Australian Casinos Continue to Lead the Way

It seems like the global economic downturn is a story that won’t go away. Europe continues to stare down financial hardship, with Greece in turmoil and Spain close to the edge. The economy has dominated the early debate in the upcoming American election, and growth in China and Brazil has decreased this year, adding more concerns to the mix.

But there are rays of light, and there are sectors that are finding a way to succeed and to grow even in these trying times. One of those sectors is gambling, and in the Asia-Pacific region especially the industry has more than held its own, growing in 2011 and set for further growth this year. And at the forefront of that success are the Australian Casinos.

It’s an IBIS report from last week that caught our attention, and the news is good: 3.3% predicted growth for online gambling in Australia and Asia. Obviously the arrival of the online casinos more than a decade ago shook things up for the gambling industry, but the response has been nothing short of incredible.

Australia boasts some of the world’s finest casinos in Crown Melbourne and Sydney’s The Star, and if James Packer has his way, then more Australian cities will play host to world-renowned casino resorts in the not-too-distant future.

But the real numbers are playing online. Australia is a big country, and we can’t all free up a weekend very easily to take a trip to our favourite casinos. Online casinos are the perfect solution, bringing the ever-popular pokies straight to your living room, alongside always-improving variations on the classic Casino Games we all know and love.

We have our favourites, of course, but there are a dozen or so well-established online casinos on the market – like Spin Palace Casino and 32Red – that we’d recommend to anyone. Even better, most are currently throwing their weight behind the release of mobile casinos that bring all the qualities of the online casinos to your smartphone for totally mobile gaming, anytime.

Alongside the success of the online casinos is the explosion of Poker in Australia. The game has a swelling following right from grass roots Poker clubs in pubs across the country, through to Australian players at the big international events, the glamour of the Aussie Millions Tournament, and the arrival of the WSOP to our shores this year.

If the gambling industry is going to keep growing, you can be sure that Poker will be a big part of it, and you can be sure, too, that Australian Casinos, and Australia-facing online casinos, will continue to be amongst the very best in the world.
