Online gambling has become a behemoth of an industry. The massive appeal of classic casino games and exciting new video or themed slot games have people all over the world desiring a game of blackjack or a spin on the latest slot machines.
But it’s not just the real-money gaming that people come in their millions for. Casino games have always been sought out because they offer a fun time, so people in countries that have not legalised online gambling still go to free casino sites to wager in-game currency and play the games.
The legality of online gambling around the world is still unknown to many people who are hoping to play casino games, with some even questioning if it’s legal to play the games for in-game currency – thus not gambling with real money.
Where is casino gaming legal?
One of the world’s online gambling hotspots is Great Britain. Across Great Britain, millions of people play real money casino games on their computers, phones and tablets every day. Millions also use their devices to do some sports betting. Anyone over the age of 18 can play gambling games and gamble online with a site which has been issued a license by the Gambling Commission.
Across the world, in Oceania, two nations that are rather close in proximity host very different online gambling laws. Australia recently amended their law on gambling with the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016 to plug loopholes which formerly allowed for online gambling. The amendment bill means that offshore gambling operators cannot offer their services in Australia unless granted a license, of which no state or territory will allow.
Their close neighbours, New Zealand, have a much more relaxed stance on online gambling. It is not illegal for a person in New Zealand to play online casino games if that website is based overseas. This leaves the door open to a huge range of sports betting and casino gaming sites to be accessed at the click of a button.
Spin around to Nigeria, and it’s a rather different story. Online gambling in Nigeria is illegal. Organisations caught operating a gambling site in Nigeria can be prosecuted. The government is attempting to stop its citizens from playing online casino games. Luckily, free slot apps are legal in Nigeria and host all of the top online casino games that gambling sites do, so people in Nigeria can still indulge in some casino action with in-game money, just like they can do in much of the world, for instance in Canada or Germany.
Technology opening opportunities
Advancements in technology have allowed the creation of classic land-based casino games being made into free casino apps that now host more slot games than could previously be fathomed. Another key advancement has been the birth of live casino games, which stream live dealers while allowing players to play the game in real time.
Due to laws in each country needing to react to the revolution of online gambling, and doing so comparatively slowly, sites and operators have had to move around based on new regulations. Take the new regulations in Australia which ban online gambling operators, New Zealand’s TAB was forced out of the country and cut out from its player base. Luckily, thanks to the power of the internet and the advancements of technology, the operators were allowed to move.
However, players from New Zealand, who are allowed to play at TAB, could no longer access the online gambling site when in Australia. But, a loophole has been found. New Zealanders using mobile data on a roaming plan can continue to play online casino games when in Australia.
The internet has opened up so many new opportunities to the world, particularly when it comes to online gambling. While not everyone can enjoy online casino games for real money anywhere in the world, there are some great free apps that allow the play of the most popular games.
Relaxation Of CBD In NFL – An Insight
There has been a lot of buzz around CBD in recent years, especially in the health and wellness industry.
Many sports associations and players around the world have also recognized CBD as a pro sports
However, one of the most coveted associations- the National Football League, more popularly known as
the NBD had been quite strict in its ban of cannabis related products, including CBD. But in recent times,
there seems to be some good news in store both for eh players and every CBD shop as the association is
considering lifting the blanket ban and allowing players to use CBD, which has become popular for its
What Is CBD?
Before we proceed to understand the decision of the NFL, it is important to understand what CBD is and
how it is different from the other cannabis product. CBD or cannabidiol is one of the primary chemicals
found in the cannabis plant, the other being THC. However, contrary to common beliefs, CBD is not
psychoactive in nature. It does not cause the user to feel ‘high.’ This is because high quality CBD does
not contain even trace amounts of THC, which is responsible for these reactions.
In fact, many recent studies indicate that CBD is an excellent medicine to cure several physical and
mental conditions, including chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, and depression.
Why Do Sportspersons Recommend CBD Use?
If you are into sports and athletics, avoiding injuries is almost impossible. While painkillers may be
helpful in managing the pain, they have numerous side effects on the other organs of the body. That is
why many players and athletes are now in favor of using CBD to manage their pains and injuries.
Sourced from organically grown hemp, CBD helps in alleviating the pain without injuring any other
organs of the body. It is no wonder that players are in favor of using CBD in place of the synthetic drugs
that are available in the market.
CBD For Sleep
For your body to perform its best, it is important for it to be well-rested and rejuvenated. This can only
happen through sound sleep. For many players, who suffer from muscle cramps and injuries, getting
proper sleep becomes a challenge. CBD can be very helpful in those circumstances as well. By soothing
the nerves, CBD helps the body to fall asleep faster and also the quality sleep that it needs.
Good sleep can also help the body in replenishing its worn and torn tissues faster.
The Changes Anticipated In NFL
The NFL, which has one of the strictest policies regarding drug testing, is now considering changing its
policies, especially the ones that are related to CBD. The players who test positive for cannabis will not
be directly suspended from the team. Rather a fine will be imposed on them as per the number of times
that they test positive.
The threshold for testing has also been changed as the players now will only be tested during the first
two weeks of the training camp, in place of the April- August testing policy that was followed earlier.
These progressive changes seem to be a direct result of the changed perception that most people have
regarding CBD today.
It is also worthy to note here that CBD is legal in all the American states, with minor restrictions on the
amount and the concentration of the product. Players are the happiest with this new move as they are
of the opinion that CBD works much better and is far less addictive than the painkillers that are given on
prescription. Even the sports associations around the world are also likely to reconsider their policy on
CBD after this change.
