The online casino phenomenon
It used to be that if you were a gambler, you had to go to a seedy out of the way gambling area. At the time, gambling was only betting on sports or playing poker in the back room. Then suddenly casinos were created. Casinos were invented to be houses where you could make a fast buck and enjoy a drink in the process. These casinos also gave you a variety of ways to make money and inevitably lose it. The casinos were made prettier and prettier until they were lavish places with slot machines, table games, and the tried and true sports games. However, these lavish buildings were placed only in specific cities and regions that allowed gambling in that area.
More and more of these gambling and casino areas began to spring up, and as gambling and casinos grew in popularity, so did the way these casinos looked. From the lavish posh Mediterranean games houses to Bugsy Segal’s Las Vegas, casinos grew from small buildings to beautiful cities. Now, the areas of the world that have casinos look like an adult theme park with neon lights, roller coasters, drinks, shows, and every form of entertainment that one can think of. Many thought this was the end of the road for casino creation. Then entered the internet and the world of online gaming.
Online gaming has been around for a number of years now. Kids have fought each other in online war, raced each other in online speedways, and walked through online fantasy worlds. It was inevitable that the online world would eventually follow suite. The question was exactly how would this online casino look and act? Would it give players that same thrill they could get sitting at a table or pulling the lever on a slot machine?
Now, for the first time in history the entire Las Vegas or Atlantic city casino is available in the comfort of your own home. You no longer have to buy the plane ticket or fork out the money for a hotel room, not you can bet, double down, spin, and win all from your couch. Once you set up your account, the price to play and the amount you win is automatically adjusted in your bank account. The states aren’t the only casinos getting in on this, there are casinos from Japan to Morocco that have set up a full online casino.
Not only that, there are independent companies that are setting up their own casinos that rival that of the bigger names with odds that will match or even beat the well known brands. The average computer programmer with a little bit of money can now create their own casino, and if they put enough effort into it, they have the ability to rival the more known and established casinos. This is the online casino phenomenon that is taking over the world.
