When the Internet became the next big thing the casino industry didn’t take any chances. They immediately seized the opportunity and made many websites. Throughout the years they rebranded the classic casino games, introduced a spectrum of bonuses and rewards. The industry never stopped following technological trends and to make the websites more available they made mobile-friendly version and when the time came, they also made apps so people could play their favorite games anywhere.
With so much hype about online casinos, their original predecessors seem to have been forgotten. Despite that, land-based casinos are visited by hundreds of casino enthusiasts and still have a strong foothold in the casino industry. Some would argue that the casino of the future is any online casino which will mean that the brick-and-mortar casinos wouldn’t have a chance in the long run. Some would argue that regular casinos will still be popular and both viewpoints present the question: which casinos are better?
Rewards, Bonuses, and Promotions
Online casinos are great for beginners and experienced players. Novices can learn how to quickly play a game through the many bonuses and the pros can earn more rewards if they stick to a certain game. If they’re committed to a website long enough they’ll become a VIP member in a loyalty program which will bring them even more rewards. Land-based casinos have rewards and loyalty programs, but they’re not as rewardable as their online counterparts.
Classic casinos usually have a limited amount of slot machines and table games people can play. Online casinos, on the other hand, have hundreds of slot games and different versions of poker, blackjack, baccarat, roulette and other classic tabletop games. Combine that with free spins and no deposit bonuses and you’ll have loads of people playing those games and you’ll get the attention of those who are in it just for the fun.
The Convenience and Comfort Argument
When it comes to availability online casinos have the upper hand. The fact that they’re online makes them available 24/7. Plus, you can play the games on offer on your smartphone and tablet, all you need is an internet connection. Most people play from the comfort of their home which is, arguably, the best comfort to have. But being in your pajamas with clothes all over and the unwashed dishes in the sink isn’t a productive gaming atmosphere.
Comfort and Luxury come first when visiting casinos. Anyone who’s been to a casino like The Venetian, Caesar’s Palace or the Sun City Casino Resort will tell you it was an unforgettable experience. Casino resorts treat you like a king. You get a luxury suite, restaurants with first-class food and service and a competitive atmosphere when you enter the casino. Indeed, you can’t play all night long and sometimes you’ll have a strict dress code, but you would look slick and presentable in fancy clothes, which is what land-based casinos are all about.
All in all, even though online casinos will be a thing of the future they still have to find new ways to be as popular as land-based ones. The classic casinos will remain classic because of the atmosphere they bring with them which is hard to forget.
