The iGaming Edge: How Ultra-Low Latency Video Streaming Fuels Revenue Growth

The iGaming industry is booming, driven by a growing demand for authentic live gaming experiences. But in this competitive landscape, providing high quality, fast-paced casino games online and on mobile requires more than just luck. One crucial factor often overlooked is the role of fast, reliable video streaming.

The Latency Labyrinth: Why Speed Matters

Latency and drift – the bane of any streaming experience – are particularly detrimental in iGaming. Even a slight delay between games can have a significant impact on the total number of bets placed while players and bettors who are playing at different times (ie: out of sync) may have an unfair advantage or disadvantage. This erodes trust, and ultimately leads to lost revenue.

Ultra-low latency video streaming cuts through these inefficiencies. Minimizing latency maximizes revenue by ensuring a seamless real-time experience and protects operators against courtsiding. This increases the number of games players can participate in, the number of bets that can be placed, and ultimately the handle and revenue that operators can generate. In addition to ultra-low latency, synchronized streaming unifies the playing experience, engenders trust with bettors, and enables all players to bet on an even playing field. 

Think of it this way: there are 86,400 seconds in a day. If a typical round of roulette takes 90 seconds on average, and each spin is delayed by 10 seconds, that’s 10% fewer spins each day. This has a significant effect on overall betting handle.
