It’s been interesting seeing the Online Gaming companies in the Isle of Man go from strength to strength. I was aware that there were a couple of companies operating a sportsbook in the Isle of Man; but I am pretty surprised, not only that they’re still around, but at the growth that they have experienced. The thing is that we are going through a recession, so a number of companies have grown smaller, or even succumbed to the bad times; but online sports betting seems to be on the rise, which is really bucking the trend.

I do know that there are also quite a large number of gaming companies located in Malta. I don’t really know all the details, but what it boils down to is that different countries offer incentives to companies to come, set up shop, employ members of the local workforce and pump money into the economy. It’s quite a good proposition, if you can avert attention from the moral pros and cons of online gaming. Still, an online sportsbook possibly is easier to justify as it’s not purely a game of chance. People following a sport can usually make an educated guess as to the outcome of an event. What do you think? Are you for or against?
