On the G4 you could run Windows through Virtual PC but it is slow and pricey. I also do not think it is supported anymore. The other option would be an Intel Mac with Windows through bootcamp or parallels.

You will need to find a company that uses a web based, java based or Mac OS supported gambling program. Though I would recommend against online gambling.

You can download game widgets

As to gambling sites, most of them
- if it's free, it's spyware or trojans
- if it's real gambling, they stacked odds so you lose money on average.
