iGaming and Payments: Development, Benefits, Predictions

Online payments are booming: the total value of online transactions is to surpass $7 trillion by 2023, alternative payment methods are taking the industry by storm, dethroning debit and credit cards that have been in the lead for two last decades, the biggest adjacent industries are glad to utilize the opportunities of online payments and at the same time put forward the demand for instant, feeless, and secure money transfers to any point on the world map. But what often remains behind the scenes is that iGaming is one of the most crucial factors determining the development of online payment methods.

This catches many by surprise, but not gaming and payment businesses, which are not only well aware of each other but perfectly know that standalone success is just not possible. The good news is that the main connection points between iGaming and e-payments are easy to identify, as well as it is possible to foretell the future that awaits these two giant industries.

iGaming and Payment Providers: a Win-Win Partnership to Expand Globally

Gaming is at the core of the entertainment business. It has long left underground and evolved into a 2.5-billion-gamer global industry generating hilarious numbers for both gaming developers and online payment companies. Whether the profits come from mobile, tablets, or PC, all gaming companies face one and the same problem that cannot be solved without a worthwhile payment partner - global reach & KYC/AML compliance.

Since there are hundreds of countries worth expanding to, it would have taken years even for the renowned iGaming businesses, let alone their smaller peers, to overcome the local barriers if it hadn't been for the payment providers that had already employed dozens of streamlined payment channels. For an iGaming business, it's all about partnering with a well-known payment provider that would cover the relevant countries & territories and allow to send money fast, securely, and with the lowest fees; for a payment provider, it's all about reaching a new audience, the bigger the better (and preferably with the highest financial capacity).

The Future of iGaming and Online Payments

Any relevant experience of gaming finds an immediate response in online payments and vice versa. And even though this strong connection is likely to remain for years, it's quite hard to accurately predict the upcoming transformations. Still, we can try to give an outlook based on the rising trends in these markets.
