Online Gambling: Where It Stops, Nobody Knows

from the deal-another-hand dept

A fairly interesting article all about the problems associated with online gambling. The article is pretty thorough in bringing up all the various issues. It discusses the addiction problem, and how many gambling addicts are drawn to the internet – where they can gamble in private, and there’s never an issue of getting thrown out. It talks about the various legal solutions, though it doesn’t point out that any legal solution is likely to be ineffective, since there are so many off-shore online casinos. The article also talks about people who gamble at work – wondering where the liability might fall. Clearly, this is more of a social problem, where people need to be educated. Since it seems difficult for the people who are addicted to gambling to realize it at the time, this is an issue where hte people around them need to notice that there’s a problem, and intervene as soon as possible. Hopefully, articles like this one help to get that message out.
