Remember the days of having to travel out of state to visit a casino? The adventure of a road trip or a get-away with the boys was just the thing to “cash in” on the slots or at the craps table. The thrill of hearing the coins kerplunk in the cash tray as the symbols line up on the slot machines is enough to send some seekers into overdrive.
However, the growth of the Internet has helped to turn gambling into a casual pass time. With high speed internet and links to an online casino, patrons simply need a few minutes, a smart phone, a tablet or a computer and they are “off to the races,” or to a slot machine at the casino.
Today’s savvy consumers don’t need an airline ticket, or a rental car. They simply need a few minutes and a link to have a gambling experience, because today’s technology brings the experience to their fingertips.
