Editorial: The future of online gambling

To many new net-gamblers online gambling already seems like the future, but the industry continues to grow and ongoing advancements in gaming software and technology promise some exciting changes in the way we play. Here are a few new online gambling options that are already on the horizon.

Flying Casinos

You may recognize this term from our own news headlines. While the actual concept isn't as whimsical as it sounds (sorry—no slot machine-filled zeppelins) if Ryanair pulls it off it will still be pretty technologically impressive.

Mobile Gambling

This modus of playing already exists through a number of popular online casino-hosted mobile gambling services. M-gaming's share of the gambling market is rising rapidly and analysts predict that the mobile gambling industry will be worth $20 billion or more by 2010. In addition to better graphics, more games and greater accessibility watch out for touch-screen interactivity which will offer a playing experience you simply can't get on a computer.

Betting on Everything

Remember Arnold Schwarzenegger's memorable role in the movie The Running Man where game show contestants competed for their lives while viewers predicted who would die next? While you can't bet on death (yet) sites like BetUS.com and Sportsbook.com have received a lot of attention for some of their radical wagering options, including this year's National Spelling Bee. Sportsbook is also already taking bets on the 2012 elections; maybe they should reconsider their name.

Online Gambling Legalized in the U.S.

This is a headline many of our readers (and writers) would dearly love to see. Keep an eye on Rep. Frank's bills this September as they go before Congress. Most states are already pushing for gambling expansion, and the re-legalization of online gambling is the next obvious step. If you can have online gambling in the air, how in the heck is it not in the U.S.?!

Games Games Games

In addition to hundreds of new variations on what's already hot (multi-line animated slots, live poker, blackjack) expect previously underappreciated games like Crazy Pineapple, 3-card and 4-card poker to get a boost in popularity as jaded players seek out the next big thing. Interactivity will continue to be a buzz word as government lotteries go online and suffering live sports like horse racing and boxing turn to webcasts for a new audience.
