With the birth of online casinos, gamblers were given more option; and it made casino games more accessible that’s why some people started switching to playing online. The competition between land-based casinos and online casinos became fiercer – with companies thinking of new ways to lure in more players. Gaming Realms Limited developed one of the first live table games through Castle Jackpot where you can interact with real dealers via webcam; while New Orleans decided to provide a new gambling experience by establishing riverboat casinos such as Boomtown Casino and Treasure Chest Casino.
In Asia, the gambling scene is also booming with Macau, Singapore, and Hong Kong leading the list of places to visit because of their list of casinos. India, on the other hand, still lacks gambling facilities that’s why some of the locals travel to the aforementioned destinations to get the best gambling experience. With the launch of the country’s first onshore casino in 2011 followed by 12 more casinos in Goa, India showed potential of being included in the top list of gambling destinations in Asia.
Heralded as a holy place, some people never expected India to follow the casino trend, but the demand has always been there. Thankfully, Delta Corporation will open the first world-class casino resort in India next year. The company is famous for their offshore floating casinos, and now Delta will add a 60,000 square-foot casino to its empire – that’s something worth looking forward to.
Having that in mind and the possibility of more casinos being established in India in the future, I guess the perfect song for those who are planning to travel to India for a spiritual quest is “Losing My Religion” by REM. It’s ironic how a holy place is slowly transforming into a gambling mecca. Do you agree about having more casinos built in India?
