Casino Games Through the Years


Something has to start somewhere. That’s also the case with Casino Games.



In the beginning, European casinos were dominated by the spin of the wheel, basically, because roulette was considered king then. When the Americans invaded the scene, they introduced the gaming population to the world of poker and many other table games. Afterwards, slot machines were made and were infused into the arena. Those three important games that make up the most part of casino history also went through several evolutions over the years.

Roulette Spins

Roulette is still much the same thing as it was close to a hundred years ago. The manner of spinning the wheel and what comes out of it is left unchanged. Only the prizes at stake are different now. Obviously, the spin in the game of roulette was quite slow and that’s probably because other games have outshined it.

Poker Changes

As opposed to roulette, poker and the table games have come a long way since they were first introduced. In fact, there are many variations of the game currently available. Among the top choices include Caribbean Stud, Three-Card Poker, and Blackjack.

Through the years, world poker tournaments were also held, putting renowned players against each other to play their luck and wit in order to end up with the prize pot.

Slot Shifts

Slots also changed a lot compared to what the old machines used to do. Modern slot machines can do more than the usual spin and stop. There are also a variety of games available, along with amazing pay tables. It is no longer impossible to play high stakes with a game of slots. Just to give a perspective on how much diversity exists in the slot games world - slots nowadays can be about comic book movies (such as X-Men slot) to movie promotions (the new Jurrasic Park movie wasn't released yet, but slot lovers already have a chance to play the game based on the old movie to raise brand awareness) to mythological tales becoming slots (Thunderstruck series). You can see more examples here (and even play some of them), but you get the point - it's huge."

The Gaming Evolution

It is not just the games that went through a makeover through the years. Casino gaming in itself has changed incredibly as well. If finding the best casinos before is all about going around the circuit of casino resorts and hotels, it is now about going online or mobile. The mobile casino is more popular because it has many advantages, such as the option to play anywhere and anytime. Furthermore, today's players are looking for short games when they're on the road and the mobile meets this need.There are many mobile casino games therefore it's important to find the best mobile casinos.

Activision R&D showed stunning real-time character rendering

General Gaming News

At the Game Developers Conference 2013 (GDC) Activision's Research and Development (R&D) Team showed their updated portfolio with photorealistic characters.

“We show how each detail is the secret for achieving reality," writes Activision Blizzard technical director Jorge Jiminez on his blog. "For us, the challenge goes beyond entertaining; it’s more about creating a medium for better expressing emotions, and reaching the feelings of the players.”

His team's separable subsurface scattering shader has progressed dramatically in the last couple of months, and has now been applied to the character's eyes.

Xbox One - Battlefield 4 will implement Kinect functionality



Xbox One - Battlefield 4 will implement Kinect functionality


Battlefield 4 on Xbox One will implement some sort of Kinect functionality, though DICE isn't really talking specifics yet. DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson says that DICE has "a pretty pragmatic view" on Kinect and that due to the series' emphasis on skill, input is a big factor when designing features – so motion controls are out.

"You need to have very precise control over what's going on, and trying to do something like that with motion control input does not make sense – not if you want to keep the same kind of formula of the game as we [have] now. You'd need to build a different kind of shooter," Troedsson said in the latest issue of Game Informer (via Videogamer). "But there are other places where it will make sense, and we are going to use it for other things in the game, but we haven't announced exactly what." Voice commands? That seems like the obvious choice, though it's purely speculation at this point.

Battlefield 4, which runs on the Frostbite 3 engine and resurrects the series' Commander mode, is set to launch on October 29. Battlefield 4 will be available on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
