Online Casinos in Korea Enjoy Popularity with new games to bet on for Koreans

Online casinos have enjoyed unbelievable growth on the Internet in recent years, and this explosive expansion has come with much scrutiny and has created quite the crowded marketplace. But the current state of online casinos is healthy and ripe with new developments and news. The online casinos industry is always exciting. Many new countries and cultures are now moving towards online casinos that previously had never seen online casinos as major business or internet staples.

Many websites now cater to betting, and the poker craze that has hit online casinos shows no signs of slowing down and online casinos see great signs continuing.

Despite the good news for online casinos, and the increased profits and buzz, new debates over the legality of online casinos and the morality of Internet gambling are underway. The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill that would curb Internet gambling and severely cripple the online casinos and the means by which consumers deposit and withdraw their money in the over $12 Billion dollar a year industry.

Gambling is largely illegal in South Korea but there is nothing to worry about if the bets are made with cyber money. The only restriction in entering online casinos is that you have to be over 19 years old.
What is the most popular sport in South Korea? Football could be an answer if the term ``sports'' is limited to physical activities, but many wags like to say that go-stop is the true national sport of Korea.
Go-stop is a variation of hwatu, a flower card game known as Hanafuda in Japan. It has unmatched popularity among various types of gamblers in Korea regardless of gender and age and whether played on- or off-line.
Every online casinos portal in South Korea offers a go-stop game. Traditionally, the game is played by three or four people but most online casinoshave adopted a two-people rule called matko.
In ``Sin Matko,'' the most popular online casinos go-stop game, players win a game when they earn more than seven points,. When players run out of money, 100,000 won will be automatically replenished every ten minutes.
Most casual games played on portals in Korea have five-card draw or seven-card stud poker games. These western card games are becoming increasingly popular but they are still falling short of the popularity of go-stop games
The most popular poker game is Hangame's ``Seven Poker,'' where up to five gamblers play, with the winner dealing the cards.
The biggest difference between real-world poker and online poker is that most players do not take more than one second when making their bet, or deciding to fold. The starting bet is 3 won for each player but the table money easily goes up to 100 million won within a matter of seconds. Players also get bonus points when they complete a rare set, such as a flush or four of a kind.
