Speed. Comfort. Convenience. These are just some of the benefits that the modern world of technology has brought us. Our lives have changed significantly with the increasing time we spend in the online world. Practically everything can be done online nowadays. Rather than heading to a shopping center, people prefer to shop online and have their items delivered right to their doorstep. Netflix has revolutionized the way we watch movies and series. You don’t need to head down to your local cinema theater to watch the latest blockbuster.
The same goes for casinos. You are spoiled for choice when searching for online casinos at the comfort of your own home, rather than traveling to your nearest brick and mortar casino, which could in fact be miles away. Here we are going to list just some of the many reasons why playing online is better.
#1 Play at Home
There are so many reasons why playing from home is the better choice. Where to start? Maybe the weather is terrible, or you are unwell, or perhaps you’re having one of those lazy days where you can’t be bothered to get yourself out of the house.
Being in the comfort of your abode has many other advantages. You don’t need to get all dressed up and plan your journey to the land-based casino. Which in turn means you are not going to need to spend any additional money traveling to and back from the location by car or by plane and experience all the headaches that go along with transport.
Besides the hassle and traveling expenses, you would naturally also need to consider food. These casinos would usually have restaurants, often with delicious choices at a buffet, a stone’s throw away from the resort. A stone’s throw is not far. But your fridge is still closer and definitely cheaper. If you’re feeling particularly frisky, you can even order take out online to deliver to your doorstep. The options are endless. Winner winner, homemade chicken dinner.
#2 Big Bonuses
One of the key differences between land-based and online casinos are the bonuses, like the welcome bonus. You may get some small perks from the casino like a free drink, but online casinos practically throw money at you.
The bonuses come in all shapes and sizes. You can usually get a neat sum with the welcome bonus. Sometimes it is a no deposit bonus and at others, you need to deposit up to a certain amount to receive double or even triple your deposit amount. If you are a slots fan, you can find a free spins bonus too.
However, as always, there is a catch and, as always, it is in the fine print. You need to read the terms and conditions to find out the wagering requirements. So even though everything is well and good when you sign up and claim the bonus, you need to bet a certain number of times from X15 to even X40 your total bonus money in order to be eligible to withdraw. You also need to look out for the games which contribute to the wagering requirement. Taking all this into consideration, it can be tedious, but still worth your while.
#4 Casino Games Galore
With the number of online casinos continuously growing and the number of players signing up and playing, it should come as no surprise that the software providers have developed so many different casino games and variations. You will find a large number of games at all the land-based ones, but it’s no match for the selection you would have online. There are hundreds of online slots games you can choose from, with different styles, themes and playing options. Today’s top software companies have produced a wonderful number of appealing slot machines where everyone can find their own favorite one. Table games have a more limited selection, but it’s much more than you’d find at land-based casinos. For players who actually enjoy the interaction, you could play one of the live dealer table games since there has been a growing trend for live casino.
Besides the variety in the games, you have other perks associated with gameplay. First and most importantly, you can play instantly and secondly, you don’t need to wait for a spot to be free at the roulette table or the blackjack table. Thirdly, you don’t need to deal with the tedious and loud crowds – like the overly excited individuals at the craps table. Playing online removes the interaction with people so you don’t need to go to a designated area for your nicotine fix and you don’t need to uncomfortably inhale second-hand smoke. When playing table games, you don’t need to awkwardly chat with the dealer or with other players at the table. Some online casinos do offer chatting options with other players, but it’s entirely up to you. The list goes on.
#5 Better Odds For You
The costs of maintaining an online casino are only a fraction of the costs to keep a land-based casino open. This is one of the major reasons why the house edge is lower when playing online casino games. The software providers use high quality graphics and smooth gameplay so you as a player can play with ease. Online casino games have a better percentage, such as slots which can have an RTP as high as 97% and this information is easy to find unlike in brick and mortar casinos. Essentially, this means that no matter how big or small your bankroll is, you can play for a longer period of time. Plus, since its all online, the game play speed is increased especially without the waiting around. Besides a lower house edge in the online games, you can play for as much money as you like. You can be a high roller, or a casual player – most games have a low minimum betting amount.
Besides the reasons above, there are many more which I’m sure you yourself can think of. Doing things online isn’t always the easiest or the most sociable option. But hey – everyone’s busy leading hectic lives. Who wouldn’t want to just kick back, crack open an “insert your drink here” and relax? All you need is your phone or your computer and you’re ready to have a load of fun from anywhere!
