Abstract

During the past hundred years gaming has become increasingly accessible to the general public. Gaming has progressed from being illegal, to being legal in remote locations (c.f. Las Vegas), to being legal in the urban casino, the local pub, etc. In all cases the presiding regulatory authority has had the power to control all forms of gambling in their jurisdiction. Now, Internet gaming brings gambling off the street and into your lounge-room…your office. Do Regulator’s still have control? Does anyone?
