The Suite Blog >> May, 2009
Blog Entry of the Month: If I had to choose between regulating online gambling and land-based casinos, I would definitely go with online gambling. I mean, for one, I wouldn't have a job anymore if online gambling was taken out. And two, it's just the way of the future. Going digital, or should I say, the internet - simply cannot be stopped. It can be regulated - but it cannot stop. Nor should it be. Seriously - can you imagine having to look up some reviews on a restaurant, plan a trip, or even pull up a recipe on how to cook fish, without the internet. Think about it. Most of the luxuries afforded by the internet, we couldn't even do. Secondly, even if we could, it would mean going down the library, making a ton of phone calls - basically it would entail taking up a large portion of our day. So, to reiterate my point, the internet is here to stay. Now, for all the anti-ambling folks out there, I understand your concern for giving minors and vulnerable people heightened opportunity to get into some serious trouble as a result of gambling at the casino. Surely, it happens. Just take a look at the recent case of the alleged Craigslist Killer - Philip Markoff - who racked up thousands in debt at Foxwoods Casino (or was it Mohegan Sun...can't remember). He didn't do it online, although that could have very well happened. However, the clear difference here is that brick 'n mortar casino gambling is regulated, while online gambling (at least in the U.S.) isn't. What many people don't understand is that online gambling actually affords heightened security and protection for minors and addicts. The technology exists! And so do the regulatory mandates! Oh, and did I mention the evidence procured by Harvard researchers? Let's talk about that. The Director of Harvard Medical School's Division of Addictions, Dr. Howard Shaffer, recently published findings that show online bettors to be much more moderate in their gambling than brick 'n mortar gamblers. Dr. Shaffer also stated that despite increased gambling the world over (largely thanks to the internet), the rate of problem gamblers has remained about the same, thus nullifying the argument that with increased gambling comes an equal increase in problem gamblers. But then again, there's an even larger hole - The vast majority of those people opposed to online gambling, are not opposed to brick 'n mortar gambling. When it comes to any form of government crackdown against online gambling activities these days, it is almost always protectionistically motivated.
