GAMBLING ONLINE, BEYOND THE CASINO
The history of gaming and betting goes beyond the land- based casino and many social games are accepting bets, in what is called social gaming monetization.
According to a report by Social Casino Metrics, profits from social gambling with enhanced money are expected to reach $1.6 million by the end of 2012 and $2.4 million in 2015.
The social games that are most similar to casinos are the ones that according to analysts have the best way to achieve great benefits, just as these types of games are also having a great acceptance in other television programs.

The current regulation of gambling will have to be adapted again for this type of services… this controversial sector always raises new and interesting unknowns that will be resolved with their rise.
