Posted by sainath on December 1st, 2018

The gambling market has set a new trend of game content through socialization and mobilization. Players use social networks and mobile gadgets to play which helps in cash-less transactions. This has boosted the interaction and communication among people through social games. Also, new regulatory acts adopted by many countries paved favorable conditions for the growth of gambling market. For instance, Free To Play format games are a big hit, which draws more people to join the online gambling industry.

 The chart below shows the year-on-year growth of the global gambling market during 2017 – 2021.

 According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Oliver Guirdham, since 95% of the transactions in gaming are in cash, casinos are increasingly adopting cashless methods of payment as an alternative to cash. With cashless systems, banknotes are replaced by special gaming tickets or cards. These gaming tickets are compatible with video poker and slot machines that can be used to collect more customer data and to understand the purchasing pattern of customers. Many casinos in Las Vegas are using cashless payment systems such as ticket voucher systems and casino club cards.
