Pros and Cons of Online Casino Games


Pros and Cons of Online Casino Games

Online casino games like slots and table games such as online blackjack and online roulette have taken the world by storm. Even though online gambling is still a relatively new industry, having gone from non-existent to wildly popular in 15 years or so – when studied more deeply, it’s easy to see why this is the case, and why so-called ‘real’ casinos are still worrying about the inherent popularity of the online variety.

Advantages

There are several benefits to playing online casino games but the main reason is the ease of playing at an online casino. It’s infinitely better than a real casino. Real casinos have opening hours, require travel to and from them and cannot compete with the comfort of playing in your own home, whenever you want. Online casinos capitalize on how easy it is to set up a business when compared to a real casino and as a result the market is saturated. There are more casinos online than any one person could play – offering far more choice and variety for online casino players than exists in real casinos, as well as increasing competition between companies. This bodes well for the player, as the fierce competition will force prices to play down and bonus offers up.

Many online casinos offer a huge array of different games for players to choose from, far more then what you could find at any land based casino. In addition to this, many online casino sites offer signup bonuses and promotions that can be enjoyed by all players as a way to attract new customers. Yet despite this, real casinos still exist and some companies are even expanding despite the onset of online casinos. Real casinos have not been rendered obsolete by the explosion in the online trade. Again, it’s easy to see why.

Disadvantages

The main downside of online casinos is the time it can take. To transfer money into your online casino account, play for a few hours, win a little money and then transfer it back into your own account can take anything up to 10 days. Compared to a real casino, where you can do all this in a couple of hours, for the impatient a real casino is always going to come out favorably. There are also more serious problems with online casinos, the worst being the lack of player support if something goes wrong. In a real casino, if you have a complaint about the way a game has gone or another player, it can be dealt with on the spot in person, either by dealing with the dealer of the game or by speaking to the casino floor manager. Some online casinos offers a 24-hour help service to try and keep this aspect when playing online, but it can never be the same and does in many cases fail. You may have to wait for hours for a complaint to be responded to.

So all in all, the pros and cons of playing online casino games are convenience and the gaming experience, but what it basically comes down to is personal preference.
