Gambling and Law
These are the enemies forever – majority of countries legally prohibit gambling
or at least don’t appreciate much. Laws are the main instrument against gambling – they restrict its placement, its
payouts or simply – the police come, confiscate the machines and destroy them fiendishly somewhere in the
Really, how can gambling and law be friends, when the first one takes the
lion’s share of the people’s income which could be spent on the goods – and thus bring taxes to the state? They
can’t. Of course, gambling brings money to state itself – through the taxes and dues – but the sum can’t be even
compared to the amount that is spent by the players on the games. Additionally, it often leads to the addiction.

friends for money to gamble. This is not legal, of course – and the reason will be only gambling. So, the law is
obliged to fight against gambling business.
