Online Casinos vs. Land-based Casinos

Although land-based casinos are still widespread and quite popular today, more and more players prefer online casinos. And this tendency is quite understandable because online casinos can offer a lot to their players, but not everything. Let’s look at all the pros and cons.

You can stay at your own house

The main difference between both types of casinos is their location. To visit a land-based casino, you have to go or drive there.

Online casinos are always with their players. A good internet connection and a device allow quick and easy access to the world of games. Usually, one visits land-based casinos in the evening, at night, or on weekends. In an online casino, you can play at any time. In a land-based casino, you spend at least a few hours, because it is not worth spending less there. An online casino you can visit as many times as you like, and even for a few minutes.

You play alone and with the whole world

Usually, you visit a land-based casino with your friends, less often you go there alone. You play together with other players you can see and talk to. In an online casino, you play alone and with the whole world at the same time. You can even play with your friends at the same time without knowing about it.

Bonuses of different kinds

Land-based casinos can offer quite a few bonuses to their players, but can hardly compete with online casinos. In online casinos you can get such bonuses as bonuses for registration, deposit bonuses, cashback, free spins, personal rewards, you can participate in numerous lotteries, tournaments, and promotions of gaming operators. In a land-based casino, one can hardly find such tournaments, for example.

You can enjoy your favourite games for free

In a land-based casino, you play for real money. In an online casino, you can enjoy the gaming process itself and not just winnings. You can make no deposits and simply play with points.


In a land-based casino, you get your winnings immediately, in an online casino you have to wait a bit for the withdrawal to be processed. But online casinos always strive to make payouts as fast as possible, so even in an online casino, you can get your winnings in a few minutes. But it also depends on the payment method used, because it can take a while until you see money in your account.

A special atmosphere – hardly ever in online casinos

If you like the special atmosphere of gambling: talking to other players in person, ordering drinks, smoking a cigarette, playing with real casino chips, you can only find all that in a land-based casino.

Everyone decides for themselves where to play, both variants have benefits!
