Mainstream cross-overs in Online Casino Games

Grand Theft Auto V Casino
Will casinos cross into realm of Video Games
with Grand Theft Auto 5’s update?

Slot machines have been around since 1887 and over the years have evolved into the online and mobile slot games that we know and love today. As the evolution continues we see the lines of gaming as slots crossover into the mainstream featuring various movie, comic and video game themes.

In doing so, slots are attracting a whole new generation of gamers from movie fans who enjoy seeing their favourite blockbuster movie titles being licensed for use in online slots to hardcore video gamers looking to experience their favourite characters in a whole new format.

While online slots have incorporated gaming and movie themes for years, we have never seen the opposite in action where casinos have been incorporated into games. That is, until the infamous Grand Theft Auto rumours started just over two years ago.

Word around the global water cooler is that the creators of Grand Theft Auto, who are preparing to release the Grand Theft Auto 5 updates in the first half of 2016, will be including a virtual Casino in their Ill Gotten Gains update to the game. Speculation has been rife across the player forums thanks to a banner hanging over the current casino building within the game that reads “Opening Soon“.

Many fans are convinced that the Casino DLC update will offer players the opportunity to put their skills to the test by playing poker, blackjack, and other gambling mini-games within the game on both single and multiplayer versions of GTA V. While GTA developers remain mum on the subject, updates are said to be launched by June, so only time will tell if all the speculation is true and casinos truly do cross into gaming territory after all

In the meantime though, those who are fans of both can still enjoy the various mainstream crossover slots like Hitman and both Tomb Raider themed slots, while comic and movie fans can select from Game of Thrones and a host of Marvel themed slots.
