The casino industry is not one that likes to stand in one spot for any length of time. It’s a highly competitive business and companies are always out to find something special to ensure their profit figures remain healthy.
To do this, the online casinos have to offer something a little bit different from their opposition. Either that or they have to match the improvements seen at other sites that threaten their share of the market.
Ensuring that you have the top software designers on board is of key importance here. If a site can employ the services of the likes of Microgaming, NetEnt or Evolution Gaming, then that’s a great start.
Take Evolution Gaming for example who have made massive strides in recent years. They just keep on producing top level games and plan on releasing 88 of them in 2022. Their live casinos changed the way in which many people gamble.
The live casinos and gambling in the UK are as close as you can get to the real thing. Little did Evolution Gaming know what was just around the corner. When the pandemic caused the land-based casinos to temporarily close their doors, the live casino became such an important part of any site.
Have you ever played Monopoly? It’s been a popular game for decades, but it’s moved with the times thanks to Evolution Gaming who have produced new-style versions of the game for online casinos. They also specialise in gameshows set in real studios.
Microgaming and NetEnt (now owned by Evolution Gaming) have continually produced games that attract customers to online casinos in their droves. Slot players can play games based on top television shows and movies. Then, just like Monopoly, the likes of roulette, blackjack and poker see new versions of the games created. The variety they provide continues to be extremely popular.
Time doesn’t stand still though and there is the need to produce the games of the future. This is where the metaverse comes into play. Virtual reality (VR) games have already been making their mark at online casinos.
Like every other part of an online casino, the games will undergo development in the future. Putting on a VR headset may make you look a bit silly (just like those 3-D glasses) but there’s some fantastic entertainment coming our way soon.
Millions of pounds will be invested in the metaverse by innovative companies. Entain have already announced £33 million being spent on research and developing new games. It’s likely there be some mistakes made along the way as the search for the best games is made.
Just look at how slot games have developed in the last decade or so. Now imagine playing them with a VR headset, feeling almost part of the action. It’s going to be so entertaining and for the companies that get it right, extremely profitable. All those millions spent on research in labs will have been worth it.
It won’t just be slot games that will provide the great entertainment. Esports are absolutely made for the metaverse. All those battles seen in your VR headset are going to take everything up a level or two. The metaverse is on its way and the way we play at online casinos might never be the same again.
