2008 was a dark year for the global economy. The financial crisis incessantly haunted by the headlines and lay like a black cloth over even the most clever business idea – regardless of whether one-time gains with the causes of the crisis was linked. Only one sector, it seemed, proved himself bravely in the financial landslide: Given constant numbers were good online casinos all the dangers with a confident smile face.
It became apparent a unique success story. The sales flourished in the digital gambling dens like weddings, profits drove one in usual sizes and observers had already almost want to believe that we have found the waterproof business on the Internet. Unfortunately, they were wrong. Must still turbulent waves of the recession, now beaten the online casinos. As a late consequence of the crisis is a part of the profits was washed away until further notice.
Not all profits sank but meaningless in the floods. The Party Gaming plc, based in Gibraltar acquired unceremoniously with the bingo company Cashcade Ltd. has become successful. A non-negligible amount had to be applied in addition to the World Poker Tour start as a rights holder. PartyGaming, the recession may therefore used in order to connect to existing resources in smart moves. The company’s profits, but the investments have undoubtedly diminished even further.
Suddenly appear critics warn of an imminent collapse of the online casinos and players call in hetzerischem tone for blackjack and poker back in traditional theaters. But a look at the conditions at the tables and machines in Atlantic City and Las Vegas provides rapid disenchantment: Never the financial crisis was in the two sanctuaries of international adventurers truer than now. In Asia as the white flag was hoisted. As Far Eastern competition is occurring in iridescent Macau casinos have to suffer from the crisis, as well as their American relatives.
Premature panic is in the case of online casinos, therefore, entirely inappropriate. The constant availability of offers on the internet enthusiastic players eventually continue and guarantees in times of crisis good business. Who tends to be black as picturesque exaggerations sitting, probably in the board room of the respective operator and wishes still achieve better times. It is obvious that in the digital world to the big celebration to another, more modest feast follows. With mild hangover, but that without a financial disaster for the online casinos.
