Long before the introduction of land based casinos in the major cities in the world, gambling had become a popular pastime for many people; and in the modern time it continues to be a major force that drives people to spend their money for the outright thrill of testing their luck and winning. Today, gambling is one flexible field with so many facets, with lots of thrills, with lots of fun to offer to its followers all over the globe. Now people can bet on any game of chance from sports betting or casino games. These activities are for everyone interested and curious to take part in; and you can enjoy them at so many venues all over the world, so it is not hard to find a venue in your locality or near. In fact, virtually everyone can now participate in such games because a lot of gambling promoters have brought themselves too open to everyone. When gambling was brought online, it just became a phenomenon, being completely accessible to anyone online. This revolution made it possible for this activity to be enjoyed anywhere, at different venues for complete fun.The usual place where gambling is held is at land based casinos, and they are still popular even up to this modern time when online versions are rising to popularity. With the online gambling sites having more to offer than the conventional brick and mortar venues, the latter are simply bracing themselves to survive the competition. But online sites do not intend to compete with their well established land based elders. Instead, they simply serve as an alternative should people want to enjoy games of chance and yet can’t hope to go out of their houses. Nevertheless, therein lies the sheer advantage of online sites over the land based ones, as online gambling is completely suitable for people who are starting to be gaming enthusiasts and wish to hone their skills and techniques in playing. Online gambling venues allow people to subscribe for free at first, with no need to drop in their money. This is quite good for those who are not yet adept but are eager to learn the basics and ins and outs of their favorite casino games. Nonetheless, seasoned pros can just come to their chosen brick and mortar casino for real fun and real feel and real deal.Amazing prizes and great rewardsGambling is not the same as it used to be. In fact, you can see how much video poker, live roulette, TV slots, and blackjack have changed as they have gone onto the internet. Long-established casino games are coming out now with more variations and exciting additional benefits which, together with the pot money, make the online version even more profitable for newbies in gambling.Seasoned players may want to check out what’s online and they would be happy to know that the online version offers rich rewards and big prizes.But there is another option for gambling and this one is formatted to be played on mobile phones-great for people on the go. While online playing is most suitable for those who live hundreds of miles from the nearest casino house, mobile phone betting is apt for busy professionals.Gambling and betting have been formatted to become facile for all people and are now tailored for people of all walks of life.
As a writer and former gambler, I wish that I could say that there is truly a magic solution to the financial debts resulting from a gambling addiction. Unfortunately, there is no magic solution whatsoever.I can say, however, that if you suffer from a compulsive gambling problem, that the best thing you could do right now is to stop gambling. In addition, I would like to add that you must stop gambling and abstain from gambling from now on in order to resolve your gambling debt problem.If you continue to gamble compulsively, whether it be online gambling, poker, slots, pokies, or fruit machines, your gambling debts will continue to increase exponentially.
You will soon be in a situation that has reached the point of no return.When an individual with a gambling problem reaches this level, the person can lose a home, automobile, and have to declare personal bankruptcy.Remember that gambling addiction is not a money or financial problem, but a serious emotional problem. You must begin to resolve these emotional issues through the help of a counselor or a support group before tackling your gambling debt problems.When you stop the gambling, and get help for your gambling addiction, your debts will start to resolve themselves after developing a debt reduction plan with your counselor or a debt reduction specialist.You do not have to suffer with a gambling problem and continue to have mounting, irreparable debt. Stop suffering, and get help for your gambling addiction now.
The other day, I was contacted by an eBook author with a new gambling eBook on Amazon, made for Kindle Users, he asked if I’d like to review it. Alan Samonte’s newest book on gambling; “The Gambling System That Works,” does sound interesting, and I think he’s touching on a real uptrend here. It is as if just recently we’ve seen a bit of growth in the number of gamblers out there in recent months.Interestingly enough, I’ve done a bit of writing on the topic of gambling. You see, after traveling across the US, I have visited all the major gambling areas, and some small ones out of the way too, mostly on Indian Reservations or near state lines, rivers, or other areas in the gray area of law, allowing for such.Indeed, I’ve seen mesmerized senior citizens at slot machines, brought in by the busload, Asian tourists, and high-rollers. I’ve also visited the outskirts of Las Vegas where the “Shanty Towns” are similar to the depictions in the movie “Pay it Forward” and I’ve met gambling addicts, as well as those who love to have some fun in moderation, so my experiences and observations indeed run the gambit. Still, it seems that things are on the rise in the gambling world, why I can only guess.My conclusion is that the economy and prospects for the future are causing some of this. Of course, the rest is just good casino marketing, branding, and all the special offers, players clubs, and incentives. For those who just like to have a little fun and don’t blow it or gamble beyond their means it is a great way to entertain. For others, well, there are some sad stories out there of course, but being as we do live in a free country, we must also understand choice.Why do I see gambling on the rise? Well, it seems everywhere I look, in the media, online and in the real world, there is growth in the gambling sector, and it’s very competitive, not just in the USA, but world-wide – and not just in the real world but online too.Recently in Japan Today newspaper there was a story about how Japan is wants to open up gambling in the country stating that the government needs the money and could tax the revenues, rather than losing out as Japanese travel to Macau, Singapore, and Las Vegas.There have been reports that the US Congress may yield to pressure to make online gambling in the US legal, as they clean up the current illegal online gaming sector first. For instance the WSJ had an article “Gambling Site Bodog Shut Down Amid Ongoing Crackdown,” and “US Shuts Sports-Betting Site, Indicts the Founder of Bodog,” published on February 28, 2012.There was a cool article in the Atlanta Business Journal on Leap Day 2012 entitled; “Developer proposes $1 billion gambling complex,” written by Carla Caldwell, which stated that a GA Developer “wants to build a hotel, theater and a game floor with 7,500 video lottery machines, which could generate $350 million yearly to the state’s struggling HOPE Scholarship program. Even though state lawmakers are searching for ways to help HOPE, gambling proposals don’t typically gain widespread support.”There was another segment on CBS News on March 1, 2012 entitled; “Florida House votes to ban so-called Internet cafes,” which discussed how folks were going online at Internet Coffee shops and betting online, which is against FL and US Law for people to do that, while the Café stated that they don’t tell people what they can and cannot do online, even though the place is set-up for gambling online in this way. The segment stated that FL legislators voted to close 1,000 of these types of ‘storefront operations and one legislator dramatically stated;”These are truly the crack cocaine of gambling,” and the segment went onto say; Internet cafes sell customers either phone cards or Internet time. But they also offer customers a chance to redeem electronic sweepstakes on computers that use software that mimics casino-styled games.”Okay so, what is it about gambling that so intrigues humans? Turns out there is a very real psychological reason for human gambling, and I bet that will increase as the human minds in our society continue down the path of instant information, entertainment, and the need to be globally connected in real time, and having continuous mental stimulation – something that gambling does definitely provide with all its excitement, fear, and fun.Out in CA we have lots of Indian Casinos offering deals on meals, and gambling fun, even though in CA gambling is not allowed, but these are on Indian Property of course, which is common throughout the US. Because gambling is so fun, it attracts people from all walks of life; grandmothers, CEOs, the unemployed, and even those who are in charge of enforcing it all. It breaks all barriers of race, religion, nationality, socio-economic planes, and intelligence levels. Gambling is a human thing, I doubt we could stop it if we tried.If folks don’t gamble in casinos, they’ll do it at the horse track, stock market, in business, or some other endeavor where they can pit chance against the potential eventuality for monetary gain. Indeed, I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
