In 1955, an article released by Lifestyle Magazine claimed that the gambling industry was about to end. The article was titled “Las Vegas – Is Boom Overextended?” and it talked about how the present generation during that time was ruining the gambling industry. It said, “A new breed of visitor is showing up… to enjoy the good rooms, food, and shows but – and this is where it hurts – not to gamble. This new generation, the largest in the history of the world, clearly doesn’t have their parents’ and grandparents’ propensity for gambling. Now there are major international pop-culture media announcing that these kids are more interested in bars, music, and entertainment. A generation raised in the high-tech world of gadgetry could not have the attention span to gamble like their greyed elders.” At that time, the boomers were known as the largest generation, but right now, it is expected that the millennial population will … [Read more...] about The Real Deal Between Millennials and Real Money Gaming Online

Today, Shroud of the Avatar dropped its 70th update, adding some new bits of content to the game — including some Halloween-themed stuff. Included in the new content is a new Tier 8+ scene titled Ulfheim. While a scene with the same name already existed, this one is a unique one with its own features rather than a clone of a different one. As mentioned, the update also contains some Halloween-themed content. This includes the return of Pumpkin Head and his minions. The villain is hanging out in the pumpkin patch in East Vauban Foothills where players will be able to slay him and steal some goodies from him or his lackeys. Other Halloween content includes the addition of Nightmares rare and (fiery) boss level horses for players to conquer. As always, the update also contains plenty of fixes, quality of life changes, new store items, and more. Details on all of this are available on the Shroud of the Avatar site. … [Read more...] about Pumpkin Head Celebrates Halloween In Shroud Of The Avatar
