Our client made a decision to enter the online market. At the beginning of our cooperation, we outlined two main business goals:
- To digitalize client’s existing gambling. The current epidemic situation has proved that online presence is a must-have for businesses to grow and stay in demand.
- To create an easy-managing solution for offline casinos to expand online. Recently, Germany has legalized online gambling, so the market is in need of a solution for a quick transformation.
Considering aforesaid, we created a SaaS web platform where gambling businesses can easily create and manage their online casinos.
Process and challenges
The platform is designed for three types of users with different access levels and capacities: players, casino employees, and super admins. Our goal was to make the online back-office functional but intuitively easy to work with. The overall casino experience must be able to keep users engaged and meet their expectations. This kind of service can’t have delays in response, so a fast operation proceeding is required.
- Serverless architecture and two-way synchronization of microservices
- Fast and huge logging of play events
- Integrations with IGaming and cashier third-party services
- Multilingual interface with the capacity to upload dictionaries
- Elasticsearch Warm usage to store a large amount of information
Casino creation and management
The casino owner has access to the back-office where they can configure various settings such as currencies and languages, as well as set up integrations with both online and offline casinos, and cashier services.
Employee management system
The whole casino staff can be added to the platform and granted corresponding user permissions, depending on their actual roles. Employees receive access to different aspects and activities of the back office and carry on with their normal activities.
Payment gateway configuration
Financial transactions are one of the most important parts of any casino. These need to be closely monitored and accurately managed. In the back office, all transaction details can be monitored – withdrawals, deposits, bonus amounts, withdrawal requests, and so much more.
To keep track of the activity, the casino owner and employees have access to structured reports of deposits and withdrawals. Through the dashboard, there is a breakdown of profits and losses, gaming results, and the gaming archive.
Every player gets a personal, seamless, wallet they can manage on the platform. A player can make deposits and withdrawals using credit cards, e-wallets, or cryptocurrencies. Players can keep track of their transactions, gaming history.
The casino offers various types of games to play, among them: roulette, table games, and video slots. Through the website, players may filter games to find the one that matches their taste. Also, you can choose whether you want to play just for fun or for real money. If you like a game, you can mark it as your favourite and later access it through a personal account.
Deposit limits and blackouts
There are two features available for players to manage their interactions with the casino. The first one sets deposit limits on daily, weekly, or monthly terms. Players can control their finances and not exceed the sum they want to spend. The other main feature is a “blackout”, which is a period of time when users want to freeze their account and take an extended break from playing. When the blackout runs out, the account is reopened, and the player can play again.
UI/UX design plays a significant role in the success of the online casino. Our goal was to focus the player’s attention on the game selection process, therefore, we chose the restrained color palette not to distract them from the main event. As the platform provides a wide choice of games, we created categorization and placed the games accordingly to simplify navigation. Dark colors allowed us to contrast the games, making them more colorful.
Yellow and green were chosen as accent colors to use on crucial elements. Their combination is highly compatible with the chosen pallet, as both of these colors make the interface feel brighter, but don’t oversaturate it. They are also visible on a dark background and comfortable to look at.
Another decision was to forgo flat design. We created old-school skeuomorphic buttons for a more realistic effect. Illustrations were also embedded into the interface to add some friendly vibes.
