Online gambling...


Though itís not likely to be enforced, Washington State has made online gambling a felony.  Itís already illegal in almost every state in the United States but that fact doesnít seem to carry a lot of clout.


Online gambling has become a multi-million dollar industry and ranges from playing Bingo to wagering on horse racing.  Poker is one of the most popular form of online gambling.  It was publicized in 2003 when Chris Moneymaker plunked down $40 in an online poker room and went on to win that yearís $2.5 million World Series of Poker.  Since then online poker has grown at a phenomenal rate.


And why not?  If we want to wager money in our own homes, whatís the big deal?  Besides, itís a lot of fun and can turn a boring evening around.  Not to mention the incredible events we can become a part of by wagering online.  The Belmont Stakes, for example, is an enviable event to attend but for those of us who canít make it in person, we can become a part of the cyberspace crowd cheering for our favorite horse.


By placing an online wager, we can become a part of events all over the world that we otherwise wouldnít.  Sure we want to win, but itís also an event to attend even if it is in cyberspace.


Take the 2006 World Cup Soccer month-long event.  While thereís nothing like being there in person, for those of us who canít make it to Germany this year, we can participate through online gambling.  There are hundreds of different configurations to bet on, not only score or winner related but also the zany, for example betting whether or not someone will streak this year.


Online gambling makes us a part of the crowd even when weíre not in physical attendance at the most exciting events in the world.
