Revolution for the Online Casino World

This week saw a bit of a surprise in the world of online gambling – suddenly, even the big online casinos are talking about Mac online casino games again. Online casino companies are pointing out that they have Flash games which can be used by Mac users because there is no download required, they are laying claim to coming up with a certain form of online blackjack for Mac users first, etc. etc. etc. Is it really fair to online casino gamblers that Mac online games can be out of the news for so long and then they get bombarded by news about it all?

It should be expected, actually. Mac online casinos have always been around at the fringe of the online casino world, but the fact that even big online casino companies are sitting up and taking notice and making their opinions heard is a pretty big deal. It shows that there could be an online gambling revolution on the horizon, with Mac users and Mac online casino sites rising up and taking their place alongside their PC counterparts. Nothing is a guarantee, of course, but it is looking more and more like the odds are that Mac online casino popularity and exposure is on the rise – and it will be to the industry’s benefit.

The more online gamblers who have access to online casino games, the better. Even Linux users are gaining opportunities to gamble at online casinos. The more the merrier, as the saying goes, and online casinos should not fear the idea that more Mac users will be visiting their sites first for Flash games and maybe even one day demanding that the major online casinos launch full versions of their online casino programs for Mac users. Online casino companies do want to make money, right?
