The social costs of gambling addictions will eventually impact careers, physical and mental health issues, bankruptcy, divorce, crimes, and treatment. It is a disease, a very serious addiction.The gamblers will eventually rely on welfare or unemployment benefits, impacting the government, and the costs could reach several billions of dollars per year.
It’s just bad. Advertisements are even luring kids in to this terrible world. While some kids might be watching Peppa pig on YouTube, there might be a ‘Sportsbet or bet 365’ ad come on screen. This only leads kids wanting to do this because they thought Peppa pig might do it as well. It wrecks lives.
A long time ago when there was only two mums, mr Jenkins had to go to the toilet and then he fell and a stick landed in him then it turned into 12 penises and with those might weapons he made reproduction a mighty virus and then he shows da way
It is far too easy to become addicted when gambling online. There are no checks in place to check the vulnerability or mental health of those people taking part. The amount of money people can lose in a very short space of time is horrendous but at the time they are not aware of the consequences so often it is not until they have lost everything that they stop. Then the guilt and shame hits them. The promise that they will never do it again but sadly that promise never gets kept because it's all too easy to go back online and do it all again.
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.
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 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.
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!
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
If you want a healthy society then pls ban on it.
Majority of our youngs are involved in online casinos and are suffering depression, stress and anxiety. If we faill to stop /ban online casinos then i am pretty sure ,majority of our population will be depressive . If you love uk, pls ban on online casinos.
Government has to take serious action on it . Pls save our society.
We are missing an important issue that our kids, youngs, olds need our help. Online casinos are same like herion addicton. If there is a ban on herion addiction then why not banning on online casions. Online casions have destroyed our families . Pls ban on it as soon as possible .If you want healthy society.
When we were all kids and we got our hard earned money and we wanted to do stuff with our money but our parents said no we hated it, but now that we are 18 and or older we have freedom but some things that we want to do we still cant. The governments job is not to babysit us and tell us what we can and cannot to do with our hard earned money. I understand that you can get an addiction but that is our issue to handle not theirs.
My dad was getting stuff in walmart and he had to fight a lady with a fish for my new phone. It was all because of that lady's gambling addiction. If she didn't have one my dad wouldn't have gotten slapped by a bass or a rainbow trout. He smells now.
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?

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 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.
