Continue to the downtown area of Las Vegas, and don’t miss our 360 degree tour of Fremont Street. This street was where it all began, from a small railroad stop at the turn of the century to one of the brightest streets in the world. Fremont street was one of the best places to cruise in a convertible car for decades but now the street has been closed off to traffic and it is a pedestrian paradise lined with kiosks, souvenir shops and of course plenty of casinos.  Up above an arched steel canopy lights up the night sky with an animated, electronic show that spans the entire four blocks of Fremont Street. Further down Fremont Street is the newly developing non-gaming sector of  “Fremont East District” lined with Bars, Coffee shops and places to eat, including newly opened Container Park.

Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between Arizona and Nevada.

Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over one hundred lives. The cost of the construction was $49 million dollars and was completed two years ahead of schedule. The dam was controversially named after President Herbert Hoover.

The Evolution of Online Gambling

September 16, 2016

Casino ChipsThese last few years or so have seen a revolution in online gambling, no longer it is considered as a somewhat shady operation, in fact the industry is widely respected for its transparency and fairness towards its customers, so what has changed?

Firstly it is a matter of course that as the number of people that enjoy to gamble online increases then, just the same as any other ecommerce business, gambling online has become a credible, established alternative to bricks and mortar venues.

Now, online gambling has proven to be so popular and has become so well organised that no legitimate operator would even think of possibly ripping off any of his customers as it would certainly damage the future of his business, bad new travels quickly over the internet.

Choice is the name of the game with online gambling, there is now a massive selection of games to choose from and a wide selection of top quality casinos to play at.  Most of the most popular games are offered with variations, for an example, if you play Conquer Casino you can play a complete selection of games including slots, a live casino, a full range of table games plus a great selection of jackpot games and for those who like to play on the go there is a great mobile option available.

This greater variety of games compared to those offered at a bricks and mortar venue is what pulls in a lot of people, and because any successful online business wants to protect its reputation besides guarding its integrity then players can enjoy their time spent online knowing that their safety and security have been covered by the site.

Today, games are offered with high quality graphics, audio and video clips to enhance player experience and gameplay is almost seamless with pages loading and opening up almost seamlessly.

One tip for the new player would be to invest a little of their own cash at a time when they first go online, this is to make sure that the site suits you and gives you the type of bonuses and promotional offers that appeal. Another tip is to read a few reviews on the sites that jump out at you. These reviews are much like the ones you will look at before you commit any of your money online and work in the same way, rating and ranking the casinos on their performance in the market.

It is a simple fact that millions of people like to gamble and those people come from all sectors of life.  The reasons behind this are the same whether they gamble in physical venues like casinos, betting shops or race tracks, or indeed whether they have a bet online. Taking a gamble is in-bred into our societies or none of us would ever cross a road or make a decision, so using this trait as a form of entertainment is natural.

One thing is for certain, and that is that online gambling is here to stay, whether we use our computers or mobile devices to source our favourite casino games, online gambling provides a little bit of excitement with the possibility of a win and if we keep any bets to a sensible amount, the thrill of this type of entertainment can be one of the best to experience.
