Betting in sports results in some illegal activities like fixes, intentional injury etc. it results in addiction and false hopes. One of the problems in online gambling is that you have to wait for a long time for your cash to be transferred to your account. Moreover you have to disclose your identity, your phone number, address, credit card number etc. In online gambling. This could be sometimes misused.
