Parents Guide to Online Gaming
by GrandMatrix Team
The internet touches every aspect of your childrens
lives. Where you might look up an unknown word in
a dictionary, your kids are more likely to use dictionary.com.
Where you use the telephone, they use instant messenger.
An even greater difference can be found in how they
play games. Where the games of their parents
generation may have involved a board, cards, or
at their most sophisticated a console system, the
games your children play on the net can be far more
complex. They mine gold, spread empires, fight dragons
and aliens alone or with tens, hundreds, even thousands
of their fellow gamers. All of this makes for a
confusing mish mash of names, places, jargon and
lingo that can leave you with no idea what your
kids are actually doing and a vague feeling of uneasiness
that some part of it might not be good for them.
A Profile of the Online
by Rob Jay
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 19, 2004 - A PROFILE
OF THE ONLINE GAMBLER By Robert Jay - Online gambling
on sports in America has surpassed the total handle
of Las Vegas casino-based sports books.
A December, 2002 Congressional Report by the US
General Accounting Office stated that online gaming
reached new heights in 2002 as worldwide revenues
topped $4 billion. Of that amount, over $2 billion
was wagered by US residents. Bear Stearns backed
up these findings by estimating the worldwide market
would have been in excess of $5 billion had many
American credit card providers not discontinued
offering transfers to offshore sports books. Meanwhile,
the Nevada handle on sports books was less than
$2 billion in 2002; this is the first time in a
decade that the Nevada handle dropped below $2 billion.
