Gambling online has grown from a cottage industry to a multibillion-dollar business. The main reason for this is the incredible convenience offered by internet gaming. No longer are you forced to pack up a cooler full of goodies, fill the car with gas, and schlep for hours through the desert.
Gambling Online is a matter of finding a site you like, downloading the company's software (which is usually free), wiring an initial deposit into your gaming account, and making your first wager. There are no drinks to buy, no crowds to contend with, and none of the pressure that comes when all eyes are on you. Of course, the stakes still run high, as the money involved is very real, not funny money.
Types of Gambling Online
Twenty one remains one of the most popular online casino games, simply because it's so easy to play. What many people don't realize, however, is that their odds are actually slightly better betting the pass line at the craps table or betting "on the outside" at roulette. In each of these cases, the player's odds are nearly 50-50, which can be several percentage points higher than at the blackjack table.
With craps, players place bets against the house whenever a "shooter" comes up to roll the dice. If the shooter makes a seven or 11 on the "come out" roll, the game is over, and those bettors who placed their money on the pass line are winners. Of course, if the shooter makes a two, three, or 12, ("craps"), the game is over and the bettors lose. The next page details some of the finer points of online craps, which is another great introductory game if you've never gambled before.
