Online Casinos vs Brick and Mortar Casinos

In the old days (and by old days we mean like 15 to 20 years ago), you’re only real option to play casino games was to go to the closest casino and play. Now, thanks to the internet and developments in technology, you can play your favorite online casino games from anywhere in the world without leaving the comfort of your own home or office.

There are pros and cons of each that we wanted to dive into for you. Spoiler alert, we think the advancements in technologies make online a much better option, but we’re going to give you the pros of both sides below for completeness.

Comfort and Convenience

It’s no secret that getting all dolled up and going out to the casino is a lot of fun and something that people enjoy. The issue, though, is that it does end up being a lot of work. First, you have to live close to a casino or be prepared to travel/drive to get there. Next, you have to deal with the traffic, the parking, and the elements to get there. Don’t forget, though, if you have kids or pets you have to make arrangements to get them taken care of while you are gone.

Then once you’re at the casino, you usually have to work through the crowds of drunk people to try and get in line to wait for a spot at a crowded table. For some of you, this may sound like a good time. We can understand how this can be fun at times (see our next point below), but for the most part, we prefer the ease and convenience that comes with playing online.

You don’t have to drive or travel to the casino. You don’t have to deal with traffic and parking. You don’t have to worry about drunk people running into you and spilling their drinks on you. And most importantly, you don’t have to worry about waiting to get a seat at your favorite game. There is ALWAYS a seat open online no matter what time of the day or what day of the week you want to play.

There is just something awesome about being able to gamble and play your favorite games from home in your underwear (if you so choose).

The Social Factor

One thing that brick and mortar casinos have over online casinos is the social factor. If you’re looking to get a big group together to go out to the casino, that only works with brick and mortar spots. Yes, this does require more logistical planning but can be fun with the right group.

Online casinos are doing their best to catch up on this front and are starting to have live dealer tables where you can play the games with a living and breathing dealer and other players you can converse with. It’s definitely not the same, but definitely more social than things used to be.

Ultimately, it comes down to whether or not you are going to the casino to gamble or going for a social outing. If you are just going to gamble, you’re not going to be too concerned with this and will most likely want to opt for the convenience of online play. If you’re looking for a social outing and the gambling second place, brick and mortar might be right for you as long as you are close to a casino and ok with the added costs we’re going to talk about next
