GameBoy is 25 Years Old

The GameBoy is now twenty five years old. The handheld console changed how we play video games and helped shape an entire generation. Without the GameBoy there would of been hundreds of children who wouldn’t of become immersed into the world of video games. These very same children would end up creating the video games that we now play, some of the best video games such as the last of us were created by diehard fans of the GameBoy.


When the GameBoy was first released back in 1989 people didn’t believe that a handheld console could become popular. Pokemon, Zelda and many other titles allowed for this handheld console to become popular around the entire globe. Eventually Nintendo, the creators of the GameBoy would released the GameBoy Color two years later. The GameBoy Color sold 501 Million Units throughout its lifetime. After the GameBoy Color was released it wasn’t until 2001 that another GameBoy would be released, the GameBoy Advanced boasted a new designed and better internals which allowed for exciting games and new gaming experiences.

Land Gambling Being Addressed Before Online Gambling In Illinois

An Illinois Senator was asked to be interviewed on a television station earlier on this month, during his interview the senator noted that land based gambling will be addressed before online gambling. What this means is that Land Gambling in Illinois will gain an expansion while online gambling will continue to remain illegal in the borders of Illinois.

State of Illinois

John Cullerton, the Senator who was being interviewed stated the following, “Online Gambling can bring in a large amount of tax revenues in our state. Unfortunately the owners of the various land based casinos in Illinois also brings in a mass amount of tax revenue each month for our state. We don’t want to upset our land based gambling industry by starting up an online gambling industry. In order to resolve the issue we will add expansions to our land based gambling industry, making it that much easier for our citizens to enjoy their gambling experiences.”

Senator Cullerton continued saying, “Online Gambling isn’t illegal in Illinois forever, eventually we will offer an online gambling industry. We just need to make sure that before we do so, our land based gambling industry is steady and ready for the competition.”

Lad based gambling in Illinois has been expanding in the state during the last two years, horse racing tracks and land based casinos have begun to pop up more throughout the state. Online gambling is still teased and even though it’s always put on the back burner, one day we will have legal online gambling in Illinois.
