Gambling has been a part of human life for thousands of years in cultures the world over. Chinese gambling goes back over 4,000 years. Cockfighting was a favored pastime in Greece about 2,500 years ago. State-sponsored lotteries in 15th- and 16th-century England helped raise funds for London's water supply, civil servant salaries, and even the colonization of the Americas. Betting, gaming, and trying one's luck have been pasttimes for millennia, and most of that was done in person until very recently.

The digital revolution has pushed the growth of online gambling, and COVID-19 has only accelerated that trend. As the world has adopted more and more technological advances, so, too, has online gambling embraced them.
