We all love money, we all love to have enormous amount of money to fulfil our desires and needs. But if our pockets our limited that’s when other thoughts strike our mind and that's when we start to think about a shortcut, this shortcut can be called as 'Gambling'. The basic rule of gambling is that some day you lose money and someday you profit, its never 100% consistent. In this high tech world many teenagers play video games, now we all know that 'CS:GO' is played by mostly teenagers, and teenagers like money so sometimes they think of that shortcut because of limited pocket money and they gamble!
Now, gambling is very easy and a piece of cake these days all it takes is a one click and your money is deposited on the website in which you are about to gamble. the introduction of skins to Global Offensive was to encourage more players for the game by providing them free virtual items simply by playing the game which they could then use as part of the Steam Marketplace to trade with others, boosting the Marketplace's own economy. Global Offensive is not the first video game where players have traded, sold, or bought virtual in-game items, but the ease of accessing and transferring through the Steam Marketplace made it a successful virtual economy. However, with increased monetary values placed on some skins, the Steam Marketplace became infeasible. The player community for Global Offensive grew quickly following the addition of skins, further enabled by the growth of streaming services like Twitch. Valve promoted features into Global Offensive that made it favorable for professional play (eSports), including sponsoring its own tournament. Several teams arose from high-ranking players, creating viewing opportunities during tournaments; this was further enhanced by the ability for viewers to earn "spectator" skins simply by watching these matches. There are many ways of gambling for example, you can deposit your virtual skins of csgo on websites and gamble that skin, moreover you can also deposit keys which can be bought on steam community market and many more. Valve added random skin rewards as part of an update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in 2013, accepting that players would utilize these to exchange with different players and reinforce both the player network and its Steam Community. A portion of these locales in this manner included the capacity to bet the consequences of expert matches or in rounds of chance with these skins. Some of the websites created to help with trading of CS:GO skins started offering mechanisms for gambling with skins. These originated as sites that allowed players to use skins to bet on esport matches. Players would bet one or more skins from their Steam inventory, which are then moved to an account managed by the gambling site. Upon winning, the player would be given back their skins and a distribution of the skins that the losing players had offered. As this was going on other sites decided to expand this gambling into game of chance such as roulette, jackpot in which there was a pot where people deposited their skins and there was a timer set of 1 min for example, where anyone with the highest value of skin will have higher percentage of winning. Moreover coinflip was also introduced, some websites were based upon Case opening, the cases comprised of CS:GO skins but with the better odds, because while opening cases in csgo the odds of getting a golden or good item is very less, so sites used to earn by this game mode a lot and to be honest it was fun to watch but in the end its all gambling. In combination with the gambling features, players could then trade skins that they had won for their cash value through these sites, or purchase skins with currency to gamble further. Several factors led to concerns about the Global Offensive skins market and gambling. The skin gambling mechanisms work toward those predisposed to gambling because of the ready availability of, and ability to acquire, skins within the game, and can yield great rewards, This is particularly true for younger players, who constitute a substantial portion of the Global Offensive player base, and who may also be encouraged through peer pressure to obtain unique skins to show off to their friends. Skin gambling contributed greatly to the success of Global Offensive as an esport, but some argued that it needed to be regulated to avoid legal and ethical issues. Moreover many scams also used to happen for example many sites implying the auto bet option using browser extension, claiming to automatically bet for the user were actually malware designed to steal skins and coins. Csgo gambling sites play a vital role in attracting the users they design their website such that users are attracted and they are forced to gamble, for eg the case animations and the template of website is attractive and designed to attract the users, most people tend to gamble just by seeing the template and animations of a particular gambling site. The very famous game mode roulettes, it mostly comprises of green, black and red color but some websites who are smart and know how to attract the audience they usually use either animations replacing the common colors or any other picture which is cool to see and attracts many teenagers.
Moreover, csgo gambling websites want their audience to feel safe and not think that any of their game modes are biased or unfair they add a provably fair system, in which you can check the fairness of the roll which is to satisfy the users. Many gambling sites also promote their website by sponsoring youtubers and they hook them up with some amount of balance which is sometimes withdrawable depending on the terms and conditions which they have signed with that particular youtuber, now the youtuber gambles on that website and if he profits sometimes he withdraws it and sometimes if he doesn’t profits he still gets paid because its being sponsored, now the youtuber uploads that video in which he is gambling to his channel and gives a shoutout to that gambling website which have sponsored him, this helps to grow the audience of that website and is known as ''Marketing'', this strategy is very vital and common these days and csgo gambling websites have targeted many audience just by using this strategy.
