Although gambling and casino-esque buildings go as far back as ancient UAE, online casinos are a relatively new phenomenon. With the advent of the Internet, people quickly saw the potential for large scale gambling and betting. So, a few websites popped up here and there. People quickly realised that it is really fun and safe to start gambling with like-minded people from all over the world. So, it wasn’t only casinos that started getting popular, but sports betting and even betting on political events and the state of the economy. If there was something people liked speculating about, there were sites you could use to gamble.
As these sites became more popular and more profitable, a lot of ‘bad actors’ saw an opportunity to make a quick buck off of scamming people. And as the whole scene was in its infancy, no trustworthy meta-websites and institutions were regulating the space. That’s how a lot of spam websites found it easy to trick people and scam them out of their money by using fake online casinos. Thankfully, however, with time, people got better in creating a safer online space. That’s why gamblers created institutions that could test online casinos and ensure safety for players. Ever since, the online casino space has grown and become more enjoyable and exciting.
