It was only a decade ago when most people, when they had the desire to gamble and play some casino games, needed to find a real life, brick-and-mortar casino. There were not many options available, and that meant possibly traveling for hours or even days just to get one of these establishments, if that was even feasible. Today, with the advancement of technology, smartphones, tablets, and mobile technology, live action casinos are changing the gaming industry, and continue to do so.
What Are Live Action Casinos?
While online casino gaming has grown in popularity, brick-and-mortar casino establishments, the ones most people are greatly familiar with, have had to adapt to this explosion of online gambling. In order to stay competitive, live action casinos have managed to bring the thrill of the live dealer into a player’s home.
The action is streamed live, which can provide the players the true sense of the thrill of playing poker, roulette, craps, or other casino games as though they were actually there in the casino itself, but without the need to leave home, travel hours or even days, all just to get to the casino itself.
For a while, it appeared as though apps that could be downloaded to smartphones and tablets were going to seriously hamper brick-and-mortar casinos and their ability to remain in business, but then live action casinos started to gain popularity. It is basically combining the best of both worlds: the thrill of in-person casino action, with a dealer sitting right in front of you, with the convenience and technology that mobile phones and tablets offer.
People can gamble on the go
Whereas in the past, when a person wanted to gamble, they may have needed to find new casino sites, get directions, drive or fly there, and spend a considerable amount of time and money just to get that thrill, today people have access to the same excitement, but from wherever they are.
In other words, if a person is commuting on the bus or train, taking a lunch break, or simply wants to relax at the end of a long day, and they have the desire to do some gambling as a way to get some excitement and thrill into their day, they don’t have to dedicate many hours to driving out to the casino, walking around the floor, playing, grabbing drinks and providing tips, and all of the other necessities of real-life gambling, but can simply download an app, open an app, or access a live casino from their smartphone or tablet.
They can play for just a few minutes at a time, a few hands, if that’s all they want to play. Then, they can get back to whatever it was they needed to do for the rest of the day.
Bitcoin is also boosting live action casinos
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that provides anonymity, security, and extreme convenience for not just players who may not live in the home country of the casino itself and may not otherwise be able to conduct these transactions using a debit or credit card, but it also provides these casinos with some security because those transactions are not reversible.
The combination of cryptocurrency, live action casinos, and technologically advanced smartphones and tablets, the gambling industry continues to grow and is expected to double within a few short years.
