How do casinos keep up with technology?
In order to keep up with advances in technology, as well as the massively competitive and diverse smartphone market, casino, poker and betting operators must similarly adapt, develop and diversify their technology. They have clearly realised this, as while they are yet to use their mobile technology to produce mobile apps for their poker and casino services, they have created a range of mobile betting apps across the different smartphone and tablet platforms.
For example, Betfair have created some standalone products to tailor their Android-supporting Smartphone App that differentiates it from the mobile Apps for other platforms. They provide as standard all the services you’d expect to be there, from the ability to place bets both before the action and during it, across a range of options – all betting, casino and poker operators including Betfair have realised that providing the in-play betting options is an absolutely essential way of keeping up with the developments in gambling technology.
However, with the Betfair mobile betting App for Android-supporting smartphones you can also update, manage and cancel all existing bets at will, and bookmark any markets where you feel potential betting opportunities will develop. What is striking about the Betfair Android App is that Betfair is clearly not prepared to simply match the efforts to keep up with technology made by other poker, casino and betting operators. They have also developed a supplementary App to support and augment the main App – Bet-Droid, available for free download (as is the main App).
With Bet-Droid, Betfair have shown how to stay ahead of the technological curve – not only does it allow you to calculate potential outcomes of a range of different bets, it also provides a sophisticated ‘what-if’ element to these calculations, meaning you can track the potential value of a range of permutations on a given event.
