‘How does one set up a successful online gambling business like Slotozilla?’ you are wondering.

The online casino and bookmaker industry has in the past few years growing at a very fast rate. This is evident by a large number of operators making their presence felt in the industry.  The result is that there has been a stiff competition among different parties and individual parties trying to set up online gambling business.

If you are interested in making a lasting impression and possibly reap large from this ever expanding business, it’s important that you take some of the following factors into consideration.

1.      Ensure that you’ve chosen a dependable iGaming software provider

We shall not be ashamed to say that this is the most important factor to consider when setting up an online gambling business. Why? Because how smooth and effective you offer your clients services greatly depends on the company that you choose to work with. Furthermore, since you are entering into a long term business, you wouldn’t want to find yourself switching between companies frequently as it will not only prove to your clients that you aren’t determined, but it will also cost you money.

So what factors should you consider when choosing a software company? You should ensure that the company has a deep understanding on the online casino industry as well as a history or proven track record of powering different online casinos.

Also, you should look for one that offers a flexible, fully customizable software solutions which will enable you to control the entire process of launching the company. This includes designing the website to post launch.

You can also choose software that easily incorporates an easy to manage back end, one that has plenty of betting markets, one that supports multiple payment options and most importantly one that features an advanced gaming management system.

2.      What are you planning to offer your customers once the website has been launched?

Once you’ve chosen and settled on the software that should run your online gambling platform, the next step is determining what services you should offer your customers. The following questions should guide you in this section.

·         Which software platform will you use to run your casino?

·         Which games should you include in the portfolio? Slots? Poker? Roulette? Blackjack?

·         What about the live casino games? Is your target market ready to explore this section?

3.      Seek the services of a reputable online casino license provider

One of the things that has proven to be very difficult for most people seeking to start an online gambling platform are the different laws involved in different countries. To ensure that their players are well protected and access safe betting services, different jurisdictions have different laws.

To ensure that you easily beat these laws, look for an online gambling license provided by a top licensing company such as UK Gambling Commission or the Malta Gaming Authority. This way, even you players can easily play and enjoy games feeling secure. We’ve recommended the following companies based on the following criteria.

·         They have friendly taxes and the initial cost of a license if pocket friendly

·         They are widely accepted across different countries in Europe

4.      Choose a payment system provider

How will you reap from offering gambling services if you don’t choose a reputable payment system provider? How will players trust your website if you can’t assure them of safety for all their financial and bank information? Okay, there are players who can stomach these factors, but are you sure they are going to stand the fact that they have to wait for longer periods before they can withdraw their cash? I doubt that!

To avoid finding yourself in a stick situation, why don’t you take time, carry out a detailed research on a payment system provider with a good track record and contact them for further assistance. In fact, to ensure that your players conveniently choose a method that best suits them, why not offer them multiple payments methods?

From experience, a good payment platform should have the following features:

·         Fraud detection

·         Support multiple currencies

·         Be able to integrate with most of the e-merchants

5.      Website design and plenty of promotions

Lastly, I can’t emphasize enough on how important it is to have a website that appeals to your target audience. It’s important to choose banners that will draw players to the site at first glance. Furthermore, to ensure that they go to the extent of signing up, use marketing strategies such as the use of bonuses, loyalty programs and promotions to sign them up.

When designing your website, here are some few tips to consider:

·         Avoid overloading your website with unnecessary elements or graphics which might otherwise slow down your website and consequently affecting the overall gaming experience.

·         Develop a website that is mobile friendly. If possible, come up with a mobile application to enable players enjoy games on the move

·         Lastly, ensure that your website’s front end guarantees a seamless integration with your database
