The #1 Resource for aussie gambling!

Changing technology and the rise of gaming

Mon, Mar 25, 10:58am by Staff Writer

Technological development in casinos and gaming in general once focused solely on personal computers and how they would evolve.

Fast forward 10 years later and a new generation of consoles are available, meaning that a new breed of games are required to appeal to the casual gamer.

The idea of competitive gaming on consoles was dismissed as being optimistic according to BMM Magazine, yet they were proven wrong.

Not surprisingly, mobile devices were never given a chance in this competitive industry and frowned up as gadgets for casual gamers.

Today mobile gaming is big business and some of the most anticipated games are created exclusively for smartphones and tablets.

The modern tablet and smartphone is almost, if not just as powerful as computers and laptops in terms of running quality games.

The main limitation of these devices are their smaller displays, which can make it a challenge for players to pick up some of the more intricate features of games.

Virtual reality technology and the fact modern smartphones and tablets have bigger screens has gone some way to addressing that problem.

Players enjoy some terrific graphics on handheld devices and it improves each and every year.

The most important milestone in the growth of mobile gaming according to BMM Magazine is the use of multiplayer games for tablets and smartphones.

Video games and developers are now confronted with a new challenge, with multiplayer-facing games requiring perfect coordination.

Mobile devices are plagued by less responsive controls and they are not designed for multi tasking.

With the esports gaming industry already huge and growing, it comes as no surprise that video game developers want to expand to mobile devices.

PUBG and Fortnite are two of the game spearheading the mobile gaming revolution in the realm of competitive electronic sports.

The games are delivered through dedicated apps that require fewer resources and can be enjoyed on tablets and smartphones powered by various operating system.

Online casinos quick to react to surge in popularity

Online casinos and social games providers were quick to react to the surging popularity of mobile gaming.

Many of those who play on smartphones and tablets are people who can’t commit a lot of time and resources to gaming.

Instead of purchasing expensive purpose built devices, many prefer the immediate gratification of casual games on mobile.

Social networks provide quick access to hundreds of such games that can be enjoyed for free online and even offline in single player mode.

Slots, table games, video poker and even lottery inspired titles such as keno and bingo can be played on mobile devices with the best casino sites or apps.

In play money formats the casino will replenish virtual currency.

Players also have the option of making a real money deposit.

Regardless of how they choose to play, players can expect to join a vibrant community of like-minded individuals who enjoy this type of online entertainment.

A report published by Zion Market Research outlined an expected surge in the online gambling and betting market in 2019.

With the online gambling and betting market currently accounted for nearly US$46 billion in 2017, that figure is expected to rise to more than US$94 billion by 2024.

Online gambling and betting is an attractive form of gambling given that it can be played at any time and place on a computer, mobile, laptop or tablet.

The rise of cryptocurrencies in recent years is projected to fuel growth in the sector.

They have gained popularity over traditional funding methods that require legalisation to be used.
