Before the rise of the internet (and the emergence of the National Lottery), betting and gambling in the UK was somewhat limited. You could either join the men-folk down at the local betting shop, the ladies at the nearest bingo hall or stay at home and study the Football Pools. Thankfully, the modern world provides us with a wealth of gambling opportunities which we don’t even have to leave our homes to indulge in.
In days gone by, the only way to play bingo was to get the bus in to town and queue up at your local bingo hall to play a few cards with a couple of lager-shandies. Oh, how times have changed. Online bingo is now available 24/7 and is a very sociable as well as fun way to win cash. There is always a game going on, so even if you only have a short time to spare you can quickly log-on a try your luck.
Outside of the larger towns and cities, casinos were always a little hard to come by. They were seen as slightly decadent places that you only really got to see when watching James Bond wipe the floor with his latest nemesis at Chemin-de-fer. Internet casinos have changed all that. Now anyone over the age of 18 can have access to classic casino games like poker, roulette and blackjack as well as other games like slots.
