The Dangers of Online Gambling

 

 

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker

Dec 8, 2006

 

 

An overview on online gambling:

 

As with the problem of any other addiction the addiction of online gambling is also similar. One never gets to know unless he under goes some sort of major loss. Even though there are strict laws in the United States of America that prohibits online gambling but most of them are proving to be as deterrent as the prohibition of drinking in the 1920ís. Studies have found out that at least 80% of the total online gambling done on the United States of America is illegal. One reason that the law enforcement authorities can not much more is that most of the online casinos and betting exchanges have set up their head quarters in countries like Britain, Australia and Costa Rica where online gambling is legalized. The authorities can only take action if one such person owning an online casino travels to U.S. soil, operates through a U.S bank and or sets up office inside the territory of America. From an insight the concept of online gambling may appear to be too much easy as it does not involves the time consuming efforts of traveling to a casino. And also the internet is making the problem much worst with its accessibility and increased ability to hide this problem behavior.

 

Possible dangers of online gambling:

 

Our present era is marked by the internet and the recent trend that has been in the gambling world is occurring on the internet. The popularity of online gambling is also skyrocketing but the only thing that surrounds its legality is ambiguity. However almost any one of us will probably imagine Las Vegas casinos, riverboat casinos and many more but there are obviously certain risks associated with online gambling. Some of the basic and fundamental dangers of gambling through the internet may be listed as the potentiality of fraud over the internet, the children access to the gambling sites, an increase in the number of online gambling addicts and finally the need to protect and preserve the state revenues generated through legally enforced gambling operations. Considering these major factors most of the states within U.S.A have taken action to prohibit online gambling through different measures.
