Casinos, that is, gambling establishments, have existed almost always. At least we know for sure that they were in Greece, Rome and China before our era.
At the same time, the format of the establishment did not change much until the 20th century:
- Tables for playing with cards, roulette or dice.
- The dealer is the host of the games.
For centuries, the casino has been a place where you can not just play, but also communicate. And despite the scientific and technological progress, for a long time everything remained the same, and the operation’s principles did not change at all. Even if at some point the candles around the tables were changed to light bulbs.
The century of global changes in the gambling industry was precisely the 20th, when slot machines appeared, said Darren Keane from Shangri La. Soulless “one-armed bandits” competed seriously with traditional casino formats, and some similar establishments added a slot machine hall to their “repertoire”, while others completely turned into such halls.
With the advent of the Internet, everything has become even easier: you can play slots without leaving home, online:
- Go to the website.
- Make a bet.
- Start the game.
- If the bet has won, withdraw the winnings.
Everything is extremely simple, you don’t need to know a lot – except perhaps how to choose an honest online casino. It’s just that many players have started to feel nostalgic for the good old days when the casino was traditional.
Why live casinos are gaining popularity
What does not suit fans of excitement in modern slots? Lack of live communication. The player is not only physically at home but also sees nothing on the site except the slot machine, noted Darren Keane from Shangri La.
Lack of individual approach. The player often wants to feel that the game is going with him – and the machine “serves” everyone according to the same algorithm. The random number generator does not allow you to show your talents for games, because it does not involve the use of any skills. And finally, many fans of excitement justifiably do not trust those generators, because they want to get results that depend only on luck.
All this causes a longing for the good old casinos. However, such establishments are not always located nearby. Some countries allow casinos only in special zones on the outskirts of the country, so there are simply no casinos in the player’s hometown.
In such a situation, the way out is a live casino, which allows you to make a full-fledged virtual visit to a gambling establishment without leaving home.
