With hot spots like Las Vegas and Atlantic City growing in popularity one can only assume that gambling is increasing in today’s society. Gambling has grown from just the simple lottery play to new forms of gambling, including online poker, where the participant does not even have to leave his house. Participants can also place sports bets online with an increasing ease. Televised gambling events have made a big hit, ESPN now plays these poker tournaments where millions are wagered and this attracts the attention of many viewers.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
