Charitable Gambling Operations Struggling To Survive
Casino gambling contains so many fun games, that it does not matter whether a person is playing for real money or not. As long as they are having fun, casino gambling will continue to exist.
Charities saw that there was money to be raised by using gambling, so they started hosting their own casino nights. On these nights, a lot of money would be raised for the charities, thanks to Americas love affair with casinos.
These charities have fallen on tough times lately, however. Their casino nights have been hit hard by new laws in many states. The laws have put the charities in the position of having to find alternative ways of raising money.
Many states have adopted smoking laws where there is no smoking inside of public places. Some of the hardest hit by these smoking laws are the charities, who cannot allow people to smoke anymore while gambling.
The other law change that has hurt the charities is the actual gambling laws. States have expanded their gambling options and now have full casinos. This change is particularly damaging to the charities because people now have options where they can go gamble and win real money.
It used to be that charities were the only groups that were allowed to run casino type games, so people would flock to these events. Now, people have options to gamble in glamorous casinos, leaving the charities to find alternative ways of fundraising.
