Online Casinos of the Future

Published October 1, 2004 by OCR Editor

It's interesting to think about where things will be say 40 or 50 years down the road. Not even 20 years ago no one would have ever dreamed about a virtual casino. Casinos were physical buildings you entered and played in with real dealers and real peop

It's amazing to think that 20 years later there is a full info structure supporting the online casino. Not only have the advances in internet technologies and high speed connection improved the sites greatly but new services and industries have sprung up just to facilitate them.

For instance the online payment industry is almost exclusively dedicated to online gambling. Online shopping is not such a new phenomenon but you've always been able to use standard methods of electronic payment like major credit cards for that. Since some credit card companies and PayPal (one of the biggest online payment systems on the net) stopped support direct payments to casinos the industry has had to rethink a few things. At first it looked grim to the swarms of people that enjoy gambling but then within a few years a number of online payment companies emerged in order to fill the void. Now there are so many choices it's impossible not to find a payment method that works for you.

So imagine then what the gambling site of the future might look like. Perhaps there will be some kind of interface lie virtual reality goggles or something that will help enhance the realistic feeling. You'll be able to walk through a 3-D setting along side other players and dealers in a vibrant and realistic online casino. There is no telling what the future may hold for this industry. It's important to note that the developments in software and playability have improved great just in the past few years alone.

The industry is still in its infancy. Only about 10 years old it has only just begun to take form. Trying to imagine where it will be, or where the internet will be in 40 years form now is next to impossible. But the only thing we can be sure of is that it will be spectacular. For now, we can enjoy what we have and anticipate some exciting new changes in the next couple of years.
