An Introduction To Online Betting
Online betting is any form of betting conducted over the internet. This includes casinos, online poker and online sports betting among others. The very first online betting venue open to the public, was ticket selling in Las Vegas, in October 1994. Betting has taken off since then.
Over the past several years online betting has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry. There are many different types of online gambling including Bingo, Craps, Roulette, Keno, Sports Betting, Internet Gambling, and Remote Gambling among others. With the growth of this industry came new regulations for online gaming that serve to protect consumers. Many states now have online gaming laws that regulate and authorise the games, although only a few regulate online betting itself. These laws differ from state to state. The main factor governing all online gaming is whether it is done in compliance with the law.
New Jersey is one such state that governs online betting and its regulation. New Jersey is the home of football in America. The NFL has been conducting its regular season games over the internet ever since its inception. As a result, there are millions of people from around the country that tune into NFL games to see their favourite teams and players in action. A large number of Americans take part in online betting.
In the past the UK gambling industry was largely unregulated, and consisted of a few isolated bookmakers. Because of this, there was a lot of fraud going on and a lot of people got involved in illegitimate transactions. Today however the UK gambling commission has been trying to tighten up the sector by coming up with a number of new laws and regulations. Among these new laws is the Contract of Offer process that requires a lot less documentation and paperwork when it comes to online gambling in the UK.
This is a good example of how a new law can help to regulate a sector. The Contract of Offer process basically allows players to book tickets at online casinos in two ways – via a system of ‘bookies’ or through a system of electronic vouchers. If you play at a live casino in the UK then you will probably be playing against other betters. In this case you are going to be able to win the money you set out to win via your ticket. The main article in this series will explain why electronic vouchers are preferable to bookmakers and why the UK gambling industry is now mainly controlled by a few large organisations.
