What Is In Store In 2017?

Online casinos have already seen an amazing advancement in technology since their original inception. It was not so long ago that if you wanted to play online casino games, you would have been doing so only on a home computer, would have been lucky to have a choice of just a few games, and those games also would not exactly be dazzling. Old online casino games also had minimal to no animations, and utilised only the most basic of digital, repeating sounds.

Today, online casino games have full orchestra soundtracks, dazzling graphics, voice announcers, and the selection of games so large you could all but be overwhelmed. That is to say; it is the best possible time to be into online casino games, and the best part about it is that the advancements have not come close to stopping. Online casinos are about to get a whole lot better, and we can’t wait to see how things pan out. Let’s have a look at some of the advancements that are coming in 2017.

The VR Revolution Is Here

Virtual reality is on everyone’s lips. It’s a seemingly science fiction technology that has become available to the mainstream, and it is already making major waves. Those who have used VR say it is an experience like no other, which is promising news. The only real setbacks have to be the price of a VR headset, and the lack of a good selection of games. 2017 aims to address both these issues in one fell swoop. First of all, powerhouse developer Microgaming has already announced that they intend on releasing VR specific games. The company is known for creating quality online casino content, and have demonstrated a very impressive VR roulette game, so the mainstream VR games they release are sure to be impressive.

Second, VR is about to get a whole lot cheaper. The top of the range headsets such as the HTC Vive certainly give the best VR experience possible, but are currently well beyond the wallet range of the average casino game player. Some, if not all of the new VR games about to arrive, however, will function with a cheap headset that utilises a common smart phone in order to function. A set of motion tracking joysticks will still have to be purchased, however, but both the cheaper headset and joysticks will be a damn sight cheaper than an HTC Vive. VR is about to go truly mainstream for the first time.

Better Games, More Fun

In 2017 online casino games in general are set to take a step up in terms of overall quality. The graphics and sound of your average casino game is already impressive, such as the beloved Thunderstruck 2. But they are set to get even better. As the world adopts faster and more powerful smart phones, so the quality of casino games improves. New smart phone adoption has been increasing rapidly, which means that games are due for an upgrade.

You can expect games to look and sound better than ever before, so much so that your mind might just be blown. The major game creators have already been teasing new releases, so strap in, buckle up, and embrace the new wave of online casino games. Don’t forget that if your smart phone can’t handle the new games, your laptop or home computer very likely will. It’s just a matter of accessing your favourite online casino from a computer as opposed to a mobile phone. Not a bad time for a phone upgrade either, mind you; the prices have certainly come down a great deal. Either way, we can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store.

Better Deals, More Variety

More and more online casinos are popping up on an almost daily basis. It can be a little overwhelming, but it inevitably also means more competition for established websites, which by extension means better deals for the average player. Online casinos will be fiercely trying to carve out their share of the market, and so be sure to bombard players with better and better deals. It will be an inevitably chaotic scene in the online casino industry, but one in which players will be able to snap up amazing bargains.

Our advice is to keep your eyes open, and not be afraid to try out a few new websites. Simply go where the best deals are, and take as much advantage as you can. That’s’ what being a consumer in a growing new market is all about. Sure, it will be sad to see some websites fail, as they inevitably will, but it will also be amazing to see the successful websites grow to become industry leaders. Most of all it will be great to see what new bargains and deals they come up with to get our attention.
