Have ever imagined how life could be if the technology wasn’t there? Technology has refined many sectors since its invention. In recent years, companies in manufacturing, production, and processing have achieved many things courtesy of technology’s power.
The entertainment industry, and to be specific, the gaming industry, has achieved significant milestones in recent times and in the early years when it was starting.
We were lucky to have an interactive session with one of our experts, Carlos Noberg (you can link up with him here), where we tackled many things from the history of online gaming, the changes that have been seen in space, and the future trends.
Here are the ways gaming has changed in the last Decade
The introduction of smartphones has led to a series of changes in the gaming sector. Many players shifted from playing in land-based casinos to online gaming. They started enjoying the convenience that they could not get in the land casinos.
With their smartphones in the pocket, accessing games anywhere at any time became possible. Those who had other responsibilities during the day found a better way of gaming work. Fortunately, the trend has continued, and it has remained a norm among many players.
Introduction of digital game stores
Initially, acquiring your favorite game would mean that you walk to your nearest gaming vendor in Sweden. However, in the last ten years, the trend went away, and a new one came. Online game stores made the acquisition of the games easy.
With a gaming device such as a smartphone or PC, one could connect to the internet and choose the games they want to purchase from the online gaming store. The trend has remained up to date.
Transparency and disclosure have been the driving forces of the digital market space. For instance, you will find casino utan svensk licens, (casinos without Swedish license) but they have made it clear on their websites.
In the past ten years, watching what the game dealers are doing has become possible through streaming sites such as Twitch and YouTube. You can log into either Twitch or YouTube and watch your favorite players and dealers do their thing with a better connection. Live streaming also led to the introduction of video games that changed the industry.
Use of Digital Currency
Digital forms of currency seemed like news to many in Sweden after their introduction. But with time, making payments using Bitcoin and other forms of digital currency became the new normal.
Gambling sites in Sweden that did not like it also began to accept it. Currently, many Swedish gaming sites are accepting the use of Bitcoin as a payment method. You only need a digital wallet to start making payments with it on such sites.
Introduction of gaming Apps
After introducing Pc and Smartphone gaming, many players were still experiencing some challenges in accessing games. It was taking longer for them longer to access the games from the gaming websites.
Fortunately, the gaming providers learned about the challenge and came up with downloadable apps that allow them to access with ease.
Better methods of data privacy
The introduction of gaming websites and apps meant that players could now access the games via their accounts after registering to such sites. The registration policies always require that you provide the site with all the relevant data they need for verification.
Even though verification of identities is a good move, it opened another door for cybercrime. Third parties could access the data easily. But thanks to technology because there is a data encryption method currently that is making information secure.
Virtual reality in gaming has made it difficult for the payers to differentiate if they play in a real gaming environment or on the screen. Through its devices, gaming has become a reality in the past decade. With its continued development, it’s predictable that much more will come from it.
The past decade has witnessed an increase in the number of gaming companies joining the gaming industry. As a result, the level of competition has increased among the companies. To avoid an unhealthy gaming environment, the gaming commissions have stringent measures to streamline the competition and enhance other ethical activities.
Enjoying and trying free games is one of the tips that every new player should try in an online casino. In the past, you had to purchase your favorite game to enjoy it. But in recent years, that changed, and games became easily accessible because others became free.
Besides the original games, there has been the development of new games that make gaming much better.
The above points show that the Swedish gaming industry has changed a lot in the past decade and we expect it to become better in the future.
