Our blog will touch on a variety of subjects, from the most important stories in all of gaming to some lighter fare that has a betting angle somewhere in it. There’s a lot to cover in the world of casinos, betting, and Internet gambling, but we’ll have it all covered. Keep reading for a look at some of the major categories of stories we’ll post here.
Online Gambling News
Is there a scandal impacting a major operator? A new merger between two of the largest software providers in the industry? A brand new type of game that’s making waves in online poker? These are the kinds of stories that all players need to know about to keep up to date with this ever changing landscape, and they’ll make up a major part of our blog’s content.
We don’t like to toot our own horn (too much), but hey, sometimes we make our own news. More seriously, we often update GamblingJoe to post new content, make changes to the layout, or add new features that are designed to make the site more user-friendly. If there’s anything going on with GamblingJoe, you’ll hear about it here first.
Gambling is a business like any other, and like any industry, there are a lot of moving parts that are constantly in motion. Major mergers and acquisitions are constantly shaking up who the biggest players are, and new innovations are being unveiled constantly as competitors try to one-up each other. But we’re not only interested in where the industry is now, but where it is going in the future. We’ll look at trends and projections to see what the gaming sector might look like down the road, too.
Legislation and Regulation
One of the biggest areas of change for online gambling is in the way governments are regulating the practice. More and more nations are looking to exercise at least some control over the sites their citizens can play on, and as we’ve seen in the UK, even changes that are relatively simple on the surface can have all sorts of consequences once they are put into action. We’ll also take a look at many issues for brick-and-mortar venues, such as the ongoing debate over the prevalence of FOBTs.
This might be our most popular topic of all! One of the reasons we all love gambling over the Internet is the great promotional offers that sites give to players on a regular basis. While we cover bonuses elsewhere, more unique promotions will be covered here, such as invitations to special live events or loyalty programs that combine live and online play.
We can’t always predict what will catch our eye as newsworthy, but if we think you’ll find it useful or interesting, we’ll make sure to write something about it. When there’s a huge jackpot won somewhere in the world, we want to make sure you hear about it, and we’ll give you lists of the best and worst of the casino industry. From celebrity sightings to bizarre prop bets, no matter how weird or bizarre a story might be, we’ll talk about it if we think you’ll want to hear it.
