Online gambling is booming and it’s no longer just the big guys who are making a killing.
There are some big players out there, and they are all investing in a game that is worth millions.
It’s a growing industry, and it has created a new breed of players that are playing a game with much more potential than most ever imagined.
But there are a lot of questions hanging over the industry right now.
Who is making the money?
What kind of players are investing?
How is the industry responding to the growing popularity of online poker?
All of this will be addressed in our next episode, when we look at the history of online gambling and the gambling addiction crisis.
And we’ll also talk to one of the top online poker players, Jason “KingofPoker” Martin, who will give his thoughts on what it’s like to play a game of online cash games in a new interview on the WSOP’s Poker Insider podcast.
In a new book, “Money Games: The Rise of Online Poker,” published by HarperCollins, the author, former poker player, poker analyst and author of the best-selling book “The Biggest Win: How Poker Changed the World,” tells the stories of some of the players who have gone on to make a fortune in online poker.
Martin says he has seen the growth of online gaming come about through three different routes: The first was from the online poker boom of the late 2000s.
“That was the golden era of the poker game,” he says.
“We had the great players, the great tournaments, the very successful tournaments.
And then, from the beginning, there were a lot more players who just wanted to be able to play and play for money.”
The second, he says, was the rise of the internet.
“There were a bunch of sites that were opening up, a lot, that were just like, ‘Hey, this is a way to get your money out of the casino and into your pocket.’
The internet was a huge thing, and the poker world was also going crazy, so they wanted to put it on the internet,” he recalls.
“They were willing to pay the players, but they were willing not to put up with all the stuff that was going on with the casinos and the players.”
The third, and perhaps most important, is the rise and popularity of gambling addiction.
In “Money Stories: The Journey From Poker to Online Poker” Martin traces the rise in online gambling from poker’s beginnings in 1998 to the present day, as well as the development of the modern online poker industry.
“There are a couple of things that are unique about the online gambling business, which is that it’s so much bigger than it’s ever been,” Martin says.
It is now bigger than any other type of casino.
“It’s like having the world’s largest casino, it’s just the internet that allows it to be bigger than ever.
That’s the thing that makes it so successful.”
Martin says the rise to prominence of online betting is not just a result of players being able to bet on their own game.
“For most people, they’re gambling on the web for the first time,” he explains.
“And so they’re not just going to gamble on the Internet for the purpose of being able [to bet].
That’s not how you do it.”
Martin adds that he’s seen a shift in the way the poker industry operates from the days of just online gambling where players could bet on the website.
“Now, they have to pay players.
And if they pay players, they can make money.
So you’ve got a huge amount of money coming out of this,” he said.
Martin said the industry is reacting to the gambling addict crisis with a new set of players, and he believes the industry will see a major growth over the next few years.
“The big players in the poker business have been investing in this, and these are the people that are making the biggest money in the industry.
But the people who are doing the most money have a lot to lose.
It may not be the people at the top of the pyramid, but it is the people in the bottom tier who are going to be losing out.
That will be a big thing, because there’s going to have to be a lot less competition from the bottom players,” he predicts.
“I think we’re going to see an explosion in the number of people who make a lot from online poker in the next year or two.”
Martin believes the next big growth will come from the younger players who are starting to get into online poker now.
“Because there are these young players that have started to play online, and there’s just so many people that have come through the online-poker boom, and now there’s so many other people who have joined them that are just going through the same thing,” he explained. “So you
