  3. In 1996, the first year of online gambling, approximately 17 million dollars were gambled. By 2000 this had increased to over 3 billion dollars. Now, researchers illustrates that more than one trillion dollars are wagered at online casinos.
  4. Almost every online casino buys their games software from only a handful of software providers like, Microgaming, Cryptlogic, Starnet, iCrystal and Boss.

  4. What is a fraudulent online casino behavior? Usually takes the form of delaying withdrawals in the logic of making the players to continue gambling until the casinos win the money back. In several rare cases, the casino's software cheated by producing non random dealings. But, if the online casino has a famous and verified software provider, this is less likely to happen. Many casino portals uphold a blacklist of these fraudulent online casinos.
  5. A recent research initiated by Virgin Money discovered the fact that British people gamble around 5 billion pounds a year on online casinos and that 93% of the asked people who had access to the internet sustained that they wagered at an online casino.
