Online gambling games, and in fact games of all types are starting to relate more and more to popular culture. While online games have existed essentially since the beginning of the Internet, the reality is that online games today are just now starting to take on the popular culture in a big way.
Big cultural hits such as “The Walking Dead” have already been put onto online games in a big way. These type of shows would probably not come as much surprise to see put into a game to most people. They are already so familiar with seeing the branding of these shows on merchandise of all kinds. To have that extend to the online games that they play is just an extension of everything else that the brand is on. At the same time, online games are starting to feature things like “The Ellen Show” and the like.
The online gambling industry is reported to have been $45 billion roughly in 2016 and is thought to be headed towards $56 billion by 2018. There are more and more people who are accepting the idea that they can in fact gamble on the Internet. It is also just becoming more socially accepted as well.
With more players entering the gambling market, the providers of those games would like to do what they can to provide people with the parts of pop culture that they like to see in their everyday life. They are practically demanding it.
There is a certain comfort with playing a gambling game when that game has things that are familiar to the player. This could mean characters from “Family Guy” or even “Wheel of Fortune”. Those two examples would appeal to very different types of players, but that is what the industry has to do. They consider the desires of players of all different age groups in order to provide for them. With that in mind, expect to see a whole new variety of games to come around.
