Why do we love games? There is no single answer to this question. First, everyone has their own reasons. Secondly, games can be different as well.

The gambling, for instance, gives you such adrenaline rush as no other game can give. This risk, these emotions cannot be compared to any other feelings in the world. Gambling gives many possibilities. For some, it is a way to escape from the boring reality, others dive into the world of casinos dreaming about the staggering multi-million prize.

Casinos have been attracting millions of Brits daily. With the Internet rushing into our lives, this number has increased in thousands of times. Remote gambling is gaining its popularity more and more with each year passing by. Just compare these facts: in 2006 only 7.2% of adults out of 8000 admitted that they had participated in some form of remote gambling. Four years later, in 2010, this number increased to 10.7%. We can only guess how high it is nowadays.

An online casino can offer you the limitless variety of games, slots, roulette games and so on. This industry has grown from simple inline copies of the regular slot machines to the whole community. It even holds tournaments of poker and other games online.

Yet, the British aren’t the only nation who adore casino. Germans also like to “spiel spielautomaten kostenlos auf” as they say – to play some games at and lots of other online casinos.

The football games between those two countries are much like gambling. All people are eager to find out the results and each time it’s like roulette – you never know the exact result till the very last moment.

The most famous moment in the history of the British and German football rivalry is the 1966 FIFA World Cup Finale. During the extra time English striker, Geoff Hurst hit the ball so that it had bounced from the underside of the crossbar down to the line. After that, it was cleared away by the West Germany defenders. While English fans had already started celebrating the goal, the rest wasn’t so enthusiastic. The referee Gottfried Dienst was not sure whether the goal could be counted in.

All in all, it was admitted as scored, Hurst had made another goal and the game ended with the score of 2:2. The English truly believe that it is the one and only right decision, while the German continue to claim that it was cheating. Nonetheless, nothing can change the result now. The scientists had performed dozens of investigations of all the possible evidence, but till now we don’t have a single conclusion.

This legendary game even led to the appearance of the special term ‘ghost goal’. It’s used when it is not clear whether the goal has crossed the goal line. Moreover, this further led to the significant improvement in the judging. The goal-line technology which uses special electronic devices to solve the issue of the goal line is now introduced to some of the major football competitions, such as FIFA World Cup, FIFA Club World Cup, and Premier League.

What are your thoughts? Was it a fair victory?

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
