The Growth of Online Casinos: live and mobile casino
In the past, if you wanted to play games such as roulette, blackjack
you’d need to make a journey to your local casino. Recent years have seen major changes though and the arrival and continued growth of the internet has seen more and more people playing at online casinos
It’s the ease of being able to place bets on your laptop or mobile devices
that is causing the increase. All that hassle of getting ready for a night out at the casino, then getting there and the taxi home doesn’t exist. You can just settle down in front of your laptop, go to your favourite site and play the many games
that are available whenever you want to.
With mobile phones making massive advancements in recent years, that has also been good news for online casinos. Players can either download apps
or play mobile friendly versions of the online casinos. If there’s a poker tournament
or a roulette
table you want to play in, there’s no need to rush home to your laptop, just use your mobile device to go online and start playing. A whole host of mobile casinos
have hit the market over the last few years, all bringing with them their own unique styles, games and a range of new player casino offers
. Competition is rife among operators and with them all vying for your business, they nearly all offer a fabulous welcome offer
when you join.
There are also plenty of other promotions
available at online casinos. They also offer their customers better odds than the bricks and mortar casinos, so another reason to be joining them.
The online casinos also offer the chance to play variations of popular casino games
. This variety makes playing at the sites even more enjoyable. Then there’s also the growth in the number of online casinos that now include live casino
action. It’s the closest you’ll get to playing at a live casino without having to actually go to one.
Having trust in the online casino is important for their customers. If the online casino you consider joining is licensed and regulated
that increases the trust in that site. Bodies such as the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Authority will license and regulate sites to prevent the possibility of fraud being committed.
A great deal of growth has been seen in the European market. The Asian market is expected to grow considerably in the next few years. In America, they are also getting the licenses and online casinos are also adding sports betting
to their contents.
The growth of the online gaming industry isn’t expected to slow down anytime soon. A report by Transparency Market Research
predicts that by 2026, the industry will be worth $128.2bn. That would be an increase of 11.1% since last year. It includes sports betting but it’s clear that further growth for online casinos is on its way.
