Are the Gambling Applications on iPhone dangerous?
Posted on April 27, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
If you ask the Australian politician Senator Nick Xenophone the answer is yes. The Senator believes that gambling applications such as slots, poker or casino games that anyone can download for free in his/her iPhone are extremely dangerous as they can fuel the gambling addiction.
The reality is that the Senator is absolutely right as parents do not have the power to control their children applications on high tech phones and as a result the children are free to play gambling games without any restrictions at all. This, according to Senator, will have as a result the children to be eager to try casino games as soon as they turn up 18. The Senator stated that his next course of action is to raise the issue to the Parliament in order to hold an enquiry on the federal government.
The Senator also stated that there aren’t almost any differences between the iPhone gambling application and on those in the real world as the functionality, the payouts, the sounds and the graphics are identical. The only difference is the option to play with real or fake money but as you all know the switch is activated by a single click.
He recommended to change the suggested age of all the gambling related applications to age 18+ as currently some of them have as suggested age the 12 years or none at all.
The author agrees totally with the Senator points as it is absolutely right to create protection measures against many issues – not only gambling – in order to protect those who are not in position to separate right or wrong or the pleasure from addiction.
Playing casino games is a great game of entertainment as long as at the end of the game you have a smile on your face no matter if you lose or win. Most adults consider casino games, poker events, and bingo or lottery tickets as a form of entertainment and this is the right way to approach such issues.
