Did you know around 26% of the world’s population loves gambling? Approximately 4.2 billion people gamble at least once each year worldwide. Many people see gambling as an easy way to escape boredom, issues or problems and have some excitement or stimulation.

The conventional land-based casinos are fantastic, but many people seem to gamble more on this online casino today more than ever. That is because of the online convenience online gambling gives its users.

Now that you can gamble from any place, here are some interesting facts you will find intriguing about online gambling.

Cryptocurrency is taking shape in the industry.

As many people put it, cryptocurrency is becoming a favourite means of payment to conduct online businesses that may not be “100% legal.” That is not a judgement but simply a fact. With that in mind, there are several reasons why the cryptocurrency is vital for online gamblers legally.

Gamblers prefer cryptocurrency since it gives them anonymity and eliminates the robust monitoring systems in the gambling and financial industry. Today, some of the big gambling platforms accept bitcoin alongside other cryptocurrencies. However, if you do not know much about cryptocurrencies, you don’t have to worry, as these online gambling sites will not force you to use them to make payments. You can use the other methods of payment.

Biggest win ever

Many huge winnings have happened over the time since online gambling came into play. Since 1994 when online gambling opened its doors, billions of dollars have made rounds between the sites and players. However, one win outshines all the other victories ever recorded in online gambling.

A Finnish poker player had luck with the Mega Fortune online slot. The game has a stake of just $0.25 for every spin. The player raked $24 million from the game, but of course, you would think they stopped playing. Poker players never quit, and yes, he went on playing even after winning such a fortune.

The First online casino was in 1994

It is still hard to comprehend how casinos have been around for over 25 years. Microgaming created the first online gambling platform precisely 100 years after slot machines entered the casino industry.

Not fully digital

What comes to your mind when you think of online gambling platforms? You probably think of algorithms and related graphics that determine the loss or win of a game. Technically that is the case in most websites. However, some sites will have real-life dealers who spin the roulette wheel or lay down the cards. Is that even necessary? Do not judge yet.

Online casinos have to show transparency in their dealings with customers. Most of these sites that want to show that openness are aware it is pretty hard to discount the results, especially when there is an actual human involved. If you have never tried this online gambling site, try them out and feel the thrill of being in a real casino.

No counting cards in online blackjack

Every player already knows about counting cards, even the amateur ones. That is because they probably read about it in a book or saw a movie about it. However, the fact is, very few learn how to do it themselves. Counting cards is not hard to understand. It is also not illegal, but of course, you will have to leave the casino when caught doing it.

If you want to learn card counting, do not learn it online as it is not possible. Online platforms use random card selection techniques that do not factor in card counting in any way.

Tip Online Dealers

If you are of legal gambling age in the UK and want to engage in an online casino, it is good to tip as you engage the casino. No casino accepts underage players. Some casinos give their users the tip option and expect players to tip at the end of the session. Many people may not see the need to tip a computer since this is not a real casino they are interacting with.

Remember, these websites do not charge you a coin to sign up, and some will even pay you to sign up. It is only fair that you return the favour. If you lose, you don’t have to worry about the tip, but it is good to tip some extra coins to the platform if you win.


Today’s internet is full of free money offers, and gifts and people tend to think free things are scams, and no one will offer you free money. Luckily, with online gambling sites, the case is different. Take advantage of the free bonuses and other offers to maximize your winnings.

Parting Shot

Online gambling is huge in the gaming industry and will only grow bigger. More and more players engage these platforms as technology penetrates deeper and deeper in the grassroots.

The ever-expanding Veloce Esports ecosystem yields substantial monthly viewership figures in excess of 230 million across its various channels.

Codemasters is a world-leading video games developer specialising in the racing genre. Its portfolio includes DiRT, Project CARS, GRID, and the official series of F1® video games. The VERSUS ULTRA Series will feature an innovative event format with different stages of competition taking place across several Codemasters titles.

Some of the best-known global esports teams will be taking part, comprising world famous streamers, pro gamers, and more, with squads competing for the inaugural VERSUS ULTRA Cup.

The first team to throw its hat into the ring is Quadrant, F1 star Lando Norris’ ever-popular esports squad.

With the likes of F1 YouTube star Aarav Amin (Aarava), leading virtual racer Steve Alvarez Brown (Super GT), Maria Bish (RiaBish) and Niran Yesufu (FNG) on the books, Quadrant will undoubtedly be running at the sharp end during the inaugural season.

More information on the event format, team announcements and the VERSUS ULTRA CUP will be revealed in due course, with racing set to get underway in 2022.

Rupert Svendsen-Cook, CEO, Veloce Esports, commented:

We have worked closely with Codemasters for some time, as a large part of our media network features their titles, so it made a huge amount of sense to work together on this project.

“For us, the key focus is on entertainment for the gaming community and offering an original and engaging format that breaks the mould of the traditional racing esports leagues currently available. We’re incredibly excited to share further details regarding who and what is to come as we prepare to launch in 2022.”

This ever-evolving production line consolidates QTech Games’ comprehensive catalogue of slot titles on a platform that delivers a definitive one-stop-shop for worldwide operators, thanks to its unrivalled localised depth and authentic gaming-vertical spread.

The agreement also expands Pragmatic Play’s global footprint, opening up an array of both established and emerging markets for accelerated growth. QTech’s platform boasts the broadest gaming portfolio around, localised for each region, with native mobile apps, powerful reporting and marketing tools, and 24/7 local-language support.

The QTech Games platform is integrated with the best games from the planet’s top providers – and Pragmatic’s unique content sits near the summit of this mountain.

“In short, we can’t wait to see how these games perform across a patchwork quilt of territories. Especially in developing gaming spaces where demand for a localised product set is paramount in tackling the diverse backdrop of cultural trends and player preferences.

Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, added: QTech’s ever-expanding reach, from Asia and Eastern Europe to LatAm, is always eye-catching. Forming a strong partnership with a leader in the Asian market allows us to continue to expand our presence in the region by supplying operators with the compelling content for which we’re renowned.
