Huge Gambling Market Still Sees Companies Fail

When you think about the term gambling, one of the first places that you think of is Las Vegas but the moment that you question where people think of when you say the worlds online gambling, you will see exactly how split the marketplace is at the moment.

Although millions, if not billions of dollars are being spent within the gambling market on a weekly basis, the recent global recession has meant that the market has become even hard to keep your head above water, especially as a company.

According to Paul Graceland, a number of online poker sites have been the latest firms to be the victim of the downfall in the amount of money that players have to be able to spend how they like, saying that not one but two sites have closed their doors to members as they look towards new ventures.

The news doesn’t prove to be much of a shock when you think about the size of the market and the constant growth of sites that are breaking into it every month and with many of those simply thinking that they can offer a new skin on existing software and tempt players away from their more established homes, they are facing an uphill struggle to say the least.

Online casinos seem to be more equipped to be able to fend of the chance of closure, or they simply vanish into thin air without the news breaking into the media but with a much higher chance of winning big and losing even bigger, maybe some people are simply happy to see their newly emptied accounts close along with the sites.

Where will the online gambling market end up, nobody knows, but with Spain now saying that they are going to allow gambling as long as sites are hosted on a Spanish governed domain name, there is a new market for which casinos will be able to fight for and I’m pretty sure that more countries will follow in upcoming times.

Online Gambling When Bored Can Pay Off

Well there have been thousands of websites that I have visited over the years that have always said that gambling online should never be done on the basis that you are bored, instead you should want to dedicate a certain amount of time to your action but having seen a news story on it seems that it does pay to play!

With the nation locked into football tournament action thanks to the Euro 2012 competition that is dominating the tv at the moment, one woman decided that she would take a few moments to log into her Ladbrokes Bingo account and have a couple of games in order to escape from the football coverage, a decision that she is now pleased she made.

Mrs Potter not only won during her short session, she scooped the third biggest payout ever in the history of online slots while taking just two £5 spins while waiting for her next online bingo game to begin and her second spin will be one that she will cherish for years to come!

Lisa Potter, who is 33 and from Oxfordshire explained that she was simply trying to pass the time and thought that she would have a quick punt at the £1.3 million jackpot associated with the slot game on which she won and low and behold, her second spin scooped the prize!

Clearly not everything that you see online regarding the best gambling practises can be taken as gospel!

What is Online Bingo Offering to Me?

Well as I am trying to move with the times and the trends within the online gambling community, I have decided that I would see what all the fuss was about with online bingo, I mean surely the game can’t offer you the chance to be able to use skill and ability to be able to outwit your opponents, so how can anyone actually think that online poker numbers could potentially fall below that of the latest gambling craze?

The fact of the matter is, the popularity of online bingo is not drawing players like me away from the lure of online casinos and poker rooms, instead the operators are simply offering a higher level of accessibility to people that are already interested in the game, something that they have been crying out for a long time.

Anyway, heading into the online bingo world, I have to say that the number of sites that are offering the games is quickly rising, much like when online poker was announced and with that I can see that the game does carry a high level in interest within the online market, a good thing for those that offer the players the chance to be able to play the game from the comfort of their own home.

I have been looking to find some free bingo online offers (like millions of players are doing already) and looking at sites like and others, I have to admit that I like the offer model that the sites are offering, none of this nonsense that you get with online poker, the funds are placed into your account the moment that you deposit into your account and you get to keep everything that you win from those funds (I mean that you can withdraw this is you want to), so there are no requirements or milestones that you have to reach to be able to unlock the free funds.

I haven’t joined up to any site as yet as I have been out of the country for a week or so but as soon as I get a free night where I can have a play about with the game, I’ll be signing up and seeing what I can get from the gameplay, you never know, it might just offer me a release from the stress of a bad beat at the poker tables or a dry run at the BlackJack table!

You should know me by now, i'll be giving stories on my highs and lows with the site that I choose, whether that be good or bad!
