Awesome graphics is one of the key elements for an online casino game to be successful. Other than that, it has to be generous with high RTP and sophisticated features, modern and fast and of course, eye-catching! As an innovative and fast-growing iGaming content provider, BGaming has gathered interesting trends in the graphics and design of online casino games.
More and more players prefer to play on their mobile devices. Over 94% of BGaming's audience choose to play on mobile devices these days, according to a corporate report. For online casino game developers, this is a common trend that highly influences almost every step of the production process.
Art Director at BGaming Alexey Ulanov notes, "iGaming providers began to produce vertical online slots and games similar in logic to Match-3 games. Accordingly, the graphics adapt to these requirements. This is an important point because it is familiar and convenient for the player. As for the classic slots, we can see some simplification, providers have to reject small details that were important on desktops and slot machines, but are hardly distinguishable in mobile devices."
Mix of Styles
To coincide with the contemporary flat style of design, a bare minimum of elements and effects as well as the nonexistence of gradients or mixed colors is implemented. With primitive graphic art, the hyper casual design still lets the provider bring their own vision, thus making a game unique.
Thanks to the influence of crypto gaming, the share of games having these two styles is swiftly growing. Therefore, this impacts not only crypto games but all aspects of iGaming design.
Alexey Ulanov says, "Speaking about BGaming, now we're working on the hyper casual title called Space XY. It will be a good example of a crypto game. In general, we expect to see the development of both graphics-intensive games and games with flat, and hyper-casual design. There will be attempts to mix styles, and create versions of the same game in adjacent styles. That's an intriguing challenge and only the analysis will show us how it works."
Also, the casual design with its likeness to the cartoon style is still mainly the favorite amongst leading iGaming providers.
Ulanov says, "This approach gives artists the opportunity to bring different ideas and game themes to life. Dig Dig Digger, the latest release by BGaming, is a shining example of a casual-style slot."
VR/AR in iGaming - Games of the Future?
Online casino game providers can continue to pursue the niche of AR and VR games. 3D visualization of poker, slots and other casino games is thought to bring out new experiences on entertainment to players.
Head of BizDev Department at BGaming Alexandr Shavel said, "This is a very promising area for iGaming in general and BGaming in particular. This can become a new breath for online games. We're currently working on VR games but do this in our own way, it will be something completely different. We would like to give players another way to play their favorite games and have fun. To make it possible, we need to have more convenient devices but, for sure, this issue will be solved soon."
New Vision of Classics
In demand for all times, traditional fruit slots are considered a huge part of all online casino games. Apparently it seems that it is almost impossible to offer something new to this type of game, but providers are looking for new innovations.
For instance, BGaming was the first studio in the world to offer a concept of a chameleon-style slot. The studio organized a few packs of graphics for a single game and the outcome, Fruit Million, which was released in December 2020, celebrates every holiday along with the world.
Game Producer at BGaming Yulia Aliakseyeva said, "The game is going to change its look more than 5 times throughout the year, sharing the festive mood of Christmas, St, Valentine's Day, Halloween, and other big days. BGaming's art team created different graphics for the slot to bring players festive mood. Thanks to this, the game always stays relevant."
