The hurricanes that hit along the Gulf Coast of the United States in the 2005 Atlantic tropical hurricane season took with them many casinos. This has a dire effect on the economy because the casinos hired so many people and brought in so many tourist dollars to the area.
Some companies who run online casinos found that they actually had an influx of new customers online wishing to gamble because many of the casinos in the Gulf Coast region were now nonexistent; they were completely wiped out.
In the future some of the casino rules are going to change and casinos along the Gulf Coast may not have to actually be all the water in some states. Instead they can build super strong structures that can withstand large category hurricanes. Hurricanes play an interesting dynamic in the casino business, on one hand the take casinos out of the market by destroying them; yet, this means there’s more business for other casinos in places like Atlantic City, Tunica, CT and Las Vegas.
Not to mention that huge growth in online gambling casinos on of the Internet. Internet online casinos have grown 3000 percent in the last three years and any market industry analysts from any market sector will tell you that this is phenomenal. Please consider this in 2006.
