Slots play is boring, we have heard millennials say over and over.

Raised playing multi-player video games, living in an ultra-connected world and spoiled with entertainment choices, they are used to share their photos/posts/stories/games/experiences with their community.

The online casino has instead been a solitary experience, which, unsurprisingly, doesn’t appeal to the younger demographic. But the world of gambling is slowly adopting the inspiration from other gaming experiences, such as social, streaming, leaderboards and sharing capabilities, to make online casino a more shareable fun.

  • What exactly are the elements from video games that make the experience so engaging?
  • Can the new reality post Covid19 speed up the adoption of shared experiences?
  • Can the acquisition of NetEnt by Evolution Gaming surprise us all by blurring the product lines in creating innovative solutions aimed for the next generation?

This webinar panel discussion will explore these trends aimed at innovating within the online casino and provide insight from experts within our industry and a wider gaming space.
