Over the last four decades, many changes
have taken place in the world of gambling.
When I grew up, Nevada was the place to go to gamble, followed by Atlantic City. Throngs of visitors would pay a visit to those select casinos to place a wager, see famous performers, eat delicious and inexpensive food, and hope that they might get lucky with the pull of a slot handle or roll of the dice. In the years to follow, other states recognized the revenue generating benefits of gambling and today most states have made it legal.
