The online gambling market continues to grow rapidly. According to Statista, its global turnover will amount to almost $59 billion by the end of 2020, which means an increase of 8% compared to the previous year.
What are the reasons for such success in the virtual gaming industry? The rapid development of online gambling can be explained by the following reasons:
• the technological breakthrough observed in recent years and even greater progress that can be expected in the future;
• acceptable operating costs for gamers, significantly lower than in offline gambling establishments;
• the target audience of online casinos has no administrative and state borders;
• the ability to attract gamers from around the world with an unlimited range of general and exclusive services.
This situation in the online gambling market has led to the the services of game software developers becoming more and more in demand every year. Creating a successful online casino game requires involving highly qualified developers.
Stages of Poker App Development
Concept
Start with brainstorming the concept. Visualize it on a piece of paper. Add keywords and comments to each branch of your plan. There are two options:
• come up with something extraordinary;
• adopt the experience of the most successful virtual poker sites.
It is quite risky to enter the market with a product that has no analogs. Sure, there is a chance for success, but it is impossible to predict how big the success will be. It’s easier and more reliable to carry out thorough market research first. The following tools will come in useful:
• Questback – a program designed to collect data from social networks, online panels, loyalty programs.
• Social Mention – a program for tracking reviews on any topic in all social networks. The information received will help you determine the popularity of the topic among the target audience.
• FreeLunch will help you collect publicly available statistics and financial information about competitors. This will help you determine the cost of the project, analyze the market, and identify your main competitors.
• SurveyMonkey – a service with ready-made templates for market research based on surveys. It will help you better understand consumer motivation.
After the brainstorming, when you have decided on the concept, it’s time for the practical implementation of your ideas.
Prototype
The prototype is a developer tool that will help find and fix errors that occurred during the brainstorming phase, and get a feel of the future website. Working with prototypes, developers use the following tools:
• Framer is a simple tool with which you can move images, embed shapes, texts, animations, etc. Coding knowledge is not required.
• Marvel is a universal program for creating mobile and web prototypes. It has a full range of functionality for downloading images of various formats, editing, optimization for various devices.
• InVision is a service that creates interactive mobile and web prototypes. It has the same professional functionality as Marvel, working with Photoshop and Sketch files.
• Proto.io is a professional tool for developers and designers.
• Unity is a full-fledged professional platform for developing gambling prototypes of all existing varieties.
Programming
At this stage, you create the basic structure, the primary version of the online game. When making this work, developers focus on the key components that make the software work. To do this, they use the following tools:
• HTML5;
• Angular;
• JS node;
• Vert.x;
• Vue JS;
• MongoDB.
Testing
This is the final stage for you to determine the readiness of the project to launch. Testing is not an easy process and can be performed using various techniques. Here are some of them:
• Combinatorial testing involves generating various test situations, covering the maximum number of possible combinations of all game parameters.
• Functional testing reveals inaccuracies in programming that affect the gaming experience. The installation and the correct operation of the game, payment gateways, etc. are checked.
• Compatibility testing is used for mobile applications. The ability to work on various devices, stability, readability, compliance with the size of the display are checked.
• Load testing is performed in real-time by many users at the same time. It checks the stability of the product and the maximum number of gamblers.
• Beta testing – the final evaluation of the game, receiving first feedback from users.
How long can the testing last? Get ready, because it may take several months to a couple of years.
Release
There is nothing left for you but to patiently observe how successful and popular your product is. If you didn’t make any serious mistakes before the release, you are likely going to succeed.
Keep in mind that observation is not all you should do at this stage: the advertising and marketing support, working with staff are also necessary.
