According to the news about the gambling business, gaming providers play a crucial role in the iGaming industry.
Andrzej Hyla, Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan Ltd., has shared his experience in the casino game development sector.
From the casino software provider’s point of view, how difficult is it to comply with regulations of different jurisdictions?
I would say that the biggest hustle in the iGaming business right now is all the certifications and all the regulations, which are changing all the time. Currently, many countries are regulating the gambling sphere, and it adds new problems. Besides, it’s very time-consuming because you need to prepare your content for every market separately. And also, of course, it requires a lot of investment. From the perspective of a game provider, that’s now the biggest challenge.
How do you localize casino games for different countries?
First of all, we try to find an operator who’s already working in the market we’re interested in. We try to speak with them first because no one knows players in the market better than the operator working there. We try to get as much information about the player as possible: his preferences, which kind of games, mathematics, and in-game bonuses are popular in the market. And then, we select games from our portfolio that fit the best to this market. Then we, of course, do the translation of the game and we prepare it according to all regulator’s requirements.
What are the latest trends in slot games development and casino games development in general?
What is very popular right now is the bonus, called “Hold the Jackpot.” Games with this feature are extremely popular now, they are gaining the best results. But I think we have so many game providers in the market that it’s hard to select just one trend.
What is your opinion on blockchain-based casino games?
If there is a need for these games, if there are players who like to play these games and maybe trust them a little bit more, then, of course, that is something that should be delivered to the market.
There is such a trend, and trust is the most important thing here. Many players still think that reputable licensed casinos use some tricks to allow or don’t allow them to win. So, I believe that blockchain-based games provide players an opportunity to check by themselves that everything is really random. And there is definitely a need for such games, there’s nothing to discuss. And players will treat these games with more trust than classic casino games.
