The Charge Forward for More Gambling – Market Share Competition Ignites Globally

It seems these days that people have a lower attention span, they want to be entertained at all times, and they’re always looking for that entertainment high. That emotional burst of energy, and often they find it doing things that are probably not in their best interest. One of them happens to be gambling, and it is quite a concern worldwide. Gambling is addicting, but more so it seems to be an innate characteristic of the species. Okay so, let’s talk about this for a second shall we?

It seems unfortunate that we know that gambling can be a problem for many people, although many states now have state run lotteries. Often they make gambling illegal, and yet engage in the same activity themselves. And then there are the bingo nights and the nonprofit groups, but that’s allowed because it’s going towards a good cause. But I ask at what cost, no bingo is not biggie rather, I am talking about the other stuff. And then there are the Indian reservations, they are a sovereign nation within our nation, and they are allowed different rules, so they duly set up gambling casinos to make lots of money off the rest of us.

If you think this is just a problem in the United States you’re wrong, the competition for gambling is ever-increasing. Yes, it’s also happening on home, but it’s also happening globally. Let me explain. In our local paper here there was an interesting article; “The Recession: Indian Gaming – Desert Tribes on Losing Streak – Revenues Still Falling, But Some Positive Signs Emerge,” by Keith Matheny of the Desert Sun on March 7, 2012.

In the Asia there was an article entitled; “Vietnam eyes casino proposals, policies,” published in AsiaOne a Singapore Online News source, March 8, 2012 which talked about how Vietnam is going to allow gambling to bring in tax revenue and tourism, and they will base it on the Singapore model, because they are concerned that new wealthy Vietnamese business people are traveling to Singapore to gamble.

In Tokyo Today there was an article on how the Japanese government is considering doing the same thing in their nation, as revenue is leaving Japan to Macau, Las Vegas, and Singapore, and they want this money kept in-country. Is this really the answer? Isn’t it the miss management of a government’s budget that got them into the problem in the first place, and perhaps the challenges with demographic issues meaning decreased revenue is coming into the country. Either way all of these governments have now resorted to gambling for the answer, allowing companies to manipulate the human psyche?

Apparently, everyone thinks this is okay merely because it solves a problem? Now then, I am a free enterprise type, I believe people should be allowed to engage in any activity they feel like, as long as it doesn’t hurt others, and we should have fewer regulations not more.

However what we’re finding is that governments wish to regulate gambling so they can tax it, and solve the problems they have themselves created through poor fiscal management over the years. If you see don’t problem with all this, then you aren’t looking, and you aren’t thinking. Therefore, I ask that you please consider all this and think on it.

Public Relations for State Gambling Boards

Many citizens are quite angry at the state gambling boards in those states that allow gambling. They say that casinos are able to get away with murder and build giant projects and break all the rules of the city’s codes. These same people say that many times environmental impact reports are looked over and cast aside because the casino has so much clout, lobbying dollars and is so ingrained in politics that they cannot be stopped.

It is because of the mistrust of government and the gambling boards as well as the huge amounts of money that gambling casinos generate that people generally mistrust the entire system. To alleviate some of this mistrust from the citizenry and some of the problems, which go along with very outspoken minority groups, it makes sense to have a very strong public relations program for the gambling boards at the state level.

These gambling boards need to have open communication lines with all major media outlets so they can explain exactly what is going on and educate the consumer, future gambler and the general public as to why they have made the decisions that they have. It is not easy to put in huge giant casinos that costs over $1 billion and citizens should understand that any project that size will have a number of mitigation issues simply to get the project done. Perhaps you will consider all this in 2006.

Casinos in Georgia

Georgia casinos are not like other casinos by any degree: on the water extravagance, jazz clubs, and piano bars await any newcomer interested in playing at a Georgia casino at sea. Visitors thoroughly enjoy the scenery that goes along with the Georgia casinos, because each of the cruises is fascinating. Instead of state issued rights, the Georgia community invested in more profitable trips on the ocean waves. Many gamblers have taken numerous visits on the Texas Star, formerly known as the Millionaire’s Casino, and the Emerald Princess dinner & cruise ships have a great reputation, as well. Georgia gambling deserves a distinguished image and their casino cruises surpass the rest in more ways than one. For instance, the casino cruises last for three to four days or more when travelers are interested in trying their luck all week. Where else can a traveler experience so much fun in so little time?

Since they are cruise ships, Georgia casinos are the highlights of tourists’ vacations. Reservations must be in place before the ship leaves dock. Many gamblers or travelers place their reservations two to three months ahead of the ships departure. Accommodations come in numerous choices such as those with wheel chair accessibility and ocean view condominiums, all of which feature luxuries that are not available through traditional land-based casinos. Now, travelers have the opportunity to party 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on these ships, because the casinos never close unless for performances or shows by onboard celebrities. To get a head start, it is best to purchase tickets online after viewing the schedules and availabilities for holiday events. One of these two cruise ships even allows planners of large events to use the entire ship for their celebrations.

Gamblers utilize their skills on the machines and tables, where many of these are not the same as in traditional casinos. Tourists love to play Texas Hold ’em because of the enthusiasm of the casino personnel. The games in these Georgia casinos are some of the most interesting that any traveler could find in gambling casinos anywhere. Event planners who are interested in renting party space or several tables at a time should consult with the company directly for more information. Information on cruises, policies, and procedures can be found on the company’s website. Other information involving booking or reserving party space must be addressed approximately eight months ahead of the desired departure.
