Five Fascinating Facts About Online Casinos

Casinos have always been portrayed as glamorous, with some of the most famous films, such as James Bond, set in Vegas. That’s because there is a distinct mystery associated with this setting. So, how does that translate to internet casinos? There is nothing like a dress code in web casinos. That means you shouldn’t be surprised to see players in their pajamas merrily clicking on “Spin the Wheel” while collapsing on their sofa. That said, online casinos have some fascinating facts you need to know. Here are five of those.

How Old?

 While the popularity of online casinos has skyrocketed only recently, these gaming platforms are as old as the internet itself. When the internet was first used in 1991, Microgaming, a household name in the casino gaming realm, wasted no time launching a site known as the Gaming Club only three years later (1994). Yes, we must appreciate that graphics and other features have massively moved on since then, and the games look more professional and slicker than their original clunky versions. With augmented reality and virtual reality already in operation, online casinos are expected to undergo more fine-tuning, resulting in even more popularity.

The House Never Sleeps

The house, in this instance, stands for the casino. Did you know that online casinos don’t need actual staff to operate? Now you know. Most online casino games are automated, so you can access and play them anytime; in the morning, noon, evening, or midnight.

Slots Are the Most Popular Casino Games Online

No other casino game is played by more people than slots. In fact, no game comes close. Although different players have different preferences, slots remain the kings. That’s why finding an online casino without hundreds of slots is a tall order. Maybe, people just love the mindless fun after a hectic day in the workplace, or the rules of craps, blackjack, baccarat, or roulette are “too hard” to master. Whatever the reason, slots are streets ahead in terms of popularity.

Roulette is Also Called the Devil’s Game

The reason behind the nickname is pretty interesting. Try to add up all the numbers displayed on the roulette wheel, and you will end up with 666. This is considered the number of the beast, as documented in the Bible. That’s a bit scary, right? Don’t let that put you off, as roulette is one of the most played online casino games. You have about a 50/50 winning chance if you put your money on black in the European Roulette.

The Devil Could Be in the Details

Devil again! Yes, but a different one this time around. Go through that fine print before you rush to your smartphone or computer and press the “Play” button. One player in Italy staked £18 and won £650,000. However, the casino did not pay him, citing a computer error. When he sued the owners, the small print vindicated them since it stated that a computer error equaled zero winnings. The lawsuit fell flat!

For over two decades, Skin Design Tattoos has been a leading name in the tattoo industry. Recently, it opened its flagship studio in the vibrant Soho district of New York City. The launch, sponsored by Philipp Plein and Villon, attracted a glamorous crowd, including top figures from New York’s entertainment and tattoo scenes. Notable attendees included comedian Shiggy, members of VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” and renowned tattoo artist Keith Hernandez. Photographer Josh Sobel elegantly captured the event, which was coordinated by PR professionals Shawn Germain of Tomorrow’s Group and Johnny Donovan.

The studio’s design, featuring sleek lines and raw brick, provides an elegant backdrop for the intricate black and grey realism tattoos that Skin Design is famous for. This aesthetic is echoed in the collections of sponsor Philipp Plein, known for his use of stark lines and intense shading to add depth.

Robert Pho, CEO and Founder of Skin Design, shared his artistic vision at the event, describing his designs as “not just art; they are narratives of life’s stark contrasts, capturing tales of survival, redemption, and transformation.”

The studio is also known for its comprehensive apprenticeship program, where artists like Reena Pho, now a seasoned tattooist at Skin Design, hone their skills under Robert’s mentorship. Robert also hinted at future philanthropic efforts through a non-profit aimed at supporting aspiring artists who face financial constraints.

Since its inception, Robert Pho’s dedication has driven Skin Design Tattoos to international acclaim and a respected position in the tattoo world. The opening of the flagship studio at 285 Lafayette Street in New York is a testament to the brand’s enduring influence and innovation in tattoo artistry.
