What a year it has been!

2020 has been a totally insane year where practically everything got turned on its head. We don’t know about you, but we sure have gotten very well acquainted with the inside of our homes this year.

The pandemic is not over, but we are hopeful that 2021 will be a year of luck, exciting gambling, and some properly big real money wins!

Looking back at the year 2020

Before we dive into what 2021 has in store for us, let’s take a look at some of the highlights from 2020:

The year began with NetEnt announcing their acquisition of Red Tiger Gaming. A few months later, in June, Evolution made the bold move to acquire NetEnt, which resulted in the closure of NetEnt Live.

In February and March, the first wave of COVID-19 started to make itself known, forcing land-based casinos worldwide to close their doors. So even in India, where casinos in Gangtok and Sikkim entered temporary closure.

As us gamblers now solely had to rely on online casinos for entertainment, SevenJackpots made sure to keep you one step ahead of the game with our extensive guide on how to spot hot and cold jackpots.

And speaking of jackpots, in 2020, we also saw a whole new type of jackpot, two of them, actually! First up; the slot game My Lucky Number from Hacksaw Gaming. A unique slot with a gigantic ₹205 crore progressive jackpot!

Following the unique and exclusive concept of jackpots, King of Casino LeoVegas, announced their own LeoJackpot. Beginning at ₹44 crores, it will grow as LeoVegas players play any of the many games that have been boosted with the huge prize pool.

Finally, online gamblers in Andhra Pradesh got some bad news as The Council of Ministers in the state decided to ban online gambling. The ban focuses mainly on online Poker and Rummy. Shortly after that, the Chief Minister also submitted a proposal for The Centre to block over a hundred websites in the state.

Looking forward, what can we expect from 2021?

In 2021, we hope that the discussions about the potential benefits of a regulated gambling market in India continues.

We believe that a regulated market is more beneficial than an illegal one, both for players and the state. It will allow serious actors on the market to provide gambling in a safe, controlled, and responsible environment.

Exciting game releases

We have gotten a taste for localized live games like Andar Bahar and Teen Patti in Hindi with the Bollywood live tables from Evolution during 2020, but we want more!

With Evolution’s acquisition of NetEnt, we can expect some innovation within the slot category in 2021.

Game providers are opening their eyes to India, and we expect to see additional native tables and games from successful providers like Evolution and Ezugi.

More super-smooth payment methods

Whatsapp Pay and Facebook Pay are new kids on the block for online payments making it easier for Indians to shop online.

Will we see these or other innovative payment solutions enter the online casino market in 2021? We hope so!

Massive casino wins

Above all else, we look forward to seeing new crorepatis in 2021. Plenty of the casinos here at SevenJackpots have the potential to deliver wins that can make you wealthy in an instant. All it takes is a lucky spin, hand, or bet to make it happen.

In the end, we’re excited for the coming year, and we will work as hard as ever to make sure that you will feel just as excited as us!

Thank you for being awesome and hanging out with us here at SevenJackpots during 2020. If there’s anything you’d like to see us dive into further in 2021, send us a message!

With that, we’d like to wish you a Happy New Year, and may Lakshmi grace you with her presence at the tables!
