A Review of Online Casino Website

Whatever business sector you are in, if you have a website this needs to feature a strong design. One of the more successful is online casino, which is growing thanks to the popularity of social and mobile gaming and good web design is vital for any casino site that wants to take advantage – which is why many offer help on playing the games. Doing so lets customers learn in their own time at home, emphasising a major benefit of online gaming at sites like www.iPhoneCasino.ca. Good web design also needs to be aesthetically appealing though, as pointed out here, and this has led the more prominent online casino sites to ditch the garish graphics and colour schemes that the sector was once associated with, in favour of more sparse, classy design.

To understand the implications of this move, it's important to first take a look at eBay. The U.S. online retail platform was a major contributing factor to the $1 trillion of retail sales directly connected to e-commerce made in 2012. After all, by the end of 2012, eBay had a whopping 123.5 million active user accounts. With all the online clout eBay has, Alibaba was still able to squeeze it out of China when it made its debut back in 2003. Just last year, its some seven million merchants and 800 million shoppers transacted about $160 billion worth of goods. In fact, Taobao is arguably the largest e-commerce operator in the world by sales. On November 11 -- the Chinese shopping holiday "Single's Day" -- it raked in $9.3 billion in sales. This is an impressive figure made only more jaw-dropping by the fact that it's double the West's 2013 Black Friday and...
