In the news: British Columbia is still struggling to get their PlayNow service back up and running. Touted as North America’s first government-sanctioned online casino, it’s definitely the BC Lottery Company’s pride and joy. Or would be, if the darn thing hadn’t quit during the first day. Too many people trying to play blackjack online or something…but that wasn’t the only problem. Apparently some player accounts were ‘visible’ to others…and at least one of those others used $8000 worth of other people’s money!).
Yikes. If that wasn’t bad enough, the BC Lottery guy only mentioned the number of people and not the failure of security…and it took all of two days for the truth to come out. He’ll be looking to refinance his home soon, I’ll bet!
You have found the ‘Net’s Brain. I hope that you’re not too disappointed to find out that the Internet is thinking mostly about online gambling!
I know I’m not disappointed. Personally, I love gambling and I love freedom, and the Internet has given regular people like us the means to enjoy our freedom to gamble.
I won’t go so far as to say we have a right to gamble…but why not? Sure, there are a small minority of people that overdo it, or fail spectacularly, and make the rest of us look bad. That’s always the way. But by and large, online gamblers are nothing more than people who enjoy putting a little money on the line at a game of chance and/or skill. What, exactly, is wrong with that?
Here on this site, we’ll try to give the uninitiated (or partially-initiated) a crash course in the many delights that the online gambling world has in store for them. Sure, there are some scams out there, and some companies that are run by people who simply want to take your money. That’s true for the Internet as a whole, and in the ‘real world’ too. There was a time when I wouldn’t have dared to do any real-money business online — not even eBay, Amazon, or my bank’s online account services!
Well, those times are behind us. We’re no more at risk on the Internet than we are taking out our wallet to pay for food at the drive-through (maybe a bit less!). And there are now a wide variety of Internet gambling companies run by respectable, established, and (most importantly?) ethical businessmen.
Take a look at our pages, we’ll give you some recommendations. Don’t just take our word for it, though (after all, who are we? We could be anybody!). We highly recommend that you do a little research on your own! Your own research is always a good idea where you are trying to gamble or purchase waterfront real estate.
