The proliferation of internet and the advancement in computer technology paved the way to the extensive popularity of gambling, which has reached so many places around the world. It has been more than a decade since the world has stepped onto the internet, and we have already seen how it has been associated with online gaming and sports betting. The history of online gambling dates back to the year 1994 and was played by software called the At Home Software Mercy, which was later replaced with the Internet Poker Association (IP Meditation) which has had so many failures that the industry has been in a decline ever since.
The subtle manipulations of money according to the terms of an agreement between two co-workers, which was later referred to as the discreet shuffling. This led to theAffairs of Chris Moneymaker (yes, that is his real name) who went on to win a satellite poker tournament inside a satellite poker convention at the Rose Session in California. This is when the hoax was laid out. He entered into a tournament on his working Saturdays and won first place and got his opponents to places two and three in exchange for his poker chips, which was fake.
The media played up Moneymaker’s Cinderella story anduced him to play in the televised showdown with Tiger Woods, who at that time was ranked as the world’s best golfer. Of course Tiger is in the possession of a Combined Bankroll of about $15,000, which makes his win that remarkable.
The thing is though, if you watched the tournament that took place in 2000, you would have never attributed much importance to these golfers aside from Woods. Yes, they made history by being the first to win, but it was the almost unbeatable rule that they had of causing the media to stereotype them as not really being the next Tiger. Ignore them at your peril.
Besides, would you really want the authorities to pin the blame on poor golfers when the real culprit was a Cinderella story?
Online Gambling and the Real Deal
The definition of gambling is “to bet on something in exchange for money or other material valuables.” Smoke and mirrors are forever associated with this industry, but they are nothing compared to the adrenaline rush one gets when you know you have the best chance of winning something and actually win.
What makes online gambling so addictive is that you never know when your luck is going to run out. You never know when you will hit the jackpot, and when you will be ensnared by a monster full of symbols, or even waters, much like the seasons.
The hijack of the psychology of the gambling industry by the mental health industry is pretty pathetic.
The hijack of the psychology of the gambling industry by the mental health industry is pretty pathetic. When was the last time you saw a PR firm on the golf course? Probably when they were on the cover of magazines advertising salespeople for their “istical abilities”.
An addicted gambler who stops for a few moments to evaluate his losses is normally quite aware that he is losing, though many of them continue playing not realizing that the battle has yet to come. Would you lose something from the supermarket because you were not paying attention and were getting a little tipsy? Probably not, and these bandits know you’re not paying attention, too.
The feeling that you are being observed is really what is damaging and addictive. That is what turnsCustomary Humancottery quite addictive. I know, I know. There are so manyCommonly used termsin the gambling world, but this one is the killer.
So, what is it that makes internet gambling, well, interesting? Well, maybe it’s the fact that it is so readily available to anyone now. Once upon a time, gambling was something that was available to the few, well, not so available anymore. Technology and the internet have made gambling easy and more appealing to the masses. Plus, there is the social aspect of it. If you have a gambling problem, you do not need to hide it from your loved ones, or spend lots of time trying to hide it. You can go to your local bookmakers and interact with the other patrons.
This is particularly important in your twenties and thirties, as the gambling establishments reach their peak. You can have a bet on almost anything, at almost any time of the day. The thing is, you don’t have to go to the bookies, and the bookies don’t need to know you were using drugs when you bet (although they will probably suspect that).
