Speaking Of Gambling Or Gaming... What's The Difference?
There is no difference between "gaming" and "gambling."
- The gambling industry decided to change the name of their industry from "gambling" to "gaming" in order to make it sound harmless and fun.
- The name change is a good example of smart marketing by the gambling industry.
Everybody talks about "betting." What, exactly, is a "bet?"
Generally when you bet, you are saying you know the right answer.
- "I'll bet he'll be late to school today."
- "I'll bet I can beat you to the end of the street."
- "I'll bet you'll pull the Ace from the deck of cards."
