Online Gambling is a type of gambling that takes place over the Internet. It has become popular as a form of entertainment and is regulated by many state laws. Gambling online can be done in a variety of ways, including using credit cards or other forms of electronic payment. However, it is important to understand the risks of gambling online and always bet only with money that you can afford to lose.
In addition, it is important to monitor gambling-related account activity regularly and to report unauthorized transactions immediately to the gambling site. Many online gambling sites offer additional security features, such as two-factor authentication and strong passwords, which can help reduce the risk of unauthorized gambling transactions. It is also important to note that some card issuers do not allow gambling as an acceptable purchase, so gamblers should check the frequently asked questions section of their card provider’s website before making a deposit.
Keeping children and young people safe online is one of the biggest challenges we face today. The use of online gambling can be a cause for concern as it could encourage them to gamble excessively. We want to provide parents and carers with the information they need about online gambling, its risks, and how to respond if they suspect their child or young person is using gambling sites. The webinar is presented by broadcaster and online safety advocate Myleene Klass and has been developed in collaboration with Heather Cardwell, a practising online safety lead who is CE-OP trained.
