Lockdown Means More Online Games
Because of the COVID lockdown, many people of all ages began to turn to the internet, primarily online gaming, for entertainment. Since they are not allowed to go outside for some time and are spending more time at home, people started to find ways to entertain themselves and fight boredom. With that, other tech companies also started to join the trend and partnered with online casinos and take the opportunity to expand their market.
Google Goes Gaming
Google is now opening its doors to the new gaming service, Stadia Pro. The giant internet operator allowed public access to Stadia Pro for two months. This strategy will enable the users to get to know the game, and once they like it, they will then subscribe after the two-month trial period.
The free-trial period of Google also became windows to those who want to try other forms of entertainment during the lockdown.
Apart from the free-trial access with Stadia Pro, Google announced that it would allow advertisements from four US States, namely, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Nevada, and Delaware. The company shared its thoughts that they support responsible gambling and also take the gambling laws seriously.
The four states currently allow online casinos on their premises, but all have specific gambling laws supporting the gambling industry.
Facebook Launches Tournament Gaming
Facebook is also famous for its gaming feature, which allows Facebook friends to compete or share a game using the application. Presently, the social networking site launched its Tournament feature in the Gaming section, and it will allow the users to create tournaments with their Facebook friends and even non-Facebook friends.
The Tournament feature also has the games Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite. Using the function, the tournament creator can design and configure the game. S/he can even invite Facebook users that are not on the friends' list to be on the game. All the proceeds from the feature will all go to charities.
Facebook is known to feature many online casino games in its Gaming section. It also allows gambling ads on the site.
