A Gambling Nation
Since time immemorial human beings have indulged in one form of gambling or another. While some have inducted gambling into their religion, others have tried to keep gambling at arm’s length, though with little success. The Greeks turned a famous Athletics event into a religious celebration, called the Olympics. Olympics in Greek times incorporated heavy betting on the performance of the athletes, and this betting was considered a form of ritual offerings to the Gods, and was therefore mandatory. Yet, many strictly religious countries have banned gambling all together. This banning of gambling was particularly a medieval phenomenon, when religious conservatism was at its peak. Totalitarian countries have always proscribed gambling, and forbidden their citizens to waste their time on it. Democracies on the other hand have generally accepted gambling and legalized it. Very large gambling establishments have thrived in these countries, and grown stronger by the day.
Ladbrokes for example in the U.K. have grown from a legalized Soccer gambling company into a worldwide phenomenon. Gambling of course is legalized in the United Kingdom. But surprisingly, the world’s largest democracy, The United States of America, has not legalized gambling, though some its states have. Similarly, South Korea does not accept gambling as legal, even though it has now become one the most powerful and affluent democracies in the world. But there is a catch here, and the South Koreans who love Gambling have taken full advantage of it. The Law in South Korea keeps both eyes shut as regards gambling, and neither the gambler nor the institution promoting it is ever prosecuted by the Law. Further, at the onset of Online Sports Gambling in South Korea, whose popularity have swept all other forms of gambling aside, no set of laws relating to online gambling have ever been passed. This allows a certain degree of freedom to online sports gambling here. Thus, 토토사이트 — Toto Sites have flourished in South Korea.
In Search Of Legality
Toto is the most well loved form of Sports gambling in South Korea, followed by Proto. Thousands of Toto sites have sprung up all over the country, and the penetration is in depth. Now that the smart phone is in every hand, courtesy some of the global telecom giants of South Korea like Samsung, Toto has spread to every phone screen here. While gambling turnover has therefore multiplied a hundred fold, the inherent dangers of illegality have come to the fore. To prevent customers from being cheated has become a major task and groups of ‘fair play’ 토토사이트 — Toto Sites have come together to create Toto rules to help avoid such misadventures. South Korea, a vibrant democracy, is waking up to the need for lawful gambling.
