Online casinos are the oldest form of online games. They’ve been around since 1998.
The first online casino was launched by Microgaming in 1998. It was the introduction of the world’s first true interactive casino environment, with over 30 games available to play right from your web browser, no download required. America Online was one of their main advertising partners at the time.
Since then, 3 additional companies have come up with their own versions which are now widely used. These are PartyPoker Online Casino, Casino-on-Net and Sportsbetting Online Casino.
Gambling is the act of playing a game, either for money or other stakes. We can gamble at casinos, on horse races, on games of chance or skill, and online. The aim is usually to make money by betting on the outcome of a game or other event.
Gamblers are sometimes called players and gamblers. There were almost six billion people who gambled in 2012 which is very much different than the three billion if we compare it with 1990. Gambling sites are gaining popularity at an alarming rate with over 1 billion visits per month worldwide in 2015.
