Online Gambling “Viral Explosion” in America?

Online Gambling “Viral Explosion” in America?


You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension… a dimension of social distancing… a dimension where toilet paper is a precious
commodity. We’ve just crossed over… into a Twilight Zone. Hello friends! And welcome to the shelter-in-place edition of This Week in Gambling! Las Vegas is closed. Atlantic City is closed. Monaco and Macau are closed. In fact, at this point, I don’t even think you can buy a damn lottery
ticket at the 7-eleven! However, just because the world has come to
a screeching halt because of a pandemic doesn’t mean that it’s all bad news. In fact, the corona virus is having a surprising effect for one industry… and that is this week’s big story. Now let me preface this by saying I realize people have died from this. In no way am I trying to make light of that. However the simple truth is that when land-based casinos shut their doors, players still want to play. And these days, more and more, they’re looking online… even in America! However, the big news is not that players are heading to web-based gambling
sites, No no! It’s that land-based casinos, sports books
and poker rooms are hemorrhaging money every day and they may have to seriously consider going
online just to survive! In states where online gambling is legal operators are seeing a surge in new players, even as land-based operators watch their profits
evaporate. And in states where gambling is legal, but they haven’t regulated online gambling, believe me… they’re taking notice of this. States that have resisted or dragged their
heels on this whole “internet gambling” thing due
to moral objections or perhaps thinking it would cut into their tax revenues, well… they may have to rethink that strategy… and soon! And when they do, my friends… that could lead to an online gambling revolution in America. So while this coronavirus is certainly not a good thing, ironically it could fast-track internet gambling legislation in some states. Online casinos and poker rooms could see a rebirth here in the US… Sports betting? That may take a while… because no one’s playing any games to bet
on! This
week’s brand-new game review is for the My Cousin Vinny slot machine from our friends at Aristocrat. A five reel, four row game with the Xtra Reel Power feature, giving players 1,024 ways to win! Delivered on the Arc Double cabinet it comes with a frequent wheel bonus and a start up progressive of $500,000!

And if you click that bell you’ll get updates every time we upload a new video. Finally this week, in these trying times the Miami Herald has published an article about what you can use if you run out of toilet paper… including tissues, napkins… paper towels! Although those things might not be safe to
flush. Funny they didn’t mention you could use the Miami Herald. Believe it or not, they recommended baby wipes, tampons store
receipts, even the cardboard tube leftover from the roll of toilet paper! I don’t know why they didn’t recommend corncobs! You know, I remember as a kid standing in my neighbor’s yard throwing rolls of toilet paper up into their trees, and watching them cascade all around. If I’d only known… If I’d only known! Time to make the donuts!
