Welcome to our first lesson. Before moving too far ahead, we'd like to begin with just a brief overview of what has made online gambling so popular. If you've just arrived at our site and this first lesson, chances are that you're a newcomer to the world of online casinos and curious about what all the talk is about.
It's important to point out that the activity of gambling itself has been around for centuries. Games of chance held at fairs and festivals have evolved into their modern versions, which can be found in casinos today. People have enjoyed such games and other gambling activities because of the excitement of potentially getting something for nothing and beating the house.
Unlike gambling in general, which has a long and extensive history, the online variety is a more recent phenomenon. Its surge in popularity has much to due with the simultaneous surge in status and availability of the internet but also is based in large part on the unique aspects online operators are able to bring to the table vs. their land-based counterparts.
First of all, you don't have to leave your house. Instead of making the trip to Vegas, Atlantic City, Monaco, Macau, etc., now all one has to do is click and within seconds you can be wagering as much or as little money as you like playing the game of your choice.
Also, unlike the atmosphere of land-based casinos which can be noisy, intimidating and smoke-filled, online gambling eliminates all of that worry and ensures that the experience occurs as you'd.
Naturally, with so many advantages and heightened accessibility, online gambling's popularity has risen dramatically which, in turn, has created even more options for you the player and increased levels of comfort, reliability and security.
Ok, so now that you know why you're here, let's move on to our next introductory lesson.
