Reviving an old tradition with the help of new technology
Spending a night out at the casinos is one of the better ways of taking a break from the rigors of everyday life. There’s the beauty of the neon-lit night sky, the glitz and the glamor of each and every gaming establishment, the general high-spirited atmosphere of these places’ patrons: all the ingredients needed to make one hell of a memorable night.
And of course, lest we forget, there’s also the fashion.
These days, even the more swanky casinos allow people to come in and play as long as they’re wearing shoes and a decent shirt or blouse. That said, there are still many casino aficionados who cling to the old tradition of dressing up to the nines for a grand night of gaming. In fact, some places practically call for it (even if not every guest necessarily adheres to it) such as the very elegant Casino de Monte Carlo and Germany’s Casino Baden-Baden, where every direction you look, there’s bound to be someone in a tux, a three-piece, or an evening gown.
The advent of online casino gaming has made this erstwhile dressing-up tradition seem even more obsolete; but that doesn’t mean it has to die out completely. IGT is one of the pioneers of online gaming with live video feeds, featured on the website of online gaming distributor Castle Jackpot. Although these so-called “live casinos” obviously can’t fully replicate the full atmosphere of the bricks-and-mortar casino experience, they are able to emulate the feel of it.
With the pseudo-realism provided by this relatively new sub-branch of online casino gaming, players might just be compelled to go the whole nine yards with the virtual experience by dressing for the occasion, if only for the fun of it.
