With the internet online gambling was sure to spread faster than one would assume many industries could. In many ways you would be right to think so, even in this time when they are trying to ban online gambling. Instead of causing people to not participate, they are instead flocking to it in droves, once again proving that the government does not have their fingers on the pulse of the people.
As live dealer casinos grew, the different things you could bet on grew as well. Now there are online slots, video poker, roulette, etc., pretty much anything you can think of. With online gambling being literally just a click away, how could you not expect it to grow tremendously over the past few years.
Now sports betting is getting into the online gambling world as well. Many don�t think of using online gambling when trying to bet on their favorite sport, but with the advent of the internet sports betting has never been easier. Trying to figure out who is going to win a certain sport is older than the days are long, but it can also be quite lucrative when it comes down to it.
Sports betting is illegal in the US except in Nevada casinos, but it is perfectly legal across Europe. Depending on the sport, you can either simply bet who will win, or sometimes you can get into by how many points, or who will make the most or least points, etc. There are many additional aspects to the online gambling of sports booking, but it can be quite lucrative if you know what you are doing.
The online gambling site that Virgin Games has set up has been temporarily closed according to a notice on their web site this week. The site is ‘revamping’ to a ‘new and improved’ site that consumers will undoubtedly find better than before.
The online gambling giant surprised many who enjoyed the site, and did not have an inkling that they would be closing it down for awhile. The site, Virgin Bets, had a notice posted on their site thanking their clients for their patronage and that the site would be shut down short term. They continued on to say that they would let their clients know when it was ready to start getting bets again and that they were improving what they had.
They also gave an email address for those that have accounts with the company just so their clients could get a hold of them in the interim. They recommend visiting one of their sister sites, such as virgingames.com in the interim for all of their online gambling needs. Then conclude with a thank you and ‘see you again soon.’
The site was just launched last May and some are wondering if Virgin has found a niche that they can’t get into just yet. Their main online gambling site is very popular, but experts say that they may have spread themselves too thin by taking on the sports betting site as well.
They said that they were looking to get into the sports betting service to get those that might be interested in a new kind of novelty but it seems that there just aren’t enough people looking for that or at least not in its present form.
The company says that they are trying to be as simple as possible with their Virgin Bets site, and that they are looking to cater to those that don’t normally participate in online gambling. Those people that like the online slots, etc. probably will not take to their site.
