From one day to the next, all land based casinos were suddenly closed. This means that many players that were going to the casino for their regular night out are now bound to their homes. These players are looking for alternatives and not surprisingly, end up searching for these alternatives online. For these players, online gambling can be quite overwhelming compared to the land based casinos. Money is much more abstract when it’s simply a figure on your screen. Making online gambling more riskfull than what they were used to. The game can be more ‘swingy’. In this article we’ll help these players on the way, managing their budget and explaining the differences between offline gambling and online gambling in a lockdown.
90% revenue drop due to gambling lockdown
But first, let’s go back six months. In many countries casinos have been locked down. Revenue has gone down by 90% in Las Vegas and Macau since the global corona pandemic. That is major. Unprecedented major. The industry has shown resilience though by being innovating and strict on themselves and their customers. In Macau you can only enter the casino when taking a corona-test in the casino itself as well as a temperature measurement. The test is around eleven euros and you get the result within the hour. A great alternative for the government funded tests that can have a long waiting period.
