POC: David Nugent

Online gambling was established in the early 1990’s. Back then regulation of all types of gambling sites was unheard of, and every gambler had to take at face value each site they came across, and hope they chose that site wisely.

Credit cards and debit cards were the only way a deposit could be made into such sites back then, however as the industry blossomed more and more different banking options became available to players.

When a problem did arise between a gambling site and one of their customers, if it was not resolved by the gambling site operator, the only way that a player could get it resolved was by being very vocal on message boards and forums, in the hope the gambling site operator would be shamed into doing something about that complaint.

As the years ticked by however, many governments across the globe put into place a legal framework in regards to how they could license, regulate and of course tax gambling sites that offered their services to residents of that respective country.

Today, you are going to find that online gambling in general is just as highly regulated as the land based, brick and mortar gambling environments, and as such you will find you have a much greater sense of fair play and much more protection than you used to do.

However, not every country has embraced online gambling, and as such you will find several countries of the world have no legal framework what so ever in regards to the regulation of gambling related sites, and players from those countries do have to pick and choose where they gamble very carefully.

That is one of the main reasons I decided to set up this website. Throughout this site you are going to find information regarding which gambling sites of every description are licensed, the regulatory procedures they have to go through and just which gambling sites are of the quality demanded by today’s gamblers.

My Team of Writers

To help ensure Legal Betting Report is updated constantly and brings you the very latest news related to betting and gambling sites, I have commissioned a team of writers, who all specialise in different gaming environments.

New news stories are available each day and will always enlighten you on the very latest aspects of gambling, with a leaning towards regulatory or legal aspects of those operations.

As someone who may have an interest in gabling online, I would actively encourage you to make use of my country specific reports. As by doing so you will then discover the legal requirements and regulatory processes that each gambling site operator has to go through to ensure they can be licensed and regulated in each different country of the world.

Protecting Gamblers and Setting Gambling Limits

One of the main factors that did spur me on to develop and then launch this website, is that over the years I have seen many gamblers, from many different countries of the world being ripped off, cheated and even scammed by some unscrupulous gambling site operators.

Many first time online gamblers are like a lamb to the slaughter if they do not actively make a point of ensuring the gambling sites they sign up to and then gamble are at above board, licensed and run and operated to the very highest of standards.

Whist admittedly the number of dodgy gambling related sites and companies has been reducing in number over the last few years, thanks mainly to ongoing regulation, there are still some sites you will be best off steering very clear of.

As long as you make a point of discovering just which Gambling Commission or Licensing Authorities covers gambling sites based and operate din the country in which you reside, and then stick to gambling at those sites you are going to have the maximum protection and peace of mind.

One other aspect of gambling online that will become apparent when you do sign up to a licensed and regulated site is that you are going to be afforded with lots of built in gambling limit options on your account.

As such when you initially log into any type of gambling site account you will be prompted to set yourself some limits in regards to how much you are prepared to deposit, the amount of time you wish to gamble online and will also be able to select a loss limit too.

By making use of those self imposed gambling limit option settings out are never going to put yourself in a position where you may get carried away and end up gambling and losing more money that you have intended to do.

Staying on control and ensuring everyone has a fully rounded and enjoyable gaming experience is of course a two way street and as such each gambling site that does adhere to player protection will offer you those option settings, and as one of their customer you do need to ensure you make use of them to help you gamble responsibly.
