March 13th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The longing for making quick bucks may be as ancient as human civilization. Gambling was prevalent in many parts of the planet from the dawn of time. The initial reference of wagering is found in ancient documents where one can see the talk of games of Dice gambled on by Nobility all over the earth. The gambling grew in variety and alternatives over time and the most entertaining and favored amongst them was the betting on Horses.

With the penetration and acceptance of the net, the net betting established somewhere around 1996 with a couple of casino sites showing up, became one of the most beloved net activity. Today the estimated yearly revenue from these webpages numbering many thousands is more than 7000 million dollars. That works out to around $19 million each day and speaks volumes about the popularity and turnover of web wagering pages.

Wagering on the web comes with benefits and risks. The benefits being larger, online wagering has gone beyond the conventional betting around the world. The first and chief among them is the comfort and the wide array the web offers for bettors. The internet sites, which continue to grow in numbers every second, provide a wide array of games like the familiar slot machine attracting the players for the ever eluding Jackpot, the common man’s playing card games, craps, and roulette. Each provides unique excitements.
