Gambling Online - Is Gambling Online Illegal?

Copyright (c) 2009-2019

The legality of Gambling Online has always been a debatable topic. It is not an easy question to answer. The reason is because the whole situation of legality depends on where you are when you play. The matter of gambling online has always been a gray area as it is an unconventional phenomenon.

The concept of gambling online started somewhere around the mid 1990s. This was when the online casinos were launched in Antigua for the first time. This introduction was glorious because a large number of people got interested and turned on by the idea of making a lot of money so conveniently and without ever leaving home. People were impressed by the idea of earning money by just spinning some reels or playing a few hands from the convenience of their home.

From the time of its' introduction in the mid 1990s, the concept of gambling online has grown at a fast pace and a lot of online companies have been able to earn lucrative sum due to their listing in public stock trading worldwide. Internationally, it took some time for lawmakers from different nations to realize that a new concept has hit the market and that this would require a new set of regulations. It is surprising but true that certain territories with state-sanctioned gambling were also unaware of something that had so strongly caught the fancy of general public.

When it comes to solving the complicated issue of whether or not gambling on the internet is legal, different nations and lawmakers have different views. Some officials believe that the whole thing is against the law. They think that one cannot wager over the World Wide Web or the telephone. On the other hand, some feel that the illegal part about online gambling is its' operation and that too if it is set up in the United States. This is the reason websites prefer operating from overseas locations such as Australia, Caribbean and Latin America.

There are also people who think that it is not worth debating on the topic as the government has other major issues to act upon.

According to Sue Schneider, publisher of a well known interactive gaming news, there is nothing specifically written or prophesied in the law books about gambling online being illegal. This is the reason most online gambling companies do not shy away from openly advertising on different stations across the radio dial. It is also true that no one will be charged with a crime for betting with any of the services available across the globe.

The business of gambling online is booming. The Land of Antigua is known to possess most online gambling sites. According to estimations, the industry has been declared to hold a worth of $200 million each year. The revenues tend to top $1 billion on an annual basis.

Antigua is certainly a winner but it is also true that about seventy-five governments across the globe license Gambling Online. Currently more than about 1,800 online gambling websites exist.

This leaves lawmakers in the United States with three options namely: regulate, ban or continue to ignore. In case, they choose to regulate, name brand gambling betting interests in Las Vegas will be the first to leap in and obtain legitimacy to online gambling. In case the law opts to ban, the huge gambling online network and people betting would face huge losses. Hence, it is not easy to make out whether online gambling is actually legal or not.

The only thing people across the globe are sure of today is that gambling online is very lucrative. All one requires to do is to sit comfortably at home, spend some time and start making money. There are a lot of people world wide from different walks of life and age groups who have earned great profits through gambling online.

One also requires considering the risk factor of online gambling and its bad affects due to addiction, especially among teenagers.

Addiction to gambling can have adverse health, financial and mental effects on an individual.

It is advised that if you have an addictive personality, you should avoid online gambling altogether, as your future financial stability does require a measure of self-control when facing the urge to gamble on just one more roll of the dice or slot machine.

Simply put, gambling online is not a bad thing, unless you simply find it too hard to walk away when you are losing.
