Gambling and online poker has been seen as such a bad thing to do for many years now. It it not permitted in so many countries throughout the world but what is the reason? What are the main reasons why people are so against the game, lets take a closer look.
As an individual I dont really gamble myself, as I feel you need to work for your money, but there is a lot of people that do enjoy the game and making it illegal is a definate no go. There are so many positives that can come out of gambling.
Firstly and the most crucial aspect is actually is gambling is another sector, people rely on this sector to pay their wages and if it went hundreds of people would become unemployed and homeless. Just look at what occured in Russia recently as an example, The government has ordered the closure of all casinos and gambling halls on the Wednesday, consigning gambling to four special zones in distant regions in Russia, some of them a few thousand miles and half-a-dozen time zones away from Moscow. This has really hurt the economy and made thousands of people jobless.
Secondly almost every industry uses gambling to make money, but they do it in a more sneaky way. I mean what do you think you are doing when you ring in to enter into a quiz on a Saturday night? This is probably one of the craziest forms of gambling, I mean the quiz probably asks the easiest question ever, that everyone knows the answer too. Such as "What colour is the ocean? Then a huge volume of people ring the premium line and pay around £1.50 for the call, when you know that it is very unlikely you will win the main prize.
