    The Restaurant of the Future Infographic

    Ever since the advent of Pac-Man and the arcade boom of the 80s, gaming in the public sphere has gone from niche to widespread consumption and appeal. Gaming has long been integrated into several business templates, from malls to theatres to restaurants. However, until the evolution of social media and the proliferation of cellular and mobile-based games of today, gaming in a social sense seemed to have a definitive revenue limit, as it had a specific, supposedly encapsulated audience. Now, that entire school of thought has been decimated as social gaming in all its forms has seized every facet of daily life, continually defying isolation to a certain demographic. Moms…

    Bingo – a game for the guys?

      Traditionally, the game of bingo has always been one that has been linked with women. With many enjoying a game or two online now at online brands such as Umbingo. Perhaps the reason for this was that it’s probably the ‘gentlest’ form of gambling game around – and therefore somehow considered more ‘acceptable’ for women to play than they might feel pulling a chair up to a poker table or going to shoot craps. But nowadays the stereotype that women shouldn’t enjoy other more ‘serious’ gambling games seems a little outmoded, and so, too, does the fact that bingo is viewed as a women’s game. Why shouldn’t men enjoy playing…

      The world of sport is more technological than ever before.

    The Relationship Between Music and Gaming: A Marriage Made in Heaven

    While the music used in console and social gaming was once basic and irrelevant, this trend has changed considerably in recent times. This is thanks primarily to a series of cultural and technological advancements, which have increased the breadth and popularity of gaming while also making it easier to create more complex compositions. With social and mobile gaming platforms now also incorporating high quality sound and music, the relationship between these two independent concepts is stronger than it has ever been. To understand how far gaming music has progressed, it is important to consider its origins. As anyone who played original platform games such as Pacman and Gauntlet can testify,…
