Online Gambling Running Out of Steam
When I moved to Reno 6 years ago from Seattle (dont ask), gambling seemed like a fun and novel way to blow some extra cash.
In real life I think that part of the appeal of gambling is that it can't be done everywhere.
After a couple weeks, the novelty wore off. I don't think this is exactly rocket surgery. You could probably survey residents in any given town where gambling is legal and find that most of them don't really gamble very often. Those that do, in my experience are usually suffering from some sort of gambling addiction.
When you make everyone's hometown a 'virtual gambling town' you shouldnt be surprised to see the same sort thing, addicts stay and everyone else gets over it.
