Looking back even a decade or two, it seems that no one could have predicted that online casino play would grow into the multi-billion-dollar powerhouse industry that it has become.
These days, the digitalization of slots that dominated casino play in the 1990s seem about as relevant as the giant car phones used by Michael Douglas in Wall Street!
Even the early online gambling of the early 2000s seems unrecognizable, in these days, where international acquisitions from gaming corporations allow players from every corner of the globe to place wagers on just about anything, anywhere, at any time, with almost no waiting time.
Given the choice, almost no gambler would return to those times of yore.
After all, the opportunities and odds available to todays players basically blow those of yesteryear out of the water. Especially when casino bonuses are added into the bargain!
And yet, it’s also true that some fascinating parts of gambling culture have been lost forever.
These include some of the professions that once thrived in the golden age of Las Vegas!
Here are some of the real jobs that people used to do in previous eras of gambling. Hard to imagine as they might seem today, tens of thousands (or more) people earned their livelihoods in these ways over the years!
