ADVANTAGES OF ONLINE GAMBLING | WHY ONLINE CASINO GAMBLING?
There's no denying that playing at an online casino is a bit different than visiting a traditional brick-and-mortar casino somewhere in the city, or out on a resort like Gold Reef City or Sun City. There are a few key differences to playing at an online casino that, in our opinion, actually give it a significant edge over land-based casinos, both in playing features and in general operation.
THE ONLINE CASINO IS WHERE YOU ARE
One of the major beauties of playing at an online casino is that you don't have to travel to get there. There's no missioning to find parking, there's no having to crash at a hotel if you live too far way. You simply flip open your laptop, log on, and you're there.
This instant access feature actually changes the way you interact with casinos. Where previously you might only have indulged on a weekend or on a special occasion, you can now play whenever and wherever you want. Suppose you want to play a couple of hands of Blackjack during your lunch break? Well, now you can. Feel like spinning the Roulette wheel while waiting for a friend in the coffee shop? It's just a few clicks away.
ONLINE CASINO GAMBLING IS SECURE
Actually this is true in a number of senses, both the obvious and the less obvious. Firstly, we'll look at online security. All online casinos tend to use industrial grade encryption on their connections, so there's no need to worry about your personal information or credit card details falling into the wrong hands.
They take this stuff extremely seriously because an online casino gambling destination's reputation is paramount. The internet being what it is, if an online casino was a bit flaky on security, you'd hear about it on the review and forum websites pretty quickly and the casino will shut down within no time at all.
The less obvious – and extremely relevant in the South African context – security benefits to playing online is that all of the financial transactions are handled between the online casino and your bank. No cash involved.
How safe would you feel walking out of a land-based casino with the fifty grand that you'd just won in cash in your inside pocket? Sure you'd make it to your car? Sure someone wouldn't follow you home?
When you win at an online casino, the money is transferred into your bank account seamlessly. No one but you will know you're suddenly in the money.
ONLINE CASINO GAMBLING OFFERS MORE VARIETY
When a land based casino wants to offer new things, they have to get new machines in, get new tables in, or generally re-design their space. They tend to be loath to do this because of the sheer cost involved.
But at an online casino, adding new games is extremely simple, and in fact tends to happen more or less monthly at most sites. So, if you're the sort of person who always wants to be playing the latest and greatest games, then you're far more likely to be happy at an online casino than at a traditional land-based one.
