Missions help to onboard users which only start their journey. They guide people who are new to your site, by typically easy tasks like “Make your 1st bet”, or “Make your first deposit”.
When users accomplish tasks or missions, they achieve different life goals. For example, taking challenges such as “Win 1000 times in 24 hours”, they move forward to their big life goal – Bankrupting your casino. Challenges are strong motivators which induce users to take the expected actions. They are the effective tools assisting to increase user engagement. Game elements such as a mission and challenge add interactivity to your site, and have proven to increase the time spent of your players on your site.
Use missions to reduce churn, by saying “Login every day for a month” or repetitive missions like “Make at least 1 bet per day for 7 days” with a sequel mission “Make at least 1 bets per day for 30 days” that will be unlocked once the previous one is completed. Missions and challenges make people return to your casino more often because some tasks require constant actions within your site.
