Online Casinos To Thrive Amid Covid-19
23 Mar

With the coronavirus pandemic in full swing, governments are ordering lockdowns around the world. Entire populations are being ordered to stay at home with many businesses being forced to close indefinitely.

Not to talk down the seriousness of this situation, but there has been a notable increase in online poker traffic over the last month on many platforms. Another area where we can expect to see a similar increase is the online casino world. 

Fresh and Exciting

Sites such as will tell you all you need to know about where to find the most up to date fresh and exciting games.

Long gone are the days of roulette and blackjack being pretty much all there is to play. The online casino niche has been thriving for a long time and during the covid-19 crisis we can expect it to grow even more.

New Jersey Casinos On the Up

Sonoma Sun reported recently that New Jersey casinos were doing extremely well. An impressive 20 consecutive months of growth in revenue shows that the industry is as healthy as it ever has been.

Terry Glebocki, CEO of Ocean Casino Resort, said:

“January was our seventh consecutive month of double-digit growth.” 

Online casinos in New Jersey are also having a great time of it. In January, revenues saw a year-on-year increase of a whopping 64%. In monetary terms, $21 million.

John O’Reilly, a gambling analyst for said:

“With the current trajectory, $700 million in yearly online gambling revenues is possible in 2020, something most would have claimed impossible not that long ago.“ 

Never Been a Better Time

There’s never been a better time for people to give the online casinos a try. It’s almost certain that a high percentage of the world’s population will soon be confined to their homes for all but essential travel.

For those who look like losing a planned trip to gambling Mecca Las Vegas, you can get that same adrenaline with the new online games that you probably haven’t even seen before.

There’s tons to take a look at while you’re holed up in your house waiting for normality to return to life.

If you’re not in the mood for a spot of online poker you also won’t have the live streaming of prestigious events to look forward to. All events of note right now have been cancelled or postponed.

It’s going to be a tough few months at least for most of us, but at least in most places we can still have a flutter when we feel like it.
