How can you keep up to date with upcoming slots from the biggest casino studios?

Published

on

 

When it comes to playing casino games, slots have always been a big draw. This is especially true in the modern age of iGaming, when online slots are always in demand at internet casino sites. If you like to play slots yourself, you will know the fun and thrills they deliver.

You will also know that the best games usually come from the biggest studios. It is always a major event when any of the top studios release a new game, and slot fans are always keen to know about this in advance. With so many studios and so many upcoming games to keep track of though, it can seem an impossible task. If you are looking for some easy ways to keep up with the freshest slots from the best developers around, then read on.

Casino review sites

Perhaps the best place to start are websites that review the latest slots from the best developers. The slot game previews from latestslotsites.com are a great illustration of this idea in action and show why they are so valuable. This site is not only a trustworthy source of information on the newest slots, but it also makes it quick and simple to get the previews you need in one place. Compared to manually hunting around for these details online yourself, it is much less hassle.

Developers’ own websites

Another handy place to keep an eye on for news of upcoming slots are the websites of game studios. If you like NetEnt games, for example, then looking on its website to see which games it has coming up for release gets you ahead of the game. The benefit here is that you will get details about the upcoming slot direct from the developer and also access information you can trust. However, you might not get as detailed a rundown or as objective a view as from casino review sites.

Stay in touch with your personal gaming network

Just as networking in business can improve your career, using your gaming network to stay on top of upcoming releases is wise. Whether this is in person or online, getting details of new slots from friends can be quick and simple. It can also see you pick up on things that may not be officially announced currently. While you do have to be careful of not being taken in by idle gossip, accessing your own gaming network is another way to stay in the loop.

Keeping up with the latest slot games

Slot games are among the most popular casino games to play – this is certainly true online. This popularity means that there are lots of studios releasing lots of new games every week – such as Tiger Tiger from Yggdrasil Gaming and G Games. Although this is great news in terms of choice, it can make it hard to keep up with slot previews or upcoming titles. If you find yourself struggling with this, then hopefully the above tips will help.

Time to Invest in Crypto? SOFTSWISS 2023 iGaming Market Overview

Published

on

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

In 2023, crypto bets expanded by more than 20%, as reported by SOFTSWISS. The leading technology company, with over 15 years of expertise in iGaming and number one in crypto-optimised software, shares its analysis of the dynamic crypto landscape.

According to industry research, the global iGaming market is projected to double by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate of 11.7%. Revenues are expected to exceed 140 billion euro, with a significant share attributed to crypto gambling. 

SOFTSWISS, as the innovator in crypto iGaming software development, regularly conducts research to track the dynamics of crypto within the iGaming market. Using extrapolation, comparative and correlative analysis, experts analyse the data gathered from over 600 crypto-friendly brands powered by the company.

iGaming Market Overview

Based on SOFTSWISS data, the iGaming market had a stable expansion in 2023. In absolute terms in euro, the Total Bet Sum grew by 38.2% year-on-year. At the same time, the Total Bet Count displayed an even stronger increase, surpassing 51.2%. 

The average bet is slightly decreasing for several reasons. One significant factor is the broader reach of online gaming, fueled by advanced technology and increased internet availability. This trend is more evident in emerging markets like LatAm and Africa, where bets are usually smaller. Additionally, the increasing number of players under 30 with budget constraints adds to the decline in the average bet size.

State of Crypto

The in-depth quarterly analysis, initiated at the beginning of 2022, reveals that fiat bets are undergoing more substantial growth compared to crypto bets. In Q4’23, the Crypto Bet Sum saw an 8.2% rise in absolute terms, while the Fiat Bet Sum surged by 16.4% compared to Q3’23. At the end of 2023, the crypto share in the Total Bets Sum (27.5%)  decreased by 3.9 p.p.

The comparative analysis of the 2023 Crypto Bet Sum against  the previous year shows 21.1% growth. Simultaneously, the Crypto Bet Count increased by 50.5% year-on-year. The growing number of bets indicates rising interest in crypto gaming, but the greater availability of digital currencies may lead to slightly more economical bets.

“The advantages of employing digital currencies, such as swift transactions and anonymity, are key drivers for many players. Given these dynamics, the market demands expanding iGaming projects’ opportunities for crypto players. The in-game currency conversion, for example, allows operators to engage players with cryptocurrency assets in games initially designed for fiat transactions. The projects that embrace such possibilities continue gaining more advantageous market positions,” shares Vitali Matsukevich, Chief Operating Officer at SOFTSWISS.

Crypto Bet Stabilisation

The average fiat bet remained steady at around 0.82 euro throughout the previous year. Despite fluctuations in the average crypto bet during 2023, ranging from 1.59 to 1.88 euro, the changes appear modest compared to the twofold drop observed in the average crypto bet during Q4’22, which reached 1.56 euros. This indicates a certain level of stabilisation in the average crypto bet throughout 2023. 

Vitali Matsukevich, Chief Operating Officer at SOFTSWISS, comments: “The dynamics of the average crypto bet align with crypto market fluctuations. When digital currency values stabilised in H2 2022, the average crypto bet also levelled out. Another thing is that the average crypto bet is almost two times higher than the average fiat bet, which testifies that digital currencies are potentially used by players with higher incomes. Operators should consider this to increase project profitability.”

Cryptocurrencies Rating

The Top Five most operated digital coins in iGaming landscape have remained stable during the last two years. 

In 2023, the cryptocurrency structure looks as follows:

  • Bitcoin – 73.3%
  • Ethereum – 9.9%
  • Litecoin – 6.6% 
  • Tether – 4.6%
  • Dogecoin – 3.1%

In Q4 2023, Bitcoin experienced a slight decline by a 5.7 p.p. compared to Q3 2023. Conversely, Ethereum and Litecoin showed growth of 4.7 p.p. and 2.2 p.p., respectively, during the same period.

Vitali Matsukevich, Chief Operating Officer at SOFTSWISS, summarises: “The digital currencies market is rapidly expanding, with estimates showing over 50% growth in capitalisation in 2023. Despite the risks caused by the high volatility of crypto and its dependence on various factors, using it can bring extra profits for operators. The iGaming industry is promising for investments due to growth in both fiat and crypto markets, but success depends on trustworthy and experienced partners.”
