The evolution of the gambling industry as a whole has been a non-stop roller coaster ride for avid fans, from the establishment of first casino, Golden Gate (1906), in Las Vegas, to the mobile casino apps played from just about anywhere in the world.
A century ago, Las Vegas was just getting started, emerging over the years into what has become an epicenter of gambling. In 1994, the very first online casino launched, and while many doubted the success of an internet based gaming venue, mostly due to the snail’s pace at which we crawled the world wide web and a notable lack of reliable security measures, look where we are now.
The online gambling industry is one of the largest forms of revenue yielding e-commerce worldwide, and the progression of gambling did not stop there. We now have live dealer casinos, where players can log onto their favorite gambling site and play at real, live blackjack tables with a real dealer standing in a real casino. Around the same time, mobile casino applications were introduced that allow players to log into their online casino accounts and play games for real money on just about any hand-held device with internet capability.
The next obvious step was the combination of the two, and thanks to the advancement of 4G networks, the aptly named Evolution Gaming software development company has done it. Evolution Gaming has launched a live dealer mobile casino app that gives players the ability to gamble in the most realistic of settings, without actually entering a brick-and-mortar casino.
Thus far, the live dealer mobile casino app only supports Live Casino Hold’Em for iOS operating systems. That means only users of Apple iPhones and iPad Tablets are currently able to make use of the new advanced application. But as we all know, once a fresh high-tech idea is set, it progresses at a rapid pace. Surely a compatible app for Smartphones and Android Tablets is in the works, and other table games like blackjack, roulette and baccarat are soon to follow.
Fortunately, for those who don’t like waiting, Evolution Gaming’s competitor, HoGaming, has all-but beat them to the punch. HoGaming, which powers gaming sites like BetVirctor and MyBet, announced in early October the impending launch of its own live dealer mobile casino app, which supports games of blackjack, baccarat and roulette, and is compatible with both iPad and Android powered tablets.
However, a spot check has revealed that these apps have not yet gone live at BetVictor, MyBet or any of the other 8 sites HoGaming powers. Perhaps the announcement was a bit premature, but certainly not uncommon when everyone is striving to be the “first”.
As with traditional online live dealer casinos, the new live mobile casino dealers are all buxom blondes and busty brunettes donning skimpy black dresses to emphasize their ample cleavage; an intentional line of employment intended to appeal to the dominant male clientele.
Although live dealer mobile casinos are still in their earliest stages of infancy, it could easily become the latest and greatest thing to hit the world wide web since SlicedBread.com. (Sorry, exploitive pun there, slicedbread.com isn’t all that great. Maybe if they added some Taio Cruz hits to the playlist?)
