We have witnessed many changes in the world of video gaming over the past decade. Now more than ever, people are choosing to play their games online and this has led to the iGaming industry. iGaming is playing or betting on the outcome of a game online. Video gaming, sports betting, online casino games, and online poker are all examples of iGaming but could live casinos be the next wave of iGaming?
You only have to look at the number of different live casinos games available online today to understand just how much the sector has grown in recent years. Playing live casino games against a human dealer [valid where legal] is no longer seen as a luxury at an online casino but more of a necessity. If an online casino does not have a live casino section, it is highly unlikely to succeed and that underlines how vital live casinos have become to those involved in the iGaming industry.
One of the many reasons why live casinos are so popular is because they offer the player an opportunity to play casino games with a real dealer. The dealer is a person located in a casino room or studio and not only deals the cards or spins the roulette wheel but also gets involved in discussions with the players while the game is in progress. The dealer can answer any questions you may have and is always willing to help. In addition, a live casino game can be played by more than one real person, which adds to the feel of being in a real casino. Online poker is a good example, and you can participate in games against players from all over the world from the comfort of your own home. This convenience is what is going to make online casinos the next wave of iGaming.
Live casino developers are not happy with the current landscape, and they are always working to bring fresh and innovative ways to play games online. The introduction of cryptocurrency betting is a good example and online casinos have been working to adopt digital currencies as a form of payment for live gaming, including Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and BitcoinCash. Blockchain casinos continue to increase in popularity, and it will be interesting to see the percentage of people who are choosing to play using cryptocurrency in the next decade.
Virtual reality gaming is another big step for the live casino gaming industry. More online casinos are expected to adopt the VR gaming trend throughout 2022 and having the opportunity to visit a land based casino from the living room will ensure live casinos are the next big thing in iGaming. By using a VR headset, it is already possible to walk into a casino, look around the room and choose a game to play. Video slots and table games are on offer in a VR casino, and it is a fully immersive experience, with sound also playing a significant role.
