Advantages to online casino games

There are many reasons why online gambling simply makes more sense

Brick-and-mortar casino operators are scared. They will do anything to prevent online gambling from spreading, even fabricating excuses as to why virtual casinos are evil. Shelly Adelson of the Las Vegas Sands once tried to argue that online gambling was nothing more than a source of money laundering – despite the extensive amount of the fraudulent activity that has been seen in physical gambling houses. While they may try to keep online gambling from expanding, the opponents are losing the battle and will ultimately have to live with the fact that virtual gaming is here to stay. There are a number of reasons why it makes more sense to gamble online, as opposed to having to visit a casino.

In Sands, Caesars or any other physical casino, players are expected to give tips – tips to the waiters, tips to the dealers, tips to just about everyone. Play at home while lounging in a recliner means no tipping, no excess expenses. Additionally, online tables have lower limits because there are no employees that have to be maintained.

Most online gambling venues offer welcome bonuses, as well as additional deposit bonuses for various events. Sometimes, these bonuses can result in huge winnings if players play their cards right. While brick-and-mortar casinos may offer free food and drinks, none will give free money.

Online, everyone is a VIP. Privacy rules and the playing field is more level. There are no chatty neighbors to distract you from the game, no one to try and sneak a peek at your cards. In fact, you can listen to whatever music you want, wear whatever clothes you want, sit wherever you want – no one is around to stop you.

If you’re sitting around playing a little poker from the comfort of your own home and want to change games, new options are available just a click or two away. There is no need to pack up and look for an open seat at the other end of the casino.

Online gaming is cheaper and easier to purchase. There are a number of methods to fund accounts and many sites now even accept cryptocurrency as a form of payment – not so with physical casinos. No long forms, no having to sign over your history for the past 40 years. Sign up, make a deposit and begin to play – it all happens within a matter of minutes.

Physical casinos were a stepping stone to get us to where we are today. Just like everyone used to correspond with others through letters, the world evolved to use email. This is the same experience with online gaming, allowing more people to take advantage of their favorite hobby while not having to leave the comfort of their own home.
