Gambling industry monitoring service

The online gambling industry (which includes casino games, poker, and sports betting) is growing pretty fast, with no signs of it slowing down. More and more people have access to the Internet via mobile phones or PCs, and people like to gamble. Around 51% of the world’s population are involved in some gambling form.

Gambling/betting industry overview

According to a report published by Grand View Research, the global online gambling market size was valued at USD 53.7 billion in 2019. Its expected annual growth rate is about 11.5% from 2020 to 2027. The COVID-19 pandemic also played a major role as betting moved more and more from real-world casinos to gambler's homes.

As you might expect, the profits are huge, so an online gambling website must have nearly 100% uptime. Just imagine the losses that a 1-hour or even a 10-minute website or web application downtime would inflict. A remote web monitoring service is required to detect every single issue that occurs.

Gambling websites monitoring options

WebSitePulse.com offers several monitoring solutions that will be helpful in a scenario like this one. The monitoring levels that we would recommend are as follows:

Webpage Full-Page Monitoring

The Full-Page monitoring level simulates a first-time user experience. Our monitoring agent sends a server-specific request and downloads the HTML content of the page that is being checked and all images and other embedded objects available on the page. Content verification can be performed via a keyword, content size, or an MD5 hash check. Transaction monitoring is also available for this level.

Multi-media and multi-level location alerts can be sent via SMS, e-mail, iOS, and Android PUSH notifications whenever a problem is detected.

Webpage In-Browser Monitoring

This is our most-sophisticated level of monitoring. It provides a real browser experience (Google Chrome) from an end-user perspective. It monitors the availability and performance of web applications, and it supports JavaScript and CSS. Also, this type of monitoring is available in a transaction version as well. This means that we can follow a series of steps that a normal user would go through. This ensures that your web gambling application works properly from beginning to end. Detailed reports and graphs are also available for issue troubleshooting.

You can choose from more than 40 locations worldwide to monitor your application from, which makes testing the availability from specific geographical regions really easy.

WebSitePulse provides a 30-day free trial period, which is absolutely free of charge and without any limitations. Creating an account and setting up a target for monitoring can be done in several minutes. Keep in mind that WebSitePulse's support works 24/7, so if any questions arise, you can always contact us and get help.
