The emergence of onlnie gambling has been a significant challenge to both public policy and law. Attempts to ban online gambling have met with limited success and have been subjected to constitutional attacks based on the Commerce Clause, First Amendment protection for crime-facilitating speech, and due process considerations. The commercial nature of the activity and mercurial tides of public and political opinion make it difficult to formulate legislative responses. Research and regulation will need to continue to evolve as this mode of access becomes a more prevalent feature of the Internet.
When a person gambles on the Internet, he or she must sign up and create an account by entering some personal details and making a deposit (if gambling for real money). Once the account is created, the player can then choose the games they wish to play.
