How gambling has become popular all over the world

15-12-2020

When people used to think about gambling, it’s more than likely they thought of Las Vegas. Some of the biggest films and TV shows, including Friends, used the city as the location for many of their episodes involving casino games. Nowadays, you can enjoy the popular pastime pretty much anywhere in the world. Here’s how gambling became a global success.

Indonesia

The continent of Asia has always been a fan of traditional games. In most countries, the vast majority of board games follow a quite standard template. There’ll probably be a dice, and whatever number you roll is the number of steps you need to take around the board before carrying out a different action depending on where you land. The board games popular around Asia are much more varied. Many of them involve several specially designed pieces made especially for that game. Not only do successful players need to memorise exactly what all of these pieces mean, they need to think quickly about how best to use those pieces against their opponent.

As many families are brought up playing such complicated games, it’s no surprise that gambling is popular in many Asian countries like Indonesia. Being able to understand all the possible scenarios quickly is an ideal skill to have when it comes to playing games like poker or blackjack. Ever since online gaming was introduced, an increasing amount of the country’s residents have been spending time playing at home. The website Daftar Sbobet is currently the largest online gambling platform site in Indonesia, and has a range of games almost as broad as the range of traditional board games mentioned earlier.

The UK

Just a decade or two ago, if you wanted to gamble in the UK you were forced to either go to your local bookmakers or to a racecourse. If you wanted to play a casino style game, you were forced to seek out one of the very few casino halls around the country. Since the introduction of online gaming, all of that has now changed. Not only can you play on your laptop or phone, but more and more physical locations to play the game have opened up due to the increased popularity caused by these online games. More and more people are learning how to play the games online and then wanting to use those skills in a real-life hall. It’s even popular to hire a casino table for a themed party, whether that’s a big birthday, a team building event or even a wedding.

Canada

While Canada is seen as many as a rather quiet country, they’re very vocal when it comes to gaming. Over the years, they’ve had some huge lottery jackpots as the game is so popular around the country.

A recent survey found around three out of four Canadians play some form of gambling regularly. As well as the lottery, the same casino, card and sport betting games are just as popular here as they are becoming in the rest of the world.
