I know that Casinos are very popular in the U.S. and other countries who saw this as an opportunity to boost tourism and their economy. It is a popular game not only among the Americans but also the Europeans and Asians too. My hubby once visited HongKong and saw the glittering lights of big buildings for Casinos there. It is a serious game for the players and betters but also a serious business for the operators. Nowadays, online games are popular in the west and other developed countries.. they cater those who are willing to play the game in the comfort of their homes or offices. I believe that this will become popular too in other places.
