Online casino

  1. Dec 21, 2003 #1
    Has anyone ever used an online casino? Is it legal for people to use an online casino if they are not 21 years old? I would think that there must be legal issues if someone wins a lot of money at an online casino. Anyone know?

    I use to work for an online gambling company. Some places it is illegal to do it. Like here in Canada, we are not aloud to even sign up for an account. Well most of them. I think you have to be over 18, but it probably depends on where you live. You shouldn't waste money on those things anyways. Thats my opinion.

    I did a few times and trust me its a gip. Its some cheezy scan to take money from poor people.

    I agree, it would seem like a really cheap a unfun way to gamble. I mean sitting on your computer and clicking your mouse? No way, it's gotta be in las vegas with a few drinks feeling the cards in my hands while being distracted by all the lights and sounds!

    Plus you can't get a feel for your players skill or read their faces in card games. Its just not an authentic way of having fun or gambling.

    I always thought the odds are much worse using Online casinos.
    And I've never heard a single news of somebody hitting it big in an Online casino.

    My friends all started playing this free online poker game a few weeks ago, I played for about 2 or 3 days before it got boring, www.pacificpoker.com has free texas hold'm and other poker games if anyone's looking to kill some time.
