Whilst indeed there are still discussions around the problematic moral grey area in which much of the betting industry find itself, this has not hindered its continuous expansion in new markets. Individuals today bet on a variety of things and competitions in an easy and legal manner, they can go in person to diverse betting agencies or they can indulge themselves from the comfort of their own home.
Gambling and betting while traditionally being related to casino’s as of recent history they have become the norm within the world of sports. Historically, betting has always existed to some degree in the sports world, such as horse races but there were some downsides to that. The individual needed to go himself to the race tacks where these events would take place, there he would place the bet and follow the outcome of the race. Besides the actual effort of going to the venue in question, there was also the ocassional stigma that came with the territory, that of being a betting man or woman.
Betting on sports today is a very different experience, whilst there are still betting agencies to which individuals can go and place their bets, most of it is done online. This process is by far more streamlined, less time consuming and anonymous. The success of this type of online betting is quite visible, as online betting agencies have been able to engage in sponsorship of teams in a variety of competitions, from traditional sports to even E-Sports that deal with video game competitions.
The process has not only been streamlined and made much easier, but unlike in the older days when he would watch the outcome of a single betting event in which he took part, today he is able to bet on a variety of different competitions at the same time and is able to watch the outcome simultaneously.
