The Future of Live Gaming

Overview

The global gaming industry has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with many casinos across the globe having to temporarily close their doors. In a post-COVID world when the casino industry finally begins to re-open properly, we wanted to know what you think is going to be the most important live gaming products to aid recovery.

We decided to run a quick poll on LinkedIn with four product choices and EGTs / Multiplayers won with 45% of the vote with Table Games and Equipment following closely behind.

  • EGTs / Multiplayers – 45%
  • Table Games and equipment – 37%
  • Progressives – 13%
  • Other – 5%

In this post we review the changing dynamic of the live gaming environment and why the poll results are not so surprising.

Why are EGT’s currently seen as a key product?

Being able to offer new and exciting games, custom content as well as providing safe and secure environments, is one of the main reasons EGT’s are so popular right now. TCSJOHNHUXLEY’s Qorex Electronic Gaming Solutions offer a platform for multi game content whilst adhering to social distancing. With Qorex EGT’s, a player can purely focus on their own gaming activity at their own terminal, whilst having the benefit of playing multiple live games without having to move around the gaming floor. Terminals are separated by panels/shields and then can be easily and quickly cleaned after each player finishes.

Qorex also provides flexibility for operators as terminals can be networked and configured anywhere on the gaming floor, from as little as one electronic terminal to innovative carousel arrangements and large-scale stadium set ups.

Live Table Games have always been popular, but new technology and innovation is allowing them to be more interactive. 

Casinos are looking to create new ways to entertain players and table games are becoming more innovative with technological advancements.

TCSJOHNHUXLEY has been at the forefront of incorporating cutting edge table gaming technology into traditional gaming tables with Blaze LED Surface Technology and Progressive Jackpots.

Designed to both entertain and inform players during games, Blaze’s illuminated animations also assist with dealer accuracy by making it easier for dealers to remain focused on providing the best possible player experience. Patented game animations provide great attract modes as well as highlighting game status and winning numbers.

Jackpots and Progressives always bring excitement to the gaming floor, especially when there’s a big win. The TCS Jackpot System is built on a platform that can be used for any table game. This provides operators with the flexibility to configure multiple bespoke progressive jackpots and patented mystery prizes which can all be linked to floor-wide mystery jackpots regardless of whether they are the same game type (depending on local regulations). This allows certain jackpots to increment faster and helps create more excitement on the gaming floor.

SO WHAT’S NEXT FOR THE CASINO INDUSTRY?

To successfully evolve we must find ways of creating new and engaging experiences for players, whilst adapting and implementing safer solutions.

Operators are reporting that higher numbers of younger players are returning to casinos post-covid and their focus is more towards live and electronic games rather than slot machines.

What the pandemic has taught us is that there is still very much a need for social interaction which is why TCSJOHNHUXLEY will continue to develop innovative and exciting game content as well as expanding our Qorex game offering.
