What do they say?
Speaking about her role in the industry, Logue said, “The gambling industry was worth $451 billion in 2019. Along with everything that has happened over the past few years, including COVID-19, a lot has changed for us. They expect everything in the gambling industry to come back, thrive and become more profitable in the next couple of years, but one thing that has changed a lot like everyone else is the insane growth of online gambling. It has risen significantly by about 11%.
“There are over 400 different jurisdictions and regulators in the gambling industry, so each jurisdiction has its own rules that need to be tested in addition to functional, regression, integration and performance testing.”
Explaining the gambling ecosystem, Logue added: “Game developers want to create games that are interesting for players to make money in the casino. Happy casinos buy more games, so the more players play, the more money they make and the more the casinos are going to give back to the producers.
“There are several different types of developers. There is an independent developer who will develop their own game and then they will try to find a manufacturer or a casino to distribute that game, but there are also manufacturers who develop their own games for the different types of machines that they have.”
