The relationship between casinos, gambling, and technology has always been an exciting one, with the appliance of scientific breakthroughs pushing the industry onto bigger and better things.
Every year heralds the beginning of new systems and experiences to keep the tables fresh and attractive to new and old players alike. And 2023 promises to be no different, with several developments and trends to watch out for in the new year.
Christopher Mitchell, aka The GOAT, author, host of his own thriving YouTube channel, and the world’s leading pro player and gambling consultant, is an ideal guide to the state of the industry and all the latest improvements coming in 2023.
A New Reality
One of the most interesting advancements and one that is likely to make the most obvious change to the gambling experience — the arrival of augmented and virtual reality.
“This is an especially exciting development for players that prefer online to in-person gaming, their experiences are about to get a lot more fun, interactive, and immersive,” said Mitchell.
Tech fans and thought leaders across the casino industry are speculating that once Apple launches the next generation of VR and AR devices, the heightened reality offered by the technology will send powerful ripples that will change online gaming forever.
New slot mechanisms have been around for a few years, but the launch of the Megaways engine from Big Time Gaming has significantly changed the lay of the land for online slots. These changes have led to some of the most popular slot experiences within franchises, such as Wild West Gold Megaways, Eye of Horus Megaways, and Diamond Mine Megaways.
Galvanized by the heavy competition from Megaways, 2023 promises to be even more thrilling as rival studios take up the challenge to refresh and evolve their own slot systems and experiences. This has already led to the introduction of Cluster Buster, Jackpot King, and Link & Win. Next year promises even more launches to keep players playing and stimulated by creative new modes of playing slots.
The seismic growth of live casino spaces looks set to continue unabated and is an arena of play that developers have become increasingly focused on. “The potential of live-streaming matches beamed directly into players’ homes, and overseen by professional dealers, is the source of much industry speculation, thanks to the almost unlimited ways this could be executed and monetized,” said Mitchell.
Using imaginative themes to enhance the UX, such as the cowboy stylings of Dead or Alive Saloon Live, players can look forward to an endless array of different environments to test themselves and take on competitors.
Gambling Like The GOAT
However the industry changes and adapts to new technology, the fundamentals of gambling will remain the same. No matter who you are, some expert advice on surviving and flourishing as a pro gambler should never be ignored.
Mitchell understands professional gambling more than most, which is how he earned the nickname of GOAT. His career has seen him lose half-a-million dollars before hitting the books and learning the secret to sustained success at the tables, enabling him to bank $100,000 per month and become a millionaire.
To help you find your own success and navigate the ins and outs of professional gambling, whether in real life or augmented reality, here are three pieces of advice from the GOAT guaranteed to put you in control of your fate.
No Family Games
Make no mistake; to become a high roller, you must quit playing with family members. It might seem easy and fun to test your skills in a friendly atmosphere. But playing with loved ones is a distraction. You have long relationships with these people, and whether they are negative or positive, these interactions will mean you are not playing with a professional mindset.
“When you are playing, treat it like a million-dollar business because it isn’t happy hour or a social gathering,” explains Mitchell.
An extension of the above, having a professional mindset is essential if you want to make a living from gambling. You have to enter every game with a clear head, know your limits, and have ice running through your veins.
“Ensure you have a figure of how much money you are willing to lose before you begin and stick to it; once you have hit that figure, simply walk away. On top of that, build a bankroll and set up a bank account that you use exclusively for your game.”
They say there is no substitute for experience. And while that might be true, gleaning wisdom from someone who has been through it all before you means you are further down the highway toward your success.
“If you are in full-time work but want to switch careers and become a pro gambler, you absolutely must pick the mind of a reliable and experienced professional. And with someone like myself, the world’s number one professional gambler and gambling consultant, you have an invaluable resource with an unbeatable track record to mentor you on your professional journey.”
With Mitchell’s advice swimming through our heads next time we hit the gaming tables, we’re sure to have more fun — and feel more informed — while we play.
