The online casino industry is experiencing rapid changes as a result of improvements and new technologies. In all aspects of online casinos, one can see the effect of technology. Online casino games are the area where the new technological changes are most evident. Game manufacturers are integrating innovative technologies like Virtual Reality, blockchain, artificial intelligence, and facial recognition to make online casinos exciting.
- Virtual Reality
Online casinos involve players playing through a screen. Over the years, the graphics of the casino game has improved. It has become more realistic and gameplay better now than at any time in its history. However, there is a problem the current setup of online casinos cannot solve, making players oblivious to their physical environment. No matter how big the screen is, players are aware that they are not on the casino floor but in another location.
Virtual Reality is the solution to this problem. It allows players to get immersed into the game, that they are now aware of their surroundings all through gameplay. Virtual Reality offers a more realistic gaming experience and makes you feel you are a part of the game.
For now, the use of Virtual Reality is limited to third party businesses because of its cost. In the nearest future, with the breakthrough of affordable home Virtual Reality devices, it will become more widespread among online casinos and players.
Blockchain technology is here to stay. The following payment methods (bank transfers, credit cards, and debit cards) dominated the technology of depositing and withdrawing money on online casinos in the past. E-wallets like Neteller and PayPal got added to the payment options.
Now, many online casinos accept cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin for deposits and withdrawals. The decentralized nature of the currency helps protect players’ transactions while making payments. Many new online casinos turn to blockchain cryptocurrency acceptance as leverage against the established online casinos yet to integrate cryptocurrency payments to their banking options. There are also new casinos that accept only cryptocurrencies.
- Facial Recognition
This technology is one of the quickest technological features in the past 18 months. You will recognize this technology from your new smartphones or laptops. Facial recognition has the potential to revolutionize the security architecture of online casinos. Instead of typing in your password, your face can unlock your account. It is gaining increased usage in online casinos. As technology continues to develop, its usage will become widespread and potentially viable for quickening deposits and withdraws.
It also opens room for more personalization options for players. With more advancements, facial recognition can quickly generate accurate player’s images as avatars instead of using custom images. Online casinos can also utilize this feature to give out personalized bonuses and promotions for players.
- Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence has changed the gameplay of online casinos for the better. Before the current wave of artificial intelligence technologies, outcomes were limited for online casino games. The outcomes were somewhat predictable and flowed a sequence. Thanks to AI, the outcomes are now unpredictable and human-like. The advancement is visible; the possibilities of outcomes are limitless and do not follow any pattern. A good example is the advanced Random Number Generator (RNG), which online casinos use to generate their games’ outcomes.
Technology will keep shaping the online casino industry. For as long as there is a new technological development, online casinos will keep adjusting and making room to improve players’ overall game experience. There are so many potentials for Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Facial Recognition and Blockchain to grow bigger with online technology.
