From daily fantasy betting, social gaming, entity wagering, skill based games, and e-sports, the future is here. Regulators, attorneys, casino resort operators, and equipment manufacturers, will face significant opportunities and challenges in the near future, with cloud and open source gaming.

Immersive gaming with 3D processors, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence, will become embedded in casino machines and games. Robots, micro and nano technology, will become part of many aspects of the industry. Only time will tell what this exponential rate of growth in technology will have for the gaming industry and its customers. Again, the future is here, and those that adapt the quickest will survive.
