Back to the Future: How the Past is Becoming the Present for Casinos


When it comes to revolutions in the world of gaming, the name Space Invaders plays a pretty significant role. Indeed, the game itself not only heralded the start of the world of computer gaming truly coming to the masses and becoming a huge part of the 1980s culture of arcade gaming and the arcade halls that sprung up, but hasalso  had a lasting impact on gaming culture as a whole. The original games which, in the 1970s, caused the Bank of Japan to triple its production of 100-yen pieces in order to keep up with demand for fueling the machines, are, in fact, still heralded as some of the best and most enduring examples of ‘fun’ gaming.

Generational Segments are Not Just about Employees but Also Customers. A Slice and Dice of the Marketing Pie…

I have had a unique casino/executive and academic/instructor view; engaging the next generation in both their role as students, employees and customers of gaming and hospitality. 

My time working directly with employees in the casino/hospitality environment has provided me with a bench mark for the “real-world” result of academia’s experiential learning model vs. their ideological applications.

How casino review sites can help you make an informed decision


The rise of the online casino is apparent. With the United States pushing to legalize online gambling nationwide and the United Kingdom's Gambling Commission reporting that online gaming is now the industry’s leading sector, it’s hardly surprising that thousands of websites want to be the players’ favorite.

But before you delve into the land of Internet-based gaming, it’s critical that you weigh up each website’s pros and cons, promises and pitfalls, and hidden dangers. Don’t be lured by their shady sign-up offers. Do your research first.

The Rise of Atlantic City's Casino Revenue Thanks to Online Gambling


The status of gambling in Atlantic City was not looking good in the previous years. However, this has changed thanks to the growth of online gambling. Reports have it that casinos in Atlantic City experienced a 1.7% increase in revenue for the month of October.

Though this might not sound much, it’s still a considerable growth as the city hasn’t experienced this in the years prior. If it was not for the $20.4 million revenue from online gambling, all the seven casinos in the city would have experienced a 0.3 % decline in revenue for October. The casinos in the city earned $203 million in October of 2016.
