When you play at an online casino, you are essentially doing the same thing you are doing when you are in a land-based casino. But you are doing it in a much different way. Is that way better?

The most honest way to answer this is to say that it depends on what you, the consumer, or looking for. There are many pros and cons to gambling at an online casino, but judging from their popularity, the former certainly outweighs the latter.

Let's begin with the convenience factor. If it is a matter of simply being able to entertain yourself by playing games of chance, it is much easier to power up a computer or a mobile device and start playing immediately than it is to get dressed, get in a car, and travel to a physical casino. There is no parking to worry about, weather is not a factor, and there really is no one to interact with aside from the casino interface on your screen.

Of course, the drawback to all this is that if you are an "atmosphere" person, you might find something lacking. After all, we have to be frank about it; the physical excitement of the land-based casino isn't really going to be matched online. But that is why live dealer casinos have been so popular; they have served as a really good substitute, because you are getting the best of both worlds – being able to take advantage of the convenience, while at the same time playing against real dealers and real tables who are working from a real brick and mortar location.

Some people are sticklers for privacy, and is probably useful to have a discussion about which of the two different casino formats offers more of it. On the one hand, if you walk into a land-based casino, you can play with cash and no one necessarily knows who you are. Then again, there is the "eye in the sky" that is watching you at all times. And casino security is a very sophisticated thing these days. When you play online, there is a most always going to be a record of who you are, because that is what is going to be required in a transaction. After all, they have to know who is giving them the money and who has to get paid in the end. The only exception we can see is if you were using Bitcoin, and only your "wallet" number needed to be known.

One of the biggest advantages to the online casino over the land-based casino is that you are, without exception, going to get a bigger selection of games. You will have more slots to choose from, if that is the way you elect to go, and as for variations on table games, like blackjack, or on video poker, is really no contest. The floor space in a land-based casino is limited; there is much more room for a lot of games when the atmosphere is more "virtual."

Like we said, the pros outweigh the cons.
