Revealed on this page are ten of the most popular casino trends to watch in 2023. The iGaming industry, in general, is constantly evolving, and some of the biggest changes are more noticeable at online casinos.
Major developments in technology are helping to advance the online casino industry like never before, and some of the major trends we are seeing are faster and more secure payment options, enhanced website security, an exciting new range of cutting-edge live dealer games, and more feature-rich slots being released.
We have also noticed much bigger progressive jackpots as more people play, and there are more people playing from their smartphones than ever before.
Other emerging trends are the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the use of blockchain technology and crypto at some sites, and even developments in the VR and AR (Virtual and Augmented Reality) sectors. Take a closer look right here at some of the biggest casino trends in 2023.
There are many emerging new casino trends in 2023, but here are just ten top casino trends to watch for this year instead of listing them all. They include the following:
There has been a huge boom in the iGaming industry in recent years, thanks to faster internet speeds and state-of-the-art smartphone and tablet devices enabling online gamblers to log into their account from almost any location.
This has led to a rise in online casino players, online bingo players, online sports bettors, and more people getting involved in various other legally permitted online gambling activities, such as online poker and online lotteries.
The sheer volume of people signing up to online casinos to check out the best casino games means more people are playing the progressive jackpot slots, so the bigger the jackpots are climbing.
Each time one person takes a spin in the real money mode on a progressive jackpot slot, a small percentage of their wager will automatically be added to the jackpot. Take, for instance, the WowPot Jackpot from Games Global.
As of May 18th, 2023, this life-changing progressive jackpot is worth over $/€/£27,608,997/65 (and climbing by the second). It’s the biggest an online jackpot has ever climbed and eclipses the previous world record online jackpot payout by around $/€/£10,000,000.00.
In other words, when someone next wins the WowPot Jackpot, which can drop at any moment, they will automatically be recognized as the biggest online jackpot winner in history. They will end up featuring in the Guinness Book of World Records.
It’s not just online casino operators getting serious about responsible gambling. Operators of all other fully licensed real money gambling sites also seem to be actively involved in doing more to promote responsible gambling.
Players, especially at UK-licensed online casinos, now have access to even more ‘safer gambling tools’ than ever before. Players are now actively encouraged to set deposit limits from the moment they log in to their new online casino account.
As well as setting deposit limits, which can lead to a much safer and far more enjoyable experience, players can now set things like session time limits, spending limits, and even win/loss limits in some games.
We have seen a sharp rise in players spending more time in the live dealer casinos playing state-of-the-art live dealer games from companies like Evolution Gaming, Playtech, and Pragmatic Play.
These interactive games enable you to chat with dealers and other active players in real time, and the games keep improving dramatically. Some of the emerging live dealer casino trends in 2023 are a live dealer online slot machines and television game show-themed live dealer games.
If you want to play a live dealer game, you must be at least 18 years old. These games are only accessible in real money because they are too expensive to run in practice mode.
Some of the hottest new live dealer games that are now widely available to play in 2023 are the following hit titles: Funky Time Live from Evolution Gaming, Live Jet Set Racing Roulette from Playtech, Live Mega Fire Blaze Blackjack from Playtech, and Live Adventures Beyond Wonderland, which is also from Playtech.
