  • A physical loss or addition

    For some people, gambling ( especially with money ) makes them see the world differently, therefore having problems with the society. They see the world as a place where you needed luck and money to survive and they get addicted. Getting addicted isn't a good thing. It'll be a loss for both money and mental health. This opinion came from a 12-year-old girl, but I shall say that online gambling must be banned no matter what.
    I know that companies that support online gambling will protest, or howl in outrage. People nowadays are more desperate for money than it was in the past. I mean, everyone is desperate for money, but doing so shouldn't be ruining someone's life. What'll the society do to you if you've done something that's completely unbearable to see? Treat others the way you wanted to be treated.

  • The government needs to take responsibility and ban online gambling

    In the USA and many other countries online gambling has been eradicated, successfully banned and it has been made illegal. But not the UK government, they are more concerned with the revenue they receive from online and high street gambling than in the welfare of the men, women and children that are addicted to this form of so called recreation. There are hundreds of thousands of people that are drowning in debt and mental health issues brought about by addictive gambling, particularly on line casinos and bingo sites as it is all too easy to get hooked without even leaving your home. Gambling addiction is no different from drug or alcohol addiction so why doesn't the government step in and do something about it? Because they get money and lots of it from the casino and betting industry; off the backs of these poor addicts that's why....They should be ashamed of themselves.

  • Sports betting degenerate

    Sports betting needs to be banned and illegal there needs to be consequences for betting because it ruins families and marriages. There's is no where in gambling to where it has not ruined relationships, gambling is from the devil. The devil uses it to ruin relationship. It's ruined me and my family.

  • It's almost not real

    When I first met my partner he told me has an online gambling addiction. He is receiving treatment at present and it's something we talk extensively about. He says if he physically went into a casino there is no way he'd gamble the amounts he does online but whilst online it almost doesn't seem real as it's just a few clicks. Also, it's almost self medicating/self harm/escapism. He was once a social butterfly but when I met him almost a hermit, either sat up all night trying to regain the copious amounts of money he'd lost or to skint to go out and socialise. He was/is depressed,stressed,drowning in guilt and shame and
    up to his eyeballs in debt. It has had a huge impact on his confidence and self esteem.
    Like any addiction he can't just stop and it's too easy to just 'have a quick look' if they didn't excist it would make stopping a hell of a lot easier. I also think online gamblers have a different need they're trying to fulfill than gamblers that go to casinos. Either way, it is so destructive and ruins,relationships and lives it's disgusting that these sites excise, it's daylight robbery!

  • Gambling Ruins Lives

    By allowing individuals to gamble online you risk the chance of younger generations(21 and older) becoming able to throw their entire savings, and lifestyle away by simply letting them have the luxury of blowing $500 and more at home instead of personally limiting themselves if they went to a night out at their local or distant casino. The accessibility of gambling online starts habits and addictions from a young age that will last a lifetime. This is only 1 of many reasons why online gambling should be banned

  • Exploits the vulnerable

    Gambling online is too easy,there are not enough safety checks to prevent vulnerable people especially those aged 18 -25, when choices maybe impaired and those with mental health issues. Yes it is a choice but not everyone has the mental ability to make safe choices . Also the amount one can gamble is not limited ,which as we know can have devastating results Choice is when the person understands fully the outcome of making it,not everybody understands that and with online gambling ,the person is isolated ,has only to sign up have access to funds click they are over 18 and off they go ..No checks,no safety . The advent of online gambling and tv advertising has led to a 60% increase in gambling and debt in the 18-30 year old age range, and with it suicide and mental health issues. Gambling should be kept for casinos, have a higher age restriction and better limits on how much can be gambled. It's too easy ,and the effects can be devastating.

  • Because it does no good for people.

    It allows people to lose their money more easily as it happens more rapidly and it only takes a couple of clicks, to lose a lot of money. It's easier to comit fraud as someone good easliy be underage and be using their parents credit card. It's also easier to be kept a secert as a teenager could easily go to their room and pretend to be doing their homework when in fact they are gambling, therefroe their family couldn't help seek out help for them.

  • Government can’t enforce an online gambling ban- they can only stop domestic companies, even if they block international sites there is ways around it

    Governments can’t physically enforce a ban on the world wide web they can only enforce a ban on internet companies, they cannot stop their citizens from gambling on a overseas site or from people creating different online gambling. Also this doesn’t stop gambling all together people can still gamble in casinos instead of online. Gambling can’t actually be stopped and it can’t be enforced. There is always a way a loop hole on the internet to download something. To prove this is possible there are still big problems with piracy, such as movies, TV shows, games and music. A global piracy study was taken in 2010 showing that 95% of music from online was downloaded illegally and that 2/3 of torrents online are illegal. This statistics show that you can ban something but that doesn’t stop it from happening meaning this will just happen with online gambling. Remember if the United States have an economic loss of $12.5 million just due to the piracy of music what will happen to our economy if 70% of our nation gamble in one way or another?

  • Raise Taxes With It

    Online gambling shouldn't be banned because federal, state and local governments can tax the heck out of it and make some revenue from the proceeds. Tax incentives are what fuel brick-and-mortar casinos, so the same can be done with online gambling. Offshore tax havens can be taxed by having the taxes originate from the country where the client is, not where the casino is based. Any "sin taxes" can help--if someone can afford to gamble, they should be able to pay a couple of percent in taxes to have the right to do so.

  • Gambling is a choice.

    Gambling should not be banned. It is a choice. It may be a stupid choice but it is still a choice that one should be allowed to make. If I want to spend my college tuition on gambling instead of going to school I should be allowed. If I choose to gamble instead of making my house payment I am the one who is going to suffer the consequences. Nobody else is going to suffer. Why should anyone else be concerned with my gambling habits. It is none of their business.
