Gambling & gaming: same difference

OK, for those of you still wondering what the difference is exactly between ‘gaming’ and ‘gambling,’ you might want get it straight soon coz the good news is, the line that now divides them – however blurred – is fast disappearing. And all thanks to Playtech, definitely one of my favorite online casino game developers

Basically, ‘gambling’ refers to games in which real money is wagered, whereas ‘gaming’ refers more to online and interactive video games like World of Warcraft, which are not played for cash, until now, that is. The term ‘gaming’ used to refer to all legal forms of ‘gambling,’ but that connotation changed as gambling became increasingly legal.

Playtech just announced the release of some brand spanking new “gambling” games which are not only exciting, but revolutionary. Among these industry firsts is ‘The Alien Hunter,’ a very hot 5-reel, 25-line video slot machine game sporting a Sci-Fi vibe in which gamers are challenged to test their sharp-shooting skills by killing off aliens… and for cash prizes! Wow, talk about bounty hunting. If you ask me, I think there’s a whole new profession in all this.
