Online gambling is any type of gambling conducted via the internet. This includes casinos, virtual poker and even sports betting. The first online gambling site opened for the public, was ticketing for the World Series of Poker in 1994. In the next two years, with the growth of technology, these online gambling sites grew to become global and were able to conduct not only the regular Las Vegas style gambling, but also niche gambling like dog racing, high stakes poker and even sports trading.
Today, online gambling has exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry. Not only do online casinos offer all the traditional casino games, but they now also provide a variety of betting choices, from sports betting, casino slots and video poker. Many online gambling sites even offer “tour” websites where you can actually see what it’s like to partake in the online gambling experience right from your living room.
Perhaps the most popular form of online gambling is the online cafe casino. An online cafe casino is simply a site that offers a collection of games from across the world such as online slots, video poker and keno. Cafe casino websites are generally free to use and offer a cashback program. However, there is usually an hourly fee which is required. Most cafe casino websites offer bonuses and other incentives for online gamblers, such as special prizes or even cash back.
