Online gambling was started in 1994 when Antigua and Barbuda applied for license for betting online and playing. Casino Inc was then launched in 1995 which completely changed the face of gambling. All these events resulted in popularizing the gambling experience and exposed its pros and cons to everyone too. While it was good to bet online, the addiction factor crept online too. Gamblers followed what they were best at doing and got addicted to the internet too. However, the current popularity that gambling has is all because of the internet.
