Online gambling is any type of gambling conducted via the internet, including online casinos, live casino and poker. This also includes video poker, electronic lottery, wagering and many other types of online gambling. The first online gambling site opened for the public, was lottery ticketing for the first ever Liechtenstein International Online Game in October 1994. It was a service offered by the German-based LOTRO Gambling Services. Since then there have been online gambling sites opened all over the world.
While this form of gambling has grown enormously over the years, there are some differences between the different gambling sites available to you to gamble online. First of all, different sites offer different types of wagers. Some sites offer Blackjack, Slots, Baccarat, and other games; some offer only Poker and Online Roulette, while others offer everything. Many sites offer bonus or discount offers for new members, so it pays to shop around to find the best site for you. You can usually find a list of these online gambling sites at the Gambling Information Center at the Commission on Gambling and Online Casino Review.
Finally, online gambling sites offer a variety of ways to pay. Some allow you to fund your account using credit cards, or you may use one of the many Paypal methods that are available. Some allow you to play for real cash, and some require you to play via a credit card. Either way, you need to read the terms and conditions of the gambling sites you are playing at closely, to ensure that you are being treated fairly.
