Top 10 reasons gambling online is better than gambling at brick-and-mortar casinos

16 March 2016

There are loads of people who enjoy gambling but don't enjoy the casino experience. If you're one of them, fear not! Thanks to the miracle of 21st-century technology, you can now gamble online in the comfort of your own home — or in some cases, on your iPhone on your train ride into work.

Here are the top 10 reasons gambling online is better than gambling at brick-and-mortar casinos.

10. Parking
Parking charges were recently introduced at some Las Vegas casinos. This could signify a new monetization route by land-based casinos. If you play online, you merely park yourself on your couch or chair, and no one charges you.

9. Waistline watch and liver love
When playing at an online casino, you are limited in your alcohol intake by what is in your kitchen. Nobody is flouncing about laying the temptation of sweet cocktails before your eyes. When no one is plying you with difficult-to-resist freebies, your liver and waistline will thank you.

8. Location
Even if you live within a 30-minute drive of a casino, you still need to leave your home to get there. If you run into traffic, it can take longer than you anticipated. And then if you have a bad day at the tables or at the machines, you might go through your whole gambling budget in less than an hour. Sure, you can still lose when you're playing online at home, but at least if it happens on your laptop, you can just put on Netflix and watch the latest season of House of Cards.

7. Lower stakes
Ever sit down at a blackjack table in Atlantic City on a Friday or Saturday night? Good luck finding a table with less than a $15 minimum bet per hand. Online casinos offer stakes as low as $1 a hand, and you can play poker with blinds as low as $.01/$.02.

6. No people
Perhaps you aren’t the most social bod. If you play online, you’ll have no one in your ear either bantering or advising you on your gaming technique. Instead you could put on a nice opera CD, or tune into a radio station in a foreign language and maintain a calm demeanor, or learn German while playing. If you don’t like the casino, you are out of there within a couple of clicks. No highway home.

5. Special offers
Online casinos offer bonuses for deposits. You can locate the best deals online at Online Casino City, but always make sure you read the terms and conditions so you understand what you'll need to do if you want to cash out your bonus!

4. Lower risk of missing work
In a land-based casino you could very likely pick up a flu virus or some other ailment. This is less likely at home, where you dwell among your own germs and can always reach into the cupboard and drain a vitamin C drink should you feel a tickle coming on. Many casinos still permit smoking, an additional onslaught your lungs can do without — and one that may ultimately chase away hot dates, since the reek of cigarette smoke on clothing is off-putting.

3. Fewer distractions
There usually aren't any good-looking people in your home other than yourself and anyone else you may be living with. New good-looking or charming people can be very distracting and have an adverse impact on the outcome of your gambling adventures.

2. Multitasking
If you are waiting for a game to load or need to nip to the toilet, you can also put on a load of laundry or vacuum between hands. The full laundry basket will still be looking at you when you arrive home from a land-based casino.

1. Choice
There are never-ending choices online. Everything is available. Should you not like the game you're playing at the moment, there’s the entire range available to you. In a brick-and-mortar casino, there are physical space and gaming floor limitations, and there’s only the choice of what is on offer on the casino floor at a given time.

There are also nearly unlimited choices in properties, as well. The Online Casino City database lists 1,290 online casinos, and you can filter them based on language, your local jurisdiction and the currencies the property offers.

So log on today and see what's available to you. Perhaps you'll find that you enjoy gambling online even more than making your bets in a brick-and-mortar property!
