The gambling industry is at the mercy of regulators. There are countries that allow gambling. On the other hand, these countries that have pro-gambling stances can also change. If you will look at the UK today, things are changing in their gambling industry especially when it comes to online gambling. In 2005, then Prime Minister Tony Blair decided to support the gambling industry. It did wonders for the industry. However, these days, you can see a lot of gambling-related advertisement on television especially during prime time.
Now, things are changing in the UK. Many believe that the gambling industry is about to shrink considering the fact that those who can only bet a small amount have been targeted by regulators. The thing with gambling is that it can be addicting. You can easily become a gambler and even do crimes in order to sustain your habit.
