All you need to know about online casinos
Well, to begin with: what is gambling? Gambling is a sort of betting games where people bet their money or anything that has a value with a hope of getting a prize that is higher value. That doesn’t seem problematic right? Yes, the problem arises when this hope or interest turns into an addiction. Previously, these gambling practices used to take place in places where huge people gathered, let it be bars, pubs etc.
The rise of online casinos
Then come to a shift, in the late 1990s gambling started to gain popularity over the web. At current, there are many websites meant for gambling. Games such as casinos, poker online, baccarat lotteries are the sources of gambling. The term gambling maybe was more popular in the countries abroad, but it is now common in India too, how? I hope everyone is aware of the so-called rummy/ teen Patti games which are a type of gambling in India.
Such games when played for passing the time or fun can be good but addiction to anything is not so good. The lust to earn or win more and more, such greedy emotions can land you in trouble often. Gambling is illegal in most of the countries. Some well-developed countries such as the US, Canada, and a few more permits gambling with the proper license. Any groups without a license can be put behind the bars or punished.
In India gambling is illegal. As per the public gambling act that was passed in the year 1867, any type of gambling is restricted and is illegal in India. But there are states such as Sikkim that permit gambling within the state limits with licensing. As there is no serious law that makes gambling illegal in India foreign companies take advantage of it. They lure the Indian people towards online gambling and make profits.
Fraud or genuine sites
Often these gambling sites turn out to be a fraudster. The process of betting one’s money and collecting the rewards is made through credit cards. People are influenced into such games by promises such as:
- They might stand a chance to win 100000 rupees or even more.
- The amount would be debited to their accounts in 2-3 working days, and so on.
And then, what happens most of the time? The thing is that companies have their own people in such games or lucky draw or what so ever it is. And the prizes are given to them in the rotation. The common people tend to get attracted towards such lures. There is no loss for the company; they just reap the money from people.
The youth today seem to be victimized through online gambling sites. Prevalence of teenagers over online gambling has risen. The number of times they visit such has also increased. Those people who indulge themselves in online gambling may also get attracted to offline gambling.
The consequences one may face is mental pressure, financially ill status, change in behaviors affect both self and society. Be safe and secure, and away from such addictions.
