Online gambling has been a contentious issue all over the world for many years now. Some countries took a stance of being against the presence of online gambling. However, with time they found that it was impossible to police, and that they were fighting a losing battle. They internet is awash with opportunities to gamble illegally online, and the governments of said countries eventually realised that they could not control the presence of online gambling within their borders. Most countries have since moved to allow legal online gambling.
