More and more countries around the world are beginning to take measures to contain the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) over the past week. As a result, many businesses have been affected by self-isolation — especially countries throughout Asia. Our iGaming industry is not exempt from the current situation, and the past few weeks have left a huge question in every iGaming operator’s mind: Will my live casino, sportsbook, slots or any other online gaming products be affected?
The short answer is — some are affected, some are not. Some product providers were unlucky and operate out of countries that are heavily affected by COVID-19, and face strict isolation procedures — making operations practically impossible. At the same time, many other product providers have managed to find ways to adapt to the situation.
