Apart from the obvious differences, online casinos and land-based casinos are worlds apart in many other ways. Here are some of the main benefits of playing at online casinos compared to playing at land-based casinos that I have noticed since I first started playing online.
Online casinos tend to offer far more bonuses than land-based casinos. For example, you generally won't get a new player welcome bonus when you walk into a casino for the very first time, but pretty much every online casino in the world (apart from a small handful), offer new players some kind of guaranteed welcome bonus. This can include either free spins, a no deposit bonus, a matching deposit bonus, or a mixture of all three
The average RTP% (return to player percentage) payout rates for the games are much higher at online casinos than at land-based casinos. For example, the average payout rates at land-based casinos can, in some cases, be as low as 70.00%, but most online casinos have an average 93.00% to 98.00% payout rate
You don’t need to commute anywhere to get to an online casino, and you don’t need to adhere to a certain dress code to play online. Some people have to travel hundreds of miles to get to their nearest land-based casino, but an online casino is only ever a click away when using either a smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer
Contacting the casinos customer support department to test their knowledge and responsiveness.
There tends to be a much broader and more comprehensive range of games at online casinos compared to the number of games that you can find at your average land-based casino. All online casino games also have extremely wide betting ranges, catering to everyone from low rollers to high rollers, plus there’s also usually a FREE PLAY MODE when playing online - something which is generally NEVER available at a land-based casino
Online casinos are open 24 hours per day, seven days per week, whereas most land-based casinos are closed between certain hours and on certain days of the week
The player support is only ever a click away at online casinos. Sometimes it can be hard to find someone to help you at a land-based casino
You can often play to win bigger pooled jackpots when playing online
