Online Gambling and Online Gaming Compared

Published Thursday, September 08, 2011 -

The gaming world is where the excitement builds to a certain level and then it either is a winning feeling or possibly a loosing one. Apparently this the same adrenalin rush and visual auditory  stimulation that online gamblers enjoy. The World of Warcraft for example has many players totally hooked on the game.  One expert was claiming 40 percent of World of Warcraft players are addicted to the 6 million plus game. Other experts claim there is no clinical proof of the condition.

Technology today has taken great leaps into gaming and that does spin into the online casino industry. Developments in TV have been creating better and bigger screens to enjoy and are allowing us to have great entertainment at home.  New marketing moves that make us want to come back are usually backed up by great games, good return, and hassle free transactions.
Some people may say that gaming at the massively multi-player online role-playing games is OK for awhile but then you want more.

Research was comparing the gambling habit and gaming habit. The University of Kent designed  a study to examine the positive and negative emotions involved. It was  explained by a University spokesperson, “It has long been acknowledged that two forms of passion can motivate a behaviour: harmonious passion, ie freely chosen for the pleasure derived from the activity, and obsessive passion, ie connected to extrinsic motivations such as wanting to maintain a certain status that is important to self-esteem.
The relationship is clear here between the online gamer and online gambler they have similar emotional predispositions in other words people are wired differently and sometimes a game will give you what you want and other times it won’t. The great thing about the internet is that it has so much variety to choose from. Choose your game and watch that your emotions don’t get the better of you.
