Casinos, lotteries, racetracks and even bingo halls are built around forms of gambling that were invented in the 1800s, or earlier. But that is about to change.
Modern technology and the players who grew up with it demand more. Fantasy sports, skill games, eSports and virtual reality are only the beginning. Regulators, operators and suppliers will have to adapt or become obsolete.
