Customer Satisfaction in an Ever Evolving iGaming Industry
July 11, 2020
The popularity of online gaming and perhaps iGaming, in particular, have seen a rapid, but steady increase in recent years. As popularity increases, so does the requirements to meet the ever-changing demands from players to be engaged and entertained. The customer journey is rapidly evolving, with mobile applications, AI software and augmented reality playing a crucial part in the gaming experience. Besides meeting high requirements from players, iGaming companies need to adhere to local regulations, where the safety of the players is paramount. These challenges need to be met with fast go-to-market strategies and expert technical know-how.
This is easier said than done, and in this blog post, I will explore further some of my thoughts about the iGaming industry, what it means to be operating in a regulated market in Sweden and lastly I will present some of the work that we have done at Gateway Digital.
The Gaming experience
The gaming experience for players has seen a significant transformation in recent years. Thanks to advanced technologies, players are now able to immerse in casino experiences from the comfort of their homes and the connection between players have been enhanced. With the adoption of mobile gaming, virtual reality software, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, the gaming industry is evolving to meet the changing customer needs.
Online casinos have started to implement AI and machine learning algorithms into online betting games, and it is radically transforming the face of the industry. This results in higher engagement levels and increases in revenue opportunities.
The Swedish Regulations for iGaming
There is a growing popularity of online and virtual casinos, and online sports-betting is perhaps the biggest industry in the gambling world today. In Sweden, online gambling is regulated by the Gambling Act that took effect on January 1, 2019. This new law oversees all areas of online and land-based gambling and allows operators to apply for online licenses.
It operates under a legal framework that creates favourable conditions for competitive iGaming operators. The top priority under this act has been the protection of players, wherein operators have the rights to monitor the gambling behaviours of the players and help them limit their gambling. It also has strict rules and regulations in advertising and marketing of gambling. Marketing without license and cheating at gambling is a criminal offence in Sweden. Hence, the focus of the current iGaming industry is on responsible gaming and the security of the players.
With our long experience in the Swedish market, our offerings are fully adapted to the laws and regulations of the local market. The protection and safety of players is essential to long-term sustainable growth, which is why it is a fundamental aspect of all our offerings.
