Images of Las Vegas or Atlantic City quickly come to mind when Americans think of gambling, but gambling occurs in many different forms. The lottery is very popular, but other examples include betting on dog races, horse races, and other sporting events. In recent years, new casinos built on Native American land have appeared in many states, making gambling more accessible. The rise of Internet gambling has made it possible for millions of people around the world to play games of chance without ever leaving their homes. Proponents of gambling argue that casinos and related businesses create jobs and generate state revenues, while opponents see gambling as a destructive habit that can lead to addiction.
