The gaming industry has brought a lot of different things from the world such as hospitality, and hope to those who have lost almost everything. Among the game of things brought is money for government and career opportunities to the unemployed.
Although playing is seen as something wrong, it is undeniable that the game has brought all those mentioned above.
Since the legalization of gambling, casinos and gambling operators have given back to nations and cities in the form of charity jobs, and of course, taxes. In some places, even, the gambling industry is considered to be one of the main contributors to its national revenue.
But taxes and charity jobs are not the only advantages of the game.
When you put up a gambling house, you will need the services of architects, engineers, and carpenters. Once the construction is finished, you will then need to hire employees to serve gambling clients. You will need distributors, receptionists, and security personnel among many others. Thus, more gambling houses mean more career opportunities.
Now, another form of play has come to our world, and that is the Internet that plays. The laws regarding the Internet playing are not that presented clearly, even so far. There are even places where online gambling is still illegal.
If the game brings in taxes and jobs, then you may think that there should be no more question on whether to legalize the internet playing or not. Does it seem logical to legalize the Internet game, after all, to more game equals more money for everyone, right?
I’m afraid that is not always easy. Many employees of gambling houses are afraid of losing their jobs once the Internet that prevails is prevalent. This is because computer programs will take their place as distributors, receptionists and others. The work of the human being has little place in the world of the Internet that plays.
That is why there is a great shout that comes from the gaming industry employees not legalizing the Internet gambling. You could not blame them, because it is highly likely these employees will lose their primary source of income Internet gambling once dominates the field.
What the authorities need to do is come up with laws that would benefit all the parties involved – the gaming operators and the employees. They have to come up with something that is just to everyone. It would be a hard thing to do, but they are left with no other option, unless they want to put people on the streets.
