Technology has become such a vital and critical tool in our modern world. With an ever-increasing rate of progression and usefulness, it has swiftly merged with almost every aspect of our daily lives.
Recent events around the world have also ushered in an age where the need for technological innovation, and social awareness, has become greater than ever before. Fortunately, for casino-goers, there are some new and exciting advances and possibilities just around the corner.
The Health Factor
Due to Covid-19, the short-term goals of conventional (land-based) casinos, like all responsible businesses around the world, will be prioritizing sanitization, use of masks, and social distancing for now and the near future.
Other long-term solutions will be looking towards ideas such as antimicrobial surfaces for gaming tables, chips, and touch screens, as well as the possible use of hands-free tech.
However, with the steady transition to online platforms over the past decade, there are, coincidentally, some big changes currently in motion, and being planned, for the casino world.
New technologies are now available that could possibly not only help the situation on our changing planet, but also signal a whole new era for the bonus casino industry.
Virtual Reality and Augmentation
VR (virtual reality), and AR (augmented reality), are both hot prospects for the future of casinos. Already in the process of being implemented, within the next few years, VR/AR casino software companies plan to make the first virtual casinos and gaming hubs available to online casino-goers around the world.
The possibilities of this rapidly emerging technology are endless, and the benefits very apparent. Social distancing, personal security and comfort, as well as a highly enjoyable virtual casino experience, can all be addressed by this exciting new tech.
AI & Analytics
Artificial intelligence and data analytics have been around, in various forms of development, for some time now, and has so far proved highly useful in enhancing software functionality as well as user experience.
Now, with the latest generation of AI, predictive analytics, and data modeling technology at the disposal of casinos, everything is set to make the next step in its technological evolution. This will ultimately lead to an all-round, and on-going, improvement in the quality and function of online as well as conventional casinos.
The mobile casino platform has very quickly gained an enormous following over recent years and has in many respects has become the preferred method of gambling world-wide.
With the growing multitude of functions and applications offered by mobile devices, and, so far, unmatched convenience and ease-of-use, it is set to remain a major contender for the future of casino tech.
Blockchain & Cryptocurrencies
With the progress of technology, inevitably, comes the need for ever greater security.
Blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies can now offer an unprecedented level of personal and monetary security during transactions. It is therefore very likely that they will soon become utilised for betting and transactions by casinos and gambling software around the world.
