The world around us is becoming increasingly “smart”. We have smart phones in our pockets, smart watches on our wrists, and smart TVs in our living rooms. We already have connected thermostats and other smart appliances, and their numbers will only grow in the years to come. For a digital product or service to be successful today, it needs to be “cross-platform” – to be available on as many of the growing number of smart devices as possible. The same is true for music players, video streaming services, and yes – even for games. And the Royal Vegas Casino was among the first to understand this need.
Players at the https://www.royalvegascasino.com/ were among the first to experience mobile casino gaming in the early 2000s. Although it was barely over a decade ago, the devices of those times were far from being as high performance and sophisticated as they are today. Their screens were small, their hardware weak, and their capabilities barely exceeded the minimum. In short, they were not the perfect gaming devices. Some games – with slot machines and other casino games among them – have still found their way to these devices, paving the way for today’s booming mobile gaming industry.
But something changed in 2007. A new device was released that re-defined phones from the bottom up, turning them into pocket-sized computers with huge screens compared to the largest ones available before. The device was the iPhone, and it started a revolution. Services we didn’t even know we needed have emerged and an amazing variety of games were released to be played on its touchscreens.
Given its history with mobile gaming, the Royal Vegas Casino played the part of the pioneer in this changing landscape. As a result, today it has one of the largest library of mobile casino games in the industry, with over 100 titles to choose from.
Today we are witnessing a new evolutionary step in the world of technology. In the last two years, we’ve seen an increasing number of wearable gadgets hit the market. Smart watches are among the most popular – they are miniature computers with touch screens you can wear around your wrist. And last year casino games have broken this frontier, too – the first smartwatch slot machines were released through the same Royal Vegas casino.
This year’s revolutionary gadget is not wearable in the sense the smartwatch is, although you have to wear it: virtual reality. The Oculus Rift was already released, and its competitors – the HTC Vive and the PlayStation VR – are already on their way. And the online gaming industry is keeping its pace: Microgaming, an Isle of Man-based developer, has already showcased its totally immersive virtual reality casino.
Games follow us on any device with a screen. Who knows what the next major gadget will be – and how soon we’ll get to play the slots on them?
