|For a while now there’s been quite a bit of banter about online gambling. Vast numbers of official groups and governments around the globe have been trying to enforce restrictive regulations in attempt to ban online gambling altogether. But while politicians and other officials deliberate over social evils imposed on to the population via Internet gambling it is worth thinking about things as they stand. |
Many critics have suggested that on the cards, excuse the pun, lies a future with much more prosperity than anyone could have anticipated a year ago. Threats over possible outbreaks of war indicate that the online gaming industry is set to become the biggest gambling forum to date. The fact of the matter is, online gambling is least susceptible to the travel disruptions a possible war may precipitate. In that sense local casinos may also benefit from international action against Iraq. Destinations like Las Vegas will suffer as people become weary of traveling as in the 12 months that followed 911.
The question remains as to whether an online gambling ban is feasible? Given the current climate in the world and the foreseen popularity increase in online gaming following anticipated military action, I would have to presume that the answer is a simple no. Online gaming will undoubtedly expand even more rapidly in the shadows of war.
