    If you want to know how the Internet has changed gaming since the last decade you just need to delve into your drawers and pull out some of the black and white pictures of your grandparents and try to find some resemblance.

    Over the last decade, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds and nowhere is this feature more apparent than in the gaming industry. Just consider what we had 10 years ago and you will get an opportunity to see how new technology in the online gaming and online casino industries have been evolving. Given below are the four top technological developments, which have radically changed how we are playing games presently.

    Online gaming

    The best thing about online gaming is that it connects you with other like-minded gamers from throughout the world. Unlike in the past when it was introduced and there was an annoying lag time because the Internet connection was often shaky you would be left with frustration rather than any enjoyment or entertainment. Presently online gaming has achieved immense popularity because of technological developments with the Internet.

    Better graphics

    Way back 10 years ago you could go online to find a website which allowed you to play the original Super Mario Brothers which was considered one of the best. Now attempt the same task with Mario Kart and you will see a major difference in the graphical displays, which will make you wonder the kind of suffering you had to undergo earlier.

    Gaming is popular with everyone

    Having mobile devices to play games isn't a new phenomenon because devices were available even during the late 80s and early 90s. However, the ease of access and a wide range of games had not been introduced in those days. Now you can even play real casino games and even get casino reviews if you want to understand whether a casino is legitimate or not. Mobile gaming has now become extremely popular and major companies are investing millions of dollars in apps just to advertise during popular events to promote gaming.

    The introduction of cloud-based technology

    This technology is believed to be a change for the better for gamers. Apart from freeing up space on the computer, cell phone or game console games can become even more accessible to everyone with the use of cloud-based technology. Perhaps the biggest issues gamers are confronted with is to ensure that their device has sufficient memory or is good enough properly to play the game. Cloud-based technology has the potential to free the gamer from making large investments for purchasing the hardware required for the gaming without compromising on the quality of the game.

    The changes that are presently being seen cannot be attributed simply to the development which is evident with Internet service providers. To a certain extent, the industry of gaming must also be given credit for making major changes to the games they had initially introduced and improved the quality of the games.

    The Internet is largely responsible for changing the gaming industry but it would be grossly unfair only to mention the Internet and withhold credit from the gaming industry that has worked equally hard to stay up to date with the technological developments that were introduced from the mid and late 90s. The gaming industry would still be the same as before if things had been left just to the Internet without the cooperation of the industry.
