Gambling is a form of entertainment that has been around for a very long time. There are different types of gambling which include sports, casino, poker and lotteries.
The earliest known form of gambling was dice games which dates back to 3000 BC in Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians believed that their gods controlled the throws of the dice and so they gambled with them for money too.
Gambling became illegal in Great Britain when it was discovered to be a source of funds for organized crime groups during the early 1800s. In 1825, English Parliament made lotteries illegal because most gamblers were poor people who couldn’t afford to bet on horse races or anything else.
Gambling is expected to be one of the biggest industries in the future. It has been growing by 16% since last year.
