What the evolution of the modern casino means for today’s gambling fans
Today’s casinos have come a long way in a relatively short space of time.

Though organised gambling has always taken place in some fashion throughout every notable time period in our history, it wasn’t until the American’s began gathering together in saloons to shoot the proverbial, enjoy a drink and gamble with their buddies that the concept as we know it today began to really take shape.

From Nevada to the World

Though a national decree eventually made it illegal in the early days of the 1900s, it was only a few decades later, in 1931, that the US state of Nevada decriminalized gambling, paving the way for the first real prototype casino to begin taking shape.

Staying firmly at the helm, and earning itself a reputation as America’s gaming capital in the process, Nevada slowly but surely introduced the world to the sights, delights and sounds of casinos, starting with the mid Atlantic state of New Jersey.

Taking their inspiration from gaming hubs such as Nevada’s Las Vegas, where scores of tourists would -and still do- flock to try their luck at the Roulette wheel, it was back in the late 1970s that New Jersey officials legalized gambling in Atlantic City.

Today, the area treads closely behind Vegas as the USA’s biggest gambling resort, though it’s fair to say that others are hot on their heels.

No doubt seeing the soaring profits and economic upswing enjoyed in both Strictlycash Live Casino and across Nevada, more and more states went into the gambling trade, looking to get a piece of the action.

It wasn’t long before the rest of the world began to follow suit, with large-scale casino complexes cropping up as far away as Topslotsite.com , Japan and across Europe.

Nor does the continued growth of the casino industry show any signs of slowing down. If anything, it’s only getting bigger, meaning today’s gambling fans can enjoy their favourite games wherever they happen to be in the world.

Making the most of technology

Today’s’ casinos put the latest in modern technology to work in everything from delivering exciting gameplay to managing security, though in keeping with the way the rest of the world has evolved, it’s this same modern technology which now means gamers no longer even need leave their homes to experience the joys of the big name gambling houses.

Thanks to the explosion of the web, not to mention greater accessibility affordable, Internet-ready gadgets, real-world casinos and traditional bookmakers alike have seized upon the opportunity to bring popular games like Poker, Blackjack and even slot machines to a much wider audience.

The result? Always-online casino games available at the click of button right around the clock and, thanks to lower running costs than physical venues, bigger jackpot prizes.

And as game-makers continue to use new technologies to bring us an even wider selection of games and methods of playing, it’s fair to say that casinos have come a pretty long way in the past 90 years or so.
