The Future of iGaming

Conversations at SiGMA Asia centered on the key trends shaping the iGaming business in 2024:

  1. Unseating Traditional Methods: E-wallets Take Over iGaming. E-wallets are no longer a novelty, but a dominant force shaping iGaming payments. Panelists discussed the significant impact e-wallets have had on the industry in recent years, showcasing their phenomenal growth trajectory. This trend underlines the importance of offering popular e-wallet options for a seamless user experience and staying competitive.
  2. Mobile Payments Surge in Popularity. The dominance of smartphones has fuelled the demand for convenient mobile payment solutions. As users prioritize on-the-go convenience, offering optimized mobile payment methods has become essential for capturing and retaining customers.
  3. Diversifying Payment Options is a Key to Success. The golden rule of ‘don’t put all your eggs in one basket’ holds true for iGaming payments. Relying solely on traditional methods like card payments or bank transfers leaves you vulnerable to potential disruptions and limits your reach. This is where a diverse portfolio of alternative payment methods proves invaluable. By offering regional favorites like UPI in India, MomoPay in Vietnam, TrueMoney or PromptPay in Thailand, you cater to local preferences and increase your potential customer base.
