Casino tech is big business, especially now that the industry has moved online in the US states that have legalized gambling. This came right before the coronavirus pandemic and was many casino operators’ saving grace because brick-and-mortar facilities had to shut or face severe limitations on how many guests are allowed in at a time.
With this new market expanding, and many states looking to introduce online gambling as it is a lucrative revenue stream, casino tech companies are busier than ever. Here are some top performers expected to continue their upward trajectory of success in 2021:
NetEnt is a provider of premium gaming solutions to companies that operate a casino online. Its cutting-edge platform makes NetEnt’s games thrilling and unique. The company boasts a staff of qualified, driven professionals who deliver flexible solutions to meet its clients’ specialized needs. NetEnt’s commitment to challenging the online casino industry status quo with its continuously evolving innovative services and offerings makes it a company with a bright future. NetEnt is a vocal proponent of responsible gambling and privacy, with an emphasis on payment processes and data collection practices in the industry.
Known as the facial recognition company, Cognitec has introduced this technology into many casinos. It allows employees to monitor the casino floor for banned gamblers and those who have registered for a voluntary exclusion program. Facial recognition also alerts staff to the arrival of high rollers who can then have the red carpet rolled out for them. Cognitec technology also enables users to recognize individuals’ behavior patterns, such as remaining on the casino floor for excessive periods or lingering in a certain area without playing.
International Game Technology (IGT)
Based in London, England, IGT has a major office in Providence, Rhode Island, and Las Vegas, Nevada. IGT offers a diverse range of services, including lottery tickets and casino gaming solutions.
