Back in the early nineties before casinos came online, I used to visit my local casino in the city about two or three times a week to play roulette. Now, I don’t go at all. I now play all my casino games online in the comfort of my own home.
Since the introduction of online casinos in the mid-nineties, the growth and popularity has rocketed and will continue to grow due to the large internet population explosion. New casinos are appearing online almost on a weekly basis.
Compared to the traditional city casinos, the online casinos have many advantages, so lets look at some of them:
Any Time, Anywhere.
As long as you have access to a computer you can play online casino games 24hrs a day, it doesn’t matter where you are or where you live. If you happen to own a portable lap top computer you can play any game you choose while on the move, no longer are you restricted to set hours or locations.
No Need To Dress Up.
The traditional casinos usually have a stuffy dress code. In other words you need to wear the correct clothing outlined by the casino, and if your not dressed to their liking then you will not be allowed in. Not so with using the online casinos, you can even play in the nude you want, or maybe you just want to sit in you underwear!
The Weather’s Not A Problem.
With the online casinos you don’t have to venture out anywhere, just make yourself comfortable and log on to an online casino, pour yourself a drink, and start playing.
No Travel Required.
Why waste time and money travelling when all you have to do is switch on your pc? By the time you’ve travelled to and from your city casino, you could have played numerous games at an online casino in the comfort of your own surroundings.
The Safety Element.
There can be a safety issue when visiting the traditional casino, especially for women and people travelling on their own. The average casino can be a bit intimidating for single women so the online casinos provide an obvious solution by making it possible to play from home in safety. According to the media a very large percentage of online casino players are now female.
No Smoking Problems
Speaking from my own experiences I’ve found smoking to be a real problem especially when the casinos become busy. It’s a known fact that most heavy gamblers seem to be heavy smokers too, and at times the smoke can become unbearable. Even with air conditioning and the extractor fans in operation the smoke never seems to clear properly.
If you’re a shy quiet person, then a busy casino is not for you. On a busy table, there can be a lot of noise as well as people pushing and shoving. At times it can be difficult to get near the table to place your bets. At home, you can play quietly on your own without all the hassles that we’ve already mentioned.
Many More Games Online.
The online casinos also offer many more games to choose from, far too many to mention in this article. Check it out for yourself, you’ll be amazed at the choice of games that the online casinos have to offer.
Methods Of Payment.
The traditional casinos usually only accept cash, but the online casinos offer dozens of ways of paying, mostly by credit card so there’s no need for hard cash.
Play For Free.
The online casinos will let you set up a dummy account so that you can practice without using real money. You can practice as long as you want until you’re confident enough to start playing for real.
Yes, free money. In order to get your business most casinos will offer you a free cash deposit. The amounts can be anything from $20 to $50, and in certain cases much higher so shop around for the best deals.
