Trends in 2016
 

“Since the birth of online gambling, the industry has grown
in leaps and bounds from year to year.”

2016 was no different as many trends took place including the growth of the mobile gambling market. Now, more than ever, users are accessing online casinos via their mobile devices and this trend is expected to continue in 2017. 

Due to millennials taking the casino industry by storm, marketing has had to change in order to appeal to these users and their mobile devices. Market analysists have predicted that this will change the way casinos create content.
 

More women in online casinos

The trend of increased participation by women in online casinos is one that caused quite a stir in the last year. This trend started in 2015 and the number of women gambling has risen to 40% in the US and 49% in the UK.

This increase has also affected marketing and the way casinos are trying to reach new users. There may even be an increase in the creation of women-only online casinos.
 

Extra finance options

A positive addition to the online casino market in 2017 is the arrival of increased payment options. Currencies such as Bitcoin and third-party payment companies are expected to boom this year and offer players even more options than ever before.

These are only a few of the many positive trends that players can look forward as the new year of 2017 settles in. We can only look forward to the future and work towards positive change.
