Casino-Gaming :: Gambling or Gaming, Entertainment or Exploitation? (Page 1 of 2)

As more people began to enjoy gambling from the comfort of their homes, and the impacts of Internet gambling became apparent, a change of rules was definitely needed!

More than ten various commissions and trade associations have been established to aid in the monitoring process of gambling. The types of sports betting in the UK include horse and dog racing.

Three categories of gambling are prevalent in the UK. The advent of gambling via the Internet, mobile phone and/or television also served to make the gambling laws that were passed in 1968 seem rather old-fashioned. Known as gaming for around 265 years before the term gambling was introduced, the entertainment value of the many types of wagering money or property continues to grow. Many people feel all gambling is wrong, and are quite firm in their belief.

The history of gambling is quite a storied one. Among these are the National Lottery Commission, the Gambling Commission, British Casino Association, British Horseracing Board, and the Association of British Bookmakers. In most cases, a person must be over age 18 in order to gamble. They accept the wagers, collect money from those who lost a wager, pay those who won, and turn a profit by striving for a balanced book.

A new Gambling Act went into effect in 2007, and the reaction of a large number of people was anything but positive. It recommended that gambling as a whole should be modernized. They refused to recognize any benefits of gambling. Their concern was that the number of casinos in Britain would grow at an alarming rate. Despite the evolution of this popular pastime, gambling isnt always viewed as socially acceptable. This report also suggested that current laws be relaxed to let communities have more freedom of choice concerning their gambling habits. Betting shops and bookmakers also play a big role in the UK gambling scene. . The most vocal criticism of these liberal gambling laws came from the Methodist Church and the Salvation Army. Some must obtain certificates of approval before they can begin their jobs. Gamblers can also place a bet on the Internet or by way of a telephone call. Those who are employed within the gambling industry are held to high standards. Bookmakers have many tasks. They also have the power to impose fines, pull licences, assess penalties, and can see that those who cheat or gamble illegally are prosecuted. Gambling statistics were studied, and the follow-up to this review was dubbed the Bud Report.

The gambling industry in the UK was given a thorough review, approved by the government, during the year 2000. Sports betting is quite popular, and betting shops offer a location to place a bet via betting terminals, seating to watch the events on television, and enjoy some refreshments as well. Nevertheless, the new laws remained, and served to regulate not only certain lotteries, bingo, casinos and gaming machines, but also remote gambling and betting.

Back in 1994, the UK government approved a National Lottery, which helped to make gambling seem more mainstream to the public. The exceptions are fruit machines which pay with tokens, which has no age limit, lotteries that are local, and football pools, with the latter two having an age limit of 16 and above. These are betting, casino style gambling, and lotteries.

Gambling is an exciting pastime, and there are many options for enjoying the many aspects of it whether you are at home or in a casino. The effects of gambling can be far reaching

Forex Trading for a Living

Having a fair and level head is an absolutely essential prerequisite when you think about entering this option. As a beginner, you can only play it low and safe, till you gain the absolutely essential exposure and experience to become a pro. Its dynamics requires great skill and timing, the ability to withstand a few blows (there will certainly be quite a few), and a hundred percent acceptance of a few extra-gray hair that you will always seem to be growing. Persist with your goals and learn from your mistakes. Remember that, when you trade forex for a living, it is your primary source of income, and it is your duty not to put it under unnecessary jeopardy. Failure is a part and parcel of the job, so do not make losing money your final failure. Money management will also teach you to retain your winners in the “winners” category over the long run. Always trade in currency pairs, for this will serve as a kind of hedging technique. Options and forex trading require much more in the mind than in skills. It is true that you can earn huge amounts by trading in these markets, but it is also true that only a few highly skilled individuals actually do so, and the probability of that happening is very low. If you think you have it, go for it, as the gains can be especially high.

Before you dive head first into the forex trading field, please gain adequate information about queries like, “does anyone make a living out of it” and “how much capital does one need for it.” These two questions should be enough of a reality check on your big money schemes. If you think you have what it takes, read the following paragraphs that will take you a step closer in learning it, like a pro.

Prerequisites to Enter These Markets

Apart from this, you need to have adequate financial knowledge about how these markets work, what are the different trading strategies for the same, and which is the best strategy for you, i.e., which one is in the best alignment with your income goals, investment horizons, risk willingness, and other factors. Know who your friends and advisors are, and check their background track records before you follow them blindly. If you thought that this job entailed just a few hours in front of your computer, expertise in a few technical analysis tools for trend analysis and statistical probabilities, and a secure means of steady income flow, you couldn’t be more wrong. Gain experience and exposure first. To help you in your dream job, the paragraphs below list the main trading strategies. Once you are adept at the workings of the markets and have turned pro in skills and market timing, you can consider making it your full-time occupation. The forex market is too fickle to stay down, or up for that matter, forever. Thus, it is up to you to make an informed decision regarding whether you have it in you to go for it. Only if you have the grit and determination to succeed despite failures and have the requisite financial knowledge and education, are you qualified to even consider becoming a full-time forex trader. Mastering the techniques mentioned below should help you in your goal:

Trading StyleEarning ObjectiveTime HorizonOther InformationPosition More than one thousand pips Many weeks or even months Though the stop-loss is high, at about 100 to 200 pips, the position taken is of a small size, less than 1% of account size Swing Between 200 to 500 pips Between 2 to 10 days With a position size of about 2% of the account, the strategy comes with a 25 to 50 pips stop-loss. Intraday Between 75 and 150 pips Single day timeframe Position is of about 2% to 5% of account size and there is a stop-loss of around 15 to 25 pips. Scalp Less than 50 pips About 3 hours max Position sizes of between 5 to 25% of account size with a stop loss of between 7 and 20 pips. pip = the smallest possible price change in an exchange rate

Tips

As a beginner, just aim for maximum account growth at minimal risk. Till then, make it a secondary job, parallel to your primary one. Learn all the possible money management skills, for they are absolutely essential for survival in this rough and tough field. If that probability in itself is low, you can just imagine how low the probability of that happening on a regular basis is; think about it.

Strategies. It is always best to take time out after a loss or failure, for this will help you view your mistakes objectively. In this trade, beginner’s luck always wears off, and it is a sheer skill and precise market timing that will let you survive in the long run. Leave your personal feelings out of this, especially greed, for it can be your downfall. Granted that the filed has scope for big money, but like all other things we do for a livelihood, this too has some pros and cons. Waiting for higher gains that may never materialize is a common folly. You can move on to taking on increased risk for reaping greater rewards, when you advance in this field. If you already have another job, never leave it on a whim to trade forex and making big money. Furthermore, you must learn the tricks of controlling losing bets from cascading out of control. Always hedge your risks. If it is the risk you crave, you have other, marginally safer, (and easier to learn) options like stocks and futures trading. Last but not the least, the market is a cruel world that shows big dreams. Though these may reduce your upscale profit potential, these will also put a floor on your potential losses. Exiting positions at the right time is the only thing that will make you money. Trust your intuition and experience. Great successes can only be based on proper defenses. If you are considering trading forex for a living, here’s a word of caution for you. Open positions in forex markets, especially when you have taken large positions in a single currency, leaving you with very heavy risks of potential losses, in case of adverse exchange rate movements in that particular currency. Do a proper trend analysis to know your entry and exit positions. These are followed by some tips to help you trade forex and make it your primary, full-time job.

Your trading game plan should be based on one of the following strategies or should be a combination of them. Forex trading is surely not for the fainthearted

State-led gambling busts lead to forfeiture, selective prosecutions

Authorities note that in Georgia, wagering money on golf and small card game betting is by law considered gambling and therefore illegal.

A formal funding request is likely to be forwarded to the nine-member Macon-Bibb Board of Commissioners sometime when Fiscal 2016 budget is up for discussion and passage in July 2015.

The scale of the arrest was so large that District Attorney Greg Edwards recused himself from prosecuting the case. Davis, who assumed office after being elected in November 2012, estimates that three hundred cameras will be needed to outfit all patrol deputies. The money is from a $175,000 settlement via ‘forfeiture’ from one of the Macon gas stations involved in a large gambling raid which occurred in November 2014. However, remarkably, no one was officially indicted and the six people who were arrested will not face a trial or any jail time.

Cooke officially presented Macon-Bibb Sheriff David Davis with a check for $43,929 for the sheriffs offices share of the settlement, which Davis said would serve as seed money to eventually help outfit deputies with body cameras. The June 2014 arrest originated from a search warrant which was executed at a suspected gambling house in Albany. A special prosecutor had been named for the recent high-profile gambling case involving former Albany mayor Willie Adams, businessman Robert Bob Brooks and 12 others. The cost, according to Davis via the Telegraph, could reach $300,000.

At a press conference David Cooke, Bibb County’s district attorney, said the following: “Based on the evidence we developed in the course of this investigation, the owners of the Shell station ultimately decided to cooperate with the state. In December 2014, Bibb Sheriff David Davis had gone on record publicly in voicing his support for the use of body cameras and is hoping that he can equipped his deputies this summer.

Even though Macon’s District Attorney did not file charges regarding local convenience store owners, fourteen people who were arrested from a separate June 2014 bust in the southwest Georgia town of Albany were formally indicted in early January 2015. … Plus, the collaborative effort of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Macon-Bibb County Sheriff’s Department produced Bibb County’s largest-ever commercial gambling bust–ever. Based upon this cooperation, no criminal charges will be filed with respect to this location.”. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation raided a poker game at the former Riverhouse Restaurant on Lake Chehaw. Eleven Macon-Bibb convenience stores were raided and six people were arrested.

On Wednesday, January 7, Central Georgia’s NBC affiliate — Macon’s WMGT-TV– reported that the Bibb County Sheriff’s Department will be the beneficiary of a check given by David Cooke, the district attorney in Bibb County. Statements from those arrested noted the game had been ongoing for years

The Present and Future of Online Gambling by John Trodey

In short, it is a very exciting time for the online gambling industry.

But mobile device gambling isn’t just a Latin American phenomenon. More regulations are in place to help reassure consumers, and more payment and currency options are available. Mobile devices are rapidly growing in popularity everywhere, and the web casinos that develop applications for it are the ones who will be first in line to take advantage of this market. . These 33 countries, with a population of around 570 million, are ripe for investment by web gambling firms. In 2009, internet access reached nearly 200 million Latin Americans, and it was growing at a clip of 30% per year.

Many online gambling venues credit the increase in popularity to the development of industry standards by groups like eCOGRA (eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance), better responsiveness to customer service, and a commitment to providing players with safer, higher quality sites. When the first online casino went live in 1996, nobody could have predicted the twists, turns, and huge growth the industry would experience, particularly when you add in smart mobile devices, which are finding their way into more hands every day.

Statistics by Nielsen Media Research in 2010 showed that in the UK alone, online gambling traffic was up by 40% over 2009. It also found that 46% of online players were women and about 50% were middle aged men with above average salaries. Newer payment methods are coming online, and more currency and language options are also assisting in the worldwide growth of gambling websites.

In March 2011, one of the major online casinos announced that it had dealt its one billionth blackjack hand. The graphics and software platforms are better than ever, casinos are taking a new look at customer service, and mobile handheld devices like Android phones and iPhones are opening up a new sector in online gambling. Mobile online gambling appears to have the greatest potential for growth in Latin America, because device penetration in the region was at 80% in 2009, which was above the world average, with mobile networks reaching nearly 500 million people. And when you think of how many web casinos exist, it gives you some idea of just how popular visiting casinos online is. And in the US, the National Annenberg Survey of the Young found that some 16% of college-aged men visited online casinos at least once a month, up dramatically over 2008 figures.

Online gambling has come quite a long way since 1996. In fact, investors in areas like financial service providers and online server operators are keenly eying Latin America as a front for expansion.

A chief reason for the appeal of expanding online gaming into Latin America is the existing telecommunications infrastructure, including widespread availability of broadband and mobile internet. Couple this with the rapidly evolving graphics and game features specifically for mobile devices, and it is clear why any casino online looking to expand would do well to consider this region.

One of the biggest world regions for expansion of online gambling is Latin America

I. With the expansion of the online gambling industry, players have come to expect only the highest quality of online gambling facilities. Casino.org is an online directory that aids gambling participants find the top online casinos that are safe, secure, anti-spam, tested and trustworthy from around the world. New features and regular system updates are needed to maintain the websites to stay ahead in the market. As of September 2011, the EU member states still dealt differently with online gambling, with legislations ranging prohibition, online gambling on grey markets and monopoly licenses for online gambling providers to entirely open markets. In 2012, European online gambling business operators recorded almost a 45% increase in the total online gambling yield. It is becoming ever popular and its growth is greatly driven by factors such as internet penetration.

The global online gambling industry is one of the biggest and most rapidly expanding market at the moment. While established markets have reached maturity and have less room for revenue growth, they will still perform strongly and benefit from a recovering economy. With a net worth of $30 billion, last year it expanded at the rate of 2.5% after a slowdown in the 2009 global economic recession and is expected to continue to grow in the coming five years.

About 51% of the world’s population takes part in some form of gambling every year, thus signifying obvious financial benefits from online gambling websites. Industry Definition

C. In response to the high risk of fraud in the ever-growing European online gambling sector, the parliament of the European Union initiated an effort to govern the market. Online gambling was banned in most Asian countries as of 2012, but consumers generally remained interested in gambling nevertheless. Online gambling may be rather intimidating to both a novice and an expert player because of the endless options on the internet. Analysis of Major Markets
