• Taking advantage of technology
Gambling continues to evolve and change with the times. The early 1990s saw the development of online gambling platforms and now there are numerous online casino websites offering a variety of gaming options. So, ‘what’s next?,” you ask. Let’s take a look at how technology is defining gambling today.
Your smart-phone is now a mobile gaming device, upon demand. A gambling experience has left the casino floor and landed in your pocket. With increased WiFi availability, more games are being created or adapted for mobile platforms. As the younger generations start to gamble, skill-based and simulation games continue to become more and more popular
You have seen the game pop-ups on your Facebook® or during YouTube® commercials, these ‘free’ games have engaged multiple generations. Free software with in-app purchasing is changing the way we game. Most of these games allow for a certain number of daily plays, but you are able to buy more chances or turns and are able to pay real money for gaming coins to help you level up. Yes, some people pay money to play games and these ‘micro-transactions’ have created a large revenue stream for game developers.
Online casino apps can be found for iOS and Android. From slots to blackjack, the top mobile casino games are available. Want to create a mini casino experience at your next event? Why not create a ‘Casino Lounge’ equipped with iPads for playing? ‘Pit bosses’ can record player high scores to be entered into a leaderboard, able to be viewed throughout the event. With attendees able to play between sessions for the entirety of the event, winners could be announced and given small prizes for their effort at the closing of the program.
There are many ways to incorporate gaming into an event. With the advances in mobile gaming, all it takes is a little creativity and the right app to create a jackpot experience for your attendees.
