Gaming and Casino Industry Solutions


ASSURING EXCELLENT GAMING QUALITYGlobal wager gaming industry, at the current size of $470 billion, is characterized by variable growth patterns caused by economic conditions, government regulations, changing customer behavior and the digital shift.

The Situation Today

The Casino and Gaming industry is undergoing a major shift because of multiple economic, geographic and technology factors. For instance, the casinos in Europe are reeling under high taxes and regulations, and in the US, the market is almost stagnant. However, the Asian market is showing visible signs of being the next growth region.

Similarly, gaming is witnessing reduced revenues from “Land-based” casinos and casino operators are exploring online gaming as a new source of revenue. With the growing influence of mobile and social in end-customer lifestyles, casino and gaming experiences are increasingly finding their way into these channels. The industry is also realizing the importance of knowing the customer, leveraging big data and analytics for creating personalized experiences driven by consumer insight and behavior. The Pit, as we know it, is expanding into the world of social, mobile, online and game consoles and delivering these experiences with the help of Cloud, big data and mobility for gaming companies.

With digital gaining prominence and becoming the potential driver in these changing times, HCL’s Casino and Gaming Practice is ready to drive this change with capabilities of casino application development and support.
