7 Reasons Why Online Casinos Are The Best Casinos

Real-life casinos are good, but in our opinion, they’re not as good as online casinos. For a start, the brick-and-mortar casinos aren’t open right now. And who knows when they’ll be open again? If they open again. Some of them must have closed for good.

Besides that, why else do we think online casinos are the best casinos?

1: Online casinos give you the widest choice of games

Even in Las Vegas, you’ll never get the range of games that you’ll find online. There are tens of thousands of games online. You can choose from slots, poker, sports betting, bingo, baccarat, roulette, craps, etc.

Sure, in large casino towns like Las Vegas you’ll find all those games too, but there’s just more variety online by far.

You can also play more unusual games that you won’t necessarily find from casinos in your own country, e.g., the Chinese have lots of interesting games, like Sic Bo and Pai Gow. You can’t play those in many (any?) UK real-world casinos, but you can play them at some of our online casinos.

2: You can play live games at any time of the day or night

OK, so maybe you can do this in Las Vegas too, but I bet you don’t live in Las Vegas, do you? No, you don’t. It’s highly unlikely that your local casino has 24-hour live games.

But no problem. We live in the digital age, and you can just hop onto one of the hundreds of reputable casinos that the internet has to offer.

3: You can play for free!

I don’t think there are many real-life casinos where you can rock up and play for free, but the online casinos let you do it. They let you try before you buy or just play away as much as you want without spending a dime (well, 10pence, but that doesn’t have the same ring to it).

Obviously, you won’t be winning any money, but you won’t be losing any money either, and the best casinos are definitely the ones where you don’t lose money. Therefore, by logical reasoning, online casinos are the best!

4: Online casinos usually have more bonuses

Real-world casinos have some good comps, usually some chips with curry sauce, but they don’t offer as many perks as the online casinos do. With online casinos, you’ll get welcome bonuses, loyalty bonuses, bonuses for trying new games, birthday bonuses, VIP bonuses – pretty much any bonus you can think of.

In fact, they have so many bonuses that it can become a bit annoying having to play through the wagering requirements, but the best casinos will let you waive bonuses if you want.

5: You won’t end up in a dodgy den of iniquity

I’m not sure what a ‘den of iniquity’ is, but it doesn’t sound like a place you want to end up. In the UK, there are underground casinos. If you go looking for a real casino, you might end up at one of these places, especially if you live in Doncaster, where police have been investigating one such den.

6: No need to get dressed up

Going to a real-casino is great fun, and part of that fun is dressing in your posh clothes. I know some people rock up in jeans and a t-shirt, but any decent casino has a dress code that won’t let those ruffians in.

That’s fine when you’re in the mood for it, but what if you just want to chill in your PJs and play a few rounds of poker? Maybe you’re game’s better when you’re relaxed? That’s where the online casinos come into their own.

You can literally turn up naked and no one would bat an eyelid because they won’t know – unless you have some sort of catastrophic technical malfunction and somehow broadcast it to the internet. That’s not very likely but weird stuff can happen to even the most sensible and upright citizens.

7: Online casinos offer a range of payment methods

You might be able to pay with your debit card, credit card, or cash at the real-world casinos, but that’s nothing compared to the many choices of payment method for the online casinos.

Can you imagine going to a posh London casino and offering to pay using Bitcoin or Paypal? I don’t know, maybe I’m out of touch, but I don’t think they’re accepting those payment methods yet.
