    What are the differences for gambling between the US and the UK?

    Odd question, but I got on the topic with a friend and it would seem that in terms of gambling, the UK has it way better. Is it true that you don't get taxed on winnings? I also heard the odds are better for higher payouts with online casinos. I don't know much about any of this. Someone in my family recently started playing at one of those internet cafe places and I think she has a wee bit of a problem... lol

    From what I heard, no, we're not taxed. Although it didn't really cross my mind when I won some bets. I guess that's a plus, but Britons get taxed through the nose for a lot of other things.

    Also, are internet cafés still around in developed countries? There were plenty of them over a decade ago but pretty much everyone has a connection and a computer nowadays.

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Internet cafes were never really a thing in America as far as i know, but they are thriving in Japan and I recall quite a few when I was in France a few years back.

    We had internet cafes in my area but they all closed down and the "casinos" took over. Places that were just touch screen slot machines weren't going to go far here. I think we can bet online now but I never tried it.
