For many years, casinos have been viewed as the ultimate adult playground – and have been depicted this way in the Western world, for centuries now. However, the world has shifted over the last few years, especially due to changes that have come with the latest technological revolution.

How the game establishments were doing a few decades ago

The physical establishments always had a one-up on the digital gaming sites due to their ability to set the mood and create an experience that simply cannot be replicated on digital sites. Furthermore, some of the biggest gambling centres in the world, such as Las Vegas, have multiple locations at the same venue and use food/drink experiences as well as lighting as some of their marketing ploys.

And thus, a new industry was born which further festered on the bleeding physical establishments.

With access to a plethora of different machines and games, many people lost interest in the ‘real thing’.
