An obvious impulse, for example in the world of chess, came with the release of the Netflix series The Queen of Chess, last fall. The series immediately jumped to the top of the charts of the most viewed TV series not only in the last year, but also among the most viewed in the entire history of the TV series in relation to the numbers achieved in the first months after its release. The protagonist Beth Harmon and her exciting story have fascinated many people, not only in Italy but also in the rest of the world, with the consequence of an uncontrolled proliferation by those who approached the world of chess as a “new” player.
Even poker and all major online casino games have experienced great growth, thanks also to the implementation of live-streaming services, one of the most accentuated novelties of this historical period as evidenced by the success of Twitch, a platform dedicated to this service. Being able to play “live” with your friends, creating private rooms, or playing online with players of all nationalities was one of the keys that led to the great depopulation of the world of online games. Roulette, poker and blackjack have been the games with the highest degree of appreciation, as evidenced by the trends in physical casinos of the last decades, but baccarat and other more specific games have also definitely taken hold. In the last year and a half, therefore, the habits of millions (if not billions) of people have changed radically: a change that, among other things, has affected the passions and hobbies of all of us.
