Playful entertainment, over the years, has undergone a notable evolution. All this is also due to changes in times and in society, without forgetting the incredible development brought about by technology
With the advent of the new millennium, in fact, the so-called digital era began. A new world in which, among other things, licensed gaming platforms and secure online casinos were born. But let’s take a closer look at how such an evolution took place.
The various steps of the online playful growth process
We have therefore mentioned a process of technological and cultural growth of society which has also led to research in the field of play as a direct consequence. Like other spheres of social action, online gaming has also undergone changes over the years. We have gone from cards to slot machines up to the flourishing development of casinos and clubs for gambling and betting at 360 degrees.
L’ultimo step: internet
In short, a growing parable of what has since become a flourishing economic sector. Multiple evolutionary steps have led to this apex which today is under everyone’s eyes. The last of these, which in fact has proposed and established itself as the new frontier of online gaming, is the Internet. A context in which an innumerable variety of gaming sites and platforms have been born and have alternated up to now.
The transition from physical to digital
Therefore, if before entertainment was conceived in a materialistic way, with the arrival of the new millennium, and in this case of the 2000s, all this has moved into the virtual sphere. A transposition that currently allows you to count an unlimited range of betting portals, digital slots, online bingo and so on and so forth.
A real invasion made possible also by the diffusion of devices with the most disparate characteristics and formats: smartphone, tablet, notebook, 2 in 1 (convertible), PC etc. In this way, any form of digital play product is practically at hand. Obviously we are talking about a continuous and huge offer both in qualitative and quantitative terms.
How the bookmakers have run for cover
Behind this constant online proposal there is the interest of the managers of the various services and platforms that through various bonuses and incentives enrich their possibilities of capturing the user’s attention. And it is precisely this aspect that has sanctioned the leap from the single portal or virtual game site to the development of a “galaxy” of competitive portals. Most of them then invested above all in the growing panorama of virtual sports. An attractive betting object that has evolved like interactive online gaming spaces to meet the needs of consumers.
Summarizing, therefore, if in the beginning it was possible to understand this online game as an absolute novelty but univocal (in terms of its diffusion), over the years this concept has vanished to make room for a plurality (or it would be the case of say a network) of coexisting platforms. The web, therefore, has in effect constituted itself as the virtual emotional counterpart of the real traditional play mechanism.
