Technology applied to games of chance

Technology is one of the main tools available to bookmakers to continue to grow in the industry. For example, today what you see on favorites wouldn’t be possible without his help.

And it is that well-used technology can improve and make life easier in all its aspects.

In the case of gambling, it is estimated that in 2019 the industry moved 2,580 million euros to the Spanish market, one of the most interesting in the world.

The growth of gaming in Spain and around the world is mainly due, among other things, to technology. To be more precise: the technology that makes it possible to create online gambling sites.

Over 20 years ago, in order to enjoy a few rounds of slots or roulette, you had to go to a physical casino, knowing that in many cities there weren’t any.

Today, this is no longer necessary. First, casinos came to computers, from which you could play as long as you downloaded software or a program.

However, the revolution has happened with mobile devices. Adapting betting house platforms or developing applications for tablets and smartphones.

Now people can play wherever they want because they can take the online casino with them in their pocket.

But the operators do not stop there and in a market as demanding as Spain, they cannot afford to remain stagnant. Thus, they take advantage of each technological advance to apply it to betting.

Live online casino

Imagine the possibility of playing in a physical casino, but without having to leave the comfort of your home. This is already possible with live online casinos or live dealer casinos.

Online casinos have real stages, dealers and tables that simulate the experience of live betting.

The games can be viewed by the player via a live streaming service with high definition cameras and audio that transports you to the environment of a traditional casino.

Evolution Gaming is one of the leading companies in the development of products for live gambling.

Safe play

Technology has also been of great help in making the entire betting ecosystem in Spain safer.

An example of this is the famous random number generator, which seeks to give transparency to the game by preventing the results from being manipulated. This system is periodically audited by the Spanish authorities.

There is also encryption or encryption software that prevents the player’s personal and financial data from falling into the hands of third parties.

Another example of this is the verification process which prevents minors and people who gamble from registering.

Casinos and cryptocurrencies

This technology is not yet applied by betting sites that operate legally in Spain, but it is only a matter of time for them to do so, as long as the authorities allow it.

There are already gambling sites around the world where you can deposit and withdraw money using cryptocurrencies.
