The main reasons for the advances it new blockchains such as Ethereum and EOS enabling greater possibilities for new types of decentralized apps and platforms. In the online casino and gambling games sector this is going to have a transformative effect as the additional security, transparency and greater chances to win along with better player rewards they are going to be the future of the industry.
One of the things that have been holding back the AR/VR gaming industry is that not many people can purchase the equipment required for this type of experience.

It will provide a more immersive experience and help to further grow the industry to new heights.
5G Internet Transformation
There was a lot of media coverage of 5G technology during 2019 mainly due to the restrictions placed on the market leader Huawei by Donald Trump. This is still a hot debate though but expects to see the mass expansion of 5G technology during 2020 anyway. It is truly a game-changer as it enables almost all possibilities to take place which will mean that game developers can take things to the next level.
5G technology will enable the gaming industry to reach the next level due to its enabling cloud gaming. Games on the go are the fastest growing sector and 5G will have a major impact. Just like streaming change the music industry, cloud gaming will do the same for the games industry. Expect to see lots of on-demand titles and platforms to enable this type of gaming next year.
Each year records are broken in the gaming industry and 2020 is set to be yet another blockbuster year. New technologies such as blockchain and 5G are helping developers to create next-generation platforms that will take the sector to new heights. With automation filling the role of human operators it may mean that a large percentage of the population turns to make money from playing and developing games so it could play a pivotal role in society going forward. Also once the experience of AR and VR technology surpasses that of the real world we may even start living in the digital world more than the real world.
