Gambling is a sort of activity that requires predicting an outcome, with something precious on stake. It can be monetary or a commodity of equal value.Online casino gambling, however, is a not-so-conventional form of regular gambling. It requires internet access to play and to bet. It involves everything from, predicting card outcomes to betting on horses, numbers on dices, etc. The variant with cards allows you to choose from a bunch of games like blackjack, casino, etc.Horse race betting is particularly popular with those fancying extravagant activities or those who want to earn quick cash or the ones who have extra bills and don’t know what to do with them.Also, different names of the same, as online betting, internet gambling, etc., might be prevalent in different regions.
How do you play it?
Well, you can take either of the two paths. You can go for downloading the software to your cell phones. If you find the screen too small, then download the desktop version of the same.The alternative to this, there are several websites that host online casino, that too all day and almost every day.
Having talked about the platform, you can opt to play with virtual money like coins and stuff, or you can actually transfer money to their account.
Points where it lacks
I have not seen anyone siding with online gambling and never have i ever wondered why that is. Although, these websites and software have turnovers in millions of dollars, bring employment, but the reasons why you should avoid it are right in your face.
- Addiction: after playing it for a while, one gets addicted. What happens next is, he starts losing all his time and money in the game, and we all know nothing good ever comes out of that.
- Debts: when playing, you are supposed to transfer money, which gets deducted from the credit card, and hence one loses track of how much money he has spent. So, what initially was a 10-dollar debt, goes on becoming 1000, which can take him weeks, maybe months to pay off.
A note to end
So, this piece covers almost everything about online gambling. The down-side i must say is quite high, to the up-side that it earns a lot of money.
I won’t be saying whether it should be legalized or not, just this, people should be extremely careful with their time and money. They’re both invaluable.
