The Online Gambling Phenomenon: It's Booming!

Aug 17, 2007
Like it or loathe it, gambling has been around for thousands of years in various forms and now we're experiencing a new phenomenon - the online gambling boom. It is expanding at the rate of a new born galaxy, with the industry turning over an estimated 13billion last year and that looks set to rise exponentially.

The main reason is that online gambling is instant and access to online casinos and betting shops is via your living room, or wherever you happen to have your computer. You don't have to get in your car and drive to the venue, indeed you don't even have to get dressed if you don't want to, but those are reasons why the internet as a whole took off and not just online gambling. To find out why online gambling is so popular we need to delve deeper.

The choice for online gambling is huge. Just about whatever takes your fancy is available; poker, betting on horses, betting on sports, lottery games, instant win games, bingo and the list goes on and on... You can take part in all or any of those activities in one location. To do the same in the non-cyber world is impossible without considerable expense as you travel between specialist venues.

There is often the option of playing in 'fun' mode where you can play with fantasy cash provided by the vendor until you have found the right game and right site for you. This allows users the chance to get a realistic feel for the many variations on new and classic games before they start staking their own hard earned cash for a chance of winning big money.

Sites have invested heavily in technology, not only to ensure secure payments but to add to the thrill of your chosen activity. For example roulette plays on your computer exactly as it would in the casino; the same sounds, the same colours, the same experience, but it's on the screen. Playing poker is as exciting as it would be if you were around the table staring into your opponent's eyes, and with bingo you can join thousands of fellow players online all chasing the big jackpot.

There is no doubt that it's the advances made in technology; expanding broadband, state-of-the-art gaming, and easy to set up secure accounts from debit and credit cards that will ensure that online gambling is here to stay.
