Two years have already passed after the global population experienced confinements and economic uncertainty due to the covid-19 pandemic, the effects generated by such events are beginning to be evaluated.
Although there are positive and negative consequences, it has turned out to be more beneficial than expected for India. Today, the country is considered one of the leaders in the online gaming market, thanks to its exponential growth over the past two years.
In fact, what was once considered taboo is now beginning to be accepted. Such is the case of the situation of the online casinos sector in India that has been fighting for its regularization for decades and that, only recently, began to take steps towards this goal. We refer to the Karnataka High Court partially repealed the law that penalized online games throughout its territory.
Now, having taken this small step towards the regularization of the gaming sector, it puts in perspective a future in which a large number of jobs will be opened for the replacement generation. We refer to Generation Z. Let’s see what professional opportunities this sector of the population has in the coming years.
How is the gaming industry influencing our new generation?
Generation Z, unlike Millennials, has been born into a world that plays between reality and the virtual world. In fact, many parents are against the number of hours their children spend playing in front of the screen. The truth is video games encourage specific skills, such as logical reasoning, problem-solving, creative puzzle-solving, and hand-eye coordination, to name just a few.
