How technology is shaping online gaming

In the past twenty years, we have experienced a huge technological boom. Across almost all major industries, brand new innovations have shaped the world that we live in today. The situation is no different with online gaming, an industry that has massively increased in every way in the past two decades. In this article, we will look at some of the biggest way that technology is shaping online gaming for the better.

Game variety and quality

It does not matter what kind of betting we are talking about, the range that you can bet on and the quality of what it is that you are betting on has undeniably increased. For an example, we will have a look at sports betting, in particular football. Gone are the days when you could just bet on results, goal scorers and number of goals, you can now bet on almost anything: booking points, assists, corners, throw ins, freekicks etc. Not only that, but you can also build your own bet with many bookies, and they will price it up, meaning you can bet on almost anything, including the winners of reality shows, the name of the next Royal baby and much, much more.

So, in terms of variety in online betting, we have come very far but also in terms of quality. Slots have never been as good as they are today, and even games like roulette, blackjack and craps have arguably been perfected.

Payment methods

Technology has had a big impact on payment methods, and this has translated to online betting. Some online sites only accept crypto currencies such as Bitcoin for withdrawing and depositing and others will accept almost anything you can think of: Visa, Paypal, Cashapp and much more. The methods are more secure and faster than they have ever been.

Design

Nowadays, all online sites have been designed carefully and meticulously. No online site can compete with others if they do not have an easy to use and yet aesthetically pleasing interface, and this has come about thanks to the rise of technology. Studies show that we associate different colours with different things, and you may now notice that almost all bookies are heavily associated with one particular colour: green for Bet365, blue for Betvictor and red for Ladbrokes. This is another arrow for their quiver.

Customer support

In recent times, there has been more and more expectations placed on companies giving support to their customers when they have any issues. In online betting, it is now almost expected that each site has a permanent method for helping their gamblers with any issue they might come across.

Most sites have a twenty four hour live chat that gamblers can use to solve their problems. As well as that, it is expected that there is an email and a phone number to call to get an equally fast response. This is all a result of technology’s fast rise and its impact not just in terms of innovation but also in terms of society.
