While there’s no denying the simple thrills and excitement abound at brick and mortar casinos, the industry is following an overall trend towards the digital world. Nowhere is that more evident than at the recent Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, as the hot topic on everyone’s lips was once again the online gambling world.
