Lottery Player
You fell out with your work syndicate and can’t be bothered to stop off and get a ticket on the way home so you found the easiest way was online. The thing to be cautious of here is that, when you can’t see the money you spend, it’s easier to get rid of it. The temptation is there to buy five tickets instead of one, and that might not be the best option for your pocket… unless you win, of course.

You might even remember back to the famous Pakistan cricket spot-fixing scandal, which involved several members of Pakistan’s national cricket team. Those involved were caught and convicted of accepting bribes from bookmakers in 2010.

Some of the world’s most popular sports, including Football, Cricket, Cycling, Snooker, Horse Racing, Athletics, Tennis and Boxing have at some point been in the spotlight for some kind of match fixing claims.

Fast forward almost 40 years to the mid/late 90’s, to the age of the internet and all of a sudden there was a boom in websites which started taking online wagers at venues such as online casinos, sports betting sites, bingo sites and poker sites.
