»The Casino’s Future«
Casinos function everywhere according to the same pattern ”guest against casino“. That is the same for the traditional games as well as for the slots. The player wins, if he places his bet correctly, in the correct game, at the correct time. Otherwise the casino wins.
In contrast to this the renaissance of the poker game and its world wide success straight in online casinos proves the increasing popularity of games, whose pattern is called not ”guest against casino“, but ”guest against guest“.
These new kind of ”guest against guest“ game places - we call them »Casino-Club« - will represent an increasing competition to the traditional casino. The indication for this is the Poker euphoria and the Bingo Halls which are successful world wide.
Therefore the traditional casinos should not leave such »Casino-Clubs« to newcomers, but add them in their own casinos. Thereby the traditional casinos use the »Casino-Club« as a component of their established casino business.
When casinos focus more on the »Casino-Club« idea, it means no risk for the house, and can be regarded under this aspect as »The Casino’s Future«.
The advantage for the operator of a »Casino-Club« is there is no risk of monetary loss, because it works on commission.
The advantages for the players in the »Casino-Club« are that they legally play, and that they do not need to look for fellow players, because in the real, as well as in the virtual casino world, are always players.
But : for a succesful »Casino-Club« we need new games which are exciting as but not as complicated as Texas Hold’em and wich are as easy as but not as boring as Bingo.
I have created the conception of such games and the development of such places.
The »Casino-Club« is a kind of VIP Lounge for special guests, a defined zone within the Casino range, to which only members have entrance. When one becomes a member of »Casino-Club«, it is either by invitation from the casino management or by successful application.
The amenities of the »Casino-Club« are :
• Free entrance
• Free meals and beverages
• Smoking permission
• possible overnight accomodation in the Casino or a partner hotel.
The »Casino-Club« finances itself and obtains its profits from the commissions resulting from all games.
Additionally membership dues can be raised. 100 Dollar/Euro monthly or 1000 Dollar/Euro annually are conceivable.
Why does the future belong to the »Casino-Club« ?
The business in the casinos is declining world wide.
Apart from the global economic crisis there are also political and house made reasons :
• Missing new, inovative games
• Competition by online gaming
• Prohibition of smoking
• Abolition of dress codes.
