If you want to experience the fun and excitement, then cockfighting is a great choice. The best part about cockfighting is that you never really know when and where you will get the chance to engage in the cockfight. But for some people, cockfighting has become a gambling venture where they not only bet on the outcome of the cockfight, they also put a lot of money on the bets and hope that they win.
Although cockfighting is not illegal in most countries, it is still against the law to gamble or to be involved in betting transactions with cockfighting. Gambling and cockfighting are very similar, except for the fact that in cockfighting, there is no limit to how much money you can place on one fight. You can easily enjoy the thrill and excitement of cockfighting without worrying about the laws. However, with modern technology, you too can easily enjoy the fun and excitement of cockfighting from the comfort of your home.
There are two major problems with the local government’s inaction on cockfighting. One problem is that the Philippine government has not been successful in stopping the proliferation of websites that promote cockfighting and offer facilities for cockfights. Many of these cockfighting sites are run by Travellers who make money from the fights and travel expenses. The other problem is the lack of enforcement of existing laws that are intended to control cockfighting. The problem is that most of these cockfighting organizations do not abide by the law and simply claim to be operators of cockfighting when in fact they are simply organizers of illegal gambling activities.
Since cockfighting is illegal in the Philippines, the only solution available for the government to end the cockfighting trend is to regulate it through the use of a national gambling commission. Unfortunately this solution has failed. Instead of a national gambling commission, the only thing that the authorities have been able to do recently is to impose a form of penalty on people caught participating in cockfighting matches. Penalties range from a hundred thousand dollars to a few hundred. The problem is that the penalty is not a deterrent enough, and some even resort to violence in order to get what they want. The authorities state that the purpose of these laws is to protect women and children in rural areas from organized crime that often attacks women and children during certain times of the year, such as when girls are going to get married.
The problem with the Philippines as far as cockfighting goes is that the authorities have not been effective in putting a stop to it. Instead of putting a stop to it the best they have done is turn a blind eye, hoping that cockfighting will just naturally disappear in the next few years. This approach has not worked however; many people still participate in cockfighting, and cockfighting is still a grey area as a sports betting topic. As e-sabong betting or “online sabong” betting enters the scene more players will be attracted to it and the grey area will be erased, making cockfighting a legitimate sports betting topic again.
