It is pretty scary to think about the extent of the gambling industry’s dominance these days, mainly because of the sheer amount of revenue that it brings in each and every year. It seems as though quite literally everyone loves to gamble in one way or another, with casino gambling being by far the biggest gambling sector, something that is all thanks to the online casino explosion of the 21st century.
Don’t get us wrong, casino gambling was an absolutely huge industry before online casinos came along, you only have to look at places like Las Vegas to understand that that was wholly the case. However online casinos succeeded in bringing all of these popular card games to the masses who couldn’t visit a proper casino. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular casino games.
Blackjack is widely regarded by gambling historians as being the oldest living casino game in the world, with evidence of it being played centuries ago. In fact, Miguel de Cervantes, a 15th-century Spanish novelist, referred to a game called “Ventiuna” (Spanish for 21) several hundred years ago, proof that blackjack has been around for a lot longer than simply the last two centuries.
And there should be no real surprise there either because blackjack is an incredibly simple and exciting game to play at Indian lotteries. It also gives some of the best odds available out of all the different casino games, so no wonder so many people enjoy playing it.
Is there another casino game that has as much cultural relevance as poker? The game has been presented in countless films, TV series and novels, making it one of the most in-demand casino games to this day. The thing about poker is that it pits you against other players much more than the majority of other casino games, and this makes it all the more exciting.
There are various different types of poker available to play these days, but the most popular variant is most probably Texas Hold ‘Em. You can play poker in pretty much any casino you go to, and it is also available online.
Roulette blew many gamblers away when it first appeared in the 1800s, and it was pretty much solely responsible for the massive expansion of casinos in that era, something that actually resulted in the banning of casinos from most places other than Monte Carlo. You just cannot beat the dynamic nature of roulette, it is incredibly exciting and there is nothing else quite like it to be found in the casino.
One thing to remember about roulette is that there are actually two types of roulette available to the public: European and American. Make sure you are playing the European version, as the odds of winning are much higher.
Slots are the biggest success story of the 20th and 21st centuries, attracting quite literally hundreds of thousands of new gamblers to bitcoin casinos – you just cannot beat them.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
