| Online Casino Gambling - Why gamble online
Online casino gambling has become a mainstream
activity which people from all parts of society and all
parts of the world engage in for fun, entertainment and
to win money. And why shouldn't they? Online casinos
offer a much higher payback percentage than most other
gambling alternatives and you can play in the comfort of
your own home and you have the freedom to play whenever
you want to.
Online casino gambling should be approached in a
responsible way. It should first and foremost be a form
of entertainment like a night out on the town or going
to see a movie. It should not be viewed upon as a way to
make easy money or a way to escape from the worries of
everyday life. Gambling should provide enjoyment, not be
a means to an end. And most important of all: You should
never gamble with more money than you can afford to

Just as the gambling industry is growing worldwide, more

gambling you can just type a word into a search engine
and in an instant you'll be confronted with a list of
sites to play, at the game you find most interesting.
Not to mention the fact that any one particular online
gaming establishment can offer you up to 30 different
games to play. You won’t find this at a real land-based
casino. Virtual casinos really have it over the brick
and mortar variety.
And consider this. If you go to a land-based casino you

How legislation on online casino gambling is likely to
develop in the future is very difficult to predict.
There are signs of more restrictive legislation in some
countries. Most notably the United States where the
current Republican Administration is strongly against
online gambling and where Republican congressmen have
put forward several anti-gambling proposals in the last
decade. The most important of these is the Unlawful
Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) which was
signed into law on October 13th 2006 making it illegal
for financial institutions and electronic payment
services to broker transactions to and from online
