situated in the South of the United. Georgia
is one of its fastest-growing states not only
population wise but also gambling in Georgia
is increasing rapidly.
With a population approaching the ten million
mark, Georgia is also known to many as the Empire
State of the South.
Bordered by Florida., South Carolina, Alabama,
Tennessee and North Carolina, has also a long
coastline with the Atlantic Ocean. In
the northern part of Georgia the Blue Ridge
Mountains dominate the sky line.
Georgia with a population numbering slightly
less than five million covers an area
of 59,441 square miles (153,951 km²),
making it the 24th largest state in America.
The climate of Georgia is both humid and subtropical,
especially during the long summer months making
online gambling in Georgia an even more attractive
An expanding and buoyant economy typifies Georgia’s
economy of the early 21st century, reaching
close to an annual state product of $400 billion.
Georgia’s per capita income per person
was more than $40,000 in 2006, making the average
Georgian the tenth highest earner in the United
States ideal for the gambling industry.
Principal income in the state comes from a close
combination of agriculture and industry, as
well as national and international service industries.
Many leading international conglomerates have
situated their head offices in the state, especially
around the vibrant state capital, Atlanta.
Opportunities for gambling in Georgia have taken
a turn for the better in recent years, especially
as tourism has improved in the sate. Despite
that fact, and at least for the time being,
the state only boasts two Casinos, and these
are both cruise ships that sail out and return
Not for the inherently sea sick, these cruise
ships, while offering gambling facilities at
a fairly high level, although dye to their size,
they can only offer just more than one hundred
slots and eleven table games.
One of the cruise ships, Emerald Princess Dinner
& Casino Cruise, sails out of the city of
Brunswick and the other, the Millionaire's Casino
Boat is based in the city of Savanna
For the casual tourist these cruise gambling
casinos may make for a fun day out, but for
the player who would like a bit more serious
action, there are basically only two major alternatives.
Take a car, boat or plane to one of the neighboring
states that do offer serious gambling facilities,
Florida being an example that swings immediately
to mind. The other alternative is to stay at
home and gamble online.
A pass time that many Americans are finding
more and more appealing. All the best of the
table games are there to be downloaded and played,
and while it is not quite the real thing, it
is not that far away.
Software for online gambling casinos is the
best that there is, and it can be downloaded
free of charge. And not only that, if you are
a beginner or simply want to practice, you can
play for nothing.
For those who appreciate head to head content,
and don’t want to play against the Casino,
there is the ever popular Texas Hold’em
poker game and for the purist there is even
backgammon and online casino Blackjack.
Again these games can be played for free, anytime
of the day or night, any day of the week. For
Georgians starved of gambling action this must
be a first class alternative.
