The online gambling industry has maintained its rapid growth in the last decade, and it is showing no signs of slowing down. Industry projections anticipate revenues of about $80 billion by 2023 thanks to a compound annual growth rate of 10% in the six years from 2017 to 2023. That is tremendous growth, and online gambling houses that dominate the market share, continue to attract more visitors. The appeal of online gambling is seen in the fact that 11% of all internet traffic comes from online casino players.

Traffic is, therefore, the lifeline for online gambling, and in a competitive niche, the challenge is attracting new clients while at the same time maintaining the casino's most frequent visitors. Despite these efforts, the number of online...

Betting on sporting activities is as old as time itself. The ancient Romans actually placed bets also called wagers on their favourite gladiator champions to win in the famed gladiator fights of ancient history, and while it is true that the losses can be quite devastating, the profits can be quite huge also.

But these days, it is not uncommon to come across people who speak negatively about sports betting; unfortunately, these people don’t have the full picture.


Betting on sporting activities can not only be a profitable pastime, done right, it can also be a great investment of your time and money.

Its driven by technology

Not too long ago, betting on sporting activities was more gambling than investing. This was because bettors mostly picked teams at random, hoping that their choice will win. This resulted into huge amount of losses that has turned a lot of people away from betting.

But these...

We’ve all heard of the big hitters of sports video games. In fact, we’ve probably played most of them as well.

Games like FIFA Football, Madden, NBA 2K, MLB The Show, and even WWE. They’re officially licensed games that let their players recreate the action they’ve seen on TV and put themselves in the shoes of their favourite sports stars.

The Demographic Reason for the Success of Certain Sports Games

These games hit a sweet spot between sports with large numbers of followers, and sports with demographics that enjoy playing video games. Sports outside of this sweet spot are likely to struggle in achieving similar levels of success.

For example, horse racing is the sport with the third highest average age of followers (63) in the United States. In contrast, the average age of a video...

One area where gaming has been completely transformed during the last ten years is the level of competition between players. And we’re not talking a couple of games of FIFA with a mate on a Friday night after work.

Recent estimates suggest that the global esports industry is worth close to $140bn and enjoying growth in excess of 10% year on year. The top-earning players, competing professionally on games like Dota 2 and Fortnite, are pocketing amounts well into seven figures.

Johan Sundstein has earned close to $7m over the course of his career, while at least 80 players have drawn in over a million. That number is growing rapidly as more and more seasoned gamers turn to esports as a means of transforming their hobby into a very lucrative living.

And as the esports scene continues to explode in popularity, so too does the market for betting on the outcomes of matches. For generations, fans have enhanced their sports viewing...

Grand Theft Auto V is widely regarded as one of the biggest video gaming hits of the last decade, with Marketwatch in 2018 even going so far as to claim that it should be viewed as the most financially successful media title of all time.


However, while you would think interest in a game which has been around since 2013 would be on the wane by now, the title is still going strong thanks to its web-based multiplayer mode GTA Online. Furthermore, Rockstar Games has now confirmed that two new updates released last year helped to drive interest in the online platform to a whole new level.

A major hit

In a statement released at the end of January, Rockstar confirmed it was offering major bonuses in GTA Online as it celebrates breaking...

We often see that there are plenty of free spins being offered at online casinos, but more often they are offered to new players, who open their casino accounts. New players can get free spins a s apart of a welcome bonus for their registration at the casino. There are different welcome bonuses and start up bonuses that are awarded to new customers who sign up at the casino. But what about the old faithful casino players, who also need to be awarded with some bonuses and gifts? If you play at the Danish casinos you can find information about both welcome bonuses and bonuses for existing players at https://asgardcasinodk.com.


Therefore, we would like to focus more on existing players who also want a little extra bonus a few times a week or a month.

As it's an enormous industry, finding only legitimate casino reviews can be time-consuming and confusing. Let us narrow down the list to do the hard work for you.

What to look out for in a legitimate online casino review

As with any form of entertainment, fake and illegitimate reviews within the world of online casinos are a real and constant problem. Whether through laziness or reasons more nefarious, both veterans and newer iGaming enthusiasts can potentially fall for these traps.

So how can we be sure that fans are getting real reviews, and where might we find such places?

Get Real

As with any industry, the best place to source unbiased reviews is not random individuals but rather respected and niche sources. Websites dedicated to the best online casino reviews like bestcasinosites.net are built by professional...

RDR2vsGTAV.png
There's no denying that of all of the gems in the sprawling Rockstar empire, none have been more commercially and culturally successful than the Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto game series. Both have generated over $1 billion in revenue for Rockstar, making them the most lucrative video games ever released, whilst setting new records for the size and scope of their respective in-game open worlds, as well as their staggering production costs.


However, it's clear that of the two, one has proven superior over the other. GTAV has sold an astonishing 115 million copies as of the time of writing, compared to "only" 25 million sales for RDR2. Naturally, GTAV has been on the market for several years longer than RDR2, and the selling power of the GTA brand is always going to be a tough...

Casino bonuses are great for players seeking additional cash to play all the games they desire along with the opportunity to win even more cash. Bonuses provide great advantages, especially with casinos that offer fair terms and conditions along with wagering requirements that don’t make it impossible to reach. Of course, this might take some searching, but it also helps to understand what each bonus is about, what it offers and why the terms and conditions are different.


With free spin casino bonuses, you can always expect a longer list of terms and conditions, which doesn’t mean it unfair, but rather that the bonus has more to explain than you’ll find with a regular offer. Free spins are unique as the casino lets you play the most popular games with spin and then rewards you with bonus cash from those spins, which can be used for other games. In more ways than one, it means you’re scoring more than you...
