Wearable Technology: Untold Potential for Online GamblingPublished November 21, 2015 by Elana K
Wearable technology such as Google Glass and the Apple Watch will open up brand new doors for players who enjoy online gambling.
Wearable technology is not all that popular right now, but neither was the internet when it was first created. Google, Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG and Apple have all tried their hands at some form of wearable technology, but it is taking time until these things become totally accepted by the public.
When wearable technology does become fully accepted, the possibilities are virtually endless - especially when it comes to online gambling.
Online Gambling and Smartphones
You might say that smartphones are the predecessor of wearable technology; they are small, fit in the palm of your hand and offer internet access. And of course, what would smartphones be without apps? Apps are the bread and butter of smartphones, and allow users to perform all sorts of mundane and astounding functions.
The potential of apps was not lost on online casinos, who quickly jumped on the bandwagon to create their own apps. Rich Casino, bet365 Casino and Tivoli Casino are just some examples of online casinos that created mobile sites, allowing players to play instantly on their mobile phones from wherever they are in the world.
Online Gambling on the Apple Watch
Microgaming, ever the pioneer, was the first company to create a five-reel smartwatch slot game app. Today, many gaming giants are following suit, and seeking to adapt their mobile products to be able to be accessed from smartwatches. There is still a while before these things become really popular, but given the track record of Apple’s successes, it seems like only a matter of time before smartwatches become the next big fad. And that means a whole new generation of online gamers will be able to enjoy mobile casino games, not from the palms of their hands, but from their wrists.
The possibilities for online gaming and wearable technology really are endless.
