Wishful Thinking Or Not: Will There Ever Be an Xbox Casino?

-

As the pandemic precipitated a gaming boom, providers have been exploring new horizons for their games, investing time, energy and money into creating stronger immersive gaming experiences for their users. The current talk of the town is the possibility of having access to an Xbox casino. 

As a gamer, you might have found refuge in your gaming routine during the pandemic, navigating the uncertainty of the times through your gaming controller. But now the future seems to hold a further exciting prospect: playing your favorite casino game on your beloved console and potentially getting your hands on some extra cash…no doubt a fantastic combination if there ever was one! More likely is the chance to win real money no deposit. Definitely, not worth missing!

Since mobile gaming became legal, the demand for slot games has soared and Xbox has been analysing data and trends to map out what the future might hold. Although it might seem like a longshot for Xbox to venture into the online casino games realm, with enough demand and adequate investment, the future of online casino games can actually be reshaped in unprecedented ways. Let us explore what Xbox can bring to the market, its strongpoints and the potential setbacks.

What assets does Xbox envisage to bring to the market?

The Head of Development for Xbox, Phil Spencer, has envisaged the assets that Xbox can harness, to bring the best casino gaming experience to its users:

  1. The hardware to be used would be four times more powerful than the current Xbox One X Consoles.
  2. The advanced technology to be invested in would generate greater detail, allowing for a more immersive casino experience that would mimic the same experience of a physical casino.
  3. The aim is to reduce loading times within the games to almost nil.

The probability of launching Xbox online casinos: the strongpoints of Xbox

  1. Cross-platform functionality 

Online casino players currently enjoy the adaptability of the desktop interface to different platforms, accessing their favourite games through their smart phone and any other device. Although console gaming studios are still coming around to this concept, Xbox is already equipped to support different interfaces. Xbox’ cross-platform adaptability augurs well for its ambition to becoming the ‘Netflix of games’

  1. The skillset of its developers

Having refined its graphics, gameplay and sound to keep up with PlayStation, Xbox developers have already shown great potential in this regard. With enough demand from users, they certainly have what it takes to revolutionise the world of online gambling and reinvent the casino experience as we know it.

  1. The US is the perfect spot 

With Microsoft and Xbox located in the state of Washington and mobile gaming being legal and regularised in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, the US would be Xbox’ perfect point of entry into the online gaming market.

  1. Microsoft: an ambitious visionary and a great investor

The track record of Microsoft is a clear indication of its keen penchant for gaming. Its vision of becoming the Netflix of gaming and its unrelenting commitment towards that ambition, renders it a promising leader in the gaming domain. From Xbox to Game Pass to XCloud, the growth of the Windows developer is unstoppable and the sky is the limit to their future prospects.

What are potential setbacks for Xbox?

  1. Legal issues 

Since Xbox is a global company, there might be some legal issues that the company might need to contend with. Before releasing any game, developers would need to make sure that they abide by the laws of different countries, which may vary quite significantly from one country to another.

  1. Competition

With more than 20 years’ experience of game creation under its belt, Microsoft already has a leg up in gaming. Still, providers such as PlayStation and Netflix are fierce competitors, posing a significant threat.

Despite the threats and potential setbacks, there is enough evidence to suggest that Phil Spencer’s vision and Xbox’ strongpoints are bold enough to be able to take online casino gaming to the next level. We believe that with enough demand and the right moves, an Xbox casino might just be a hop, skip and a jump away!
