It was decided to talk about the ever-growing attractiveness of gambling as an alternative to face-to-face games, such as casinos or table games. “Live dealer” or “entry fees” can be considered as a substitute for gambling, using any of the options over the Internet. We want to get rid of all preconceptions and prejudices about this practice so that they can be treated neutrally.
Online gambling has brought in a billion dollars over the past decade (using 2017 data), and 40% of taxes in the US were received through its interface. Almost 80% of online casinos were opened without spending any money or even without the need to create an online account using a credit card or bank transfer.
To win casino games, you work in customer service without a credit card – this is a virtual casino. When customers come in and register, it becomes clear that the goal is not to continue the levels of the gaming house, earn the status of frequent players or try your luck.
Online gambling is a multibillion—dollar industry that brings in billions of dollars every month. Gambling is very popular in North America and is regularly covered on television networks, countless newspapers and online news portals. This can be considered the main topic for this edition for beginners – the pros and cons of legal (in some areas), unregulated gambling, investment risks and costs, increased costs for such activities.
Neither the casino industry nor the politicians like the idea that you play in a casino. Therefore, they all try to keep the limits on cards as low as possible so that you are forced to put up without trying. But it goes even further — they also want players to withdraw money immediately after winning, so that you can’t earn points or buy games in various ways, such as credit cards, FIDO, prepaid cards, etc.
Online gambling is licensed, but not regulated. It exists in a grey area and should therefore be avoided as it harms society by bringing an unregulated industry into our modern income streams. The decision to license online gambling for American offshore operators (who are largely just looking for converts) is doubtful, given the possibility of financial sanctions imposed by the Internal Revenue Service and the fine paid for non-compliance with the deadline.
Online gambling (in terms of content) is gradually becoming a growing and profitable industry in the US, which is the main source of income for gaming brokers and is growing faster than demographic gambling tourism (in terms of entertainment). This means that gambling websites, print magazines and billboards are becoming more popular than the fact that the focus is on their multimedia advertising.
In 2017, most US states passed laws explicitly prohibiting online gambling. The main driving forces behind this are legalization, protection of minors and money laundering. However, while some of these factors have also motivated policies aimed at detrimental effects, such as increasing gambling addiction and facilitating neoliberalization efforts in other risky financial situations, there is a large part that has nothing to do with any real problems.
