Place Your Bets Ladies and Gents

As we all know people like to take a little "flutter" on sporting events, the Olympics 2004 provides the whole world a stupefying opportunity to indulge in a betting fest.

In some senses, it can be argued that this betting frenzy offers a rare opportunity for people around the world to be unified in a common cause namely; trying to make money from the effort of others.

I understand that many gaming firms are getting ready for an explosion of online betting trade during the Olympics.

The pace of change in technology means that people around the world can now place a bet via their TV, mobile phone, internet or betting shop.

I suspect though, that at the end of the day, it will be the "bookies" who make the most money rather than the "punters".
