Lucky Nugget Casino Announces Top 3 Innovations that Changed the Face of Casino Gaming
June 29, 2012
The casino industry has changed beyond all recognition in recent years, thanks to a range of technological developments and progressive innovations. As one of the first online casino sites, established in 1998, Lucky Nugget Casino has witnessed this transformation first hand, and takes a look at the key innovations that have helped to shape the casino industry as it stands today.
The Rise of the Internet
Without a doubt, the biggest transformation to hit the industry is the move from land-based casinos, to online. Offering gaming fans all of the excitement of land-based casinos from the comfort of their own homes, competition to create the most realistic casino experience online still drives the industry.
From 2D games, casino classics like roulette, blackjack and baccarat have progressed into live streaming favourites, with players now able to play real games, in real time, often from the floor of real casinos, via live video link - all from their own homes. The leap online has been a hugely successful one for the industry, with the global value of the online gambling market valued at almost $30 billion in 2011, forecast to rise to $46.1 billion by 2015. The internet will continue to transform the sector, with 3D gaming just around the corner.
The internet has changed the way we play in so many ways, from 24 hour access, to a greater selection of games than ever before. Online access means that casinos now compete for customers on a global scale. While this means competition is tough, one advantage is that the customer base is vast, and this in turn led to progressive jackpots.
One casino favourite has been given a complete image overhaul in recent years - poker. Previously seen as a game played by men in back rooms and basements, tournament poker changed the perception of the game completely. Television exposure through the World Series of Poker on ESPN and the Moneymaker series, helped open the game up to a new audience, creating new poker stars, and glamorising this classic table game.
