The future of gaming industry according to most of the conference panellists is the convergence between technology and gambling service. This fusion will bring challenges and opportunities in several aspects such as regulation, responsible gambling, competition and responsible innovation.
Crypto gambling is seen as the next big thing and the professionalisation of eSports and increases introduction of AI in gaming software will dominate the business, say all the experts.
The keynote speakers unanimously underline one big topic – the gaming industry will change dramatically in terms of player acquisition strategies. The companies now should start focusing on creating the brands, which people will love and will stay with. The old acquisition strategies are dying out and the first companies to realise this and adopt the new reality will dominate the market.
