR headset at home. By putting it on, they will immediately find themselves sitting down in front of their favorite slot machine or at the blackjack table with their friends to their sides.
Casino players are well known for loving prizes and special bonuses as rewards for their performance. This concept will be pumped up further with the introduction of multiplayer challenges and leaderboard score sheets. The aim is to keep players playing whilst keeping them engaged and having fun.Offer valid as of date published. T&Cs apply.
