Gambling has been around for ages. Even before the creation of the internet, gambling has been one of the most popular past times of our ancestors.
Before online gambling was introduced in 1996, people usually went to places such as Las Vegas to play casino. Today, anyone who has internet connection can play online anytime, anywhere.
Online gambling started in Antigua and Barbuda where it was first legalized. From the time it was introduced in the World Wide Web, it became an instant hit. People, especially those coming from America, liked the idea of gambling in the comforts of their own home. Today, it is one of the multi-billion industries.
However, online gambling was opposed by a lot of people and nations. A lot has been done to ensure that it will not be legalized in some countries. Government officials are concerned about online gambling addiction and the difficulty that comes with taxation.
Despite oppositions, online gambling continues to flourish. In fact, more and more online casinos are being introduced every year. Because of this, more and more players also find themselves addicted to this.
