Online Casino Trends We Predict for 2021

Online Casino Trends We Predict for 2021

The year of 2021 has set off where 2020 left us – with a worldwide pandemic that is keeping countries locked down. However, last year also saw online casinos and other gambling sites maintain a high level of popularity, thanks to people staying at home and entertaining themselves with games. With that being the case, it is likely that these gaming sites will continue to flourish in 2021. So, what sort of trends can we expect for the year ahead?

Advanced Mobile Technology

Mobile gaming has been something that has been available for a few years now. And just like online casinos did, it has gained traction, providing players with the possibility of accessing their favourite games from any location through a smartphone or tablet. Now, it is not uncommon to find a site offering a mobile casino version of its services.

As things stand at the moment, players tend to log-in to their online casino account by entering a username and password. However, with the advancements of technology, it is thought that this will no longer have to be the case in due course.

Could 2021 be the year that facial recognition and biometrics do away with password requirements for casinos? Smartphones already have the capability for users to unlock them with such technology, and it will allow for a higher level of security when it comes to using mobile casinos.

Of course, it cannot be guaranteed that this technology will be put to use in such a way in 2021. It is most definitely on the cards, though.

Virtual Gaming

Virtual reality has been around for some time now, with numerous videos released online of people getting carried away and hitting walls, televisions and more in their gaming moments. And according to various technology producers, VR headsets will soon become quite a famous possession. Brands like Facebook have already picked up such headsets, with that particular social media giant looking at developing an interaction between virtual and augmented reality.

The casino sector has also been putting a lot of time and money into VR development. With VR avatars being used in online video poker games already, which emulate the details of a land-based casinos, it’s likely to not be too long before these headsets become regular options for the everyday player. Several online slots have already been made compatible with the virtual world. Take a look at Gonzo’s Quest from Netent, which had a virtual reality version released in recent years.

And when you consider how expansive virtual reality can actually be, that may pose quite the threat to physical casinos, too. A headset can drop you into any sort of imagined place… a land-based casino can only provide its own surroundings.

Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies

Already, a selection of online casinos exist that support cryptocurrency transactions. There are numerous reasons why players opt to use Bitcoin and/or altcoins for their gaming habits, including the lower transaction fees, anonymity factor and so on. The likelihood is that this particular payment method is going to gain even more traction as 2021 proceeds. Therefore, it is also likely that the number of casinos using blockchain technology will also expand.

Could that have a knock-on effect to standard online casinos, in the same way that VR will have a knock-on effect on land-based establishments? After all, those providing digital currency transactions may find themselves garnering more attention from gamers in the end. Will this lead to all online and mobile casinos starting to support such currencies? You never know; 2021 could actually prove to be the year of the expected cryptocurrency gaming boom.
