Casino and Tourism share a very strong and common bond with each other

It’s true that casinos and tourism have a lot in common. They are both industries which strive to
offer a high quality product for an exigent market while also keeping up with the times and
investing in innovative new additions that will keep them relevant for years to come.

For the casino industry this new technology meant online casinos, which offered players across
the globe the chance to play their favorite games from the comfort of their own home. Even with
this new world of gambling that online casinos brought on, tourism still shares a common bond
with casinos.

For one thing, Las Vegas, possibly the most famous gambling themed city/resort in the world has
never been busier regardless of the popularity of online casinos. In fact, the online casino market
has opened the world of safe and professional gambling to players who would have never tried it
otherwise. Thus, it has also created millions of potential new visitors for the world’s most
prestigious gambling cities and resorts.

When it comes adding new innovative products that will attract a new generation of users the
tourism industry has also been creative, combining the popular world of casinos with cruise
ships, creating a unique, luxurious and highly popular product.

While the tourism industry can’t offer interesting slot games such as Cosmic Fortune
for example they can offer a fantastic vacation where among numerous other entertaining ways to
spend your free time you will be able to gamble.

The best part of the online casino industry is its mobile platform, which allows players from all
across the globe to play the amazing games on offer, even games like Tornado Farm Escape
with its stunning graphics and sophisticated design.

This way, players who are enjoying their casino themed vacation can easily access any slot game
or any other type of game they can’t find in a brick-and-mortar casino from their mobile devices
and enjoy the best of both worlds.

So what’s the color of chameleon dress?

Today we called several employees of our company to determine the color of the dress, and as it was thought, the company split into two parts:

  • 4 employees saw white and gold, or in a pinch white with blue/gold with brown-yellowish…
  • 3 employees saw blue and black!

I was warned about the possible aggression from the “white and gold” camp (and that’s – I don’t want any kind of murder to be done in the company). But unexpectedly “white and gold” were very quiet, and since predicted events do not come true (we have no quarrel), we just decided that the main cause is in different perception of each person. We see all things in different way.

By the way, there are twins in our company, and they (both – female) see colors differently although they have identical-looking eyes.

At home, I have tested image through Photoshop and found that both groups were equally half right. That’s what I got:

White color of chameleon dress is originally white.

White color of chameleon dress is originally white.
But anyone who see white as blue is also right.

 

Платье хамелеон - реальные цвета

As for golden, yellow and reddish-brown – it is close to yellow-brown-red spectrum!
Thus, other camp is right as well.

My explanation:
Press in Photoshop on the “eyedropper” tool – this makes the main color, which is to be clicked on further. Then in the first image click on the white, but it color is up to you: as for me it looks white, but other people think that it’s blue – and they are right, because Photoshop recognizes it as “blue range of colors”… Also Photoshop recognizes golden color as red-brown-yellow, but as for me it’s golden and brown – and I’m almost true.
Well, why do we see chameleon differently and why this dress has appeared in March 2015 and divided people into equal parts so “clearly”? Obviously it’s a mystery, but maybe you have some suggestions? Leave it in commentaries.
Kind regards,
Rashid
