Online Gambling Now Family Entertainment

Published Sunday, May 03, 2009 -

To win over the odds, using only your intelligence and basic instincts, to live on intuition, it's a process that gets the blood flowing and a sense of wonder when you finally beat that downward trend. To start this experience you can open an online-betting account, and start betting immediately on just about anything. If you start winning, you can withdraw your winnings instantly to your credit card by pressing a button.

Things have come a long way since the days when you actually had to go to a bit of trouble to get to some side-street bookie's office, and hand over real money to make your bet. There was nothing that might encourage you to linger or to have a pleasant experience. This was generally the domain of men, the days are gone when it took a fair amount of guts to go downtown and find a card game in a smoked filled, cigar chewing, whiskey drinking sort of place. Now the online gaming experience can take the form of a well lit living room with your cup of tea next to you and a firm grip on the mouse.

The urge to gamble is being facilitated at every turn by the interplay between sports, television, and online betting, a devastatingly powerful combination. Many sports are now sponsored by betting corporations, and are televised almost entirely for betting purposes.

Mother can now play a friendly game of bingo, Dad can bet on his favourite sports team and the kids can learn how to be a poker champions before puberty wears off. It sounds like family entertainment to most of us. A sage with some obvious wisdom once said, 'The subject of gambling is all-encompassing. It combines man's natural play instinct with his desire to know about his fate and his future.'
