Information that Online Gambling is No More Addictive than Any Other Form of Gambling

This week an advertorial was published in the UK news publication Daily Mirror regarding the real story on addiction rates in online gambling.

"Is online gambling addictive? Don't bet on it, suggests new research," includes facts from a study conducted by the Harvard University Medical School which indicates that online gambling does not create more problem gambling than the land based environment.

In closing, the article states, "The Harvard research suggests that the frequency at which people play online, and the sums of money they lose, are not the cause for concern that campaigners would have us believe, and that online casinos are no more responsible for creating problem gamblers than their bricks and mortar counterparts, despite dire warnings to the contrary."

    If you have a gambling addiction then online gambling is going to be a problem. I have been in many a freeroll tournament. I was in first place, but the person who won first place paid half the prize money they won to get the first place prize, exactly the same amount they would have ended up getting.

    This article I do agree with.....games that you don't even have a chance to win your money back...we will not mention games....but those of you out there know the one's I'm talking about....the ones that you need to buy your way to win that game or maps you have to purchase etc....at least the online casino's give you a chance to win your money back. Which I can say positively ....I have done over and over. Great research Harvard.

    Finally some clever scientists publish such info. Because governements always try to regulate online casinos, because it is very addictive and big danger. Of course it is true, but online gambling is really probably even less addictive than offline gambling, so stop please saying that online gambling is bad.
