There has been an ongoing debate as to whether the brick-and-mortar casinos will survive with the increase in online versions and options to play virtually soon to be commonplace. It is a complicated issue for many in New Orleans as there are over fifty (50) casinos in the area and a change such as this could affect the culture, entertainment and overall feeling and vibe of the city.
However, there are assorted reasons as to why the New Orleans casinos will persevere unlike in Australia where places like wolfwinner online casino have begun to dominate the sector. Yes, Louisianna has recently looked to allow and license online casinos, to keep in line with other States in the region and meet the needs of local players and gamers. such as those aforementioned, but it is arguably the actual bricks and mortar casinos that will remain the most popular in New Orleans.
History of casinos in New Orleans
From the very earliest days of the riverboats on the Mississippi where card games dominated, Louisiana and New Orleans in particular have been the hub for casinos in the area. It’s simple, in that the better known the area is for casinos and a good night out in these entertainment venues the more likely customers have been prepared to travel and visit the area.
There is a wealth of other entertainment drawing in the tourists
The casinos all benefit from the overall lure of tourists to the area, whether its carnival, the food or just the history and culture of New Orleans those who come to visit and eat, and sight see, generally end up playing a few hands in a famous casino as part of the overall experience. It is the overall tourism numbers and demand for the historical and traditional that is keeping the real-life casinos booming in New Orleans.
One of the main sources of revenue for the area
Online casinos have been a huge source of revenue for the online entertainment sector as a whole and growing all the time. However, it is not necessarily a great earner for local states. The bricks and mortar casinos are one of the biggest contributors to state taxes and revenue generation in New Orleans and as such they are supported and promoted as a state resource.
It has been an ongoing argument which reached its peak during the recent pandemic as the se casinos and entertainment venues saw less footfall and shortened closing hours. There was even a surge towards the opening and establishment of New Orleans online casinos in the theme of the aforementioned wolf winner. However as soon as socializing restrictions were lifted it was clear by the return of the numbers of customers and clients that the bricks and mortar ( and the remaining river boat) casinos are in New Orleans for the long haul. They are part of our history and as such should remain a part of our tourism and entertainment offerings.
