Simply stated, our trust in technology can make or break an industry, particularly industries where risk and/or chance is involved, such as online gambling. While we may be living in the technology age, and kids today seem to have technology and gadgets coursing through their veins, there is a rather large demographic of individuals who are not quite so anxious to become tech savvy themselves. While day to day life in modern society requires some level of technological knowledge, there are people who try to keep that requirement to a bare minimum. Why is this? Why are they not excited about all the technological advances which seem to make life so much easier?
There are several reasons that people avoid becoming slaves to technology, and hence avoid the online gambling scene altogether. Such a huge dependency on technology can make people feel like they do not have control of the circumstances surrounding their finances, as well as other areas of their lives which are driven by technology. These people actually think about the possibility of a day when nobody has power, all computers go down, and they are unable to make financial transactions, which prohibits them from buying food, and the fear factor just escalates from there. Because the banks depend on technology to function, people who do not trust technology often worry about the safety and accessibility of their money. The significant increase in identity theft has not helped these people feel any better about technology. Banking is just one example, but you get the idea.
The online gambling industry has come up with a way to reduce the fear factor in online gambling technology, and increase the trust factor. When it comes to gambling, there is a huge demographic of people that simply do not believe that a computerized version of a casino game could be completely fair. They do not trust that random number generators are the answer, and so they simply refuse to play. Not only are they missing out on some exciting and thrilling gaming, but they could also make a dramatic impact in online casino revenues for casino operators. This being the case, it was in the casino operators’ best interested to find a solution to this issue. It is funny that technological advancements were the key to comforting the fears of those who do not trust technology, but that was exactly the case.
Advancements in Internet connectivity, as well as video and audio web streaming have enabled online casinos to add something to their gaming environment that has changed everything. What could this remarkable tool be? Well, it is called good, old fashioned humanity. Yes, they have added the human factor back into the equation, and online Live Dealer games are revolutionizing the world of online gambling. While most technological advancements strive to eliminate the necessity of humans in certain functions, Live Dealer casinos sought to bring live people back into the game. Online gaming enthusiasts are delighted and a whole new audience of players has joined in on the fun.
