Online vs. Traditional casinos (Part 2)

The choice of the game

When it comes to game choice, playing online is a clear winner. Even the largest land casinos in the world cannot match the selection of games available online, where there is simply an amazing variety of games of all types. All common favorites such as Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Video Poker and Slot Machines are offered, as well as many more. You will also find, a lot of different variations of the games. Some of the best online have literally thousands of games you can play.


It can be quite frustrating if you pay a visit to a casino looking forward to a good session and find that you are very busy and cannot get a seat in your preferred game. This is unlikely to be a problem if you are in a large gambling complex like Las Vegas, but there are plenty of casino locations where you can experience long wait times during busy periods.

This, however, is not a problem when you are playing online. No matter how many people are playing online, you will never have to wait for a game.

Range of bets available

There's probably not a huge amount of difference between playing online and live when it comes to the range of bets available, except at the extremes. Players who prefer to play very low bets have more online options, as the minimum bets tend to be lower. Players who prefer really high stakes may possibly be better off in a traditional casino. With that said, the maximum bets available online are high enough for most players, but high rollers will find bets more accommodating in land establishments.

Bonuses and rewards

The bonuses that most online casinos give away are undoubtedly a great advantage of playing on the web, since you can get a lot of extra value on your deposits. In most places you will also get regular rewards based on your gaming activity, usually in the form of cash. You don't get bonuses the same way on land establishments, so playing online has the advantage, but you are rewarded for your gaming activity in many places. You can get free drinks, free food, reduced-rate accommodation, or even cash.

About live dealers

In recent years, a number of online casinos have added live dealer games to their features. These make the online experience as close as you could possibly be to playing live, as you can play against a real dealer. The games are played through a live video stream and have become very popular with players.


It is not really possible to say whether land casinos are better than online versions, or vice versa. Although they are very similar in some respects, they are also very different in others. The bottom line is that you don't have to choose one or the other; there is absolutely no reason why you can't choose both.

If you have always played only live, then we definitely suggest you try online gambling. As we have shown, there are some clear advantages to doing so. Similarly, if you have only played online, then you should try to visit a live venue at least once, even if it is only from experience.
