Online casino is easier for FAR than real life casinos. Especially when you’ve got to travel. Let me give you a rough idea of what our last trip to Vegas is all about.
Here’s what we spent (about) on our last trip: $400 (two round trip tickets from Portland) $70 for 1 week of airport parking $200 for 1 week of car rental, there are probably some things that I’m missing. But that’s about $2,300 in Las Vegas for a week. We typically range from $1,000 to $3,000 for each trip, depending on how long we plan to stay.
When you come from the east coast, you would also have to pay more on tickets. If you have pets, need babysitting, or if you don’t have access to a kitchen as we normally do, you would also have more expenses.
It’s all but easy to fly. You’re not at home either. You have no car of your own. You don’t have toys for your son. And to top it all off, you’re in a city you haven’t been living in, perhaps a place you’ve never been to before.
Now you’ve got to do what you should carry in your luggage. You need to work out how to cook without a kitchen (to cope with specific diets and picky eaters) well and cost effectively. And you need to work out where to go because you’re trying to find a grocery store in an area you’ve never been to.
Nothing’s going to be easier than opening your laptop or flipping on your computer, signing into your casino account and then starting to play.
Talking of mobile phones–you can always start a game from your computer whenever you leave the house. Somewhere you can be in line, waiting for a rendezvous, anything–it doesn’t matter.
It’s almost like enjoying a casino break, minus the cost of $2,000 +, flying hours, and the obligatory TSA poke and prod squad.
3. Many Games available
They have so much space between their walls to accommodate their employees, their kitchens, their restrooms, their hotel rooms and everything else that a brick and mortar casino has.
This sounds great except that: not every casino has the same coin, video poker, table game, or combination that you want.
Even if they do, they only have so many seats at their disposal. You may not be able to play even if they do.
Promotions operated by standalone casinos. The most popular one is a’ players pass’ where you gain points every time you play a game. You will later trade your points for a drink, space or tickets to a display consisting or heavily discounted.
This form of marketing is easy, but it pales compared to what an online casino has to deliver. There’s deposit bonus, refund bonus, free cash and cash back. That’s the iceberg’s edge. Often online casinos offer WAY more deals than this, and we’ve not even covered sportsbooks, poker rooms or bingo halls.
To be totally transparent–when you accept one of these deals, you DO have conditions that you need to fulfill. But the fact is, they are sold by online casinos, whereas offline casinos are not.
