Why online casinos now rival real-life offerings

While some Santa Monica residents shoot hoops, eat local cuisine and attend a variety of art shows and performances, others are also fighting off any boredom and supplementing the Santa Monica lifestyle with a few games at an online casino. Of course, other options, such as binging a Netflix series and cooking up a feast appeal, but given the rise in smartphone usage has come a surge in online casino gamers. 

With this sudden rise in demand for online casinos has come less and less people attend real-life, land-based offerings. Of course, attending a land-based casino will always appeal and offers a memorable experience but, in the same way the retail world has had to embrace online technology, the casino gaming space is also thanks to the emergence of online gaming, with online casinos particularly booming. Why is this, though? What are the benefits of gaming at an online casino over an actual establishment where you can turn up in the flesh? Below is a look at some of the key reasons. 

A more casual gaming experience 

For starters, attending a land-based casino is usually a suave affair, particularly if you’re frequenting an establishment that is packed full of high rollers. For the average person, that type of setting can feel daunting and potentially put them off. As a result of this, the more casual gaming experience on offer at an online casino, which can be enjoyed at home from the comfort of your own phone, is a more attractive casino gaming experience for many. There are some great offerings out there, too, much like the hundreds of exciting casino games at Slots Heaven. American online casino gamers certainly aren’t short on options, with more and more online operators popping up on a regular basis. 

No queueing 

Another aspect of online casino gaming that can help seal the deal for many is the fact that you don’t have to wait to play specific games. Some land-based casinos can be packed full of people, delaying playing time and hindering the all-around casino gaming experience in the process. Online casinos don’t experience these issues.

Huge progressive jackpots

High payout percentages

When assessing which online casino games might appeal to you, it’s worth taking into account the payout percentages specific games have. Payout percentages are essentially the win rates players can expect when playing certain slots online. Ultimately, the slot games which boast higher payout percentages tend to have larger and more frequent wins available for their community of players. Online slots are, therefore, certainly more rewarding than many land-based casino games. In fact, online slots are said to have a 10% higher payout percentage than real-life casinos. 

Welcome bonuses and free money 

A contributory factor behind the rise in online casino gaming has to also be credited with the ways in which online casinos reward their players. For example, new members can be rewarded with free spins. Likewise, loyal online casino gamers are offered a range of incentives also, perhaps in the shape of special bonuses for making repeat deposits. Different online casinos offer different rewards, but on the whole they incentivise online casinos a great deal more than land-based casinos ever have.
