 Problem Gambling – A Real Hurdle in the Path of Legal Online Gambling

Obsessive-compulsive gambling is something the majority of online gamblers will just shrug off, but it is indeed a real and serious problem, one that is among the hurdles that need to be overcome before online gambling can be legalized. Those who have experienced problem gambling will tell you that the problem is an intricate one, and it is extremely difficult to define and treat.

It all starts when you walk into the casino.
