Technologies are evolving at an accelerated pace, and so does the world of online gambling. Like many other sectors indeed, it needs to change and prove that it is dynamic, and able to concretize new fresh ideas. So, what to expect in 2023? Let’s have a closer look at some of the next year’s more interesting trends.
More room for VR!
The increasing popularity of VR is also conquering the world of online casinos, making them more and more entertaining to the public. Indeed, an increasing number of VR technologies are being developed, pushing online casinos to evolve and integrate them into their game systems. Whether it is headsets, lenses, or more complex accessories such as gun stocks, the ultimate goal of all these tools is to finally elevate the user’s experience to play online slot machines and other popular games, making it uniquely immersive.
All the way to Megaways
Now that the Australian software company Big Time Gaming gave the license to use the Megaways mechanics to other gaming companies, we can expect to find this dynamic and exciting game experience in more and more online casinos. Compared to traditional online slot machines, Megaways slots multiply the ways one can win. Through innovative mechanics involving a six-reel structure (and often including an extra horizontal reel with 4 symbols), they offer the possibility to get from 2 to 7 symbols per reel, making the game incredibly dynamic and ever-changing.
The other side of the (Bit)coin
Cryptocurrencies are enjoying a great moment of popularity, and this resulted in an increased number of sectors and places that are accepting them as a way of payment. Microsoft was a pioneer of cryptocurrencies as a valid payment method to purchase games and updates. This has had a strong impact on the rest of the online gaming world, particularly on that of online casinos, as an increasing number of sites started to welcome cryptocurrencies. So, what to expect in 2023? Considering the current trend and the fact that more new cryptocurrencies have been introduced, we can imagine that more and more online casinos will turn to this payment system.
New and want more! (Slot machines)
Online casinos are clearly trying to target interesting new groups of people, such as young adults. This resulted in a wider number of possibilities and varieties of slots that will hardly stop growing further. Online casinos know that gamers adore variety, and for this reason, they try to integrate as many kinds of different slot machines as possible, to offer the so much desired diversity.
Another thing that we will see appearing are more advanced slot machines, i.e., machines that require a higher degree of ability than the ordinary. This is probably due to the fact that young people are more used to playing video games than the older generations, and hence they desire more intense and game-like experiences even in online gambling.
These are just some of the new things we can expect in 2023, so let’s wait and see!
