Online gambling is any type of gambling conducted online. This includes online casinos, live casinos and progressive slots. The first online gambling venue ever opened to the public, was ticketing at the famous Liechtenstein International Casino in October 1994. Since then there have been numerous sites which have offered an interface for gamblers to place their bets on online casinos and/or sports games. With the advent of various online gaming sites, there has been explosive growth in the number of people who are taking part in online gambling.
There are many US online gambling sites which are either fully regulated by the law or are operating within a regulated industry. Some US regulated sites include Blackjack Capital, Playtech Gaming, Poker Stars, Playtech Real Money Online, Ultimate Bet, Party Poker, Paradise Poker, PartyPoker, Party Slot and most importantly Ultimate Bet Network. These sites offer a safe, secure and reliable environment for online gamblers to place their bets. All the aforementioned sites are operated legally and all the information provided by the players is kept confidential.
The issue of identity theft is another major concern that is raised whenever we talk about online gambling. This issue is mainly addressed by the US based Party Gaming, which operates its own payment system and bank accounts. The information provided by players is encrypted and is protected from any third parties. Hence, security is the primary objective of Party Gaming. They also ensure that all players pay through secured payment systems and bank transfers.
