The State of Online Gaming in 2016
A lot has changed since we published our handy guide to online gaming, so I think it’s the best time to revisit the question and provide a few updates on the matter. Since 2004, we’ve seen a lot of changes on the online gaming market, with some operators going out of business, others emerging with new concepts, new business plans. And new games have been released, sometimes on brand new platforms.
Online slots don’t show much love for technologies like Java or Flash anymore. All the games you can play on the go at the All Slots Casino are now powered by HTML5, all these great games are available at: http://www.allslotscasino.com/. This makes them completely cross-platform, too – the All Slots mobile casino works great on any smartphone or tablet, no matter if it’s powered by iOS, Android, or even Windows 10. Playing away from a PC has become easier thanks to the emergence of the new standard.
New devices have been released in the last two years, too, which have opened up new possibilities for game developers. Today, you can play your favorite slot machine on a smartwatch, too – at some casinos, that it. Besides, casinos are taking steps toward conquering the latest “must have” tech, virtual reality.
Bitcoin is one step closer to global support
Last year has seen the most famous cryptocurrency of all, the Bitcoin, become a much wider accepted currency. Online payment processor PaySafe Group, formerly known as Optimal Payments, has entered a deal with Bitcoin exchange Bitpay, allowing its users to simply exchange BTC (or mBTC) to fiat currency. This means that players can now use their Bitcoin wallets to top up their All Slots Casino account much easier, through popular eWallet services like NETeller or Skrill.
Progress in the US
Although it might not sound like too much, it’s still an important piece of news for online casino players: the first European casino software developer made it to the US market last year. Although it’s only one state at this point, this means that there is hope for US online casino fans that one day they might not only enjoy the better quality games European developers provide, but possibly even benefit of the better bonuses and benefits they can redeem at the All Slots Casino. More on this next year, after the presidential elections.
Weeding out the bad seeds
Last, but not least, a piece of good news for the whole online gaming industry: last August, one of the most controversial network of online casinos was shut down. Known as Netad Management, the company behind a network of US facing online gambling destinations was destroyed by an investigation that ended with the arrest of its managers. They were involved not only in scamming their players, but money laundering, data theft, and other criminal activities as well.
