Did you ever think about increasing your monthly revenue? Sure you have. Well, some people are doing it online, and they’re doing it the old fashioned way: by gambling. The online casino business is thriving, and part of it is because of people who are using it as a way to make a little extra cash. The internet is full of self-help books and so-called gambling experts who’ll teach you sure fire ways of winning every pot.
Poker is becoming increasingly popular too, and it’s also because of the boom of online gambling. The Poker Tour has never had the kind of ratings it’s having now. Actually, a couple of years ago you’d be hard press to find a poker broadcast that wasn’t a major event, and even that was invariably pay per view. But now, it’s everywhere. All sports networks have realized that there’s money in poker, and sponsors have followed suit. After all, there’s a lot of drama in poker, the risk and the challenge, as well as success stories that are worthy of Hollywood, like wonder kids taking it to the big boys, slumdogs becoming millionaires, you name it.
It’s not surprising, then, that there’s even a poker reality show. It’s like Survivor, Texas Hold’em edition. You play to stay on the Island, you get booted if you lose big and somewhere in the prize there’s a ticket to a World Series of Poker tournament somewhere. It’s definitely a reality show I’d watch.
