Mobile casino games are more impressive, more accessible, and more widely played than ever before, this can’t be denied. And, in fact, the number of players is set to skyrocket, with experts saying that by the year 2020 mobile casino games will be one of the leading money makers on smart phones, if not the leading money maker. This is an impressive statistic, and with mobile casino games already being so impressive, many are asking what the future could possibly hold for the industry.
At present a person can decide that they want to play a specific casino game, take out their smart phone, and play in literally seconds of time. And yes, the game can be played for free or real money, regardless of where the person is, and mostly regardless of what currency they would like to play in. Casino games on mobile phones are now legal in almost every country in the world. So, the question remains, what could casino games on mobile phones possibly hold in the future?
Virtual Reality for the Future
It has already been stated by the top digital casino game developers that virtual reality is the future. And not just for console video games that involve shooting large quantities of bullets, but for casino games as well. Many still think that virtual reality is an obscenely expensive technology at present, accessible only to the wealthy.
And in some regards this is indeed true. The most powerful virtual reality headsets will set you back a pretty penny. There is, however, an alternative that will turn your average smart phone into a virtual reality headset without much cost at all.
Simple headsets utilise your mobile phone and transport you to virtual reality with relative ease. And yes, this is soon going to be possible with some of your favourite online casino games. The headset will have to be paired with a set of motion tracking joysticks in order for the games to be accessible, but these will also be relatively cheap. The first of these virtual reality games are already arriving on the market, and it seems that many games are going to follow suit. It may seem like science fiction, but the future of mobile casinos games is in some part going to be embedded in virtual reality.
Better Graphics, Better Sound
Many mobile phone based casino games are already amazingly impressive, using fully 3D character models and designs, as well as astonishingly immersive interactive soundtracks. But if you thought the industry had hit its peak, you’d be wrong. Casino games on mobile phones are set to improve massively in terms of quality.
For the most part mobile phone casino games are designed to be accessible on as many phones as possible, which means that they are restricted in terms of how impressive they can be, given the current level of average technology. But, as modern smart phones find their way into more hands around the world, these restrictions will evaporate.
Imagine a mobile-based game of poker in the future so real that you’d swear you were sitting at a real table. Imagine the game being voice-activated, and having a lifelike croupier that addresses you by your first name. This is already possible, but the technology has not yet arrived on mobile devices. But it will, it’s just a matter of time. We can’t wait to see the first wave of new generation mobile phone based casino games.
More Options And Variety
A few very popular companies currently dominate the mobile casino game market, and these companies deliver some pretty great games. But the industry is still very young, and many new companies are set to make a strong showing in the near future. This means a lot more games on offer; a whole lot more. And this in turn means a whole lot more options for the average consumer. And who could possibly complain about that? More options are better for everyone.
Most interesting is that many new companies will be looking for a way to make their casino games stand apart, which undoubtedly means that a wave of inspired designs and innovations are going to hit the market. How companies will diversify games is certainly going to be fascinating, since casino games themselves are not that complicated at their core. What features and design choices companies come up with to draw attention remains to be seen, but this is another aspect of the future we are dying to see.
The Future Is Here
2017 is already being slated as the year that revolutionises the online casino game industry, and it is here. Sit back, strap in, and get ready for one hell of a ride, because you can say you were there when the mobile phone revolution hit the world. Not many will be able to make that boast in future generations. Be glad you’re around to see it happen.
