|Mobile Gaming Taking Off
and Other Casino News
Posted: December 22, 2010
As our phones expand it
slowly seems to be getting rid of every other piece of technology we've grown accustomed
According to reports one of the pieces of tech in jeopardy
is handheld games like the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS.
"The proliferation of highly multifunctional
smartphones and messaging phones is a very real threat to the dominance by the DS and PSP
of the handheld gaming market," the report says. "Devices which satisfy a
variety of entertainment and utility are fast outstripping single-function devices as
Gaming on the iPhone 4 and Droid have been skyrocketing, as
players are having more fun with Angry Birds than God of War. But its not only regular
video games, these devices are being used to gamble as well. Sites like the Bodog Casino
offer mobile gaming, letting players enjoy blackjack, roulette and slots from their
phones. Something the PSP or DS can't even do.
Bellagio Casino Heist
The Bellagio casino was robbed of thousands of dollars in
chips by a motorcycle bandit.
The casino robber was on a black motorcycle and well
disguised by a full face helmet. The chips stolen are only good for that specific casino
and little in the way of an identification of the bike he was riding is available. We're
not sure how he's going to cash these chips in, but we gotta respect his plan, it worked.
Much quicker than George Clooney's over-the-top idea to rob the Bellagio.
Rain, Snow in Las Vegas
Apparently if you're looking to dodge the bad weather over
the holidays you can't even go to Las Vegas.
The forecast calls for more rain today through Wednesday
night for Las Vegas, according to the National Weather Service.
Heavy snow will fall through this afternoon in the higher
elevations of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, forecasters said.
Could there be snow coming down on The Strip? If it does we
suggest you stick to gaming indoors, no need to ruin a hot streak on the slot machines
with winter weather.
