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.

The Gaming Machines Review published by the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport welcomed the progress made by casino operators in promoting responsible gambling – yet rejected every one of the sector’s proposals for modest, sensible reform of the industry.

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.

What Do Lucian Freud, Dostoyevsky and Mark Twain Have in Common? Their Attraction to the Game

Many of the most successful artists and creators of other original content have been fans of the casino and it has been suggested on many occasions that there is a link between the creative arts and risk-taking. Whilst the reason for this supposed link has yet to be fully explained, it's possible to speculate as to why this is the case when looking at the various examples, both past and present, of figures who have indulged in a spot of casino gaming.
