future of igaming

The future of iGaming is here and it’s powered by technology and talent!

Get ready for the future of iGaming bursting with innovation! Revenue is soaring, with estimates suggesting revenue exceeding £14.7 billion generated in 2023 and millions of adults in the UK participate in iGaming, with a significant portion choosing online platforms. This explosive growth is largely driven by cutting-edge technology and top talent that’s transforming the way customers play.

Here are my top 3 tech trends shaping today’s iGaming platforms:

  1. Live Dealer Experience: Land-based casino enthusiasts used to scoff at online alternatives, claiming they lacked the “real person” experience. The live dealer experience has revolutionised online casinos, bridging the gap between physical and digital gaming. Most online casinos now offer live dealer options, featuring real croupiers dealing cards and interacting with players through video links. This injects a social element previously missing from online games, replicating the thrill of a physical casino from the comfort of your home.
  2. Technology Transformation: Until recently, iGaming was limited by technology. Even high-end smartphones struggled to run complex games, and mobile internet speeds were often sluggish. But times have changed! With the widespread availability of affordable 4G/5G mobile internet, users can now enjoy sophisticated games on the go. Powerful smartphones and fast internet have revolutionised mobile gaming.
  3. A VRtual Future: The exciting world of virtual and augmented reality (AR/VR). Both technologies aim to create a truly immersive experience, transporting players to the heart of a virtual casino floor. With Meta pouring resources into VR headsets, the future of virtual reality gaming looks bright. While still in its early stages, iGaming is already exploring VR’s potential, and rumours that VR experiences will become a standard feature of online casinos in the years to come.
    The relationship between iGaming and technology is symbiotic. Not only are casinos influenced by the latest trends, but the industry itself is an active participant in driving technological innovation. As AI continues to evolve, we can expect the online gaming experience to become even more exciting and immersive.

The Role of Recruitment in iGaming’s Growth

For the technology recruitment sector, understanding these trends is crucial. The iGaming industry’s reliance on top talent means there is a significant demand for skilled professionals. By identifying and recruiting the best developers, designers, and technologists, recruitment partners play a pivotal role in fuelling the industry’s growth.

The biggest driver of iGaming’s growth is a talent migration from traditional gaming. Top developers are flocking to iGaming studios, lured by competitive salaries and the chance to create more immersive experiences than ever before. iGaming is not just about gaming; it’s about creating rich, interactive experiences that captivate and engage players. The arrival of RPG (Role Playing Games) developers brings a wealth of creativity and storytelling expertise. These developers know how to craft immersive worlds and compelling characters – all crucial elements in successful online games.
