BGaming announced that it had been shortlisted at the SBC Awards 2022 under the category Industry Innovation of the Year for its software, namely Algorithm of Image Compression.
Features that worked in its favor were HD Graphics, enhanced user interface, and sound design customized for a better experience to satisfy the players with their thirst for the best gaming experience.
iGaming content is in demand, with various developers working around the clock on different themes. It takes guts and creativity to break the norm and develop something that speaks a different language.
Resources are utilized higher when the iGaming content is upgraded; however, it only increases the weight required to run the application. Such a process requires the software development team to work and deploy a service that can manage the upgrade without putting too much pressure on the final output, thereby not affecting the overall gaming quality.
Therefore, the software development team of BGaming created an algorithm to compress the image quality so that the final weight of the iGaming content is lowered without impacting the quality of the product.
The Algorithm of Image Compression automatically determines the level to which the loss of quality can be tolerated depending on the original size and type. Images are then compressed accordingly.
There is no manual adjustment required to be performed by a human as the script developed takes care of the process by itself.
The result of the deployment of the Algorithm of Image Compression is that 70% of the total iGaming portfolio of BGaming now weighs less than 10Mb. How much the iGaming content weights directly affects how fast the content loads.
It then leads to a smoother experience for the user, especially those who live in regions with limited or unstable internet connections. Loading time is an essential KPI in the iGaming industry. Focusing on that single factor can boost a developer’s number of new players, uninterrupted gaming experience, engagement of players with the content, and reduced number of games left incomplete.
BGaming’s motto is to convert gambling into gaming. With how it is progressing in the industry and the types of tools it is introducing in the market, it would be right to say that BGaming is succeeding in its endeavors.
Add-ons make a game heavier, but with the Algorithm of Image Compression in place, there is nothing to worry about those add-ons.
BGaming appreciated its software development team in the blog post for assisting the developer in becoming the global leader in the iGaming industry with innovative ideas and technologies. The final winners will be announced in September 2022 at SBC Summit Barcelona.
The developer has also credited getting shortlisted because the entire team is passionate, focused, and in love with their jobs. Solution by BGaming is relevant for all devices irrespective of their sizes and platforms.
