Looking back at 2018, it’s clear that the iGaming industry has nothing to complain about. It has grown incredibly with profits shifting from £27 billion in 2015 to an estimated £33 billion in 2018.

So, what has changed? Well, the gaming industry decided to embrace new technology, partly because innovation in this space cuts operating costs while enhancing the gaming experience. And from the feel of things, this strategy is paying off big time.

Improved Security

Online casinos have always had to deal with increasingly sophisticated fraudsters. These encounters end in expensive chargebacks and increased card processing payments, which are no good for business.

This is where fingerprint login comes into play. It’s a frictionless, flexible and secure solution that works across all devices, so no more password tools or copy-pasting usernames and passwords. That, coupled with artificial intelligence, makes a solid fraud prevention combo.

Virtual Reality And Live Gaming

When it comes to improving user experience, nothing works better than human touch. Live gaming combines the convenience of virtual casinos with the interaction of their brick and mortar counterparts. This explains why the trend looks set to continue to soar in 2019 and beyond.

Another hot trend in the online casino scene is VR. You can think of it as a replica of land-based casinos, where you can open virtual doors and walk into a room with your favourite table games and machines. But the best part is, you’ll never have to deal with clogged devices, long queues or handle buckets of change.

However, this luxe comes at a hefty price as it requires substantial investment in hardware for both the player and casino. But that’s a teeny price to pay for a VIP gaming experience without ever leaving the couch.

Blockchain Casinos

Though relatively new, blockchain casinos are the real deal. They bring anonymity, transparency, and security to online gaming. And these perks have captured the attention of the entire industry.

These casinos transact in cryptocurrencies, with Bitcoin being a favourite, probably because it enjoys unwavering support from the crypto community. But they also accept Dogecoin, Ripple, Dash, Litecoin, and Ethereum.
