Never has the market been moving faster than it is right now. With legalization coming to some major countries, we see possibilities that the online casino world will grow unbelievably big within the next couple of years. In countries such as Sweden, new gambling laws will decrease the number of brands in the short term. But we have seen in the UK, for example, that in the long run, it will most probably grow exponentially.
However, what surely is an even bigger change is the US. More and more states are allowing gambling of different forms. A Gigantic market, to say the least, are opening up. And at the same time, the continent of Africa also grows big time.
What changes do we see in the Africa casino market?
This continent is surely growing more and more in many different kinds of markets and has so done for a long time. However, when it comes to the gambling part, we have seen great changes just within the last one or two years. One of the major reasons for this is, of course, the development of the internet. Up until very recently, many countries around Africa haven’t been able to use their computer or phone in the kind of the way the western world is used to. Due to the quick development, they now are. Even though data costs more in Africa than in many other countries, it changes rapidly and becomes faster and cheaper by the minute. Due to this, we see a lot of new brands launching throughout the whole continent.
However, some countries are more at the forefront than others. One of these countries is Nigeria, where we see a lot of designated new Nigerian online casinos coming alive during 2019.
Other interesting signs for future casinos around the world
So, we notice that the United States is coming alive as well as Africa taking giant leaps within the industry. So, what is going on in Europe? By the 1st of January 2019, Sweden requires casinos to have a license to operate on Swedish internet soil. Something that surely change that sparkling market a bit, but we are quite certain that it won’t be to affected by this by the end of the year. In the United Kingdom, there are big things all the time. Recently we read at allnewcasino.com that there are already a lot of new brands coming during the first quarter of 2019 as well as some already established casinos finally get their UK license.
Many casinos expand into more countries, offering their site in more languages. Germany, for example, has seen a giant increase in new online casinos for the last six months. Something that most probably will keep on going during 2019. This is what we hope and wish for the next coming year. We will be back soon with more news and thought. Take care!
