Mobile gaming continues to “lead the way” in the igaming sector according to BGaming’s statistics from the third quarter, which highlighted it as the most popular method of gaming.
Exceeding both tablet and computer gaming, BGaming’s figures revealed that almost 95 per cent of its players chose to play its titles on their mobile devices, compared to nearly three per cent for computers and two per cent on tablets, respectively.
Additionally, BGaming noted that it witnessed a rise in young adults playing its slots, with nearly a six per cent rise over the past year.
“When composing the road map of our games, we always rely on the analytics that our
team collects,” stated Marina Ostrovtsova, executive director at BGaming. “Of course, we strive to meet the needs of different generations, but it is important to be flexible and notice any changes in the market on time.
“So, for example, we see that the demand for exclusive products is growing. The audience wants to see unique games created according to their requests. And this is what we are working on, producing brand exclusive games for operators.”
Over the past several months, BGaming has been analysing current trends within the igaming sector to determine the latest and most influential change to the market.
Another one of these trends comes in the form of cryptocurrency, which the company stated “wins the market” after 2021 saw an explosion of digital currency across every aspect of life. This is no different to the igaming industry, with suppliers, including BGaming, introducing crypto into its titles.
Noting the forever popular Bitcoin continuing to be the most popular form of crypto, BGaming pinpointed the rise of Litecoin across Q3 – increasing by 49 per cent – and revealed that the company calculated a 108 per cent increase in the use of Tether across its brand’s slots during the third quarter.
Bogdan Gres, brand team lead at BGaming, added: “Being the world’s first igaming provider to offer cryptocurrencies, we draw particular attention to crypto gambling. BGaming widens its network of crypto projects and we see the results.
The number of explosive winnings on crypto projects has significantly risen over the past few months.”
Onto its own catalogue of titles, BGaming stated that Aloha King Elvis was the fastest growing slot of 2021 and has “almost” caught up in popularity with its predecessor – Elvis Frog in Vegas.
On the title, Gres concluded: “We wanted to continue the story of cue Elvis which has already become a symbol of BGaming. The game met our expectations. Moreover, new features such as buy bonus and chance 2.5 added in October also stimulated popularity growth.”
