Top two online casino trends you should look forward to in 2018

Virtual Reality, Oculus, Technology, Reality, Virtual


Online casinos have been doing pretty solid business over the past few years. Considering the wide variety of content thatís been produced for them in the year 2017, especially the casino games tied to popular franchises and big-budget film releases, as well as the constantly increasing number of online casino players, things look very bright for them.

People who regularly follow Canadian online casino news would know how the online gambling medium has been consistently growing in that country too. Looking at all such growth, it would be fair to say that 2018 is most likely to be another solid year for the online casino industry overall. Many iGaming events that have been held this year point to that. Letís look at the top two online casino trends you can expect to emerge more strongly in the year 2018.

VR casino gaming

Talking about gaming would be incomplete if we donít mention the growing commercial viability of the virtual reality casino games. Valve Corporationís Steam Digital platform and Oculus (owned by Facebook) are both launching their games that use VR technology. Furthermore, Augmented Reality (AR) technology is all set to drive the solid $ 108 billion virtual reality market by the year 2021, bringing a lot more features to the desktop and mobile platforms.


Roulette, Table, Chips, Casino, Game, Gambling, Winner


All this augurs pretty well for the possibilities of VR online casino games. Such VR experience would greatly enhance the user satisfaction levels and replicate the environment of a real casino for the online players. Microgaming having had showcased their VR roulette demo at the ICE Totally Gaming in 2016, have shown how the leading developers of online casino games are dedicated to this technology.

More live casino games

Twitch, a gaming-based digital platform attracts as many as 45 million people per month to either watch other people play games or play games themselves! Facebook Live has also increased its capabilities, resulting in a 330% increase in the search queries for the term since the year 2016. Money to the tune of $ 50 million has reportedly been spent to celebrities to make them do all kinds of marketing tasks on the platform. Live technology is something that continues to grow and will follow the same trajectory in the year 2018.

When it comes to online casinos, it implies that the ongoing trend of live casino games will not just grow stronger, but would also expand into new dimensions. Apart from offering more varieties of table games in the live format, you can expect altogether new games going live. To give you an example, Dreamcatcher Live can already be played at a large number of online casino websites. It uses live streaming technology where a wheel of fortune kind of game is presented in real-time by a real host. Companies exhibiting at the ICE Totally Gaming, 2018 are expected to unveil more advancements in the online casino live technologies.
