Why Gambling Online Should Be a Right and Not a Privilege

Why Gambling Online Should Be a Right and Not a Privilege Why Gambling Online Should Be a Right and Not a Privilege

Have you ever wondered why governments tolerate land-based casinos? But, at the same time they are very negative about online casinos. Is it because they have double standards and close ties to the land-based industry?

Of course. Many politicians receive funds for their campaigns from the people behind the biggest casino operations. So, when they are unable to tap into the money of online casinos, they tend to be negative about it, which results in making online gambling illegal.

Online Gambling Offers More

Online gambling is much more profitable for the common player. As you can find out from this website, online casinos offer much more than land-based.

Gambling is one of the oldest past-times in the history of mankind. Yet, constraints against legally exercising it from within our homes still exist. It’s downright prudish. Online casinos offer:

• Better bonuses;
• Better payouts;
• Different currencies;
• Playing from the comfort of your home;
• More ways to save money while gambling.

Why don’t we have the right to do as we please in the privacy of our homes? Gambling magnates like Sheldon Adelson, who is basically the godfather of gambling in America, says that online gambling will ruin people’s lives. He has even said that online gambling will produce many gambling addicts. Really?

A study performed on 40,000 people at Harvard Medical School concluded that online players are actually more moderate gamblers than land-based players. They tend to spend minimal amounts of money. Furthermore, the study suggests that it’s far easier to police gambling addiction online than it is in real life casinos. 

Hypocrisy

Lawmakers have always been hypocritical. But, their hypocrisy can be best seen when it comes to legalizing online gambling.

Take lotteries as an example. People get addicted to playing the lottery, but advertisements enticing people to play the lottery are abound. It’s a game of chance isn’t it? But if it’s a game of chance that you can play online, then it’s a no-no.

Do you know the chances of hitting the lottery? 1 to more than 100 million. And do you know the chances to get struck by a lightning? 1 to 9 million.

Our right to gamble online has been taken away by lawmakers that realize that they may not get a piece of the cake as they do with land-based casinos. They are afraid that money will pour out of the country to off-shore online gambling sites. But, they fail to see the good examples such as the UK and their flawless relationship with online gambling companies.

Gambling online should be our right and not privilege just like it’s your right to smoke or drink at home, have sex with your wife, have a party or anything that you want to do in the privacy of your home. As long as you are not hurting anybody, it’s your right to do it.
