Artificial intelligence is rapidly becoming the foundation of gaming for good reason

A few decades ago, nobody ever thought about everything that a person could access or do from such a small device like a smartphone. And, as many more technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) gain popularity, more trends seem to be ready to reshape virtually every aspect of the future world. AI has a great feature of being integrated into other technologies and, looking into the future through its lenses, leads to certain predictions of what gaming could be like in the next couple of decades.

This new decade will perhaps see a rise in things like driverless cars, screen-free computing, wearable tech and devices, connected homes, 3D printing and cryptocurrency, to mention a few. These technologies are already present in people’s lives; however, some of them are still in the beginning phases. Regarding online gaming, things like the Internet of Things (IoT) can transform how online betting is done. Imagine watching a game from home and wanting to place a bet right away, and having the bet recorded just by saying it out loud to a sensor.

For instance, wearable tech can join augmented reality (AR) to deliver the ultimate high-definition experience. Online casinos could offer gamblers a unique and personalized experience in which they can use watches or smart glasses to move things around in a room or hold the dices or event dice down on a craps table.

Slot machines are one of the most popular gambling activities, and AI has allowed online casinos to develop slots that are evolving into something completely different than the ones found in live casinos. Companies are developing devices that come with interactive features and a narrative to engage gamblers in which they can make use of their skill levels to affect the game. It can get to the point of running competition for a slots machine platform with qualified players and a jackpot prize.

As AI continues to advance, there will be even further integration into gaming solutions. What we are witnessing now is just the tip of the iceberg.
