The entire landscape of gambling has actually changed for the past year or so, and it will continue to change for a few more months to come. Well, people have now started getting vaccinated and, things may actually go back to normal. I would like to imagine a future where I can go to a casino which is completely crowded by people who are vaccinated. There will be a bouncer outside the door who checks my vaccination certificate and let me in without a mask required. It has been more than a year or so since I have had to go to a public space wearing a mask. I am definitely tired of it.
Vaccines are proving to be quite effective because they have more than a 95% efficacy rate. The vaccines are a new ray of hope to us.
If you are vaccinated, I suggest you carry your vaccination certificate everywhere you go. Land casinos around the world have implemented new rules and regulations which are attempting to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Most of the states in the United States of America have allowed land-based casinos to reopen under very strict rules and regulations across the entire country. On the other hand, we are looking at a 20% surge in demand for online casinos, which actually started during the lockdown.
It is actually very simple. When land-based casinos had to shut down, people turned to online casinos for their gambling efforts. Well, when God closes a door, he opens a window indeed. Online casinos became very popular in the world. Most of the people actually started preferring online casinos when compared to land-based casinos, because of the imminent threat that lies in public spaces. The demand for online casinos is actually projected to remain steady. Most of the new customers who gain a lot of perspective because of the lockdown actually started liking online casinos.
A lot of the land-based casinos in Las Vegas and other popular places are implementing plans for the post-COVID-19 era. I would like to make you understand that things are not going to be the same for a really long time. Well, it will take a couple of years to completely vaccinate billions of people with the COVID-19 vaccination. But, it doesn’t mean that the world will never go back to normal.
We need to implement a new normal. Just like how we have implemented a new normal now, we need to start adapting to this new world where COVID-19 still plays a significant role. Even though you may be vaccinated, millions of other people may still not be vaccinated. And that is why, we should always stay vigilant.
