Sports gambling has become more of a social norm in society today than in years past; this has paved the way for easy access for people to gamble. Advances in technology have also allowed ease of access to gambling. Internet gambling has promoted habitual gambling and has led people to form addictions. In addition to the effect gambling has on people, it also has affected the competitions being bet on and the behaviors of fans as well as others around those particular fans. Gambling is involved in nearly every aspect of sports, professional or amateur, legal or illegal, through the nature of competition. Fantasy sports have changed the way people look at gambling and has garnered it a new identity. Fantasy sports start with young people which helps gambling agencies draw in participants and keep them long-term.
